"I Know the Reaper" as written by Robert Johan Olof Stjarnstrom, Andreas Gunnar Stefan Gerdin, Kahl Henrik Hellmer, Tomas Ivar Eugene Nilsen and Jonas Kristoffer Rorling....
It ain't always merry
To notice there's a line.
Life is kinda scary
When you are left behind.
All the loved ones lost to you
Used to be somewhere
You know you will follow too
And you don't really care to just go nowhere.

And so you keep them all alive
(In your head)
I tell you I know The Reaper.
No light and no eternal life
(What I said)
I tell you I know The Reaper.

Sweetest of all lies
One of everlasting life.
No one wants to die
But we do, so we hide.
What you fail to realize
Is there's no need to fear
You live on in the hearts and minds
Of those who hold you dear, who are right here.

And so you keep them all alive
(In your head)
I tell you I know The Reaper.
No light and no eternal life
(What I said)
I tell you I know The Reaper.

All the others.
They already know The Reaper.
All the others.
They already know The Reaper.

And so you keep yourself alive
(In your head)
You don't wanna know The Reaper
No light and no eternal life
(What I said)
I tell you I know The Reaper

    General CommentYeah, it's kind of obvious. People pretend like they, and their loved ones, are never going to die because they're afraid of it. It also claims that there is no heaven, you only live on in others' memories.
