"Mannequin" as written by and Stian Andre/svensson Hinderson....
There's nothing left inside your world, it's dying
Just close your eyes, eternity is just another game
You're just another clone, so shed your skin now
Nothing lasts forever, just let it slip away

It doesn't have to be forever
It doesn't have to be forever

You're just another faithless mannequin
You're just another fallen star
You're just to blind to see, you hate what you can never be
And now you're hollow, just like me

There's nothing left inside your world
You're just an empty shell of lifeless skin and bone
You're just another drone, a synthetic messiah
Nothing lasts forever, just let it slip away

It doesn't have to be forever
It doesn't have to be forever

You don't want to be human, anymore than me
You're just another faithless mannequin
You're just another fallen star
You're just to blind to see, you hate what you can never be
And now you're hollow, just like me

    General CommentSong seems to deal with the question of eternal life. It seems this song questions those who feel sadness but revert to religion. The song reconciles these similar feelings: "You don't want to be human... Anymore than me." [sic]. The song is actually not that harsh, I would say, since it attempts to acknowledge that even some brilliant people revert to religion in times of crisis.
