Wait, so in the movie we hear the military dudes talking about project arrowhead, they say things like scientists trying to open portals to other dimensions.
Wait a second...

Is that....

Such a tragic, devastating, shattering song. Most people recognize it from the film "The Mist" but it's most powerful rendition was the 1992 documentary "Baraka", in the scene about poverty and homelessness.


It's most powerful rendition is from an original recording played over GRADO headphones.


One of the most emotionnal, tragic, moving song ever sung. I remember it perfectly from Baraka. I was hypnotized, feeling bad seeing india yet feeling in tone with one big soul. A truly eerie experience. Thanks Lisa.

I'll never forget the girls at the landfill smiling collecting scraps for their family smiling,my niece's had takeaway turned it away it wasn't good enough nearly as sad as this song.


Watching human beings desperately dive into a dump truck's leavings while surrounded by feral dogs and pigs was one of the most hideous things I've ever seen. Reminds me of the quote:

"I am, somehow, less interested in the weight and convolutions of Einstein’s brain than in the near certainty that people of equal talent have lived and died in cotton fields and sweatshops."


@Max Canon...I saw that documentary Baraka and it was visually stunning! The most moving part of the scene you mentioned is the young boy sitting down begging at the passers by. 😞 Absolutely heart breaking.

The soul of humanity is in this song.

We shall consume it.


Usually the comments under these kinds of videos are full-on cringe with Batbaby poets, but this is spot on. It captures both the beauty and the horror that humanity is capable of. Damn good analysis.


If we left the aliens just one thing to sum us up as a species this would be ideal - beauty horror mystery
