"Circuit Breaker" as written by Svein Berge, Torbjorn Brundtland and Kate C. Havnevik....
What is that vitalizing sound?
Calling me
In my head
Repeatedly

What is that visionary sight?
Before my eyes
So prominent
So mesmerizing, turbulent

You've got a hold on me
Your ingenuity
Seems to be driving me down on my knees

The force you generate
You reinvigorate
Your body talks and overstates

Well, I'm already drawn
Close to the divine
Intoxicating images are rushing through my mind

Embodiment of sin
Has kindled me within
Sensations seems to multiply, they're building up inside

Cutting through the night
Radiating light
I've seen you move the crowd
I know what you're about

The stories I have heard
The talk about excess
I know what people say
But surely you impress

Charismatic pill
You elevated sun
Vanity and pride
Added into one

A universal force
An autonomic high
A thing I can't control
No matter how I try

What have you done to me?
This candid chemistry
Emotions running over me

And when you arch your back
Just with a stare like that
Well, it's natural to interact

I'm not holding back
Ready to commence
Caught up in your blizzard so confusing and intense

Synergy of two
Energy gone wild
See the stars align to spell your name out in the sky

Never seen a sight
So fascinating right
A symmetry between
Dirty and pristine

Calling out so loud
Beautiful and true
Mystery about
Everything you do

Charismatic drug
You elevated sun
Vanity and pride
Added into one

A universal force
An autonomic high
A thing I can't control
No matter how I try

This electricity
Injected into me
Emotions running over me

And when you're getting close
You touch my innermost
A feeling deep inside me knows

Wonders of delight
Cutting through the night
Know you've got it all
I can't do without

Burning in my veins
Ripping through my soul
I'll never be the same
A secret can't be told

Charismatic pill
You elevated sun
Vanity and pride
Added into one

A universal force
An autonomic high
A thing I can't control
No matter how I try

    General CommentI think this is about drugs and the obsession/addiction for them/it. There are to many references to drugly things (for example:Charismatic pill, An automatic high, Charismatic drug,Injected into me,Burning in my veins).
    The part:

    Cutting through the night
    Radiating light
    I've seen you move the crowd
    I know what you're about
    The stories I have heard
    The talk about excess
    I know what people say
    But surely you impress

    talks about the rave scene (maybe) where drugs like ecstacy and various others are prevelant. I really feel this is about drugs/raving, but the lady thing matches, i guess. But my opinion is drugs/party rave

    General CommentFor me this song was all about that kind of person that just instantly strikes a chord in you, motivates you, catches your thoughts...he's definitely thinking sexually...and seems to be having trouble merging those feelings with how fantastic she's making him feel - that "symmetry between dirty and pristine". He doesnt believe any of the stories he's heard because he knows they have a connection of some sort and she's inherently his match.

    I didn't even read the stripper/porn influence until now, and can kinda see that...but she seems more like one of those "life of the party" people...someone everyone is drawn to and mesmerized by.

    Either way - it's a badass song. Reminds me somewhat of the Pet Shop Boys in it's repetition.

    General CommentI always thought it was "sensations seem to multiply" not multiplay -? I think it would make much more sense like that.

    General Commentgreat song.. for me it's about this guy who's in love with some famous girl (i'm guessing pornostar) and she has these affects on him and they have an affair for some time and she asks him not to tell about it.

    General CommentAt first i thought the song was about ecstasy, but whootwhoot raised a valid point. I'm still on the Ecstasy track, perhaps because it's one of the greatest songs to get high to :)

    General CommentI thought "elevated sun" was "elevated sum", but that might just be my geekiness playing tricks on my ears

    General CommentTake some shrooms or some MDMA and it will all make sense.
