Línger – Eyes Wide Open (Gotye Cover) by Línger
Contemporary consumers are bombarded daily with headlines of shootings, mindless killings, starvation, devastating statistics, pain, loss, heartless decisions and a crumbling environment. From our newsfeeds to newspapers, we are confronted with information that can make you feel like the world is disintegrating before our very eyes. This plethora of devastation and its sheer reach and scale can make it feel as though there is little we can do as individuals to make a change or difference.
Gotye’s ‘Eyes Wide Open’ resonates with me now, more than ever. It feels crucial for us all to be reminded that, ‘we’re all in the same boat, staying afloat for the moment’. We are all finding our way on this earth. We are all made equal. We are all worthy of justice. We all deserve safety. It is time to show our humanity.
