Resonate VI- Sheep by Pink Floyd

Upside-Down V-Shaped Recovery posted this really cool link that takes a song from Pink Floyd called Sheep and synced it the Omaha Beach scene from Saving Private Ryan. Not only did it seem to resonate well with the theme of the movie as men are sacrificed for the dogs of war, the music seems to match the pace of of the action. The other thing that I liked is that the song is obviously inspired by George Orwell’s Animal Farm. This classic book was a satire of the Russian Revolution and the dangers of collectivism. I use the phrase from the book, “some pigs are more equal than others” which is an obvious attack that that at the top of every collectivist system there are Elites that are more powerful then the sheep that follow them. The band resonated with the work of George Orwell and made the concept album called Animals.

Just like all of the other songs in the Resonate series, good art resonates something deeper than our logical minds can express. When you get a shiver up your spine that music, movie or work of art it vibrates with something inside of you like a tuning fork. Deep seated emotions and feelings are expressed by the artists and inspire us to higher and better things. This kind of work serves to make the observer think on a deeper level by questioning a preconceived notion or think logically about something.

This positive emotional artistic force is the direct opposite of the emotional programming used by the Elite in their propaganda machine. Through the used of emotions like fear and anger they corral the sheep into following the wolves into their problem-reaction-solution paradigm. One only needs to look at the effort after 9/11 to see how we were led into multiple senseless wars and massive debts for the benefit of some pigs that are more equal than others.

Pink Floyd – “Sheep” vs. ‘Saving Private Ryan’ by kronosposeidon

Sheep- Pink Floyd

Harmlessly passing your time in the grassland away;
Only dimly aware of a certain unease in the air.
You’d better watch out!
There may be dogs about
I looked over Jordan, and I’ve seen
Things are not what they seem.

That’s what you get for pretending the danger’s not real.
Meek and obedient you follow the leader
Down well trodden corridors into the valley of steel.
What a surprise!
A look of terminal shock in your eyes.
Now things are really what they seem.
No, this is not a bad dream.

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want
He makes me down to die
Through pastures green He leadeth me the silent waters by.
With bright knives He releaseth my soul.
He maketh me to hang on hooks in high places.
He converteth me to lamb cutlets,
For lo, He hath great power, and great hunger.
When cometh the day we lowly ones,
Through quiet reflection, and great dedication
Master the art of Karate,
Lo, we shall rise up,
And then we’ll make the bugger’s eyes water.

Bleating and babbling we fell on his neck with a scream.
Wave upon wave of demented avengers
March cheerfully out of obscurity into the dream.

Have you heard the news?
The dogs are dead!
You better stay home
And do as you’re told.
Get out of the road if you want to grow old.

  • The piece “There Are Monsters, And They Walk Among Us.” – Jesse’s Café Américain points to how these sociopaths, who believe they are more equal than others, are able to herd the masses and resonates the Banality of Evil which was put to song in “Us and Them.” -Pink Floyd See the piece “There are Monsters…”

    I will start a series soon “The Founding Fathers: Myth Aside, This Is A Vision Gone Wrong” that will end with an analogy of “Wish You Were Here”

    So, so you think you can tell
    Heaven from Hell,
    Blue skies from pain
    Can you tell a green field
    From a cold steal rail?
    A smile from a veil?
    Do you think you can tell?

    Did they get you to trade
    Your heroes for ghost?
    Hot ashes for trees?
    Hot air for a cool breeze?
    Did you exchange
    A walk on part in the war,
    For a lead role in a cage?…
    – Pink Floyd

    THE AMERICAN PEOPLE MUST REALIZE – WE ALLOWED THE LINE BETWEEN HEAVEN AND HELL TO BECOME BLURRED AND EXCHANGED OUR HERO’S FOR GHOST. TO TAKE DOWN THE PRESENT SOCIOPATHIC LEADERSHIP WE MUST ALL TAKE A WALK ON PART IN THE WAR. FAILURE TO DO SO INSURES WE WILL PLAY “A LEAD ROLE IN A CAGE”
