"The Templar Flame" as written by and Joacim Anders/dronjak Cans....
So where were you when darkness came to life
Inside a dream that controlled your inner plight
Take a look at me, you've ruined what we had
Inner visions, infrared, it drives me mad

Out of control
The system mounted on the wall
For every soul there's no way out

In this world where nothing lives
The walls are caving in, life's a sin
In this world we have to give
Before we all can see The Templar Flame

Do you believe surveillance is the cure
The remedy for our insanity
Take a look around and tell me what you see
Souls walking painlessly like you and me

In infrared
Controlling what is left to see
Awake the dead, there's no way out

In this world where nothing lives
The walls are caving in, life's a sin
In this world we have to give
Before we all can see The Templar Flame

You see the words, speak
In infrared, speak
You see the words
Damn the machine, speak
Speak of the flame, the Templar Flame

Oh, oh, oh

    My InterpretationIt's hard to tell what exactly this song means, but...
    There are frequent mentions of visions and seeing things. "Take a look at me", "Take a look around", "You see the words". Surveillance and infrared are mentioned aswell. The lyrical subject here is also throwing accusations at someone - "You've ruined what we had" etc.
    That being said, this song is about somebody who is able to see and understand way more than the person he's talking to. That person could have probably been someone very important for him, but ruined the relationship between them so now he is left alone with his point of view. He realized that the machine (governments etc.) controls everybody with the usage of modern technology, often in such a way, that nobody would notice (therefore - infrared - related to technology and also infrared waves cannot be seen) except for him. He is a rebel and his goal is to finally find freedom ("The Templar Flame" would represent this freedom) and he encourages people to see his message and raise their voice ("Speak of the flame").

    TL;DR - it's about blind society that is controlled and doesn't even know about it.

    That's what i think.
