"Calculate The Apocalypse" as written by and Per Fredrik/ohlsson Nilsson....
Awaiting a cosmic collision
The igniting of the visible world
Unpredictable asteroid impact
Monumental blast wave unleashed

Imminent undoing of this world
Unveils tragedy mixed with relief
As we give in to the end

Awaiting the atmospheric entry
Calculate the crater formation
The massive fireball expansion
Lost to thermal radiation

Imminent undoing of this world
Unveils tragedy mixed with relief
As we give in to the end

Estimate time of impact
Calculate the fatal fact
Estimate the cataclysm
Calculate the apocalypse

Technology
Facing defeat
An industry tainted with deceit
Activity
Done secretly
Chosen survivors find security

Imminent undoing of this world
Unveils tragedy mixed with relief
As we give in to the end

Estimate time of impact
Calculate the fatal fact
Estimate the cataclysm
Calculate the apocalypse

    General CommentThis song is similar to 2012 in meaning. It describes the idea of apocalyptical events and the end of mankind! I like the line "tragedy mixed with relief." As if it would somehow bring peace to the world.

    General CommentI think this is more than literally an asteroid impact. Especially considering the previous songs in the album, it must be about the way humans destroy Earth by not using green energy because of the way the global industry works (tainted with deceit) or because of a nuclear war. We know what we're doing, yet we can't stop - "we give in to the end". Again and again we have concluded how detrimental our effect is on the environment, hence the name of the song.

    One part that is noteworthy but possibly overlooked is "chosen survivors find security" - I remember there was a facility build especially in case of a worldwide disaster (nuclear war to be precise) to provide shelter for a select few.
