  • Under this sun
    Look what we have got
    And those who haven't
    Bad luck

    We've been running 'round
    Pushing the shopping cart
    January 2012
    Even in the suburbs of Rome

    A brick in a castle a camp for those on the run
    Dance as weapons
    Release my eyes eyes eyes eyes tell me you
    Some other kid is sucking on my thumb
    Eyes eyes eyes eyes tell me you
    Another kid needs to suck on my thumb

    Under the sun
    Picking piles of flowers for the flowers' pot
    It's all that I've got

    On my doorstep
    A screaming hand
    I'm telling you stories
    Trust me

    Rewrite history to suit our needs
    Open my country
    A tooth for an eye eyes eyes eyes tell me you
    Some other kid is sucking on my thumb
    Eyes eyes eyes eyes tell me you
    Another kid needs to suck on my thumb

    Border's lies the idea of what's mine
    A strange desire
    Drawing lines with a ruler, bring the fuel to the fire

    Border's lies the idea of what's mine, a strange desire
    Drawing lines with a ruler
    Bring the fuel to the fire Writer/s: Karin Elizabeth Dreijer Andersson, Olof Bjorn Dreijer
