    "There are children, on the freeway"

    "Passive death of freedom gets me"

    "I want to be forgotten"

    Wherever you are//I am not

    The sound of falling//when the pictures are moving

    And from the gateways you hear me cry//i love you

    Quiet World as a whole really gets to me lyrically, probably more than any other Katatonia song.
    "Four numbers staring back at me - displaying the mediocrity of my presence -
    I'm wasting my day, watching them change"

    Some of my favourite passages:

    Gateways of Bereavement:
    "I stand as I cry
    Mourning in the Silent rain
    Death will light my Burden
    Endless is my Sorrow"

    Nowhere:
    "Atmosphere decays in me I fail to convict my useless days
    The lack of substance Circle of downfall Exitless ways into pale wake
    Tired attempts to crush the design"

    Distrust:
    "Running my way towards oblivion
    Inside my head electric insomnia"

    Don't Tell A Soul:
    "I have been destroyed
    by the perfection that is life
    see I'm moving soon
    see my feet are already on the road"

    I Am Nothing:
    "once I was someone new
    I was chosen for a while
    then with time I am changing
    at least that is what they say

    what is worth with being here
    I pray so often for a change"

    Quiet World:
    "four numbers staring back at me
    displaying the mediocrity of my presence"

    if you would tell me that I was someone
    then for a second I would think
    just like I would try to consider
    how it would feel to know

    "I want to be forgotten, I want you to forgive"

    "When you have no one, no one can hurt you"

    "What is worth being here, I pray so often for a change"

    "I'm just able to ruin you"

    "She was so beautiful, I HAD TO KILL HER!"

    If this is Katatonia, then I like

    "You thought it was over
    It's not over
    I came back
    I brought my axe":headbang:

    Oh you guys said almost everything..
    there's just one more song left:

    the entire, i simply couldn't pick a single line.


    " four numbers staring back at me
    displaying the mediocrity of my presence
    i´m wasting my day wtching them change
    the sun with it's blue sky outside
    shining down on all you happy people
    i´m wasting my day waiting for rain
    need more methods to end each day
    to be happy by living this way "

    displaying the mediocrity of my presence"

    "Decapitated body searching for it's head"

    "Skull fragments are flying through the air"

    "My lips are dry, you gave me drugs to try, hold me when I die"

    "I don't want to hurt you, I just want to kill you"

    "Look out the window twice just to be sure that no one is standing outside the door"

    Goddamn. An awesome topic. Getting shivers from just random lines of lyrics.
    I had to contribute. There are so many good ones though...
    One of my personal favourites would be

    "My dreams of violence
    See them coming true"

    out of Criminals. The coolest way of saying that everything bad you've ever imagined is happening, if I interpreted it right... And with the music. That is a level of art that I'm never going to reach and it makes me feel a bit empty inside :)

    Another one, which is not actually Katatonia, but written by Jonas for Swano and Edge of Sanity. Losing myself has probably one of the best texts that Renkse has written, in my opinion...

    "I am lost
    I feel I am sinking now
    like I was made of rain"

    Losing time
    counting hours
    I'll never see myself again
    And even though I'm alone
    I can't remember what I'm missing
    So I leave it be

    Closing down
    I expect the hopelessness
    And even though I'm alone
    I can't remember what I'm missing
    and that's all I need

    I am lost
    I feel I am sinking now
    like I was made of rain
    Like a wave I roll into the endless night

    I am not afraid
    as the darkness starts
    to make its way
    I breathe as hard as you
    as I end my day
    I sigh and shelter
    as I try to sink that deep
    as deepas you and make sure
    that I won't fall asleep

    Losing days
    I need no hours
    I'll never be myself again
    And even though it's killing me
    I can't remember what I'm missing
    So I leave it be



    is that it !?

    cool dude! awesome lryics.

    That'd be the one. Just got the album, Infernal, end of last year and noticed the text. I thought all the lyrics were written by Swanö, but Losing myself was way too good to be written by him. Checked the covers and it read Renkse. First thought that came to mind: "I should have known..."

    There is also a text by Åkerfelt from Opeth on Infernal, but that isn't too good actually... I think it's Forever Together Forever.

    It is, and Swanö only wrote the lyrics for one song on that album. And that song is, interestingly enough, The Last Song, in which the lyrics about trying to write a song. \v/

    Kinda surprised that lyrics from I Break have not come up......

    "And this time I break
    I will never make another day
    defiant to what's delivered"

    "I will find a way to sever myself"

    "weakness of hope is the strength of decline"

    "The artificial lightsource is creeping with flies"

    "I'm only weather but only to me"
