Reach for your razor
Cut through the dawn
See through your inner wrath
Keys shan´t open the doors

Behold my heart has stopped
My lungs are laid the final rest
And still I see and do I feel
Yes, but to earthly eyes I am gone
To the land where legends never die
Take me to the twilight land tonight

Again and again and again in every night
The darkness climbs through my walls
Ever screaming silent to the corrupted ears

Never to any man I will spear
My speach it has no value
Eyes that have seen the sights
Bleed through the ages eternal

I ask no more
A life has just begun
Never will I see the sun
And do I miss it
No, my eyes are black
Emotions fled through eyelids closed
Throne of thorns
Clad in shadows

    General CommentPicture this song as your life getting dark, you have seen/felt something terrifying, and it comes back every night and stopes you from sleeping. And that pain makes you cut yourself open, and that fact makes him beeing badly seen by his friends/family etc.. *Never to any man I will spear. My speach it has no value *

    General Commenti think that starting at the second verse it's about dying, then he's like a ghost, and he wants toget taken away to the afterlife

    General Commentmaybe it means his life is become blinded...
    like, he has become numb in a way,
    unable to feel the emotions and such,
    does he miss the sun? (maybe the joys of life?)
    no, he says
    he is content with being just another blinded by life i guess
    thats what i got out of it at least
    my two cents

    General CommentI agree with xJotunx, this song is definetely about a man dying and living some horrible afterlife as a spectre.

    General CommentI love the '99 version of this song.
    It's so much more aggressive, and yet more melodic.
    Reminds of System, somehow.

    General CommentIts about being clad in the shadows and the way to break it is to scream silently and return to what you used to be.

    General CommentAt first I figured it was about dying, but the line:

    "Again and again and again in every night
    The darkness climbs through my walls
    Ever screaming silent to the corrupted ears"

    Makes me think it's about sleep, or perhaps using sleep as a tool of escape.
