1. The Modern Things

All the modern things
Like cars and such
Have always existed
They've just been waiting in a mountain
For the right moment
Listening to the irritating noises
Of dinosaurs and people
Dabbling outside

(Enginn fylgist alveg)
Nobody really follows

(Sólin sekkur)
The sun sets

(Enginn sér við mér)
Nobody gets the better of me

(Það er sól þegar hann)
There's a sun when he

(Andar inn í mig)
Breathes into me

(Hann bítur mig)
He bites me

(Hann bítur mig)
He bites me

(Já, hann kemur með)
Yes, he comes along

(Fylgir eftir mér)
Follows me

(Telur mig)
Counts me??

(Siglir eftir mér)
Sails behind me 

(Enginn sér þegar hann...)
Nobody sees when he...

(Kemur með...)
Comes along...

All the modern things
Have always existed
They've just been waiting
To come out
And multiply
And take over
It's their turn now


2. Omnis Mundi Creatura

Every creature on earth
Resembles a book and a picture
Like looking in a mirror
Every creature on earth
Resembles a book and a picture
Like looking in a mirror

Our life, our death
Our position in life, our destiny
Faithful symbol

The rose reflects our position
A fitting interpretation
Lessons about our life

While it blooms in the early morning
Its blossoms fade
And petals fall with age

Our life, our death
Our position in life, our destiny
Faithful symbol

His life, his existence
His sorrow, tribulation and obligation
To end life in death

Death ends life, sorrow ends laughter
Darkness ends daylight, high tide covers the seaport
Morning ends evening

Mockery drives away sorrow
Worn by the mask of death
Our first assumption is tribulation

Our second is sorrow
And then death wins

Our life, our death
Our position in life, our destiny
Faithful symbol

3. Neuroticfish - The Bomb

I wear my bomb near to my chest, is it ticking?
Cold, hard, no time to rest, I feel it kicking
I wear my bomb near to my chest, is it moving?
Cold, hard, no time to stop, and never soothing
I keep it safe and warm, I hope it never burns me
I keep it safe from harm, I hope it never hurts me
I wear my bomb near to my heart, When I'm running
Stone cold, right from the start, I feel it humming.]
I lay my bomb near to my bed, when I'm sleeping
Every single lonely night, I feel it creeping
I keep it safe and warm, I hope it never burns me
I keep it safe from harm, I hope it never hurts me
Terrorize me, come and take my soul
Paralyze me, consume me whole
Terrify me, come and take my home
Analyze me, you know I'm not that strong
I keep it safe from harm, I hope it never hurts me
I keep it safe and warm, I hope it never burns me
Terrorize me, come and take my soul
Paralyze me, consume me whole
Terrify me, come and take my home
Analyze me, you know I'm not that strong.
Terrify me
Analyze me
You know I'm not that strong

4. Venus Hum - Wooly Snow

Alone in the electricity tonight,
Mouths and moving pictures telling lies,
How the TV warms my cold hands,
Sad how nothing ever reaches back.

Little boys, little boys, little girls,
Come over here,
I want 2 or 3 of my own,
Little boys, little girls,
Please let me near you,
I am no mother alone.

Way too cold for the people in the skin,
Shelter us in the wooly snow.
Way too cold for the people in the skin,
Shelter us in the wooly snow.

Radio shocked me in the tub last night,
The magazine wallpaper,
Stares back "sleep tight",
Where are the people,
Why don't they hear me,
How can those dearest be so empty?

Little boys, little boys, little girls,
Come over here,
I want 2 or 3 of my own,
Little boys, little girls,
Please let me near you,
I am no mother alone.

Way too cold for the people in the skin,
Shelter us in the wooly snow.
Way too cold for the people in the skin,
Shelter us in the wooly snow.
Way too cold for the people in the skin,
Shelter us in the wooly snow

6. Transformer

Wake up, wake up
You cannot stay
We have just removed an A-Port
From your brain
All these years
A string of lies
A perfect blue print
Open your eyes

(Transformer)
You are no scientist
You're not an amorist
(Transformer)
Those lifelines don't exist
Welcome to square zero
(Transformer)
You're no protagonist
You are no gentleman
(Transformer)
(Don't) Recite your name again
Welcome to square zero

Get up, get up
It's time to go
You will soon feel somewhat better
Take it slow
Don't be embarrassed
That's O.K.
And for the record
It's a beautiful day

(Transformer)
You are no scientist
You're not an amorist
(Transformer)
Those lifelines don't exist
Welcome to square zero
(Transformer)
You're no protagonist
You are no gentleman
(Transformer)
(Don't) Recite that name again
Welcome to square zero


7. Stolen Thoughts

Every morning I wake up
With a new identity
With some new memories
Of my former life

All the thoughts I ever had
All the memories I can recite
Are just an illusion
Implanted in my brain

And even the city changes
With new buildings and new roads
But I really cannot tell
If it's just an illusion

Implanted illusions is all-
that I can remember
Stolen thoughts of a time
When I met you last November
Now, there's just confusion-
at this place without a sun
I try so hard to escape
There's no place to which to run

And suddenly, it hits me
That there was no sun for years
The illusions fade away
Making room for reality

9. Atlas

I'm a thousand people
From day to day
We are all airborne
Without ground control
I call my name
In the maelstrom

I'm not givin' in
So don't you give in
I'll be your Atlas
And carry our world

But I guess
I won't save the world today
I'm just trying to survive
And perhaps I'll dream again
But I will find my cross
And I will take us home

But I guess
I won't save the world today

I'm a thousand people
From day to day
Blues and so untitled
On the road to where
I'm losing my name
In the maelstrom

But I'm not givin' in
So don't you give in
I'll be your Atlas
And carry us home

But I guess
I won't save your world today

But I guess
I won't save the world today
I'm just trying to survive
And perhaps I'll dream again
But I will find my cross
And I will take us home

But I guess
I won't save the world today
I'm just trying to survive
And perhaps I'll dream again
But I will find my cross
And I will take us home 

But I guess
I won't save the world today

10. Where you are

i did join the race
hunting for success
selling dreams was all i knew
for the rising stars and i did work hard
my important part
all my feelings are with you

where i am
where you are

and i changed my life
and i moved outside
where the water is clear and pure
where the lands are wide
where the air is bright
all my feelings are with you

where i am
where you are

and i walk up the hill
and i can't stand still
'till the day of our last rendez-vous
and the leaves turn red
and i bow my head
all my feelings are with you

where i am
where you are

11. Damaged

I am merely the product
Of the life that I've lived
An amalgam of sorrows
And the wisdom they give 

But the weight has grown heavy
And its dragging me down
It's so hard not to sink now
But I don't want to drown 

I'm damaged
But somehow I've managed
This far
But I don't know if I can find my way back home
I'm damaged
But somehow I've managed
For now
But I don't think I can face this on my own 

There is beauty in hardship
There are poems in grief
There are trials we must go through
Though they may shake our beliefs 

But I don't know how I got here
Lost in the cynical dusk
Set adrift in the worry
That I've no one to trust 

If to suffer is holy
I'll take my share of the pain
I can swim through this sadness
If there's something to gain 

I can reach for the surface
And try to pull myself free
But the last thing I want is
To drag you down here with me 

12. Digital Ghost
 

It started as a joke
Just one of my larks to see
If somehow I could reach you so

I swam into your shores
Through an open window
Only to find you all alone

Curled up with machines
Now it seems you're slipping
Out of the land of the living

Just take a closer look
Take a closer look
At what it is that's really haunting you

I have to trust you'll know
This digital ghost
But I fear there's only so much time
'cause the you I knew is fading away

Hands lay them on my keys
Let me play you again
I am not immune to your net

Find me there in it
I won't go even if in
Your heart only beats ones and O's

Switch you on my friend
Pull you from that rip current
But only you can fight against this

Take a closer look
Just take a closer look
At what it is that's really haunting you

I have to trust you'll know
This digital ghost
But I fear there's only so much time
'cause the you I knew is fading away

Fading
Fading
Away
