False
The dream is so far
Come and take the consequence
Few things are as certain
Winter state
Oppressive wait

Evacuate
Assemble here
Soil's song
In your throat
Future death
In your reach
Who's first
Okay

Mask
Your face well hidden
Keep your last words in your hand
Fold it and open up
Time to go
Release the glow

Evacuate
Assemble here
Soil's song
In your throat
Future death
In your reach
Who's first
Okay

False...

    General CommentJonas Renske puts it best himself

    "Well, it isn't about suicide bombers specifically, rather about how some people are willing to sacrifice anything in the name of what they believe in. Be it for religious, revolutionary or other reasons... Interesting theme indeed but difficult to write about. No propaganda folks.

    Jonas"

    General CommentThis song I think is about people who will kill in the name of religion. It is it depressing.

    General CommentThe Great Cold Distance is my first listened to Katatonia album. I must say this song kicks so much ass. Any meanings behind it?

    General CommentIt seems like an obvious theme to me. Death: Death in a very modernized setting where a group of people have gathered in hope of survival; Only to find that it will not be so as they are forced to face death and the "Soil's Song" Calling them down.

    General CommentSentimental beyond sentimental, nothing left, barren, depression suicide, crying, heart sore, chills to the core, a freezing warm chill.
