"Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly" as written by and Samuel Lloyd Duckworth....
You say it's fair, a labor 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

    General CommentMy favourite from the album. Clearly about the capitalist society we live in and it's expoiltative nature.

    To me, a very mature song.

    General CommentThis song is so real. Not fake like all the other writers try to shove down our thraots. This song totally tells us how all the material things don't even ,matter. Oh, and frazzleface, fancypants is a very good word!!!
