Beyond The Dark Sun

... For years I have travelled in coldness,
but my heart is warm as the darkened sun above me...
Nothing can ever take away
what I've seen with these tired eyes

Face of the weeping night
and the shade of the fading light

The dawn will never rise again for my eyes
and I will never sleep again
I've lost my hope time after time
cause the light has vanished from the sky

Now when the darkness has become part of me
I got to let my shadows free
cause I never looked behind, I never tried to find
something that could have made me one
Now when the sorrow has taken control of me
I got to let my shadows free
cause I never looked behind, I never tried to find
something that could have made me one
something that I could reach the Sun

    General CommentMaybe this song is also dealing with Jari's leaving Ensiferum, just like "Death and the healing". He sings that he "gets to let his shadows free" - Jari often complained that he wasn't able to make his ideas real while singing/playing in Ensiferum. Now that he has left Ensiferum, he can let free his musical ideas and creations.

    My InterpretationI feel like this song is about depression. Hear me out. The "darkness" and "coldness" are symbols of sadness, while "light" and "warmth" are symbols of happiness and hope. The intro describes how the world around him is dark and cold, but he still has hope in his heart even after years of depression. He claims "The dawn will never rise again for my eyes". This I think means that the world isn't going to bring him happiness. The lights vanishing from the sky are the things he enjoyed in life no longer being available to him and depression falling onto him. He then says "Now that the darkness has become a part of me, i have to let my shadows free". This of course means that his depression is so deeply ingrained into him that the only way for him to live is to get rid of it himself, cos he "never looked behind, never tried to find, something that could have made him one". He then repeats himself and says that he never tried to find something that he could reach the sun. Personally, i think the lyrics say raise the sun, which would show that he never tried to find something that could give him happiness, but instead wallowed, waiting for happiness to find him. Now however is the time for Jari to find something to do that will bring him joy and hope. Maybe "the sun" would be Wintersun?

    Just my thoughts. What do you guys think?

    General CommentReaching the sun implies reaching some sort of higher plane, an afterlife perhaps? Heaven? But he never found it because he never looked back on what he'd done, ultimatly the speaker may have failed but but at least he has no regrets.
