  • Lyrics
  • This song describes a night that Mando Diao lead singers Björn Dixgård and Gustaf Norén had in Amsterdam on drugs. Norén said of the experience in an interview to promote the album, "It's not for children, not even for adults. It's a very frightening story, but it's all there on the album. I don't want to give out any details. It was the best night and the worst night of my life." >>
