"I'm the Highway" as written by Bjorn Gelotte, Anders Friden and Jesper Stromblad....
I am my deepest shadow,
Something I can't ever neglect,
Rise above these ashes,
Before they fade away

In dark moments, I know better,
Within destruction, I see clearly

[Chorus]
From here to new grounds,
Suppose I will do it alone,
Will fight for that design,
Feel this up your conviction

Staring into truth,
I am, the way,
Existence careful made,
In all your everlasting complications

In dark moments,I know better
Within destruction, I see clearly

[Chorus]

Forget the promised land,
There was never an invitation,
Today I create my own,
Before there was sorrow and lack of attention

[Chorus]

    General Comment"Existence carefull made,"
    I think its "Existence care for me/ In all your everlasting complication"
    It certainly makes more sense.

    General CommentI think the part "Before they fade away" is rather "Walk forth and fade away". And I hear the part "Will fight for that design" as "Would it fight through black, this tide".

    General Commentnow that you mention it, it does indeed sound like "Walk forth and fade away", but I'm not sure about "Would it fight through black, this tide".. I'm gonna put it up anyway, since I was sceptic about "Will fight for that design" from the moment I wrote it down. Cheers for the corrections

    General Commentimo the song is about how you can achieve anything you set your mind to, and how no wall is strong enough to hold you back from your dreams..

    General CommentAfter slowing it down and listening to it over and over it sounds to me like he saying:

    From here to new grounds,
    Suppose I will do it alone,
    Would it fight through black, DECIDE
    Feel this up your conviction.

    Almost 100% sure.

    General CommentThe chorus is actually:

    From here to new grounds,
    Suppose I'll be doing it alone,
    With a smile through black design,
    Fearless of your conviction

    That's what is says on the lyrics booklet on the album.

    General CommentThis song is awesome...as always.

    To me, this song is about an individual who has come to a realization that they are their own best friend and they must remember it is only themself whom they can trust and rely upon in this world. The lyrics may also be implying he doesn't need to rely upon God or any faith to journey through life.

    The "ashes" symbolising the consequences, losses, and the remains of every bridge he probably ever burnt.

    "In dark moments,I know better,
    Within destruction, I see clearly"
    He finds that when he is in touch with his problems and emersed in his emotions he gains greater clarity and insight.

    "From here to new grounds,
    Suppose I'll be doing it alone,"
    He'll trasnfomr form his essence and entity from the darkness that has consumed him to "new grounds" for a fresh start and to renew his persona.

    "With a smile through black design,
    Fearless of your conviction"
    I'm not really sure what the first line means, maybe he'll go forth on his own, with positivity that was created through his 'darkness', not fearing the judegment and prosecution he may face by others, even God.

    "Staring into truth,
    I am the highway,
    Existence care for me,
    In all your everlasting complications"
    He can see the direction in his life, which he must take to undergo trasnformation, rgardless of whatever obstacles life may throw at him towards his journey to "new ground", it only confirms his existsnce in this world.

    "Forget the promised land,
    There was never an invitation,
    Today I create my own,
    Before there was sorrow and lack of attention"
    He was consumed in his darkness when hoping for God or others to help him move towards the light. But now he realises that it is him and him alone that controls his own happiness and paradise in this life, and thus instead of waiting for God or anyone else to lay it out for him, he takes initiate to create his own sense of purpose and direction in life.
