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!

Track Name: 1000 Daisies
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...
Track Name: Election Night
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!
Track Name: Bitter Place
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
