Guano Apes


“Open your eyes, open your mind

proud like a god don’t pretend to be blind…”

 

GUANO APES/OPEN YOUR EYES

From Göttingen, Germany, Sandra Nasić, Henning Rümenapp, Stefan Ude and Dennis Poschwatta create an alternative band under the name of Guano Apes. The apes became famous in Europe for awesome presentations who make allegory to extreme sport and living the life in that kind way.

Open your eyes is the big introduction to know this band, a big amalgam of sticky bass line, electrifying guitar and intense drumming. But man, the grasp voice of Sandra take this song to a level of epic proportions with a breakout chorus that really makes you think about the meaning of life.

What this song is about? Well, It empathizes the struggle and battles you have every day with your worst enemy, your brain. It tell you that your limitations are only on your mind and you need to suppress all that shit inside your head just to be yourself and follow your dreams and ideas. Do not blend, do not sell, do not be a cow and beat the machine. Fight and give something to the world, that’s why you came here fool, not to work in bank and fuck.

Will you be able to defeat your mind? Lets ear the song to see what happens.

 

Lyrics

Hide your face forever

dream and search forever

 

Have you ever been for sale ?

when your isms get smart

oh so selfish and mindless

with that comment in your eye

 

Do you think that you are hard ?

really harder than the other

man you’re acting cold

if you are not in charge

 

Don’t split your mentality

without thinking twice

your voice has got no reason

now is the time to face your lies

 

Open your eyes, open your mind

proud like a god don’t pretend to be blind

trapped in yourself, break out instead

beat the machine that works in your head


Will you offer me some tricks

if I ever need them

would you go into that room

if I call ’em

 

Do you think that you are better

really better than the rest

realize there’s a problem

I know that you can give your best

 

Have you ever had a dream?

or is life just a trip?

a trip without chances

a chance to grow up quick

 

Open your eyes, open your mind …

 

Hide your face forever

dream and search forever

night and night you feel nothing

there’s no way outside of my land

 

Open your eyes, open your mind …
