"Dead Alone" as written by and Jesper Claes Haakan/gelotte Stroemblad....
I'll always belong to the shadow
Don't show me new results
I will never enter your heaven
Make the most of my dirty cell

Creeps infected by control
That's what put me in here
Dig deep don't think you ever get to the place where they buried me
The last glimpse that I have
Fragments, pieces of some things valuable
Even though it doesn't make sense anymore
I release my last year

The cold worms and me
We are all right
We are free
The dead light inside
Fuel to new seed
New world I hide

Where there are only my bones
Please put them in use
Want to be part of a new dawn
The darkness disappears
Don't release these chains
Never been closer to myself
All your mistakes run though
As I realize what we become
The end is here to bid farewell
I'll turn to ash and hear them sing
Songs about my emotions dead and alone
Don't make an effort you don't know me anything

My frustration, my conversation, why are we even here?
The abuse that we use I do not longer care

The cold worms and me
We are all right
We are free
The dead light inside
Fuel to new seed
New world I hide

    General Commentgot to agree with dreadnaught.. it is a cool bridge in the song. but i also love it how the song starts and the drum that comes bashing in en a after few sec a little extra hits on some sort of thing does the trick :D

    for the meaning i think its about that he always will be what he is.. and stay and believe in his own things he does not want beautifull heaven but will make the best out of it how where he lives or goes

    he is wondering what we are even doing here

    but in the bridge he somehow hopes to return

    General CommentI think part of this song, especially the beginning, has to do with something that you believe in, but nobody else believes in or believes you about it. So he is choosing the suffering of going against the majority and following what he believes is right, even if he gets nothing but pain from it.

    General CommentIt's about doing what you think is morally right, and accepting/facing any consequences of that act. Not changing based on what other people or society/media thinks is right. Do what you think is right.

    General CommentI think this song is about staying with your beliefs no matter how much hatred and pain you suffer, even willing to accept death or anything just to stay with them and live by them.

    Near the end it sounds like the singer is adding in that he does NOT want people to try to understand him regardless of what happens because they will never be able to understand.

    Overall, this one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard. Its strangely comforting, yet invigorating...

    General CommentI love this song...definitely one that sticks out on the album, for nothing if not it's ambient feel. I think it's about corruption and abuse of power in the high levels of the world, either government or society, and he's been persecuted against as a result.

    General Commenti agree when i first heard this song it reminded me of being prosecuted for something you dont believe was wrong and going to jail...

    this song sounds awesome...especially when it starts with "when there are only my bones" and the pre chorus is amazing

    General Comment"The cold worms and me
    We are all right
    We are free "

    "Don't release these chains
    Never been closer to myself "

    Songs about my emotions dead and alone
    Don't make an effort
    You don't know me anyway "

    I think this song is about the singer's pain, and how he needs it. He will always belong to the shadow, and that's the way he wants it, because that's when he is himself.

    General CommentI think this song is about the whole process of life and how he feels locked up in his own thoughts and realizes that he cant relate to anything at all.

    General Commenti'll add that bridge is about the writer knows he is right, and when he's all gone (maybe it takes all the people who believe something to die before that belief goes away), when the world finally changes that he will be noted..and in the rest he knows he is right and it is society that is wrong and he realizes what its become
