"Failure" as written by Eirik Glambek Boe and Erlend Otre Oeye....
Using the Guardian as a shield,
To cover my thighs against the rain,
I do not mind about my hair.
Your jacket may be waterproof,
But I know the moment you get home
You're gonna get your trousers changed.
Failure is always the best way to learn,
Retracing your steps until you know,
Have no fear your wounds will heal.
I wish I could travel overground

To where all you hear is water sounds,
Lush as the wind upon a tree.
I wish I could travel overground
To where all you hear is water sounds,
To capture and keep inside of me.
Failure is always the best way to lean,
Retracing your steps until you know,
Have no fear your wounds will heal.

    General Commentthis is fantastic because i failed my second ochem test, found out about it today and have been listening to this song nonstop. makes me feel better to know that there are others who share my pain even though KoC didn't write the song about that.
