"Carved In Stone" as written by and Jonas Per/aelvestam Kjellgren....
You're never alone
Still you're on your own
You cannot see the light
Although you face the sun

The things you see
Are filtered through belief so strong
Passed on through DNA and society
I could never believe that the veil
I saw just came from my mind
The illusion is gone

A swarming pattern of frequencies
Is what this would be?
Without the decoders called the eyes
Bent into shape as thoughts define what you see
Losing its true form to human misery

Wait, resist the ones who feed upon your sorrow
Those who whisper lies to bring the veil in sight
Fate is not the guilt and failures of tomorrow
Fixed and carved in stone, there s nothing of the kind

You cannot really see me in this earthly dome
So avoid judging me, stay silent
Keep in mind that all is veiled
Only fragments of your mind
Now change has begun

Came from my mind, the illusion is gone

A swarming pattern of frequencies
Is what this would be?
Without the decoders called the eyes
Bent into shape as thoughts define what you see
Losing its true form to human misery

Wait, resist the ones who feed upon your sorrow
Those who whisper lies to bring the veil in sight
Fate is not the guilt and failures of tomorrow
Fixed and carved in stone
There s nothing of the kind

    General CommentI think this song is exploring the idea that what we think we see is just a perception. We can't prove for certain that anything is how we see it is because everything we see is just a perception formed from our own thoughts and feelings which are passed on through "DNA and Society." In this song I think the writer is saying how human thoughts negatively affect our perception of the world - "losing its true form to human misery." The line about a swarming pattern of frequencies reminds of somewhat of the matrix...what if our world was just a matrix...how do we know it isnt? Maybe everything you see is just an illusion...reality is just a point of view after all!

    Just to quote something from Ghost in the Shell:

    "...And can you offer me proof of your existence? How can you when neither modern science nor philosophy can even explain what life is?"

    Thought-provoking stuff! It's nice to hear music that makes you think!

    General CommentI think it's more about deception and not listening to those who tell you what to think and what to do. That you create your own fate, "fixed and carved in stone, there's nothing of the kind," and you should grasp that opportunity with your own two hands and not let "those who whisper lies to bring the veil in sight" control it for you.
