"Solitude" as written by and Leif / Edling....
I'm sitting here alone in darkness
Waiting to be free,
Lonely and forlorn I am crying
I long for my time to come
Death means just life
Please let me die in solitude

Hate is my only friend
Pain is my father
Torment is delight to me
Death is my sanctuary
I seek it with pleasure
Please let me die in solitude...

Receive my sacrifice
My lifeblood is exhausted!
No one gave love and understanding
Hear these words,
Vilifiers and pretenders
Please let me die in solitude

Earth to earth
Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust

Earth to earth
Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust...

Sitting here alone in darkness
Waiting to be free,
Lonely and forlorn I am crying
I long for my time to come
Death means just life
Please let me die in solitude

Earth to earth
Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust

Earth to earth
Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust

Earth to earth
Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust

Earth to earth
Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust

And please let me die in solitude...

    General CommentThis song is amazing! I discovered it after hearing the cover version of the song by a band named \"Swallow the sun\" and i\'ve gotta say that the \"Swallow the Sun\" version is AMAZING! Actually I love that one more than the original.

    As to what the song means.. it\'s obviously about a sad, lonely, depressed person waiting to die all alone and miserable..

    General CommentI don't like Swallow the Sun's version of this song, but Anorexia Nervosas' Solitude-cover is great.. But this, original version, is good too. :)

    General CommentIt should be "dust to..." then earth to earth again I think.

    Great song, obvious meaning I think, all things come to an end and he wants his to come sooner.
