"...of Melancholy Burning" as written by Mikael Bengt Stanne, Anders Jivarp, Niklas Bo Sundin, Martin Henriksson and Fredrik Johansson....
Jackal, aches for pain beyond me
Bestiality beckons the anger set free
For there is no pain greater than thine
For there is no gain but the fury inside

Desolated since derived
Torn screaming from the gaping wound

Always be cherished
The grandeur of melancholy
Outward reprisal
Swear by your throne

Fallen words shall grieve thee
The grandeur of melancholy

Frailty, thy name is weakness
Vengeance, thy name is pain
Storm through the still glowing night
Ember eyes beyond reason shall see

Flee from the safety of the sheltering sky
See all but logic, so vengeance shall be
The grandeur of melancholy burning oh burning

Charge into uncertainty's promised land

Always and never
Your are the nail

Cursed, cursed
Oh essence of the night guide me
Cursed, cursed
Oh sweet revenge heal me
Frailty, thy name is weakness
Vengeance, thy name is pain
The nail

Jackal, aches for pain beyond me
The storm that now grabs me
Is the storm of my soul
For there is no pain greater than mine
For there is no gain but the fury inside

Once so bereaved
And ever so suppressed
Charge and split up the anger
Wake up the jackal
Let out his wrath

Always and never
He spoke of his pain
Always and never
You are the nail

Always be cherished
The grandeur of melancholy
Always and never
You are the nail

    General Comment"you are the nail" probably means that the person he is referring to is the causer of pain. You know like Jesus getting nailed to the cross type of metaphor.

    General CommentTrue beauty.

    Dark Tranquillity BEATS In Flames severely into the ground. Well. maybe except for the TJR and WH album, but on a whole they dominate them.

    General CommentLyrics are about being obsessed with revenge and anger clouding your judgement. Bestiality doesn't refer to sex, but rather anger taking over you and acting like an animal. No idea what "you are the nail" means.
