"Reroute To Remain" as written by and Jesper Claes Haakan/gelotte Stroemblad....
It started as a whisper
Now try to dodge this roar
Unified, the most forceful way to go

Waste this one
It's up to you
We need this revolution

Destroy the pattern
Anything that separates
Across the times
Who dares to follow

For years we wandered these circles
Hold onto whatever lie gets us through

Design new latitudes
Find ways to channel bliss
Us defined, it's too fragile to neglect
Reroute to Remain
Reroute to Remain

Never want, to look back in greed
Can I please have your attention?

There are mountains to cross
For all that are willing
There a never ending treasures
That await you

    General CommentAlso, this song formed the basis for my valedictorian speech at graduation lol.

    IN FLAMES, TAKING OVER HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATIONS EVERYWHERE.

    I can't believe I got to see them in Gigantour with Bodom and Megadeth... Amazing.

    General Commentim fairly convinced its symbolizes the fact that the album is heading towards a new direction, and is there to stay (to remain)

    General CommentFirst I have to say that In Flames really kick ass I loved them the fist time I herd them (pinball map) on the radio. They deserve more appreciation then they have gotten. I live in Sweden and only a few people I know have heard of them. You would think that in their own county they would be known at least. Maybe it’s just the town I live in.
    I've been listening to their new album almost nonstop these past days after the release and it is really wonderful! Just like everything else In Flames make. Almost every song on the album is a masterpiece. It’s a little different from the rest of their albums but it still has that “magic” In Flames touch to it.
    I think this song is about people who are stubborn and refuse to change their old ways and ideas of things. Maybe it is directed to people who want to live in their own world and don’t accept today’s changes in society; they just think everything was better before. Basically the song is probably about that times change and you should keep an open mind to make the best of it.
    Anyway, I love the song and the new album and In Flames… In Flames RULE!!!

    General CommentYou are correct about the stubborness and of the old ways. However, they want to unify societies, destroy the barries that separate us. Reroute to remain... find a path away from our current situations (war and terrorism and such) to continue living.

    General CommentI would say that the entire album "Reroute to Remain" is very thematic. Many of the songs deal with things changing.

    General CommentI agree nemuu,i to think that this song is about the evolution the band have underwent to keep the sound fresh adn to challenge the percerptions of what they could do as a band.These guys showcase real musical talent.It may not be at the level of Carcass,but fuck,these guys can make some cool noise.The twin guitars on this song own.

    General CommentI think everyone's on the right track...the world's heading in a downward spiral and unless we work together and get a plan in action then it may be too late. Someone should send this song to George Dubya...

    General CommentI think this song is definitely about not fallowing the direction we're all headed in presently in order to make the world a better place.
    "There are montains to cross"
    "For all, that are willing"
    "There are neverending treasures"
    "that await you"
    I think this means that if we're willing to change our ways, we could achieve great things.
