These things moved me when I turned my back.
Now I return with open hands.
I found light that lead me to the shrine where children sang and pilgrims mourned.
I was lost but not alone.
From a distance they come alive. Sleepwalking across the plains.
No answers were found here.
Seeking shelter in her embrace.
Down on sore knees.
Erase and begin.
Under my eyelids, come forth light.

    General Commentfinland is bleak and barren, the people here are quiet and melancholic, but still we would stand up for our swedish brothers if the need turned urgent and real. sure we might fight over icehockey matches, but if another country would try to fuck with sweden, we would be there to kick that country's ass alongside with the swedes.

    so from the prologue to my view on the meaning of the song: i think it's about how swedish people might experience finland in comparison to other nordic countries like norway, danmark and iceland. the finnish language isn't a germanic language like swedish, norwegian, danish or icelandic and this is why they feel lost here, but still we share a connection that somehow binds us, so our swedish neighbours don't feel alone, but amongst their brethren.

    i could be totally off, but this is how i see the song.
