"The Drowning" as written by and Peter Wilhard Ingvar/bjoerler Dolving....
High on fire and solid confidence
Truthful rantings but no one is listening
Check collateral, sweep the corners
The fear of words in a fucked-up reality

Steal my freedom of speech my liberty
Fail my rights to express myself
All this half-lied semperfi stone-faced bullshit
Infecting me to deplete my design

I'm drowning in the fear of gods
The more I see the less I want
I was not raised to shut my mouth
But as long as it holds me
I'll fight it and scold it
All my life !

Merge and fold to avoid complexity
All we know is a backfire parody
Know your place see no malady
Shut your hole and accept the abuse
Let it burn ! Let it burn ! Let it burn !
I don't care if we all go down
Let it burn ! Let it burn ! Let it burn !
I don't care if we all go down

I'm drowning in the fear of gods
The more I see the less I want
I was not raised to shut my mouth
But as long as it holds me
I'll fight it and scold it
All my life !

As I close my eyes I can see it now
In sepia twilight sundown to the sound of electrical eyes
The obedient sons and the daughters all perfectly in line
All hail, raised hands in impeccable synchronicity

I'm drowning in the fear of gods
The more I see the less I want
I was not raised to shut my mouth
But as long as it holds me
I'll fight it and scold it
All my life !

    General Commentsounds like he is referring to religion trying to take over the world by instilling fear in people... "truthful rantings (denouncing religion) but no one is listening". "Merge and fold to avoid complexity (avoiding complex life questions by using religion to answer them) All we know is a backfire parody (the bible/or other religion literature)" "Know your place see no malady (you can't look at religion as brain wash or a disease because it is not your place to)
    Shut your hole and accept the abuse (you can't talk bad about it and you must accept it the way others do)"
    "The obedient sons and the daughters all perfectly in line All hail, raised hands in impeccable synchronicity (his nightmare of religion being taken too far)"

    I originally got this idea because of these portions:
    "All this half-lied semperfi stone-faced bullshit"...
    "I'm drowning in the fear of gods, The more I see the less I want"

    This is just a guess, I hope to hear other peoples opinions on this song.
