"At The Point Of Ignition" as written by Daniel Antonsson, Mikael Bengt Stanne, Martin Brandstrom, Anders Jivarp, Niklas Bo Sundin and Martin Henriksson....
Do not hide your sorrow,
Or banish it from sight
Take it out to burn,
Turn the pain against it

In a day, that holds no other
What are we? The fuel or the flame?
In a life, that hides behind you
What are you? The fuel or the flame?

In the proud momentum,
thrust the hand from the start
Our fragile fate falls apart

I hear you in my echo, I refuse to leave it behind
I see you in my shadow, waiting inside

What if we don't question the meaning of it all
The answer in our system
Bound to kill the spark

The moments so illusive
One dream never ends
Scars the dying moment that burns another dream

In a day, that holds no other
What are we? The fuel or the flame?
In the life, that hides behind you
What are you?

The shine of trembling stars,
Out in the distant
Curse this lack of site,
Into darkness without end

In a day, that holds no other
What are we? The fuel or the flame?
In a life, that hides behind you
what are you? The fuel or the flame?

In a day, that holds no other
What are we?
In a life, that hides behind you
What are you? What are you?

    Song MeaningMikael Stanne:

    "It poses the question: who are you? The one that follows or the one that leads? Are you willing to create something new or you prefer to use something ready? Whether you burn and pursue your aim at any cost or slowly move in an indefinite direction?"
