2018, chapter 43: ‘Week Without You’ by Miley Cyrus (nr. 155)

A war needs armies to fight them. An army needs motivation. Chainsmoker is providing said motivation, but it’s weighing on her. And her troops feel her control slip. They start to see her as commanding and having a bad attitude and keeping them from the freedom they once had. Do what they want, kiss who they want, wear what they want. Chainsmokers magic is strong, so they don’t stray. The time before her feels so long ago and they remember how she made them feel good, even if she doesn’t now. They would miss her, if she was gone.

2018, Chapter 35: ‘Adventure Of A Lifetime’ by Coldplay (nr. 147)

Chainsmoker is rallying her troops.

She calls for them to turn their magic on. They are legends and diamonds taking shape. They can no longer remain unorganized, They must dream bigger. She invites them to join this adventure with her. They will get each other through the fight. They will be free and owned by no one.

They respond well to her words and feel their hearts beating underneath their skin, like they’re alive again. She calls out “Woohoo” and they shout it back at her.

63:What Have We Done? (Beginning of the 2017-story)

‘Earth Song’ by Michael Jackson

This story happens to everyone. It happens everywhere. But it does have a main character more all-knowing than I, the (supposedly) all-knowing narrator. I’ll call this character Abraham.

 

Abraham is the only son of The Creator Of It All. He sees everything. Hears everything. Feels everything. And he cries. He prays on behalf of all people to The Creator Of It All. He speaks of promises of light, happiness and peace, The Creator Of It All gave based on dreams, the creator shared with Abraham. Dreams they drifted far away from.

He speaks of an earth destroyed. Of bloodshed brought on by his and The Creator Of It All’s hands. Children dead from war. Kingdoms turned to dust. Dying animals. The common man imprisoned. Death.

He asks, where they went wrong, hoping The Creator Of It All will change it and make it better.

This is the new-ish beginning, I mentioned in my last post. It’s a new story with a new focus, but it takes place in the same universe and It’ll be connected somehow. I will as always explain the important aspects of the previous story when that happens, as well as what lead to the events of the current chapter.

I’ll also empathise that, for the purposes of this blog, I don’t care what the song is actually about. I will of course respect it and use both the words and tone, but I will divorce it from its original context and twist the meaning until it fits my context. Hence this is not how I actually interpret this song. But it is what I get out of it, when I strip it of real-world-context.

I mention it here, because this is second time I deal with a song most people would respect so much they might find offence in me taking it apart and putting it back together like some sort of Frankenstein-monster, and I wanted to make it clear that it is not done out of disrespect.
