"The Windswept Mercy" as written by Bjoern Ove Ingemar Strid, Dirk Verbeuren, Ola Flink, Sven Morten Ragnar Karlsson, Sylvain Emmanuel Coudret and David Andersson....
Out we go, we've been ruthless
The tears of time, makes it endless
Give me another life
That will grant me with its solace

Watch it burn

The need for light
That would guide us
Has gone away
While we progressed
Tell me now, does it die
When we turn our heads
And walk away

Walk away

The winds swept all of our mercy
It won't never ever come back
Now the pain we feel is worthy
Watch us carry the final collapse
The final collapse

What can we do?
Resurrect the ashes?
Can we stick it through?
And forgive ourselves?
Our minds are covered with dust
Our needs are filthy
Our hands are tied but we still see
That we are guilty
So deliver us from broken dreams
Return us from this mental siege
Throw us back in the cradle of time
And heal our desperate ways...

The winds swept all of our mercy
It won't never ever come back
Now the pain we feel is worthy
Watch us carry the final collapse
The final collapse

Out we go, out we go

    General CommentI think this has a simple interpretation, and it has to do with the erosion of religion and the rise of self-guidance/enlightenment without needing to look up to a higher being to guide us. However without faith we begin to realize it's true value (to fill the void of desperation and awareness of our inevitable end within us).

    But when faith is no more, does that mean it ceases to exist when we turn our backs on our those past ideas? Now that we are able to think for ourselves, the stories of religion that teach us mercy, kindness, and forgiveness will fade. Without these concepts in our mind, we are able to feel the pain and consequences of our flawed nature. However, "as we progressed", we are able to carry this burden into the final collapse or end of humanity with self-awareness/serenity. The final part of the song speaks of the inevitability of our end, again acknowledging our flawed human characteristics when speaking about our dirty minds and filthy needs. The last few lines show the true value of our past beliefs as we see the regret of straying from faith and a desire to be taken back to the time when we were guided by a higher power, a time when we were able to overlook the flaws of humanity.
