Jotun (Live)

Verse 1

I often dream of huge, numb buildings
Jet-black, sinister architecture
Being installed when nobody sees
Their appearance so sudden
That few would take notice

Verse 2

And when I wake up
I imagine being crushed by one
Imagining its weight, its silence
And the absence of excuses for a havoced life
And the privilege of a 22-kilometer tombstone

Hook

Jotun

Chorus

A body of black
That carried no reflection
Defying its own room
Un-earthly eggs of decreation

Verse 3

There would be colonies
Mushroom-scattered, forever out of context
Rising spores from a dying world
To pollute, to chase away what's left

Bridge

Sun-white, pulverized desert stone
And serpentine lizard mouths
Pales away the pyramids
Rewriting 4,500 years of history

Verse 4

Raping the statue of liberty
Outplays the acropolis
Inverting the fjords
Invades the N.Y. skyline to
Dream its own existence in one single final word

Hook

Jotun

Chorus

A body of black
That carried no reflection
Defying its own room
Un-earthly eggs of decreation

Chorus

A body of black
That carried no reflection
Defying its own room
Un-earthly eggs of decreation

Verse 5

Can we identify them
As the flint buried in our reptile skulls
Or the time-bomb coded in our DNA

Hook

Jotun

Chorus

A body of black
That carried no reflection
Defying its own room
Un-earthly eggs of decreation
