"Sheepdog" as written by Bjorn Hans-erik Dixgard and Gustaf Noren....
I aim at the first one who'll dare to stand still
Oh Lord, you're tension is making me ill
You've got no friends in your home, you'll got no family stone
You can't go Yeah Yeah Yeah
Yeah Yeah Yeah

Everyone, in every town, on every boat, on every trip, the multi-talanted strip,
Will gather 'round you with coke and pain
The trees, ain't no doubt about
The seeds, I had no thought about
No, Yeah Yeah Yeah

Don't know why I can't locate this feeling, that I would rather be with you
It makes no sense, your crying out loud, that I may love you
This stress is wasting my emotions that I would rather be with you
Don't let them closer to this secret
That I may love you

Take 'em outa west, take 'em outa height, take 'em on a sweet ride
Those little angels are numbered nine
The colored TV once shined on desolation 15
They've got it Yeah Yeah Yeah
Bust 'em in the light, bust 'em in the light, bust 'em in the daylight
They ain't worthy being named as thieves
One of those shorties said hi up to the abbot who died
The rebound, Yeah Yeah Yeah

Don't know why I can't locate this feeling, that I would rather be with you
It makes no sense, your crying out loud, that I may love you
This stress is wasting my emotions that I would rather be with you
Don't let them closer to this secret
That I may love you

Now hear the bluebird whistle hymns like "I would rather heal your wounds"
Now hear the dark gun punching out, that I may love you

    General Comment"Don’t know why I can’t locate this feeling, that I would rather be with you" is favourite bit.

    i think the lyrics are fairly apparent in their meaning...
    nevertheless i love the chorus and the ending when gustaf is yelling "yeah yeah yeah"... it gets stuck in my head for days.

    General CommentIt looks like it's about a guy who is embarassed to love someone. He gets defensive to anyone who asks him about it. Maybe the person he is in love with is a runaway, encountering trouble wherever she goes. Maybe she just comes from a bad family. Maybe the 'heal your wounds' part means that he used to love someone but can't let go.

    General CommentThe last verses about busting someone in the daylight, someone, who ain’t worthy being named as thieves and
    "One of those shorties said hi up to the abbot who died "
    sounds scary. It doesnt make much sense to me when compared to the rest. Just maybe, if the girl was a sort of criminal or so...however the songs fabulous.

    General Comment"I remember the riff is written while walking from the bus stop to school. The whole song is inspired by two Sly Stone songs. The riff is from the baseline of "If you want me to stay" and the vers and yeah yeah yeah is from "Underdog", and of course the title. If you listen to this song you won't find any resembles. I just stole the vibe, not one note! The lyric starts of pretty hard, maybe even mean, but it's just so you'll get into the song as fast as possible. Later on it really turns into a sweet love song. Anyway, the song is a classic, a Mando top 3." - Gustaf Norén
