"Pacing Death's Trail" as written by and Jesper Claes Haakan/gelotte Stroemblad....
Compassion confession
Resolve and compromise
Dedication domination
Please define the lines

Mutation innovation
Bear off to sun seen
Retaliation termination
Six lives and greed

Surrender to nothing
Run as far as you can
I tried to
Hold on to what I believe in
But my heart
Is in a coma

Integration redemption
A need to be seen
Gyrated disrespected
Stand in line to be center of scene

Surrender to nothing
Run as far as you can
I tried to
Hold on to what I believe in
But my heart
Is in a coma

Surrender to nothing
Run as far as you can
I tried to
Hold on to what I believe in
But my heart
Is in a coma

    General Commentthats probably cause the lyrics are wrong and make no sense



    Compassion. Confession.
    It's all a compromise
    Dedication. Domination.
    Please, define the lines
    Irritation, Innovation.
    Paired up to succeed
    Totallation. Termination.
    Fake smiles and greed.

    Surrender to nothing.
    Or run, as far as you can.
    I'm trying to hold onto what i believe in
    But my heart is in a coma.

    Agression. Attention.
    A need to be seen.
    Directed. Disrespected.
    Stand in line to be thankful.
    Obscene.

    General CommentMmm...I think this song is about not surrendering or reaching compromises if you have to betray your ideals. But this happens very frequently in nowadays shallow society.

    In the first verse is described the situation of our society: the situation is not clear, we always try to reach compromises, we move heaven and hell to be succesful, hiding behind fake smiles our greed...

    Then we even end up to be aggressive and disrispectful just to be noticed, we throw away our dignity by ass-licking only to succeed. That's obscene.

    In the chorus we are exhorted not to surrender to any compromise in this nothingness, or at least to run as far as we can, 'cause avoiding the problems sometimes is better than doing the wrong choice.
    He wants to hold onto something he believes, but in this shallow world his heart is in a coma...he can't feel anymore.

    I agree with Ddautta, one on the heaviest song in CC, and pretty good title...it reminds us that death never stops its pace: someday, we all have to die, and we're following just death's trail while we're walking our path.

    General CommentGreat song, along with Take This Life the most brutal song on CC.
    I think it has one of the best IF song-titles ever.

    It seems to be about someone who are struggling against unsurmountable odds, (and of course loosing,) but still making a stand.
    The title refers to walking the path to death, which is the outcome of the struggle he is loosing.

    General CommentIt's about life and our walk toward the grave, we're all heading there. "We live life like it's a big party, but there's a hangover"

    General CommentThis song is sick
    Meaning:
    1)Compassions'n'Confessions is just a compromise
    2)we all have some kind of aim
    3)we do anything to suceed
    4)we can surrender to such life or try to run
    5)sometimes we can't hold onto our believes 'cause we are paralyzed or something
    6)we try to get atention of everyone by showing aggression
    Finally, we choose what we do
