I often dream of huge numb buildings,
Jet-black sinister architecture
Being installed when nobody sees
Their appearance so sudden
That few would take notice

And when I wake up
I imagine being crushed by one
Imaginating it's weight, it's silence
And the absence of excuses for a havoced life
And the priviledge of a 22-kilometers tombstone

Jotun

A body of black
That carried no reflection
Defying it's own room
Un-earthly egg of decreation

There would be colonies
Mushroom-scattered forever out of context
Rising spores from a dying world
To pollute and chase away what's left

Sun-white pulverised desert stone
And serpentine lizard mouths
Pales away the pyramids
Rewriting 4500 years of history
Raping the Statue of Liberty
Outplays the acropolis
Inverting the fjords
Invades the N Y skyline to
Dream it's own existence in one single final word

Jotun

A body of black
That carried no reflection
Defying it's own room
Un-earthly egg of decreation

Can we identify them
As the flint buried in our reptile skulls
Or the time-bomb coded in our dna

Jotun

A body of black
That carried no reflection
Defying it's own room
Un-earthly egg of decreation
