End Of Time

By Weers, Egtved and Højgård

There I was tonight, watching the strong light
Seeing what I have just done?

It is cold tonight, my heart is on its turn
To it’s final stroke in time

Beating up, fucking up, and every single stroke is lost
But who cares, the sun the sun the sun goes up tomorrow

The sun the sun the sun keeps going down, oh oh
Take my mind away, bring it back another day

What was in your wits?
At the end of time
Got those bloody fits
At the end of time
Tension get’s to you
At the end of time
Consciousness get’s to you
At the end of time
End of time

Waking up, throwing up, has it really just begun? Who will care?
To stop, to stop will I flash back tomorrow?

I did what I just did I’m going down, oh no
Take my mind away

Bring it back another day
After all you know
At the end of time
Down here I remain
At the end of time
Let me pass away
At the end of time
Got nowhere else to go
Just the end of time
End of time
End of time

There I was tonight, watching the strong light
Seeing what I have just done?

It is cold tonight, my heart is on its turn
Now I’ll go away, won’t return another day

After all you know
At the end of time
Down here I remain
At the end of time
Let me pass away
At the end of time
Got nowhere else to go
Just the end of time

Down here I lie
After all you know
At the end of time
Down here I remain
Please, let me die
Let me pass away
At the end of time
End of time
Oh yeah, oh yeah

 

Killing Fields

By Weers, Egtved and Højgård

Muddy day out there
On those killing fields
Cambodians facing death
And ever lasting fear

In a country turned to year zero
Where are the voices for its survival?

Pol Pot you bastard
Four years reign of terror
All killed without a bloody reason

Fear of a nightmare takes them on
They don’t sleep they just keep going on
Stop for a minute then you’re done
They cross the fields and then most of them are gone

Still crying

Three nights in a row babe you’ve been running for your life
Your heart is bursting and there is no shed of light
Faces of death haunting you but all you see is empty eyes
Striving to survive but the killing fields will always rise

When someone’s taken they’re never released
Brutally put to death with no grief
Staring at their captors eyes fading into final sleep
The human costs of revolutions are horrific indeed.

Still crying

Three nights in a row babe you’ve been running for your life
Your heart is bursting and there is no shed of light
Faces of death haunting you but all you see is empty eyes
Striving to survive but the killing fields will always rise

Go!

Still crying

Three nights in a row babe you’ve been running for your life
Your heart is bursting and there is no shed of light
Faces of death haunting you but all you see is empty eyes
Striving to survive but the killing fields will always rise

 

Everybody Likes To Wonder

By Weers, Egtved and Højgård

Every once in a while when you came along
I was praying for Love
Every time you came along I was praying for love
Oh jump up and get around
Ohoh mmmh yeah

Don’t know but you’re feeling sound
Not looking bad got to ask you for more
You don’t know but I’ve been around
Got that feel inside – I got to hit
wooohoh, wooohoh, jump up and get around
wooohoh,  jump up and get around

Everybody likes to wonder
Everybody loves to smile
You and I could creep down under
Nobody should sleep alone

Rock on – come on
Let me sing for you
Rock on – uhh yeah

Nod on – feel it
Jump up and get around
Nod on – feel it
Jump up and get around

Solo

Everybody likes to wonder
Everybody loves to smile
You and I could creep down under
Nobody should sleep alone

Oh, oh, yeah

Find my way to you
I need love with you
I need sense in you
I wanna fly

Everybody likes to wonder
Everybody loves to smile

 

I’m Losing You

By Weers, Egtved and Højgård

Can’t wait to go to sleep again
Run into my dreams and let go
I hope to see you my precious
I will jump over trees
I will fly over fields
I shall take your hand
And promise you the world
For the sensation to kiss your lips

I’m loosing you
Your last goodbye
I’m loosing you
Your last goodbye
I’m loosing
Your last goodbye
No tears run dry
In silence I cry
My view becomes blurred
I’m losing you out of my dream

And we shall never surrender
Dreams are free and not for sale
But believe in our dream – come true

 

I Might Beat It

By Weers, Egtved and Højgård

Mmmmh, yeah
Mmmh believe
And ask yourself how you feel today
The love
It seems easy, the whole thing
We don’t have to fear
No danger of any kind that makes our breed, grumble
Come awaken all you fool’s
Ghosts don’t go away

Mmmh, I might beat it
I might beat it
Just imagine – love undisturbed – scenes had no fear
Dangerous obsessions really wouldn’t attract me

I assume you experienced pain
The sorrow in life makes strong bounding
Won’t you come back
On your track
Self-defence
When low you might believe there’s still some kind of
protection, enough to keep those
ghosts away

Mmmh, I might beat it
I might beat it
Just imagine – love undisturbed – scenes had no fear
Dangerous obsessions really wouldn’t attract me

Mmmmh to be
Oh yeah
Just to be
Let it go
Right to hell
Down the drain
With our brain
It’s the mind
Pushing, pushing hard
Ah, to keep sane
Pushing hard

But you come back
Onto track
By yourself – rock on
Self-defence
Come on

Mmmmh yeah
Mmmh believe
And ask yourself about sanity
Insanity
It is clearly, the same thing
A little bit mad
And loosing our intellect can make our breed, crumble
Come awaken all you fools
Ghosts don’t go away

Mmmh, I might beat it
I might beat it
Just imagine – love undisturbed – scenes had no fear
Dangerous obsessions really wouldn’t attract me

 

Snapshot

By Weers, Egtved and Højgård

All right let me hear you scream
You’re so mighty
But I can’t hear you

Second chance, second thought everybody
Snapshot, a sorry life
Time has come to run out into danger
Best he can do is fight oh yeah
He was lonely
Uuh yeah I was there

Now for real there’s nowhere to turn,
It’s his call, show them all
This is for real, nowhere to turn, it’s his call, show them all

Turn away, cover up everybody
Snapshot, a coward’s life
Time has come to believe in his purpose
All he’s got left is fight oh yeah
He was lonely
Uuh yeah I was there

Now for real there’s nowhere to turn,
It’s his call, show them all
This is for real, nowhere to turn, it’s his call, show them all

Now for real there’s nowhere to turn,
It’s his call, show them all
This is for real, nowhere to turn, it’s his call, show them all

 

Pain In Our Modern World (It’s Not Fair intro)

By Weers, Egtved and Højgård

It’s not fair!
A meaning that has such wide definition
And is so widely misunderstood
In our modern world it’s disgustingly painful in its example

I was injured when I came home from battle today
Everything seemed to fade away, fail on large scale
My family will suffer
And I will be the one, the only one to blame
And all I did was come late to work for the third time

I fought for my life today
Watching telly and then when the film started my thoughts all came alive
Diving into myself. Constantly fighting instinct behaviour to our modern world of life that is

It just came to me, life that is
Living in a cloud of misunderstanding are we, life that is
Mountains of luck spilling and drowning, oh you know what I mean

Life to live
Yeah
Is it?
All right then

 

It’s Not Fair

By Weers, Egtved and Højgård

Join the show!

It’s not fair
That you told me
Of those sins you committed in greed
Not fair
That you blame me
For dragging you out in the rain

Mind me, spare me and comprehend
Your grief downs me, be real
Failing the truth in that jungle you live in
Bleeding blameless on the ground
And now they’re dead

It’s not fair
That you made it
Civilians were killed once again
Not fair
To our conscience
That obvious crime is excused

Mind me, spare me and comprehend!
Your grief downs me, be real
Failing the truth in that jungle you live in
Bleeding blameless on the ground
And now they’re dead

It’s not fair
Just when it felt safe, your sword would strike with all despair
It’s not fair
And when it felt safe, your sword would strike with all despair

Don’t you mean it what I say
Not fair
And you know that I meant it was right in my way to die

Don’t tell me you’re suffering
I’ll be there at all
It’s not fair
Can you hear me
It’s the last time I will die for you
Don’t tell me you’re suffering

It’s not fair
That you told me
Of those sins you committed in greed
Not fair
That you blame me
For dragging you out in the rain

Not fair
That you made it
Civilians were killed once again
Not fair
To our conscience
That obvious crime is excused

 

Trafalgar Square

By Weers, Egtved and Højgård

It’s not a hit and run but a lot of fun
Wanna party round Trafalgar square until it’s dawn
Red Bull, Tequila, Caipirinha
Waiting for that big clock to strike midnight in London

You better get ready
For a long night out
New Years night clubbing
Let’s shout
You better keep steady
Not to drop out
London head-banging’
Let’s shout

Crowds of different people hanging out
The atmosphere we’ve all been waiting for without doubt
London city lights turn us on and on
Waiting for that big clock to strike midnight in London

You better get ready
For a long night out
New Year’s night clubbing
Let’s shout
You better keep steady
Not to drop out
London head-banging
Let’s shout

God damn late down Marquee’s club
There used to be such a lot of rock and all that stuff
The underground is calling to get absolutely soaking wet
Waiting for that big clock to strike midnight in London

You better get ready
For a long night out
New Year’s night clubbing
Let’s shout
You better keep steady
Not to drop out
London head-banging
Let’s shout
Let’s shout

 

Forgive Yourself

By Weers, Egtved and Højgård

Hello my friend, is there anything I can do
You’re standing there like you do
And you’re so happy doing what you do
Being there for others
Like it’s the energy you need for – living.
Your mind seems free, ghosts, and capacity for living
It seems as if no fear, danger, obsession of any kind has rocked your life but I’m wrong!
You say to give, takes
And to feel you must experience pain.
The sorrow in life makes strong bounding
And when you meet the new
And at some point of you, you seek the weak for forgiveness
And you can never…

…forgive yourself my friend
And you only end
You’ve got to be all the same
And you
Oh yeah
Giving it all my day
Giving it all that had to, for my brain oh
Getting it down all night
Getting it as disease
Getting oh mh yeah down down down down yeah, haha

You know me
You don’t know my name
You got me all the time
You got me
You got everything you asked for
Every time
Oh yeah
You know I’m standing still
Oh yeah
I’m standing still
Cause you’re freaking me out babe
Come on hey, hey
Don’t know
Hey hey
Rolling home
Hey hey
Everytime you’re coming
Everytime you’re leaving me
I mean you!

Hello my friend, is there anything I can do
You’re standing there all alone, all alone

Everything I felt for
You disarmed me
Everything I worked for
You wanted to aaah
Everything that worked for you
Everytime I’d be there
It just goes all away down town
Yeah!

 

There Is A Name I’m Missing

By Weers, Egtved and Højgård

I don’t even love ya
I don’t even touch ya
And I don’t truly believe in your eyes
Don’t let evil love ya
But let evil dress ya
Need the love you come with

My name is Wonder
I work my brain like no other
You hit my head and your life will feel a shame
Never had no mother
Cannot sense to suffer
And I need no silly, prayers

I don’t need to come back now
To transmit my love
Dress up for love its true now
I feel love

There is a name I’m missing
Scratched in my wall
There is a world I’m missing
Can’t you believe it’s true

Now my name became Wonder
Wouldn’t choose a favourite colour
I didn’t feel love become loud what a shame

You’re my love
You’re my heart
You feel bad
I love you

I don’t need to come back now
I don’t feel no love
I’ll be back any time now
I feel love

There is a name I’m missing
Scratched in my wall
There is a world I’m missing
Can’t you believe it’s true

There is a name I’m missing
Scratched in my wall

Babe
Don’t ever run away, you know I love you
Don’t ever run away, you know I feel you
Babe
Run away
Don’t run away
Don’t run away
