"Long Live The Misanthrope" as written by Bjoern Ove Ingemar Strid, Dirk Verbeuren, Ola Flink, Sven Morten Ragnar Karlsson, Sylvain Emmanuel Coudret and David Andersson....
Where's the notion, that I would be left out?
I wish you'd take me away with you
I know I cursed you, I know I had no doubt
That all of you were the thorns of life

Misanthropic tendencies
I was the one who could never believe
You broke my trust, all was lost
You're all the same to me
I made peace, with solitude
A farcical interlude
The wrath, made me
A lonely soul

The misanthrope lives on,
Through the burning sun
A champion for the ages(ages)
The hatred lives on,
The world goes numb
A provocateur of life

You won't affect me, I'm in control
When I take the role of the misanthrope

A well of emotion, taking you back
I won't be saved 'cause it never, ever lasts
Leave me alone, give me no words to keep
No familiarity
And I won't be deceived

Where's the notion, that I would be left out?
I wish you'd take me away with you
I know I cursed you, I know I had no doubt
That all of you were the voice of life

Misanthropic tendencies
I was the one who could never believe
You broke my trust, all was lost
You're all the same to me
I made peace, with solitude
A fascicle interlude
The wrath, made me
A lonely soul

The misanthrope lives on,
Through the burning sun
A champion for the ages(ages)
The hatred lives on,
The world goes numb
A provocateur of life

You won't affect me, I'm in control
When I take the role of the misanthrope
You won't affect me, I'm in control
When I take the role of the misanthrope

A well of emotion, taking you back
I won't be saved 'cause it never, ever lasts
Leave me alone, give me no words to keep
No familiarity
And I won't be deceived

A well of emotion, taking you back
I won't be saved 'cause it never, ever lasts
A well of emotion, taking you back
I won't be saved 'cause it never, ever lasts
Leave me alone, give me no words to keep
No familiarity
And I won't be deceived

    My InterpretationMy favorite song on this album, The Living Infinite. I think the lyrics are about someone who is sick of being the outcast cause of how they are percieved by the world. Someone who has gradually experienced a metamorphosis into this very hateful dark being do to the inability for others to embrace them as they are. This person also struggles with a relationship with someone as the song eludes to, not sure if it's specifically referencing an relationship with an indiviual like a love interest or a special friend of group of friends but the lyrics indicate that they feel this person has refused to be around them anymore and they are saying they would like them to reconsider that in the lyrics : Where's the notion, that I would be left out?
    I wish you'd take me away with you
    I know I cursed you, I know I had no doubt
    That all of you were the thorns of life
    *They feel that they have been outcasted unjustifiably and are angry and believe they are most certainly entitled to a second chance. Their soul turns very dark cause of the stress of how they are perceived and treated by others and it seems they indeed have become outwardly violent taking out their disdain on others and feeling nothing but hate as a reaction to how they have been treated throughout their life so far.
