English translation of the extract of "Ich Bin" from the disc "If..."


Spoken by the character "I", with a chorus:"

"Now I recognize you again: you are my double.

You have helped me, thank you.

Your smile has kept the inquisitive ones off me: you were present instead of me, an anonymous in a crowd of anonymous people.

Echo of the world around us.

You taught me the technique of self-denial.

You stood in for me, a passe-partout, a free pass.

Because you have stood in for me, I could escape unrecognized.

Self-protection mask - thanks to which I survive."
