No, it's not annoying. I think you're really good at interpreting, I enjoy reading these!

Hehe, well thanks =)

Any other songs you would like to see? I will do the Hive, because someone said that they were going to do it, and multiple interpretations are always good.

The Hive... hmm, this is going to be a tough one, because the only thing that really gives me a clue of what the songs concept is, is the chorus. I don't know if I am going to do a full interpretation of the song, because the whole thing with bees/hornets/wasps is throwing me off. Basically, I think the song is about how man could have taken a different path, and been so much more than what we are now... obviously taken from the lyrics, but we are too numb to realize this, and we cannot feel guilty for everything that we have put the earth through to get to the position that we are in now.

Anders was creating the concepts, Niklas helped him phrase them in English. From what I understand, Anders wasn't familiar with more complicated English words and Niklas helped him with that. I believe Niklas did write some songs lyrics all by himself, but he worked with Anders on most.

Gotta run and didn't get to read through the entire thread so if this is already covered ground ignore it.

The last part, about Inverting the fjords, etc: I view it in the light of this Jotun is changing everything that is precedent in the world. The NY Skyline, the Statue of Liberty: Two thing synonymous with North America, things that have stood a test of time and are easily recognizable with a place, such as the fjords of Scandinavia. Basically, this thing changes all these, either destroying them, dwarfing them or becoming the symbol for the earth like those are for their respective areas. In this concept piece if one was to look down upon earth from the Mushroom-scattered (the spores being escape pods from earth?) colonies or speak about it they'd see or have brought to mind this Jotun, that changed everything in their world and basically destoryed it.

My two cents.

Now hit me with the chorus here, and the chorus comes in and it's like "These chords, and now he's going to play that chord," and he doesn't! He plays a chord that doesn't exist! The weirdest twist ever! - a very excited Dan Swano

Big fucking deal at least i dont masturbate over who wrote the lyrics on what (sinfully childish and imature i know but its a must). and whats with the racism now and yes im drunk 24/7 because im english... nice one at least i won't be serving kebabs in a sweaty chippy like you will probablly be doing for a living. Im sorry it had to come to this but you started it.
