Water in Music

If you know me at all, you know that my favorite band is Disturbed.  The first single off of their newest album, Asylum, is called Another Way to Die.  It is about how we are destroying our world in every way, and no one is doing anything about it.  In their music video, there are numerous shots of water, to the point where it is almost the main focus of the video.  The video takes place in a future world, where no one took heed to the warnings of what was happening to our world, where clean, drinkable water is a privilage and is strictly regulated with the people.  I know that it is metal and that not a lot of people like it, but at least just watch the video.  If you are really THAT against it, just turn off the sound and watch the video.  WARNING: some people might find the video a little bit disturbing, no punn intended.

Here are the lyrics:

The indulgence of our lives
Has cast a shadow on our world.
Our devotion to our appetites
Betrayed us all.

An apocalyptic plight.
More destruction will unfold.
Mother Earth will show her darker side
And take her toll.

It’s just another way to die.
There can be another reason why.
You know we should have seen it coming.
Consequences we cannot deny will be revealed in time.
Glaciers melt as we pollute the sky.
A sign of devastation coming.
We don’t need another way to die.
Can we repent in time?

The Time bomb is ticking and no one is listening.
Our future is fading.
Is there any hope we’ll survive?

Still, we ravage the world that we love.
And the millions cry out to be saved.
Our endless maniacal appetite.
Left us with another way to die.
It’s just another way to die.

Can we repent in time?

Greed and hunger led to our demise.
A path I can’t believe we followed.
Black agenda’s rooted in a lie.
Will we repent in time?

Species fall before our very eyes.
A world that they cannot survive in
Left them with another way to die.
Are we dead inside?

The time bomb is ticking and no one is listening.
Our future is fading.
Is there any hope we’ll survive?

Still, we ravage the world that we love.
And the millions cry out to be saved.
Our endless maniacal appetite.
Left us with another way to die.
It’s just another way to die.

Still, we ravage the world that we love.
And the millions cry out to be saved.
Our endless maniacal appetite.
Left us with another way to die.
It’s just another way to die.
oooh can we repent in time?
It’s just another way to die.
oooh can we repent in time?
