"Observation Slave" as written by and Peter Leo Rickard/strid Wichers....
Find a peace of land
A million demands
And try make
It once again, a piece of land
To make it a plan,
Always trying to be one
With the making
Waiting for a statement, how will I know
It wasn't my engagement, the scars just grow
Such a slave and a sucker for observation
Just let it pass, no questions asked
Decide and try to find, a step behind
A shape that will assure you how
The essence is defined,
Don't want to see yourself in no trouble
It comes to an end, with my trust in hand
Please let me stand

With all my perception, I let myself wait
From all the infection that comes in my way
Like a swarm...

Under pressure, too many times
I can barely fight it back
No intentions, no obsessions
That can change my mind

It comes to an end, with my trust in hand
Please let me stand

With all my perception, I let myself wait
From all the infection that comes in my way

This is my life and I'm still amazed
I should have turned and walked all over
This is my life and I've now prevailed
And reached my goal
This is my time cause it's all erased
This is my time and I'm turning to you
It makes me strive in a conscious way
But not alone

Confusing directions were running my state
From all the infection what comes in my way
With all my perception I let myself wait

    General CommentIn my opinion they are trying to say that after you know something about something. for example if you say a piece of barren land that looks useless, but then come to learn that it is work millions. it will be hard to see it as just a piece of land again. and he is saying that we are all slaves to our own perceptions. we let our knowledge effect how we view the world. and towards the end of the song in his last grab at his goal of getting above all the petty problems of the things that cloud your views and prevent you from seeing things the way they really are. taking in true beauty. and with that last grab at it he lands it. and takes in the world with a new outlook. (basically its about rumors affecting the public's outlooks) THATS JUST MY OPINION THOUGH! tell me what ya think :) [soilwork makes the most simple things into beautiful stories, and thats why i love them]

    General CommentIMO this song is talking about how he has something valuable (his opinions, thoughts, or maybe literally some land) and is feeling pressure from a lot of sources to cave in, but he breaks through and makes his own choice (It makes me strive in a conscious way).

    Great song imo
