Da Capo

 / Songwriter: Höskuldur

I'm looking into the stories of war
suffering nations I see
crippled heroes fight like before
to create history

That's the story that we have seen
it hasn't thought us anything

Victims of war, they tell us the same
They can't forget all the pain
war is fought, it's a few mens game
they are the only who gain

That's the story that we have seen
it hasn't tought us anything

Wars have been fought for centuries
it ain't no use to cry for peace
lifes are lost and it's a shame
we only got ourself to blame

It doesn't matter if we make a stand
this will remain just the same
millions go, we all know where they'll end
in a grave with no name

that's the story...

Taboo

 / Songwriter: Höskuldur / Lyrics: Egill Lár

Standing in the doorway
seeking shelter from the rain
her worn out dress and careless look
was made of something her step-dad took

Heading out on the porch
she needs the rays of sunlight
her spirits out with no place to hide
was made when her step-dad took her pride

Eyes are showing no affection
staring into the wrong direction
it's hard to face what's done

Confront the changes, tell the world
Confront the changes, tell the world
Confront the changes and tell the world

Sleeping alone in some shack
shell be longing for her pillow
to loose all sight of the track
is the bitterest pill to swallow

A little bit of stability
was all she ever wanted
she lost control and her sanity
when her step-dad took her ability

Eyes are showing...

Vibes

 / Songwriter: Höskuldur / Lyrics: Egill Lár

I was mad about those things you said
talking about it like it's already dead
when we still got some love to give to the world

Come on closer lets look at our star
away from nature we drifted so far
but we still got some love to give to the world

You thought
love was a long forgotten word
you thought
that love belongs to another world

Way beneath you is a pounding heart
it it stops, nothing makes it start
lets all give some love, a gift to the world

you thought
love was a long...

Tomorrow

 / Songwriter: Friðrik / Lyrics: Egill Lár

Stepping into the light
from deep thoughts in my mind
I always knew there was light
but it was so hard to find

I extended my steps
no signs were to lead me away

yeah I'm longing for tomorrow
to deal with my own fate
yeah I'm longing for tomorrow
to see it's not too late, too late

Stepping out of the blue
with no reasons at all
I always knew I was due
to face my rise and my fall

I extended my steps
no signs were to lead me away

I'm longing for tomorrow
to deal with my own fate
yeah I'm longing for tomorrow
to see it's not too late, too late

I extended...

Awake

 / Songwriter: Friðrik / Höskuldur

Another sleepless night
I can't close my eyes
Something keeps me up
it's hard to recognise.
My body is tired
but my mind is wide awake
cause my doubtful past
won't give me a break.
I toss and turn
'till the light of the day.
When the sun comes up
my fear goes away.
As the day goes by
with fading light,
I prepare for another sleepless night

I lie awake at nights
I can't fall asleep
I lie awake at nights
I can't fall asleep

Cause of fear

Another night comes on,
I tremble with fear,
I wish I only could
make myself disappear
My past comes over me
time after time.
I know I must confess
I've committed a crime.

Brazilian Sky

 / Songwriter: Höskuldur / Lyrics: Egill Lár

Thirteen were down
in most cruel way.
The eyes rolled back, wide open
on a sunny day.
The youngest was four, I think.
But I'm not sure.
To witness a thing like this
is hard to ignore.

Carcasses left to dry
under Brazilian sky

Imagine their lifes
nowhere to go.
The fear to look over their shoulder
really shows.
Piling up kids
from desperate streets.
lowing their aim and emptying their guns
shuffling their feets.

Sanitary regulation
under Brazilian sun

Doubts

 / Songwriter: Höskuldur / Lyrics: Egill Lár

Temptations
weakens my soul
without forty days
and forty nights
I doubt my role

Salvation
struck my mind
that's no solution
to my confusion
My path I'll find

I'm hidden in these works of those artists
the same who told you to read between the lines
I'm hidden in these works of those artists
the same who had your future in their hands

Limitations
hustles my mind
no roads are here
to lead me there
I'm staggering blind

Destionations
are out of sight
around the bend
is the end
I'll make it right

I'm hidden...

Q No A

 / Songwriter: Höskuldur / Lyrics: Egill Lár

How far can I go
without coming to an end?
For how long can I talk
without repeating myself?
How much can I drink
without taking a leak?

How is the weather?
tell me how is the bloody weather?
Do you like girls
or are you prefering boys?
Do u sleep late
or do you never get up?

Not a man of patience
nor self importance
but I do like the company of myself

Not a man of...

Observing

 / Songwriter: Höskuldur / Lyrics: Egill Lár

Well I'm just standing here
watching over the killings
Well I'm just standing here
watching the rivers of blood

No need to complain
it's all quite insane

Well I'm just standing here
observing the laws of the jungle
Well I'm just standing here
frequently looking away

It's not my intention
to get your attention

Well I'm just standing here
I'm about to close my eyes
Well I'm just standing here
on a graveyard in disguise

It's not my intention
to get your attention
to this casusal looking war
So I'll just be standing here

Adorable

 / Songwriter: Höskuldur

There's a mysterious look in the eyes
with a glimpse of light.
Adorable voice and words so nice
appearance so polite.

Oh her hair so long
to touch her is a sin
Oh a look so strong
She's got perfect skin.

Lips like sugar, face of grace
and all the beauty inside.
A perfect body, made to amaze
with motion full of pride.

Oh her hair...

Now I never see that face
it feels like going blind.
The utter state of grace
that enchanted my mind.

So Be It

 / Songwriter: Egill Lár

Have to go, you won't know
when my sins begin
About to leave, you will grieve
you won't see me again

With respect I reject
the claws of the laws.
Lifes should not be taken away

Moment alone, face the stone
blank mind, feeling so numb
My greatest fear, stands so near
whispering name my name.

With respect I reject
the claws of the laws.
Lifes should not be taken away

Shoot my vain.
Shoot my brain.
electrify.
hang me high.
Gas in a chamber of steel.
