"Like Sand" as written by and Bjorn Gelotte Anders Friden....
I believe that the whole wild world is against me
I, I, I believe that the whole wild world is afraid of me

How did I end up here
Half alive and still full of fears
If I'm honest I think you'll see
I'm scared to share what's calling for me
You say, make the most of your time
Hard to work when it's not on your side
What can't kill you makes you stronger
So I heard but I'm going under

I will try, I will try
I want the whole world, the whole world, the whole world in my hands
But it's just slipping through like sand (I want the whole world)

I try hard to be like you
You're my Queen but I break in two
I think I can overcome all the mistakes that I've done
You say, make the most of your time
Hard to work when it's not on your side
What can't kill you makes you stronger
So you say but I'm going under

I will try, I will try
I want the whole world, the whole world, the whole world in my hands
But it's just slipping through like sand
I want the whole world, the whole world, the whole world in my hands
But it's just slipping through like sand

I believe that the whole wild world is afraid of me

I want the whole world, the whole world, the whole world in my hands
But it's just slipping through like sand
I want the whole world, the whole world, the whole world in my hands
But it's just slipping through like sand

    My InterpretationI think this song is about someone who has made many mistakes in their life but has pushed through (What can't kill you makes you stronger). He wants to be like the person in his life he most loves or idolizes (my queen) but he can't and he is frustrated, he wants the whole world (he wants to have it all) but it all goes slipping through his hands. On top of all that, he believes he such a scarred and flawed individual he believes now that the whole world is afraid of him.
