Scandinavian minds

We walked far out on Decembers ice
Protected by the absence of light
We were high, we were happy therefore blind 
I thought I was Jesus son
I walk on water, but part time
my father was a priest
You said; you're a funny guy
Tough…
My father really was a priest

I knew it from the start
A worried mind an iron heart
We would not make it back in time
our hang man was the April sun
April sun, oh april sun, go easy on our easy on our

Scandinavian minds
In this light  all our lies swell
Like dead boar bodies 
Like dead boar bodies
Like dead boar bodies 
in the sun

How can, how can, how can it be
that everything I long for vanish into the sea
There’s a hole in the ice were your boots used to stand
There’s a hole in the sky and the sun is coming down
Swim for your life, swim under ice
I was born and raised up north, I will be fine but
April sun, oh April sun go easy on our easy on our

Scandinavian minds
In this light  all our lies swell
Like dead boar bodies 
Like dead boar bodies
Like dead boar bodies 
in the sun



Wolverine, Death machine

I found your wings outside the bar
Without fear I went inside
You greeted me with a smile
Showing your wolf teeth
You said I, I, I
I am happy you’re finally free
I’m happy this does not hurt for you
Then you pushed your cigarette into my eye

From lioness to wolverine
From wolverine to death machine

By her side Mr. Innocent eyes
chained to her wrist
He does not know the meaning of pain yet
Oh merciful, oh merciful god
Have mercy have mercy on him
Have mercy, have mercy on him
Don’t ever make him understand

From lioness to wolverine 
from wolverine to death machine

 

Cedar tree

Don’t have no cedar tree
To which I can return like a magpie before I burn
When my fear
has destroyed what once was me
No green foliage plateau to lay my wings upon before I go

Oh ceder tree, rock me
Ceder, rock me
Take the worry of my mind, let me fade out let’s get numb

Heroin smooth 
that’s how thing’s used to ´fore I layed my eyes upon tree
There is no trouble when your tree-top-high
I don’t speak before I know what I’m talking about, but I did not feel I had to know what it was like
To fill the inside of my mouth
With dry dead soil 
Kick in my teeth and break my arms just to find myself begging by your feet

Oh ceder tree, rock me
Ceder, rock me
Ceder tree, rock me
Ceder, rock me
Let the rope fall down and let me climb towards the sun, I am ready
Your stem is thick, it’s thick enough to carry me though I am heavy
Let me fall asleep upon your crown of leaves,
Rock me

 

Tinder Stick Neck

If I would escape, fall asleep with laced blood
No more doubt, no worry, not deaths breath raging in my neck
I’m row deer, trapped in this dreadful pit
I know the eagle kills more than he can eat

I can’t find peace, with your eyes nailed on me
I can’t find peace, ‘fore you break my

Tinder stick neck
Tinder stick breath
Tinder stick heart
Oh merciless death
I should know you by now
Cause I shook your hand more than twice
I’ve looked you in the eye
Give me respite

But if I am to die
Lay my row deer heart in morphine bath
Sweet delusion, stay with me ‘til the end of time
Please continue to rule my mind
I will be an impala soon walking on peaceful land
That’s what I wanna believe when my hooves lift from the ground
The sound of flapping wings over my tinder stick neck

I can’t find peace with your shadow circling around me
I can’t find peace, ’fore you break my

Tinder stick neck
Tinder stick breath
Tinder stick heart
Merciless death
I should know you by now
Cause I shook your hand more than once I’ve looked you in the eye
Give me respite


17

When we meet I’m 17 again
I’m a baseball of glass
You wear your Babe Ruth smile,
your favorite bat,
I am nailed to the wooden ground

We are tarantulas, one must die, make space
So the other one can breathe
My destiny was written in my genes
I know that I will die, it scares me but sometimes it gives me peace.

I can’t walk this earth and grief
Someone so close to me but impossible to reach
I can’t live this life you see
I must’ve been born to be with you and I can´t change destiny
I wish that I’d been wiser when I was 17

This love is like the seasons, dead as spring,
resurrecting. changing body, changing skin
Oh why must it look so pretty and why must it be so mean
I wish that I’d been wiser when I was 17

You said don’t hold no grudge on me
But that’s what I have to hang on to
You said you will soon run out of tears
But I still live my life like it’s been over for years

I can’t live this life you see
I must have been born to be with you and I can’t change destiny
And you have vanished into the air
the very same air in which must live, which I must breath

I wish that I’d been wiser when I was
I wish that I’d been wiser when I was
I wish that I’d been wiser when I was
I wish that I’d been wiser when I was 17

I know you can’t see me from your side of the track
Life's a locomotive, it’s blocking our view as it’s passing through
I’m stuck out here, but for a moment there
I thought I saw your face flash by in a window on that train
I wish that I’d been wiser when I was
17

 

Wooden arms

When you play there's no guitar
strings attached to your arms
Brother if I ever fall
May the wind carry every single note from heart to heart
I'm tied to the weight of words
shame and guilt there's love and thirst
When you play there's no such curse
No words can embrace such dept
Nor define what it’s worth

Oh ho steady tempo
it's your amplified heart
keeps my pulse from fading out
from fading out

But brother If I had to leave
don't you go and look for me
not in the pines nor in the city lights,
I won't be found
Wooden arms and vessel full of blood
Where did you learn to play like that?
There is a crossroad where the devil is waiting at 
But I know you haven't been cause your soul is still intact

Oh ho, steady tempo
it's your amplified heart
keeps my pulse from fading out
show my heart how to beat and pump
force the air into my lungs


Majestic Jaws

There used to be a time when I saw time
as never ending
A rabbits heart, a nervous ache
I am bow string about to break
Before I touched Satan’s tools
we used to dance in harmony
Now I crawl to the rhythm of your slave drum
I'm drawn towards the mesmerizing choirs
singing about relief
and his majestic jaws

Your soothing words are feather light they travel with the polar wind
but I'm headed south
I phlebotomize to gain strength, I drink to take control
though this battle can't be won
Before I learned the secret rules
and heard of scientific proof
I was secure in the arms of my savior
Now I'm a trembling flame in the hurricanes heart
I'm as fragile as a wafer ´tween his
majestic jaws

 

Hawthorn

I’m dry as tinder, you’re diesel drum
I’m trying to keep the distance
Just as planned
The hawthorn, Berlin, the red sea
knows how I feel, divided
close to nothing, left of what I used to be

I will die first
I will die
I will die first
I will die
from thirst

And the love I ever had to give
I wasted it on you as a kid
You did not split my heart, you tore what was me apart
It was not about love, I worshiped you like they worshiped Manson to.

It was devotion that caused the distance
It was the damage that made me
I’m constantly paying a debt
for all the things you wasted and the money you kept
Hawthorn smell you take me by the arm
You kick start my heart, you kick start my heart again
Hawthorn smell you take me back in time
You kick start my heart, you kick start my heart again

And the love I ever had to give
I wasted on you as a kid
You did not split my heart, you tore what was me apart
It was not about love, I worshiped you like they worshiped Manson too.

 

Voodoo whispering

Yester love, is it true what I’ve heard about you
You got cyanid eyes, I have been such a fool
My life is now in the hands of any fool that wants it to be
You’ve got a lioness smile,
I have chained myself to the wailing wall, been a slave under the needle
I flew with the swift to a magic land where the colors went from red to green, from green to blue, from blue to black, to black, to black
In order to stay away from you

Yester friend is that you again
coming back to kiss, then have them kill me
I’ve got fifteen uniforms, I’ve got 96 degrees
to protect my frozen body from being reminded of your heat.
I’m gonna meet you with a gun in my hand you will leave alone
I’m gonna meet you with a gun in my hand and you will leave with blood on your hands

You spellbind my legs with your voodoo whispering
you erase the space between us with my feet
You spellbind my legs with your vodoo-whispering
you erase the space between us with my feet
with my feet

 

Streiff

The heart has its reasons, which reason does not know
I need these shots to gain control
Racing at a break neck speed
tax the body heavily

It is a narrow road
That we walk
It’s narrow road
It’s narrow road that we walk
but we are lost

You said come hang with me
Prepare yourself for misery
I’m dry as tinder you’re a diesel drum
Come lay your body next to mine
I’m gonna drown your sorrows like a kitten in the tide
Throw away what weighs you down
There comes a time for you to pay

Like Streiff the horse you carry me
Over foggy fields
The bullet in your neck makes
you hard to steer
You’re leading me towards the enemies
Love you’re leading me towards the enemies
Love you’re leading me towards the enemies
Love you’re leading me towards the enemies

It is a narrow road
That we walk
It’s a down bound spiral but it works as a cure
if only I can have
some more
