"Dawn Of A New Day" as written by and Jesper Claes Haakan/gelotte Stroemblad....
The thoughts of yesterday forgotten
I like the way this new skin feels
Bring me splinters of tomorrow
Collect the parts where I win

Against the grain
Against the odds
I'll rise and I won't trip again
The dawn of a new day never looked
As good as this

Concrete breath and dust filled tears
A one way ride to inner peace
I never thought I'd join the others
Those who use the dice to solve

Against the grain
Against the odds
I'll rise and I won't trip again
The dawn of a new day never looked
As good as this

    General CommentHe talks of forgetting the past and getting a new skin...a new life. It seems he is getting another chance in life by conforming to something-->"I never thought I'd join the others." He believes that his second chance or new life is something that is incredibly good...better than his last.

    General Commenthey don't say this means they are losing their sound. look back at old in flames. the song timeless on the album Subterranean was a softer song. completely acoustic. even back on Lunar Strain they had some softer shit. Everlost [Part II] is a good example. so i don't think they are getting softer, i think they are difining their sound and staying the same, on almost every album they've had some softer shit. personally i like this newer direction In flames has gone.

    General CommentDo not slander the "soft shit," for it is called evolution. If musicians never gained skill and composed the same shit year after year then they would be called AC/DC.
    If you understood half of what their lyrics were about you'd know that they are meaning to become better people and trying to push for a better society. So then why cannot they change by adding melody to their vocals? What did you enjoy most about In Flames before, the melodic riffs or the poetry screamed? Or perhaps it was the combination of both which made them unique.
    It doesn't even matter, cause at every moment everything is changing in every way, and if you cannot see and accept that then you're in for a life of misery. Do you often wonder why your girlfriend turned into a bitch? Do you suppose she wonders why you became an ass? And how about that new spice on the Wendy's chickenburger... what the fuck were they thinking?

    General CommentOh man! no way that Maggot just said in flames sucks cause they got a soft song. Soft Rock is the BEST way to display all iof a bands potential and skill. Anyone can bang really loud on a drum set and sing really loud, but it takes skill to play with a full, decent, beautiful sound such as what is displayed in this song.

    General Comment"i never thought i'd join the others, those who use the dice to solve" - does that make you think gambling?
    Maybe he has found a new saviour, maybe he has found inner peace in gambling? *shrug* ????

    ( I also agree with Drav!! )
