"You Make Me Like Charity" as written by Karin Elizabeth Dreijer Andersson and Olof Bjorn Dreijer....
You try to feel but you can't wake up
You try to touch but you can't wake up
You're holding eyes and you don't wake up
Increase the size and you don't wake up
I do it backwards but I don't wake up
Try to reverse but I don't wake up
I sit astride but I still don't wake up

More than a second
When reading the newspaper
I felt the war
I felt her exposed position
I saw myself in the picture
And I

I took a cab there to hold her
I took a plane there to feel what she felt
You make me like charity
Instead of paying enough taxes

I took a cab there to hold her
I took a plane there to feel what she felt
You make me like charity
Instead of paying enough taxes

I took a cab there to hold her
I took a plane there to feel what she felt
You make me like charity
Instead of paying enough taxes

I took a cab there to hold her
I took a plane there to feel what she felt
You make me like charity
Instead of paying enough taxes

I took a cab there to hold her
I took a plane there to feel what she felt
You make me like charity
Instead of paying enough taxes

I took a cab there to hold her
I took a plane there to feel what she felt
You make me like charity
Instead of paying enough taxes

I took a cab there to hold her
I took a plane there to feel what she felt
You make me like charity
Instead of paying enough taxes

I took a cab there to hold her
I took a plane there to feel what she felt
You make me like charity
Instead of paying enough taxes

    General CommentTo me, this is about the weapon industry. Sweden puts tax money in producing weapons and selling them to other countries, while everyone thinks that this is such a peaceful country.
    I can see why people think that this is about a relationship, but I still really believe in my idea. Sound more like something The Knife would write about.
