"Beneath" as written by and Fredrik/haake Thordendal....
It's time to go into the me below
My morbid self beneath
A peril trip the last way out
I spin as I let go
In spirals down the narrow lines
Passing through my aura
Spit me out into my mind
A journey through disease

I'm behind my cynic eyes
That stare but can not see
The sickness in me... Beneath

I fall in untruthful me the essence of my thoughts
Swirling in a thousand vows endless truthless

What am I this me beneath
A vain organic lie
That rules me from inside

Immobile now I bow before reality itself
It's substance moving through my eyes
My life is transferred once suffused upon
My mind the view erases burns inside
And then another fall

I plunge into a well of lies a cold
Perennial flow the vortex of my soul

    General Comment"Beneath" seems to be a exploration of the subconscious. The sights seen are repulsive to the speaker – "the sickness in me," "a journey through disease," etc. Ultimately, the fundamental question asked is "What am I, this me beneath?" In other words, what is truly lurking beneath the surface self? This song seems to indicate that the answer may be unappealing.

    General CommentOne of my favorites from DEI. A very deep, self-depreciating, reflective look at one's soul.
