"Tilt" as written by Bjorn Gelotte, Anders Friden and Jesper Stromblad....
We all find ourselves,
In honor of the good cause
How empty we've become
With our sight to be the true force

Does every instinct say you're right?
I think sometimes there is doubt.

[Chorus:]
You're waiting for a re-run,
But yesterday won't come.
Want to relive the moment,
But yesterday is done.

Lies and desperation lead us through as we're trying to be heroic,
I swept the world to watch you manage.
Take a step back,
I'll tie you to it.

[Chorus]

Hopes and prayers in pursuit of salvation,
Take a short cut, it only bends our cause.
But as far as I remember,
There is nothing that will get back the days you lost.

Does every instinct say you're right?
I think sometimes there is doubt.

{Chorus]

    General CommentIf you look at the EP cover btw, you can see "The Jester Race" in the background...
    They've moved on from that.. They've enjoyed it, but they have grown into something bigger! Something more!

    General CommentI think these lyrics are almost correct...I'm not too sure on the second verse though, can't really make out what he's saying. Corrections are appreciated! Anyway it's a great song, and again I think the meaning is about how the past can't be changed and is gone...maybe about regrets or perhaps moving on to the future.

    General CommentI can't help but get the feeling this song is about people who whine about the evolution of In Flames... Read the lyrics, it makes perfect sense.

    And I mean look at the whole EP... The cover for instance; study it a little and I think you'll see how this single might be about In Flames' current relationship with their past

    I'd say this is about how you all whiny "true fans" of IF make them feel like they're villains for creating music for themselves, not to your personal tastes.

    General CommentYou may have a poitn there Lancerone, the whole EP seems to be about forgetting the past and moving on etc. And also it does seem like with this album In Flames have found their own sound...it just seems more defined and complete somehow. It's very different from their old stuff and its not going to the same but if you ask me it's just as good!

    General CommentI agree with Lance on this one, completely.

    So many of their fans have been bitching about how they miss the days of "The Jester Race" and "Whoracle"

    Don't get me wrong, those albums are both great, but We, as their fans, need to support them! If everything they wrote sounded the same, would you really be their fans?

    If we don't evolve and further what we have become, we'll be stuck in a rut, doing the same god damn, mindless nonsense everyday!

    That's what "The Mirror's Truth" is about, It's about breaking away from the past, the routines, and the watchful eyes of others!

    "You're Waiting for a Re-run, but yesterday won't come"
    Move on, They're not going to revert to what they used to be, Accept it!
    They need to play music for themselves, and those of us who enjoy it, and have liked them since "The Lunar Strain" and continue to do so, up until this point... We are the true fans of In Flames, Because just like the band, who are people too, We can move on, and evolve!

    General CommentI think it has to do with religion. The:

    "Does every instinct say you're right?
    I think sometimes there is doubt."

    means and that no one really knows for sure what is going to happen when we die or what the meaning of life is, no one can walk the earth and think that they are wrong about what they believe is a fundamentalist.
    The meaning of the text is that we should think about what we do, is it really ok to do the things we do?
    Is it ok to say that the lord wants war?

    "Hopes and prayers in pursuit of salvation,
    Take a short cut, it only bends our cause.
    But as far as I remember,
    There is nothing that will get back the days you lost."

    This is the main massage imo, the easy way is a religion. Should you join a religion to find the answers to all problems that is bugging you?
    the yesterday lines could be about:
    a)
    This era shouldn't be about religion, since science has given answer to most question that religion previously tried to answer we should abandon it, that is what the lines about a past time refers to.
    b)
    Living by the bible is a waste of time, who do really know that it is the right religion, all the days you spend living by the bible will never come again, so live like every day will be your last.

    General Comment"If everything they wrote sounded the same, would you really be their fans?" - trobble

    Dipshit, jester race, whoracle, colony, clayman, are all fucking different, yet laced.

    And about this song. I like it.
    I like the songs I've heard so far expect for "The Mirror's Truth". That was just shit.
