Your favourite Katatonia 'hook'

What is your favourite Katatonia hook? (A hook is a musical idea, a passage or phrase, that is believed to be appealing and make the song stand out. -taken from wikipedia)

I'm pretty sure their hasn't been a thread on this before so I'll start off...

For My Demons

you would never sleep at night
if you knew what I've been through
and this thought is all I have
to trust upon when light is gone

the way it's sung gets stuck in my head everyday. So... what is yours?

Clean Today

Will the streetlights reflect me well enough
Am I transparent when I am clean
Will the darkness around me be so strong
That there is no way I can be seen.

I really don't have one favourite part, but lately I've been addicted to parts like
'From the Gateways hear me cry, I love youuuu'
and
'Brave try the meaning of loss, I know your smile is deadly at this point, wherever you are I am not'
I also like the bridge in Complicity

The main riff from 'For My Demons' which is also the riff during the chorus. Best hook ever? Maybe.

I'll go with the chorus of "Chrome."

I find those lyrics to be extremely visual and haunting, and that little keyboard flourish is just the icing on the cake of sadness.

Had To Leave:
I had a choice
You had to leave
Into the night
This was my choice

Clean Today:
Will the streetlights reflect me well enough
Am I transparent when I am clean
Will the darkness around me be so strong
That there is no way I can be seen.

Chrome:
Burn down my house..

Criminals:
Gather your strength and break free..

O how I adore that part!!


And Had to Leave:
it's so hard to explain what I meant
when I said that I wanted you dead
but I saw you fuck up and I just can't get back
the feeling I had for you
so I put all my strength into my only will
it was the only thing to do
and now I only regret that I cried
cause you would never do that for me


Strained:Chorus

A Darkness Coming:That killer lead guitar part!!!

Actually every fuckin moment in Tonight's Decision...

'burn down my house and make something happen'
great lyric.

the keyboards in the Evidence outro, and how each time the riff comes around they become more apparent, totally make the ending what it is. (and without the outro that track wouldnt be half as good).

its common to relate to random words/phrases in lyrics even if the entire plot/point of the song is totally unrelated. the chorus from for my demons is a good example, i'd probably say thats a favourite hook of mine aswell.
