Is

Våkna om natta
Veit du kor ej e
E ej vekke, uavgjort, heime
Knørva i ei krå
Skru på lyset
Sjå mej fryse tankane til is
Her skal eg skøyte att og fram
Til rommet står i brann
 
Daga blir til år
Ej held i dej
Du held i mej
Så stille her vi står
Åleine
Vi veit det
Ej legg igjen det ej ber på
Ej held i dej
Du held i mej
Så stille her vi står
Åleine
Vi veit det
 
Ej går i gangen
Går i mej sjøl
Gøyme mej i skapet
No kan taket dette ned
Ej e hekta
Heile slekta
Bor i skjelettet
Ligge livet framfor mej
Eller ligge alt bak
Gi mej et svar
 
Daga blir til år
Ej held i dej
Du held i mej
Så stille her vi står
Åleine
Vi veit det
Ej legg igjen det ej ber på
Ej held i dej
Du held i mej
Så stille her vi står
Åleine
Vi veit det
 
Skru på lyset
Sjå mej fryse tankane til is
Her skal eg skøyte att og fram
Til rommet står i brann
 
Daga blir til år
Ej held i dej
Du held i mej
Så stille her vi står
Åleine
Vi veit det
Ej legg igjen det ej ber på
Ej held i dej
Du held i mej
Så stille her vi står
Åleine
Vi veit det

Ice

Awoke at night
Do you know where I am
Am I away, unresolved, at home
Crumpled in a corner
Turn the light on
Watch me freeze the thoughts to ice
Here I'll skate back and forth
Till the room stands aflame
 
Days turn into years
I hold onto you
You hold onto me
We stand here, so still
Alone
We know it
I leave behind what I carry
I hold onto you
You hold onto me
We stand here, so still
Alone
We know it
 
I go through the hallway
I go through myself
Hide myself in the cupboard
Now the roof may fall down
I'm hooked
The whole lineage
Lives in the skeleton
Does life lay before me
Or does everything lay behind
Give me an answer
 
Days turn into years
I hold onto you
You hold onto me
We stand here, so still
Alone
We know it
I leave behind what I carry
I hold onto you
You hold onto me
We stand here, so still
Alone
We know it
 
Turn the light on
Watch me freeze the thoughts to ice
Here I'll skate back and forth
Till the room stands aflame
 
Days turn into years
I hold onto you
You hold onto me
We stand here, so still
Alone
We know it
I leave behind what I carry
I hold onto you
You hold onto me
We stand here, so still
Alone
We know it
