"Carry the Cross" as written by Michael Amott, Angela Gossow, Christopher Amott and Daniel Erlandsson....
We walk through the ages
The world on our shoulders
The burden we carry
To the dark end of our days

A thousand eyes watching
Every step we are taking
Waiting to see us
Struggle and fall

And when we are beaten
The cross holds us down
I hear them laughing
And walking away

Carry the Cross
And suffer the loss
Hear my confession
Forever damnation

Reincarnation
Bleeding forever
Recover the pain
Pain gives me strength

Pick up the cross
And carry it on
Over and over
The wheel turns again

And when we are beaten
The cross holds us down
Ihear them laughing
And walking Away

Carry the cross
And suffer the loss
Hermy confession
Forever damnation

    General CommentFirst time ever commenting on lyrics, but I think this song is about putting with your own issues, dealing up with your own struggles, and just carrying them onward until you die, hence the lyrics "Carry the Cross/And suffer the loss.

    That's my opinion anyway.

    General Commentomg amazing song why only the one comment?
    i luv this song... had 2 lern it straight away.
    i think its about a murderer in a graveyard
    who beats them, and kills them by sticking a cross into them.
    Then they laugh and walk away.
    The wheel is perhaps a wheel of fortune.
    who will be killed next?
    possible correction:

    waiting to see us
    struggle and fail

    not sure about it. it just fits better with this idea.

    General CommentHear my confession
    Forever damnation

    makes me think someone lead a wicked life and are talking to god in the afterlife. and for whatever reason they're condemned.
