Andrei Music that comes from deep in the soul

It is clear to me that the world is in deep deep trouble - we are on the edge of a precipice and as has always been the case in the past when big troubles are on the horizon the vast majority close their eyes to the threat and continue on in blissful ignorance.

Those that see and issue warnings are often mocked and scorned. There is a name for this, such people are Cassandras, after Cassandra who fated to foresee the future but never to be believed. She warned of the fall of Troy. After it fell she was taken as a concubine by Agamemnon and eventually murdered by Agamemnon's wife. Winston Churchill was a prime example of a Cassandra in action during the thirties.

Be that as it may this is called "Oh No the Night" or sometimes "Stenka Razin's dream"(1). It is about bad dreams that foretell the doom of the dreamer (Stenka Razin).
 
(1) Stenka Razin was a Volga pirate. The tune from another song about him, "Stenka Razin" became the Seekers "The Carnival is Over" in days long long ago.
