Neuer Song „The Village“ von Wrabel – Die anderen sind das Problem!

Mit seinem neuen Song "The Village" zeigt Wrabel deutlich, Transgender und Transsexuelle sind nicht das Problem, sondern die, die es nicht verstehen!

„The Village“ – Ein emotionaler Mutmach-Song zur Unterstützung der Trans-Community!

„In der Natur würde eine Herde jeden Vogel angreifen, der bunter als die anderen ist, denn Andersartigkeit wird als Bedrohung wahrgenommen.“ – So beginnt der Einspieler zum Song…

Auf Instagram (unten) schreibt Sänger Stephan Wrabel aus L.A., der sein eigenes Coming-out mit 23 Jahren hatte, dass er den Song „The Village“ bereits am 23. Februar 2017 schrieb, der Tag, an dem US-Präsident Donald Trump die von seinem Vorgänger Obama verfügte Regelung zum Schutz von Transgendern und Transsexuellen aufhob. (Hier mehr dazu…) Nachdem Trump nun twitterte, dass er künftig keine Transmenschen mehr in seinem Militär haben wolle, veröffentlichte Wrabel seinen Song. Seiner Ansicht nach muss das alles dringend stoppen, denn so gibt Trump den Menschen die Erlaubnis zu hassen und auf Leute, die anders sind, herabzublicken; sie als weniger Wert anzusehen.

„Ich wollte nur einen einfachen Song schreiben um alle, die sich wie Außenseiter fühlen, wissen zu lassen, dass nicht du das Problem bist, sie sind es.“, lesen wir u.a. under besagtem Instagram-Foto, das ihr hier seht:

i wrote this song on february 23rd. the day after trump took away federal protections for trans students in public schools. today i release the video, just days after he tweeted to ban trans people from serving in the military. i just wanted to write a simple song letting anyone that feels like an outsider know that the problem isn’t you, it’s them. it’s the village. not in an aggressive us vs. them way, but just because you are the minority… just because people whisper freak when u walk down the hall… all of these things… it’s so hard out there… i know it is. these things aren’t pointing towards something wrong with YOU they’re pointing to a humongous problem with the majority… the them. two of my biggest supporters are trans teenagers. i’ve had the chance to meet their families. to get to know them. to hear about their struggles and dreams. hi. if you guys are reading this, i need to say thank you. thank you for being YOU. thank you for being honest and courageous and bold and vulnerable and transparent and true. you inspire me to be myself. you inspire me to be fearless in my self expression. my heart breaks for you. what this man is saying and doing. it has to stop. he is giving the village permission to hate. to look at those who are different as wrong and lesser than. i don’t know how else to raise my voice than in a song. and so, i wrote a song for you. i came out as gay at around 23. i grew up in the church. i came out into a church in los angeles that called it „same sex attraction“. it was wrong. i was wrong. it was evil. i was evil. „unnatural“ they called it. „unnatural“ they called me. i can’t pretend like i know what it’s like to be trans. to feel those feelings and know those struggles. all i can do is try to speak up and try to relate. there’s nothing wrong with you, there’s something wrong with the village. video link in bio . with all of my love .

Songtext „The Village“ – Wrabel

No, your mom don’t get it
And your dad don’t get it
Uncle John don’t get it
And you can’t tell grandma
‚cause her heart can’t take it
And she might not make it

They say:
„Don’t dare, don’t you even go there,
cutting off your long hair.
you do as you’re told.“
Tell you:
„Wake up, go put on your makeup,
this is just a phase you’re gonna outgrow.“

There’s something wrong in the village
In the village, oh
They stare in the village
In the village, oh
There’s nothing wrong with you
It’s true, it’s true
There’s something wrong with the village
With the village
There’s something wrong with the village

Feel the rumors follow you from monday all the way to friday dinner
You got one day of shelter, then it’s sunday hell to pay, you young lost sinner
Well I’ve been there, sitting in that same chair
Whispering that same prayer half a million times

It’s a lie though
Buried in disciples
One page of the bible isn’t worth a life

There’s something wrong in the village
In the village, oh
They stare in the village
In the village, oh
There’s nothing wrong with you
It’s true, it’s true
There’s something wrong with the village
With the village
There’s something wrong with the village

There’s something wrong in the village
In the village, oh
They stare in the village
In the village, oh
There’s nothing wrong with you
It’s true, it’s true
There’s something wrong with the village
With the village
There’s something wrong with the village
