Brosandi
Hendumst í hringi
Höldumst í hendur
Allur heimurinn óskýr
nema þú stendur

Rennblautur
Allur rennvotur
Engin gúmmístígvél
Hlaupandi í okkur ?
Vill springa út úr skel

Vindur í
og útilykt ? af hárinu þínu
Ég lamdi eins fast og ég get
með nefinu mínu
Hoppa í poll
Í engum stígvélum
Allur rennvotur(rennblautur)
Í engum stígvélum

Og ég fæ blóðnasir
En ég stend alltaf upp
(Hopelandish)

Og ég fæ blóðnasir
En ég stend alltaf upp
(Hopelandish)

    Translation:

    "Jumping in Puddles"

    Smiling Spinning 'round and 'round Holding hands The whole world a blur But you are standing Soaked Completely drenched No rubber boots Running in us Want to erupt from a shell

    Wind in An outdoor smell of your hair I hit as fast as I could With my nose

    Hopping into puddles Completely drenched Soaked With no boots on

    And I get nosebleed But I always get up (Hopelandic)

    And I get nosebleed But I always get up (Hopelandic)

    i really like this song... it's really pretty... it's one of those songs that'll make you happy when you want to be happy and sad when you want to be sad... if that makes any sense at all...

    It's funny because I don't understand a word he's saying, but i feel like i know the meaning of the song. The way the song is built. It's in the movie Children of Men which I can wait to see. It's probably a little bit because of the song...

    The lyrics translated to english sounds a bit funny, but if you watch the music video they make perfect sense. The song is beautiful, with an equally beautiful music video. I'm majoring in gerontology (caring for the elderly) and the video for this song almost brought me to tears...seeing the elderly run around like young children again, regaining their youthful vigor and grace....absolutely beautiful.

    Song Meaning

    When I hear this song all I picture, in terms of its meaning, is two lovers standing, oblivious to all the negativity that they are surrounded by - all they know is that as long as they have each other they can get through anything and everything life throws at them. This song is full of so much positivity and hope and everytime I hear it I'm filled with optimism and I burst into tears. I'll definately be walking down the aisle to this song...

    "Brosandi Hendumst I hringi Holdumst I hendur....."

    I think I'm gonna cry....

    the lyrics translated sound a bit goofy but this song has so much hope embedded in it and it just makes me so happy every time i listen. Saw them do this one live and Jonsi played a semi-hollow bass so we had a 2-bass song and it was pretty fantastic.

Step
Ministry
Both as a standalone and as part of the DSOTS album, you can take this lyric as read. As a matter of public record, Jourgensen's drug intake was legendary even in the 1980s. By the late 90s, in his own words, he was grappling with massive addiction issues and had lost almost everything: friends, spouse, money and had nearly died more than once. "Dark Side of the Spoon" is a both funny & sad title for an album made by a musical genius who was losing the plot; and this song is a message to his fans & friends saying he knows it. It's painful to listen to so I'm glad the "Keith Richards of industrial metals" wised up and cleaned up. Well done sir.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.
