Song For You 04:49
Song for you For the last six years I've been less than alright It's like a click-track trickin away my life Didn't I tell you? Didn't I watch you cry for a pain that's mine? We've been lost we've been found We've been knocked to the ground All aboard here's a song for you who don't know what to do...

Hands On 02:42
Hands On What seems to be the problem man I hope you don't mind me asking If there's anything you need just let me know We offer continual upgrades We offer a sense of ease For the right amount of life sacrificed you too can feel almost completely free. Put your hands on the hood so I can see em Put your hands on the hood so I can see em In all its modesty, oppression's a charm "Gleenback dalla me love you long time" Devil comes in many shapes Gimme a break gimme a break gimme a break Detect the sickness I got it bad Always at the end of a rope wound tightly around my neck I don't recall anyone asking, if I had got objections? It's just a blur of unspoken terms Put your hands on the hood so I can see em Put your hands on the hood so I can see em Satisfaction in surrender? I guess we can agree we don't agree... Put your hands on the hood so I can see em Put your hands on the wall so I can see em Put your hands on my face so I can feel em Put your hands on my skin so I can feel it Put your lips on my lips so I can feel it Put your skin on my skin so I can feel it Put your tounge in my mouth so I can feel it Put your tounge in my mouth so I can feel it Put your skin on my skin so I can feel it Put your hands in my hands so I can feel it Put your hands in my hands so I can feel it Put your hands on my hands so I can feel it Put your hands in my hands so I can see em

One sweet moment We dance like spiders, jangly entangled We move in circles and figures of eight We have no worries, but just you wait. It always comes back... There's never more than one sweet moment It's all going to fall down It's all going to fail If I was president, you would not have to agree I'd paint the White House indigo I'd make a terrible leader, just because I could but we'd have a good time I'd have them soldier boys building schools There's never more than one sweet moment Take it or leave it, there will be no more adapting truth We were lovers So briefly I've missed you, for too long Where it leads us Where to go now Only time can tell for sure And we are who we are

Ordinary Folk Hocus pokus Me me me Compulsive obsessive Control Defense Denial Deliberate inconsequence Irrational and self-fulfilling This is a circle This is a square An egg is not an apple So if the king is naked... The past is NOT the present The sun is not the moon A knife will likely cut Whereas a spoon is still a spoon A cardboard box filled with raisins is still a cardboard box with raisins This is a circle This is a square Ain't nothing that I say that makes sense to you but at least I try, and that's all a man can do. Strange as it may seem I tried to see the world through your eyes but my suspension of disbelief only lasts for so long... Stop all this correcting for heaven's sake the world don't revolve around you and me This is a circle This is a square Commanding Demanding Compliance instead of respect Yeah I wish you good luck with all that, and have a nice day you too Here come the cavalry Here come the clowns That doggawn scumbag's got to pay for his insolence and how... You won't find me among ordinary folks no more You won't find me among ordinary folks no more I won't go anywhere close to ordinary folk no more No ordinary folk no more

Sunday mornings Grateful I bow my head for the grace you give Teach me I'm willing to unlearn Your smile and sparklin eyes they hold a kindness and a curse Brothers and sisters, we were not born to die this way, we were not meant to waste away. Carry on until it's gone Call me up, if you come back round I know it's a miracle I'm alive It's beautiful like that somehow, but now I got somethin to tell the kids about See; It's alright to change your mind midstride. All these streets I only knew from songs All these words somehow belonged Kate you're out in Hartford, and I can't even reach myself most of the time. Here's my 105th blown love-song I hope you don't mind If I borrow your name for a while Is that alright? Feels like I'm never gonna see you again So far away, so far apart it's become a game Can't hold the world in my hand alone Let's build a place to call our home. Strip away the romance to see what is real I'm all for sunday mornings, endless possiblities. Would you consider; Unconditional and truthful? All this distracttion leads us off How far do you think we'll go before we accept it? Opposites attract. Here's my 105th blown love-song I hope you don't mind if I borrow your name for a while Is that alright? Seems like life won't me make up my mind what's wrong or right When you're caught inbetween what really matters, what really matters, anymore?

I'm only truly happy when I'm alone When the music finally calls me home She don't ask for much She gives me love And I can't understand why you treat her so bad. She's my sister She's mother She's my friend and she's my lover If I'm too jaded, I apoligize. I always apoligize. Seems I'm making excuses Protecting the innocent from a truth you can't bear Suicide would be such a sweet relief but I promised you not to go... So when that moment comes we're the one and same No more separating trade outposts of shame. No more deception No more of this vanity No more regression bullshit parody. Fuck your fear Fuck your attitude Fuck your cornered stone age platitudes. Cause you're only a shadow, of a dying past. If I'm too jaded, I apoligize. I always apoligize. Seems I'm making excuses Protecting the innocent from a truth you can't handle Suicide would be such a sweet relief but I promised you not to go... Let him without fault come and cast the first stone Lest you be judged, judge not. Tell me to what God would you ascribe the hatred you feel? Did Jesus tell you to lie, steal, cheat and kill? Is there anything holy? Is there anything sacred? Who will forgive us? Vajra Guru Pemme Siddi Hung.

Whole generations of junkies will do anything to get away. Well television lost, but tell me at what cost? We're not even sentimental, we're just young and bitter. Should you invest your sphere of interest in utter corrupition? "Let's just pretend that it's not really there!" "It's just a grand amazing costume party!" You're all invited. We could die young and beautiful. We won't feel a thing. "You can't hold this against me!" You can't pretend we're not real. The cost of living is too clear. But somebody will bail you out I'm sure, so fuck these tweekin sons o bitches... There's always someone further down the ladder Your perfect moral aptitude will serve to prove you're not like them... Spare me your sympathies your perfect kids will fuck you up one day. Your world is sickening My will to die is mine alone and you can't take it from me if you try. Got nothing much to live for Can't see the point in dying. They say "Hang in there man, it gets better" That just a god damned lie. It doesn't. It's just the impulse to rebel that fades with age. You grow complacent and understanding. What a fucking waste But somebody will bail you out I'm sure, so fuck these tweekin sons o bitches... There's always someone further down the ladder Your perfect moral aptitude will serve to prove You're not like them... Spare me your sympathies Your perfect kids will fuck you up one day. Your world is sickening My will to die is mine alone and you can't take it from me if you try.

No Solicitors 20 years straight, living under the loupe will make a man more than aware of where he is, who he was, and what he's become, and then some. I think we're done here. I think this is it. I think that perhaps the line that should not be crossed has finally collapsed. If there's anything you think you know about me that I haven't had shoved down my throat pulled out of my gut cut from my heart shat out and spat out please do enlighten me... you seem to know a lot. Read the sign. Dead end up ahead. No solicitors allowed. I've been poked pried open cursed and accused I've been assigned fingered and folded Dissected and dealt I've been questioned and queried rejected and claimed all the same I was hoisted up onto a pedistal, and pushed back down when they saw fit. I've been dragged through shame and infamy the laughing stock, the village fool through love and loathing, fear and hate. But I always got back up again. It's what I do. And it was not because of you.

So Sick 03:36
So Sick It doesn't open up until it's really over. Experience is a beautiful thing But hurts just to think about I'm sick sick sick of lipservice and networking I'm sick sick sick of imbecills in positions I'm sick sick sick of selfservice commitment I'm sick sick sick of all your indifference It's all business, business-decisions And everyone's runnin away from home Got great big dreams, got great machines Got everything but devotion It doesn't open up until it's really over. You're so very heavy metal, you just can't help it But the kids all love the noise. I'm sick sick sick Of convenient and userfriendly I'm sick sick sick Of 1984 I'm sick sick sick Of formatted cloned entertainment I'm sick sick sick Of what it's really for I'm sick sick sick Of gatekeepers and opinions I'm sick sick sick Of how it used to be I'm sick sick sick of why we choose to be sick sick sick

All this beauty Doesn't matter what you did Doesn't matter what you would Doesn't matter if you could Doesn't matter if you say so, oh never mind. If we draw magic circles it'll all start tonight but words are not enough. All this beauty gone to waste You're blind Fair enough Let's destroy our past together

about

Beginning in july 2011, I had come to a place in my life and art where for some reason I knew "This is it. No more adapting to groups, superficial ideas of genres, or styles. I started recording, with no censoring, complete flow of conciousness. Free creation. Finally. Without restraints. And I made a couple of songs every weeks, it just kept pouring out. I realized this was a truly inspired record falling into play. As the songs kept coming I asked Per Möller Jensen, who'd been playing with in The Haunted for 10 years if he would like to play on the record, and he was completely open for diving into it. He explained he wanted time to really put his heart into and certainly he did. Mixing an amazing classic rock feel and a energetic inspiring jazz influence his drums blew my mind as I heard what he had comeup with for the songs.

I spoke to Tue Madsen, who I had befriended during hours of work with The Haunted, we share a deep love of music and we decided that he would master. Fredrik Reinedahl who got involved with House Of Dolving back when we started recording <O> in 2011 has become a dear friend along the process. We met eachother for the first time back in summer of -95 and he kept playing stuff to me that I really love that he had or was mixing. Burst, Passengers, Abandon and later Solstafir. The man is a bona fide sound wizard and really one of the smartest loving people I know.

And a year after a couple of hundred alone long nights at end it's all in place. This is Thieves And Liars.

I really hope you will enjoy it as much we have making it.
