Johnny Flew 05:33
JOHNNY FLEW Johnny flew, flew over our heads and the feathers now I keep you have gone to a place you’ve dissolved in the sunset I will join you one day but that time is not yet he buried you as the rain fell he buried you as the rain fell fell heavy from his heart the question in my soul, it will never quiet down if I could have it undone if I could have it undone, the question screams, why but one cannot decide, who gets to live and who gets to die but one cannot decide, who gets to live and who gets to die you spoke to me, you stroked my soul like no one else has done or will and memories they turn up almost ghostly and I welcome them, and I welcome them and I welcome them when they do that’s how I remember you mostly a spirit passing, and through me flew you were in me and I were in you ”I will see you in our next lifetime when we both are cats” Johnny flew Johnny flew flew away with my heart flew away with my heart Johnny flew Johnny flew flew away with my heart and I’m bringing the feathers, they’re ours too keep

Cultures 04:31
CULTURES is this the end that I’ve so long condemned I counted the hours before it began were they seized our youth and our griefs forced to blank pages thrown to the bottom off the sea I held up my hands he mocked me and danced danced on a river but the river ran dry I see how people are running wild coming out of the shadows thought they were buried in the night they’re coming out from the shadows I heard the bells ring out and then the whispers of the convicted concealed in a shell they said; do not to confuse us with insane people for they all had their reasons but nothing to gain I see how people are running wild thought they were buried in the night they’re coming out from the shadows there’s a call for them a revolution that will seize our lights and give us the dark but remember not to judge remember reality I praise our cultures and differences

STICKS AND BRANCHES nude circles bloodlines dancing pines trees rattles wolf is listening gathering humans collecting sticks and branches collecting sticks and branches impulsive identities ground of solemnity hawks watching raising their hands natives laughter collecting sticks and branches collecting sticks and branches individual colors painting lowlands blurry horizons leather bracelets made by the legendary made by the legendary lynx lurk keeping us company luminous cat eyes homeless lodgers lives dies collecting sticks and branches collecting sticks and branches collecting sticks and branches collecting sticks and branches

VULTURE/CANNIBAL I never really wanted to leave that place it was crawling of infected turbulence insects eating up each other coming down coming up coming down coming up from their holes vast poisonous threads of anger binding everybody together wounds of spectacular accusations from the herds of red rooms while with precise instruments picking in some open flesh not awaiting the judges' answers a sweet illusion of a myriad of dancers you’re a vulture, you’re a cannibal you’re a vulture, you’re a cannibal you’re a vulture, you’re a cannibal, you’re a vulture, you’re a cannibal you’re a snake, you’re a hologram, you’re a peasant you’re a vulture oh how it fascinated me I never really wanted to leave a herd of vultures adventure’s challenging everybody’s limits of feast no one better than the other no one better than the other and no one worse than me, in the middle on the outskirts, below and under above it all, above it all, above it all you’re a vulture, you’re a cannibal, you’re a vulture, you’re a cannibal you’re a snake, you’re a hologram, you’re a peasant, you’re a vulture you’re a snake, you’re a hologram, you’re a peasant, you’re a cannibal you’re a snake, you’re a hologram, you’re a peasant, you’re a vulture you’re a vulture

COVER MY EARS It’s not getting easier to sleep It’s not getting easier It’s not getting easier to sleep It’s not getting easier but when you lay next to me I can let my eyes rest It’s not getting easier to stay It’s not getting easier It’s not getting easier to listen It’s not getting easier but when the thunder cover our ears I can hear what you’re saying to me I can hear what you’re saying here what you’re saying cover my ears

Human 05:35
HUMAN I am a hundred years old I am all children I have ages a thousand hairs yet so bald I have lived a hundred lifes yet I were never born I have wisdom yet I haven’t seen anything of this world I have been in a hundred countries none of them was home home is full of strangers and I’m a stranger to myself I have a hundred names none of them has been claimed I am Isabel I am no one at all

Mirrors 03:52
MIRRORS you thrive in your reflections inside them you hide hiding for the faces that will make you fall they can see you fortune they can see your flaws they are all of your faces and you know them all who are looking back at you it’s evil and it’s false glowing eyes and they are glowing the devil in disguise someone stands behind me someone hides inside looking out from the mirror and I know them all I know them all someone stands behind me someone hides inside looking out from the mirror and I have known them all I have known them all and I have known them all

TURN OFF THE LIGHTS I burned it down I felt the warmth I felt the warmth within I buried it down to keep it to myself you came out of the woods on a golden chair tamed by the elders me on a broken horse riding deliriously through the nights turn off the lights turn off the lights and ride with me tonight a heartbeat for each night we won gave me a thousand drums to play while the rhythms rose I held on to your love but with my naked back facing away ready to take the bullet afraid to trust real love I became afraid of losing who came out of the woods turn off the lights turn off the lights and ride with me tonight

Eld 05:26
ELD du ska brinna tusen eldar innan du brinner ut du ska stirra in i mörkret, stirra tills du ser ljus och alla sorters kärlek ska rinna genom ditt blod och alla vatten du badat i ska samlas i din flod you shall burn a thousand fires before you turn to dust you shall look into the dark, until you see it burst and all the different kinds of love shall run through your blood and all the waters you ever swam, in the end, shall become one burn burn burn for me live live live for me you were born born born to become life life life is one

Flee 05:32
FLEE flee, flee them eyes bound heart is glowing flee, flee the ground a hole is growing run, run in violet nights I’ve shuddered him, him, his rivers are overflowing voice, a voice that lingers voice, one voice, so sweet so bitter flee, flee, he’s captivating my rhythm him, him, his rivers are overflowing no, I will not love him no, I will not no, I will not love him no, I will not

Light 06:11
LIGHT light, there is light everywhere I turn I see you, I see how you glow light, I feel how you burn life, there is life in all of their souls you are in the wind you are in the dark you are in the light you are in my blood light, they're lighting their golden fires surrounding us, with their light darkness, their lightness is there souls, in every color speaks, communicates the circle of light
