The Right To Life by Collapsing Scenery

Darkenin Heart

The upcoming Collapsing Scenery album, A Desert Called Peace, is a group of songs that were composed and recorded over the course of the last three awfully bizarre and unsettling years. The songs address both individual and social crises. It will be out on Metropolitan Indian on March 10th, 2023.

The second single from the album, The Right to Life, arrives together with a vintage-style music video.

Collapsing Scenery's Reggie Debris comments on the song: “The Right to Life was written after a couple years of observing various unhinged responses to the pandemic and its societal impact, in particular an essay by RR Reno which contemptuously accused the liberal left of being consumed by a pathetic, Godless fear of death, manifested in support for lockdowns, social distancing and masks. This argument (screed, really) was all the more head-spinning coming from a conservative Catholic, who otherwise drones on endlessly about fostering a ‘culture of life’.

“To quote another Catholic, the great GK Chesterton, ‘When a man believes that any stick will do, he at once picks up a boomerang’.

“The lyric attempts to address the various, obvious hypocrisies of the ‘culture of life’ crowd, and the ways in which its critique of our supposedly atomized, alienated, secular culture was undercut by its radical, nihilistic individualism when asked to make some concrete sacrifices for the common good.”
