"The conscious lyrics trace a perfect picture of how man lives nowadays in the PRESENT era, with a positive hope projected into the FUTURE. With my production I felt the need to cover also the PAST in order to have the full spectrum, so I went fully analogue and organic using vintage studio equipment mixed with acoustic instrumentation. This song is beautiful, well done Rocky, well done all!"
