"Lunar Strain" as written by Jesper Claes Haakan Stroemblad, Bjoern Ingvar Gelotte and Anders Par Friden....
For there is a purpose and reason
Beyond all human apprehension
The shrieking silence in the blackness of space

For there is a knowledge more complex
Than life on this planet
A knowledge in tune with the progress of stars

Lunar Strain

All across the milky way
Life suffers defeat
Life that once were treasured

What once was nothing
Has blossomed into form
Once it was I that was nothing
But now they say I will die

All across the galaxy
Life suffers defeat

Lunar Strain

From nothingless to reality
As we see it
From nothingless to life
My dismal tears of anguish
Bleed into one with the songs of my heaven
Loneliness in pain

Emptiness his power, loneliness his pain
Serenity his might
Yet we shall be honoured
In the starforsaken night

Astral strain
All around my silent moon
Life suffers defeat

Astral strain

For there is a purpose and reason
Beyond all human apprehension
The shrieking silence in the blackness of space

    General CommentThis song is about how the universe has a purpose and reason, which mankind does not understand.

    General CommentI think it means that human understanding can only go so far, and we can never hope to truly understand everything about the universe.

    General CommentIntresting song, there are ofcourse many possible interpritations. Possibly that life isnt something we understand. Its more complex and science dosent explain it.

    General CommentI think that it's about how we think we're so amazing, whilst there is a universe of things that might be way more important.
