I can’t count time, I can't count time anymore,
I am the only one, who sleeps and wakes by himself
I’ve decided that I’ll count the same
My periods of wakefulness, of wakefulness
even if they concern only me, it’s the only time I have
With the light of the lamp
I've seen the tracks ,they made me curious
They seem like imprints of someone who knows where he's going
So I’m following them
I hope he really knows, he really knows the way
I really hope we share the same needs
And I wonder if his life seeks the same as mine

Now he has stopped
I've the feeling he knows I’m here
He’s waiting for me.
He has a shell, like a shield on His back
He has already lived three days and two nights,
He's waiting for me huddled by the fire,
He's waiting for me huddled by the fire

I drank his hot broth though it had no taste at all
he spoke kinda odd words
but quite surprisingly i could understand
talking to my mind
talking to my heart
he was inside my head

A different point of view
not only cold and black
it's a surprise that takes my breath away
My fellow , the Wise , emits a small sound
Tuning in to find the right vibe

And just like that
from the expansive dark depths
other voices come to life
The song of the flowers is shadowed by another sound
It’s the buzz of the night insects responding to the call
responding to the call
Now though it’s dark and cold, even I feel the need to sing.
Now though it’s dark and cold, even I feel the need to sing.
