"The Parting" as written by Jonas Petter Renkse, Anders Nystrom and Per Eriksson....
In the weak light
I saw you becoming the lie
Taking it all for granted
Like freedom
It's something you'll never have

Forget what's said
And hear me sing to you
How I've set out to kill my soul
The nightward ways
The labor it brings
The verdict that I came for
Migration's song

Patterns of death overwhelms
Fixation rise
I came along the way
And came to a conclusion
The indifferent sky
Is made of lead and so beautiful
Submission
Come you will

The parting
End origin
Fade into earth

Times ablaze
Under the flags we chose
Denied my step and froze my heart
Yet I stare
With nothing left to do
The verdict that I came for
Migration's song

Take your well deserved step
Into darkness
I'll become your eyes
You have no other
We have to walk along this wire
Trust the one that never trusted you

    General CommentIt's about the change and evolution of a relationship in which the person who was so deeply invested realizes they must move on and part from this other person but they had been do deeply rooted into the whole experience that it's so difficult (How I've set out to kill my soul)
    to commit to end it but they know it's for the best. Infact they are realizing it'd be easier to stay in the relationship as damaging as it is, then to end it but they know it's their only logical choice.

    Take your well deserved step
    Into darkness
    I'll become your eyes
    You have no other
    We have to walk along this wire
    Trust the one that never trusted you

    This is the him finally coming to grasps with it being completely over and telling that person that although it's over, he'll continue to be with them in some way or another, he'll never completely abandon them. Even though trust was never established fully, they can trust that that person will never totally abandon them.
