Greek Hip Hop act Active Member is part of a of an alternative Hip Hop syndicate called Low Bap. Their lyrics are largely critiques of modern greek society. They generally play all-age and non-profit gigs.

The title of the track: Κοσμογωνιά (Kosmogonia) translates as "corner of the world" and is from the 1998 album "Μύθοι του Βάλτου" (Myths from the Swamp).

The chorus translates as follows:

"Here in this corner of the world
I built myself a murderous dream
I threw away my uniform
and am not welcome to my share."
"My religion is not deceiving myself."
Jetsun Milarepa 1052-1135 CE

"Let me take you
On the sad go round
In the twilight zone
Hear the mournful sounds
Of the carousel
An the calliope
Where you lose your will
And abandon hope
As you spin
An the sad go round
And the world is a blur
Of confusing sound
You forget your troubles
You forget your fun
Now you're just a world
Moving round the sun"

This kind of brings back the days of my youth, year 1977 in London when I saw the Damned, it was quite new, I didn't become a punk, but I liked their stuff. Same week in London I also saw japanese musical theatre called Kabuki, in the Covent Garden. Punk didn't cause me to give up classical, avant garde and ethnic music.

Make effort to destroy the circle of suffering,
Enter the path to liberation,
Abandon all illusions,
And learn to cherish others.
