"Act of Desperation" as written by and Joacim/m�rck Lundberg....
A bitter revelation
Is a product of ambition
No matter what you say
I'm a stranger to submission

But what I see before me
Is a element of passion
In my recognition
Is the fallout of compassion

Taken life for granted
Never struggle just to find
Illusions being planted
Deep inside of my mind

It's an invitation
To the corner of my mind
Act of desperation
To see what I can find
Here's our destination
So come on step inside
Take my hand and you will
Discover what I hide

Deciphering enigmas
Is a part of who you are
Identify the secrets of the eagle and the compass star

So let it be proclaimed that I'm a slave to revelation
Show me your compassion
Be a part of our creation

One dark obsession
Irreversible denials
I read about one's guidance
Once together, never

It's an invitation
To the corner of my mind
Act of desperation
To see what I can find
Here's our destination
So come on step inside
Take my hand and you will

It's an invitation
To the corner of my mind
Act of desperation
To see what I can find
Here's our destination
So come on step inside
Take my hand and you will
Discover what I hide

    Song MeaningA quick search on "eagle and the compass star" turned up Wikipedia's blurb on the CIA logo. Not sure if that has anything to do with anything.

    General CommentI bet it's about a spy (probably from the CIA, per my other comment) seducing her target because she's run out of other options (an "act of desperation / to see what I can find") and falling in love with him.
