"In Flames" as written by Jesper Claes Haakan Stroemblad, Bjoern Ingvar Gelotte and Anders Par Friden....
Behold the heart of mine in flames
A top the highest mountain
Below the darkest depths
In the valley of hate I wander
My frost bitten heart is set ablaze, set ablaze

Ravage my soul
Plunder my mind
Branded by thunder, fire and ice

Trampled in fury by hordes of the light
I am crushed by the hand of my sky
My sky has forsaken me

Rivers of crimson lead me now
Trail of fire
In a place of fire eternal
Left in flames

Scattered in a world of thorns
Torn from my earthly self
Aggrieved in tears and bitterness
I fall beyond stars, beyond stars

Ravage my soul
Plunder my mind
Branded by thunder, fire and ice

Trampled in fury by hordes of the light
My fiery heart is stronger than ever
It's stronger than ever before

My heart in flames

    General Commentone of the greatest songs on earth. love the shredding, and the '93 demo had acoustic inttro. i think it's sort of scattered...alot of it seems to be about dying...that would make two songs about dying on the '93 dome (clad in shadows also). i dunno though. it's very anguishful (if that's a word) weather emotional stress, stress over love, or just plain death. it's awesome song.

    General Commentin my opinion:
    not a very good song, except the part about "ravish my soul", he says it so intensely and powerfully..
    This song is actually more black metal than death metal btw.

    General CommentHaving listened to the song several more times, I also add that this is in fact a quite good song, but I think it would have been better of a bit shorter.

    General Commenti agree that its more black metally.. but i also think its meaning is very diverse. i'm no satanist but i can relate to this song. for me its about someone who has had all his faith and love into someone or something else (whether it be a person or higher) only to have it crushed, destroyed. this person or higher being has abandoned or really hurt him and he has now taken it upon himself to seek strength in all of his anguish. he's torn from human emotion, left hurt etc and bcuz of this experience, he is much more strong and hardened person-less susceptible to human pains etc. i also think its awesome that the song starts of with his heart being in flames bcuz his heart is left in a completely different state from what it started off with... well thats what this song says to me. or maybe its bcuz i'm too clouded in my life's issues that i refuse to see another meaning.. :)

    General CommentThis song connects with me on an unusual basis. When I hear "my heart in flames" I attribute it to the feeling of fighting, as in rebelling against something or working for a cause that is much greater than yourself.

    General CommentReally worried about this one when i started reading the comment

    I thanked the God of In Flames that someone pointed out the true lyrics of the chorus

    "It's in my hands, the sky, so bright it's burning. It's for me to decide, if flames will reach heaven tonight"
