Album: Jag Är Inte Rädd För Mörkret
Lyrics: Joakim Berg
Music: Kent


All of my life I have heard a song
A lullaby you sang once
All of my life I relied on myself
But now I need your help
All of my life I have heard a song
A song my mother sang once
All of my life I have tried to think for myself
But I come no further without your help

All my thoughts revolve around sick things

Those dreams we dreamed came from the borderland beyond the barbed wire
Where trenches were dug when someone else built the country when we slept
Now we are awake but we do not recognize us
They have demolished our streets, burned down the playgrounds
Where we hung out as children
Yet how far one has come
There is always further remaining

There was a light that never goes out
In the songs from my childhood
All of my life I trusted in my luck
But this I can't wriggle myself out of

All of our ideals come from a rosy 80s

So now we think of traveling, White Nights, Ian Curtis
Are you Michael Jackson or Michael Bolton
Are you Pepsi, do you have Kola
Are you profitable in your nakedness, your bruises and calluses
You have goose bumps because you freeze, is this the best life had to offer?
Yet how far one has come
There is always further remaining

All my thoughts revolve around expensive things

Oh baby where have you been
We have already lit the grill
We have waited here in the rain for something which is not happening
And which will never happen
It's just a vague feeling
That something has been lost
That we wasted our best time on envy
Further we have not come

The 999 things I would never do
They weighed up to 999 worse things I have done
The 999 things I would never do
They weighed up to 999 worse things I have already done
