"Modern Drummer" as written by and Frode Flatland Oeyvind Solheim....
Don't be shy, I dig your style
you can play it all and you are always tight
hi! I feel that your fills are real
you fill up the void that we all have inside

so, please don't lose your flow

all those gadgets, please don't loose your soul
all those presets, please don't loose your rolls
all those feedbacks, please don't loose your flow
all those drum-mags, you will let them know

so, please don't lose your flow

clouds unite, as your drums grow loud
lightning strikes each time you play your flat 4/5, 5/9
hi! I bet that you can play a set
with both your hands tied tightly behind your arched back.

    Song MeaningPretty obvious from the lyrics that the dude is enthralled with a drummer. I prefer to take the lyrics on a metaphorical level and apply it in more general terms. Song is hot to death. Okay album. I'm not a fan of extended sections throughout songs and they tend to that a lot.
