"Martyr" as written by and Bjoern Ove Ingemar/strid Strid....
Take the angels away
The only ones who knew
Already knew my name

Time we know for a war
To be the only one who ever knew the way

Don’t be a martyr it will be alright

I can see you run out
But still you make the most of making the most

I don’t want no body to haunt me
Every time I see your face in the night
I know
It’s all the voice in my head.

Time time it’s only time
I feel the colorful things that I did
I know its all the voice in my head

Take the anger away
So many come so many seem to go that way

It’s on now
Digging a hole in the soul
To see the confines of the mental overload

You melted it all down

I don’t want no body to haunt me
Every time I see your face in the night
I know
It’s all the voice in my head.

But still you make the most of making the most.
I can see you’ve run out
But still you make the most of making the most.

    General CommentSounds to me like it's about someone close to you committing suicide, or the fear of them doing so. "Don't be a martyr, it will be alright!" God, I love that line.

    General CommentARGH!! This song had so much potential to be awesome! Everything works so well and then it just falls away! It could have been so much more.

    Definetly an anti suicide song. I just wish there had been more to it.

    General CommentWell, how i look at martyr, it's not for some one who actually who suffers death, it could be any suffering, and that's what acutally talks about in the song.

    War and violence, all these words could possibly apply against the system or even estrangement.

    Talks about color and then anger.
    Color was taken away with the sufferings and replaced with anger.
