"The Foreboding Sense of Impending Happiness" as written by and Ville Hermanni Valo....
By your heart strings I'm hanging from a dream,
Gently swinging in the warm autumn breeze.

Come look at the scars, smother a heart, opening up.
Look at the scars, smother a heart, opening up, no more.

Tip toeing along a strand of your hair suspended between,
These thoughts and actions miles above reality.

Come look at the scars, smother a heart, opening up.
Look at the scars, smother a heart, opening up.

Come look at the scars, smother a heart, opening up.
Look at the scars, smother a heart, opening up.

Look at the scars, smother a heart, opening up.
Look at the scars, smother a heart, opening up.

Look at the scars, smother a heart, opening up.
Look at the scars, smother a heart, opening up.

Opening up, opening up, opening up, opening up.
Look at the scars, you open me up, open me up.
Smother a heart, opening up, opening up.
Look at the scars, you open me up, opening up, open me up

    General CommentI believe the lyric is actually "Come Look at the Scars, Smother our hearts, opening up no more...."
    at least that's what Ville says it is :)
    Great song though. Definitely one of my faves off of "Screamworks" :)
    I think it's a generally uplifting song, surrealistic in nature, but nevertheless about making small romantic gestures count in a time where most people believe Chivalry is dead. At least that's what I get from it.

    General CommentThe title pretty much says it all. It's about being closed.. afraid to love and trust again. Look at the scars, smother a heart, opening up (no more) Like when you're really falling for someone, and it's new, and it feels so good. You just want to hold on to this feeling. But you're afraid it's all a dream, and you'll wake up alone. I really love this song. It's definately one of my favorites from the new album.
