I roll one die there are a lot more tries what a lovely lie I roll two dice what exciting times that`s an easy-go I roll three dice everything - it`s price now that sounds unfair I save two dice crazy how time flies i will take it slow I say life`s damn hard You say you `wont get too far I`ll try – alright Life`s more than an endless turn Its values to learn There`s more in return I do – return everything I roll four dice and still unresigned everything goes byebye - by I raise insight everything seems light what an easy-go I say life`s damn fine you say take it as a good sign i tried – and failed

Some say it`s `lights out` - I am losing my voice Some like to say `I - tried to act by choice` Something to be part of and nothing to stand for but everything we`ve preached once is chasing metaphors Time lies in a fountain bed - down the drain with a plan but nothing to be scared of - and nothing to go wrong everything carried out once - is chasing luck along Take me somewhere to stay ... Embrace me clandestine .... Take me to a quiet place ... where it blooms and shines A dream`s a useless place to hide disengage myself my will tried – failed .... I am fragile I push / i doubt / understanding everyone dispute / appeal / wanna fight with everyone Zoom in / on dreams / i long for catching one for me Assume it appears like loss and push - to me Idoubt / i deal / hung up on company I `m safe / appeal / wanna fight with everyone Zoom in / on dreams / I long for catching one for me Assume it appears like loss and push to me I save a smile now / pause in the game I`ll soon erase all the standstills in me I`ll sail my fog now / hang out with my shame I`ll grow and face all ... anger in me I push / i doubt / understanding everyone dispute / appeal / wanna fight with everyone zoom in / on dreams / I long for catching one for me

How I feel When it feels dark (blue) I take a light and shine – through Shall I carry on Or shall I wait Shall I sing it out - `I wanna feel` I kinda fear it all I wanna feel it I wanna feel the pure – true I wanna feel it all - true When the light inside me spirals how it feels inside – grief`s gone viral and it hurts - a lot of things ..... a lot of things inside ... The thing is – there`s something on it`s way And sometimes – a wake up – call - there`s meaning on it`s way Cause something`s on its way it blurs my thoughts - turns off the light There`s something on its way it clears the fog - it`s on my side There`s something on its way it hurts so bad – too late to hide There`s something on its way - it`s sad There`s something on its way There`s something to embrace /obey /convey) I need it so bad but it hurts This is how I feel

Drifting alone – strange times Facing some lies feels wise Affection fades like my unloved cries Feeling low – our lot of happiness has had it`s tries When love is sought light as breeze But feeling gravity`s arch smile in peace black holes made us high Leave the glow of lies Miss you and I always - Miss you and I Miss you and I as phrase I`ll cure my lies in some ways Drift on a light faded float - what`s said seems like A dream `bout life that feels like a sunset - it`s mine Sun is smiling calls me beats me swindles my time Feeling low cause what`s been said hit its high And truth is what`s left of this mis-considerable life – it wasn`t mine Feeling constrained and sad cause love life sure crashed – rewind Loneliness - it`s pungent smell I sucked – it crashed - I`m fine Desolate thoughts in forty-nine tries its time - I oughta cry Cause it`s you - you and I Miss you and I – this sadness in strange times And everytime you said love life was a lie I taste real life - our time is up- it`s cruel And every shard of our dissent is true I put my life and time in scale – where it`s ideal Out of sight - for a while - You go miss me There`s a tale this life was our dream

No Surrender 05:09
It`s said we`re right on top in size as if we didn`t know its price ... a waste of time - unwind Tasting all the crap we strived Appeal on our side - acclaim on it`s slide Our aims have not resigned we all need faith at times a pull implies the act - to try retain awe to surrender Our world has not reclined to try may fail but don`t be shy because we sought to be the change today`s claim - no surrender I think we know it`s dire when facing all these cheats and liars the bad makes suffering our souls a great art to surrender This isn`t understandable life isn`t there to care bout lies this isn`t understandable Our aim will not refrain to think bout those in pain a fact that makes us walk the line and know we won`t surrender persist to think ahead we will not lose our winding thread to care will foster our lost souls to say we won`t surrender Woohooo get up be true, care, sympathize share, love, empathize no doubt – we won`t surrender truth is, it`s sad enough truth is we`ve had enough true care will beat the cheat our values changed - surrender A shame that we all hide .... but let`s not break our stride indifference out – the rules have changed no - no surrender

This world is out of round, my soul is earth-unbound, it seems it`s done for me . We thought we ended rain, caught on a narrow lane it seems we all but hoped in vain. You said you and me, we fought towards an understanding why, then lull and bye, Our care - a seeming fate, we caused love to bloom. We thought it`s right, we`ve gone too high to slide It made us sigh, to strand is like a sweet sign so to speak, the sore spot we sure touched caused us to smile. Was it just an odder craze, the moment I was cracking up, defending all the fuss we tried to change. My will feels like it`s tamed, my vim and vigor lamed, `it calls` it says, I`m fine, it fits, it`s fake. My soul distracts with pain, a pantomime refrain, it`s said, it ends as fast I can I guess. It`s our relief in vain, a smell of devastation - all the shit we trust. It`s `cause the beauty fails, if all sore losers hail I said I`ve had enough. As I felt cause defending, understanding why. And all this tragic all the magic, sometimes I`m lost. All this madness, all my sadness, all these friends I`ve lost. And all the damage, all this ravage, in love I trust

Confused by this craze No glimpse of a reason escape from the race we need a new deal We dig deep in oblivion a mind full of will expose some pearls overcome all confines We`re all here on common ground devoted to all - our precious We depend on common ground Longing for - new ways on the rise Tired of the crap enshrined offer up a compelling thought - done I feel sane now amazed by your instinct shape - share – unveil We - care - about ... as we all do depend on We`re all here on common ground Make times of greed fade out We depend on common ground Fire up your might - Feels like we unwind In common now On common ground time to bring into line human needs Longing for - new ways on the rise

Tears don`t strike – they surf above fears are alike – they smile Tell your hope `bout your tries But struggle through feels unwise Wohoo - Wohohooo Gather some friends and laugh for a while. Waiting for cause is like caring `bout style. Set off for joy – bring back some more insights. Give in some love to unfold – or at least a try. Thinking of this life as side up ... this side down .... try to ride if you decide – which side to go if you decide to ride the choice for the upside implies to tell your hurts goodbye Mirth hits our fears undefended A spell is mesmerizing me, how can this be Dump your constraints and let go of your pain. My choice has chased away despair and easiness enchants me. This trust is wise - I`m stunned this sunrise stays If we decide this side to go, if we decide to ride To live with a smile for a while, decide on and go. If we decide, this side to go - this side to go implies to say goodbye. Embrace now what`s light and take in all sun and shine on everything.

vi har hverandre og tror på at alt er i fred og ro har oss – kom inn du min venn vi har hverandre og ro, tiltro og samvær freden viser meg vi har et samband, vi aldri ville be om mer vi har hverandre (og tro) vi har hverandre og tror på at alt er i fred og ro har oss – kom inn du min venn vi har hverandre og ro, tiltro og samvær freden viser meg vi har et samband, vi aldri ville be om mer vi har hverandre

about

Take a bit of «the Notwist», a sip of «Kid A» from Radiohead, lots of independence and exuberant ideas - voilà!
Nówfragos timeless sound bewitches and convinces with herbaceous and partly epic songs as well as political lyrics far away from the mainstream.
