"Transparent" as written by and Jesper Claes Haakan/gelotte Stroemblad....
Consume all the obscene
Persuade the most hideous and ugly
Under every pile and stone
A rebirth, for you to find

Freedom is to be able
To go in any direction
So take the uncertain path

[Pre-Chorus:]

One foot in the open
Ten feet ahead
Build your own ladder
And don't lie to yourself

[Chorus:]

Secrets left above the grave (It's not for one to keep)
You're all so self destructive
Spend more time with the broken (see what became of their mistake)
You know you're lost when you feel transparent

Be at one with the wind
Even if it's a struggle
Make this your priority

Open all your senses
To new impressions
Act like all that was has vanished

[Pre-Chorus:]

One foot in the open
Ten feet ahead
Build your own ladder
And don't lie to yourself

[Chorus:]

Secrets left above the grave (It's not for one to keep)
You're all so self destructive
Spend more time with the broken (see what became of their mistake)
You know you're lost when you feel transparent

You know you're lost
You know you're lost
You know you're lost when you feel transparent

    General CommentThis song speaks of choosing your own path in life and not being certain of everything you do. It is no good to go through life not sharing your experiences and daring to do something different(also being open to new ideas). Eventually people start to ignore who you are and you die without leaving something for people to remember you by.

    Song MeaningIn general we have limited ourselves to what our eyes can see; never We appreciated what for many is considered ugly (marked by society). Why continue so?
    We have freedom to chart our own course, without tracking stereotypes and prejudices, and not feel guilty even if we are criticized; be autonomous and responsible for our own progress and we not feel despised, always be sure to who we are to avoid becoming self-destructive.
    Every word and action performed in our life will be remembered or forgotten, we will be remembered or forgotten. So it is better to live with a soul open to new experiences and enjoy each day without yearning for the past.

    General CommentAlso, its about learning from other peoples mistakes, hence

    "Spend more time with the broken (see what becomes of their mistake),
    You know you lost when you feel transparent "

    Whoever typed the lyrics out missed out the part i put in brackets there. Those are the official lyrics in the liner notes for the cd as well.
