"The Crestfallen" as written by and Sven Morten Ragnar/strid Karlsson....
Don't question any lies, there's no reason to fight

Another trick, to cause your denial
The egde is stripped and your hope is gone
Another trap, for you to fall into
You swallow every drip down the edge of your mind
Edge of your mind...

The shot at your system is the past
It's leading the way through the web of desire
Heal the open wounds in your chest
Fate is destruction...

Kill every soul, if it's a matter of do or die
Kill every soul, if it's a matter of time

Just remember, where you've spent your time
Can't respect all the tears you have cried!
Just remember, how you've changed your life
Can't change your fate with a pitiful cry!
Pitiful cry...

Don't question any lies, there's no reason to fight
Another trick, to cause your denial
The egde is stripped and your hope is gone
Another trap, for you to fall into

Kill every soul, if it's a matter of do or die
Kill every soul, if it's a matter of time

Just remember, where you've spent your time
Can't respect all the tears you have cried!
Just remember, how you've changed your life
Can't change your fate with a pitiful cry!

There's a way you can delve much deeper
If you think it's alright
Assorting the right from the wrong ones
That you have learned so well
So well...

You're stuck you can't remember
The light is turning dim
You're trapped although you've been there
A thousand times before

You're stuck you can't remember
The light is turning dim
You're trapped although you've been there
A thousand times before

Crestfallen be thy name
CRESTFALLEN... BE... THY... NAME!

    General CommentThat lyrics are wrong. Here are the correct:

    Don't question any lies,
    There's no reason to find
    Another trip to cause a denial
    Yet you're stripped and your hope is gone
    another trap for you to fall into
    You swallow every threat that will enter your mind
    Enter your mind!
    A shadow just as dark as your past
    Is leading the way through the web of desire
    Healing all the wounds in your chest
    Vengeance is rising...
    Can I ever resolve, if it's a matter of do or die
    Can I ever resolve, if it's a matter of time?

    Just remember
    Where you've spent your time
    Can't respect all the tears you have cried
    Just remember
    How you've changed your life
    Can't trace your fate with a pitiful crime

    Don't question any lies,
    there's no reason to find
    Another trip to cause a denial
    Yet you're stripped and your hope is gone
    Another trap for you to fall into
    Can I ever resolve, if it's a matter of do or die
    Can I ever resolve, if it's a matter of time?

    Just remember
    Where you've spent your time
    Can't respect all the tears you have cried
    Just remember
    How you've changed your life
    Can't trace your fate with a pitiful crime

    There's no way you can dig much deeper
    If you think it's alright
    Assorting the right from the wrong ones,
    that you have learned so well...

    You're stucked you can't remember
    The light is turning dim
    You're trapped although you've been there
    A thousand times before
    You're stucked you can't remember
    The light is turning dim
    You're trapped although you've been there
    A thousand times before

    Crestfallen be thy name
    Crestfallen be thy name




    I guess it's about persons who spend their life in depressions. Always in the search for the reasons why you are like you are, digging deep into your soul to find answers, but they will never come. Sounds to me like Strid (the lyrics are from him) was once a very depressed person who learned to accept his own personality and started to concentrate on the things that really matter to go on with his life. This song is like a warning to others who never go forward because they stop themself with self-analysing. The soul-search will never end, because there are just no answers to find, no matter how deep and often you're doing that.

    I hope it's understandable what I am writing, I'm just noticing how difficult it is to me to write this kind of thoughts in english...

    Anyway, a really really great song. The "There's no way you can dig much deeper" and "You're stucked you can't remember" parts always let my heart explode, damn beautiful...

    General CommentHe works with depressed teenagers when he's not singing for Soilwork, I know that inspires a lot of his songs. Whether thats the case with this song, I dunno.
