God’s change, depending on the evolution of a society, though they are often used as pseudo-spiritual guidance for a purpose.
Aimed at serving the young feudal lords and the global elite.
They have now lost their anthropomorphic features, and are copies of kings and masters.
Today’s gods are vaguer in nature and identify with such concepts as progress, development, money, and economy.
People who do not follow their rules are easily sacrificed on their altar.
But the greatest sacrifice is made by those who follow their rules, they lose their souls.
As a result, today’s society is almost like the dystopian “Brazil” (1985), a Terry Gilliam movie.
Where ignorance is considered a privilege for the young gods and especially for their self-appointed representatives.
The phrase ‘I do not know‘, not in the Socratic sense of accepting and seeking knowledge, but in the arrogant ignorance of the rejection of knowledge, becomes a passport for professional rehabilitation.
“Ne znam” means “I don’t know” in almost all Slavic dialects, and is the song from BAiLDSA‘s 3rd album, “WarZone” (Mantra Records / 2018).
“’Ne znam’ is in BAiLDSA lyrics and music and was released as an e-single in October 2017 along with a video of filming at the 2016 and 2017 Street Mode Festival.
It is included in BAiLDSA’s 3rd album “WarZone” (Mantra Records / 2018). It’s on the playlist of concerts since 2016.“
Thanos Gutanos, the guitarist of the band, presents the song.
He then reveals how the song was created: “Musically we wanted to create a strong, danceable, garage-punk-indie track with roots elements.
The lyrics speak of a utopian society where the fundamental concepts of western society as we know it has no meaning.“
Its basic concepts are about freedom and access to one’s basic needs.
Ignorance of them, in effect, “sets the carpet” for a dystopian society, which gives value only to what it can exploit.
The central idea of the song is its refrain:
“Νe, ne znam, ne vidim, ne čujem by the way you people tell me how ya doing?
ne, ne znam, ne vidim, ne čujem by the way you people tell me are you grooving?”
“First music, then lyrics. Although the verse was an idea long ago,” Thanos says in the question of how the track was written.
There are still many villages in Greece that use Slavic dialects, mainly in northern Greece.
They also have their own expressions, almost conspiracies, so they can’t be understood by someone who is not local.
“At the Pozar Festival in Loutraki Pella the slogan of the area is ‘ne znam, ne videm, ne čujem’ (in the dialect termed as ‘local’) which means ‘I didn’t know, I didn’t see, I didn’t hear’”, Thanos continues to tell us for strange events related to the song.
I guess the locals immediately embraced the song.
As for the message conveyed by the guitarist of the band:
“The song describes a different state of ecstasy to emphasize and highlight the ugliness of everyday life in a large urban center where time is measured only as money.
The message is the urge for change in our daily lives.“
As in Terry Gilliam‘s film, love is the one that breaks the routine and actually shows the reality to the hero.
A few lyrics and a few notes may have such a force.
