BENEATH THE CREEK I am the dark Embedded in your heart I am the fuse Ignited by weakness Set to destroy All that you love What you see What you feel is corruption I am the dark, I am the fuse Guide your hands to cover your eyes Don’t breathe Don’t breathe Don’t make a sound Push yourself towards the ground From the sun above To the water below The answers we seek lay deep within the creek Deeper within Into the darkness Hold your breath Dive deep into regret Follow the light Hold your breath Dive deep into death Into death Guide your hands to cover your eyes Don’t breathe Don’t make a sound I’ll keep the light out yet Just hold your breath and watch me burn in darkness We are not far away from the end There’s not much left of the fuse that was given Remember the reason We spent hours below Forged it into our souls Leave us in the dark Self-destruct Guide your hands to cover your eyes Don’t breathe Don’t make a sound I’ll keep the light out yet Just hold your breath and watch me burn in darkness There’s a corruption inside Lingers within our body There’s a corruption inside of me Painful death and remorse I long for a better end A better end I can see the light I don’t want to go Stay with me

THE SOLSTICE REBIRTH I fear for what I’ll become I am no longer in control Can I survive through the night My fear is blocking my vision I can’t help myself to scream for help Don’t know if I can take the pain I gave it my all to shield me from this hell I lost myself within this burdened soul No longer in control No air can escape my lungs, as the panic sets in This is how it begins Swallow the sun and welcome the night Their eyes lost all life, as we faded into the night Pull me up from the ground My flesh sculptured to their will Drawn from their belief, an endless disease I’m marked for this life, what if I opened my eyes Could I see all the wrong, could I see what I’ve become I am awake from the tremor within Forming from my sin Earth Call my name Cleanse me from my shame I’ll come back In the silence of the night I’ll come alive Swallow the sun and welcome the night Their eyes lost all life As we faded into the night Pull me up from the ground Pull me up from the ground Hang me high Let them see Their creation Let them see Their fear

The Lake 04:55
THE LAKE I don't remember walking out of that forest dream I don’t know if I ever did I don’t know if I ever did Why do I keep being frail Of your pain and frustrations The scent of rot and decay Takes me further down this purposeless path Only to be disintegrated again Physical fault and death close at hand Depleted and weakened I'm at your demand I’m worn out Living in the guilt of being misused Death keeps me up at night Living in the guilt of being misused But I can find no one to help me lift myself off the ground You fill up every empty space It’s like you suffocate me with your absence You did me so much wrong But I can’t help myself To follow you And even though you’re dead I follow you again Even though it's over I know you're dead and gone I keep seeing you from my backyard window at night Forcing yourself in again Arise and untie The night is dark and I swoon In the glimmer of the moon I can’t stop to wonder Was that really you I miss the sound of your voice Every day always the same You fill up every empty space It’s like you suffocate me with your absence You did me so much wrong But I can’t help myself To follow you And even though you’re dead I follow you again (I walked barefoot into the grove behind our house) I follow you again The raw night rain pastes the forest dirt On the soles of my feet. My hands linger, dark shapes Holding me as I follow a ghost My pale skin meets the cold lake Where the leaves still whisper Whisper of violence Whispers of tears I don't remember walking out of that forest dream I don’t know if I ever did

A VOICE IN THE STATIC Do you feel the sour taste of regret Do you lie awake at night Long for change that never comes Time consumes everything I’m holding on to what I have It’s never enough The love is lost The love is lost A noise in the static washed away An empty cry for help no longer calls to me I’ll remember the day when death took your heart And swayed you away I’ll keep my feet on the ground I will never forget you And I will never forgive myself Death They should’ve taken me instead I can’t imagine the pain I hear them calling your name In my dream The love is lost I toss and turn in the dead of night Those last words we shared, I wish I could take them back Free me from my fear The end is drawing near A noise in the static washed away An empty cry for help no longer calls to me I’ll remember the day when death took your heart And swayed you away I’ll keep my feet on the ground I will never forget you And I will never forgive myself I will remember the day When death took your heart And swayed you away I’ll never forget I’ll never forget I could feel the sour taste of regret I lay awake every goddamn night

Mask Ov Lies 05:12
MASK OV LIES I was too young to understand What you said never made any sense to me Being caught in this mess Two became one by force not reason I waited for a better day The darkness comes for me This isn’t who I am I need to breathe again Don’t want to suffocate I wore the same mask for years on end Kept it to myself Tired of letting this slip, how could you be so selfish One act of selflessness could save this mess You are nothing to me Force my hand to suffocate the darkness Weighed down to the deep of the world Water, fills my lungs Sink beyond the dark Take it, take it to heart Please tell me father Can I save myself Like you saved yourself from raising your daughter I tried to push it forward I tried to make it work You never pulled any strings For all the days that you missed She never understood your ways She was too young to understand your disgrace Is this what you want Is this the family you say that you love Force my hand to suffocate the darkness Weighed down to the deep of the world Water, fills my lungs Sink beyond the dark Take it, take it to heart Father, is this what you wanted Is this what you meant by love I will hold you to your name For what you became to me Monster A path consumed by your hate There is no light to guide your way Would you ever rue the day Watch how it all turn to grey Those tears in my eyes They speak of where we are and where we’ve been I will hold you to your name You’ve become what I fear the most Monster, monster

COWARDS TONGUE You stole existence While I sat idly by your side The light shines bright on you casting a shadow long That’s where you'd find me Hiding deep, distraught But now I crawl out of my hole to get what’s due There is no room for you now in this world I design The odd piece was you all along Time to right what is wrong I kept the name off my tongue The taste was overwhelming But now it sounds so sweet And feels like justice Revenge, let me sing it to you Another song for the fallen But the first for me Vengeance, sing with me Sweet melody Born with the heart of a coward Your final song has yet been sung I submit again Then you see me and you'll feel it creeping in Then the one time I win All this time I never did you any wrong Why did it come to this But now we're here so sing my song I wish it felt wrong But inspiration, admiration Takes me over for the first time Now I take from you what you made me lose Lay you down to rest, the deed is done But now the blood is chilling Tempers fading Trembling clarity sets in I can’t bleed anymore The wounds are all dry I can’t breathe The ashes of fires long faded, they fill my lungs And I may be a coward But you won’t go alone Theres still half of a bone in my body So here I go What a bitter end For a life of discontent I couldn’t do it right, not even do it wrong We couldn’t live as equals But maybe die like ones One final song

From Soot 05:09
FROM SOOT There is nothing left for me The body filled with grief I wish I could start again To feel something else than shame Just close my eyes, just close my eyes Secluded from the pain It left me without control Without control I never wanted to burn my home Awoken by the flames They will swallow me whole I have written that letter to many fucking times It’s all just empty lies It’s all, it’s all just in my mind Tore myself apart Just let it die, let it die It won’t feel the same without letting go This can’t be what I am I was too blind to see it Another life lost to this hell (I never wanted to be the one in the end) Pacing in the cube of regret How could it come to this Every day is just the same Just waiting for the end Waiting for the end Solitary, confined I am defined I’m broken enough to lose my skin Fallen into a depression At the start of my regression Just like I did in my dream Screaming at the light as it blocked my sight Why would I fight it, why would I fight It won’t feel the same without letting go This can’t be what I am I was too blind to see it Another life lost to this hell (I never wanted to be the one in the end) I will rise from these ashes This rebirth is not for me Don’t ever feel any shame You’ll always have someone to blame I never wanted to feel at home At best I just want to rest I will remember the day When it all burned away A heart of soot will never rot A heart of soot will never rot

Cursed Earth 04:58
CURSED EARTH My body will turn to dust I’ll carve my unspoken words Upon the infinite curtain I can feel the flow of emptiness Let me live through the endless spiral A torment slowly tearing through my flesh Let me grasp for my last breath For those forsaken Engulfed by the fire What do I feel inside What do I feel What do I feel inside What do I feel Set me free I beg myself to forget about the guilt I trap inside of me (What do I feel inside) Please burn it out (What do I feel) Please burn it out I’m not scared I’ll put the flame to a frozen heart Break or melt (Let this be the end) Let this be the end (The end of it all) The end of it all Deep within It’s there Gnawing at my soul Would I leave my shame And take away all their pain Stay away from this place This is one I could never erase I have to follow the water That will carry my soul Through the current Into the abyss Feel the burning coal How could it come to this I wither away, wither away What do I feel inside What do I feel Set me free I beg myself to forget about the guilt I trap inside of me (What do I feel inside) Please burn it out (What do I feel) Please burn it out I’m not scared I’ll put the flame to a frozen heart Break or melt (Let this be the end) Let this be the end (The end of it all) The end of it all Black smoke Fill my lungs Fill my lungs Ignite the fire That will burn my body End the noise that once was my voice Come to me Silence I’ll give you my all That silence will ignite the fire I will carve my unspoken words I will live on through the silence Curse the earth For all that it’s worth Scattered below A tale of woe Curse the earth For all that it’s worth Scattered below A tale of woe

Trauma 05:09
TRAUMA I find myself here again There was never a last time You just kept shoving me deeper into your hate Have you written my fate with the help of the hand of death Why can’t you accept my heart Why could you never love me from the start You should be proud I’ve followed every footstep you taught in your life Clinging to remorse How far will this go before it gets worse You’re not a hero I feel the scent of disgust How can you live with yourself You hurt more than you loved And I screamed for help Dwelled in this hell for too long What can I hope for that’s not already gone I don’t know myself but I recognize this trauma You can never redeem yourself Let me out of this nightmare In the dark of the night A form of hate takes its disguise A shadow born from within Heed the call of your father Aligned my soul to his will I want to feel that I am alive But inside, it’s hopeless I know it resides in me Your blood flow in my veins Like father Like son Like father Could you ever look back Feel the failure in your mistakes You are a fucking disgrace Not just to me but to everyone else In the dark of the night A form of hate takes its disguise A shadow born from within To say this is your legacy Is this how you want it to go How would you know when you’re consumed by this mess You’re looking at the world through a broken lens This is anguish This is trauma Anguish Trauma Look at the world through me This is anguish This is trauma You will see the beginning of the end I will never forget what you did This is anguish This is trauma

about

"Vemod", the second longplayer of the 5 Swedes is a clear further development of the already known trademarks of the band and thus comes across even more intense than its predecessors. The 10 tracks on the new album, which was mixed and mastered by Buster Odeholm (Vildhjarta, Humanity's Last Breath), are lyrically haunting and deal with personal setbacks, world-weariness, anger and melancholy or wistfulness (="Vemod" in swedish).

Over the years, Forgetting The Memories have remained true to their particular style, yet have constantly evolved and defined themselves as a truly essential force within the genre.
