"...As The Future Repeats Today" as written by and Jesper Claes Haakan/gelotte Stroemblad....
There's no place that still remains
Just deserted space all left in gray
Why did we lose, the knowledge of time?
Is this the price, the hell we pay?

The poisoned fear known to man
Is he who try to find his path
The collective force blaming you
This is day day we split in half

Thrown to the gallow, forgotten and sore
Sworn to be different in what way I can
The sultry taste that is special to me
Is the last gleeful glimpse of a bitter man

Down and troubled, in search for better days
Back to the beginning, I'm at the end
All my time, compressed to itching moments
As the future repeats today

So impressed, lost the faith in all I had
Broken down, I'm on my way to be dissolved

The hopes and prays of things to come
I've lost them all with glory
Urgent to aim for that short-lived joy
I see gold in all that lies before me

And so we ignore the beggars cup
Praise your act in the Grand Finale
Teach the unborn the winners sign
A welcome grin to the world royal

    General CommentThis song didn't immediately hit me as good, but once I listened to it a few times, I really got into it. In my opinion, one of the best on the Clayman album.

    The meaning I get from it is that the narrator has made many mistakes in his life trying to better his standard of living, but in doing so, has destroyed himself. But, it seems as the song closes, he still hasn't really learned the lesson.

    General CommentI think it's basically saying the usual "learn from your mistakes" stuff that you hear so often...But he makes it cool instead of using the common "learn from the past" he looks at it as if we're doing today the same we will in the future cuz we never learn...

    General Commenti have the album, and it says "
    For so long I tried to be like you, Pushed aside with no time to evolve..", By the way this is probably one of the best on the album. My fav would be Another Day In Quicksand, or Swim.

    General CommentI agree with d_e4life. I reckon it's about all the wrong things and wrong choices the narrator's made and even if he's faced with the same problem again later, he seems to take the route he did before, even though he knows it's wrong. It's almost like a guy who never wins.
