Track Name: Uansett fortapt
varmere varmere
verden brenner
men kalde hender kjenner ingenting
holder hodet/hjertet kaldt og kalkulerer
investerer. konsumerer. mer. mer. mer

dette kan ikke fortsette lenger
men det fortsetter som før
dette kan ikke fortsette lenger
men det er akkurat det det gjør

hun sitter på gata
jeg går forbi
jeg har for dårlig tid til å gi
men hva vil det si
om jeg gir ti eller null eller hundre?
ingenting vil det forandre
hun forblir den andre
og jeg kan la meg forundre
over skammen jeg føler
uansett hva jeg gjør

hvis det er oss mot dem
si meg hvem er hvem?
si meg hvem er den
som vil prøve
å redde
noe og noen
som uansett er fortapt?

vi fortapte barn
vi var ikke skapt for denne verden
denne verden var ikke skapt for oss
men fortapt
for oss
Track Name: Hammer It Apart
your "what were you doing alone late at night in the park?"
your "were you drunk?" your "how short was your skirt anyway?"
your "anyway, those hijabs should be banned"
your "clash of civilizations", your so-called civilization

i wanna
hammer it apart

your "boys will be boys", your "be a real man"
your "can't you take a compliment?" your street harassment
your "abortion is killing babies"
your gender normality. your heterosexuality

your racist rapist reality
i wanna hammer it apart
Track Name: Alltid for mye
så mange netter. så mange kvelder
så mange timer. så mange år
så mange minner. brent fast. brent bort
så mange arr fra glemte sår

alltid for mye og aldri nok

så redd for å skuffe. så redd for å feile
så redd for å leve. så redd for å dø
men dagen er kommet, og timen er kommet:
adjø

alltid for mye og aldri nok

på sporet av alt som forsvant
i et blindspor jeg visste jeg aldri skulle gå
alt som jeg fant. tapte/vant
har jeg mista det nå?
har jeg rista det av meg nå?

jeg etterlater nok et jeg
jeg nok kan lengte etter
men ikke lenger etterape
jeg etterlater jeg

alltid for mye og aldri mer
Track Name: Life Does Not Live
i would prefer not to
have every day like every day
i would prefer not to
suffer karoshi for the bills I have to pay
i would prefer not to
be colonized in an empire where the sun
of capitalism never sets
i would prefer not to
have them get what we spend
while we spend what we get

this is the chorus of idle footsteps
this is the chorus of "i would prefer not to"

i would prefer not to
step on people below to get to the heavens above
i would prefer not to
choose the garbage disposal over love
i would prefer not to
spend my life
i would prefer not to
spend my life spending my life

this is the chorus
of idle footsteps

life does not live
