"Nostrum" as written by and Maarten Hagstroem Tomas Haake....
Jealous vengeful fabrication
Halo-crowned invention
Sacred universal lie
Artificial divine
Great archaic obsoletum
A prevarication
Deceitfully contrived

Synthesized fictitious
Dreamed up by remote prototypes
Opiate for the yearning mass
Administered applied
Three letter word for monster
Empty promises of healing
Profit aptly buried in the lies
An industry rapt with avarice
Medicating blind
Its acolytes

Useless panacea
Imaginary cure-all
To you we cry and supplicate
Into your hell we fall
Blind belief in their eyes
Forever atoning, credulously waiting
Gazing to the skies

    Song Meaning“It's one of those tracks that comes from drums and then you add riffs. Nostrum is another word for a placebo, a drug that has no actual effect, and that ties into religion, and how it is still the opiate for the masses. The hypnosis of these people, which is so far in the opposite direction of what normal, modern thinking people feel.”
    - Tomas Haake
