"Starforsaken" as written by Jesper Claes Haakan Stroemblad, Bjoern Ingvar Gelotte and Anders Par Friden....
Whipped in the eye by the sand
Malicious have light of day obscured
The sun has burned my skin
Open wounds are licked by sand

To be punished by this vortex of scorn

Wrists and ankles are chained upon this land
Drawn through the desert to be their sacrifice

So this is my Golgotha, so this is my grave
The thieves, the liars, the hypocrite scum
I'd slay them if I only could

The endless sand, the blackest land
A cyclone of spine crushing anger
Meant for me

The overlords of the desert
Not one was meant to be
All human force now flee
Rules of anatomy lost
Rage into the extreme

    General CommentI've always thought that it was about Moses and the Jews journey through the desert. Forsaken by the Northern star.

    Ofcourse, I could be dead wrong.

    General Commentyou know what? i think your right, Varulf. note also that the lyric "Starforsaken" is in the song "Lunar Strain" i just noticed that, and i had to say it somewhere. it's definately an epic journey...whether moses & jews, or just some person trying to cross the dessert, and it really sucking for them

    General CommentI don't really see how this song is about a journey, interesting though it sounds.
    I'd prefer to think it's a song which is basically about a guy being tortured in the desert by some divine powers.

    General CommentI think bukey is right, I've must have been on crack, because that's the lamest song interpretation ever. I don't know what I was thinking, I must have hit my head when I wrote that or something.

    maybe this is just about some dude who hates his job?
