III.

An elderly woman greets us. She wants to show us “the Swedish voices that sing”, as she puts it. Everything seems normal size at this moment and the rock we stand on is flat and smooth alike the great slabs of the Stockholm archipelago. She is playing music on the radio that she is carrying, although no sound is discerned. She places it on a rock slab near the water below us and explains to us that the sound waves emitted from the radio are supposed to give off a nice echo across the waters. I am still not able to hear any sound, but I notice a palm-sized metallic object that gleams from under the water, and I bend down to reach it.

“By the frozen lake the spirits lay
Agonized she whispers of the shadows
In the corners of her eyes
Craving her descent into the spiral

They pull her down
With one last look upon
The image of her pale
Unforgiven face

The mimicry of pain all hollowed out
And painted cold onto the canvas of her skeleton
Writhing silver landscape that
Framed her farewell without a word

The final chapter builds an end
Creating death inside the mind
As the cycle once more turns
And fate still strays behind

Streams of sand run across the glass
Floating high in the breeze
This serpent road of consequence that
Framed her farewell without a word

Just silently passing by
Towards the bleeding dawn
As the cycle once more turns
And fate still strays behind.”
