"Egonomic" as written by and Jesper Claes Haakan/gelotte Stroemblad....
A mass illusion
Blind men in a line
They smother their fires with gasoline

A stranger's contribution
Everybody's on the run
No clue where they are heading

A spineless attempt
Have we lost it completely?
It always ends up in a mess

A liar's ambition
Praised like a king
Every day in every way
We are getting weaker

You won't go far
With the life that you're living
Every day in every way
We are getting weaker

Slow and calculated
Afraid of the sleeping
We'll never ever reach the goal

A liar's ambition
Praised like a king
Every day in every way
We are getting weaker

You won't go far
With the life that you're living
Every day in every way
We are getting weaker

    General CommentHm, well, to me, this song is about how over time, people have slowly denounced their means of though, by simply conforming.

    General Comment"A liar’s ambition, praised like a king"

    I think this refers to how the blind masses praises the scum that runs this earth.

    A strangers contribution.
    Everybody’s on the run.

    It might refer to people being afraid of the unknown

    No clue where they are heading.

    Mankind has no purpose, or direction, it is just a suicide march, and people don't even see it

    General CommentThis is another slab of pure in flames magic. They are one of the few bands that seem to get a sort of melody and energy into their music and still remain shaggadellically heavy. They churn out stuff like this yet they are still crimminally underrated, why was it that i hadnt heard of them until i saw them supporting slipknot, u ask anyone who has heard of them their opinion and you will get a positive response i gurantee.

    i think this response is probably to do with us as people and that with the way we are living we have no future etc. u know the story roughly

    General CommentIn Flames ARE NOT black metal!
    goes to show how little you know bout metal..
    Dimmur Borgir, Cradle of Filth, Windir, Immortal are black metal.
    In Flames are melodic/gothenburg death metal.

    As previously stated, this song is about the downfall of humanity caused by corruption and apathy, etc;
