P1r Finally got round to buying this, after having streamed it a million times or so. Amazing album, every track is great in its own right. Definitely a desert island album if there ever was one. Favorite track: Virgin (Bonus Track).

Johanna A I finally decided to download this one as one of my favourite bands, Sólstafir has been sharing links to their videos for quite some time.

I don't listen to electronic music very regularly, but this caught my attention with the sombre atmosphere and lyrics and rockish vocals. Very nice companion for running or other sports. Favorite track: Runaway Train.

Track Name: Benjamite Bloodline
We are from a bloodline
That was lost in
Times of Chaos

We are the Benjamite Bloodline

I am the son of the one
Who is
The God of us men
Who is of the Benjamite bloodline
Track Name: City
I feel so alone tonight
I need to find some company
After hours energy
Cause I
Feel the city
I need the city
I love the city
Give me the city
Howl

Pills, thrills and porcupines
Face of heaven liquid eyes
Coming closer to the high
Cause I
I'm in the city
I feel the city
I love the city
Give me the city
Howl

The cattle burns its currency
Craving for their ecstasy
Pulling teeth of secrecy
Get Down
Those are the pleasures
Of the city
I feel the city
Give me the city
Howl

I just want to see the truth
In the shadow of doubt
Give me something
Howl
Give me something

I don't believe my city is a dying bride
Give me something
Howl
Give me something

I howl at the city

Am I the man that will bathe in your light?
You give me secrets that I can't hide
You hold your freak flag up high
We are destined to die
With the city
In the City
Give me the City

Are you the one that will bather in her light?
She'll tell you secrets that you can't hide
You hold your freak flag up high
You are destined to die
With the City
In the City
Give me the City

I just want to see the truth
In the shadow of doubt
Give me something
Howl
Give me something

I don't believe my city is a dying bride
Give me something
Howl
Give me something

I want to be the weekend warrior for you
And let you know that I will cherish your filth
Give me the weapons to diminish the morning
And you will be my only Babylon qeen
Track Name: Sister
Oh sister
Oh sister
Your sacred heart of love
Beats inside of me
Your wisdom is my blood

Oh brother
Oh brother
Your words are from above
They echo in my heart
Your blood is in my breath

Oh mother
Oh mother
Your sacred heart of love
Beats inside of me
Your wisdom is my blood

Oh father
Oh father
Your words are from above
They echo in my heart
Your blood is in my breath

I'm falling at your feet
And I'm praying in your name
I'm a sinner but there's no one else to blame

I am not the one to go
It's all upon you
Track Name: Violence
I think of death
Walking through
These empty streets
Where millions walked beneath my feet

I think of pain
Watching the sun set
I am afraid
To see this earth blown away

Did the King of Heaven take time to rest?
Or was he just paving the way for the best

Killing our loved ones
All seems lost now
Quietly burning
Never truly knowing why

How can we defend the sun from falling down?
How can we live without warning?
Till the water runs red

I think of faith
and the God flesh
We serenade
In the violence of love and hate
Track Name: Runaway Train
I can hear a train is coming
Coming from a far place
Nothing's what it seems on the other side
I can feel it from afar
The grass is always greener on the other side
I can see it from afar
On the runaway train
With nothing to gain

It's time for me to leave this place
My soul can never be replaced
I hope you can forgive me now
It's time for me to say goodbye

You can hear me in the air
They're waiting for me over there
I hope they can forgive me now
It's time for me to say goodbye
Track Name: Fearless
I will not be afraid
Time will keep me away
And you told me never to fear
And I told myself to love the pain
And I will not be afraid
And time will keep my away

And I told myself to love the pain
I will not be afraid
Let me be fearless
Please release me
Take me to the river

I will swim in the lake
Time is on my side
And you took away all of my fears
And I told myself to feel the pain
And I will not be afraid
And time is on my side

And I told myself to love the pain
I will not be afraid
Let me be fearless
Please release me
Take me to the river
Track Name: Sudden Stop
Falling into my own grave
I had nothing to lose but faith
I sacrificed myself to dreams
Which turned into nightmares falling over me

Such meaningful existence
Such oblivious resistance
I don't want to know
I just had to go

They speak in secret code and live in the deepest holes
If Hell is hot, I guess Heaven's freezing cold
So then I'll dress warm, and stay calm before the storm
Raise the spirits up out of the grave and get it on
And scream "Hallelujah!" Three cheers for the future.
Give a toast to the past. And God bless all the children.
Am I able to sacrifice my life for paradise?
Would I pay a fair price to slaughter all the parasites?

I need more time 'cause I'm coming in late
Give me shelter from my growing shade
I'm coming Jesus I can't wait
Into living colors of your face
There's something else I need to know
What is lying bleeding in the snow

In the seventh book of sadness
Went through trials of madness
So unsure of the pureness, trying to grasp the vast
It has its fine points of interest.
Can you imagine...
...a man with no armor against the flame,
slaying the dragon
Don't disappoint the dream girl,
jump off the cliff
'cause you don't need wings to fly
Gravity is a myth
Or maybe not. I'll find out if I drop.
'Cause it ain't the fall that kill you.
It's the sudden stop.

Cause there's something
you must see and feel
Until the sadness stops
Track Name: Devil In Me
I've been waiting for the walls to fall on me
I've been waiting for the fall
So fall on me, I don't want to wait

I've been waiting for the walls to fall on me
Fall on me
Don't ask your girlfriend
Don't ask for release
I know there is something else
I know I am someone else

You and me, and the wall
We shall fall freely without control
You and me, and the wall
We will fall
Drop down to the ground

With the devil on my back

We are the ones that must break down these walls
We are the ones that will swim in the flood
Only the wild ones will fight their way through
Heroes are here to fall everyone knows
Heroes are nothing but souls that they chose
You got to look around, stand your ground
Make a sound
Make them all go away
Track Name: Lust
You were talking in your sleep
Moving side to side
You were dripping wet
Almost drowning in your sweat
I heard you call his name
You were moaning insane

I was watching you sleep
You started talking in tongues
Moving up and down
You started touching yourself
Screaming naked lust

I've started to flirt with your shadow
Again
Be a part of the night and the naked
Don't you know that I feel your devotion
Burn for him
Have you seen him ride the moon?
Does he touch your face like I do?
