"Vacuum" as written by and Jesper Claes Haakan/gelotte Stroemblad....
The yesterday we loved
Speaks of tomorrow
The blood of man matters in time
Never taste the puss
We live from Monday to Sunday
But forget what it means
Then it comes with a closed fist
And we just started from Devil's rights

Well call all your friends
Watch me throw down
From the need of vacation
We're speeding from triple hate and artifacts

We're still superiors
And as for understanding
Lie, rape, steal and murder
To make the night realize
Crush the system
Make your contributions mine
Pour out and will you get this strong as they've become

You sat in silence
Hear a voice
How far are we ready to take this
You sat in silence
Hear a voice
Before it all crumbles

Lie, rape, steal and murder
Smiling I plot your pain

Can I turn up the TV
Exploding sympathy
Farewell man
I trust we part our company

We're still superiors
And as for understanding
Lie, rape, steal and murder
To make the night realize
Crush the system
Make your contributions mine
Pour out and will you get this strong as they've become

You sat in silence
Hear a voice
How far are we ready to take this
You sat in silence
Hear a voice
Before it all crumbles

Lie, rape, steal and murder
Smiling I plot your pain

You sat in silence
Hear a voice
How far are we ready to take this
You sat in silence
Hear a voice
Before it all crumbles

    General CommentSimply put, it's about the fact that we walk around in a big vacuum. You go to your job you get home and watch TV and then that's it. It's important working 9 to 5. It's important having acertain income. It's important to get wasted on the week ends and we keep doing it. "Listen in silence, hear our voice", that's directed to mother earth herself. How we are destroying this planet, exhausting the rainforest and whatnot.

    Again this is more or less directly quoted from an interview with Anders from a while back.

    General CommentThese lyrics are horribly wrong. One major correction that I was able to make out is, in the third line, "The plight of man is that time never takes a pause." That sounds alot more like something In Flames would say, now doesn't it?

    General CommentTo me it seems like Anders says
    "Listen in silence, hear her voice", not
    "Sat in silence, hear a voice"

    General CommentThe yesterday we loved. Speak of tomorrow
    The burden of man is that time never takes a pause.
    We live from Monday to Sunday, but forget what it means.
    Then a ghost comes to visit, and we tell stories from tabloids.

    Call all your friends, Watch fake photos from a made up vacation.
    Speaking in tongues about ancient artifacts.


    We steal from beggars and ask for understanding.
    We lie, rape, steal and murder to make tonights headlines.
    Trust the System, make your contribution.
    Smile, applaud, love, hail. The weaker you get, the stronger they become.

    Listen in silence, hear her voice.
    How far are we ready to take this?

    Listen in silence, hear her voice.
    Before it all crumbles.

    Lie, rape, steal and murder.
    smile, applaud, love, hail.


    Gather in front of the TV. Exploding sympathy.
    The weatherman our trust, our punctual Company


    We steal from beggars and ask for understanding.
    We lie, rape, steal and murder to make tonights headlines.
    Trust the System, make your contribution.
    Smile, applaud, love, hail. The weaker you get, the stronger they become.


    Listen in silence, hear her voice.
    How far are we ready to take this?

    Listen in silence, hear her voice.
    Before it all crumbles.

    Lie, rape, steal and murder.
    smile, applaud, love, hail.

    Listen in silence, hear her voice.
    How far are we ready to take this?

    Listen in silence, hear her voice.
    Before it all crumbles.

    General CommentReminds me of System.


    This is definetely some of Anders BEST SINGING EVER.
    Just listen!
    Maybe not the best song, but Anders does an astounding vocal prestation.


    I doubt we'll be hearing this one live, though.. :-(

    General Commentthis album has amazing lyrics

    my favs so far are this, reflect the storm and crawl through knives


    im guessing this song would be about how much humans suck, but i think theres significance in "the weaker you get the stronger they become" and "listen in silence hear HER voice" that im not getting
