RIVERSIDE – Progger stellen `Self-Aware´ Single und Video vor

Die polnischen Prog Pioniere RIVERSIDE veröffentlichen am 20. Januar 2023 ihren neuen Studiodreher „ID.Entity“ und vorab den Schlusstrack des Albums im Video: `Self-Aware.

Sänger/Bassist Mariusz Duda über den neuen Song:

“‘Self-Aware’ is a song which summarises the entire album, and talks about how it’s difficult these days to live in a society and ignore all the social changes, how you can’t simply be passive, ‘shut yourself off’, or ‘hole up deep in the woods’. We need each other in order to change something in our lives. Not everything can be done single-handedly; ‘I have to be better than others, I have to be the best’ is not a good mantra. We need cooperation to achieve goals. And it’s important that this message comes not from a solo artist, but from a band, whose success lies mostly in cooperation within the band and interaction with their listeners.”

Lyrics:

I told myself I don’t need it

Scrolling watching reading

I told myself I don’t need it

To know what kind of world we live in

 

I shut myself off from

The whole broken world

I told myself I don’t need it

That this is not any of my concern

 

But the truth is that I cannot live without you

And I should do something

Cannot just stand and watch

 

I told myself I don’t need it

And I can numb this feeling

And I can hole up deep in the woods

Far from everyone

 

And then I realised

I’d lived in self-denial

And didn’t even try

To understand

To recognise

 

Just want to be close to you

I want to feel you close to me

I want to be close to you

 

I’m sick and tired

Of our fighting

On a minefield

Of the social distance warnings

The future is in our hands

But first

Let’s

Unsubscribe the ones who make us hostile

Unsubscribe the ones who make us hostile

Unsubscribe the ones who make us hostile

 

I want to feel you close to me

Cause I still believe

I will find the answer

But I already know

I need you for

The feeling of

Being complete for the first time

 

But the truth is that I cannot live without you

And I should do something

Cannot just stand and watch

 

I told myself I don’t need it

Scrolling watching reading

I told myself I don’t need it

To know what kind of world we live in

 

And then I realised

I’d lived in self-denial

And didn’t even try

To understand

To recognise

 

Just want to be close to you

I want to feel you close to me

I want to be close to you

Being complete for the first time
