"Green Grass of Tunnel" as written by Gunnar Oern Tynes, Kristin Anna Valtysdottir, Gyda Valtysdottir and Oervar Thoreyjarson Smarason....
Down from my ceiling
Drips great noise.
It drips on my head through a hole in the roof.

Behind these two hills here
There's a pool.

And when I'm swimming in
through a tunnel
I shut my eyes.

Inside their cabin I make sounds
In through the tubes I send this noise.

Behind these two hills here
fall asleep.
And when I flood in green grass of tunnel...
It floods back.

Down from my ceiling
drips great noise.

It drips on my head through a hole in the roof.

Behind these two hills here
there's a pool.
And when I'm swimming in
through a tunnel
I shut my eyes.

    General CommentTo me this song is about how the beauty of a natural environment can transport you out of yourself to an amazing, surreal place. I had an experience like that while listening to this song once... on a classic eastern Sierra weekend, after a beautiful day of hiking, my girlfriend and I drove the dirt back roads up above Mono Lake, towards Parker Lake, and eventually stopped the car at the edge of a vast sagebrush meadow with the towering mountains above to the west and eerie , desolate Mono Lake and the desert below to the east, and we opened the car doors and breathed in the clean air and listened to this song as the sunset colors in the sky melted seamlessly into dusk. With every chord played on the organ the sky seemed more vast and I felt more a part of it. I will never forget that moment as long as I live.

    General Commentthese are the correct lyrics.


    Down from my ceiling
    Drips great noise
    It drips on my head through a hole in the roof

    Behind these two hills here
    There's a pool

    And when I'm swimming in
    Through a tunnel
    I shut my eyes

    Inside the cabin I make sounds
    In through the tubes I send this noise

    Behind these two hills here
    Fall asleep
    And when I float in green grass of tunnel
    It flows back

    Down from my ceiling
    Drips great noise

    It drips on my head through a hole in the roof

    Behind these two hills here
    There's a pool
    And when I'm swimming in
    Through a tunnel....
    I shut my eyes.

    I shut my eyes
