We’re gathered here to lose our grip and all our guidelines and guilt To sing and dance like nobody's watching and fight the wars inside ourselves It’s not the songs as much as a sense of a plan not written yet We howl our hearts out, hoping the blueprints will somehow escape our heads Without knowing the words we sing along For the music belongs to everyone There's so much hatred outside of these walls but In this pit we pick up those who fall One thousand daisies, underground, longing for the sun One thousand daisies, growing through the concrete One thousand daisies, feeling close to somewhere we belong Somewhere we belong You might just find that what makes you human are the flaws that you hate So let’s celebrate our imperfections and the last edges that remain Without knowing the words we sing along... What we felt here for a second could be the layout for our lives Let's try to remember and keep it with us when the moment’s gone So take look around you, the smiling faces in the crowd We all made this happen - here we're all equals and we all belong One thousand daisies...

The world’s gone to shit and we’re completely pacified We’re all out of anger, all out of things to say Completely numb, completely democratized We’ll form an opinion maybe in four more years or so If this is the end we might as well sing I hope you found someone to represent you For years to come, in a way we all won The winning conditions have been met: Just the fact that this happened, This glorious election night Everything here is fucked, the future is plain to see But I did what I could - I voted responsibly We all did our part, tonight is a victory I’m sure those fuckers in power are all out to celebrate If this is the end we might as well sing… Four more years of sitting down and shutting up and being disappointed The party’s great - let the show go on With people in charge you couldn’t trust even if your life depended on it And the best part: It really does and there no more you can do about it But just the fact that this happened!

We traded our connections for more floor space And our passions for better careers Wiped out every threat to our survival And all we’re left is this peculiar sadness While the world gets pulled onto our doorstep The people close to us get pushed away We just might be the loneliest people (who lived) on this overpopulated planet You are not weak you’ve just been strong for too long And all hope is not gone But you just long for somewhere to belong We're holding on to dreams of yesterdays that never was in this bitter place We're holding on, stand in our own way In this bitter place In a time where time always feels borrowed In a time where time’s always to short Taking time to be kind to others is not something many can afford On the days you can't get out of bed And you're imprisoned in your mind It gets so easy to forget That things get better if we let them On the days when you can't fit your head And feel stuck as you fall behind It gets so easy to forget That things get better if we let them

about

This EP was written and recorded for the fundraiser to save the venue 1000Fryd in Aalborg, Denmark. Having this venue around has been of great importance for us growing up in our small town and after being part of the scene at 1000Fryd for almost 20 years, it is still our favourite place to go as both audience and performers.

The first year, all profits generated from this EP will go towards maintaining 1000Fryd!
