‘Talking Weapons And Peace’, released by Mira Sound Germany on Audio-CD, DVD and as Download, is Michel Montecrossa’s New-Topical-Song dedicated to the victims of the bloody Russia-Ukraine War.
‘Talking Weapons And Peace’ is a profound statement of insight into the complex interdependence of weapons and peace in a world of ideologies and intolerance.
Michel Montecrossa in his New-Topical-Song ‘Talking Weapons And Peace’ sees the painful need for armies and weapons as a bitter last minute cure for the illness of deadly fanaticism that is leading to catastrophes like the Russia-Ukraine War.
But much more than counting on weapons Michel Montecrossa looks beyond the immediate violence and narrow-mindedness of dehumanization to the evolution of strong human unity ethics and true peace diplomacy as the effective long-term answer that can prevent self-radicalization from becoming so obsessive that only war and violence seem to remain as remedy.
Michel Montecrossa says:
“My New-Topical-Song ‘Talking Weapons And Peace’ is triggered by the Russia-Ukraine War. In the world of today ideologies can’t be killed. They can only be changed for the better by strong human unity ethics and true peace diplomacy convincingly backed by strong armies.”
TALKING WEAPONS AND PEACE
At the time when I wrote this song / the earth was a divided world. / Mankind stood in weapons. / Strong weapons for strong peace. / Good weapons for strong soldiers, they say.
A divided world of a divided mind. / The red line dividing war from peace / is drawn by force of weapons. / Strong weapons for strong peace. / Good weapons for strong soldiers, they say.
Soldiers must be strong with the ethics / of peace through courage and will / to end the war before it begins. / Strong armies for strong peace. / Good armies for strong security, they say.
The honor of armies is to strengthen diplomacy. / The honor of diplomacy is to end insecurity, / to bring peace through conviction. / Strong diplomacy for strong peace. / Good diplomacy for strong security, I say.
At the time when I wrote this song / strong weapons stood against the evil / securing time for peace and union building. / Strong weapons for strong peace. / Good weapons for strong people, they say.
You must be master of your weapon – / the weapon must not master you. / You must prevent the war, not start it. / Stand for the true, the right, the vast / and make the loving peace last, I say.
