now look if you’re gonna come around here
and say those sort of things
you gotta take a few on the chin
yeah you’re talking about sin and redemption
well you better wear your thickest skin
sometimes you can’t please everyone
sometimes you can’t please anyone at all
sew your heart onto your sleeve
and wait for the ax to fall
 (from “Skin” by Bill Mallonee) 

Grappling with your actions and what you give in to or allow in your life is a good indicator as to where you are and who you are. If you don’t ever question your words or deeds and their impact on others, then you need to ask if you are have stopped growing as a person, enlarging your heart. This video/story is an provacative example.  

Like many other Iranian rock bands, the group was formed in the wake of president Khatami‘s relaxed stance on cultural policies in Iran in the late 1990s and the early decade of the 21st century. Arguably, Hypernova is at the forefront of the Iranian “rock” movement, recently garnering the most attention and press coverage. This is not just due to the novelty of them being a rock band from Iran, but because they are being recognized as a solid rock band, with accomplished musicians that produce well-written songs.
