"Jack Of Diamonds" as written by and Robin Joergen Sebastian/johansson Sjunnesson....
A fugitive from unreality
No sign of my god damned serenity
Lost in these barren lands
That have nothing I demand
Had to look for something new
And that day I found you
I found you
I found you

Living in a house of cards
Waiting for it all to fall
Hope for the best plan for the worst
That's what my life is all about

Living in a house of cards
Waiting for it all to fall
Hope for the best plan for the worst
That's what my life is all about

A quasar from reality
With damaged mentality
I'll start editing your life
Replace the captain of your brain ship
Before we set sail for the fail

Living in a house of cards
Waiting for it all to fall
Hope for the best plan for the worst
That's what my life is all about

Living in a house of cards
Waiting for it all to fall
Hope for the best plan for the worst
That's what my life is all about

My destiny outruns me
And I can't find that key
To lock up everything that's bad inside of me
Don't you disagree
That your life would be so much better
Without me, that isn't hard to see
Hard to see

Living in a house of cards
Waiting for it all to fall
Hope for the best plan for the worst
That's what my life is all about

Living in a house of cards
Waiting for it all to fall
Hope for the best plan for the worst
That's what my life is all about

Living in a house of cards
Waiting for it all to fall
Hope for the best plan for the worst
That's what my life is all about

Living in a house of cards
Waiting for it all to fall
Hope for the best plan for the worst
That's what my life is all about

    General CommentIm not really sure, but it seems like he knows his destiny and there is nothing he can do to change it.

    He knows its going to happen, but is not sure when. He hopes for the best, but plans for his destiny.

    It out runs him, he cant change his destiny.

    General Commentthat sounds pretty accurate. That interpretation makes me think of the Christian outlook on all of our destiny. WIth the Antichrist and stuff. We know its coming, have no idea when, and we're hoping to God it's not in our life time. But many are prepared for it to happen and are constantly watching for signs. I know I am. The future plans this government is making seem WAY too close to the signs the bible gives in revelations...

    General CommentI think that this song is about how the governments turn their backs on the people. I mean, we have all seen the anarchistic influences in SS's later songs, like "Revolution, Baby", "Burn This City", "Power Shift" so forth and et cetera. This song in particular feels to me like a cry for help, they know what will come, but they can't really do anything about it... Actually this whole album is in my mind their own thoughts of giving up, whereas the songs from the new album (that are currently released) are the more cocky versions.
