Kim about 'World in perfect harmony'

It's just about this dream I have... (1)

It's a very idealistic song, perhaps naively so in many ways. In fact probably naively so. I can't help but have a positive feeling about the future. When you're surrounded by children - I've got an 11 year old sister and a 9 year old brother - you have to be positive about the future. You have to have an attitude that says, 'right, I'm gonna make this work, this is gonna work'. You have to. It's hard though - look around, there's not much to encourage you to be positive about the world, our future. That song is very, very positive, you know. There's a song on the album called Who's to blame, which is slightly more realistic and a much more melancholy, sad appraisal of the world situation. That's why I'm glad the two songs are on the same album. I think it would have been wrong to have one attitude on it. It would have been a bit naive, really. (2)
