"Who's Laughing Now?" as written by and Erik Hans/farm Ohlsson....
Delighted and laughed upon
The critics had their fun
But he don't mind
And will look different when he's done

A too controversial lie
And all the kids do understand
What he's about in this moderated land

But who's laughing now
And who's looking blank
Yeah who's laughing now
All the way to the bank
Who's laughing now
And who went up in rank
Yeah who's laughing now
All the way to the bank

Too old, too blind to see
The magic in this man
The jealous kind
Will never be a fan

And he never doubted
In himself for what he can
For good and worse
He always stuck to his own plan

But who's laughing now
And who's looking blank
Yeah who's laughing now
All the way to the bank
Who's laughing now
And who went up in rank
Yeah who's laughing now
All the way to the bank

He's always been against the grain
I give him credit for staying sane
It takes a lot to go that route
He fought his own way out

Fine inspiration and a cure
For anyone who's been ignored
Only for them he'll take a bow

But who's laughing now
And who's looking blank
Yeah who's laughing now
All the way to the bank
Who's laughing now
And who went up in rank
Yeah who's laughing now
All the way to the bank

Looks who's laughing now.

    General Commentreally? i really liked it. especially this song.

    i think its about someone who no-one beleived in and was always getting mocked for doing things diferent. every one doubted him cos he did things unorthadox/differently but now hes made it. so Whos laughing now?

    General CommentHmhm, I got goosebumps while thinking this song could be talking about Jexus.

    The Critics had their fun
    he don't mind and will look different when he's done
    The Magic in this man
    i give him credit for staying sane
    it takes a lot to go that route
    Fine inspiration and a cure

    They could be talking about him.

    General Commenti kinda believe this song is about nikola. For one reason really. Millencolin always mentions references to previous songs, and in duckpond he talks about how he feels kinda jealous and envious of the people moving on and living there lives. at the end of the song he says "I'm too weak I'm down on my knees. Too feeble for something new. Feels like there's nothing I can do.
    Keep on LAUGHING 'bout me, keep on doing your own,
    But someday I will be that one. Be that one." now if you think about it millencolin wasn't that big and successful and they've grown into a much more successful and known about band. so maybe now hes tryin to say "i did it my way and still made it, and now im the one laughing." either way this one of the best songs on the album!!!!

    General CommentThis ones about Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Nikola's a big fan of him and has written a lot about him throughout the years. Like this song, Pepper and My Name Is Golden. :)

    General CommentI kinda think this song is about the band pulling through doubts and criticism...and finally making money and earning respect they should have always had. Maybe a previous record label laughed at their EP or something, and he wrote this song about them overcoming and "laughing all the way to the bank" to cash in their fat checks. :D
    i like it, this song is a confidence booster, almost.
