"i am an orphan" is about the life searching journey we all undertake in order to find the roots that make us who we are as individual people.

It may come to a matter of accepting or rejecting our own biological roots in order to grow with more freedom into the person we truly are.

In this quest for identity, we sometimes find ourself facing unanswered questions and even further from the truth we were seeking.

Pain and uncertainty are unavoidable circumstances and must be sublimate in order to carry on.


(UN)ROOTED - I am an orphan - lyrics
François Minaux

Scene One

I am an orphan - I am the root
I am an orphan - I am the root
I am looking for my roots - I am an orphan
I am hunting for my roots - I am an orphan
I am searching for my roots - I am an orphan

Hidden roots beneath the ground - I feel your pull
Fragmented stories from mouth to ears and ears to mouth
I hear you well, I know you well

Who said I can not grow without you?
I can drink the sun with my leaves

What have I done to us? What have I done to you?
My everything
I will never give up on you! Do you understand?

Come - Come closer …
