"The Mundane and the Magic" as written by Mikael Bengt Stanne, Martin Brandstrom, Mikael Niklasson, Anders Jivarp, Niklas Bo Sundin and Martin Henriksson....
Seen through these dreamless eyes
Blind buildings stark to the sky
Silhouettes as dividing walls
Guarding the eternal secret

Where is the flame to haunt you
Who do you answer to
My lies are always wishes
Lies that make me

See beyond the rationale
Accept the fate that nothing is meant to be
Be the least connected
Stay true to the last original

Apply layers to reality
Things only you can see
Add a beat to normality
To tap the core of insanity

I let my dreams cross over
To days of endless gray
If I could merge the mundane and the magic
We'd forge a new unknown
I let my dreams cross over
To nothingness and back again
If I could merge the mundane and the magic
Where is the dark I came to find

In latter days as time will find you
Memories will never let you get closer
The silent sighs in useless company
Wish for darkness and death again
In the face of ignorance and fear
I cast it right back
Some things were never there to begin with
Objectivity is truth denied

Apply layers to reality
Things only you can see
Add a beat to normality
To tap the core of insanity

I let my dreams cross over
To days of endless gray
If I could merge the mundane and the magic
We'd forge a new unknown
I let my dreams cross over
To nothingness and back again
If I could merge the mundane and the magic
Where is the dark I came to find

    General CommentI've related these lyrics to some of my deepest beliefs, but it sounds crazy, and probably im twisting what the lyrics are supposed to mean... but does anybody see how this song might be like: somethings wrong with the human race, and this person is going to deny it in himself and sort of, make his own reality which he'll see as truth. And he's sort of talking about how he'll disconnect himself from the strangeness in the human race (which might be described through the line "Where is the flame to haunt you, and who do you answer to," which might mean something like, "where are his instincts?". He's saying things like "memories will never let you get closer" and "in the face of ignorance and fear, i cast it right back," so he's talking about how he's throwing away his identity.. which is scary... but hes going to because "something things were never there to begin with" which in my opinion (here it gets where people wont agree at all) but knowledge in humans... which was probably given to us by aliens. But thats besides the point.
