Edidion, a motivated artist and musician, has released his new track called ‘Statistics’, which is a raw rendition of his innermost desire, that being, a better world for all.
Acting as a spokesperson for the disappointed, disgruntled and downtrodden, Edidion’s new single voices the ever-growing concern within the majority of people in the world today, otherwise referred to as “WE”, that things are getting harder and harder and therefore more and more people are ‘feeling trapped’ and ‘imprisoned in their own circumstances’. With so much turmoil and strife existing around the world at the moment, it is no wonder that people are feeling ‘mad at the world’ trying to ‘find someone to take the blame’.
Edidion captures this sentiment at the beginning of the song, but then goes on to sing words of encouragement and inspiration singing ‘I want you to know, that nothing is forever’. He attempts to remind his fans about the idea of how destiny is up for grabs and how ‘you gotta keep your head up’ and your eyes open in order to ‘see the potential in your destiny’. The message is not a new one, but it is one that deserves to be heard again and again. It concerns the idea of remaining positive and upbeat in a world of negativity and constant struggle.
After this stage of the song he addresses the more privileged members of society and the world, the people who could be referred to as the one percent, making an emotional appeal to them, singing in a gentle and highly expressive croon ‘you see our tears, you hear our cries’ ‘we knock on your doors, but you ignore’. As a listener you can feel his earnest sentiment of wanting to inspire and motivate the world in a positive way, both the oppressors and the oppressed. He again beseeches those with the wealth and power asking ‘how will we thrive, if you keep us deprived of the knowledge we need’ - ‘need to survive’.
A large majority of people, just like Edidion, will feel that this is a valid question worthy of an answer. It just so happens to be well timed with student protests around the world at the moment, such protests are chanting the same slogan in attempt to stem the tide of ever increasing costs involved with getting a higher education and a chance for a better life.
The song comes to an end with him imploring his listeners to break the cycle and to fight against statistics. Similar to some of Michael Jackson’s songs, who happens to be one of the musicians whom he identifies with, his basic message is one of hope for a better world, for you and for me and the entire human race. It’s a good thing too, because a world without hope, would be a hopeless situation.
