"The Deeper Cut" as written by and Daniel Gildenl�w....
All my life I have been afraid
All my life scared to lose my way
All my life lead me to today
The day when I must learn the hardest way
Every step leading to this day
The day I learn to lose and fail
A deeper cut into the flesh of life
A sharper kind of knife
A deeper cut into the throat of grey
Come take me far away
Come take me far away
Lead me astray

The deepest cut will never really mend
The deepest cut might kill you in the end
The deepest cut is playing not to win
It's what you hear in every word I sing
It's beauty in the ugliest of things
It's birds that fly with broken wings
A deeper cut into the flesh of life
A sharper kind of knife
A deeper cut into the throat of grey
Come colors lead the way
Come colors lead the way
Into the wild
Into the wild...

Today I go beyond control
Beyond all purpose aim or goal
To win my soul
'Cause today I learn to lose my way
To fall and fail
I choose the wilderness today
Into the wild...

    My InterpretationCathartic. Very much explains why the band is called Pain of Salvation. That time you've been dreading and trying to avoid, when it all gets so bad it can't get any worse. And then it's all uphill from there once you've survived :)

    Been there, survived, learned, now loving life <3
