The pledge
I've forgotten this time
I am so uncertain
That my heart will go on
My beloved one
If you where here you'd find
That I'm not feeling well
But that will have to go on

And though summer unwinds now
I have no reason to follow
I have only you
My sun is pale
My heart's old

Why
So quiet this new night
There's a white cloud
Under my eyelid
My beloved one
There is swirling dark
Shrouding my freedom

Cold is the undertone
Hold my hand
I'm in the waiting line
Mute I stand
Barren ground

    General CommentWhere are all the comments on Katatonia songs? I know they're tough to decipher, but the more opinions the better!

    Anyhow, this one is pretty straight forward I think. The person in the song is on their deathbed talking to a beloved one who has already passed on. I think the first four lines describe the person questioning whether or not the afterlife exists, saying he has forgotten the pledge (of his religion) and is uncertain if his heart will go on.

    Ok time for someone to figure out Liberation, GO!

    My InterpretationHello, this song is one of my favouritest, because it has much personal to me.

    In my opinion, this song is about man, who was departed from his normal life, from his beloved, far away. And his only hope is to return someday to his only love, to his former life, to all the things he was departed from. Probably it will never happen again, but he still have to go on.


    Who is in the same situation, must understand how hard it is..
