Riot 00:49
I just got back from the doctor’s office It seems like I always get there after I am sick My doctor was sick so I had this other Guy, I liked him He didn’t try to make small talk when he was up my shirt
We can’t avoid them, so we charge head first blind and beautiful There’s no way they can steal this feeling from us The feeling of knowing we are gold and our hands are glowing for the righteous causes and the right reasons The only secret that’s left is the one we are creating right now The clandestine fashion we are building is slowly taking over their heads and feet. We can cut our own nails, we can eat colorful things We can dance to the original glam blast We can play for hours, and then play for days We are beautiful sugary youngsters There’s nothing to stop us now And if you don’t fall in love now, we never will We can’t wait to adore this culture that we hate This is the beginning You are reading the letters, the words This is for you in the springtime The secret of you and I Now
The War Song 00:53
Throughout history, suspicion has always bred conflict. The real conflict, though, resides in people’s hearts. This conflict has just begun.
It was the ordinary youths With extraordinary minds Who saved the world
Gmin 02:14
Whale Escape 03:29
As it turns out, I do have a human heart. Because I get a bad feeling in my chest, just left of centre, when I think about you. I miss you terribly
And listened to a cosy round of self-congratulation. (Aren't we doing well, Um?) Adapting. Adjusting. Coming to terms. And once again, I am shocked that we have not discussed a serious attempt to locate Earth and return there." "Simmonds. We can't afford to waste our time on something scientifically impossible." "Impossible? The impossible takes just a little longer, that's all, Commander." Commissioner, we can't encourage false hope. All of us have had to come to terms with life here on Alpha." Hope is the key to morale. We should maintain it, we should exploit it, ruthlessly, in order to achieve what should be our sole objective, going home."
Inside 04:22
Since we’re feeling so unkind Since we’re lost inside our mind Now it’s time for something real


Thirteen Light Bulbs
A representation of Lena Dekatria, found in a secret cave where members of the "Order of the 13 Dimensions" used to meet during the 1940's on Antiterra. She was supposed to be a parallel traveller, who was regularly visiting the 13th known dimensions using her hand-made light bulbs. Members of the Order dedicated their lives to locate the lost electrical spheres.

"À ne pas manquer, le duo (swedish) death polka. Nouvelle sensation de l'heure, la créature se prête à une pop minimaliste peu conventionnelle." Isabelle Porter, Le Devoir, 8 Septembre 2005

"...mention spéciale à (Swedish) Death Polka, qui a agréablement surpris le public avec son spectacle alliant montage vidéo, violoncelle, numéro de danse techno et guitare acoustique, non sans rappeler par moment le plus-que-génial Bright Eyes." Mélodie Houde, Septembre 2005

"(swedish) Death Polka curiosité canadienne incontournable. Ces talentueux musiciens sont compositeur d'obscurité avec un médaillon de contradiction, comme le nom du projet, la polka en moins" Radio-Canada NMC Hotlist, Février 2004

"..there is a sort of danger in presenting the audience with such a wide variety of things to swallow. But that's a risk that (swedish) Death Polka seems willing to take: long live the destruction of genres." Shmat Records, January 2005

"Call it chemistry, call it genius, or just call it history's revenge on passionless pop. The (swedish) Death Polka is here." NZ Tree House, March 2005

"I find they occupy some strange middle ground between Weimar Republic cabaret music and modern lo-fi indie pop, with a healthy taste for Ennio Morricone soundtracks and Tom Waits. Sounds like a healthy chunk of my record collection boiled down and presented with a dash of visual flair, what's not to love?" Stephen Cooke, The Halifax Herald, April 21 2005
