"Wealth" as written by Anders Nystrom and Jonas Petter Renkse....
Cool night gave my truth for a lie
Will you be here when I try
I'm not set cannot do it yet
Will you be here when I try
Our wealth breeds emptiness
Another day to compress

My lips are dry you gave me drugs to try
Hold me when I die
The sky has frozen to a wall
We die we all

    General CommentThis song may be about someone killing themselves, with the aid of another person.

    Unfortunetly I can't make sense of the first line, however...

    "Will you be here when I try, I'm not set cannot do it yet"
    Here the narrator still lacks the determination to kill himself, and wants his friend(or lover, or family member) to be with him when he does.

    "Our wealth breeds emptiness"
    The Narrator is wealthy, and yet feels his life is hollow and without meaning, without purpose.

    "My lips are dry you gave me drugs to try"
    The last four lines are what really lead me to believe that this is a song about suicide. In this line The Narrator has taken whatever drugs he was given(by his friend/lover/family member) to kill himself.

    "Hold me when I die
    The sky has frozen to a wall
    We die we all"
    Now the Narrator is finally dying. "The sky has frozen to a wall", this could mean he feels utterly trapted, as if the sky is a glass cieling, constituting a prison from wich there is no escape. In the last line of the song (We die we all) perhaps the Narrator feels when his existence ends, so does everyone's existence.
