The Overview Effect

Syvis & Friends | 10.01.2017 | Pop

The idea for this song came from a thought to watch the Earth from space, then all the wars would seem senseless compared to the uniqueness of our planet. A little later I read that there is a name for this experience: overview effect. And now this song rises even higher on the orbit, when Miira sings it with her heavenly voice.

I can see the lights
from a distance
from the orbit
It's a humbling experience to see
the overview effect.

But I don't see the cause for neglect
heedless of her worth
Lift up your spirit and pause
take a look on Earth.

I have seen the wars
the destruction of the forests.
I have realized
uniqueness sculpted in
our sphere of life.


There won't come a second chance
no place to start over
I wish I'll get one more glance
at the skyscrapers in the clouds.

I can see one man
can't distinguish any borders
I can feel the love
for the land of fellowship
the soil of nurturing.

Toimii toimii ja toimii. Tätä oli kiva kuunnella näin loppuillan ratoksi. Maapallo pyörii mielessä.

Tätäkin kuunnellessa mieli lepää. Hieno sävellys tyylikkäällä ja vivahteikkaalla sovituksella. Kitaroiden osalta soitto ”helmeilee” mukavasti ja viulut tuovat oman lisänsä. Laulutulkinta jälleen aivan poikkeuksellisen upea, täynnä lämpöä ja tunnetta.
