"The business of living" as written by Robert Ljung and Jacob Papinniemi....
We need everyone's attention!
There are words that must be said
We will never bite our tongues again,
because everything they hold is the greatest lie
And I
watch the sun go down over an empty street
But no one of us sleeps tonight
We are the ones who must make a stand

As it all comes down to this
We, we are the ones who must make a stand
We, we are the ones!

And even though we at times seem helpless,
we must always strive forward

On the brightest path I recall your name
Yet the shadows settles in for the very first time
Hands are shaking cold
Heartbeats racing fast
But tonight it's heart and soul versus none

Don't lose hope!
This isn't over yet
We are staring at the beginning
We will not stand for the business of our living
C-c-c-come on and dance away
Another year of disaster!

C-c-c-come on and dance away
Another year of disaster!

We need everyone to listen up!
To the frailty words that we say!
Bring back our fucking strength - pick up yourself
In a world filled with hate -
We are the hope!
We are the cure!

(We are the cure)
We've been sleeping for ages but never once did we dream about this
That the bitter taste of disillusion is just enough to keep us underneath the surface
Now i can't change my past, but who the fuck are you to predict my future
That the shadows we cast define our soul purpose
Therefor our wings must be broken
It's in our hands and we need everyone's attention,
that hand in hand we will walk these streets with more pride and courage than ever before

It's in our hands
In hand we will walk these streets with more
pride and courage than ever before

On the brightest path I recall your name
Yet the shadows settles in for the very first time
Hands are shaking cold
Heartbeats racing fast
But tonight it's heart and soul versus,
Versus, versus none!
Days like these won't last forever

Let's go!

    General CommentThis song is great, love it.
    Here is my theory;

    "We need everyone's attention!
    There are words that must be said"
    -pretty much speaks for itself..

    "We will never bite our tongues again,
    because everything they hold is the greatest lie"
    -we will never fail to speak out again.. "they" couldt be politicians or other "elite" in the system.

    "But no one of us sleeps tonight
    We are the ones who must make a stand"
    -time for revolution, we muste change things.

    "We need everyone to listen up!
    To the frailty words that we say!
    Bring back our fucking strength - pick up yourself
    In a world filled with hate -
    We are the hope!
    We are the cure!"
    -Again it seems like its about some kind of revolution.


    "We've been sleeping for ages but never once did we dream about this
    That the bitter taste of disillusion is just enough to keep us underneath the surface"
    -To be "sleeping" is usualy used by those who often are called conspiracy teoretics as a word for they who havent woke up yet and still belives in capitalism and so on.
    "Under the surface" is another expession for "not active" or "staying in the system".

    "The business of our living"
    -We will not stand for this society where people make money on us and we want freedom.. kind of.

    "But tonight it's heart and soul versus,
    Versus, versus none!
    Days like these won't last forever

    Let's go! "
    -yeah, again the revolution, we will change this and so on.

    This was my guesses, maby its all wrong, but I hope i'm right because the world needs to wake up.
