"The Puzzle" as written by Bjorn Gelotte and Anders Friden....
Let us try to think, try to paint the picture.

Living on, have to feel this way.

(Looking for something to believe in)

Looking for something to believe in,
I think I've done my time. (My time)

One by one the pieces fall,
Tell me what it is to believe.

You can tell, changed by their faces.
There are always signs!
I am just still to the puzzle,
Grab a piece of light!

Give me tending, I can't handle everything,
You'll never understand me. (Light)

And I don't care what you think, (Light)
Or maybe I do!

(One by one the pieces fall)
One by one the pieces fall!
Tell me what it feels to believe!

You can tell, changed by their faces.
There are always signs!
I am just still to the puzzle,
Grab a piece of light!

Grab a piece of light!(Light)

You can tell, changed by their faces.
There are always signs!
I am just still to the puzzle,
Grab a piece of light!

You can tell, changed by their faces.
There are always signs!
I am just still to the puzzle,
Grab a piece of light! (Light)

    General CommentI have the booklet here, and the lyrics go like this:

    And I tried to think, tried to paint the picture
    I lived it all, wouldn't have to feel this way
    Looking for something to believe in, I think I've done my time
    One by one the pieces fall, tell me what it is to believe

    You can tell days by their faces
    There are always signs
    Answers to the puzzle
    Grab a piece of the light

    Keep pretending I can handle everything
    You'll never understand me
    And I don't care what you think
    Or maybe I do?

    I think the song is about depression or some such. The chorus seems to be the ultimate reinforcement of this, essentially, you can always tell what they've seen through their face, as there are always signs. Answers to the puzzle and grabbing the piece of light probably have something to do with some sort of solution.

    General CommentSuch a good song!! Can anyone comment or correct the chorus?

    It's either:
    You can tell..changed by their faces...
    or
    You can tell...days by their faces
    or
    You can tell..change by their faces

    Thanks :)

    Lyric CorrectionAccording to the booklet the chorus would be:

    "You can tell days by their faces,
    There are always signs,
    Answers to the puzzle,
    Grab a piece of the light"

    And a small addendum :) The first verse starts off as "And I tried to think, tried to paint the picture"

    And holy mother of Moses I love the outro

    General CommentIt feels like they are talking about artists in general that have lost their inspiration for their work. They try to find the motivation to continue, all the while pretending not to care what their peers think, but they actually do.
