Another day
The next page
Still in daze
Still in a dream
Out of the pipe
My lust for life
Comes and goes
From above
Demanding purity
Sobriety
Cursing me like a sledge
Hammering down at me
Out of the water-pipe
I suck my lust for life
And all my floating dreams
It seems
Up on the gallery
God shouting down at me
Something I can not hear

Tears falling from the sky
Words from a lullaby
Everything beautiful dies
For now, we're hanging in
Though we are blessed with sin
You make my tired heart sing

You can be a sunbeam
And shine for a while
For a while
You can laugh a lot
And bring out that smile

For now we're hanging in
Even though we're blessed with sin
You make my heart...
You make my tired heart sing

Tears falling from the sky...

I'm on a tender trip
Slowly I'm loosing grip
Madness is in the air I fear
Stay, you're my acid-queen
Stay on my faded team
Run through the corridor with me

    General CommentI've been trying to figure out waht the lyrics are that the growly voice sings after Vibeke's 2nd chorus. So far I have:
    Pain, it's gone (god?)
    Blood, my fear
    Ice Word Time
    Dream Tears Hopes
    I'm dead, Hate years
    Get me out of here!

    What does anyone else think? Obviously some lines dont make a lot of sense like this...

    General CommentSounds pretty accurate, that bit. It's most likely just one word, full stop. one word, full stop.

    Ice. Word. Time.

    Has some importance to the artist, thats about all that can be known.

    General CommentWhat does this mean:

    "Even though we're blessed with sin"

    ?

    General CommentBlessed with sin could mean ill judgement being placed on you from religious groups, but in this context I would imagine being "Blessed with Sin" is having the drug (sin) in your veins, and being happy for it (blessed).

    General CommentAccorded to me, "blessed with sin" would rather mean that humanity has been given sin by God, and somehow it is a blessing, because it goes along with the ability to chose the direction one wants to give to her life...
