"Artificial Sun Projection" as written by and Per Fredrik/ohlsson Nilsson....
An invented sun, rays reflecting the cosmic glow
Perceptive radiance
Our invented gods halt the active mind
No alteration, alteration

Illusory acts in circles, count the days and nights
Earth time
Finding the only way out means to arise, ascend
I shall ascend

Form the passing time, building day and night

Thy will be done, shape the sand to hours
My time will come, clear as day the signs
Conceptional, shape the hands of ours
Your will's been done since the dawn of time

Forever to renew the universe
Waiting as cold daylight turns into night
Turns into night

An invented sun, rays reflecting the cosmic glow
Perceptive radiance
Our invented gods halt the active mind
No alteration, alteration

Thy will be done, shape the sand to hours
My time will come, clear as day the signs
Conceptional, shape the hands of ours
Your will's been done since the dawn of time

Shape the sand to hours
Clear as day the signs
Shape the hands of ours
Since the dawn of time

    My InterpretationI think its about how our gods and religions, which are merely deceptive inventions and illusions, cause us to ignorantly accept the religious explanations for the universe, halting our active minds. This makes us unwilling to seek alternative answers to ultimate questions, preventing us from fully experiencing all the mystery and wonder of the universe, and discovering the revelations that science has to offer us.

    However, I don't think that its necessarily an atheistic song. It doesn't condemn the concept of God, but suggests that blind belief in religious teachings stunts mankind's development. It is possible to believe in both God and Science, but just like the rest of civilisation, religion must change, develop and adapt as the human race becomes more advanced.

    As the Sun is the "giver of life" for our planet, the "Artificial Sun" may be a metaphor for God, and "No alteration" may reference the reluctance of religious believers to alter and adapt their beliefs and teachings, or possibly mankind's lack of development.
