ROCK MUSIC INITIATIVE: THE CD AND THE MUSIC VIDEO “BACK TO LIFE”

The band ‚The swipes‘ from Frankfurt/Germany has produced the benefit-Maxi-CD ‚Back to Life‘, where all profits will be donated to our projects. Consistently they also produced a video on their own expenses in which children of our children’s home in India and of our project schools in Chitwan (Nepal) did act as interprets. The idea of this video is to symbolically give needy children and adults a voice and face – that is why the band itself decided against any presence of themselves in the clip. The video can be found at the end of this page. We are enthralled about this initiative and thank you very much. It is great that we can now draw attention to our work via music. The CD can be ordered from the band and bought at their concerts. For further information: www.the-swipes.com. Following you can find the lyrics to the song:

 

BACK TO LIFE

Back to life. That’s the right direction to give back hope.
Helping people to help themselves.
Back to life. Our idyllic world is on the ropes.
Time to share some wealth.

One moment can change all your life.
When a lonely leper asks you how you are.
One word gives you a taste for your life.
He cares ‘bout you – that’s what I call bizarre.
14 years as an untouchable without no name.
Surviving in the streets of India ain’t no game.

That it happens at the other side of the world
doesn’t mean it isn’t real.
That we close our eyes and turn our heads
shows how less we feel. Life is no good deal.

Back to life. Every child deserves a future with a chance
without violence and abuse.
Back to life. It’s the chance to give our hands.
If we are serious they won’t lose.

One moment can improve all your life
when a street child gives you a warm smile.
One sight gives you a taste for your life.
Let’s give the child a perspective for a while.
Cause for six years no one fulfiled her needs.
Every month she gets raped till she bleeds.

That it’s not mentioned in the television news
doesn’t mean it isn’t real.
That we close our minds and turn our heads
shows how less we feel. Life is no good deal.
