"After the Rain" as written by Hakan Wirenstrand, Erik Oskar Bodin, Fredrik Daniel Wallin and Yukimi Eleanora Nagano....
After the rain

And after the rain the temperature dropped
And covered in ice was my window top
I say goodbye, I wave my hand
As a thousand doves fly
Across the blackened night

After the rain we forget
We make sure we gain, then we leave it
‘Cause we’re a nation of forgetters
Oh, after the rain we pretend
It’s easier to begin without looking back

‘Cause all at once air so thin
And there’s nothing left to breathe in

After the rain we forget
After the rain we forget

Behind the dream so rosy and red
A pile of things to forget
A voice of the past tiptoes in
A cracking, a ghost whispering

After the rain we forget
We make sure we gain, then we leave it
‘Cause were a nation of forgetters

After the rain we forget
After the rain we forget

People, where have you been?
Have you been hiding in your big houses?
And people, after the rain, will your life
Will it ever be the same?

Oh, people, what will you do
When your luck, when it turns on you?
People, after the rain, will your life
Will it ever be the same?

After the rain we forget

    "Have you been hiding

    "We make sure we gain then we leave it"

    "'Cause were a nation of forgetters"


    This song sounds to me like the other side of the American Dream. Just talking about how we don't think about the bad things we've done in the past to get where we are or what's sacrificed to get the things we want. It all just seems very materialistic and fake to me. Like the Stepford Wives thing where everything's perfect and fine when really it's not.

    General CommentWell, personally I haven't seen this too much, but geeze, I sure learn from my mistakes. I make sure I don't forget mine.
    :P
    But I'm glad some people don't because this song is bomb.

    General CommentI feel like they wouldn't say "we" if they were talking about America, although it certainly can relate to America. Maybe they mean the world, or maybe shit's real fucked up in Sweden (although I know it isn't)
