Hello everyone, it's vibes web3 music compeition week 2. Week one was amazing and I had fun listening to Hiveans as they sang to their heart content. I want to also say a very big thank you to @lordbutterfly for putting up a competition of such magnitude together.

For my entry for week 2, I did a cover of Fire On The Mountain by Asa.

I chose this song because it describes the current situation of the world. Just like the song says, there is fire on the mountain and nobody seems to be on the run. This simply mirrors the current state of the world today.

The crime rate in our society keeps increasing, crime has literally become the norm,as a lot of people do not have a living conscience anymore.

Today, people steal, kill, cheat and lie over and again and a lot of people see nothing wrong with it. Corruption, Fraud, Bribery have all become part of the system. People see these things and all they do is turn a blind eye. People either keep mute because they are scared to say something or they benefit from these criminal acts.

This song also talks about how people fight without even knowing what they are fighting for. They just do what ever their godfathers tell them to do without thinking of the consequences of their actions. They just enjoy the state of war and chaos. They use weapons to cause destruction, take lives, vandalise and even disrupt processes without feeling any form of remorse or guilt.

At the end of the day, when all these problem get out of hand, we start crying out for help which doesn't ever come. We wait for situations to escalate before we try to curb it, which is impossible. We then get stuck in this problem wishing we had controlled it when it all started, but then it's too late. We sit and regret our actions hoping for a miracle.

Regardless of everything happening we will continue to strive to make the world a better place. Praying and hoping it all gets better. Our faith burns bright like little candles which doesn't shine so well but as a group, they fill a room with so much light and radiance.

This song doesn't just highlight the attrocities happening in the world but also preaches love and making the world a better place.

This song means a lot to me and I hope you all enjoy.

There is fire on the mountain
And nobody seems to be on the run
Oh, there is fire on the mountaintop
And no one is a-runnin'
I wake up in the mornin'
Tell you what I see on my TV screen
I see the blood of an innocent child
And everybody's watchin'
Now I'm looking out my window
And what do I see?
I see an army of a soldier man
Marching across the street, yeah
Hey, Mr. Soldier man
Tomorrow is the day you go to war
But you are fighting for another man's cause
And you don't even know him
Oooh!
What did he say to make you so blind
To your conscience and reason?
Could it be love for your country?
Or for the gun you use in killing?
So... there is fire on the mountain
And nobody seems to be on the run
Oh, there is fire on the mountaintop
And no one is a-runnin'.
