"Night Sight" as written by Ivar S. Peersen, Kjetil Grutle, Herbrand Larsen and Iver Sandoy....
I can see through the veil
Seeing all I need see
Nothing is hidden here
Deep into the woods

Casting
Letters that speak of...
All
Is all
Is naught

No-one but me
Knows of this place
Sanctuary
Where I construct

Dream while there is no strife
Anguish pulls no weight
One can see and the other is blind
Through the same pair of eyes

We have lost sight
Of the night-side of the self
Hunted by the fear
Of reunion
Night-sight is bliss
For he who dares look into
A world where you embrace the opposite
Where you are whole

There is no lasting joy
In numbness and dogma
Too much is too little in knowledge
Driven by mystery

We have lost sight
Of the night-side of the self
Hunted by the fear
Of reunion
Night-sight is bliss
For he who dares look into
A world where you embrace the opposite
Where you are whole

    My InterpretationTo me this is about not fearing the unknown (that is throughout history humanity has feared the "dark" because we can't see clearly). Therefore by embracing our fears we can conquer them (and perhaps see clearly). I guess it comes down to the old SAS saying "Who dares, wins!"

    I personally think the harsh vocals on this track don't work well. The lyrics are quite poetic and deep, and I feel that the clean vocals definitely portray the emotion and theme of the lyrics a lot better than the growls. Each to their own though.
