Jotun - Lyrics by In Flames


Lyrics
I often dream of huge numb buildingsjet-black sinister architecturebeing installed when nobody sees
Their appearance so suddenthat few would take notice
And when I wake up
I imagine being crushed by oneimaginating it's weight it's silenceand the absence of excuses for a havoced lifeand the priviledge of a 22-kilometers tombstone
Jotun
A body of blackthat carried no reflectiondefying it's own roomun-earthly egg of decreation
There would be coloniesmushroom-scattered forever out of contentrising spores from a dying worldto pollute and chase away what's left
Sun-white pulverised desert stoneand serpentine lizard mouths
Pales away the pyramidsrewriting 4500 years of historyraping the statue of libertyoutplays the acropolisinverting the fjordsinvades the... skyline todream its own existence in one single final word
Jotun
Can we identify themas the flint buried in our reptile skullsor the time-bomb coded in our dna
