Hundraelvan heter bussen,
för hundraelva timmar
tar det in till stan,
och nu med david
bredvid mig
vi bär lite grejer tillsammans
vi bär likadana kläder
bär hat och lantlig skam
vi döljer våran lukt

Höstljus
kastar bussens skugga
ner mjukt över vattnet
ner mjukt över sjön
och över färjemansleden
vi byter skog mot parker
vi byter våra vänner
till ingenting finns kvar
av valla och kastal

    TranslationThis is a rough translation, in case non-Swedes would like to know what the song is about:

    111 the bus is called
    Because it takes 111 hours
    To go to town
    And now with David
    Next to me
    We carry some stuff together
    We wear similar clothes
    Carry hate and rural shame
    We hide our smell

    Autumn light
    Casts the bus' shadow
    Softly down across the water
    Softly down across the lake
    And across Färjemansleden[1]
    We switch forests for parks
    We switch our friends
    Until nothing's left
    Of Valla and Kastal[2]

    [1] A street in the small town of Östersund, leading from suburban and rural areas into town. All songs on the album are named from streets of Östersund.

    [2] "Valla and Kastal" refers to Vallaskolan and Kastalskolan, the schools that David of the lyrics and Martin Abrahamsson, the writer, went to, respectively, before they moved into town to start highschool.
