All the things

All the things
(Lyrics: Malin Kjelsrud)

We greet each other with empty eyes
Hardly observing the frozen smiles
Staggering on as blind
Forgot how to unwind

We lost power, there’s only words
Though we practice them as sharpened swords
Thinking someone must pay
Forgot how to play

Maybe this doesn’t make any sense
But I can’t help but wonder

All the things that we seem to do
Just to keep our minds busy
All the lies we believe are true
The thought of it’s making me dizzy

The beast among us has grown bold
Or at least that’s how the story is told
Have we all lost our toys?
Forgot how to make noise
