Today tomorrow seems so far away and the wait in vain
So safe in the blinding light of love unchained in yesterday's grave

The truth that could set souls free
Is buried within sweet pandemonium
Concealed by disbelief
The riddle stays veiled in sweet pandemonium

Afraid that everything remains unchanged in this fragile dream
Ashamed of the shattered remains of promises made

Drained by the anger and grief
Fazed by the envy and greed
The secret cries for a release
The lucidity hidden deep in sweet pandemonium

    General Comment:H.I.M. make me believe that there is hope for modern rock music.
    I love this song, it's the most heartfelt guitar-driven ballad ever written and it's sung perfectly. I wish I could hear it live.

    General Comment:I agree with quigon_chow, this song holds a similar meaning for me as well.

    Drained by the anger and grief
    Fazed by the envy and greed
    The secret cries for a release
    The lucidity hidden deep in sweet pandemonium

    This could possible mean that he (Ville) feels drained and empty without someone in his life, and is envious of those around him that do have someone. “The lucidity hidden deep in sweet pandemonium” could mean that when you are in love, or in a serious relationship everything seem more clear and understandable.

    I don’t really know if my interpretation on this song is right, but it’s what I think the song means, to me at least.

    General Comment:For some reason I connected this song to Ville's love for Gene Simmons. I think it's about people you idolize and love distantly. Is that weird?

    General Comment:when i first heard the guitar at the beginning of this song, it was one of those "this is the best thing i've ever heard!"-moments. Love HIM, love Ville, they've changed my life.
