Modus Vivendi Edit #6
Artist Notes: Modus Vivendi
Ya know, maybe I watched Robin Hood movies too many times as a child.
Modus Vivendi is a song of tension, agreements/arrangements and the perceptions buried within (implied, perceived or expressed). Held or broken, they are what they are… no true bonds, there are never allegiances that are ever truly binding in the prevalent culture… just empty agreements that represent government/business assurances that the plan, will be adhered to by ‘all’ parties for some period of time.
Agreements occur at every level in life; and at times, in order to fulfill the terms of agreements, all parties of said agreement must come to some reasonable accord on terms. These terms are often accepted until a more…… suitable……. arrangement can be found. They are however, pretentious at best.
Modus Vivendi, should be accepted as a commentary or possibly an observation of the status between big business and the “common people” as it were; or as a critique on social relationships, or maybe even (although far be it from me to ever think of such a thing), the relationships between the governments (they are plural) that enslave all of us regardless of family, ethnicity; origin, or culture, and support the scourge that has plagued the planet since its creation.; greed, prejudice and hate and those that proliferate it and those that deem themselves.... SUPERIOR!
However, turnaround is fair play in a society that lacks leadership worth an honorable mention, turnaround is an acceptable eventuality. And as it is said, tables will turn.
