Brian Jonestown Massacre
Viholliseni Maala (In the Land of My Enemy)
from Revolution Number Zero, EP 2013


In 2012 wrote lyrics in broken Finnish for music composed by Anton Newcombe. He invited me with his band the Brian Jonestown Massacre to sing in front of large audience here in Columbiahalle, Berlin and i also joined them on stage in Helsinki, Finland. The song is about being “in the land of my enemy”. How we become “aliens” once we cross the governmental borders.

The meaning is hard to translate, but forms picture of seed, boat, awakening and scared bunny rabbit. Everyone is welcomed to interpret it as they desire. I believe in future without borders, without weapons of mass destruction and in sustainable symbiosis with nature and animal kingdom.
