lyrics

Uppsala Universitet
This is the place where my best friends met
Shout out like you’re from flogsta
I don’t know what I’d ever do without you

1st Verse

Concentrated in one place
Everyone I ever loved,
And I love this place
Just because you paint a lane green don’t make it a cycle zone
just cos you say its over doesn’t mean it is though
I don’t continue to hold hope
I cling to men like dreams I pour too much of myself into that fein

You’re the only one who defines what defines you, so
Why’d I feel like id found part of me inside the find that implied you
I see a future that you cant see, I feel like a freak
Engine running, Remember the masculinity of your room
Records stacked high for the record

Shaken body
Thoughts disturbed
Yet I hardly act perturbed
One day, we’ll be interred
that does not deter my determination
I refer to my broken determined nation

Cos inside we’re the same same but different
Like an Australian green, and a conservative swede
The footpaths in my mind are lined with gold and not dog shit.

2nd Verse

This ultimate mark of maturity,
not knowing what they want
but doing what they should be,

for now you stay afloat
I know, what its like
Living in limbo

They told you to accept it
Hard when you feel rejected
My land infested with a sexist perspective
And its hard to digest it
Hard when you feel rejected,
Not receptive they said that its all in my head
When men slapped and grabbed and spat in broad daylight
Too shocked to speak forgot to bleed I carried on like ‘I’m alright’

What was strength and unequivocal in the dark night,
is now spent and trivial in the harsh daylight.
So watch the gap,
because you might fall through the cracks.


3rd Verse

The nights not getting younger
Time to drop the pretense before we fall for slumber
take the best parts and leave the rest.
gamla friend, förlåt
I must confess jag talar inte svenska
i know by now I should but you don’t understand
deras engelska is too good,

but you’re here now, so keep your head down
as the days fly past
are you jättebra?
if I’m honest are you yet to get that far?

at least the first six months
they want your blood
feeling worthless because you can’t find a stunt

We’re just colonies of ants
Building skyscrapers from the dirt
Termites on short term leases
Mixing our spit for what its worth

but things could have been worse
life is to waste not to be perfect,
love is a chase not a rehearsal,
love is a place and not a person.
