"Cry Wolf" as written by Pal Waaktaar and Magne (mags) Furuholmen....
"Night I left the city,
I dreamt of a wolf"

He came from where the winds are cold
And truth is seen through keyholes
Strange longings never sleep
Now he's come where no hearts beat
Cry wolf
Time to worry
Cry wolf
Time to worry

You can start, but you cannot stop
You give in, but you can't give up
You can tell all your desperate jokes
To a world that puts
Love on hold
Cry wolf
Time to worry
Cry wolf
Time to worry now

The sunken-in eyes
And the pain in his cries
A shape in the dark
Cry wolf
Time to worry
Cry wolf
Time to worry now

    General CommentNow this one I know. Sadly I can't say how, I just remeber it being explained possibly by the band themselves (obviously not personally though :p), again I'm not sure of that fact either.
    Morten actually had a dream about this song. The opening line is exactly was it says on the tin. From there on it's what he dreamed about. Now I can't say for sure if the song and tune itself was in his dream or whether it was simply it's idea that came to him while in slumber. But either way. This is a very simple and easy song to understand that came to somebody whilst their mind was in a dormant state.
    When I think about it harder, I think we've all had musical dreams at one time or another, and the chorus of the song (Cry Wolf..Oooooooo!!) Is so in character with such strange things. A simple name of a story we've all heard and may have been frightened of as children, accompanied with a kind of Infantile Wolf-Howl aswell! 'Oooooo!!'.....Wonderfull :D
