Lyrics

February MMX

the old man sings
in the face of fear
 
the circular mantra
why are we here
 
the audience is blind
to what takes place
 
in the pillory
life is a stage
 
the vertical lights of death
in codes of red and blue
 
birds in black and white
and the drums of wwii
 
tattooed in numbers
genocide is suicide
 
we are our own enemy
and the last judgement
 
our children are hurting
in the final performance
 
the newborn is still
the rest is silence


 
Norwegian Gothic

this is a history
of pride and romance
 
such an eerie fantasy
when you think about it
 
sins of our fathers
their land and nature
 
amusement and abuse
in the old farm house
 
the good wishes
in black and white
 
photos of ghosts
and the family tree
 
in a circle of fire
traditions dance
 
maidens to the altar
of milk and honey
 
slaughtered goats
fucking in the woods
 
the blood runs deep
this is our heritage



Providence

we drink and drink
a subtle poison
 
more in sorrow
than in anger
 
our skin is so thin
and left to love
 
the sentence we serve
our masks discarded
 
the blind rage of youth
the black starry eyes
 
all animal passions
covering up the truth
 
there is no deliverance
providence is lost
 


September IV

the family is gathering 
in silent prayer
 
before the bed 
where he is laid out 
 
beautiful in black 
and closed eyes 
 
only a boy 
and a brother 
 
and a lover 
and a son 
 
his sudden 
and violent death
 
leaving us without words
and looking away
 
from the mother 
and the father
 
left alone to go through 
a great grief forever
 
Vegard in memoriam 
 
 

England

mount the high horse
and dogs will follow
 
the scent of innocence
the wars of the roses
 
sounding the charge
down in history
 
the hand that offers
the heart is unfaithful
 
full of broken promise
and hidden in the hollow
 
a blood-red coat
white to the bone
 
fit for a queen
and the cloven foot
 
a trophy animal
a lost game
 
 

Island

how did we end 
so far out
 
past praying 
and past recall
 
to believe in nothing
is a faith in itself
 
a lighthouse
in the eye of the storm
 
the nightmare
of the nightmare
 
to follow the signal
of a ghost ship
 
our names are
written in water
 
the knowledge
is all around us
 
we came here 
to be washed away
