How can you be so incredibly stupid as world leaders Donald Trump (USA), Vladimir Putin (Russia) and Xi Jinping (China). Probably extremely intelligent in their way as they successfully manipulate their own countries to get themselves unlimited power. However, I do not intend to interfere in that debate but …
…hey guys, why can’t you sit down in a little timbered cabin in Northern Norway, eat some good food, have a good drink, tell some nice jokes, take a long walk in the mountains and after this decide to make this the world a better place.
That is front-page news and I promised with that decision I even think you scared the corona virus to death. Then I can promise that you will have unlimited power, be loved by your people and can sleep good at night and don’t need any security guards – no the whole world wanna make sure you’re safe.
The songs on this EP are written during the years 1964 – 1972 and are incredibly – scary enough – more current today, fifty years later. I get scared, worried and so incredibly cursed. As an outspoken Christian, you may wonder – and some of my colleagues says with a ironic smile – can you ask God to change this, Joshua! Listen, we have got our earth from God to take care of and farm properly. We´ve all been given our own lives to care for and farm and we’ve been given a sense to use in the right way. Who said it’s easy – I just get so scared.
