The songs in this section all have a serious message whether they are myth or not.
“Pandora” is based on a Greek myth (mythos — or word for ‘word of mouth’). A myth is a traditional story set in times long, long ago, with heroes and events to explain how the world works and how we treat each other.
Pandora’s curiosity lead to a release from the entrusted box of sickness, pain, envy and hate.Once released they could not be put back.The last glimmer of light which flew out was HOPE!
We still use the phrase “to open Pandora’s box”, meaning to perform an action which may seem small but turns out to have severe and negative consequences.
“Don’t Worry” is about catastrophe, disaster of war, attack, or natural climate/ weather turbulence. I wrote the lyrics after the jet crash over Locherbie caused by a terrorist. 259 people died aboard and 11 on the ground.
The point is, we watch these disasters on the ‘News’, but then, despite the momentary empathy, just carry on with our lives, without paying much more thought. We don’t then ‘worry’, but their lives are wrecked.
