My continued existence is worse than death
Yet I still live on
Trying to force apathy upon myself
To replace my depression with numbness

I tell myself that it’s worked
That I don’t feel anything anymore
But deep down, I know that I’ll never
Be anything resembling “positive”
Life is my coffin
And it’s time to shut the lid

One final action
And this will all end

I can't fight the inevitable
So I embrace it

Embrace suicide
I want to die alone and cold,
And hating myself for every moment of hope that I ever had

    General CommentThe meaning to this song is pretty simple- I see this lp as a concept album, focusing on one's descent into negativity and self-destruction caused by long periods of isolation (but that's obvious!). The whole album contemplates the action of suicide- whether it's really worth it or not, and in this song, the narrator finally reaches a conclusion with one of the best metaphors I've ever heard "Life is my coffin and it's time to shut the lid." So powerful, best black metal vocals I've ever heard accompanied by repetitive music (but never boring) that accurately represents the repetition that goes in a suicidal person's head.
