Arizona Lights

through the never believe zone
doubting the calculations done
we see what's in our fantasy
and the fascination goes on

the sightings evidently
consists of enormous power
come with us the feeling is real
shake your life and get it done

society collapses one by one
changing structure by eons
we have methods for progress
faster than the truth we know

we are the aliens connected to the space we know
with our two feets on the milky way
we are the aliens connected to the space we know
and we´re still waiting for a sign

the new start has begun year zero
without religions no wars
the chance we have been given
can´t be taken for granted

we no longer sell our souls for guns
nor we speak the words tooth for a tooth
eye for an eye
face to face

we are the aliens connected to the space we know
with our two feets on the milky way
we are the aliens connected to the space we know
and we´re still waiting for a sign

Battered

I used to be a man of seeing
but now I´m blind
lost my map in a wood of fools
broke many tree's to get out

I travelLed around the world
I follow your every step
breathing heAvily behind
and I gave yoU hell

eyes blinded heaRt in motion
In here we live in loneliness
and we seek for peAce

this battered heart beating per hour
not minutes
I am the ugly monster that I created

stalker of life depraved soul
say I'm sorry time and time again

eyes blinded heart in motion
In here we live in loneliness
and we seek for peace

eyes blinded
eyes blinded

eyes blinded heart in motion
In here we live in loneliness
and we seek for peace

 

Brandbergen, Stockholm via kalmar till Malmö (swedish)

hallå vart tog tiden vägen min vän
har ingen koll längre och haltar fram
intellektet intakt men förvirringen är total

funderar mycket på allt som varit
på vad du jag och alla andra har gjort
men jag ska inte stanna vid detta tänkande
Aldrig stanna aldrig se mig om igen

motorvägar, mellan stockholm kalmar och Malmö
minns inte längre vart jag är på väg

jagad med kniv uppför ett berget
sparkad på en skolgård av asfalt
lek i övergivna skrotbilar och
duperar poliser

ljuger med sött ansikte och len röst javisst
minnen som klättrar uppför väggarna
murar av förnekelser eller osanningar

motorvägar, mellan stockholm kalmar och Malmö
minns inte längre vart jag är på väg

jag har gått vidare nu är inget sig likt
kanske var det du som förändrade allt
likt en skalpell som skar bort en tumör

den delen av livet vi kan vara utan
men är livrädd för metastaserna
som kan radas upp likt en ond arme´
likt en ond arme'

motorvägar, mellan stockholm kalmar och Malmö
minns inte längre vart jag är på väg

 

Brandbergen, Stockholm via Kalmar till Malmö (english)

hello where did the time go my friend
have'nt got a clue anymore I'm limping
intellect intact but the confusion is massive

thinking a lot about all thats been
of what you me and everyone else has done
but Im not going to stop at this
never stop never look back again

highways between stockholm, kalmar and malmö
no longer remember where Im going

chased by someone with a knife up a hill
Got kicked on a schoolyard of asfalt
play in abandoned cars and duping the police

lying with a sweet face and soft voice sure
memories climbing the walls
fences of denial or lies

highways between stockholm kalmar and malmö

No longer remember where Im going
I have moved on but nothing is what it seems
maybe it was you who changed everything
like a scalpel cutting of a tumour

the part of life we dont need
but afraid of the metastases
rounded up like an evil army



C:

Crash

tuning in to get the rush
turning on the lights
burning the fuse to the end
like the dreams I have

crashing with cars in walls

feels like i'm fooling myself
to think that life is worth living
not screw you over with this
up there like

crashing with cars in walls

do you see what i see?
do you feel what i feel?
do you see what i see?
is this real are we free?

crashing with cars in walls

the poison in my head rise
you told this would happen
couldn´t imagine the power
that holds me down

crashing with cars in walls

do you see what i see?
do you feel what i feel?
do you see what i see?
is this real are we free?

i am under the stars now
how i want to get up there
rightfull place for everyone
the stars like us

do you see what i see?
do you feel what i feel?
do you see what i see?
is this real are we free?

D:

Dark heart of me

I let my self into the Darkness
condemned like dead pagans
returning from the fields of hedonists
spin the wheel And see who wins

angels falls hard from heaVen
but we're not safe here
the woods and the house drags me In
eyes watching and the turning heaD

into the darkness of my heart
love disapear without a trace
it sewers it sewers it sewers
all that I have left

long gone since I've Loved
I think the blood runs around
my heart pumps for no soul
as I let mY self deeper iNto

if I fall
I'm in love with the dark
I'm spread out like a dead
I'm letting myself deeper into the dark

into the darkness of my heart
love disapear without a traCe
it sewers it sewers

insanity spaces of my world
thin wall creeps nearer
all I can feel is the Hate for you
it's like you cut me open

into the darkness of my heart
love disapear without a trace
it sewers it sewers

Ghost

the ghost in me comes out at night
like strange cold cornered souls
I have a night to save your love
my bones hurt where is my home

the train goes by dont even notice
I dont ever notice

the train goes by dont even notice
thou it never ends it's like a dream
poses a threat to me out there
I will never come back again
I will never come back again

I am the ghost in your dreams
I hurt you while you sleep
I am your favourite shadow
tears for your soul again and again

we are merely human Flaw
causing drama Is all we do
spill the blood of childRen
and the ghosts hunt you down

the train goes by dont evEn notice
I dont even notice

the train goes by dont even notice
love a poison in veins
when the ghost in me haunts you
will never leave your side

I am the ghost in your dreams
I hurt you while you sleep
I am your favourite shadow
tears for your soul again and again

now the end begins here and I see you
your eyes are grey nothing gained
I leave you now dont follow
I'll find you if needed
I'll find you if needed

I'am the ghost in your dreams
I hurt you while you sleep
I am your favourite shadow
tears for your soul again and again

I:

In between and above it all

today is one of those in between
feeling sore in my mind
I'm dreaming of relief and comfort
Im gonna hold hard to what I've got

love wrapped in plastic the hours
strenght of every limb posing
electrifying emotion the air
some things should never come down

in between and above it all
there is were it all happens
when time goes go and you're missing it

flowing light that surrounds you
the very being of your soul
the aura of million colors
vibrating along with universe

I dont dream high just know what I am
love is here where I stand I know
yesterday brought me pain
today I look ahead of me

In between and above it all
there is were it all happens
when time goes go and you're missing it

feel that Im far above now

In between and above it all
there is were it all happens
when time goes go and you're missing it

In between and abOve it all
there is Were it alL happens
it's in between when it all is So dark

Love And Hate Song

sometimes so blocked i can´t see clear
was i wrong was i right
did i know it was bad for us all
this life in this space

a shame to forsake love i know
we are the same lovely creatures

our love song became a hate song

so how do we move on from here?
after our disastrous demise
christ lord i´ve hated you enough
time is my own not yours

have been shackled for so long
now i´m free but i´m shaking

our love song became a hate song

far apart in space
closer than before in spirit
i sewered my head my soul to fly away
almost died inside but got stronger

now i´m coming back
it took me sometime
it took me sometime

our love song became a hate song

M:

Molecules And Carbon

aren´t we all the same
the origin is from space you know
should it be so hard to co-operate
not to kill each other

i know it´s a more complex thing
it´s not just black and white
but nevertheless it´s our
children that suffer the most

you know
we are molecules and carbon
you see
we're nothing but a smoking gun

we look to understand our minds
and the black hole out there
i think when we find out the truth
we will all die

you know
we are molecules and carbon
you see
we're nothing but a smoking gun

hiding in my closet nowadays
i conspire with everything around me
hey we´re just carbon and molecules
we´re everything and nothing

so stop
so just stop

you know
we are molecules and carbon
you see
we're nothing but a smoking gun

You know
We are molecules and carbon
You see
we are the ticking bomb in this world

Picture frame eternity

days fLows like water in a fall
moving pictures are slowing down
black spaces grOwing by numbers
I dont even feel like before

my theme these days is floatinG
away like those songs we heard
black to white to the colors we see
imagine I will grow and even taste good

pictures passing by
in my memory
snapshots of a life
it happens when you die

the future seem to come faster
there is nothing to slow it down
frames flicker and I dont notice
the underlines never seem to notice

as I sit on the train to spain
watching my life in pictures on Facebook
what have I learned since 1985
probably nothing until 2008

pictures passing by
in my memory
snapshots of a life
it happens when you die

things are rushing by
in this life of mine
snapshots of a life
it happens when you die

no I dont smell no more
nothing smell no more
picture frames without pictures
there's no more words
and It's still good

pictures passing by
in my memory
snapshots of a life
it happens when you die

things a rushing by
in this life of mine
snapshots of a life
it happens when you die

Pushing The Angels Astray

i've been thinking a lot about death lately
is it fear of dying
nostalgia is dead
i´m cleaning out my head


all these relations and things i´ve done
i will lay them to rest and start again
from square number one

all i´m trying to do
i´m pushing the angels astray
i´m just not ready yet
is there any hope for me

i´m Standing frozen in the hallway
my face in the mirror staring at me
it wont leave my mind

i wish i only could be high
i wish i could fly away like the bird
or like the angels i´m pushing away

all i´m trying to do
i´m pushing the angels astray
i´m just not ready yet
is there any hope for me

cuz i'm pushing the angels

keeping my faith to myself lately
is it fear of losing or dying
i push my angels astray

all i´m trying to do
i´m pushing the angels astray
i´m just not ready yet
is there any hope for me

Salvation

will we see the end of this dark place
walk right through of the night
to be someone else
instead of what we are

is there forgiveness enough
to save us from ourselves
to be clean just for a day
to bath in light just for a moment

looking for salvation
searching the dream
see the revelation in your soul

in my book i do right all the time
bending the rules as i see fit
if god exist i don´t know
i don´t think i will burn in hell anyway

looking for salvation
searching the dream
see the revelation in your soul

creating my own space
feeding my monster of emptiness
digging deeper into my mind
and finding nothing

looking for salvation
searching the dream
see the revelation in your soul

Sumersault

filtered through paradise imagination
driving past my favourite place of choice
not allowed these days to feel free
i´m facing the consequence of having fun

jilted generation shifting faces
becoming numb we dont have a place to rest
allow ourselves to be happy again
face to face with anger and no fear

doing the summersault with you
and i dont see the end of this
the best days of my life is yet to come
yet to come

i don´t fear life
having to fun living
a view of life I have from my place in the sun
i see everything passes by
old sins and people i´ve known

we can´t go back to golden days
is this what happens in midlife crisis
i won´t be looking back in anger
cuz i dont hate you my little tin soldier

doing the summersault with you
and i dont see the end of this
the best days of my life is yet to come
yet to come

surprised by death

do I regret listening to the voices
reTturning fresh doing right this time
repent differences and lure the soul back
I Would be slave forever and ever

death Is coming sooner or later
but the surprise does'nt get smaller
but death comes iN small doses
as life goes by day by day by day

it all came crashing in
whisPers became a roar
imbedded mE in madness
and my soul became a roar

blAck on my shoulder gaining in
looking serene with bould wings
whispers of taKing a different turn
that something's got to give

death is coming sooner or later
death is coming Sooner or later

lightbringer on the other side
told me to keep the same path
that I'm perfect like this
that the change would destroy me

it all came crashing in
whispers became a roar
imbedded me in madness
and my soul became a roar

death is coming sooner or later
death is coming sooner or later
death is coming sooner or later
death is coming sooner or later

it all came crashing in
whispers became a roar
imbedded me in madness
and my soul became a roar

Take Comfort In Being Sad

breaking the ice to get real
to get in you
to feel the strenght one more time
trying so hard all the time

actions putting stress on my psyche
nerves already in bad shape
comfort brings lazyness i know

we make way for someone else
the love your crucified self

climbing the tree in my imagination
bloodvessels filled to the brim
darkness closing in
takes me away

i am laughing with the earth in my mouth
returning with a great vengence
lost this time i'm barely alive

we make way for someone else
the love your crucified self

your eyes flickers and i laugh
as the clouds comes rushing
to cover my body in shadows
i cry an ocean a universe

we make way for someone else
the love your crucified self

The Blues And The Reds

standing on the beach
with the knife in my hand
no memory of last night
have i lost it again

tried hard not to fail
but the blues got an hold on me
a man reaching out to hold my hand

i'm falling apart again
i lost myself back when
the blues turned to red

mouth moving but no words
skin is turning red
with my face turned away
i´m digging deep
into my damaged goods
it´s like cutting knives
i´m barely holding up
i´m just a puppet at your strings

i'm falling apart again
i lost myself back when
the blues turned to red

noises bring a ghost to me
past closing in on me
the mirror shows me nothing
and nothing is my friend

covered in dirty soil
taking me down this time
Staring into my eyes holding my soul

i'm falling apart again
i lost myself back when
the blues turned to red


the bombs

welcome to the era of empty souls
to the bottomless hole of anguish
selling kids for guns for death
genocide the adult playground

the bombs are falling down
we can hear the roaring sound
no time to find our loved ones
join hands for the last time

we run blindly for shelter
there's no escape from
you will never get away

can you see the beautiful light
the deadly lightning fire
please stranger hold my hand
I'll watch over you

it's easy to run and hide
Than stand and fight a greater deed
but who is to say what's right
I save my loved one
the one I would die for

we run blindly for shelter
there's no escape from
you will never get away

Train

train are going to the inner core
louder Than the heavens roar
towards down deatH dwelling
bending down beforE it

falling from grace again
lines of trecherous words
all of them throwing me Back
to the hall of hoLy voices

long trAin vein of trails
taking in falling out
searCh of inside heaven
long train are going by

bring me slowly to an halt
but the long trains dont stop
the long train enters your veins
lights strob like falling snow

crystals sucked in your lungs
beat the heart beat that face
close call last rites is here
and nothing will ever
be the same again never again

long train vein of trails
taKing in falling out
search of inside heaven
long train are going by

Long train vein Of trails
taking in falling out
search of insiDe heaven
passing by

this is Pain and sorrow
this is the end

lonG train vein of trails
taking in falling out
search of inside heaven
long train arE going by

long train vein of trails
taking in falling out
search of inside heaven
passing by

long train vein of trails
On a long long way

Wasted

leaving this city tonight
so much lost love
so many breakdowns
so tired of being bruised

tired of this over and over
all day all night
a light in there i can´t see
i can only feel
a little love
Just a little love

is there enough room for love in you
is there enough room for love in me

leaving this night speeding up
tired of pain and suffering
i see this in every face i meet
in every friend i have

you and me are expendable
we don´t feel solidarity
devoured by invisible monsters
we don´t care anymore

is there enough room for love in you
is there enough room for love in me

this town makes you sink
and you die at it´s feet
you have lost your crown
back in the days

heading for something
something other than this
something else than this dark life
Something other than this

is there enough room for love in you
is there enough room for love in me


we are rockets

back in the eighties
screwed up hairdos and painted faces
our fingers in the air
to everyone who asked for it

to confused to focus
we tried to bring down the stars
lost Smalltown kids we were
ordinary kids without
ordinary backgrounds

hey you asked us what we are
we are rockets but you are standing still
hey who are you?
we are rockets

like everything
it all comes to an end we part like lovers
we dont have words for our struggle
we just being lame

talk about the future
worry about the news of the world
step into the wild
that's what we need
step into the wild

hey you asked us what we are
we are rockets but you are standing still
hey who are you?
we are rockets

Step into the wild

hey you asked us what we are
we are rockets but you are standing still
hey who are you?
we are rockets
