about

The Second part of Hraun's odyssey "Songs of misery and redemption". Silent treatment tells the story of anger, inner struggles and coming to terms with pain. Ending the self pity ever so present on I can't believe it's not happiness.

Track Name: Dansa
Bráðum kemur betri tíð
með blóm í haga og bleikar kýr
sem dansa fram á nótt.

Við skulum vera góð og blíð,
því senn líður að sláturtíð
og dansa, það verður dansað.

Dansa, hvað er betra en að dansa?

Vetrarnóttin köld og dimm
en bráðum læðist sólin inn
og dansar fram á nótt.

Þá hverfa ljótar hugsanir
og hörfa allir skuggarnir
og dansa, þeir munu dansa.

Dansa, hvað er betra en að dansa?

Allt sem hvarf og allt sem dó
mun bráðum hulið undir snjó
sem dansar fram á nótt.

Allar sorgir, öll mín eymd
mun bráðum verða grafin gleymd
og dansa, við munum dansa.

Dansa, hvað er betra en að dansa.

English translation:
Soon we will have better times
with flowers in the fields and pink cows
that dance into the night.

We shall be good and sweet,
for soon it is the time for slaughter
and dance, there will be dance.

Dancing, what is better than dancing?
Dancing, what is better than dancing, tonight?

The winter's night is cold and dark
but soon the sun will sneak inside
and dance into the night.

Then all our terrible thoughts will dissappear
and all the shadows will retreat
and dance, they will dance!

Dancing, what is better than dancing?
Dancing, what is better than dancing tonight?

All that dissapeared and all that died
will soon be covered under snow
that dances into the night.

All the sorrows, all my misery
will soon be buried and forgotten
and dance, We will dance.

Dancing, what is better than dancing?
Dancing, what is better than dancing tonight?
Track Name: Silent Treatment
Morning grows near, oh I wish you were here,
as I toss and I turn in my bed.
I long for your touch and I miss you so much
and the silence has torn me to shreds.

But even in longing, I still feel the pronging
of misery's poisonous claws,
when in your perfection I catch my reflection
and in it my numerous flaws.


Babe, don't be afraid,
you know I love you with all of my heart.
Please listen to me,
don't let those wicked thoughts tear us apart.


You're brave and you're strong, I am timid and wrong,
you're a diamond and I am but coal.
You're the moon and the stars, I am ashes and tar,
you're a nightingale I am a mole.


Babe, don't think that way,
these are the demons that bite at your soul.
Please, come back to me,
you're losing your mind and you're out of control.


Well, this is my curse and it keeps getting worse
as I can't hold these bad thoughts at bay.
So I'll whine and I'll moan and I'll cry on the phone
'till I finally drive you away.

And then I will ride with my deflated pride
and the warmth of the blood in my shoe,
'till an ugly old scar and a broken guitar
will be all that reminds me of you.

Track Name: Hard things
Hard things you said to me,
of monsters beneath your sea
that lurk in the dark and deep abyss.
And hard things you told me of
a cold and a bitter frost,
that bites at your feet while we kiss.

And so we ran, away from the storm.
Your feet on my belly to keep me warm.
We have to learn, soon we'll both learn
to let go of our pain.

And to think I thought you needed time,
to think I thought you needed time,
to think I thought you needed time to think.

Warmth I can give to you,
to last us the whole night through.
I'll scatter your bad dreams away.
And all of our sorrows and all of our banes,
will make like the snowflakes and melt in the rain
and leave us the puddles to play.
And to think I thought you needed time,
to think I thought you needed time,
to think I thought you needed time to think.
Track Name: Glorious Catastrophe
I met you on a wednesday night
all ginger haired in evening lights
and how...
How my heart went mad,
And I sighed.
You knew before we kissed that we would
crash and burn and hiss and churn
and how...
How you bowed your head,
and you cried.

Oh how you cried,
and oh how I sighed.
If I had only known,
wouldn't have mattered either way.

Crush is such a fitting word
you crushed me like a little bird
and how...
How I gave my all,
how we tried.

Now all that's left for you and me
is a glorious catastrophy
and how...
How I bow my head.
And I cry...
Oh how I cry...
And oh, how we tried.
If I had only known,
wouldn't have mattered either way.

Could somebody reflect for me,
what's normal to expect from me.
From life, and from love and from all of the above.
How can I, how can I...
Possibly know, oh how things go?
If I had only known,
wouldn't have mattered either way.
Track Name: Komdu
Komdu í nótt, komdu til mín,
við skulum strjúka.
Haltu mér þétt, haltu mér fast,
Við skulum strjúka.

Komdu í nótt komdu til mín,
við skulum þjóta.
Og yfir stjörnubjartri nótt,
við megum fljóta.

Og ef að sólin kemur upp,
skulum við biðja hana að bíða aðeins lengur.
Við þurfum ekki að fara, því að ekkert liggur á
við lúrum lengur.

English translation:

Come tonight, come to me
we shall elope.
Hold me tight, hold me fast,
let us elope.

Come tonight, come to me,
let us fly,
and over a starbright night
we can float.

And if the sun comes up
we'll just ask it to wait a little longer.
We don't need to go,
because there's no hurry,
we'll cuddle a bit longer.
Track Name: Ease your mind
He left you by the dusty roadside
and all he gave you was a short kiss goodbye
your little heart almost burst into tears
when he turned and went on his way.
You could have had just five minutes more
but what the hell was he running for?
But all your sorrows and all your fears
will soon get swept away.

So ease your mind little girl, little girl,
just ease your mind little girl.
Ease your mind little girl, little girl,
It will all be fine if you ease your mind.

You left her by the dusty roadside
you could have given her a better goodbye you know but...
Overcome by shyness and insecurities
you just turned and went on your way.
You walked that road and you hitched a ride
“that beautiful girl will never be mine,” you thought but...
All your troubles and all your tears
will soon get swept away.

So, ease your mind little boy, little boy,
just ease your mind little boy.
Just, ease your mind little boy, little boy,
It will all be fine if you ease your mind.

Because you both know it
in your hearts,
that your souls were meant to meet.

So just, take it easy, it will all be fine,
let go of your worries and shine.
Ease your minds little ones, little ones.
It will all be fine, if you ease your minds.
Track Name: Það er ekkert "I" í Lið
Ég loga
og allt í kring er sviðin jörð.
Ég snýst í hring og horfi yfir brunninn svörð.
Ég snerti
og allt sem ég elska deyr.
Ég bráðna
og breytist í leir.

Það er ekkert "I" í lið,
það er ekkert "I" í lið,
og kona er ekki fjögurra stafa orð.

Ég verð að stíga á svið,
ég verð að stíga á svið,
og fremja á ykkur andlegt fjöldamorð.

Djöflumst saman krjúpum á kné.
Sögum niður lífsins tré

Chorus

Helmassaður
Elgtanaður
Übergraður
allt sem ég vil.

Ay ay ay
Un burro amoroso.
Ay caramba
Un burro amoroso.
Track Name: Thunderball
When I met you I was down,
I was bleeding I was beaten to the ground.
Nothing left for me to give,
but you took me all the same and gave me life.

You are so wonderful, my bloody thunderball,
love me so tenderly, but why does it bother me.
Why are we torn apart, why is this love so heart.
You gave your heart for free, but why does it bother me.

It is all as it should be,
there is touching of the souls and there is we.
But still there nags a wicked doubt,
and it whispers that from this love I should flee.

You are so wonderful, my bloody thunderball,
love me so tenderly, but why does it bother me.
Why are we torn apart, why is this love so heart.
You gave your heart for free, but why does it bother me

I need a timeout from this emotion,
there is no crime, just the price of devotion.

When I left you I was down,
Now I'm better but my fear's still around.
I can't shake this evil voice,
must we run again or in our love rejoice.

I need a timeout from this emotion,
there is no crime, just the price of devotion.

You are so wonderful, my bloody thunderball,
love me so tenderly, but why does it bother me.
Why are we torn apart, why is this love so heart.
You gave your heart for free, but why does it bother me.



I need a timeout from this emotion,
there is no crime, just the price of devotion.
Track Name: So let us drink
So let us drink!
So let us drink and all our troubles will sink,
with a ship that we sailed for seven years or more
and now it's crashed, smashed, thrashed upon a rocky shore!
And I ask, how could we wreck such a beautiful thing?

Two tears for my honey!
Three beers for the show!
I think it's time we let those bad feelings go.
But I am trapped in a cage filled with darkness and rage
and now I think it's time we turn around.

I am a mess!
I am a mess of insecurities and stress.
I am a wreck!
I am a wreck round trip to hell and back!
But there's a silver lining to my cloud,
I'm gonna drink all night!
I'm gonna shout it out loud!

Two tears for my honey!
Three beers for the show!
I think it's time we let those bad feelings go.
But I am trapped in a cage filled with darkness and rage
and now I think it's time we turn around.
How could we wreck such a beautiful thing?
