"Senses Tied" as written by Mikael Bengt Stanne, Martin Brandstrom, Mikael Niklasson, Anders Jivarp, Niklas Bo Sundin and Martin Henriksson....
Riddled by the trappings of words that makes the edges blur
Here on the outskirts of sincerity and pride
Stretched as far as words can reach by the lure of higher meaning
There's something out there lost behind the power lines

It's all the same to me
Lost all faith in promises and deadlines closing in
Tired of deciphering the wayward strands of truth
I don't care cause I can't feel
I don't know anymore

Sure we've had a good run with vowels, nouns and letters
But within it's very nature the ability to distort
There's nothing in the words I hear that makes me want to take a stand
It has gone on far too long I chose to disengage
The ends of our conditioniong to swallow, take and like it
Rather keep me in the dark than look me in the eye

It's all these same things pulling us down
To senses gone I cheer
It's all these same things making us blind
There's nothing here for me

Hear it coming heading for you now
I can't even stand the tone of arrogance and denial on display
Here you are listless, left for deaf
Thinking about what standards we set in times of weary tongues
And ears that hear no end to it
Unwilling of unable the difference left for times judgement
It passes on from wicked mouths as victim takes on another role
New bold oppressor our teacher's product now stands tall

    My InterpretationI love this song, its full of aggression and anger

    Half of me thinks this song is about a relationship that has gone sour, which words cannot fix and it has left the author feeling indifferent.

    The other half things its just about people in general

    General CommentFor me, it seems obvious that the meaning of this song is all about the fact that the corrupt governments do things in their own way (and leave the poppulation in ignorance and blindness, without us really knowing what's going on behind the curtains), and we just have to "swallow" whatever they do, and in the end, we, ordinary people, can't do a thing about it.
