Lyrics and Philosophy
Tøffelhelt's self-written songs had lyrics in Norwegian. The themes and use of word was very complex, but yet easy and "every-day-philosophic". They have never explained in public what the lyrics is all about, the ruling statement was: What does the lyrics mean to you? What you want.
The silence around Tøffelhelt's future remains.
