"Out Of Nothing" as written by Mikael Bengt Stanne, Martin Brandstrom, Mikael Niklasson, Anders Jivarp, Niklas Bo Sundin and Martin Henriksson....
Make enemies of truth and reason
in that a rage is born
Start out a promise and a venture
where direction was never the goal
How does it feel?
to run out of nothing
Where do you go?
When you run out

Never you mind the grand perspective
other forces kept at bay
as you narrow the field of vision
to retain a sense of control
Your focus will remain unfixed
in the haze of a world unhinged

Create a sense of purpose
around which you base your faith
The doubt that haunts your skin
an itch that will linger on forever

How does it feel?
to run out of nothing
Where do you go?
When you run out

Wave off critique as an offender
never question where your motives lie
as a part of the greatest fable
the beast all had forgotten
instincts in a dead end rampage
destruction as a saving grace

You run out of nothing
How does it feel?
to run out of nothing
Where do you go?
When you run out

    General CommentWhy no comments on this song yet, the lyrics to this song are awsome? Anyways I believe this song is about how religous people are always changing there stories or denying sience when ever something contradicts their ideas and how deep down they are filling doubts about their religon.

    "other forces kept at bay as you narrow the field of vision to retain a sense of control"
    This line is explaing how they will disbelieve sience or something else if it contradicts their believes so they still have the ability to belive their religon like people that don't belife in evolution and other scientific theories because they collide with their religous ideas.
    "Create a sense of purpose around which you base your faith"
    This line is pretty much just saying how religous people chose to believe in something so they can continue to belive in there religon to make them feel like there is meaning to there life.
    "The doubt that haunts your skin an itch that will linger on forever"
    This line explains how deep down they are having doubts about there belive but will never show them or aknoldge them so they can continue to feel important and like there is more to life.
    "Wave off critique as an offender"
    This line seems to be about how when anyone questions their belives they will get all defensive and say that they are trying to offend them and attack there religon.
    "How does it feel? to run out of nothing Where do you go? When you run out"
    The chorus I am not sure on but maybe its something like "Where do you go?" when everything is proven wrong and their is no longer any evidence to back the truth of their religon, when it's falsehood has been fully exposed.

    Anyways that was my first post on this website and it seems like I get the meaning of this song but I'm not sure what do you guys think? (Wow that was alot of typing I feel like I just did a school report or something)

    General CommentIt definitely sounds anti religion to me. "Make enemies out of truth and reason." is pretty self explanatory. I think "Destruction as a saving grace" refers to the supposed end of days, because a lot of Christians and other people of faith only follow it because they are scared of being cast into hell in the end of days, and fear is the only saving grace for religion.

    My OpinionI think this song speaks on religion and creating our own conviction.
    For me, any one religion is true, since they are only beliefs of some institution that have been supported by man because of its tyranny and oppression throughout history, whose objective has always been the wealth and power of the whole society, even if according to their purpose is world peace. Everything they create rules and commandments about what is prohibited and should not be done because otherwise it is a serious error or sin, all with the purpose of mow people so that not reveal or change fiction by rational.
    In some ways you are trying to brainwash so that not issues at any time and focus your time and support them.
    A question of my religion which formerly belonged was, "Why did God if it is a very good and merciful being above all of us was able to flood the entire planet? What is not forbidden to kill? What is the evidence or basis for this?
    And because of all these various conflicts over freedom of thought and revelation throughout history have emerged.

    Each of us is different, we think differently and we possess capacity to reason and think, let's use it to create our own beliefs free from oppression.
