Son of man
You're on your own
The coming Winter
You'll face alone

The heart that you cherished so
The hand that you tried to hold
Belong to a stranger
But a vision you crafted

Alone, alone you came into this world
Came into being
Alone, alone you are still when you're leaving
When you're waning

Hounds of Winter
Bay at the moors
Demons of loneliness
Bide at your door now

Not one heart that would stay true
Not one soul that bleeds for you
They'll turn away
One dreary day

Alone, alone you came into this world
Came into being
Alone, alone you are still when you're leaving
When you're waning

Alone, alone you came into this world
Came into being
Alone, alone you are still when you're leaving
When you're waning

Alone you're in this world
In the middle of it all
If you keep holding on
It will hurt even more

Only one who stays
Only one who waits
Your shadow by your side
Only friend in life

    General CommentPezable I think you got it right. I will adhere here the fact of betrayal coming from that one person you love and it's supposed to stay true and be by your side in good and bad moments, that's what I would call true love. But the singer in the song gets backstabbed by the one he trusted most and realizes how alone he is in the world and how cold it is. For me it's a positive song though, basically it says you still have yourself and it's the only thing you need to live and go on, maybe with melancholy and despondency, but still going on. I just have to say Insomnium is my favourite band and helped me get through really bad times in my life, this band has something special for sure...

    General CommentThe only person you can truly know, understand, and trust is yourself. We come into this world alone and we exit alone. In the time we are here we attempt to be a part of something and hide the fact that we are alone. Humans have this need to be a part of something, but naturally we are lonely.
