"Betrayal/Forgiveness" as written by and Perttu Kivilaakso....
All that I ever wanted
To understand my nightmares
Possessed by my fears
Betrayed by my pride
Alone I wandered in the deepest dark
Seeking comfort from the vanity
Each time I escaped the real
My soul died, died a bit more
Confronting the evil within
Praying for my angel to appear
Agonized whisper into the emptiness
Begging for salvation - salvation for this cursed mind
Words without meaning
Touch without feeling
I do not recognize my own face
Eyes that were once shining
Now extinguished
Left only a silent cold
Sound of a tear falling down
In the desperate hour of loneliness
This shattered heart reaching
For it's relief - the relief it cannot find
Glance without affection
Kiss without sensitivity
Promise without comprehension
Love without hope
I do not remember my own tale
Betrayed by my anger
Betrayed by my delusions
Betrayed by my lust
(I wish)
Strength - to be released from my demons
(I desire)
Wisdom - to forgive the past
To forgive me

    General CommentSounds to me like someone who's lived a bad life, lived in pride, fear, lust, etc(pretty much sin), and wants to be out of it.

    General Commentfor all of you that are so stupid as to think this song actually has words that are sang, you are wrong.
    the lyrics in the booklet is a poem that was written with the song... not sang with the song.

    General Commentthink what it means to me, this guy has a girlfriend, the girlfriend dumps him, he thinks she betrayed him, he starts being mean to her, that's the betrayal part, and the girl wants to go back out with him, the guy says yes, that is the forgiveness part

    General CommentIts about someone who was fucked over (betrayed) by their lover and they are forgiving themselves for being a fool for allowing it to happen in order that they can move on with their lives and forget that piece of shit that took advantage of their love.
