about

Firetop Mountain Oslo, Norway

Though they list Death Cab For Cutie, Radiohead, The Lemonheads and The Cure among the groups that have influenced them, Firetop Mountain are true originals. Their sound is an infectiously melodic combination of resonant guitars, frenetic percussion and arresting harmonies, punctuated by lyrics that are at once dreamy and emotionally haunting. Romanticized surrealism that you can dance to. ... more

Track Name: All The Best Ideas
All the best ideas they need some time to grow / All the best ideas they need to be shown some love / oh oh oh / I guess you know / I guess you know / In these modern times we move by the speed of light / In these modern times we´ve run out of decent rhymes / I´m pretty sure that Dylan never felt he was too preoccupied / and didn´t have to check his e-mail every second line / So when you fight the empty page, son / grab your pen / and make it write / make it write / No one´s ever born a poet / and you won´t be one overnight / overnight / oh oh oh oh oh / All the best ideas / all the best ideas / all the best ideas they need to be shown some love / All the best ideas / all the best ideas / all the best ideas they need to be shown some love / aaaaah
Track Name: Fearless
I recall the time when I / found out the sun will die / in a billion years or so / It made me realize / the thing that we call life / eventually will end / It came as a shock that day / just ask my dad he´ll say / I looked like I´d just seen a ghost / I heard it loud and clear / As we drove down the mountainside / I think we both knew that I / would never ever be the same / Now even to this day / at times when my mind strays / I feel that chill run down my spine / Then you showed up / and made it stop / You knew just what I´ve been thinking / I don´t know much but I know enough / I fear death less when I´m with you / I guess I´m still that child / when I close my eyes / I still dream of the sun and earth colliding
Track Name: Paper Planes
Sometimes I feel like giving up / it´s all too much / when hands they keep on pulling me / from left and right / I would love / a vacation in the sun / somewhere it´s safe / from guns / blinking lights and old re-runs / just take me back / to the place where I belong / Make me a paper plane / so we can sail on the winds again / pretend we´re not grown up men / with cares in our lives / Suit me up / corporate grey and dull / nametag on display / as if / someone would really care / to know my name / These walls / they shrink / this tie will slowly kill / I need to escape / blazing guns / will you be waiting there for me still / I´m coming home / to the place where I belong / Make me a paper plane / so we can sail on the winds again / pretend we´re not grown up men / with cares in our lives / Hey man get your act together / you have had your fun / nothing good ever last forever you´ve got / nowhere to run / Make me a paper plane / so we can sail on the winds again / pretend we´re not grown up men / with cares in our lives
Track Name: Everyone Loves a Witch Hunt
I woke up one morning / to a world spun out of control / We had consumed all the media / like hungry wolves given a fresh bone / Every / every / everyone loves a witch hunt / Best of / best of / best of all it´s for free / Every / every / everyone loves a witch hunt / Bring your / bring your / pitchforks to the scene / and let us bathe in debauchery / I woke up one morning / and let the truth shine through the blinds / The church bells are ringing loud / as I join up with the crowd / to chase the monster out of town / fists raised high we scream heavy metal nothings / Don´t know what you believe in / but I hope you´re keeping score / Don´t know what you believe in / but I hope you feel remorse
Track Name: Spiders
There are spiders in the room / hanging from the ceiling / eating roaches from the floor / can you hear them screaming / is this some poor analogy / for the life in the city / then I wish this song to be over soon / ´cause it scares the living shit out of me / There are spiders down the hall / there are spiders that creep and crawl / and I wish I´d never left the comforts of my home / This is not a hotel / it´s a fucking deathtrap / Wish I´d never come here / and there is no money-back-guarantee / I fear the spiders / of the Amazon / I fear the spiders / of the Amazon / If I keep my eyes shut / maybe they´ll all soon be gone / And I´ve tried to call for help / but no one´s coming / my cell phone´s dead / and I assume / this is the end
