"Animal Arithmetic" as written by and Jon Thor Birgisson....
Wake up, comb my hair
Making food disappear
Riding bikes, making out
Elephants run you down

You and I run away, blushing cheeks
Howling wolves, colourful fireworks

Every time, everyone, everything's full of life
Everyday, everywhere, people are so alive

We should all be (Oh Oh Oh) alive!
We should all be (Oh Oh Oh) alive!

Horfandi, þegjandi, tala við, skríðandi
Dreymandi, strjúka af, koma við ekki má
Mála á líkama, spilað á renglandi
Hlaupandi! Leikandi!

Get it on, let it out, fucking and spúandi
Get it on, let it out, fucking and kæfandi

We should all be (Oh Oh Oh) alive!
Exist all in love, in life!
We should all be (Oh Oh Oh) alive!
Let's not stop, let's grow and live!

I see you colourful, I see you in the trees
I see you spiritful, you're in the breeze
I see it in your hands, tree fingers draw a beam
I see you in the sand, roll down the stream

I see you in the trees, I see you colourful
I see you in the breeze, you're spiritful
Tree fingers draw a beam, I see it in your hands
You're rolling down the stream, you're in the sand

I see you colourful, I see you in the trees
I see you spiritful, You're in the breeze
I see it in your hands, tree fingers draw a beam
I see you in the sand, roll down the stream

I see you in the trees, I see you colourful
I see you in the breeze, you're spiritful
Tree fingers draw a beam, I see it in your hands
You're rolling down the stream, you're in the sand

I see you colourful, I see you in the trees
I see you spiritful, you're in the breeze
I see it in your hands, tree fingers draw a beam
I see you in the sand, roll down the stream

    General CommentThe world is full of life. Life is a God-given blessing. Every blessing has a big meaning. A big meaning creates a strong impact on your values.

    General Comment"Get it on, get it on
    Fuck it, let's go and live
    Get it on, bring it on
    Fuck it, break out and be"

    Wrong. He's singing in Icelandic during this part.

    General CommentEnglish Translation:

    Listening, silent, speak to, creeping
    Dreaming, wipe off, mustn't touch
    Paint the body, played on lankingly
    Running! Playing!

    Get it on, get it on, fucking on, erupting
    Get it on, bring it on, fucking on, chocking

    General CommentAfter a lot of listens to the album I have to say this won out as my fav track. It's just so... alive! XD It's got so much energy and is so lovely at the same time. If only anyone could agree on the lyrics. Kurse him for not just telling us. Icelandic bastard.
