The “Book of Songs” or “Shih Ching” 詩經 from Chinese antiquity is considered to be one of the Five Classics of Chinese Literature and was supposedly put into its current form by Confucius himself. In the “Book of Songs” the Chinese recorded songs (poetry) from all aspects of their civilization. This included Martial (Military), Court, Folk, Ceremonial, and Love Songs, as well as other types of music. Unfortunately, we only have the words to theses songs the musical notation itself has been lost to the ages. As a historical find this set of documents is extremely significant. We are able to capture a snapshot of Chinese culture from over two thousand years ago.

Lol a song to represent today's society. I think I'm the only one laughing at this.

I didn't really lose you, I just lost it for a while.

Abney Park - "Stigmata Martyr"



The song is basically a giant metaphor for how humans tend to treat celebrities; we throw them in the spotlight but then are so eager to burn them down again. It can also be seen though, I guess, as the bastardization of religion over the ages.


There is nothing in this world more ugly than imperfection
