There is the face in the still water
I can't ever remember wearing
Like fingerprints on your heart
To the untrained eye, a secret
I bled away the last of you

Sought trust in shapes of combined results
that trickles from a less than solid case
Fought off attacks of resurfaced lust
Burning the gracing grounds

Chorus

What will give in first
The body or the lash
Monochromatic Stains
The lead or the fake
Monochromatic Stains


This piles of ashes of a soul
informant pokes abound
These sickly little fingers
Get away from me

Tread not the path of least restraint
each piece of evidence a lie, a lie
The body, the face, all items in place
I don't remember a thing

What will give in first
The body or the lash
Monochromatic Stains
The lead or the fake
Monochromatic Stains


A sacrifice made to the loss of a mind
Folly a man's demise

Track now the stains that allow my fall
sickening, the sight of it all
Never shall I claim my innocence
I was just not there

What will give in first
The body or the lash
Monochromatic Stains
The lead or the fake
Monochromatic Stains

    General CommentHere are Mikael's own words about the lyrics:

    Here it is...my own little stab in the dark at the mystery genre and the repercussions of voluntary and self-inflicted unconsciousness. Some aspects of this will be further investigated in the upcoming video, some will be further obscured...Enjoy!

    General Commentuhh...

    In the video he kills his wife, if I remember cororetly. Monochromatic means 1 color or appearing to be one color, for exmaple... your blue jeans. He is refering to the blood.

    "A sacrifice made to the loss of a mind"

    He lost his mind and killed whoever it was that he killed.

    General CommentThis song reads like a crime scene investigation. It's really cool IMO.

    General CommentThe way he says "Monochromatic Stains" at the end of the 2nd chorus and the music in the background... man that's like the best musical moment ever.
