Morten- This song has a primal feel. Its importent i think for any band to fight technicalities and let the instict run the show. This is a vital track for the band and its intresting that we have ended up using a version we cut live. Iam very proud of this track Angel in the snow Morten- This is one of my favorites on the album, its a song you just want to hug.
Locust Morten- This song is a film. It blew me away.. Iam still out there. Paul- Most of our songs work better with the lights turned out. This is definitely one of them. Its probably my favorite on the album. Magne- Making a record is a lot like mixing colors on a canvas. This track has a ritch texture and a very abstract solo section. Lie down in darkness Paul- I always found it inhibithing to do guitar overdubs in the studio, with everybody standing around.
So halfway througt the recording of this album, i took a few tapes to New Work. It was great, i felt like fifteen again at my first studio session. Its a method that worked on a lof of songs including this one. Magne- We discovered the sound of the chamberlain on this record, its a wonderful vintage keyboard that kept overheating. Iam in love. Its full of undercurrents and is a very importent song to me, although i cant really explain why. Paul- I like this song a lot, its both slow and fast at the same time.
Magne plays great piano and i also like the fact that no two verses are alike. I wrote the lyrics on my honeymoon and got the title from a candy store across the street from my hotel. Lamb to the slaughter Morten- A rare piece of about deprived innocence. Its got a strong melody and possible the best riff of the album. Magne- This is the story of my life. A very heavy waltz. Between your mama and yourself Paul- We did this one just to clear the air.
It was fun to write and to play. With the lyrics i had a sort of graduate scenario in mind. A girlfriend with a good looking mother. Memorial beach Paul- Memorial beach is the name of an actual place near Sarasota, Florida.
We where just driving around and happend to pass by and the name got me started. The tune itself actully told me where to go with the words.
Magne- I like the dialogue the guitars and the piano, a nice simple feel. It remind me of the kind of Music Paul and i used to play a long time ago. Morten- I feel i know this song all my life. Its got every reason to be the title track. For me, its a classic. Carlox , Sammy Waslow , Sesam and 4 others like this. For me they had a image problem around this time.
Never really clothes models per se, but seemed to look their best in with their come back album MEMS. Last edited: Aug 18, Surly , Aug 18, Havoc and D.

One to the nightfall One to the stars One to the haunted fools we are One to remember One to recall One to acknowledge Just how sweet it was, yeah. Just about a month ago You make a promise Ain't that so Yes, you did now Into this howling night.
I wouldn't lie, babe - not again It's such a crime To while away my time Little babe. One to remember One to recall One to acknowledge Just how sweet it was We were so happy We were okay We let our good thing, honey Just slip away.
