Music

We grabbed the world by the swirling mane,
pushed away from the earth where we wrote our names.
Flew like a moth to the brightest flame,
we were drawn to the view over day-lit plains.

And I can’t help to be reminded of the time
when we didn’t feel like weed among the rye.
Now where naked as the raging storm arise.

Remember where the frozen fields align,
carved our names made a promise somehow.
Where the mist will dance the mire,
there is a place where my gravity lies.

The creeks that we left lit a line in red,
drew a map on the back of my dearest friend.
Grew like the lands, we were loving but we kept feeling homesick with intent, to go further away from home.

And I can’t help to be reminded of the time
when we didn’t feel like truth among the lies.
Now where naked as the raging storm arise.

Remember where the frozen fields align,
carved our names made a promise somehow.
Where the mist will dance the mire,
there is a place where my gravity lies.

Remember where the frozen fields align,
carved our names made a promise somehow.
Where the mist will dance the mire.
There is a place, and my gravity lies

where the frozen fields align.
Carved our names made a promise somehow.
Where the mist will dance the mire,
there is a place where my gravity lies.

Shared bloom through the garden trees,
two summers passed us by.
All soaked by our giving greeds,
through eden roaming wild.

aoooooh
aoooooh

We tried to turn our hardened heels,
kept pace with weathered smiles.
Still young to be naive,
too eager to deny.

aoooooh
aoooooh
aoooooh
aoooooh

Resten bleknar bort.

It’s better we cut those garden trees,
together tare them down.
Where the hell did we go wrong?
Only thistle blooming now.

aoooooh
aoooooh
aoooooh
aoooooh

Resten bleknar bort.

We thought we’d grow together dear,
but instead we grew apart.
And we both know it’s better dear,
though we doubt from time to time.

aoooooh
aoooooh
aoooooh
aoooooh

aoooooh
aoooooh
aoooooh
aoooooh

We stepped out, just pass the tree line,
to gaze down from the hills again.

“The bay lies calm, valley’s not moving.
We need to run somewhere”

We left those lakes to chase the great seas.
Doubtless bodies on the run again.

And in a year, we’d built our own world
above the marble stairs

But the beaten turned to bold
and the heights began to grow.
Oh the beaten turn to bold,
through the clouds of Senegal.

Then winter turned our voices louder,
a march would tare us down.

Then spring time brokem, a path turned sideways,
we lost a piece somehow.

But the beaten turned to bold
and the heights began to grow.
Oh the beaten turn to bold,
Through the clouds of Senegal.

But the beaten turned to bold
and the heights began to grow.
Felt the weight of oceans fall
from the clouds of Senegal.

Heard of Eve and I heard of her crimes,
heard your fist strike the wall in the night.

Never cared to close your eyes.
The treasured sleep that you choice to deny.

Lucid dreaming, even bowed for the birds,
you drew your patterns for the gods to observe.

Blurred your vision as you lost your trail,
you fumble blindly, pushed the world away.
World away.

Oh high design, made you reckless made you blind.
Oh see the signs, they are twisted, only lies.

Tried to save you from the greed and the pride.
Your fickle hands made us hide all the knifes.

Fled your mother, she was free from the light.
Oh, fumble blindly, pushed her love away.
Love away.

Oh high design, made you reckless made you blind
Oh see the signs, they are twisted only lies. x 2

Riddle by the tracks, don’t believe in lines.
Count your steps away from those distorted lands.

And I’m glad you’re back, tucked the roars inside.
And I missed you since the day that you were lost.

Oh high design, made you reckless made you blind
Oh see the signs, they are twisted only lies. X3

Jerusalem, the desserts starts to walk again.
You endure the bleaching sun, but the sand starts creeping in.
And with their words and with their faith they shape another you.
But they can’t take what is yours, friend.

So hold my voice and hold my tongue
for I will never know
why this goes on, this raging war.
And they will never know
If they’re coming home.

Jerusalem, your riches covered in dust again. Your narrow streets still could cradle all, dear Jerusalem.
So with their words and with their faith your beauty tore in two.
But they can’t take what is yours, friend.

So hold my voice and hold my tongue
for I will never know
why this goes on, this raging war.
And they will never know
If they’re coming home.

Your steady hand set me loose,
the spokes rang like you said they would.
You’ve seen me grow, and oh, how i grew,
I rode my way, away from you.

A hushful lake I tried to swim.
They pulled me up when I was halfway in.
They made a bet as i dove down.
At summers end I would finally win.

All of this to make you proud.
You caught the glimpse I tried to hide.

I ran away and you approved, I did som things you never knew.
So far away, so far away
to find a place or at least myself.

All of this to make you proud.
You caught the glimpse I tried to hide
Through the tall grass, up the heights.
All of this to make you proud.

We stole some things we’d soon regret.
Adrenaline ran through our chests.
We’d stray away like all kids do,
sometimes I lied, most times you knew.

All of this to make you proud.
You caught the glimpse I tried to hide
Through the tall grass, up the heights.
All of this to make you proud.

Marched by the lake to climb the cliffside stairs,
to greet the green and yawning earth.
Onto the drowned heights. We shared our view over water, a view over seas.
A view over water.

We fled our homes, forgetting future plans.
We stirred up dust while we ran.
Swept in the nightlight we shared, our view water, a view over seas, our view over water, view over seas.

If only we were so young now,
guarded by the cliffs somehow.
Our place beneath the looming pines.

If only we were so young now, sheltered under birches crowns.
If only we were so young now.

The weathered rocks returned our howling calls,
fuelled by young and restless lungs.
Here in the hindsight it all comes clear,
that we grew by the water, we grew by the seas.

If only we were so young now,
guarded by the cliffs somehow.
Our place beneath the looming pines

If only we were so young now,
sheltered under birches crowns.
If only we were so young now

If only we were so young now,
guarded by the cliffs somehow.
Our place beneath the looming pines

If only we were so young now,
sheltered under birches crowns.
If only we were so young now.

You glanced down and off the trail, as we walked in birches halls.
Then suddenly you strayed off,
and the home you had was gone.

So draw a breath and hold it, draw a breath and hold it.

We ran across the grove, though your mother made it clear
that the water is too cold, oh, were we ever listening?

So draw a breath and hold it, draw a breath and hold it.

Maybe that was when we truly came alive.
Tried to fit the world, oh, deep within our yearning lungs.
When we drew breath and held it, drew a breath and

Soon your hair was soaked, scattered clothes along the shore.
And I felt the heat from your breath and the world within your lungs.

So draw a breath and hold it, draw a breath and hold it.

Maybe that was when we truly came alive.
Tried to fit the world, oh, deep within our yearning lungs.
When we drew a breath and held it, drew a breath and held it.

Maybe that was when we truly came alive.
Tried to fit the world, oh, deep within our yearning lungs.
When we drew a breath and held it, drew a breath and held it.
Private notes

“Meet me by the shore”. That’s all I know, from before, from before.
And all my troubles, they are all but dust in raging storms
from before, from before.

You taught me everything.
You told me anything.
You taught me everything.
That’s all I know, that’s all I know, all I know.

“Meet me by the shore”. That’s all she spoke, and all I know, from before.
Once I waited here, the waves rolled in, the wind blew slow.
But now I know, now I know.

You taught me everything.
You told me anything.
You taught me everything.
That’s all I know, that’s all I know, all I know.

You taught me everything.
You told me anything.
You showed me everything.
All I know, All I know, All I know.

Suddenly breathing, humming in sea salt winds.
As we drove further, I heard her, I heard her speak:

“Like kings we’ll rule, like kings we’ll rule the world.”

And the pier, covered by our eager feet.
“This is all I wish for”, he thought as he dove in.

“Like kings we’ll rule, like kings we’ll rule the world.”

There we found something, the cure to help us breathe.
And as we boarded our busses,
we knew, deep beneath our skin:

“Like kings we’ll rule, like kings we’ll rule, like kings we’ll rule the world.

Suddenly breathing, humming in sea salt winds.
