    1~ THE NEW BUILD

    What you enforce
    Once stronger than logical
    Beyond the focus
    With the grander ideas
    One microcosmos
    In this wretched piece of hell
    Distant memories of what empathy we felt

    No revolution
    No revolution
    In what they must overthrow
    It's not a secret we have known
    The need that is our enemy

    Chorus:
    I don't ever want to see you
    Doing all the same things as me
    Don't ever let this be you
    Knowing what it is that drives me!

    It's all in the future
    What's said with one foot in the grave
    It's all in the plan
    Well what we never could achieve

    No satisfaction - no satisfaction
    We excuse ourselves from progress
    By those wondering the motives
    Our story said too much

    Whatever beat that drives the impulse
    Whatever tune it carries through
    <My(?)> fierce soul, it rattles empty
    It's one reality too few?

    Were we just never wider
    Another drop of what we grasp…
    DOWN

    Oh a vicious curse
    What law that we forsake inside
    A conflict
    And the one against the wiser
    None the wiser

    Our space invaded!

    Selfish, they begin to cover
    The sentences of utopia
    One to escape the arguments
    Put another filter on

    Chorus

    2 ~ THROUGH SMUDGED LENSES

    Let no one be their selves
    Turn off the century lights
    Now within the others
    Turn off the watchful eye
    The brightest is the night

    Shelter for the shatter
    In unison we strive

    Dare to disassociate
    That cuts the pass of time
    What actual life's matter
    The ends that fast unfold
    Will the hour of meeting
    Let silence speak the truth

    I want to hear you scream
    I want to see you…(scream/die)

    Stand and cut the barriers
    A feature and a failure
    Thirsting for a higher place
    Marking different strokes
    What weak reflection
    It tears your soul apart….
    No selection
    It tears our world apart

    These walls are protecting us
    Burn them to the ground
    This haven of refuge
    Burn it to the ground

    So smudge your lense a little
    What matter the void
    Face down the sound of wild
    And let it go

    Sentences of choice
    Is what I want of your design
    ???? your devices
    We stumble on
    I want to hear you scream, I want to hear you scream

    Burn it to the ground
    No final word to save you
    Burn it to the ground

    Take me to the gate
    Where bear the darkest void
    Thousands for the agony
    Where silence speaks alone

    To rely on static
    With ???? dark

    How else can we move on?
    I want to hear you scream, I want to see you die!

    3~ OUT OF NOTHING

    Make enemies of truth and reason
    In that a rage is born
    Start out the promise and adventure
    When the <ritual> was never the goal

    Chorus:
    How does it feel, to run out of nothing?
    Where do you go, when you run out?

    Never you mind, the grand perspective
    Your outer forces, kept at bay
    Washing out of the field of vision
    To retain a sense of control
    Your focus will remain unfixed
    In the haze of a world unhinged

    Create a sense of purpose
    Around which you base your faith
    The doubt that haunts your skin
    An itch that will linger on
    Forever

    Chorus

    You wade forth, critique as an offender
    But never question, where your motives lie
    As a part of the greatest fable
    The beast so long forgotten
    Is this in a deadened rampage
    Destruction as a saving grace
    RAAGGH!!!

    You run out of nothing

    Chorus

    4 ~ THE ENDLESS FEED

    You try to hide the fact that you're from yourself
    Your own feeble entertainer
    Is none other than the one we call you
    And you need the others to fortify your disgust
    For the worst of us, to the rest of us
    No!!
    Chorus:
    Entertain the thought that we are still alive
    Entertain the notion of impending doom
    Entertain the worst suspicions and our fears
    Just pull us in and take us down

    I hear a mighty cheer
    Your fate can not be any stronger
    Re-read, the stage is set
    A product of what will be fed
    Oblivious, all by design
    Non susceptible to any mind
    Chorus

    I can take what's being given
    I can down whatever comes
    I will do what you deem necessary
    My fear compels me!

    No more fictitious names
    I will not be made a mockery
    No more chaos seed
    I am not what you're supposed to see
    No!!

    With all the signs of the danger
    Everything is lost
    You're the name of entertainment
    We're all doomed

    Chorus

    5~ LOST TO APATHY

    The heartstrings hold off with despair - Fail to resonate
    Frailness of our body breaks - Will disintegrate

    NO!

    By <locks our filthy states>
    Failure to communicate
    None too <secular/sentient>
    Where no see no virtuous magic
    Against the motions

    I go inside as the trials will end
    Filter the nonsense and laugh at what's left
    Indecision - beyond vision
    What matters taken away
    Chorus:
    Look at the shell that is you
    Empty, fragile, weak,
    Soon (Now) the battle is over,
    Lost to apathy

    So overcome with pointless tears
    To retest pain receptors
    Nothing matters ever here
    Put up another reaction

    These eyes will never see
    Covered up from reality
    Chorus

    The unknown world that you deny
    No priority - Cannot fail if you never start
    Unpredictable

    I want to know - Where did it end?
    For madness to start
    Always the skeptic and never the part

    The end <of virtue>, non-descriptive
    It matters not
    Chorus

    6~ MIND MATTERS

    You are all that matters
    In my private demonology

    Those who fail us now
    The sons of wishes
    The bastard child of dream
    Enemies of hope
    Let it be gone - it's all pretend
    Mind matters, matters not.

    Never. Again. In perfect clarity.
    We'll see the day with child-like vision.
    It doesn't leave a-
    We're all without guidance
    The old disaster
    All matter without import
    Our search is wider

    RAGH

    Cast off the white and wholesome dreams
    Mind matters, matters not
    YEAAGH.
    No need to see you there
    The path we made is clear
    Just stay ahead of me
    This is not safe for me to see

    Mind Matters, matters not.
    This time, I'll bring you up to nothing
    Project again, direct the pose to action

    All across the board
    Judge comings close to call
    Let it be gone
    It's all pretend
    Mind. Matters. Matters. Not.

    7~ ONE THOUGHT

    Insufficient facts
    Make up for a free foundation
    I'm bringing the obscene
    Form the opinion
    Uncustomized

    <Things ... substance for your part ... how... wrong>
    Let him <decide it/desire>
    Let him <decide it/desire> who will take the blame
    Another soul to drain
    What is it that we see? x2

    Chorus:
    One thought bringing it down
    Original sinners
    One thought bringing it down
    Switch it off

    How's it come to this?
    Enjoying things by proxy
    Live through others
    Die just like the rest
    We all end up screaming
    A little louder
    To cover up another piece of silence
    You scream a little louder!
    <Fortunate... to me>
    Turn it off!

    Chorus

    Brace for impact!

    Towards a greater vision
    When life will stand to fall

    Tyranny of fear
    A stranglehold on us
    Stronger day by day
    It's time to turn it off

    Chorus

    8~ DRY RUN

    It comes from all we're giving
    In seemingly endless supply
    Our signals crossed defiantly
    Into this volatile mix we guard

    You stop and I repeat
    The error of character, grounds
    <weakness> are a part of the deeds that take you
    Run back down, no!

    You were .. one's that see
    Misgivings in historic nightlight
    Fill in the blanks

    That one will fall
    To the hearts of others

    Chorus:
    NO!
    There is nothing left!
    A mere shadow, when adrenalin runs dry
    NO!
    There is nothing there, an empty prop
    When adrenalin runs dry

    It gets you deep down - NO! NO!

    Yes they told you about the blazing heights
    The space from which the world is viewed
    Where's the mirror, that shatters the image?

    The crypt<ic?> careful hiding, retreat from another attack
    Painlessly forgiving, a refuge indeceptive back

    It works within the system, and they wont understand
    When it is a lone deceiver, will fool you ..

    NO! NO! NO!
    Torn to waste .. and it's all about nothing
    We want to scream within the span of attention
    Brought to grow
    Let the chaos pass
    That one will fail
    I hear screams in terrors, I hear screams in terrors
    Chorus

    9~ AM I 1?

    I grant to you -
    No privilege of person
    No sense of self
    A denial of choice
    It wants out

    So from all the little bits and pieces
    A simple case of lost and found

    A wicked new beginning
    I don't ever want to see

    It's the oldest trick in the book
    Just like everything you always knew
    Torn apart its very end
    There's nothing left to be

    I can't have a mind to say
    All the things that bother me today
    Yeah you better check if it's me, in that coffin of yours
    I'm just the one
    The one you thought you knew
    Chorus:
    I am one?
    Who am I?
    No character to be lost inside

    The mind is hard to please
    Surrendering with ease
    Words clenched in fists of rage
    Can't feel the frustration
    There's a part of me that cannot deal
    With the character I am forced to be

    It's a thinly failed plan
    To lay a world afoot
    Lost in community
    Light in belonging

    Is there really nothing more than this?
    All the emptiness remains
    So pull up your preface
    And take your place again
    Chorus

    10~ SENSES TIED

    Riddled by the tropics
    What was that makes the edges burn
    Here on the outskirts - the prosperity - the pride
    Stretched as far as one can reach
    But I learned (to) defy your meaning
    There's something out there, lost beyond your power lines

    It's all the same to me - it's all the same to me
    Lost all faith in promises, and deadline closing in
    Tired of deciphering, the wayward strands of truth
    Chorus:
    I don't care - Cause I can't feel!
    I don't know - Anymore!

    What ..
    Which fouled ... and letter
    But within it's very nature,
    The ability to distort

    There's nothing in the words I hear
    That makes me want to take a stand
    ... and show it is a cage
    It's all the same to me - It's all the same to me.

    The <..> of our conditioning
    This world - <take it, like it>
    Rather keep me in the dark than look me in the eye and LIE!

    Chorus

    Chorus (2):
    It's all the same thing pulling us down
    The senses punish here
    It's all the same things making us blind
    There's nothing here for me

    Hear it coming? Waiting for you now.

    I can't even stand and told to fabricate - A denial on display
    Make you a <litmus> - left for dead
    Thinking about what ..
    We touch the very..
    When nears that hear no end to which

    Unwilling or unable, the difference left for .. judgement

    It's all the same to me, it's all the same to me

    It passes on, from wicked mouth, as vision takes another run
    New bound oppressor - What<teachers?> brought down now stand tall

    Chorus

    Chorus (2)

    11~ MY NEGATION

    It's all in <leaking> ego crave
    The sun can never set
    Why do threat of anger never linger?
    Why does the ember turn to stone?
    To where the longing goes
    In with the sense of old

    A face of nothing can never see
    As blind as free
    Everything you want - Is in the end of this
    Everything I need - Will be at the end of me
    Chorus:
    My negation
    (How) will you know my name?
    You sense the danger coming
    My negation
    (How) can you see my face?
    What's to become of me?

    The art of reduction
    Stripped down to - What seems defendable
    Scale to bare revisions
    Learn to stop making sense
    Ravelling pillars - Of towering fear
    Rational instincts - And insight to spare

    With the forces
    End of grace

    Everything I fear - Is in this failing
    Not the end - Of what I am
    Is in this end
    Chorus

    (How) will you know my name?

    Feel free to delete this thread, but now you have them all pretty much. :)

    also:

    Through Smudged Lenses:

    Stand and cut the barriers
    A feature and a failure

    I think it sounds more like:

    Stand and top the canyon
    A vision and your failure


    .....

    Take me to the keep
    Where bear the darkest void
    Thousands for the agony
    Where silence speaks alone

    Out of Nothing:

    As a part of the greatest fable
    The beast aread forgotten

    Lost to apathy:

    By locks our filthy states // Is a winnar I think

    ....

    Ongoing choice as the trials will end
    Filter the nonsense and laugh at what's left
    Indecision - Wrong division
    ....

    I want to know - Where did it end?
    For madness to start
    Always the skeptic and never the part
    Indefective, non-descriptive // It's NOT The end of virtue
    It matters not

    One Thought:

    Insufficient facts
    Make up for a free foundation
    I'm bringing the obscene
    Form the opinion
    Uncustomized

    Sticks are numb, that substance void of purpose - we, were we wrong

    ....

    To cover up another piece of silence
    You scream a little louder!
    Fortune has run to me
    Turn it off!

    Senses Tied:

    I can't even stand and tone a fabricate - A denial on display // I cant think of anything better..

    I'm hearing very clearly "body-wrecks" in lost to apathy instead of the "body breaks". It also makes more sense to me as it continues with "will disintegrate".

    Ok.. what do you think about the lyrics overall? Most songs look pretty good now, maybe not senses tied.. I'll keep fixing it. Let people now that the lyrics are online. :)

    this morning i figured something new out at Senses Tied while listening. but i forgot :(
    the only thing i could mention now is that it sounds like "The hands of our conditioning".
    ah no i meant in through smudged lenses
    i don't hear "what matter the void"
    but cannot tell what it could be else :/

    i got a funny thing about senses tied...
    i hear it like this:
    "What shall we...
    with vowels, nouns and letters" dunno if it fits in the song, but that's the way it sounds for me.

    That helped me figure out the rest:

    What's sure we better conjure up
    With wovels, nouns and letters
    But within it's very nature,
    The ability to distort

    (i've translated it, so don't count on it being 100% accurate, but here's) brief song meanings according to stanne in the latest issue of close-up magazine;

    the new build - about re-building yourself and trying to find a new kind of sensation/feeling.
    through smudged lenses - how you can soften in your view on the world and think that it's ok after all, if only you peer and cover your ears.
    out of nothing - the feeling of emptiness, exhaustion and irritation.
    the endless feed - the endless news flow.
    mind matters - the more smart and eloquent you are, the less people listen overall/to the entirety. (if anyone has a better way to translate "i det stora hela", please post it.)
    one thought - about shutting off your surroundings.
    dry run - about tiredness and how to regain the zeal/spark.
    am i 1? - about how to find your own identity and not just imitate cool people from tv or in metal mags.
    senses tied - about the relief in shutting away your senses.
    my negation - how [stanne] wants to avoid transfering all his bad sides to his soon-to-be one year old daughter.

    the lyrics seem to get very personal? was this always in DT lyrics? i never really cared about lyrics of any kind of music i listen to. but i like the new lyrics and somehow i can identify myself with them.
