"Within" as written by Anders Martin Bjorler, Jonas Fredrik Bjorler, Adrian Erlandsson, Tomas Lindberg and Alf Svensson....
Feel the vibrating words of power
Magic the portral, language the key
As my journey within begins

Once again the gates stand open before me
Time has come for me to climb the tree of life
And sail the seas I know so well

I search the winding masses of my mind
And travel through thoughts left behind
As the waves they carry my ship into the air
A way out, but not back, I must find

I can't go on living in this dead world
Crawling through this life I hate
I won't be thrown to the wolves again
I escape through magic as darkness it falls

But now the danger lurks within
Through my mind and beyond
My task is insane
And I don't know how my body will respond
But my ship is a strong on
It has carried me through storms worse than this

I can't go on living in this dead world
Crawling through the life I hate

I hear music and it guides me
On my quest to infinity
A harbor appears within the mist
It's lighthouse, a sunrise
For a soul starved of light

I try to focus my mind on it
But something is blocking the way
But one day this city I'll reach

I now return to balance again
As mind and body unites
And I close the temples of my mind
Lutis Nitra

Find powers within

Upon the seas of starvation

    My InterpretationThis is honestly one of the most exceptional songs ever, musically and lyrically. It starts very slowly and progresses, as do the lyrics.

    The song is about finding personal clarity, and the writer uses the perfect analogy of a daunting journey accross the sea.

    "And sail the seas I know so well." This shows how achieving personal clarity is a regular task.
    "A way out, but not back, I must find." The quest for truth is a driving force that compells him to keep searching for answers.

    The lyrics express the personal struggles and effort that results in purification and/or purgation.

    "I hear music and it guides me
    On my quest to infinity
    A harbor appears within the mist
    It's lighthouse, a sunrise
    For a soul starved of light." The images created are incredible. This is a perfect analogy for "finding the truth".

    Lutis Nitra is an ancient Egyptian chant that enables the person to find Maat. Maat is an Ancient Egyptian concept of "the truth", "the balance", "the order", "the morality".
