Blind Masses

The blind masses spoke with one voice
thinking that the people had the power
until the drums set the web spinning
and the thread was unravelled
while everyone insisted 
they knew the truth

The empty chair

There is always an empty chair
in my house
in my garden
on my deck
in my car
everywhere
every time I sit down
anywhere
there is always an empty chair
near me



Det er alltid en tom stol
i huset mitt
i hagen min
på terrassen min
i bilen min
overalt
hver gang jeg setter meg ned
uanset hvor
er det alltid en tom stol
nær meg

I'm Scared

I am scared.
The memory of you and me in
this house
is starting to fade
It's becoming like it was always
just me here
and that scares me.



Jeg er redd.
Minnet om deg og meg i dette huset er
i ferd med å blekne.
Det begynner å føles som om det
alltid har vært bare meg her og 
det skremmer meg.
