"Brickwalker" as written by and Peter Leo Rickard/karlsson Wichers....
Brickwalker won't you cease your time
Instead of ruin daily lives
Against the grain they stand
Against the grain they fall
Paint them a picture of their fate
Face their fearless looks so pale
It's so goddamn beautiful

You've already put your hands on their fate
Your mind is clear and your speech is free
Your doors are shut and they won't see
With your cynic presence they'll shiver
'Til the break of dawn

Come on, come on, come on
They're so expendable

We're all so fatal, we're all too able
we'd like to have a break... SAY
We're all so tragic, illogical magic
We'd like to turn the page... SAY

So, watch them cross the yard of time
Do not fail don't cross that line
Inside, they will leave tonight
Vanish through the sky

Don't throw the page
Don't throw it all away!
Gotta turn the page
Just lead thy pain astray!

    General CommentThis song seems like its about wanting to control so many things, yet being irresponsible and surprized when the shit hits the fan.

    General CommentLove this song it's so catchy. I reckon this song is about how people control our lives, that sorta power can be easily misused and is sadistic. But i think it's about something closer to home, like how parents control their childrens future.. I'm thinking more along the lines of parents abusing their kids. But give or take.

    My InterpretationI think that the song itself talk about manipolation and control of other. It could be seen in dfferent levels like the society manipolation or something more epic like fate controlling us and moving us as pawn

    General CommentSounds kinda like WWII era and he might be talking about Hitler and the Jews.

    So, watch them cross the yard of time
    Do not fail don't cross that line
    Inside, they will leave tonight
    Vanish through the sky

    Sounds like they are Burning the Jews and they are "leaving" through the skies, as if they were ashes.

    Thats what I get out of this
