Mother Nature Goes to Heaven
by a-ha

Album: Foot of the Mountain (2009)


  • In this song guitarist and principal songwriter Paul Waaktaar-Savoy expresses his grief about the world's situation. Die Presse June 14, 2009 asked vocalist Morten Harket how he saw it. The singer replied: "It is, of course, naïve to come along saying: We save the world now. Every individual has to be aware of his acting in unbalancing the nature. We have to think about what makes life worth living and develop alertness for those processes, which are sawing at the basement. If human will call itself human furthermore, he has to take responsibility for his own acting. Otherwise, we were only machines looking for permanent stimulation."
