"The Dread" as written by and Frisk/wallin/soderstrom/pettersson/palsson/larsson....
Come on over, let me show you what it really means
To be frustrated sexually, to be in need
To be in state of dissolution, level down

Let that sensual desire take the upper hand
It stays in this room

Lost in the dark
Forbidden, touch me again

That's when love causes the dread
Was it worth it? Anxiety grows
You end up hurting all of your friends
People get by every day with the shame

There's no promises, just a memory before you leave
The soft endearment, I hear you breathe
Our lips are meeting in good fusion, higher drive

Be the spark, be the fire, set alight on me
Give in to this time

No need for the heart
This is now, tomorrow we cry

That's when love causes the dread
Was it worth it? Anxiety grows
You end up hurting all of your friends
People get by every day with the shame

That's when love causes the dread
Was it worth it? Anxiety grows
You end up hurting all of your friends
That's when love causes the dread

That's when love causes the dread
Was it worth it? Anxiety grows
You end up hurting all of your friends
That's when love causes the dread

    My Interpretationlol learned this point the hard way,, guess I didn't listen close enough the summer I got it on my iPod :( It simply warning of the remorse and lostness you dIVE into when you don't guard yourself from your own sexual impulses, always alwAYS. Knowing it was dead wrong, I thought it'll be easy to deal with after I know what its like and I'm gratified. -besides I wont go all the way, it can't be that wrong...
    for the rest of the summer I felt watered down, diluted, stained, cheap, I couldn't shut it in by fall and I told someone, apologized to the guy In hopes that he would confront himself and make it right. I lost 14 lbs, the winter was daunting and terrifying and I felt weak but better (listening to Takida for hours helped:) The following Summer sun, congenial, bright, benign, soothed me and I pretty much got “back in wack”, but dear, ANYONE whos reading this, no-strings attached sex aint worth it. Listen to the Takida songs Score and No Reason Why, they teach the same thing.
