Hey Kind of a dumb question...but I just want to talk about it anyway! Does anyone know if the lyrics in the songs on Damnation were inspired by personal experiences of the band, or are they just songs without any meaning as such? Because to me some of the lyrics (especially in 'Hope Leaves' and 'In My Time Of Need') seem to be (quite obviously) dealing with sadness and loss. Things turned to shit for me and I was pretty sad so all I listened to for like a week was Damnation. Haha then the anger and frustration set in and my cd player circulated Slayer - God Hates Us All and Pantera - The Great Southern Trendkill. Then I dyed my long hair black and bought a long black coat...it's wicked! I think my parents got a bit worried though hahahahaha.
