about

Most of this lyric came to me (Marcus) two years ago when I stayed at a hospital in Lisbon for a few days, after I jumped off a rolling train and
hit my head so hard I had a serious fracture. Long story, but it was one of my best experiences in life so far, and it sure made me appreciate life in a new way. We aimed for the groove of AC/DCs ”Let me put my love into you” on this one, though noone ever comes close of course.

lyrics

THE RISE AND THE FALL (M. Pehrsson)

The way you think, and what you do
Could be up to you
The way you live, and dream away
On a winter's day

When it gets, up to the point
Where you don't hear at all
What goes on, way deep inside
And you prepare for the fall

The things gone wrong, so far
Is all I recall
Everything was beautiful
On the day we were born

And you been down, forever now
A broken life on earth
Begin to see, some parts come back
And an amazing birth

Then later on, the accident
Like a wake-up shout
How come the sun, is burnin' still
Without burning us out

The things gone wrong, so far
I cannot recall
Everything is beautiful
Since the day I was born

The things gone wrong, so far
I can't recall
Everything will be beautiful
Along the rise and the fall
Rise and the fall

The things gone wrong so far
I can't recall
Everything is beautiful
Since the day you were born

The things gone wrong so far
I can't recall
Everything will be beautiful
Along the rise and the fall

Rise and the fall
Rise and the fall
Rise and the fall

Don't prepare for the fall

“I’ve had a pleasure to mix their latest EP and at their heart, lays a genuine drive to explore expression within their genre. I feel their strength lies in their lyrics as well as their powerful performance. They like to explore and grow in their uniqueness, and that feels like a much needed quality in todays music scene.“
