Track Name: As If Awake (feat. Mabe Fratti)
Life, wake up and walk
I see how everything, the
singularity; vanishes

Walk, stop and look up,
I see all in all, reflects itself, and
then again explodes

Peek I close my eyes,
Feel how all inside is done,
look again it has just begun,

I am gone and done

Life wake up and walk
Truth may be we are not here
To dream or to rise or to shine
As if awake
As if awake
As if awake

The lightness of the present
Where we always can fall
on either side
on either side

As if awake
As if awake
