It is as it is/ Det är som det är
A song cycle
A dance macabre
Death is coming closer and we accept it.
We let it sink in and we are living with it.
Death is lingering around every corner, waiting for its turn, your turn and we know it.
Accepting the fact that we are all going to die, seeing it from the bright side. A happy ending.
To sweet music and broken voices we will fall apart before your eyes. It is as it is.
We are singing through the act of life and dancing towards the grave.
Nothing last forever.
