"New Year's Eve" as written by and Daniel Gildenloew Pain Of Salvation....
[Music: D.Gildenlow]

'Only the tame birds have a longing. The wild ones fly.'

So once again
Another New Year's Eve will ease our pain
Faith for the few
And rites that will make us so brave
So new
We laugh and we cheer for a Happy New Year

Candles burn down
And in the darkness future comes around
We smile - all aware
But never speaking of the masks we wear

Turning mirrors upside down
Won't make dust fall off the ground
Hiding wounds won't ease the pain
Sleep won't make you whole again

Change the inside!
...drink the rain...

Dressing our words
Seeing the dirt and flaws inside us hurts
One final glass
A sour taste from our promises
I bid farewell and crawl out of my shell

I'm awake!
I see the mistakes I make
Hiding wounds won't ease the pain
Sleep won't make you whole again
Change the inside...

Today I found a seed of sorrow
The harvest leaves a soil of shame
Now I undress and face tomorrow
And brave I walk to meet the blame

I'll search my home outside these borders
I'll run to meet up with the past
A Resolution for the New Life
This time I know it's gonna last

And I will...
Change the inside
Drink the rain
Open my wounds to heal the pain

Learn the work of The Machine...

[II: Spirit of Man]

    General CommentI think this song is about humanity ignoring the problems in the world, pretending it's not happening or they're not to blame. The person taking us on the journey through this album makes a new year's resolution to end his part in the wrong doing, and learn the result of mankind's acts (war, pollution, etc.).

    General CommentCould these lyrics be rather about overcoming alcoholism?
