"Sounds of a Playground Fading" as written by Bjorn Gelotte and Anders Friden....
You can find all you need
The message is in the silence
Whisper words to calm your mind
Reach inside another playing come-around
It answers

We are ghosts of the concrete world
Genetic codes of a dying breed
Will I be left behind
Sounds of a playground fading

Staring into bright lights
I am what I've done
It is useless to hide
An empty chamber
Guess I was part of a plan

We are ghosts of the concrete world
Genetic codes of a dying breed
Will I be left behind
Sounds of a playground fading

We're running out of time
Can't seem to recognize
What put us here in the first place
Counting down the days, beginning of the end

We are ghosts of the concrete world
Genetic codes of a dying breed
Will I be left behind
Sounds of a playground fading

    My Interpretationi think that anders got the idea to this song from the futuristic movie " children of men " its aboiut the end of world (not in an nucclear disaster ) but to take it short : the women cant no longer get pregnant so the human race is slowly dying (...." genetic codes of a dying breed " ) even one of actors says: "sound like a playground fading" = the playground are empty.

    General CommentI would like to make a change to the first verse.

    You can find all you need
    The message is in the silence
    Whisper words to calm your mind
    Reach inside, numb the pain
    Come around with answers

    General CommentYou're right, I also changed some other minor things. Should be 100% now. :)

    Lyric Correctioni couldnt find official lyrics from the band, but i think the chorus goes:

    We are ghosts of the concrete world
    Genetic (clones?) of a dying breed
    Will i be left behind
    Sounds of a playground fading

    im not completely sure though. . .

    General CommentIt seems like he's talking about the world (or maybe the musical world) changing with technology and he is afraid of being left behind by the evolving world around him. Sounds of a playground fading could mean that kids are changing. instead of playgrounds, they sit inside all day. The plan is a path to our own destruction. We build the technology and then it replaces us.
