MELTING LAKES (Gärdebylåten)

Lyrics by MaJiKer

Hear the silence swirl and sway, we are melting
Stillness slides away, we are melting
Mouths that could not move break free to sing
The coming of the spring
See the surface bleed and flow, we are melting
Freed, these reeds shall grow, we are melting
Eyes that saw no light now watch us bring in
The coming of the spring

We're alive
Thriving where waters walking free,
Where the trees are talking
Born again, we've worn these chains away
With every golden ray
We're alive, diving in new sensation
Free from our hibernation
Smash the ice and splash this vice away
With the dawning of the day

Growing warmer every day
As our prison melts away


from NORTH, released November 3, 2014
