Special thanks to:
Peter Fjordbak, Thomas Holm, Niels Top, Jakob Retz Johansen for making this album a reality and to Stine Moltzen, Mark Christiansen, Snævar Njáll Albertsson, Johannes Bech for all your pleasant feedback and intelectually stimulating sparring. Thanks to fans, supporters, friends and family for showing up at my concerts and listening to the songs.

Track Name: My Drunk Academics
My Drunk Academics

the wind in the faraway trees
got in and touched the people
of the southern sun

and the skin
is funneling down the valley
to the bonfire dripping with orange smoke

and the Solomon Isles
begin to write a message
here on my forehead

from love
it tells me to fall in love
with my country and all the royalty

you turn my head around
no time to kid around

I get it but Why In Mono
the turnstile was closed
and we didn't have a key

you turn my head around
no time to kid around
Track Name: Sicily Rising
Sicily Rising

why don't you go home
fall in love with an understudy
yeah just for a change
why don't you make something new

have you ever made a difference
have you everly loved the falling
is it something to just keep on living
still I envy the unaware

cus I think I liked you better when we were younger
yes, I think I liked you better when we were young

have you ever made a change
while I'm getting so younger by
the minute I see Delmore raising through Reed
and I wish I was more unkind

as you think way to loud
and way to highly about the future
I think way to poorly about
your adamant ideas
will you ever gain conscience
will evidence seem to clear

cus I think I loved you better when you were younger
yeah, I think I loved you better when you were young
and I think I loved you better when you were younger
yes, I think I loved you better when we were young

and if this is the upside
then surely I look forward to autumn
and the dawning of your naked ambition
I see Perseus
I see Sicily rising
in the morning
Track Name: Human Shells
Human Shells

at last we're free from our human and vulnerable shells
we tried to come over for so many years

I'm speechless beside you
we'll climb all the stairs
and we're ringing our names from the church towers
and we're soaring our fears

from where we are to where we'll be
there's a minimum to our gains
from where we are to where we'll be
there's a minimum to our loss

at least we're free from our human and vulnerable shells
we tried to come over for so many years

I'll surrender before you
we'll climb all the stairs
and we're ringing our names from the church towers
and we're strolling our fears

from where we are to where we'll be
there's a minimum to our gains
from where we are to where we'll be
there's a minimum to our loss
Track Name: Maybe Some Time From Now
Maybe Some Time From Now

maybe some time from now
I will come crying back to you
but for now I have to see for myself
how the world is turning around on itself
if in fact it is turning at all
who knows

and maybe some time from now
I will come crying back to you
but for now I have to try for myself
my trials are in store just for me no one else
cus nobody wants to be helpless as a rich man's child
do they

cus I don't want to be carried around
I don't want to be carried around
maybe some time from now

and maybe some time from now
I will come crying back to you
but for now I have to love all I can
with the people still young and not turn into sand
there'll be plenty of time to turn fields into castles for me

and maybe some time from now
you will come crying back to me
there was no one who knew in this city of noise
and the only one listening had thrown out his voice
there'll come a time when I'll cast out my ears in the sea

cus I don't want to be carried around
I don't want to be carried around
I don't want to be carried
I don't want to be carried
maybe some time from now
Track Name: Lightheaded
Lightheaded

let it be little flickers
little flickers of light in the autumn sun
small islands on just a windy beach
hands off and then I'll be on my way

the cold linnen
the free shivers
I needed another story told
the forsaken
the lovesingers
the lovesingers with lice in the autumn sun

shining all around
shining on the ground

both minutes
both feet up
both circles of life flowing in my blood
lightheaded
nothing's left for me
in the path of the only safe and sound

the cold linnen
the free shivers
I needed another set of eyes
the forsaken
the lovesingers
the lovesingers will follow the autumn sun

shining all around
shining on the ground
shining up and down

shining all around
shining on the ground
shining up and down
try to keep the sound
Track Name: D

all I need is love
and all we need is food
to rise we set above
more leaning towards
apple pies, milks and waters
something fresh

all I need is love
to rise we set above
towards, more leaning towards
the sunlight in my kitchen
apple pies, milks and waters
something fresh
Track Name: K
K

lovers holding still in the steetlamp
tall and tails like the pinnacles
giving no solutions

just locked up rays of the sun
and my maker says that I'm the one
who will never see it's done

and it might just be
that the tree is pulling me to go forward
to tell her that she makes me

while some lovers make it
others never start
it's got a lot to do with the woman
it's got a little to do with the heart

Denmark, is this part of my world
is this the part that drives me
with tounges all drenched in mud

why do you make these songs
all end up in english
why did the great get poor

and it all became all this squinting
when did we all depart
from a place where girls look into

into the eyes of their fellow men
and tell him that he has done something
something great for all

while some lovers make it
others never start
it's got a lot to do with the woman
it's got a little to do with the heart

while some places got it
others they never will
and I won't miss the fighting
for just the sake of the hill

why do you make these songs
all end up in english

while some lovers make it
others never start
it's got a lot to do with the woman
it's got a little to do with the heart

while some places got it
others they never will
and I won't miss the fighting
for just the sake of the hill
Track Name: Regardless
Regardless

I want to hang a sign above my door
nothing more than a wooden board
that reads "do not consider"
and next to that a smiling face
and next to that

"no considerations of any kind
anyone do exactly what you feel like
and say exactly what you want
and know that I like you no matter what you say"

and hopefully nothing will change
and we'll still put jigsaw puzzles together 'til 3 a.m.
just relax I like you no matter what you do
regardless of anything you might say
regardless of anything you might do
Track Name: Loneliness
Loneliness

if you lose your feel of things
and if you lose your upper hand
and you will
yeah, you will
but the seizers will seize to be seizing you
yeah, the seizers will seize to be seizing you

you will grow around it
you will
you will grow around it
and loneliness will leave you alone

yeah, you will bloom
just take another look
and I don't need proof
no I don't need proof
that the rain will rain only for a moment
that the rain will rain only for a moment

singing like a stone
up in Gardeners Creek

do you like my finger in your book
I point along and see no real need to lift away

do you like my hands around your waste
do you like my kisses in your hair

you will grow around it
you will
you will grow around it
and loneliness will leave you alone
yeah, loneliness will leave you alone
Track Name: Sinué
Sinué

(inaudible)

lovers in the eyes of a lonely friend
we're lovers in the eyes of a lonely friend
lovers in the eyes of a lonely friend
lovers in the eyes of me

my sweet goes dancing
in the bleakest of her days
I'm in the bedroom
with her painting of a golden age

I feared the morning
coming closer from my door
no time for weeping
is this flashlight for borrowing

light up November
with a bonfire and a shot
feeding the fire
from when no one used to drink a lot

before my evening
you stand ready with my meal
I find a shadow
that the hunters didn't steal away

from a lonely friend
lovers in the eyes of a lonely friend
lovers in the eyes of a lonely friend
we're lovers in the eyes of a lonely friend
lovers in the eyes of me

keeping emotion
with the heirloom that we smoked
I bet the thinkers
were up early while the sun awoke

I drank the bottom
of the bottle and the hen
I drank the women,
the sunlight and a friend again

a lonely friend
lovers in the eyes of a lonely friend
we're lovers in the eyes of a lonely friend
lovers in the eyes of a lonely friend
lovers in the eyes of me
