Dunno about hard to listen to, but Quiet World is kinda suiting for me to listen to at the moment, working 8 hours/week, and the rest of the time I just sit around here playing gamecube and having an occasional "fika" hahaha.
And I recognize myself a bit too good when listening to "Clean Today" as well.
it would be a few of the songs on LFDGD- a friend and myself were trying to get/stay off drugs for the first time in years and years, and that album had just come out, and the whole thing was eerily close to my feelings at the time- especially "Clean today" I still get a shiver now and then, as it brings those feelings back when I hear the songs....
who could call my name without regretting
who could promise to never destroy me
tonight my head is full of wishes
and everything I drink is full of her
I just thought about it a bit more and realised that this is how I feel if I'm drunk and bored. I start to think about how I let my girlfriend down and went drinking with my pals (she not likey). The guilt really hits at that point but a couple of beers more and I forget it
"let´s stay here for a while
is something gonna happen today?"
Both "At last" and "Saw you Drown", fantastic lyrics written by Anders!
"i should be in your sight but you didn't really notice
that i've left and gone away"
I am nothing( all the lyrics)
sometimes a start for others
I don't know the word beginning"
"I'd like to try to live my life again
I'd like to see where I was going wrong"
oh well I could go on quoting so many lyrics, basically all the lyrics up till Last Fair Deal Gone Down.
I´m not so touched by the lyrics of Viva, but all the other lyrics describe my mood perfectly!
and it is strange because I have never been into a "break-up" situation, so I relate more from a kind of "existential depression", kind of how it is difficult to comunicate with other people, what is wrong with me and so on...
and then now this title" the great cold distance" seems to describe perfectly the distance between people in this modern society...I perfectly relate to this.
