Every story is different, with a common denominator of pain, fear, weakness…
They hide many situations behind them, difficult…, unthinkable ones!
But each one of them has “super” heroes!
Those who fight with their demons and come out victorious from a difficult and painful battle!
This is the story of the song of Φata Morgana, described by Panos Samaras, guitarist, lyricist, composer …
“Seeing a documentary about people who go into detoxification clinics in an effort to get rid of their personal demons, unconsciously I took the paper and a pen.”
He begins the description of the most difficult, full of taboo stories…
“I felt the need to write something about “super” heroes of different types. For heroes of their own self.
A self that is part of a unique and often invincible “enemy” … the addiction. “
Panos puts us straight to the heart of the story.
Dependent people do not have “us” as enemies, but themselves!
Whoever has not experienced their pain, the screaming in the night, their demons, does not know what the addiction is!
You have no idea what it’s like to live in a permanent state of vigilance!
The abuse, whether drug or alcohol, is always there, lurks, waiting for you to come back!
In a conversation I had with a friend once, he explained to me that:
“The chronic addicted have a vulnerable body, which is asking for its dose sooner or later!
Rehab never ends! As long as you live, you fight with your “enemy self”. You’re fighting to stay clean! “
Not always successful, but those who succeed, for us, for Panos, for the thinking people, are “super” heroes.
Their demons can be fought if they have their family beside them who will be next to them at every step, every scream, every crying.
And they will be able to break out of their addictions!
In closing on the description, Panos says:
“We grow with a life full of stories of Paradise and Hell, without realizing that everything is here.
Moreover, as Shakespeare said, “Hell is empty and all the demons are here …“
This is a story we’ll listen to from Φata Morgana on their third album that is expected.
A story that a hero is the one who is fighting for his life against an unequal enemy!
A piece of advice… These people need love, respect, trust, and help!
They are challenging when they are in this pain, but if you stay next to them, there are ways to help them.
It needs time, patience, perseverance but they deserve it and they should have our attention …
