Here it comes to subject the terror you forgot
No memories from the past
The unexplainable starts to appear
As your sub-consciousness begins to come back again

Reality fades away
You try to find a solution
Here it's coming now, indecision
You're free but you can't see through the confusion

There is no time
No time to regret
The eraser's coming for your life
You got to run
Stay away from the light
The eraser's here to twist your mind

Feel your soul connected to the universe
The solstice is complete
They controlled your thoughts
You will remember now, what it's all about

Twist the end around, violation
It's burning deep and twisting under your skin
It scares you forever
The proof you will find in your dreams

    General Commentseems to describe a person being chased by a paranormal monster, or perhaps he is just paranoid.

    General CommentI dunno, to me, when I first heard the song, I used to think it was about slowly realizing at the end of your life that there is no god or hope or whatever you may believe. But now, after I've listened to it more and more, and read the lyrics, it seems to be the need to believe in something after death once death is facing you as a reality. And in death, you can choose to believe that you have no hope, or realize that there's a greater sense of existence beyond that on Earth. Not exactly in the heaven idea, but a metaphysical connection to the universe.

    General CommentThis song is about the Hill Abduction. Check it out on Wikipedia. The Hill abduction is the first time that two people have been abducted by a UFO, and had vivid memories of what their experience was like. Its fascinating stuff

    General CommentAlmost all of Peter Tägtgren's lyrics have to do with aliens.

    General Commentto me the "eraser" is the key to this song, what ever you make that out to be (deamon, aleins, sub-conscience or death its self) will be what this song depicts, i'd go with it as something that haunts a person and they cant escapt it so they have to run.

    General Commentholy fuck it hit me like a ten ton brick. this song is about how we all run away from death.

    the subject of terror you forgot??? like who thinks of death coming for them all the time? or accepts it?

    no memories from past = lost loved ones that are suppressed away?

    death is confusing, its guaranteed in most peoples lives to pop up as a solution at one point??

    and well
    "There is no time
    No time to regret
    The eraser's coming for your life
    You got to run
    Stay away from the light
    The eraser's here to twist your mind" its clearly obvious now? lol run away from the light, no time to regret? never regret life cuz death is going to take it all form you!

    and the verse after the above, well kinda not fitting but remember now what its all about makes me think that to live life and know why the other died.

    and the last verse fits in b/c well when you lose someone it burns deep twists and turns and you see them in your dreams

    Song MeaningFor me the meaning of Eraser song is clear. One theory says, that after we die, our memory, or soul memory, will be erased, so when we born again, to a new body, we cannot remember our past live(s). So, that is why they say, don´t go to the light after you die and after your spirit leaves your body, because that light (according to that theory), is a place, where our soul´s memory will be erased to prepare us to a new life. Some humans can remember their past lives, sometimes in dreams. You can call them aliens, or gods, maybe angels. But the light may feel holy and great, but if your memory will be erased, is that so good? That is why humans think that we only live once. I say, we live forever. Energy never dies.
