about

Isbjörg Denmark

In Isbjörg's universe, creativity is key. The music ranges from quiet, atmospheric passages, over grand, epic choruses, to the heavy hitting and even chaotic moments. The music is held together by the distinct and dynamic use of piano as both lead and supporting instrument in the quiet as well as the heavy parts. ... more

Track Name: Cross
It’s time to cross the line
The times are changing
We will follow if we must
The ice is melting
now it’s time
To cross the line
Track Name: Glacier
Fallen from a feather
You will make a living making us all cry
Soon enough

Body is like a glacier
Heart is like a sun,
Spreading it’s cancer
You are lost, just like us

You are my glacier when things are falling apart
A frozen incline, so beautiful inside
With you I can reach the stars

Slowly learning
To freeze is to retain
And I can’t let go
So peculiar, these sunrays in my veins
Can’t get across
But I can melt my frozen shell and sink in

You are my glacier when things are falling apart
Your heart is a sun, with so many ways to shine
With you I can reach the stars

Hope leaves us
I need a safer protection
Don’t give up
I need someone to take care of you
I’ll follow ‘till the thawing ends
Don’t look down
(Don’t turn around
We can’t climb back down)
I can almost glimpse the top now

I stand on your summit
I stand here with a plea:
‘Don’t burn out’

You are my glacier but you are falling apart
Your heart is a sun, so beautiful inside
With you I have reached the stars
So beautiful inside
You’re so beautiful inside
Falling apart
Track Name: Collective Egoism
Got to insist you’re dismissed,
infested, broken down, just find a place you can hide
Big fish eat the smaller when they bargain the price
Don’t get your hopes up man ‘cause we will eat you alive

Go ahead and take a bite, but leave the rest for us
Go ahead and name your price, think twice

‘Cause we will eat you alive

So, when another one falls, dividing us all
Unending felicity will make us one
And still we’ll survive
Immortal, it’s so easy to conform
We know everything
you can’t win them all, but we can

Someday you will find out what you are worth
Don’t sell the skin before the kill
Collective egoism is the perfect crime

And we will eat you alive

So when another one’s gone, united we fall
Infertile, but nevermind, we’ll still be one,
and still we’ll survive
Immortal, so take a step inside this storm
We know everything you can’t hide them all
Track Name: Marooned
Adaptability will hide me in colorless times
When blue reigns in my eyes the sky sleeps and tethers my will

Colors will feed on me
Breaching will never be easy
Walls arise again
But the sky awakes when it’s over

I’ll wait until it’s over
I’ve got to breach a wall
Here in the darkness I am weak but safe

I hate to see you suffer
How do I take you with me now
Comforting my arms are
as tides embracing earth

How should I have known know that bonds could be so frail
Cunning illusions make nothing prevail
But sooner or later they will fade away
These walls are mine

Why do I delay
Why give up halfway
With only one to blame

An isolated circle, in a world of squares
Playfully entangled, painfully engaged

Does it show, I have nothing left to lose
Cunning illusions make me confused
Sooner or later they will break away
These walls are mine

In the end I know we’re all marooned
We’re doomed

Do you see what you need to see?
Do you find what you seek to find?
Do you cry when you need to cry?
Can you let it die?

These walls are
These walls are mine

Shrouded fragility
The walls broke when I let them fall
And I let them fall
Brooding eyes was on me before I gave in

Colors still feed on me
But now I have ways to repent them
The tethering blue brings us closer
But the sky is grey when it’s over us
