As the title suggests, the track deals with the history of the human race. In particular our destruction of the world around us, and the repeated mistakes we make. Ranging from the very personal to the global, we all make mistakes, and yet, we rarely seem to be able to take those experiences with us to prevent future failure.

As a student I adored history lessons, due to the fascinating stories. I admit, I had very good history teachers, they knew how to tell a good story and that is essential. Yet I hate to see that history itself is looked upon as a boring subject…

With this song I tried highlighting my interest (passion is too strong of a word) in history and it’s relevance to the world we live in now, and the future world we’re building. Accompanied with the music video (watch on youtube: youtube.com/watch?v=mIgO8rMw9Wc), which portrays humanities repeated war mistakes, from the very beginning of the big bang up until the most recent conflicts…

On Offical site the whole making of the song.
I see the same things happening every day, every night, every time and every hour
on this planet, the same thing every time
I see the same things happening every day, every night, every time and every hour
on this planet, the same thing every time

To all the newborns, and the young lives
All the monuments
For all the battles fought and the lives ruined
Families torn apart
We owe them lessons from the past
Recognize ignorance, lessons from the past

I see the same things happening every day, every night, every time and every hour
on this planet, the same thing every time
I see the same things happening every day, every night, every time and every hour
on this planet, the same thing every time

To all the life living on the big blueWarHeroes02
For all the chaos and bombs
Mistakes that were made
Habitats ruined and blood poured all just for gold
We owe them lessons from the past
Recognize ignorance, lessons from the past

I see the same things happening every day, every night, every time and every hour
on this planet, the same thing every time
I see the same things happening every day, every night, every time and every hour
on this planet, the same thing every time

Nothing changes, nothing ever changes,
Nothing changes, nothing ever changes…
We owe them, lessons from the past
We owe them, lessons from the past…
