Triangle Walks
Fever Ray Lyrics


An apple and a berry plant
Comes with a house
On the grass, who is that
To come by my house

Stands outside my window
Sucking on the berries
And eats us out of house and home
Keeping us awake, keeping us awake
Can I come over, I need to rest
Lay down for a while
Disconnect the night was so long
The day even longer
Lay down for a while recollect

Five a.m. out again
Triangle walks
Magpies, I throw sticks at them
They laugh behind my back

Getting a feeling
Maybe I will dream again
Having that feeling
When there's no one awake
No no one awake

Can I come over, I need to rest
Lay down for a while
Disconnect the night was so long
The day even longer
Lay down for a while recollect

An apple and a berry plant
Comes with a house
On the grass
Who is that
To come by my house

Stands outside my window
Sucking on the berries and
Eats us out of house and home
Keeping us awake
Keeping us awake

Can I come over, I need to rest
Lay down for a while
Disconnect
The night was so long
The day even longer
Lay down for a while
Recollect

Five AM
Out again
Triangle walks
Magpies, I throw sticks at them
They laugh behind my back

Getting a feeling
Maybe I will dream again
Having that feeling
When there's no one awake
No no one awake 

Can I come over, I need to rest
Lay down for a while
Disconnect
The night was so long
The day even longer
Lay down for a while
Recollect

From Twitter (Ask-Fever Ray-Session):

Questioner: "What are you talking about in triangle walks? the years have passed and I still can not understand the song very well"

Fever Ray: "there was a walk i had with the stroller when my kids where babies. from the house, to the first street lamp, to the first tree in the park, and then back."

Thanks for that. It makes the song easier to understand. To me it's all about having a baby. Eating you out of house and home, keeping you up, needing rest, etc. Gorgeous song. It feels so lonely.

I find Karen's music addictive. It's almost a drug to me. It does something to me that I cant explain.

There haven't been many albums that have flat out hynotized me. This and Aenima by Tool have that distinct pleasure. Amazing music.

Veronica Lynn

Her music has got me through some of the worst shit..

This song reminds me of when my children were born. So tiring sometimes. Triangle walks makes me think of holding a baby and pacing the floor.

@Big Dave I think for some parents who appreciate melancholy a little, this album is very liberating. The tiredness, the fraying of nerves and time feeling like it's bending at those awful hours. Worry. All of the things you can't bring to a "Gymboree", haha. There's so much love in parenting but moments like this and "Concrete Walls", "If I Had a Heart", are real, too. Thanks for the shout!

Dave Horn

@Anime Bunny Really?! Me as well. This album was a fave of mine when my eldest was born,real 3 AM stuff,trying to settle her again. :)

Driving late at night becomes so surreal when you play this
