"Dead Passengers 4:22" as written by and Sondre Lerche Vaular....
When there is light from up above
Then there will come a sacred dove
To the basement, to the basement

When there is fear you won't have to cry
Napkins are here, they'll dry your eyes
And blind them, and blind them

They will come to your home
When they are here
Faces down

When there is greed taking control
Moving the bricks and starving the older people
Oh, people

If you seek shelter from your past
They'll come to point their fingers where you cast your shadow
Cast your shadow

They will come to your home
When they are here
Faces down

But you
Have been fooled
You knew the rules
By heart
There is
No guarantee
Against infamy
Out there

When there is trouble on the road
Dead passengers will guide you home
They will lead you
If they can just feed you

They will come to your home
When they are here
Faces down

    General Commenti saw him talk about it, and he said that it was from a newspaper in norway he was reading. the story was about these carjacking murderers who townspeople were trying to defend, saying that they were mere "cold blooded murderers" and no one should bother about them, disregarding that they themselves could be killed by them.

    General CommentWow. This used to be my favorite song because I felt like it had a positve, uplifting sound, but upon listening to it again VERRRRRRRRRRRRY closely and muting out Sondre to hear the background music only, I've come to realize the cryptic nature of this song! It's about death; that is undeniable...i'm just not 100% certain how. I feel like it's about the interaction between a person and the "other worldly" (ie: ghosts)...listen to the "shrieks" in the background if you don't believe me!!!!

    Very strange, nonetheless, but still one of my favorites.
