Stuffed Ears (Like a Robot) ©

The first song i've written. People listening to music ignoring the sounds around them.

I sit in the train looking at the landscape
when an hissing sizzling noise touches my ears

Rap 1
it s a hissing itching sizzling sound in my ear
and my bones do shiver 'cause I cannot bear

I look for a place in the next compartment
see five people sitting here with headphones in their ears

people on cables like puppets on power
look into nowhere here and not there
like a robot

in the gym legpress already occupied
by a crumbled towel of a crumbled looking guy

and when he turns his head what do I see
the cabels at his neck are running right into his ears

people on cables like puppets on power
look into nowhere here and not there
like a robot

stuffed ears plugged ears and you don't hear
you're like a robot hear nothing around you
stuffed ears plugged ears and you don' t feel
you're like a robot
stuffed ears, plugged ears you don't perceive

I like music, I like sound
I like to hear my feet walking on the ground
feel the breeze on my skin (it's making me grin)
hear birds in the tree different wheels on the street

wouldn't it be nicer with my favorite song
feel like in a movie a train ride with tone

but what would I look like?
what would you see?

stuffed ears plugged ears I  wouldn't hear
like a robot hear nothing around me
stuffed ears plugged ears I wouldn't feel
like a robot
stuffed ears, plugged ears I wouldn't perceive

people on cables like puppets on power
look into nowhere here and not there
like a robot
stuffed ears plugged ears and you don't hear
you're like a robot hear nothing around you
stuffed ears plugged ears and you don' t feel
you're like a robot
stuffed ears, plugged ears you dont perceive

About Stuffed Ears

This is the first song i've written. People listening to music ignoring the sounds around them. Like robots, no interactions with the environement. A friend of mine told me it soiunded like a dance track. So I followed this idea. Some rap pieces in a dance track, recorded by a Swiss singer and Cuban musicians who normally play in a Salsa band

Das ist der erste Song den ich geschrieben hatte. Eigentlich sah ich zuerst ein Bild oder einen Film in meinem Kopf. Weisse Menschen mit Kopfhörern, die nicht mehr sehen, was um sie herum vorgeht. Dieses Phänomen hat sich seit der Idee verbreitert und ähnliche Videos wurden gedreht. Ich wollte ein dance Stück haben mit kurzen Rap Elementen.   Auch die Handy Tastatur des Studioboses kann Music machen. Dieses Stück gefällt den Kids am besten.
