about

Today’s society is ridden with contradiction. We are taught to play peacefully growing up, and yet we go to war constantly. Some folks starve in the street while others have more money than they know what to do with. Honesty is universally valued and yet our media is full of lies and distortions. This song is a plea to parents to raise their children to think freely outside of society’s boundaries and to practice peace.

lyrics

Please mothers, save your sacred children
Protect them from the aimless humans
Run off to find sanctuary
Live in harmony and secrecy

Cease the lies that seep out through the screens
And pour with ink through printing press machines
Escape before more reach their ears
And exploit all of their hopes and fears

Don’t sign their lives away on paper
Allow a life outside the cage
Don’t make a number out of nature
All that is, is existence
We’ve got to be our own savior

How is it pitch black suits in big glass buildings
Sit inside and make a killing
While others depend on sidewalk dealings
Just to sleep beneath a ceiling?

Now, words from men are starting war
Men who forgot what words are for
Many will lose their lives without need
Because many have lost their heads to greed

The machine won’t learn to love
It spreads and burrows underground,
Soars and eats the sky above
So embrace the calling in your blood
Find the freedom we’re all dreaming of
Be the outlier

Please, mothers, save your sacred children
Protect them from the aimless humans
Find them hope, find them release
Show them the meaning of peace

Don’t sign their lives away on paper
Allow a life outside the cage
Don’t make a number out of nature
All that is, is existence
We’ve got to be our own savior
Believe you’re who you feel you are
Don’t be a number when you’re nature
Be the outlier

The name, Dear Indugu, is inspired by the film 'About Schmidt' and is a metaphor for the universal self-healing power of expression. With potent lyrics, strong dynamics, and a firm commitment to originality, the Bay Area based band leaves a lasting impression. ... more
