about

Feathered Arms Malmö, Sweden

"That Swedes are not limited to dreamy pop and postrock, but also capable of some straight-ahead and dirty rock action is something we already learned from their colleagues ITATTWD. FEATHERED ARMS seem to be willing to push this approach even a little further."

Track Name: Lies! Lies! Lies!
the ugly truth is that you
keep fooling me even though
it is very clear that
you don’t want me to be near you
the ugly truth is that i
keep swallowing all your lies

the ugly truth is that we
never seem to succeed
at a small task called
communication
the ugly truth is that i
don’t want to see your lies

keep feeding me your nightmare
‘cause i don’t want to wake up

the ugly truth is that i
keep my head in the clouds
while you keep searching for
somebody else
the ugly truth it that you
keep making empty promises

keep feeding me your nightmare
‘cause i don’t want to wake up

keep fooling me baby
keep fooling me baby
keep fooling me honey
keep fooling me baby
Track Name: Vagabond Hills
the lonely vagabond leaves again
with a new route at his hands
just like a ghost he passed me by
without a trace or memory to get by
he walks off into the sun

oh he keeps walking
he keeps running from himself

the lonely vagabond walks again
leaving a chapter at its end
no excuses no goodbyes
without a trace or memory to get by
he walks off into the sun

oh he keeps walking
he keeps running from himself

i see the hills in his eyes
Track Name: Background Noise
while you were stating the obvious
i was busy making my way
the truth was hidden inside me
you had to throw it in my face

hey hey where do you get off?
hey hey throwing your words around!
slowly but surely you drift into my
background noise

while i was stating the obvious
you were busy getting around
new beginnings before the end
come on no need to pretend!
hey hey where do you get off?
hey hey throwing your words around

slowly but surely you drift into my
background noise
Track Name: It's Not Me, It's You
you feel like giving me your reasons
telling me it’s been too many seasons
well i guess you feel on top
but I’m telling you enough is enough
when we meet you want to say hello
well i don’t want to know
if life is good or bad
don’t want to hear about
your fucking band

you had your chance girlfriend
and it won’t come around again
‘cause your attitude is what
sent me walking
stop your talking!
said stop your talking!

hysteric with an empty head
you’ll keep running until you’re dead
like a hurricane in my head
you’ll keep walking until you’re dead
Track Name: Predator-Prey Equation
i’m stuck in your ways and
strong believes
so what’s the problem man?
you’ve got it your way
got it your way
got it your way

you’re taking the government and
you’re tearing it down
your opinion is spreading around
you’ve got it your way
got it your way
got it your way

one plus one will never equal three
in your equation there’s no room for me you
say i got to make it on my own
what if i don’t have the capacity?

i’m stuck in your self-destructive
ways so what’s the problem man?
you’ve got it your way
got it your way
got it your way

you’re putting our welfare on sale
you’re waiting for the system to fail
you’ve got it your way
got it your way
got it your way

one plus one will never equal three
in your equation there’s no room for me you
say i got to make it on my own
what if i don’t have the capacity?
Track Name: Reload/Recharge
we take the elevator
to see the sparks
she holds my hand
and begs me not to leave her

i’m sorry honey
but there’s no other way to help
there’s no other way
to save you from yourself

when she’s sound asleep
far away from her pain
they start to reload her batteries

i’ll give you all i have
i’ll be your savior and friend
over and over
over and over
i’ll catch you when you fall
Track Name: Contagious Feelings
little miss lies empty tonight
with nobody around
there’s no one to fight
“i’m seen therefore i am”
a philosophy she’ll die by

little miss lies sleepless tonight
and she hurts herself
when there’s no one in sight
“i cut therefore i am”
a philosophy she’ll die by

miss emotional goes crazy again
little miss is breaking again
and she screams and shouts
that she’s going insane
“i feel therefore i am”
a philosophy she’ll die by

little miss lies sleepless tonight
and she hurts herself
when there’s no one in sight
“i cut therefore i am”
a philosophy she’ll die by
Track Name: Anhedonia
she walks the streets at night
with her head in the air
don’t need no sleep no food
the voice is always there
she meets the devil at night
she knows how to start a fight

they keep telling her that
none of it’s for real
they keep telling her that
“this is not how it’s supposed to be”

paranoia is written all over her face
she gently strokes her hair
stares into thin air
a room filled with ambivalence
the smell of anxiety in the air

anhedonia

she is larger than life
and they all know her name
she knows they’re after her blood
thank god the pope is her son
she’s seen things no one else has done
she knows who lives behind the sun

they keep telling her that
none of it’s for real
they keep telling her that
“this is not how it’s supposed to be”

paranoia is written all over her face
she gently strokes her hair
stares into thin air
a room filled with ambivalence
the smell of anxiety in the air

anhedonia
Track Name: Sold Out!
years gone by and nothing’s the same
long gone are those glory days
all on top and nothing in the bottom
empty promises there is a lot of

“let’s start a bureaucracy” they said
there goes democracy down the drain
pointing their fingers and placing the blame
same old story but nothing’s the same
with an empty pocket the joke is on you!
with an empty pocket the joke is on you!
all on top and nothing in the bottom
empty promises there is a lot of

your welfare is on sale
everybody wants a piece of the cake
sold out! the government is for sale
everybody wants a piece of the cake

they say it’s all about you
your choice and your freedom

your welfare is on sale
everybody wants a piece of the cake
sold out! the government is for sale
everybody wants a piece of the cake
