"Whoracle" as written by and Jesper Claes Haakan/gelotte Stroemblad....
I often dream of huge numb buildings
Jet-black sinister architecture
Being installed when nobody sees
Their appearance so sudden
That few would take notice

And when I wake up
I imagine being crushed by one
Imagining its weight its silence
And the absence of excuses for a havoced life
And the privilege of a 22-kilometre tombstone

Jotun

A body of black
That carried no reflection
Defying its own room
Un-earthly eggs of decreation

There would be colonies
Mushroom-scattered forever out of context
Rising spores from a dying world
To pollute to chase away what's left

Sun-white pulverised desert stone
And serpentine lizard mouths
Pales away the pyramids
Rewriting 4500 years of history
Raping the statue of liberty
Outplays the acropolis
Inverting the fjords
Invades the n why skyline to
Dream its own existence in one single final word

Jotun

Can we identify them
As the flint buried in our reptile skulls
Or the time-bomb coded in our dna

    the more we'll create,
    the more we'll loose

    General CommentThis song is purely instrumental, but whenever i listen to it, i get the feeling its telling me of, lets say, dark messiah, the rising of damnation, and humanity's self-induced destruction. Or in less words, a hopeless world covered in flames.

    My OpinionFor some reason, this album makes me think of an advanced form of humans that depend on their technology for everything. Then, an alien race (possibly a Jester Race?) comes to Earth because their planet is dying (which connects The Jester Race and Whoracle). But, they too are dependent on their technology. There is a war where technology eventually breaks down, so they morph into primal mode. Then, they both use all they can to take the land which leads to them killing themselves.

    Possibly Colony connects also. There's plenty of songs about rebuilding civilization. So, there's a possibility that some (unnamed) characters have survived and continued in a post-apocalyptic world. And, what about the song Swim? Could that be connected too?

    General Commentgreat song...
    cause it is on whoracle and even called whoracle i think this is the oracle speaking..
    cause it is the end of the album i think she is speaking about how we should repair or wounded world and how we should move on..
    to bad we cannot understand her language of pure singing.. cause we lost our own purity

    General CommentEverytime I listen to this song I think about hunting something down... like chasing a deer with a spear or some primal caveman like action of the sorts. Also a great song to bang to. :D

    General CommentI agree with Azraw. The more you have, the more you lose.

    But i also get the whole desolate "The worlds over, everythings baren and empty" vibe at the same time.


    This song is deep for how simple it is...
