"The World is Growing Loud" as written by Joakim Montelius and Eskil Simonsson....
The world is growing loud.
It's time for us to fade away.
I wish that I could say.

The lights are going out.
We knew they had to go one day.
I wish to take this in.

The skies are falling down.
Too late for us to change out minds.
I wish to keep us safe.

The times are changing fast.
We knew they wouldn't last this long.
I had to keep the pace.

The world is growing loud.
It's time for us to fade away.
I wish that I could stay.

    General CommentThe end of the world? Considering periods of war, famine, and violence, I think it means that it is too late, we knew they wouldn't last this long.. we know we are violent, and our time is coming.

    General CommentLyrics are alittle bit off,

    The world is growing loud
    It's time for us to fade
    To grey
    I wish they'll let us stay
    The lights are going out
    We knew we had to go
    One day
    I wish they'll take us in
    The skies are falling down
    Too late for us to change
    Our minds
    I wish they'll keep us safe
    The times are changing fast
    We knew we wouldn't last
    This long
    I hope they'll keep the pace
    The world is growing loud
    It's time for us to fade
    Away
    I wish they'll let us stay


    To me, this song can be interpreted as the visualization, as seen from a bystander watching the earth slowly deteriorate under the sheer armount of humans on the planet, as we are using up more resources than nature can provide us with, hence "The world is growing loud" can be taken as overpopulation.

    On another perspective, it could be taken as a view from a relationship.
