Simon Lynge - 'Age of Distraction'


We first heard Simon Lynge's music in Astoria, Oregon in a small little sweet spot owned by Scott Docherty, "The Red Hare," in 2011. We fell in love with Simon's conscious - thought provoking lyrics, melodic harmonies and expansive guitar riffs. We've been following Simon's journey and sharing his music ever since.


We realize what a special evening that was years ago, considering Simon is NOW a widely known international musician.


After a major hand injury this year, Simon Lynge is back with a seriously amazing single, "Age of Distraction."


Simon shared in an interview:

“I just wanted to acknowledge the underlying anxiety of existence in this age and the longing for connection that I believe is so pervasive in modern humans,” explains Lynge. “We have instant access to information, but our knowledge of the source of a meaningful life is at an all-time low. We look out of our eyes and forget to observe with our heart.”


I am deeply moved by this song and want to share it far and wide!!


Lyrics of “Age of Distraction” by Simon Lynge


Cracks are getting deeper

Storms are growing bigger

Feel like we’re living in the eye of a hurricane

We vote for leaders

Killers and deceivers

Maybe we’re flying on a hijacked aeroplane

Wo-oh oh-oh...wo-oh-oh-oh-oh

Wo-oh oh-oh...wo-oh-oh-oh-oh

Millions of people

Running from a tragedy

Pure desperation and nowhere to go

Who do we think we are?

Closing all our borders down

These people are not our enemy

Someday they could be you or me

Wo-oh oh-oh...wo-oh-oh-o

h-oh

(Come on)

While we’re living in the age of distraction

We’re missing out on half the light of the sun

We need to show up and bear witness to our lives

Cause something isn’t working

When kids are suicidal

Let’s fall in love with mother nature again

Wo-oh oh-oh...wo-oh-oh-oh-oh

(In love with mother nature again)

Wo-oh oh-oh...wo-oh-oh-oh-oh

Modified genetics

Oceans full of plastic

It’s hard to be a human in a cynical machine

This is the only home we got

This tiny little blue dot

There’s really nowhere else to go

There’s really nowhere else to go

There’s really nowhere else to go

While we’re living in the age of distraction

We’re missing out on half the light of the sun

We need to show up and bear witness to our lives

Cause something isn’t working no, something isn’t working

Oh while we’re living in the age of distraction

We’re missing out on half the light of the sun

Oh we need to show up and bear witness to our lives

Cause something isn’t working

When kids are suicidal

Let’s fall in love with mother nature again

Wo-oh oh-oh...wo-oh-oh-oh-oh

(In love with mother nature again)

Wo-oh oh-oh...wo-oh-oh-oh-oh [3x]
