Once I was a baby
Life did not seem to be so complicated
Tried to stand on two legs
Maybe make a foot step
Come and watch
If you like

Breathing air was something!
Not too much effort climbing into climax
Cry for small disasters
Mummy, flying monsters
Come with me
Come and see

You don’t smile as often now,
I can’t cry, I don’t know how..

My, these days are gone now,
Days when a fart or burp were not illegal
My, oh my, where´s mummy?
Monsters all around me!

Come to me
Set me free

Fears of what was still unknown,
Grew with time, though less is shown


from The Great Prophecy of a Small Man, track released January 1, 2010
Guest participants:
Vera van der Bie: Violin and viola
