"Pantomime" as written by and Amund/hinderson Svensson....
Burning bright in the industries of night
Between the stars like a wanderer, across the sea of suns
I reached out for the radiant shadow of a figure with horns
Drawn like a moth to flame, and into the lion's den

Space cities of wonders, at an evolutionary dead-end
Pale electric shadows, locked together in common self-hatred
All it takes is an idea, a single word can change the world
I tried as hard as I could to make you understand
There's no difference between up or down out here

Five fingers are no longer enough
We lost control a long time ago

The Judas halo, the betrayer spirit
The human ambition in all its disfigured glory
Liars of light, masters of night
We all get what we deserve in the end

Five fingers are no longer enough
We lost control a long time ago

    General CommentHonestly, when I heard this song the first thing that came to mind was USA. Dunno why, but it just seems to fit well with the feelings of most people outside of the US.

    I have my reasons for this feeling, but I won't go into them. I mainly just don't feel like typing it all out.

    General CommentTo me the first stanza is saying how someone (the people of earth) are giving into the darkness

    The song continues on to say that we are making progress in terms of technology but we aren't getting any wiser or solving our problems "Space cities of wonders, at an evolutionary dead-end"
