"I Am the Void" as written by Daniel Antonsson, Mikael Bengt Stanne, Martin Brandstrom, Anders Jivarp, Niklas Bo Sundin and Martin Henriksson....
Drink this water again
That runs my withered memory
When your name is lost
But never forget yourself

This future, this dream
That carries you faith further on
These waters know you
It calls you by your one true name

Have you ever noticed the spaces in between
When life is a recession
We are going to kneel again

I am the call, I speak inside of you
I am the void that haunts you
I am the howl that calls you out
I am the void, I am the void

Rest your weary heads
Until the underworld
Has left its silent whispers
Again in your waking dreams

In time without pause
Of what this long son has come to beat
of the fallen
its going to rain in your blood

The machinery of chaos
Out comes the light in you
Chained to the grinding wheel
The forces unseen

I am the call, I speak inside of you
I am the void that haunts you
I am the howl that calls you out
I am the void, I am the void
I am the void

You have always been between another set of walls
Outside of which,
The world is watching down on you

In side a silent speaks
Kept close to the end
This alibi never reaching out, never give in

I am the call, I speak inside of you
I am the void that haunts you
I am the howl that calls you out
I am the void, I am the void

    Song MeaningMikael Stanne:

    "About the void that awaits us after we die. This force pulls us towards itself, although we fight and try to go back. Everybody feels numb with horror, because we know that infinite darkness awaits us."
