"Cosy Prisons" as written by and Morten/furuholmen Harket....
Take a moment if you dare
Catch yourself a breath of air
There's another life out there
And you should try it

Dead ends hide on every street
Look before you place your feet
Cracks and fissures keep the beat
And you're inside it

Every thought you never dared to think
Every mood you always knew would sink
Every line you spoke out loud in a jest
All the time you took to be your best
Soon forgotten

The sun must never touch your skin
It could expose the dark within
You're paranoid about the paranoia

And panic hits without a sign
You worry about it all the time
Every perfect moment is a hidden warning

Cause everything makes your pretty head spin
And nagging thoughts are starting to sink in
With everything this way it's better to forget
Than end up in a place with something to regret

Your transatlantic shopping spree
Your health forever guarantees
Organic -bio-life's a breeze in cosy prisons

But hiding out in a salad bar
Isn't gonna get you far
and bottled wine is vinegar tomorrow

Everything around here makes your pretty head spin
Its piling up high and you're back where you begin
Moments you have tried so hard to forget
Are promising to 've been the best one's yet

Every time you shut your eyes it appears
Every time you trace your steps back here
None of your convictions have the same old ring
No doubt you found a place for everything
In cosy prisons

So if you're careful
You won't get hurt
But if your careful all the time
Then what's it worth?

    General CommentI ABSOLUTELY love this song! It's definately one of my favorite A-Ha songs!

    I think it's just saying that people get stuck in these comfort zones that they won't get out of because they're scared or what not and basically it doesn't make life any easier, it just stops you from experiencing life as it should be.
