Entprima Jazz Cosmonauts Symbol

Blogpost

November 20, 2020

The next sociopolitical song of the cosmonauts. The song deals with the doubtful production conditions of the fashion industry. As already known from the Cosmonauts, in a contrasting relaxed musical form.

This song is dedicated to the brave Chinese people – citizens of planet earth. Let us overcome the barriers of nations and languages to fight for the interests of peaceful people.

Entprima Jazz Cosmonauts Symbol

Lyrics

You look infinitely cool in your new blue jeans

A bargain, considering how far those pants have traveled

Yes indeed, a journey around the world including the destruction of our nature and exploitation of people

We could change it if we shopped more responsibly, couldn’t we?

I wonder, I wonder how strong I could be
It bursts in my brain like a thunder

I wonder, I wonder how rude you can be
You will believe I can’t see

Don’t take me for a fool
I recognize your greed

Now I call out loud
We are the crowd

Fight for Empathy

After the story of “Spaceship Entprima” and the stage play “From Ape to Human”, the Entprima Jazz Cosmonauts were free for a new task. The decision was made for a permanent, socio-political task – the fight for more empathy in this world.

Empathy logically excludes racism, fascism, injustice, greed and all other evils of human behaviour. And when we speak of fight, we include determined resistance. We will not leave our children a world worth living in if we allow ourselves to fall permanently into romantic transfiguration or meditative retreat.

Nevertheless, every person needs a balance for his soul. If we respond to hate with hate, we will fail miserably. But we are many! If everyone does his part in daily life to improve the situation, we will win.

Make sure that you always remain powerful in your mission and avoid confrontations that harm your soul.

Notes and Full Lyrics

The sociopolitical engagement of the Jazz Cosmonauts is coming to the point. The very first song with critical impact „The Ways We Go“ reached iTunes Charts for a day in South Africa where the song was adressed to. A short interlude but a signal to go further.

You look infinitely cool in your new blue jeans

A bargain, considering how far those pants have traveled

Yes indeed, a journey around the world including the destruction of our nature and exploitation of people

We could change it if we shopped more responsibly, couldn’t we?

I wonder, I wonder how strong I could be
It bursts in my brain like a thunder

I wonder, I wonder how rude you can be
You will believe I can’t see

Don’t take me for a fool
I recognize your greed

Now I call out loud
We are the crowd

We are going to get what’s coming to us
We are not thinking about sustainability
We don’t want to see the suffering of other people
Because we are fashion junkies

You work in a Chinese bleach factory and ruin your health for my jeans?
I am also at the bottom of the food chain
We have no money to buy clothes of value
But we could join forces and make a difference

I wonder, I wonder how strong I could be
It bursts in my brain like a thunder

I wonder, I wonder how rude you can be
You will believe I can’t see

Don’t take me for a fool
I recognize your greed

Now I call out loud
Ee are the crowd

It would take a lot of time to change something
And I don’t even know you
And you’re gonna lose your lousy job too
But if we do nothing, nothing will change

Maybe I could develop a self-esteem
Free me from my addiction to the latest fashions
Maybe you could become my friend
Maybe we could share some dreams

I wonder, I wonder how strong I could be
It bursts in my brain like a thunder

I wonder, I wonder how rude you can be
You will believe I can’t see

Don’t take me for a fool
I recognize your greed

Now I call out loud
We are the crowd

It’s a little hard to understand what you are singing – Alexis –
but for a machine not that bad

Special Corona Release – From Ape to Human

We already reseased all tunes from the stage play as singles, put it also together in playlists as soundtrack, and always hoped that it could happen live soon. But unfortunately the pandemic is very long lasting and a live event is not in sight.

Avoid Cable Cars to Mountain Peaks

Avoid Cable Cars to Mountain Peaks is not a song in the conventional sense. It is rather poetry with music.
