As they all felt the fire
They turned me into an outsider
I never heard from them again
So ironic when you called for a favor today

It's always easy to judge
But takes a lot to be specific
'cause as you preach you're opening the door
To your egos past

There was a day when I could forget
I could forgive but those days are gone
I see them fade

Filth runs in every new day

I learned to mute the anger
I never thought I would be there again
A moment, a dead end
I lost myself in here
I ran as I saw the end
Should I've joined the fight instead?
Hope you're listening
'cause now times have changed

I take a look around
Say this moment's mine
Flee all the weak minds
Feel my missed hidden rage

    General CommentThis is one of the few In Flames songs that are pretty straight forward, its about the nerve a former friend wanting something after they burnt that bridge.
    The opening guitar part is sick! Just try playing it

    General CommentDefinetely Fiend. I completely agree with SDMFBLS. Been there done that. One just feels like screaming a big fuck off to those people who are friends only at times or when it's more convenient for them.

    General Commentwhat the hell?
    Filth Runs In Every New Day = FRIEND!
    But the chorus also spells Filth (Runs) In Every New Day..
    you don't think it's just a co-incidence do you?

    General Commentfor me its about that. as implosivefire said, a big fuck off to those times and "times" friends. i got identified with this song when a friend stopped hanging out with me and the guys cuz he met new people with more money, more girls, and cars -.-. first time i red this lyrics the image of that fag came to my mind.
