We the north


Another song from the project. Lyrics by Johan Sandström, but all the rest (music, song, production) by Tommy Jensen.

 

We the north

The story of the north
A seeping flow
A one-way road
By truck, river, train
Left is what was
All else down the drain

Who decides, who says
Who knows
Who stays
To find out, to decide
The strategy of the rest
Reaping the one-way tide

It’s not the rock
It’s not the river
It’s not the mountain
It’s not the tree
It’s the things in between
That the rest don’t see
So don’t blame the rock, river,
mountain and the tree

The questions to the north
It’s power over words
It’s power over distance
The method of the rest
No room for resistance

It’s not the rock
It’s not the river
It’s not the mountain
It’s not the tree
It’s the things in between
That the rest don’t see
So don’t blame the rock, river,
mountain and the tree

Listen,
Iron, power, tree
Listen
How do you feel
Listen
Spirit, flower, bee
Listen
An impossible deal
Repeat,
Iron, power, tree
Repeat,
How do you feel
Repeat,
Spirit, flower, bee
Repeat,
An impossible deal

Show me the border
Show me the line
Between you and me
Between past and now
It’s an invisible divide
Making worlds collide

It’s not the rock
It’s not the river
It’s not the mountain
It’s not the tree
It’s the things in between
That the rest don’t see
So don’t blame the rock, river,
mountain and the tree
