Imagine

Amritas includes a take-off of John Lennon’s Imagine in his last post. I always found the original chilling enough. It’s a beautiful tune, one that reverberates in my head – like a beautiful but evil nemesis. It proposes to solve all the world’s problems by eliminating everything that makes life worth living, and winds up:

You may say I’m a dreamer,
but I’m not the only one,
I hope some day you'll join us,
And the world will live as one.

Lennon’s idea of “one” of course.

Chilling.

UPDATE: Of course, Amritas’s version is not really a take-off at all; it just fills in some of the details.
