about

Hailing from Stockholm, Sweden, The Windupdeads are a band that was created out of the dissolution of Froid, consisting of Rickard Olsen (vocals), Jonas Westholm (bass), Marcus Von Boisman (guitar/backing vocals), and Fredrick Karlberg (drums). Formed in 2007, they had quick success when their single "Reverse of Shade" was featured on the TV show Gossip Girl. Their music has been praised for its emotionally charged lyrics, sweeping melodies, and anthemic choruses. They are regularly compared to artists such as Radiohead and Muse.
"Army of Invisible Men" is their sophomore release featuring the song "Substitutes," which was used in an episode of One Tree Hill. The album showcases Rickard’s best vocal work to date, and is loaded with the familiar, bright guitar melodies The Windupdeads so brilliantly craft.

Track Name: 59:1
Ok, so everyone's here,
I see you back there
and i feel your love.
oh no, my head will explode
the show must go on
like they say, you know.

Will you be there tonight,
can i count on you now
can you gather your friends and family
its easy to find,
with the posters outside
go there and then you will find me.
Nothing's going on tonight,
you might as well be there,
everything will be alright
I want you there with me
OK, so everyone's here
I see you back there
and i feel your love.
Oh no, my head will explode
like they say, you know.
Hard for you to see,
come closer to me
and i know that you will love what's coming
get out from the shade, feel the love or the hate
You can punish me don't you worry.
If i cross he line again,
tell it to my face
And if i do it one more time,
you can smash it in.
Ok, so everyone's here,
I see you back there
and i feel your love.
Oh no, my head will explode the show must go on
like they say, you know.
Ok, so everyone's gone,
they turned on the lights
and they're cleaning up
Track Name: Don’t Let Go
Give me a sign,
open my eyes,
give me the love
you all feel inside.
Give me a dream,
a chance to believe,
I want to belong,
wipe the slate clean.

Don't let go if i change my mind and
don't let go if i tell you so.
I wont say no,i wont let you down,
I want to know what it feels like now.

Show me the way, and how to behave
I drink till I'm drunk,
is that wrong of me.
Yes I was lost,
i know that i was,
water under the bridge,now i aim for the stars
Track Name: Blood On Her Hands
Chorus:
She had blood on her hands
I guess she wasn't lying,
she wasn't even trying
to hide it from me,
she told me to leave.

Can i come in,
She's been waiting,
Straight hair, cut short,
homemade t-shirt.
Some times last night,
saw the flashlights,
whispers outside
Windows smashed out.

(Chorus)

Footsteps,knocking,open, come in.
Phone calls, what's this, broken noses.
What have you done,
get out, stay out.
Your're not welcome,
white trash, white trash.

(Chorus)
Track Name: Substitutes
You, will be the first one who comes home,
and soon,
you will regret what you said and you,will
be the first one who breaks its true, I've seen this too many times,
too many times (in you)
I, will be the biggest what if in your life,Will keep showing up in your dreams at night,
will make you go crazy in love with me,
and i, will tell you i told you so
and god knows i tried

Never again,
there will be substitutes but that will end.
Never again, never again,
you will come back to me when you stop
to pretend.
Never again, never again
Track Name: Army of Invisible Men
I lit a fire in a house with my friends.
We went upstairs and the forgot all about it.
I built an army of invisible men,
but they surrendered every time i was fighting.
I saw a woman jump in front of a train,
and then they told me she finished her
counselling.
I fell in love and then i fell out again,
but for a second it felt i was burning.
It's gone, cant be undone.


And you know I love you now.
You know i love you right.
You know that right,

I met an angel in a hospital bed,
but i only saw her face for a second.
cause she told me it was all in my head, so i closed my eyes and tried to admit it.

You know i love you now.
you know i love you right.
you should know that by now.

I fell in love and then i fell out again,
but for a second it felt like i was burning.

You know i love you now.
you know i love you right.
you should know that by now.
Track Name: Spare Parts
We're all train wrecks
with the same motive.
Drunk brothers who lost our grip,
we burned out long ago,
forget what you've been told.
I'm the smoke going down your throat and, the pill that makes you choke,
a total wast of time, should be the last thing on your mind.
can you believe what we have done.
We made it here somehow.
Let's try it once again,
before we reach the end.

You burn, like stars.
We run like old, used cars.
Before we grow old and die,
you will light up the sky.
We're the sons of the broken ones
And, you will outlast us,
It.s one thing to numb your soul,
it's another to let it go.
You seem to know what make things right,
i'm blinded by your light.
its always been like that,
its the one thing we still have,
Can you believe what we have done,
We made it here somehow.
Let's try it once again, before we reach the end.
You burn like stars.
We run like old, used cars.
Before we grow old and die,
you will light up the sky.
Track Name: Quiet Down
Honestly i cant leave right now
I'm lost out there.
Can i stay here tonight,
don't want to be alone.
Tell me to sleep
that's fine by me
its a long way home.
Passed out with a smile
but not for long.
Cause sing tonight,
they laugh outside.
They're everywhere,
every night.
Be with us now, rain down, wash away the sound,
quite down or drown.
Be with us now, rain down, empty the streets,
make it easy for me.

I am what i am I didn't plan to get like this.
Got nothing to hide,
no one to miss
Bring on the truth
if its coming form you, I can handle it.
I can choose to ignore
whatever you say,
They run around,
they shake the ground.
They're everywhere,
quiet down.

Be with us now, Rain down,
wash away the sound,
quiet down or drown.
Be with us now, rain down,
empty the streets,
make it easy for me
Track Name: Your Limits
When he surprised you, you mistook him for God
so you gave him your heart.
So he thanked you,
and then got up on his feet
and turned the radio up.
The song got stuck into your head.
and it floats around in there.

Chorus:
All of the songs, yeah the pretty ones
they mean nothing now.
And the pictures you had are thrown in the trash,
they mean nothing now.
You don't need eight hours of sleep
it means nothing now.
the signs that you show only grows and grows, it means nothing now

He had a painting,
of a man on a bench
resting his head on his hands.
And it reminded you,
of the place you grew up so he gave it to you.
You still have it somewhere.
But you haven't looked for years.

(Chorus)

Words to the songs,
forgotten and gone.
context is lost,
not what it was.
Making no sense,
don't know what it meant,
Where when and how,
means nothing now.
Track Name: Next Year
I've been drinking too much, I know,
this year,
Trying so hard to get rid of, my fears.
I promise that ill do my best,
to turn things around.
And I'll try to get better next year.
I'll try to get better next year.

Making my promises all over again.
If this is the season to do so,
I'll be happy to pretend.
I promise that I'll do my best,
to turn things around/
And I'll try to get better next year.
I'll try to get better next year.

When snowflakes fall
and surrounds us all.
It's time to get better,
time to get better and better now.
I'll try to get better next year.
I'll try to get better next year
Track Name: Perfection (Go On)
You came along,
did what felt right.
But when you leave,
thers is no one in sight.
We don't need your rules,
you dont even know,
If you should care
maybe they'll show.
Do it right now.
Do it right now.

Chorus:
Hey go on, go on,
hey go on
go on and show.
show your love,
your love,
You have to live a little
show your love ,
don't waste your time

There will be no price
that proves that you're right.
You're wasting your time.
You're wasting your time.
Your problems mare yours,
there's no one to blame.
you will end up alone,
covered in shame
Do it right now.

(chorus)
