about

ZAPIENS’ first EP came out in late 2019. The lyrics are focusing on recent protests around the globe and highlighting the consequences of climate change, social injustice and inaction of politics.

I dedicate these songs to all those who stand up for a fair and livable world, and to all who continue to do so, regardless of any pushbacks or relapses. Every little achievement will have an impact. – MJZ

Track Name: Message Rise High
Add fuel to the flames
Let the message rise high
Stand and block their ways
Time to expose their lies
Can’t bear the madness
The world is heating up
So do the people
Let’s put it on the map
You’ve seen the madness
When will you had enough
Stand by your promise
The waiting time is up

Keep your promise
Keep your promise
Keep your promise
Keep your promise

To show colours
I won’t cover my face
To take action
I won’t go out the way
To show strength
I refuse to hit back
To leave no doubt
I will shout it out
I will shout it out loud

Can’t bear the madness

To show colours
I won’t cover my face
To take action
I won’t go out the way
To show strength
I refuse to hit back
To leave no doubt
I will shout it out
I will shout it out loud

Add fuel to the flames
Let the message rise high
Stand and block their ways
Time to expose their lies

Track Name: Devil May Care
We’re at fault, that’s a fact that we all can see
Denial is unsustainable hypocrisy
And it’s all for the wealth of our economy
While the rest of the world drowns in poverty
And we hold up the flag of democracy
Tied up to the hammer of slavery
But we still can decide who we want to be
If we’re part of this blinkered society
That silently hunts and silently kills
In the name of a god called the dollar bill
And that doesn’t even know what’s beyond the hill
Made of gossip and self-doubt packed in plastic film
There is no time to waste and you can not confide
In the white fat old men who will mainly decide
For the good of the company that pays him right
It is us who must now make a change in our lives

I won’t wait until the world awakes
Because on that day it will be too late
And the devil may care for us
Devil may care for us but
I don’t believe in hell
I can feel there’s a need to appeal
To the people that matter, not to the upper class heroes
And the devil may care for them
Devil may care for them but
I don’t believe in hell

We’re at fault, that’s a fact that we all can see
Denial is unsustainable hypocrisy
And it’s all for the wealth of our economy
While the rest of the world drowns in poverty
And we try to place responsibility
On unmanned and self-taught machinery
So we don’t have to show solidarity
With the people who suffer to enable our weal

I won’t wait ‘til the world awakes
On that day it will be too late

I won’t wait until the world awakes
Because on that day it will be too late
And the devil may care for us
Devil may care for us but
I don’t believe in hell

I won’t wait until the world awakes
Because on that day it will be too late
And the devil may care for us
Devil may care for us but
I don’t believe in hell
I can feel there’s a need to appeal
To the people that matter, not to the upper class heroes
And the devil may care for them
Devil may care for them but
I don’t believe in hell

Track Name: Our Last Chance
Goodbye
Let us
Place a sign
In memory of
A witness of our crimes
Let us
Put it up
Where your heart was
For such a long time

Our last breath
Our last chance

No one
Will remember
You
‘Cause so many more will follow you
And disappear
But even
Sooner
Long be-
fore they’re
All gone
We will be
Taking
Our last
Breath and
They will
Watch as we fade

Our last breath
Our last chance
