"Concatenation" as written by and Fredrik/haake Thordendal....
A stale organic cage. Incarceration. I'm in the stranger: me. (Lost in corporeal inanity)
The user of my face; beneath its guise I rot. A paradox in terms. (I am now what I'm not)
Interconnected, fused. My words are its thoughts. I now share my self with my reflection.
Straining to divide our twined formation. Duality within singularity.

(I'm forlorn in my own withering soul, racked by continuous waves of dissolution
My Gemini mind the creator of the undulation. I strain to untangle these malignant bonds,
To become again the one that i was)

Coalescence done, the merging complete, the sentence carried out. (I'm condemned for eternity)
The confluence, our inter-wound flows; surges not to be fused. (Now combined, intertwined)
In this mental cage we absorb our selves. The only certainty is my suffering.
My mind in constant pleas for an end to this concatenation. A struggle all in vain, we're both the same.

(a withering soul torn by the attempts of regeneration. My Gemini mind the obstacle of my redemption.
I strain to elude the face of my other self. To become again the one that i was)

Plug me in, reconnect me to my self. Plug me in, reconnect me to my soul.

Gone are all my hopes, all my vain illusions. Deceived i dwell in me. In the core of my agony.
I fade in this duress. I'm weakening. The one who claimed my front is now the claimant of my soul.

(a withering soul torn by this anti-polar mental integration. My divided mind a system split in two creations.
I strain to reach the separation tools, to be again the one that i was)

Into the core of self, the neuro-axis, I fade
Within the fading core of self I am.....
Gone-bound, lost, away, phased out, non-existing

    My InterpretationThe speaker is struggling to free himself from the shackles of the physical self. This whole song seems to affirm the superiority of the conscious being, while lamenting the "stale organic cage" it must be kept in. The "plug me in line" is a plea for a reunion with the mind/soul, but in the end, his attempts to escape the body are futile. The last three lines show the inability of the mind/soul to break free as it fizzles out and succumbs to oblivion.

    It's interesting to see all of the unvocalized parenthetical lines. Haake just has too many ideas floating around in that head of his, I suppose.

    General CommentThis is a fucking sweet song, hard as all git up, too. Seems to be about the mind body connection. Some Zen notion of self mixed with a little violent refusal of what he is. A kick ass song, anyway.
