Sun has lost
Mountains fell
What took away our anchor
Snow in the old sky
Escape is a long dead end

We need to rise higher

Temples burn
Fires underneath
What controls our anger
Moon coming in
Sun has lost
Did you know
Mountains fell

Letting one second go on
To go over a lifetime
We were such good friends
Will you find me where I am now

    My InterpretationIn short, it sounds like him and an important friend had a rough patch. They didn't communicate for a while, he felt lost and he felt like he should say something to repair the damage done, lest it be too late to mend their friendship and they drift beyond each others' reach. It sort of suggests that without that friend their lives would be very different than if they were together, by saying the very last phrase. It's like a hopeless recognition of the avoidable failure.

    My InterpretationI believe this song (one of my favorites of all time by Katatonia) is about the devastation that follows a terrorist attack (Sun has lost
    Mountains fell, What took away our anchor, Escape is a long dead end). It deals with the aftermath, the suffering & guilt that burdens the survivors (their is always survivors guilt), also estranged friendships (Will you find me where I am now) and those who lose their friends completely in the attack. It addresses that we need to come together as a whole when acts of violence like this happen, we're much stronger together then divided (We need to rise higher) while also addressing the anger the victims families, friends and the world in general feels (What controls our anger) towards the terrorists. With so many terrorist attacks lately, its so sad but 911 of course is the first one I think of. Lastly, it recommends we cherish every second we're alive cause you never know when we could lose our own life or someone close to us, perhaps a family member, or a friendship we neglected to cultivate properly (Letting one second go on, To go over a lifetime) that's a warning to heed that we could regret that mistake for a lifetime so remember to value those who we hold nearest and dearest, don't take it for granted, cause you never know when your time with them could be up.
