"Gateways" as written by Stian Thoresen, Sven Kopperud and Tom Andersen....
The core principle of freedom
Is the only notion to obey
The formula of evolution and sin
Leading the way

The rebirth is near completion
As we slowly awaken from slumber
As we slowly awaken from slumber

The malpractice of the spirit ends
Gateways!
When the gift is once again attained
Gateways!
No rules or restraints are longer valid
Gateways!
When the ancient future is reclaimed
Gateways!

No rules or restraints are longer valid
Gateways!
When the ancient future is reclaimed
Gateways!

It's all there for the eye that can see
The blind ones will always suffer in secrecy
For it is the omen
Of what lies submerged
Untouched within us

The core principle of freedom
Is the only notion to obey
The formulae of evolution and sin
Leading the way

The rebirth is near completion
As we slowly awaken from slumber
To receive the light that shines in darkness
The light that shines forevermore
Forevermore!

Be the broken or the breaker
Be the giver or the undertaker
Unlatch and open the doors
Be the healer or the faker
The keys are in your hands
Realize you are your own sole creator
Of your own masterplan

Be the broken or the breaker
Be the giver or the undertaker
Unlatch and open the doors
Be the healer or the faker
The keys are in your hands
Realize you are your own sole creator
Of your own masterplan!

    General CommentFarbeyond, I only did the last verse. I think your lyrics sound mostly right, except for "Realize you are the source of all creation"....she's pretty clear in that part and says "Realize you are your own sole creator". She doesn't say "the source" at all. She says 'sole' like "so-ohl" in two parts like that. But great job on the rest of the song.

    General Comment@FarBeyond: I have the CD booklet at home, and it's actually in front of me right this minute, and I'm afraid your lyrics do not correspond with what's written in my booklet.

    Song MeaningI agree with the line "Realize you are your own sole creator" and not with "the source of all creation" or whatever crap that was. The whole song is based on the belief of Egotheism, which is the deification of oneself and or the belief that all life is formed from a collective energy (a "God" if you will). Instead of a divine being creating each life, that particular life chose to break away from the energy thus "creating" itself and by lesser terms making itself it's own creator and "God". As the song also mentions Egotheism also means that having also created yourself willingly, you have predetermined your life and existence before you were "born" (this is what is commonly referred to as Destiny). Hope this helps enlighten those curious about the meanings of this song. But all in all a very good song.

    General Commenthahaha, why would someone submit only the last verse? Desperate to be the first to post lyrics or something? Pretty fucking retarded.

    General CommentThese lyrics are wrong.

    Here:


    The cruel origins of freedom
    Have longed the notion to die
    This door will allow evolution of sins
    Bringing new way
    The rebirth is the year of completion
    As we slowly awaken from slumber
    As we slowly awaken from slumber

    The men break this and the spirit ends
    Can't arise
    While the gift is hard to get acclaimed
    Can't arise
    No rules are restraints on our new planet
    Can't arise
    While the ancient future is reclaimed
    Can't arise
    No rules are restraints on our new planet
    Can't arise
    While the ancient future is reclaimed
    Can't arise

    Its all there for the eyes that can see
    The blind ones will always suffer in secrecy
    Praise the omen oh what lives have (perished/purged)
    And have been true to us

    The cruel origins of freedom
    Have longed the notion to die
    This door will allow evolution of sins
    Bringing new way
    The rebirth is the year of completion
    As we slowly awaken from slumber
    Till we see the light that shines in darkness
    The light that shines forever more
    Forever more

    Be the broken or the breaker
    Be the giver or the undertaker
    Unlock and open the door
    Be the healer or the breaker
    The keys are in your hands
    Realize you are the source of all creation
    Of your own master plan
    Be the broken or the breaker
    Be the giver or the undertaker
    Unlock and open the door
    Be the healer or the breaker
    The keys are in your hands
    Realize you are the source of all creation
    Of your own master plan
