You borrowed the moment, betray your own heavens
The darkness is thickening, breathing is harder
[Balance is off], some take more than give back
That attitude, ignorance, proved to be fatal
With that tiny spark, that lit our way,
You poisoned the ash and you stayed away
His wish to be one of us, follow the trail
Take the time offered, don't toss it away

Requesting no trial, defendant is guilty,
And we are the judges and sentence the jury,
To pay for forgiveness with silent contentments
Stand in the line with the rest of us

We cannot carry you further today
Hear what you don't say
That's help in many ways
Need you to learn how to cry without darkness
Face like the others the pain that is harmless

[Chorus:]
Feel the world has let you down
Somehow we cannot see this
Have to bear the winter burn
You can only wait (?)

It will fade with time

Secrets in silence, the stench of treason
To blow off the darkness you brought in the daylight
They'll kill you, must kill you, there's no such mercy
Rules of the nature are fair and cruel
We cannot wait for you
For Him, or forever,
Don't make us walk away
Packs stay together

Fear will be justified
(Will be there a soul?)
Things that you do will affect us too

[Chorus;]
Feel the world has let you down
Somehow we cannot see this
Have to bear the winter burn
You can only (?) fate

It will fade with time

Where's your trust?
Where's your heart?
Where's your soul?
Who's your friend?
Who'll be there in the end?
Who do you call a friend?
Should we start to believe?

A lot of things are changing
And rearranging
I have to say I saw it coming
Yet did nothing
In the darkest of times
We all (?) in the right (for the moon)

(The floor) shared the idea
To give you the chance to free us again
to bite off the feeding hand

Counting one to see
what's defying gravity

[Solo]

(Well, would a) well-fed puppy?
You are too confident and careless to cut it
Had no rules, that is to change
Are you forever run alone?, you never will
The little child of the wild,
You gotta skin great coats, bake hate,

No, you cannot hide behind your glowing lights
You bear the sign and it won't fade
It won't fade

[Chorus:]
Feel the world has let you down
Somehow we cannot see this
Have to bear the winter burn
You can only (?)
It will fade with time

    General CommentThis is said to be Unia's "wolf" song. While Full Moon was about a werewolf, Wolf and Raven and The Cage seemed to be about imprisonment, and Ain't Your Fairytale appears to be about being hunted, It Won't Fade is about betrayal.

    General CommentActually, these lyrics are wrong it should be:
    You borrow the moment, betray your own heavens
    The darkness is thickening, breathing gets harder
    The balance is off, some take more than give back,
    the attitude, ignorance, proved to be fatal

    for that tiny spark that led our way
    you poisoned the air, should you stay away, hence
    Wish to be one of us, follow the trail
    Take the time offered, don't toss it away

    travesty, no trial, defendant is guilty
    and we are the judges and sentence the jury
    to pay for forgiveness with silent contentment
    Stand in the line with the rest of us

    We cannot carry you further today
    hear what you don't say, thus help... in any way
    Need you to learn how to cry without darkness
    Face like the others the pain that is harmless

    Feel the world has let you down
    somehow, we cannot see this
    Have to bear the winterburn
    You can only wait, if it will fade with time

    Secrecy, silence, a stench of treason
    the glow of the darkness, you brought in the daylight
    The cure will not kill you, there's no such mercy.
    rules of the nature are fair and cruel...

    we cannot wait for you, for limbo, forever
    don't make us walk away, packs stay together
    Fear would be justified. Will be there soon.
    The things that you do will infect us too

    Feel the world has let you down
    somehow, we cannot see this
    Have to bear the winterburn
    You can only wait, if it will fade with time

    Where's your trust, where's your heart, where's your soul?
    Who's your friend? Who'll be there in the end?

    Who do you call a friend...
    should we start to bewail?

    a lot of things are changing
    and re-arranging
    I have to say I saw it coming
    yet did nothing...
    In the darkest of times
    B.o.B's earn the right for the name

    Not all shared the idea to give you the chance to
    fail us again, to bite off
    the feeding hand...

    counting one, two...see?
    odds defying the gravity...

    we'll move along, well fed puppy...
    you are too confident and careless to cut it
    had no rules, that is to change
    or you'll forever run alone

    but you never will, the little child of the wild
    you've got a skin, gray coat, they hate
    no, you cannot hide behind your glowing eyes
    you bear the sign and it won't fade

    Feel the world has let you down
    somehow, we cannot see this
    Have to bear the winterburn
    You can only wait if it will fade with time

    General CommentI'd have thought The Vice is UNIA's wolf song.

    General CommentYes, lyrics are wrong, but I don't see any way of fixing them, so, oh well.

    This song is starting to make a lot more sense to me. What I understand of it it has to do with a wolf clan and the heir of the clan is a young wolf who doesn't follow any of the traditions of the clan because he believes them to be wrong. The elders want him to see that he has a burden - to carry on the name of the clan ("B.o.B's earn the right to the name" is the most important line in the song supporting this) and that no matter what he does, it will never change ("It Won't Fade") because this is his role in life.


    Very self explanatory, I don't see why people are having so much trouble with this one.

    General CommentAlready posted this, but here it is again:


    This song is starting to make perfect sense, and I think it's really self explanatory when you read through the lyrics. From what I understand of it it has to do with a wolf clan and the heir of the clan is a young wolf who doesn't follow any of the traditions of the clan because he believes them to be wrong. The elders want him to see that he has a burden - to carry on the name of the clan ("B.o.B's earn the right to the name" is the most important line in the song supporting this) and that no matter what he does, it will never change ("It Won't Fade") because this is his role in life.


    FWIW, The Vice has NOTHING to do with wolves or animals of any sort.

    General CommentIt obviously isn't... intentionally. Why would Jani play and sing on a song about his own treachery?

    But heck if the lyrics don't fit perfectly. Every single line could be attributed to the situation with Jani. It's disturbing.

    General CommentI think its about betrayall too, just like SonataArctica. Maybe its linked to Jani but it would but stupid as he play on the song.

    To me, it sounds like the "heir" of the pack getting tamed. Some lyrics jsut sounds like it:

    Not all shared the idea to give you the chance to
    fail us again, to bite off
    the feeding hand...


    we'll move along, well fed puppy...


    you've got a skin, gray coat, they hate


    Those as exemple just make me feels he is slowly getting away from the pack. He seems important so the others wolves want him to get back and to "bite the feeding hand", who looks like an human giving him food to tame it, explaining why he's a "well fed puppy". Even if one human tame him, he still got "the gray coat that they hate" and he won't be able to live with humans. The pack know that they are the only to be able to trust him to the end "Who's your friend? Who'll be there in the end?", but "they cannot wait for (him), for limbo, forever, don't make us walk away, packs stay together".
