The EP Lyrics

Bricks and Slices

Wild man came
Took me in my bed
Made a woman out of me
Made a devil out of me
La la la…
Our kingdom’s down to bricks and slices
Our temple’s full of snakes and whores
There’s nothing I can tell you to cover up your fears, my dear
And there’s nothing you can tell me to make me feel I’m yours
La la la…
You touch me but I feel nothing
You kiss me but I am bored
It’s not enough to have you near me
I will always ask for more
You changed

3AM

Strangers at bus stops
Lovers with half-smiles
Forced conversations
Lies and lies and lies
My city breathes slowly
My streets are heavy with longing
I’m drunk and fading
I don’t know what your name is
Don’t know what your name is
Don’t know what your name is
Don’t know what your name is
I wish I could stay away from these pale winter days
I wish I could stay away

Oceanisk

Jeg synger ikke længere
Synger ikke længere
Svalehjertet står stille
Ørkensjæl, knoglevinge
Tving mig i sandet.
Water’s rising
Waves keep crashing
Ocean’s awaiting
Horizon’s changing
Water’s rising
Waves keep crashing
Bodies are sinking
The Ocean’s awaiting
Vi fortaber os i uendelige afstande
Drikker af blussende øjeblikke
Lænket til kysten
I sandfængsler og muslingebarrikader
Water’s rising
Waves keep crashing
Ocean’s awaiting
Horizon’s changing
Water’s rising
Waves keep crashing
Bodies are sinking
The ocean’s awaiting
Bodies are sinking…
Svalesangen gider ikke
Fuglehjertet banker ikke
Translation:
I sing no more
Sing no more
Swallowheart is still
Desert-soul, bone-wing
Force me into the sand.
Water’s rising
Waves keep crashing
Ocean’s awaiting
Horizon’s changing
Water’s rising
Waves keep crashing
Bodies are sinking
The ocean’s awaiting
Bodies are sinking…
We lose ourselves in perpetual distances
Drinking in moments ablaze
Chained to the coast
In sand-prisons and mussel-barricades
/Refr.
Swallowsong does not bother
Birdheart does not beat

Red Song

So tired of hearing your voice
So tired of hearing you talk
Shake your head, grit your teeth
This is out of your reach
No more lies, no compromise
This conversation is over!
Meet the monster tonight
With her lips on fire and her song filling the sky
She is changing tonight
Beggar, Bleeder, Cottonmouth
Can’t keep your feet on the ground
Sucker, Stealer, Honeytongue
I’m sick of watching you drown
Speak louder, angry son
How silent you’ve become
Speak louder, angry son
Scream so they can hear you!
Meet the monster tonight
With her lips on fire and her song filling the sky
She is changing tonight
