"The Cry Of Silence" as written by Johan Ericson, Anders Jacobsson and Magnus Bergstroem....
Filled with sorrow
Bleak inner self touched by pride,
Devoured by solitude, still wrapped in time.
I'm flowing with pain!

Holding myself back in suspicion
And lingering in the dust
The dust of my abandoned remains.
Killed with the dagger of life

Such an exquisite pride in my suffering
Alone, all alone with the emotional
Streams of my soul
So real, so pure yet I'm left aside
Entangled in fear without hope.

I am truly left alone,
But somehow just somehow
It feels like my loneliness is a victory
Over the self-delusion of joy and happiness.

My heart beats faster,
The anguish becomes clearer
And my misanthropic view gets stronger.
Living in the shadows
So proud of being the one,
But desperate
So desperate for a helping hand.
Do I really want to live this life?

I have a thousand reasons to die,
And many millions of tears to cry in silence.
The human plague has emptied my life,
And I curse the day I was born to this world!

Still, no-one else I ever want to be
And no-one else I intend to be
'Cause no-one else I was meant to be!

I need, I want, I long for my retribution
I need, I want, I yearn for my retribution
I want my retribution I want it now!

Unity; a gathering of open wounds,
Of dark of dark clean spirits
What a dream what a dream so distant!
Why should I why should I be alone
When I love when I love my brotherhood?
Shall I die shall I die to be free
When I cry when I cry in silence
So please let me die in silence
Oh my god, let me die in silence!

    This song seems to be just utterly sorrowful, like someone who feels shunned by humanity in general, such as the lines:

    "Why should I be alone/when I love my brotherhood"

    I particularly enjoy how the song starts very slow like the author is brooding, and progressively picks up the pace as the anger and loneliness consumes him, building to a crescendo when the protagonist finally expresses his lamenting and sorrow over his life, then ends with a lone piano, as though he has found death and in as much found peace and contentment.

    Just one man's opinion....
