"The Fallout" as written by and Peter Wilhard Ingvar/bjoerler Dolving....
Seaweeds like emerald veins
She sleep beneath the breaking weight
A silent dying ocean's slow defeat
The floods will rise and take us all

An end to all this quarrel
A final grace to rid her grief
Oh, mother, show no mercy for me

Wash the stains away, come unto me again
Open yourself beneath us all
(Swallow)
Purge the soil, burn the surface
Erase, erase the past again
(Erase)

Oh, she will sleep like
A breathing fire's kiss upon you
Oh, my darling dear walk carefully
Perhaps she'll still be there
(Wake up)

The rivers to rise again

Wash the stains away, come unto me again
Open yourself beneath us all
(Swallow)
Purge the soil, burn the surface
Erase, erase the past again
(Erase)

I am my brother’s keeper
I am my brother’s keeper
An eye for an eye until everyone’s blind
[Incomprehensible]

I’m sick of it
I’m sick of the blood
I’m sick of it

[Incomprehensible]
[Incomprehensible]
[Incomprehensible]
[Incomprehensible]

Don't you want something real?
Don't you want something real?

    General CommentI'd like other suggestions as to the meaning of this song, but from what I'm getting it's all about Mother Nature and how it will one day "Open [itself] beneath us all [and] swallow." She's a siren dying, the oceans' slow defeat and because of this the floods will rise to take us all. This is brought on by humanities eye for an eye outlook on life.

    General CommentI think that it's similar Nietzsche's Eternal Recurrence.

    He speaks about a Mother, an origin that returns like a wave to vanish again.
    He wish and end for all becouse tiredness. He is waiting a catharsis to erase pain and guilt but he knows that all will repeat. Like a Fallout.

    General CommentTaken from an interview with Peter Dolving:

    "The song itself is a prayer, a prayer for rain. A prayer for the end of this shitty thing called modern, western society."

    General Commenti think he just wants the tide to take us away... he just wants it to open up and swallow

    General Commenthmm...the lyrics are broken...heres the real deal from the official site:

    Seaweeds like emerald veins she sleep beneath the breaking weight
    A silent dying ocean's slow defeat
    The floods will rise and take us all
    An end to all this quarrel
    A final grace to rid her grief
    Oh, Mother show no mercy for me

    Wash the stains away
    Come unto me again
    Open yourself beneath us all (swallow)
    Purge the soil
    Burn the surface
    Erase, Erase
    Erase the past again

    Oh, she will sleep like a breathing fire's kiss upon you
    Oh, my darling dear walk carefully
    Perhaps she'll still be there ? (wake up!)
    The rivers to rise again

    Wash the stains away
    Come upon me again
    Open yourself beneath us all (swallow)
    Purge the soil
    Burn the surface
    Erase, Erase
    Erase the past again

    [whispering:]
    I am my brother’s keeper
    I am my brother’s keeper
    An eye for an eye until everyone’s blind
    ?...
    I’m sick of it
    I’m sick of the blood
    I’m sick of it
    ?...

    Don't you want something real
    Don't you want something real

    Song Meaningseaweeds like emerald veins, she sleeps beneath the breaking waves
    -talking about the sea

    a silent dying ocean's slow defeat
    -humans have been severely polluting the ocean over the past few centuries

    the floods will rise
    -the sea/mother nature will (hopefully) get revenge and wipe out humanity

    an end to all this quarrel
    -referring to wars/conflicts

    a final grace to rid her grief, oh mother show no mercy for me
    -the "final grace" being the flood, the singer even admits he's to blame

    wash the stains away, come unto me again, open yourself beneath us all swallow, purge the soil, burn the surface, erase the past again
    -i think he says "again" because of the story of the flood in the bible. the next verse is a bit more cryptic but open for interpretation

    i am my brother's keeper
    -talking about the earth
