Space Babies – “Free Expression” (Full Episode 3)

“You’re So Amazing!”

 

For this episode of “The Space Babies Show: A Song in a Day”, John X was asked to decide on the theme for the day’s song. He had just watched a speech by the prolific Malala Yousafzai where she had touched upon the concepts of free speech and thought and how vital they are to the growth and evolution of any societal & tribal structure.
No other species on the planet has a greater ability to express thoughts, emotions, concepts & just general knowledge than our own. And yet all too often, that gift is suppressed & discouraged by even some of the planet’s most sophisticated thinkers. This ability is truly a blessing that needs to be exercised.
Today we celebrate Free Expression by doing exactly that. As a song theme, each writer had complete freedom to ‘do what you wanna do, be who you wanna be’ and what emerged was a lighthearted homage to what would seem to be a “no brainer” of a concept (although this world can make it so complicated).
Our guest Michael “Aladdin” Kuehnert (Save the Farm, Shanti G) closed out the writing session with a spontaneous, surrealist journey into ourselves. His colorful lyrics are possibly surpassed only by his amazing performance in the music video. His wife Jasmin Saidi-Kuehnert also joins us for a brief piano interlude during the song itself.

Free Expression lyrics

Be who you want to be,

You’re so amazing!
You’re so amazing,
You’re so amazing
You’re so amazing

Think what you wanna think
Be what you wanna be
Feel what you wanna feel
Do what you wanna do

Free Expression
Free Expression

Tell us how to live on your planet, please

You might need a body for this
You are that amazing,
Showing up as human again,
Braving all this 3rd dimensional
Third dimensional (third dimensional)
Third dimensional (third dimensional)
Third dimensional (third dimensional)
Bullshit , Baby

More beauty, more freaky
More beauty, more freaky

Be the strange, be the change

Be the strange, be the change

You know I can’t complain,
Got nobody to blame,
Get off the bleachers , baby,
Let’s play this game
No judge!
No jury!
No worries!
No hurries!
Everybody, are you ready!!!!
Let me hear you say:

Free Expression!
Free Expression!

“since the beginning of time, the monkeys have been prattling away on their typewriters , but have not yet achieved Shakespeare”

10,000 years of typing, Still No Shakespeare
10,000 years of typing, Still No Shakespeare
Oh, look… Shakespeare!

Freaky People at this Festival of Light,
We’re getting’ free, can’t you see
Who we really wanna be

Free Expression!
Free Expression!

Choose who you want to be
The persistence of memory x2

Aladdin/ Computer Virus:

Tell us how to live on your body please,
Your children are blessed
Time to get high on your oxygen
(time to get high on your oxygen)
Waterlily lifestyle
(waterlily lifestyle)

We are all one

We are all divine beings
We are all one.
