lyrics

We drive ourselves to the beach on Saturday
To feel the heat of the sun
We forget all the castles we have built
They wash away in the tide

We eat and drink out of bottles, bags and cans
Like they did in the past
We hand write letters on paper with a pen
And throw them into the sea

We are fugitives
From the labyrinth
We are on the run
From the momentum

We take in unfiltered air straight from the source
There’s nothing like the real thing
We use our arms and our legs and we speak out loud
We try to dance, try to sing

We touch each other directly with our hands
We look out with naked eyes
We see our bodies under the natural light
And we embrace all our flaws

We are refugees
From reality
We have been reborn
In another form
