    What is it coming to
    I am alone to go on
    You have lost
    Noone has won



    "I am alone to go on" is actually "I am unwilling to go on"

    Am I the first to say "This Sucks"
    The song is great and everything and I can't wait for the album and the single but isn't it a little early to be releasing a preview more than 2 months before the release.Only the anticipation is enough to burn the weak minded.
    Then again maybe someone will pull a "Ghost Reveries" stunt and kill the anticipation.in either case it suck for the band and suck for the fans.

    Yeah I know, also my grammer was terible that day.

    It is a pitty they're making us wait so long for the release, but I've enjoyed all of Katatonia's stuff so far, so hopefully it'll be worth the wait...

    I will miss the announcement in the middle of the song. How long do you think it continues for after the fade out?

    Probably a good minute or two. A minute or two that I'm desperate to hear.

    I've have listen to the song for over a 100 times now. And after reading all your lyrics it's time for me to post my own. It's not really anything new, but just a mix of what I believe to be the most likely correct parts.

    Here I go:

    the neck, then the chain
    my head, is hung in shame
    the neck, then the chain
    my head, is hung in shame

    I thought that you went cold [??]
    that you would carry on
    but now that I am gone
    what else has been withdrawn

    you used to be like my twin
    and all that's been
    was it all for nothing

    are you strong when you're with him
    the one that’s placed you above us all

    i think of love
    i let it pass
    it feels like fire
    but it won't last

    you used to be like my a-twin [??]
    and all that's been
    was it all for nothing

    are you strong when you're with him
    who once placed you above us all

    you used to be like my twin
    and all that's been
    was it all for nothing

    are you strong when you're with him
    do what has placed you above us all

    what is it comming to
    im unwilling to go on
    you have lost
    noone has won

    --

    I love this song :Spin:.

    He doesn't say anything different there. It's just the way he sings it.

    Hurray for me... a friend of mine got his hands on the promo cd, don't ask my how or why, I don't know,but there's a punch to it.
    He listened to the whole cd and said that every song on that promo has that announcer 3 or 4 times during every song.
    I asked him to rip and send me just "my twin" since I already heard most of the song and has the announcer anyway so no harm no foul.
    what can I say?A great song, slighty better quality and finally I got to hear the faded part from the sample on the site and of course...."you are listening to My twin from the forthcoming Katatonia album...."

    ...I hope it's ok and I won't get banned for this

    I would hope not. I've worked at record shops and it's really easy to hear music before it's released through promos. I think you went about this the right way by saying it was through a promo. Record labels release promos to be heard, so you shouldn't get punished for that. I personally am going crazy waiting to hear this album. :loco:

    Is It just me or does "My twin" heavily influenced by A Cerfect Circle and Dream Theater?

    i agree with the a perfect circle thing. Although the dream theater bit might have daniel coming in and we shall have a repeat of who thinks of dream theater and katatonia:D I personally dont. But i really am craving for this album.

    The clean guitar riff which starts "my twin" sounds a little like beginning of Change of seasons.

    I have listened to their new song a million times and I love it.Every time it keeps getting better. The melody is so like Katatonia plus the lyrical part.
    The most I like those lines:" I think of love and let it pass,it feels like fire but it won`t last".
    Good work:)
    Can´t wait ´til March..

    I definitely agree with this, the thing that struck me most actually while listening to 'My Twin' was the fantastic bass playing, big thumbs up to Mattias.
