7fc6b109a6 1981 - Where Did All My Good Dreams Go? - RADIOLANTAU.COM

Here's one of the songs that'll feature on this week's Just Some Punk Songs show (8pm (GMT) today) https://www.facebook.com/events/844636042584478/). It's by anarcho punk band 1981 and

it's the lead track on their recent Acts Of Rebellion ep. Based in Turku, Finland, they've been releasing quality fare for the best part of a decade. It's been 3 years since their last release but the new ep was definitely worth the wait. It's self released on 7" by 19 in 81 Records and you can find it on Bandcamp :

The ep deals with themes of conformism, despair, fear and anxiety in a world we're destroying. They encourage us to speak up and voice our opposition to force fed lies. As the record sleeve says, "Challenge the stereotypes. If you're not ashamed of who you are, the outsiders' opinions begin to grow mute!"

This is a beautiful song that asks if there's not a better way of living. Where Did All My Good Dreams Go?....

What happened to all my hopes and dreams?
Where did they all go?
What happened to my hopeful thoughts
That we could build a better world
These days are filled with fear
These days are filled with fear
These days are filled with fear
These days are filled with fear
Where did all my good dreams go?

This is a cold world
Our ignorance has helped to create
It's what we leave for our children
That our selfishness has dealt their fate

All this fear and war...
I can't take it anymore
There's gotta be a better existence than this, I know
Where did all my good dreams go?

These are our last days
We live in fear, in fear of the unknown
Never care to question the truths we're not told
Nor the facts we are never shown

All this fear and war...
I can't take it anymore
There's gotta be a better existence than this, I know
Where did all my good dreams go?

This is a sick world
People bickering and fighting over material greed
Lives lived so blindly, rather than meeting each others' needs
This world has become my nightmare
Nature torn down and replaced
No respect for its resources
We just take and take
And take and take
And take and take
And take and take
And take and take
And take and take
And take and take
And take and take
And take

All this hatred, fear and war...
I can't take it anymore
There's gotta be a better existence than this, I know
In my heart for sure

What happened to my hopes and dreams?
Where did they disappear?
What happened to all my hopeful thoughts
That we could build a better world?

Where did all my good dreams go?
Where did all my good dreams go?
Where did all my good dreams go?
Where did all my good dreams go?
Where did all my good dreams go?
Where did all my good dreams go?
Where did all my good dreams,
Where did all my good dreams go?
