"Kolnidur" as written by and Jon Thor Birgisson....
Gloandi augu, silfurnatt
Bloo alvoru, starir a
oour hundur er i vigamoo, i maga... mer

Kolniour gref, kvik sem dreg her
Kolniour svart, hvergi bjart ne

Kolniour og myrkur uti
En i mer, rikir oveour

Kolniour og dimmur lekur blek
eg reyni og brenni bata skel

Langt moldur og okkur
Myrkur gram, gram her
Dauoa hjar, linnurst, skrjafandi

Ein bry aour, eg ut von nei
Sjalfur blindur a, yfir nog
Og eg kjustigpao um...

(Duru ruru)

    General Commentid say this is the most "sigur ros" of all the songs, purely because of the orchestration that jonsi is using. would love to get the lyrics in english on this, but overall, you dont ever really need it.

    General CommentI totally agree with rockisgroovy. Normally, Jonsi's songs are so vibrant, but this one was kinda solemn and gloomy almost. But it's ok, I love that too. Jonsi's the best.

    General CommentI actually don't find this one as sad...
    To me it has a sense of pride.

    It's by far my favorite song of his.

    General Commentgoogle translation
    seems broken and some words didnt translate :/

    Glowing eyes, silver night
    Blood serious, staring at
    About dogs in vígamóð, stomach ... I

    Kolniður dig, dynamically drawn here
    Kolniður black, no light or

    Kolniður and dark outside
    But for me, there is storm

    Kolniður dark and dripping ink
    I try and burn boats shell

    Far and mold us
    Dark gram, gram here
    Death, heart, gland Bathurst, skrjáf Spirit

    One Bry before, I hope the negative
    Himself blind, of sufficient
    I kjústigpað about ...

    TranslationEnglish translation:

    Glowing eyes, silver night
    Dead serious, staring out
    Furious dog is in a killing mood, in my belly

    Endless dark buries, alive who makes it here
    Endless dark black, no light at all...

    Endless dark and darkness outside,
    But in me, a storm rages

    Endless dark and dark dripping ink,
    I try and burn boat shells,

    Far away mold and us
    Darkness looms, looms here
    Death is near, you stop rustling

    Singled out, no hope
    Myself blinded, more than enough
    And I submissively stepped out the door

    General CommentThe lyrics with proper spelling:

    Glóandi augu, silfurnátt
    Blóð alvöru, starir á
    Óður hundur er í vígamóð, í maga... mér

    Kolniður gref, kvik sem dreg hér
    Kolniður svart, kvergi bjart né

    Kolniður og myrkur úti
    En í mér, ríkir óveður

    Kolniður og dimmur lekur blek
    Ég reyni og brenni báta skel

    Langt móldur og okkur
    Myrkur grám, grám hér
    Dauða hjár, linnurst, skrjáfandi

    Ein brý áður, ég út von nei
    Sjálfur blindur á, yfir nóg
    Og ég kjústigpað um...
