"Viðrar Vel Til Loftárása" as written by and Agust Aevar Gunnarsson Jon Thor Birgisson....
Ég Læt Mig Líða Áfram
Í Gegnum Hausinn
Hugsa Hálfa Leið
Afturábak
Sé Sjálfan Mig Syngja Fagnaðarerindið
Sem Við Sömdum Saman

Við Áttum Okkur Draum
Áttum Allt
Við Riðum Heimsendi
Við Riðum Leitandi
Klifruðum Skýjakljúfa
Sem Síðar Sprungu Upp

Friðurinn Úti
Ég Lek Jafnvægi
Dett Niður
Alger Þögn
Ekkert Svar
En Það Besta Sem Guð Hefur Skapað
Er Nýr Dagur

    General CommentEver see the video for this? It might just be my favourite video of all time.

    General CommentPitchforkmedia.com described this album as "soul-crushingly beautiful." I think this song is the perfect example of that. Without a doubt my favorite track off Agaetis Byrjun. It gives me shivers every single time I hear it.

    At first I was shaken by the ending, but clearly that's intentional. It's as if you've been lifted up and completely disoriented. As you grasp at the air, trying to find the beat again (for the drums have receeded into the background), you're dropped. The song is over.

    Music this stunning is so rare! I just can't say enough good things about this band.

    General Commenti totally love the ending........been trying to find a way to reproduce that kind of discord in my music but it just ends up like a mess. i don't think the lyrics matter all that much, the beaty and sould of the music transcends language barriers

    General CommentThat song quite simply amazed me. The music takes over you, transports you. The best combination of piano and strings I can remember in any song, and Jonsi's voice adds a sense of harmony. But then, you find yourself trapped in a cold storm that just seems to get bigger and bigger, and there it ends, in a huge cataclysm. Almost made me crazy... and I felt disturbed and almost cried. Very overwhelming. The video clip was good too, although it created a big controversy about homosexuality and media ethics when it was first released. I found the video to be excellent.

    General CommentMode000, pull your homophobic head out of your homophobic and ignorant ass. this music is poetry beyond what this earth seems possible, the music video brings me to tears everytime I see it. The song it great enough without the visual aide, I go back and fourth.

    General CommentENGLISH TRANSLATION

    Good Weather For Airstrikes

    I Slide Myself Forward
    Through My Head
    I Think Half Way
    Backwards
    See Myself Sing The Anthem
    That We Wrote Together
    We Had A Dream
    We Had Everything
    We Rode To The End Of The World
    We Rode Searching
    Climbed Skyscrapers
    That Later Exploded
    The Peace Was Out
    I Leak Balance
    Fall Down
    Total Silence
    No Answer
    But The Best Thing God Has Created
    Is A New Day

    General CommentI find it impossible to decide which track on Ågaetis Byrjun is the best, but this is certainly a highlight. Excellent video, too.

    General CommentPerfection. The music video is so cataclysmic, it's amazing. One of those songs where the music fits with the video. Like a movie giving justice to the book.

    General CommentThe video is absolutely incredible. I was so shaken up by the end of it, that I was nearly in tears.

    My favorite song on the album too.
