Eric Strijbos A friend invited us to Arstidir's Utrecht concert and we hadn't heard anything from them ever before, but during the show we were completely won over. True musicians, great people and honest, original music. Thumbs up!

Cynthiafd I feel so much emotion when I listen to this bands music. I resonate with the sounds. Favorite track: You Again.

Sven B. Schreiber Oh my god... how is it possible that human minds are able to create such a beautiful music... The songs start out simple, building up a fascinating melodic and harmonic arc little by little - and just when you ask yourself "can a song be more wonderful than this", it really goes one better... Favorite track: Ró.

Mér líkar svo vel hvernig þú segir sögur þær flytja mig í annan heim Á fjarlægri slóð greini ekki lengur hljóðin né vindinn, reika þyngdarlaus Sólina hvergi sé öllum stundum gleymi mér himinhvelið yfirgef Óreiðan eykst stöðugt með niðurbroti það rennur allt sitt skeið Þá dreifist orkan í fögrum dansi handan tímans verður til geimryk sem umbreytist í ljós Sólina hvergi sé öllum stundum gleymi mér og hjartahólfin fyllast undur sem það er hið taumlausa afl sem sendir mig aftur heim

I thought you would stay here forever I don’t want to I don’t want you Through these days I could never be around you ‘Cause I don’t want you Charming as she was to me Drifted blindly This is how it feels? Took me so long to see If you sense this you’d better look around you think it out too Carry yourself in this manner What we will do is deny you Everything she used to be led me blindly Is this how it feels? Took me so long to see I tried to help with the things you liked but you took advantage of my precious time Those selfish games have made me think things twice before I lift a burden to ease your mind Things you said and the ways you lied made me read the writing and see the signs The clock is ticking in your inward mind Soon the flower fades and you’ve lost the time

Now I understand what it feels to wander in circles with fingers running through your hair I can clearly see what it is to me Waiting with someone who cares Come, come to me and say that you’re sorry I’m watching the lights go down I can barely see anything It tears me apart Drawn to the light Future is waiting When will I see you again? Run with the signs though body is aching Every number has shown that nobody’s hiding alone Run, run with me and tell me you want me Still watching the lights go down She talks to me Whispers so softly Drawn to the light Future is waiting When will I see you again? Run with the signs though body is aching Every number has shown that nobody’s hiding alone

In your blue dress dining fighting your lows while the true lies turn to unfold what you ought to feel In the blue light hiding trying to glow with the moon’s shine guiding you home where you need to be It’s time to turn things over time to find your way to seek me out and figure out your next play A cloud with silver lining turning to gold in this new sky wants you to know what you mean to me It’s time to turn things over time to find your way to seek me out and figure out your next play Sefur þú loksins nú værum svefni svo að bresti þessi brú sefur þú sefur þú

Um miðjan dag fann ég hana undir fagurri hulu gleymskunnar Og hjá henni einkenni sem ég falið hafði á þeim sama stað Vorið kveður vetur við munum gera betur með viskuna að vopni og vonum andvaka hugurinn Um stund hún megi hvíl’ í friði, þreytt andlitið undir fagurri hulu gleymskunnar Vorið kveður vetur við munum gera betur með viskuna að vopni og vonum að andvaka hugur minn deyð’ ekki drauminn þinn

Enn ein krísan, eitthvað vantar Verð að brúa lífs míns skarð Innra tómið stækkar enn Lít um kring, fólkið skortir Friðþægingin kostar sitt Í þeirri trú ég kaupi friðinn Taktu’ ekki gæðum þess veraldlega sem þinni trú Menn verð’ að rækta andann, líka þú Ég vakna af værum blundi Nýt lífsins hér og nú Í hverju skrefi sekk ég dýpra Undankoma engin er Staðnæmist og hugsa málið Er ég búinn’ að missa tökin Mánuðirnir sliga mig Áhyggjurnar fylla tómið Taktu’ ekki gæðum þess veraldlega sem þinni trú Menn verð’ að rækta andann, líka þú Ég vakna af værum blundi Nýt lífsins hér og nú

Sharing body heat when it was cold Letting go when we wanted to be held United by thoughts we could not understand I picked out a silly name the only one that would rhyme when I really wanted to call you mine Humbled by the fact that it wasn’t our time I held a rifle it ricocheted in my hands I was marked by the cannon out there on the sands In the last free place In the presence of your grace Wounded by the light of a soaring fireball With cool hearts racing within Your last touch is still on my skin I picked out a silly name the only one that would rhyme when I really wanted to call you mine Humbled by the fact that it wasn’t our time I held a rifle it ricocheted in my hands I was marked by the cannon out there on the sands I held a rifle it ricocheted in my hands I was marked by the cannon out there on the sands My mind still wanders and if I can’t find my way back I will always treasure the memory of your beautiful face

Tilfinning og kuldi inn við bein ég bað þig um að koma með í sólarhring sem virtist eilífð heil lét bíða lengi eftir sér Á meðan blómin ekki fölna og það styttir ekki upp um mig leikur fossaniður Ég skil að vissu leyti en að öðru ekki neitt þig elta skal ég niður Sjálfið dregið úr öskunni enn á móti blæs Ef fengi ég að sjá þinn hugarheim þitt silfurskin

This will be my final statement so pay no heed to the former things I’ve said Life has taught me how to be humble and thankful for everything All the ones my mind has touched I bid you all farewell It’s your turn now Shine Reciting childhood rhymes All I have is time And time is getting old And I’m getting old Three long weeks and two more years to follow I’m counting sleepless stars outside my window I’m reaching for that lonely red body Oh God I miss the sound of wind blowing Now it’s only silence I’ll miss your planet It’s your turn now Shine It’s your turn now Shine

If love had the answers why aren’t you here? This truth as an obsession had almost disappeared But when I see you alone far away from home and I wonder why I feel like everything is turning in my head It’s you again Taken by the unknown Heart into stone Never cease to wonder why and everything keeps turning in my head It’s you again This solitude I found No more voices ringing in my ears A world without a sound Just the silent music of the spheres If I had the answers you should be here (And still this unresolved progression had never seemed so real) But when I see you alone far away from home and I wonder why I feel like everything is turning in my head It’s you again Taken by the unknown Heart into stone Never cease to wonder why and everything keeps turning in my head It’s you again

A strange ship navigates the ebb and flow remembers mysteries that time had left alone You reach out your arms but your hands aren’t your own Not everything you feel can be seen but the feeling lasts so long Searching every corner of your mind I reach out, fathoming the shape of time If you see (how far) the waves have drifted from the source then you’ll know the expanding nature of our course You reach out your arms but your hands aren’t your own Not everything you feel can be seen but the feeling lasts so long Every day the space between everyone is unfolding who can see where we’ll end? You reach out your arms but your hands aren’t your own Not everything you feel can be seen but the feeling lasts so long (Spiral arms unfolding, strengthening their hold on me) But every time you reached out your arms your hands always knew it’s everything that you can’t see which pulls me back to you
