"Affliction" as written by and Robin Joergen Sebastian/johansson Sjunnesson....
This is no ordinary demon
I've been down this road before
Driven by the wounds I couldn't hide
I know exactly where it goes
So I guess there's no tomorrow
And I can't remember yesterday
Locked in a time lapse
And it's soul crushing to say

At the end of my elbow
You'll find one golden rule
A ferocious discharge
You will hit the ground hard

I don't know, I don't care
And I don't understand
Why they dignify iniquity
I don't know, I don't care
And I don't understand
Why they justify rapacity

Left humanity behing long ago
Take a look into my world
So many places where I don't belong
Eradicate what I've become

A ferocious discharge
You will hit the ground hard

I don't know, I don't care
And I don't understand
Why they dignify iniquity
I don't know, I don't care
And I don't understand
Why they justify rapacity
I don't know, I don't care
And I don't understand
There's an oven waiting for you in hell
You'll be reaping what you sow in life
What you sow in life
What you sow in life

Had to put you in the place
And wipe that smile off your face
You can put a king's cloths on a scarecrow
In the end it's still just a scarecrow
Still just a scarecrow

I don't know, I don't care
And I don't understand
Why they dignify iniquity
I don't know, I don't care
And I don't understand
Why they justify rapacity
I don't know, I don't care
And I don't understand
There's an oven waiting for you in hell
You'll be reaping what you sow in life
What you sow in life
What you sow in life

You're the affliction
You'll pay what you owe

Don't understand
You're the affliction
Why they justify
You'll pay what you owe

Don't understand
You're the affliction
Why they dignify
You'll pay what you owe

Don't understand
You're the affliction
Why they justify
You'll pay what you owe

Don't understand
You're the affliction
Why they dignify
You'll pay what you owe

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs in their album LaoD.
    But anyways this is what I think the song means

    Song Title:
    Lets look at the song title, Affliction. It means something causing pain, or agony.

    Beginning:
    That the singer is lonely and doesnt fit in with anyone, and no one really wants him.

    Middle:
    That there are people that are causing pain to him and that everyone thinks its alright to do it, since hes an outcast.

    Ending:
    That in the long run the people that are doing this to him will get payback, or "Pay what they owe".

    Thats what I think the song means, im most likely wrong tho >.<
