"Come Clarity" as written by Jesper Claes Haakan Stroemblad, Bjoern Ingvar Gelotte and Anders Par Friden....
I see, through thirty
Getting older, every day
My soul drawing pictures
Of innocent times
Can you add, color, inside these lines

I want you to lead me
Take me somewhere
Don't want to live in a dream one more day

I want you to lead me
Take me somewhere
Don't want to live in a dream one more day

Sure, if we change our perspective
I'm certain I will change today
I'm certain it will change our ways
When things fall into place

I want you to lead me
Take me somewhere
Don't want to live in a dream one more day
(x4)

Take me somewhere
Don't want to live in a dream one more day
(x2)

    General CommentI think it's all about Anders wanting his daughter to give him a direction, and help him finding which path to walk in life.

    He's "rushing through thirty", days are passing by and he still feels that something is lacking in his life...he needs someone to add colours inside the lines he drew [great metaphor].

    His daughter should change his perspective, the way he used to see things...maybe this time thing would be finally settled [I guess that by the time he wrote these lyrics his daughter wasn't born yet, and he lived with doubts and trepidation the moments before the birth].

    Anders wants her to lead him, 'cause he's tired of living in this dream...yes, he's rich and famous, he's a popular singer and he's living the dream of a million people. But who cares if you're not happy? Now he needs something else...he needs calm and balance, another reason to live.
    He just wants to be somewhere else, no matter where, but finally in harmony with his life.

    I don't know, there's something in Anders' voice that gives me thrills...one of the most expressive voices in metal, in my opinion.
    This song's absolutely poignant, nothing more to say. *_*

    General Commenti think what he says in that stanza after through is something about 30, maybe age 30
    i think he says..."i see through thirty"

    General Commentmy corrections:
    first line:
    Rushing, through thirty

    yes i do believe it means age as all the members seem to be around 30.

    second verse:
    Sure, it would change my perspective
    Im certain I will change today
    Im certain it will change our ways
    When things fall into place

    General CommentSo im guessing this song is about the character waiting for the right person to come along to take him away.

    General CommentApparently the song is about his kid. In the album thanks part, Anders mentions his kid as his clarity.
    Saw them live a few nights ago, they only did 3 songs off this new album but it was awesome!

    General CommentRushing, Through 30
    Getting older everyday by two
    Drawing pictures of innocent times.
    Could you add colour inside these lines?

    I want you to lead me
    Take me somewhere
    Just don't want to live
    In a dream one more day

    Sure it would change my perspective
    I'm certain I would change today
    I'm certain it would change our ways
    Would things fall into place?
