Berlin is the controversial symbol of a divided continent. A city separated in two by a wall, where the west side is a capitalist enclave within an inflexible communist country. The perfect metaphor for any harsh logic that’s able to make everyone feel like a prisoner.



Last night in my dream
We crossed the border in a car boot
Didn’t blink, couldn’t breathe
Hearts were pounding
Teeth were grinding
Next time I don’t want to be seen

Wake up, gotta go now
To the place we can’t be afraid of
Join me, let us be there
No flags no fear I can assure you
Come on, we have to be there

This time I want to be free
This time we need to be seen
This time I can be me
This time we’re gonna be free
