about

Niedra Oslo, Norway

Niedra is a threepiece from Norway and Russia that makes music in a landscape where diy avantgarde meets heavy punk and surrealism shakes hands with dadaism. Loud in a way that speaks to the skeleton and heavy like the weight of time.

Track Name: The Guilt
indifference reigns
not every day one will get a chance
to proclaim black for white

turn off your mind
in this silent world
as we sit and watch the dawn

darkest days
yet another time
and we're all to blame
it's your guilt and mine
it's your guilt

and it's mine
we just didn't care
silent we stayed

they've always been there
and they would give it all

for the new dark ages to come
the sickest most loudmouth prick
on their shoulders they gonna lift
and then bring him right to the throne

we had it coming
each on in here has been warned
not every day a psycho gets a chance, no
long they've been waiting
but now its their time
that wave's hard to stop
the scum will rise to the top
and you have been warned

we don't have a clue what the abyss hides
what is there in outer space
uncharted trails
clearly we don't care enough

no one is quite sure what is going on
in our own bodies and minds
but to risk our comfort's too much
we don't care enough

what the abyss hides
yet another time the truth escapes
we are all to blame
the guilt is yours and mine

we never care enough
we stood and watched the dawn
of our darker days
the truth escaped
silent till the end
we never care enough

what the abyss hides
yet another time the truth escapes
we are all to blame
the great indifference reigns
we never care enough

the sickest minded one
we could see him arise
all the way to the top
and climb upon the throne
we did not care enough
Track Name: Erase
they will erase everything you loved
to build everything you hate

those things you thought you owned
this place that you called home
such humble paradise, your way of life
now it seems to get in the way of someone's gain
they'll erase everything you loved
to build everything you hate

climb with me up a tree
you will see
----------------------------
if you stand in the way of someone they will try to make you move.
if it's about the profits of people with enough power the first thing they will do is to create a headache for you. bureaucracy, lawsuits, all kinds of obstacles out of nowhere. until your whole way of living gets so unendurable. that for you it's either you find another place or loose your mind.

that office complex on the river bank, the one that wasn't there a few years ago... i've looked at it a hundred times since they built it and still i have same question - what was it, a competition between dickhead architects to make the ugliest building ever?
and they couldn't decide who's the winner so they took parts from each project and that's how it became what we see today

where's the lake, where's the forest, it's all erased by the bulldozers
soon there's going to be a new cozy fansy neighbourhood.
shining new houses, stupid expansive;
and there'll be a shopping mall. with a huge parking lot and a gas station and whatever else...
life's gonna be beautiful. for someone else.
------------------------------
they'll erase everything that i loved
to build everything i hate
they'll erase anything in the name of gain
that's the way they game
Track Name: Harbor No Opinion
erase and grind
try as you might
harbor no opinion

i want me back

as you damn well knew
you loose the cards you show
when he points his finger at you
thumbs down

it all seized up
to a grinding halt
grinding halt

all the fault
given to one
given to fail
that's the rule
all the time
we were young
until the time
it was given to one

the last card out
we all know that game
everything you had
you have lost again the end
(erase)
you hear the silence shout
(and grind)
as you watch them crowd
(i'll harbor none)
it's all over
thumbs down
Track Name: Rhino
can he see what's in his way
the beast doesn't seem to care
wherever rhino is running his rage
rage is going to get him there

little door that you're closing won't keep him out
that door that you're locking won't keep him out
little door that you're closing can't stop him
no way

can he see what's in his way
the beast does not care
Track Name: Labyrinth
across the sky across the endless sea
who raised the wall a barbwire labyrinth
the mighty fortifier
the one i will never meet
i cast my voice in the abyss

let me get out of that dismal place
open the gate in the wall you raised
i have to beg the mechanic
i shake i implore
i look at the machine he built
in its bottomless maw i cast my voice

the roar is deafening
over the walls
over the labyrinth
out into nowhere goes my voice
unheard and drowned out

(now i'm about to hear their verdict)

they put their words in my book
out from my little cell
i ran but never left
the enormous anthill
the immense hive you raised

the roar is deafening
over the walls
over the labyrinth
into nowhere goes my voice

voices unheard and drowned out
Track Name: Divide
nothing i used to know i can see around
this world is new to me
I've lost my memory

it all looks surreal
i see them bow and kneel
before their own fears
they locked themselves with

got your minds erased

burn the bridges
break and divide
minds erased
trying to forget what's left behind

close the doorways
break and divide
you build the walls none will ever climb
no!

you watch the doorways close
you watch the walls arise
your own prison cell
you've built around yourself
Track Name: Slough
mind in standstill
my body getting numb
the noose is tightening
another day burned out

it's getting harder to breathe
no solid ground under my feet
i feel like i'm all alone
though i can see you right next to me
still thinking we did not get lost ... though
who would have thought we could end up here

nothing to hold on to
with each move i drown deeper
in this slough

i wish i could tell you where our road
took that twisted strange turn
which led us here
i wish i knew why i could no longer
get my voice to reach your ears
with your eyes you could not see

ikke igjen
ikke noe tak
ly
eller anker

we felt we're going nowhere
too proud or scared to tell
it would not let us say out loud
what we all knew so well
burnt out
the noose is tightening
further down the well
old wounds have taught us nothing
once more same mistake

tell me you're leaving
find out that i don't care anymore
the path we used to walk
on that day we will forget
Track Name: Forest Wave
the wave is getting closer can you see
it's time for us to drag our boat ashore
what got run over will never be
never be the same as before
the pressure's rising can you feel
your bone marrow will know for sure

take hold before you're swept away
the water spares few
the oldest truth is never moved by our will

it's not for waves to care for a boat
if it likes being thrown around
if you would like to fall to the ground
the gravity will ask you not
nor will the sun ever ask the earth if it's too cold

the water spares few
consent for nature comes from none
take hold before you're swept away
as shadows grow the tendons fray

the ending
it's everywhere
no humans here
alone
no water here for me to take
when bones bend in the brows wake

take hold before you're swept away
the water spares few
the oldest truth is never moved by our will
