"Ochrasy" as written by Bjorn Hans-erik Dixgard and Gustaf Noren....
I feel dizzy, all laid back and I'm too blind to see
What's going on outside my lonely window
I'm turning on the TV screen, watching news for a while
Then I fall back to sleep again

And I'm dreaming 'bout times, times that are gone
Times when I lived alone in my own land called Ochrasy
That place was everything to me, the world I made it up, you see
It's all there in my fantasy and I believe it

I'm waking up again and see that war on screen again
And it makes me want to go and hide
This world is full of misery, the anger is too big to see
That's why I had to dream this dream

I was dreaming 'bout times, times that are gone
Times when I lived alone in my own land called Ochrasy
That place was everything to me, the world I made it up, you see
It's all there in my fantasy and I believe it

Now they come again, all these soldiers without shame
Dressed in black and equipped with fire
They can stop our happy days and put us in the graves
But never reach the Ochrasy

I was dreaming 'bout times, times that are gone
Times when I lived alone in my own land called Ochrasy
Oh that place was everything to me, the world I made it up, you see
It's all there in my fantasy and I believe it

I'm waking up again and see that war on screen again
And it makes me want to go and hide
This world is full of misery, the anger is too big to see
That's why I had to dream this dream

    General CommentThis song is wuite good, but not my favourite of MD...
    Gustaf sings this song and it´s about his fantasy world in wich he lives during the tours...
    He compares this land with "Astrid Lindgrens, Nangijala"

    General CommentI read somewhere that Ochrasy was a word Gustaf made up and it's the time between getting home from a night of partying and waking up.

    General Commentfirst of all, it's bjoern who sings that song, sorry, but I just had to say it ;)
    it's my favourite song of the new album and everytime I feel stressed or exhausted, I'm dreaming about my personal ochrasy and how I enjoy it there...I just think that it's fabulous...

    General CommentYou are right, kaulquappe, it´s björn who sings it^^ Sorry, my mistake. it´s just a bit confusing because it´s "gustaf´s ochrasy" but Björn sings that song^^

    General CommentNo. Björn made the word Ochrasy up, just like Mando Diao.

    General Commentin my opinion, lyrics talk about when you are tired and fed up with the world around you (wars, soldiers, misery, tv) so, to forget your problems, you imagine that you are in another world, a world you know isn't real and it's only inside your head but which helps you to bear your hardest days.
    when bjorn sings this, he's desperate, angry or just feels "dizzy" But suddenly remembers that, when he was younger and felt like that, he used to turn to that world in his mind called ochrasy.

    General Commentright, or it could be about living in a happy fantas world as a child and then being disillusioned as an adult with the problems of the real world., hence the " was dreaming 'bout times, times that are gone" bit.

    or this song is just about being a hippie. seeing as the music video is a bunch of hippie-esque things.

    General CommentI like the last bit. Imagine having a crazy night out and waking up to the news in the morning, and we all know the news is never good news. it's like the hangover is more than just alcohol induced, you leave a world of carefree fantasy behind along with your drunkenness, only to wake up hungover and in the real depressing world. I'm not saying the song is about alcohol, but I suppose Ochrasy would be similar to the feeling alcohol gives people.

    General Commentlove this song, it's so calming.. one correction though

    i think it's: "That place was everything to me, The WORD I made it up you see", instead of "world"
