Heaven must be an iron rose | a fanmix for The Capitol


Listen on:
SPOTIFY | 8TRACK

01. Horn of plenty |JAMES NEWTON HOWARD / WIN BUTLER & RÉGINE CHASSAGE
(The national anthem of Panem)

Oh Horn of Plenty
Oh Horn of Plenty for us all!
And when we raise the cry
The brave shall heed the call
And we shall never falter
One Horn of Plenty for us all!


02. Party like it’s 1929 | THOMAS DYBDAHL
So  maybe we’re not that smart,
but we can still beat them
cause tonight we’re gonna party like it’s 1929

It don’t matter what they say
cause we’ve all been had before
it don’t matter what we do in the end
Cause no matter how deep we sink
there’s always someone to blame
too spoiled to feel ashamed,
we waltz right in

Honey don’t mind the weight on your shoulders
Honey don’t mind  whatever you read


03. Blind | HERCULES AND LOVE AFFAIR (Frankie Knuckles remix)
As a child I knew
That the stars could only get brighter
Then we could get closer
Leaving this darkness
Behind

Now that I'm older
The stars shed light upon my face
But when I found myself alone
I feel like I,
I am blind


04. City With No Children | ARCADE FIRE
I feel like I've been living in
A city with no children in it
A garden left for ruin by a millionaire inside of a private prison

You never trust a millionaire quoting the sermon on the mount
I used to think I was not like them but I'm beginning to have my doubts
My doubts about it


05.  A Beginner's Guide to Destroying the Moon | FOSTER THE PEOPLE
I won't find out all the dirty little things that you've done
But I will try
I'm coming for you giants and you liars and your chariots of fire
You charmers with your anecdotes have started to show your true colors
(...)
We've changed the dreamers and the preachers and the wise men on the hill
To concrete stepford smilers terrified to lose their power and control
Yeah we've been crying for a leader to speak like the old prophets
The blood of the forgotten wasn't spilled without a purpose,
or was it?
(....)
And think freely to smash the wall of apathy
Stop your self-importance and lift the weight off somebody else
Yeah you'll never be whole, yeah you'll never be whole
Until you lose control
And stop drinking the wine that's been dripping
From the lips of the gluttons and envying their bloody teeth


06. I Think Ur A Contra| VAMPIRE WEEKEND
My revolution thoughts
Live in lies of desire
I wanna trace them to the source
And the wire
But it's not useful now
Since we both made up our minds
You gotta watch out for yourself
So will I

I think you're Contra
I think that you lie
Don't call me Contra
Till you've tried

You wanted good schools
And friends with pools
You're not a Contra
You wanted Rock' n' Roll,
Complete control
Well, I don't know


07.  Super Rich Kids | FRANK OCEAN feat. Earl Sweatshirt
Too many bottles of this wine we can’t pronounce
Too many bowls of that green, no Lucky Charms
The maids come around too much
Parents ain’t around enough
Too many joy rides in daddy’s Jaguar
Too many white lies and white lines
Super rich kids with nothing but loose ends
Super rich kids with nothing but fake friends


08. Clowns | GOLDFRAPP
Only clowns would play with those balloons
What d'ya wanna look like Barbie for
Dear oh Lord, it's easy

Roasting, roasting, roasting deed
Mahagony
Titties that live on and on and on and on


09. Flashing Lights | KANYE WEST
She don't believe in shootin' stars
But she believe in shoes and cars
Wood floors in the new apartment
Couture from the store's departments


10. I Had This Thing |RÖYKSOPP feat. Jamie Irrepressible
I had this thing to call my own
Just one slip and it was gone

A minor flaw and then it fell
I brought this house down on myself

I didn't know just what I'd done
I didn't know just what I'd done

I don't remember anymore what I used to be
Where is the quiet piece of home where I could breathe?
(…)
I'm so confused, I cannot see
This wave of guilt is drowning me

It feels like blood is on my hands
I'd give it all for a second chance


11. Stockholm Syndrome | CLMD Feat. Kish & Frøder
Standing on the platform
Blinded by the city lights
Oh, still I'm so drawn
Sweep me back into your night

Oh, I got the Stockholm Syndrome
Everywhere I turn I see places where we fell in love
Oh, I got the Stockholm Syndrome
Everywhere I go it's the city I keep thinking of


12. The Suburbs | MR. LITTLE JEANS (Arcade fire cover)
You always seemed so sure
That one day we'd be fighting
In a suburban war
Your part of town against mine
I saw you standing on the opposite shore

But by the time the first bombs fell
We were already bored
We were already, already bored



13. Justice Delivers Its Death | SUFJAN STEVENS
Silver and gold, silver and gold
Everyone wishes for it
How do you measure its worth?
Just by the pleasure it gives here on earth.

Oh, I'm getting old
Oh, I'm getting old
Everyone wishes for youth
How have I wasted my life?
Trusting the pleasure it gives here on earth


14. The Silicon Veil | SUSANNE SUNDFØR
This is a retirement
From plumbing the veins of rats and kings
Let the stars be my eyes then
Unchain the knuckles and latches

Beauty is poisonous
Disruptive
Heaven must be an iron rose
Oh, let me in, let me out,
Let me in, let me out!


15. If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next | MANIC STREET PREACHERS
Bullets for your brain today
But we'll forget it all again
Monuments put from pen to paper
Turns me into a gutless wonder
(...)
Gravity keeps my head down
Or is it maybe shame
At being so young and being so vain
(...)
And if you tolerate this
Then your children will be next

My easter eggs

Every year I make an Easter egg after one or two famous art works and put my cat into the painting. I sounds stupid but it’s my tradition and it really is very fun to make them. So here they are, all of my eggs :)

My new journal


I’ve made a journal since I’ve decided that my lurking has to end. What’s the point in making icons if no one can see them? So now I’m here trying to figure out how this works…
