byrkir.jpgByrkir has been fighting the Devil for as long as he can can remember . He is currently in hell, screaming at the Beast but without making any sounds what so ever . This can be hard . But his love is strong and his mind is set . His weapon of choice in this great battle is a manipulated icelandic tounge witch  he will use without hesitation at every oppurtunity, at every foe .Love him because he loves you to .Friður .

caressing myself with a Bacardi machine gun
hangover crawling like sun lotion
I´ll see you in action movies
perhaps on mountain tops

a frame made of poet
removed from
a sugarcoated mine

me and idealistic girls
used to many things
slender or bearded

we seek intestines
from sugarcoated mines
