And here you are
So much time did you waste from times before
So shut down your sky
Bow down, lights out and die.

And now you go
The cold chill cracks, a positive self-detach
Inanimate heart
Hurting razor throat.

A destined goodbye
Bells rang out the day of your worst fear
Obscure graduation day
Left you but with memories to bear
Lost in hopelessness
Seclusion cut you just as deep as knives
Dissolving the bonds
Time was set to fade away your lives.

You said you would - Always give your love
You said you would - Always be caring
You said you would - Never abandon
You said you would.

    General CommentHow has no one commented on this song?! it's absolutely amazing, one of the best Katatonia songs.

    Also, it's proof that new Katatonia isn't always as bland as most of the songs on GCD.

    What I think of when I hear this song (isn't necessarily what it's about, but) is someone with a lot of friends at school, but the second school ends everyone they knew leaves, and they're no longer friends. Leaving the person wondering if any of them were friends in the first place.

    Just my two cents.

    General CommentThis song was the first Katatonia song I'd heard , now its been almost 2 years that I'm into Katatonia.
    I believe this song is about how someone lost his/her loved one due to today's fast life , the one who abandoned , moved on to "bigger and better" things... but the one who has been abandoned thinks those "bigger and better" things were never meant to take the place of a loved one...
