"Iron Mask" as written by Jonas Fredrik Bj�rler, Anders Bj�rler, Per Jensen, Peter Dolving and Patrik Jensen....
These are the tools at hand
and this is what you came for.
So rest your faith on some
solemn note.
When I give up on you it's not me being callous.
Send me a letter, tell me
how it's going.
Just stay the fuck away from me, until you reach
some understanding,
I give up.

The first one is the worst one,
took all I thought I ever had.
Well, maybe it's supposed to hurt some, but I can face it knowing;
That after all this there will be some kind of prize to find,
but I'm not the man to chance it anymore.
I spent a lifetime being locked up
in expectancy
dreaming of truce.

Without these chains and iron mask to drag me down
through veils of bone and bloodline
I can see the lie

It's up to you now
completion of this
eyes staring blindly
back at nothing

So this is where it ends, your promises mean nothing.
I will leave you here to die.
Alone.
A pale shadow of what was once.

    General Commentwell it's hard to say what peter dolving is specifically referring to as "you", but this song could apply to anyone who gave everything they had only to be left in the dust, and never finding the "truce" he was looking for. It kind of refers to a line in another song from this album, "All my life i've been lonely, for no good reason".
