imagine yourself with a person who you really love (e.g. your best mate, your grandmother, your lover and muse, your imaginary friend...). You are both floating on the top of the world, looking down and laughing at all the wise guys who think they can judge you and explain to you how things go.
You suddenly realize that they know nothing at all.
Nothing about beauty. Friendship. And love.
(...yes, that's pathetic. But I like it.)


we hear a sound
from underground
this is the sign

we raise our heads
jump out of bed
it’s time to leave

they use to say
we`d waste our days
on stupid dreams

we know they sigh
we know they cry
but what do they know
about us?

We climb the trees
and sail the seas
that’s what we need

we see it’s true
the sky is blue
just like our souls

we’re floating proud
through our favourite clouds
which are shaped like birds

we say hello
to a crow named Joe
what does he know...
about us?

What the hell does he know... about us?

I am the ground
You are the fire
We are the air
And the only thing
we have to fear
is fear itself

we’re looking down
and have to laugh
about their cars
all stuck in these roads
where will they go?
What the hell do they know...
about us?

What the hell do they know about us?

they’ll never know about us.
