"Dauðalogn" as written by and Jon Thor Birgisson Orri Pall Dyrason....
Heimur hljóðlátur
Hreyfist ei hár lað í
Hljómar grafarþögn
Enginn vaknaður
Enginn taktur hraður
Algert dauðalogn

Enn á eðal tél
Lýðar gætúr birta von
Gegnum mél sálum
Allt toginá alða

Við áttan er greið
Ferðamönnum og mér
Fyllir fjallasal
Þetta bergmálar
Bergmálar í höfðum
Úti dauðalogn

Enn á eðal tél
Lýðar gætúr birta von
Gegnum sjá lögum er
Nú signúr vast að unðum til von
Mörguni vætur
Allt síð lognára stað
Og múkk árast í
Og múkk brjótum í dauðalogn

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful. When the angelic operatic voice comes in, I get goose bumps. It's so moving.

    The translated lyrics are pretty straightforward. The narrator is alone, sitting just taking in the beauty of nature and the Earth, enjoying peace. I'm not sure what the morning brings to change it, but the operatic voice makes me think of the wonder of the morning sun bringing a new day.

    TranslationThe world very silent
    The air does not move
    Sound of grave silence
    There is no one awake
    There is no rapid tempo
    Total dead calm

    Inwards I think
    Embers light a bonfire
    One with myself
    Breathe in breathe out

    The expanse is open
    For travellers and I
    Fill the mountain range
    Cliffs echo
    Echo in our heads
    Outside it's dead calm

    Inwards I think
    Embers light a bonfire
    One with myself
    Now I sit on firm ground
    The morning arrives
    With its calm against the storm
    And now the surfaces ripple
    And now we break the dead calm.
