♬ THE WAR ON DRUGS – Change

This song from ‘the war on drugs’ was released yesterday, October 26th 2021, and tomorrow October 28th their new album will be released: ‘I Don’t Live Here Anymore

LYRIC

I was lying in my bed
A creature void of form
Been so afraid of everything
I need a chance to be reborn
I never wanted anything
That someone had to give
I don’t live here anymore
I went along in wheelWhen I think about the old days, babe
You’re always on my mind
I know it ain’t like I remember
I guess my memories run wild
Like when we went to see Bob Dylan
We danced to Desolation Row
But I don’t live here anymore
But I got no place to goBeating like a heart
I’m gonna walk through every doorway, I can’t stop
I need some time, I need control, I need your love
I wanna find out everything I need to know
I’m gonna say everything that there is to say
Although you’ve taken everything I need away
I’m gonna make it to the place I need to go
We’re all just walkin’ through this darkness on our ownTime surrounds me like an ocean
My memories like waves
Is life just dying in slow motion
Or getting stronger everyday
I never took our love for granted
You never left me wanting more
But you never recognise me babe
I don’t live here anymoreBeating like a heart
I’m gonna walk through every doorway, I can’t stop
I need some time, I need control, I need your love
I wanna find out everything I need to know
I’m gonna say everything that I need to say
Although you’ve taken everything I need away
I’m gonna take you to the place I need to go
We’re all just walkin’ through this darkness on our own
Beating like a heart
I’m gonna walk through every doorway, I can’t stop
I need some time, I need control, I need your love
I wanna find out everything I need to know
I’m gonna say everything that I need to say
Although you’ve taken everything I need away
I’m gonna take you to the place I need to go
We’re all just walkin’ through this darkness on our ownWe’re all just walkin’ through this darkness on our own
We’re all just walkin’ through this darkness on our own
We’re all just walkin’ through this darkness on our own
We’re all just walkin’ through this darkness on our own

♬ SAM FENDER – Long Way Off

The new single from Sam Fender’s new album of 2021 is out.

LYRIC

I’ve seen enough of it
The sides are all cemented
Their incentives look the same
Are they vetted
In the same ways?
As the little guy puts blood and tears
Into pushing deadweight on the capital steps
Bleeding out for a caricature of a ’50s salesman
Hare checklist, tickin’ every box
Dead for what?Standing on the side, I never was the silent type
All the endless grey conundrums that are painted black and white
I heard a hundred million voices sound the same both left and right
We’re still a long way off
We’re still a long way offSome get along with it
They drag around from town to town
With a pretty lie that hoodwinked many of my loved ones
I owe it to my folks for giving me an understanding of a world
Shot my people down
The hungry and divided play into the hands of the man who put them there
So it goesStanding on the side, I never was the silent type
All the endless grey conundrums that are painted black and white
Heard a hundred million voices sound the same both left and right
We’re still a long way offWe’re still a long way off, oh, oh, oh-oh
We’re still a long way off, oh-oh, oh, oh, ohStanding on the side, I never was the silent type
All the endless grey conundrums that are painted black and white
Heard a hundred million voices sound the same both left and right
We’re still a long way offWe’re still a long way off, oh, oh, oh-oh
We’re still a long way off, oh-oh, oh, oh, oh

Telegram boom: 70 million new users during WhatsApp outage

The sensational blocking of social networks of the giant Facebook Inc. which includes: Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp has benefited some platforms, in particular Telegram. The Telegram instant messaging platform is WhatsApp’s “alternative” par excellence, both in terms of users and in terms of functionality.

With the inability to use WhatsApp, Messenger and Direct for over 6 hours, users have turned to other platforms such as Telegram which in a single day registered 70 million new users.

“I am proud of how our team has managed unprecedented growth because Telegram has continued to work flawlessly for the vast majority of our users. This is a record increase in user registration and activity” for the service. ” said Pavel Durov, founder of Telegram.

On the other hand, it was not easy to manage the situation, given that the high and unexpected number of active users on the platform created some slowdowns, particularly in the United States. After the return to normal of the Facebook group’s apps, most likely the great majority have returned to using mainly WhatsApp but could have kept Telegram in case of future blackouts.
