You dream of a future in which humans and nature live together harmoniously and appreciatively and respectfully? Like in the indigenous traditions? The song of "Back To Nature" picks you up there and takes you on a visual, auditory and emotional journey.
Maybe you know this too? You feel separated from nature, from your fellow human beings, maybe even from yourself? You long for community and harmonious coexistence and want to feel and experience connectedness.
Nightmares on Wax express exactly these wishes with the song "Back to Nature". The idea of living together in a respectful way and connecting nature and people is conveyed with musical sounds and the words of Kuauhtli Vasquez, a member of the indigenous organization Indigenous Youth Council in Chiapas, Mexico. In the video illustrated with collages and images from magazines, postcards and vintage films, the song takes you to other worlds.
Indigenous cultures remind us that all people are connected and share a common spirit and consciousness. Recognizing this connection ensures that we care for the earth and each other. Visual and auditory expressions of "Back to Nature" encourage us to approach life with love and respect, and to give back to nature as it gives back to us. After all, nature created us to live together and share the world.
Let yourself be carried away by the poetry, the sounds and the visual impressions.
[lyrics: words by Kuauhtli Vasquez]
but yet they want to be separated
like, "my life, my ideas"
they don't realize that all humans share a huge pool of conscious, of thought
all human thought vibrates at a certain frequency
we're all in communication
you know, when you exhale I breathe the air you breathe
we're all brought together really
this is the way nature designed it
so that we will be sharing the world, together
there is a time of understanding mother Nature
and how nature is functioning
nature and the earth
understand this relationship
like the Earth itself is a huge magnet
so, it's creating energy, a magnetic force
the Earth has given it to us in a perfect and natural way
everything in the material world comes from the spirit
The reason nature is alive is
because there's spirit that's
so we say everything comes from the spirit
from this energetic life source
and humans they just want to take
they gather, they take
they are taking, just taking
what the ancients say you have to give first
to the spirit
for everything that you want to receive
take a couple of breaths of air
it's the same air my family is breathing
the same air they are breathing
in every part of the planet
let's take care of this
we are all eating the food that Mother Earth gives us
everybody's food comes from the same earth
let's create that global consciousness
this planetary way of living
in our culture
you don't need to say please
everything's there for you
you just need to know how to ask for it in a respectful way
so you ask for it with love
accept it with love
and then you give love back
you don't give trash back
you don't give pollution back to nature
you give love
you give some of your energetic goodness back to the earth
