Rooted within the pitch-black heart
Entrenched behind weary eyes
In the faraway song the cold sea sung
In the calm whisper of winds afar
It lies, calls and awaits deep in the primeval dark
Embodiment of despair that never leaves or severs the ties

    General CommentWhat Insomnium wrote in their booklet :
    Having an intro song has become a kind of trademark of ours. It sets the mood for the album nicely and usually works well live. This time I tried to come up with something different by concentrating in rhythmic side of things. The melody line are but folky but blend in nicely and lose their characteristics when mixed with hypnotic rhythm pattern giving way something fresh and interesting. I also wanted things to happen faster this time; there's not too much of building up the the theme. Drummer gets the early spotlight and other members follow shortly. Lyrically the song is all about dark sky , black clouds, relentless rain and breaking of the waves : call of the sea from the fathomless dark
