Philophobia

The fear of falling in love or emotional attachment

COPENHAGEN (listen) (lyrics)

I wrote this song at a time, where I really needed a change in my life. I felt like I was stagnating, that I needed to just pull up my roots and get the hell out of my comfort zone. A week after I wrote it, I actually quit my job and apartment and decided to move to Copenhagen, which is why the title ended up being just that. I'm still wondering, if writing the song was the thing that pushed me 'over the edge' :)

YOU LAY LOW (listen) (lyrics)

I was never really good at confrontations. Whenever I have something I want to say to people, I don't, and write a song about instead :) This song I wrote, because I had a friend who just kept being an... asshole (Sorry..) Didn't have the guts to tell this person to chill out and start treating other people with respect. And so I wrote You Lay Low instead. 

WINTER ARRIVED (listen) (lyrics)

A song about leaving someone, not because you don't love them anymore, but because the love brings you too much pain.
Fun fact: Everlasting and Winter Arrived is about the same romance, just a little time apart. 

EVERLASTING (listen) (lyrics)

The title refers to stagnation, the lack of progression. In a way, the song is about rumination; to regurgitate half-cooked food up and chew it thoroughly and then starting all over again. The song describes a moment in a relation, where both parties should quit that stupid romance, cause it's futile. 

STORM (listen) (lyrics)

I wrote it on a harsh January day, right after I moved to Copenhagen. It's a song littered with ambivalence and thoughts of love and solitude.

About sinking so low that you almost drowned, and are yet to decide whether you want to change course towards the surface or continue drowning.

the condition suffered by a lunatic

OH MIGHTY COLD (listen) (lyrics)

For me, there's a lot of layers in this song. But I think it's predominantly about deciding to leave it all up to faith. Acknowledging that you cannot control every single matter in life, sometimes you just have to look at the moon and say "do your thing"

FLOATING (listen) (lyrics)

A song about my psychosomatic cleansing, my attempt to let my energies flow freely, to accept myself and take responsibility for my own life. I want to live in covenant with myself and nature, which this song is about, I suppose :)

WOEBEGONE (listen) (lyrics)

Wanting something so bad, that you'd literally risk your life to get it. But it's also about wanting something so bad, that you actually pull your shit together for a moment, in the pursuit of something meaningful. 

VAGRANT (listen) (lyrics)

I wrote vagrant out of anger. It is a song about how easily one can both feel lost, and become lost. About if human beings only have social value based on our materialistic function, and not simply the fact that we are sentient people of flesh and blood. Are we all up for disposal as soon as we break?

WAITING FOR WATER (listen) (lyrics)

This song was written at a very strange and very rough time I was going through. I'd just gotten 'away' from a very bad situation I was in, but I hadn't gotten anywhere. Like there had just been a raging storm, and everything was dead quiet, and the danger was over. But there was nothing. Nothing, but waves rolling in and out. Like I had conquered nothing, cause I ran instead of fighting.
