As we build a brand new planet
Lets reconstruct and get it straight

Unlock forgotten skills
Travel to a new dimension
Souls from the dark seduction
(Take heed), we are the new invention

We're the settlers of year zero
Lets reconstruct and take it back

Leaders of our time
Heading for a downfall
The thresh hold of revolution
(Take heed) The last freedom call

Blanked out fire etched on the crystal display
The sees are deep
You better swim
Don't go numb
Collect the word, add some gold and give it back
The sees are deep
You better swim
Don't go numb

From a thousand branches
Spreading the new voice

As we're heading for the throne
Connect, evolution will begin

    Wow, Guitars, are awsome, and the power of the lyrics. This Song Means Another Chance In Building This World. If We Could Start Again, Fresh, Will This Earth Be Runned Like It Does Now? Should We Learn To Protect Our Selves? Learn To Swim, Because This World Will Only Get Worse

    Ah, the In Flames sound is indeed untouchable, this owns (like any In Flames track ;))

    Well I've been seing that In Flames wants to reconstruct the worl latley, I seen two to three songs saying that the world should be undergo an Extreme Makeover... This adds one to the collections, I don't think the lyrics are all that speciall but HELL THE GUITAR OWNS MAN!!

    yours truley, Toxik.

    the lyrics mean to me that they youth of today are the rulers of the world and we have th chance to rebuild it better but head for destruction anyways and one person struggleing against it all "The sees are deep You better swim Don't go numb...The sees are deep You better swim Don't go numb"

    i agree with if we had a chance to reconstruct and make things better what will we do...we should do that because it will get worse and we need to swim.

    but what does this part mean? "Blanked out fire etched on the crystal display"

    ^^ Yeh, confuzzling. Jester 666 pretty much sums up the meaning of the song methinks. Astonishing guitar I agree...

    I think Swim is the positive opposite of Jotun. Swim is about reconstructing the planet, Jotun about destroying it. Swim's instumentals sound much hapier than Jonun's too.

    Both can be laced on a same line in my opinion. Swim should ve been integrated in the whoracle Story.

    Both are sick awesome songs, i can play them on my guitar too :)
