Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly.

I listened to this British group led by Sam Duckworth once or twice last year when i heard that Nitin Sawhney would be producing their 2nd album.... And now that 'Searching For The Hows And Whys' is out, i decided to listen to the 1st album 'The Chronicles of a Bohemian Teenager' again. And that's when i realized how much punch there is in this group. Each and every song keeps you on the alert with its musical richness and catchy beats.

Yesterday, while in the streets of Bordeaux, i got swept by the song 'Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly.' and today when I found the lyrics, i knew i had to share it.

You say it's fair, a labour source for the masses,
providing cheap garments we can sell and brand,
as a new and hopeful answer to an existence so bland.
Open your eyes, as you don't need to buy.
You do not have to be a coat hanger for a corporation in a market that's lost the plot.
You decide if it's worth having their blood on your hands just to wear the latest Nikes.
Open your eyes, as you don't need to buy.
If I had a cape, that made me disappear,
I'd fly around the world for days just so I could hear,
the rich count their dimes whilst the Africans cry,
and record it on a tape and stream it high across the sky.
Open your eyes, as you don't need to buy it
