Bypassed the day I can hear them coming
They walk round my door and speak of their coming
My trial awaits got nowhere to run
My only words how soon you have come

And I think about what you told me
When I was about to join in

Defy only if you have a way to resist the lies
Decline only if you have the intention of taking this advice
Apply only if you're not afraid to see your spirit die
Retreat only if you dare not hear yourself say goodbye

Who brought me here this place is familiar
Where houses are black under the sun
Strangers pass on streets with strange names
All I can think is how soon they have come

Look at me now they have cut my hair
It's a long way back
They kicked me down and I could not rise
I will never arrive

    General CommentI Love this song, it took a long time for me to notice it but now, it is one of my favorites from Katatonia.
    We have the Narrator trying to escape his fate and the judgement that will be meted out by an agency in pursuit of him that arrives all to soon for the reckoning and his resignation and defeat. The vocals in this piece are so expressive of that state and his apparent challenge to others to avoid his fate. It's an awe inspiring expression of beauty in sorrow and the instrumentation in this piece matches the tone perfectly.
