Thank God there’s only one of you

I’m striving for a better form of survival

THE MEANS AREN’T AVAILABLE without the threat

I finally understand what could make a man run

Chasing my tail, I have it now

SO MUCH WORSE than first thought

Split my breast plate and pry me open like a casket gasping for death

Allow the curious sun into the cavity and relieve me of privacy

As I’m peeling off my scalp

Bloodsteam rushes into God’s eyes and clots his vision

He pleads,  “No!”

I reply, “Just wipe your eyes, and continue to watch me as I disassemble the prison you’ve built for me

You’re going pale and clammy

I have never seen a God vomit So just puke!”

Disinfect the soul

If sunlight is the greatest disinfectant

Then I’m sure that this will hurt

Swelling, seizing, shucked raw and exposed

I disinfect the soul

I’m down in a hole but far from a grave

I’m down in a hole but far from a grave

Standing skinless I’m ready to behave

Now I’m in control

Disinfect the soul

Now I’m in control

Disinfect the soul

Now I’m in control

Disinfect the soul

Now I’m in control

Time to disinfect the soul

I have always been afraid to bleed out at the wrong time

Always afraid to improve myself

Always afraid to have a higher goal

Forgoing the whole, now I’m in control

I disinfect the soul

Ripping out the bones

One by one

I toss them aside

Observe me

Pick at me

Stomp on me

I am everything I need to be

Finally suffering carefree

Blood and guts

Om Ulf Backstrøm (5219 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
