"A Closer End" as written by Mikael Bengt Stanne, Martin Brandstrom, Mikael Niklasson, Anders Jivarp, Niklas Bo Sundin and Martin Henriksson....
As in the life of rain
You're only alive when you're falling
The coldest chill
In the emptiness of reason

You brought it upon yourself
It's slow but final
With nothing to gain
You brought it upon yourself
It's slow but final
It begins today

So light up the days
With the darkest of waking dreams
For endless puzzles
To reflect our aim

You brought it upon yourself
It's slow but final
With nothing to gain
You brought it upon yourself
It's slow but final
It starts today

It seems you've passed the mark
Of indescribable dark
I fear you've drowned
In hope of what you think will come

Extracted from the sharpest of moments
Built to greet you when the time will come
Empty spaces on foundations of denial
Your structure is dust

As in the death of dream
Awakenings will leave you stranded
Where no one is listening
Where no one is around

You brought it upon yourself
It's slow but final
With nothing to gain
You brought it upon yourself
It's slow but final
It begins today

    Lyric CorrectionAs in the life of rain
    you're only alive when you're falling
    the coldest chill
    in the emptiness of reason

    You brought it upon yourself
    it's slow but final
    with nothing to gain
    you brought it upon yourself
    it's slow but final
    it begins today

    Light up the days
    with the darkest of waking dreams
    for endless puzzles
    to reflect our aim

    You brought it upon yourself
    it's slow but final
    with nothing to gain
    You brought it upon yourself
    it's slow but final
    it starts today

    It seems you've passed the mark
    of indescribable dark
    I fear you've drowned
    in hope of what you think will come

    Extracted from the sharpest of moments
    Built to greet you when the time will come
    Empty spaces on foundations of denial
    Your structure is dust

    As in the death of dream
    awakenings will leave you stranded
    where no one is listening
    where no one is around
