"Hyperborea" as written by and Engstrom Winneke....
...Then came winter's bitterness
Numbness swept down from the east
The lost cold and hungry gently collapse
Into the endless fields of soft luminous white
She sulks from silver towers, she could save a life
He says he hates us and he's afraid to try
...And I know why
Trapped under winter's paw
I'm the animal
Frost invades and steals my breathing
Distant dimples glut with glitter
And comfortable
Outside the wolves are waiting
DON'T TRUST MAN
DON'T TRUST GIRL
DON'T TRUST ANIMAL
TRUST IN STEEL
Don't stop moving
Don't stop breathing
She sulks from silver towers, she could save a life
He says he hates us and has no words to try
And I know why
And I know why
AND I KNOW WHY
When nature calls
Eat the kill
When nature calls
TRUST IN STEEL
Don't stop moving
Don't stop breathing

    This song follows of after Lif, so you could play the album from.. "New York City" for example and it'd still be a complete album ;)

    General Commentnow i know hyperborea was a perfect land in greek mythology here many legends were born. but hyperborea is also a nation in the conan series by robert e. howard. i see more relation to that as far as trusting in your own steel above all else. very much a conan philosophy. does anyone else relate the song to this?

    General Comment"Hyperborea is a fleeting golden moment suspended between History
    and the unspeakable revelation of the Eschaton
    Hyperborea is a nexus of feelings, evolving ideas and shifting appearances.
    It is both an objective world and a dream within a hallucination.
    Hyperborea is Novelty itself." - Terence McKenna
