"Drop Dead Cynical " as written by Olof Nils Moerck, Elise Hanna Isabell Maj Ryd and Joacim Lundberg....
I need attention, feed my addiction
I want the action, the satisfaction
You have to feed me worse that I inquire
So my discord someday takes me higher

I hope to thrill you that expectations rise
I want to bring you so that you can compromise
I'm coming at you like a killer now
So it's the truth you are drop dead cynical

Welcome to the new world
Open up the gates of paradise
So let's get cynical
Run into a new maze
Open up your minds
And soon we'll all
Be drop dead cynical
Be drop dead cynical

It's your illusions, fatal contradiction
I need the action premonition
I like to thrill you, I am what inspires
Let you explode in a cosmic fire

Your death counts as a light that feels right
To die so sadly as the red behind the sun
You make it hard to justify now
Say what you want you are drop dead cynical

Welcome to the new world
Open up the gates of paradise
So let's get cynical
Run into a new maze
Open up your minds
And soon we'll all
Be drop dead cynical
Be drop dead cynical
Be drop dead cynical

I hope to thrill you that expectations rise
I want to bring you so that you can compromise
I'm coming at you like a killer now
So it's the truth you are drop dead cynical

Welcome to the new world
Open up the gates of paradise
So let's get cynical
Run into a new maze
Open up your minds
And soon we'll all
Be drop dead cynical

    General CommentWhat does this mean? Sounds to me about sexual pleasure but what does being cynical have to do with it??

    General CommentI think their saying to open up your mind to its full potential and look around you and not to be close minded and you can be happy by knowing what's around you and what your possiblys are . Hope that makes sense to you

    Song MeaningThis has been bugging me since the song came out. I love it, but "cynical" just doesn't make any sense at all. I figure either they were stuck for a word that worked, poetically and lyrically, and finally just stuck "cynical" in there, or it was a language issue.

    They're Swedish, and often foreign songwriters write lyrics in their native language and translate them to english. Once in a while they'll get a clinker where a word is a synonym in some uses, but not the one in the context of the song.

    So I keep trying to figure out what word they might have mistranslated to end up with "Cynical" - maybe something like "cautious" or "discerning"? Being less gullible and not as trusting?
