    I really doubt In Flames understand a lot of the lyrics they write.

    my favourite songs from the lyrical standpoint are 'Evil In A Closet' (it is very congenial song to me) and 'Bullet Ride' (don't know why...for no particular reason)

    I think, it's not possible to say, which lyric is the best...

    every lyric has it's own beauty.

    But, I like RTR, Come Clarity and Soundtrack the most...in case I had to make a decision.

    I really like the lyrics on Clayman and Jester Race, but outside of those albums I like Evil In A Closet's lyrics and My Sweet Shadow's lyrics.

    it's really hard to choose overall, because there's so many good ones but my favorite lyrics are from morphing into primal

    Detonation
    Fireworks and alchemy
    Genes spliced and triggered
    into the future
    and her organic cave

    Seismorgasmic omnipotence
    scenes of magma in my eyes
    Eruption stones my system

    to me this song is saying we are animals and we have our urges and needs and can't stop them

    I think Sundin actually wrote the lyrics for TJR and Whoracle in collaboration with Anders. Sundin also translated Colony into English.

    So I'm guessing the lyrics were Anders' ideas, but he needed someone to help put them in English.

    Wikipedia says that Stanne wrote the lyrics to LS.

    Ok, so I haven't really contributed anything useful to this topic...

    Sky Coyote is quite right.

    Lunar Strain: Mikael Stanne
    Subterranean: Henke Forss
    The Jester Race: Niklas Sundin
    Whoracle: Niklas Sundin
    Colony: Anders Friden
    Clayman: Anders Friden
    Reroute To Remain: Anders Friden
    Soundtrack to Your Escape: Anders Friden
    Come Clarity: Anders Friden

    There are actually a few exceptions. Episode 666 from Whoracle was written in Swedish by Anders and translated to English by Niklas. In addition, two songs from The Jester Race were already remakes - Dead God in Me which is more like The Inborn Lifeless '95 and Dead Eternity - originally from Subterranean and therefore written by Henke Forss. All songs on Colony were written by Anders, however, some of them were translated from Swedish to English by Niklas.

    Actually, the whole song is about a penis:

    I owe this to the animal inside
    and the stiffness that blocks out the daylight
    Morphing into primal
