"Artifacts Of The Black Rain" as written by and Jesper Claes Haakan/gelotte Stroemblad....
Stood there leaning to the city moon,
Casting silhouettes tall to grip her white rooms
The black-clad voyeur in his black-clad masque
In the serpentine sun of tragedy basked

Stood there cursing at the soul-dead mass
With their fabled illusions, the vain dreams that passed
Splinters of a life rushing by in the whirl
Alone, silent warrior in a fantasy world

He cried for night / but night could not come
So, swept in the shroud of misanthropia he went away
And fed the empty galleries
With the artifacts of the black rain
Sunken into the shadows with a dry, sardonic smile

He made the footprints a part of his heart
To rouse a sacred confrontation

Stood there carving on the monument to lies
Digging of the Earth, making friends with the soil
As the all-mother rises and bares her bleeding thighs
He disappears into her cold, icy womb

    General CommentThe intro sounds so much like Lord Hypnos that I sometimes forget which one of them I'm listening to.

    General CommentDeadly, deadly song.

    If I had to guess at what it means , it might have something to do with being cast into the shadows or being alienated.

    That's probably not it though.

    General CommentA very hard song to get a meaning out of ... it tends to scatter just when it's on a main point, stilla great set of lyrics and a great song, though.

    Whoever they're talking about is an extremely dark and mysterious, definately dangerous person. Words like "voyeur" adding a sickness and perversity to him. He seems one of a dark clan, who feasts on the night and lives in it. Perhaps simply a story of a demon's journey outwards, also, he seems to be running away from problems(to rouse a sacred confrontation) and, as is the theme of this album, this is the start of the degeneration to becoming part of the Jester Race?

    General CommentAwesome song, music is awesome and the lyrics are awesome.. But hte meaning? After all only author can really know, but my guess would be that this song tells about someone, whose missing something and this missing thing makes him/her mad and he/she is trying to compensate this missing thing with things that are lie..

    General CommentIt's about the misanthrope who watches the Jester Race from the 'outside'. Listen to Jester Race as if it's just a guy talking who thinks all of humanity (including himself) should die, and it makes more sense.
