  24.11.2002:

Fourteen songs of conscious insanity
 
Score: 8 of 10

Stunning professionalism. Bewitching harmonies. What else? Well, the singers excellent when he sings both clean and screaming-like. Perhaps, its the most imaginative and versatile effort IN FLAMES have ever come up with. Although, some would of course doubt if this is the case when versatility makes add few points instead of dropping em. If you asked ME, Id choose first. I.e., adding points. Even though The Jester Race still is my fave, Reroute To Remain strikes as pretty much good album. Sort of a cross between so-called Swedish (or Gothenburg-) school and so-called alternative slightly seasoned with so-called nu-metal. Dont get scared, though. Nu-metal doesnt always stand for disgusting. In short "Reroute To Remain" is pretty much of a good album although I somehow doubt if Ill be giving it a listen more often than once a year Hope you got my point.


LYRICA:


01. Reroute To Remain

It started as a whisper. Now try to dodge this roar. Unified is the most forceful way to go. Waste this one? Its up to you! We need this revolution. Destroy the pattern, anything that separates Across the times, who dares to follow? For years we wandered these circles Hold on to whatever lie gets us through We need this evolution. Design new latitudes Find ways to channel bliss. Us defined is too fragile to neglect. Reroute to remain. Never want to look back in greed Can I please have your attention? There are mountains to cross For all that are willing There are never ending treasures that await you.

02. System

I can not frame, thats why I lose control I aim, I stumble and I fall Our adaptation cant be faithful Your world does not attract me This is the end you see There is no more truth in me As if you would deserve it You are my enemy I cant ignore the way you make me bleed I hate when you throw my thoughts against the wall Got to wake up and make a stand The desperation forces another mistake I count again.I know who to blame My life in vain Who said I was sane Follow your instinct It usually takes you home Dont let these words tear you down You see me hanging by the end of the rope I tell youSlow I go And the wait seems to be over. All I know Is that my life has become such a waste for you I blame and run, sadly all too often I dive into the day without your sympathy I tend to try but lack the focus Becoming a distant memory What once was is quickly forgotten All wrapped up inside Delete all resemblance I feel your relief

03. Drifter

Its hard to believe You could be such a disease I can no longer separate what is real Hope that fate will find me safe All my reflections laugh at me You made me hide my name It just feels bad to say, That therell be another day What you wanted was impossible to define The words I hear are of scrambled letters Guess its been there for years Never let me know, I was alright What you wanted is a mystery to me Building a room with no doors Is this the last of me? Wring the rag for the last few drops Falling into infinity

04. Trigger

Have we lost the spark or a guide? Whats the latest on the screen? Cant be too late to turn around. I need all the help from you I need to find something to blame for a long lost time Im running from something, I dont know Im searching for something, which way to go? Im trying to separate whats real Im running in a wheel Is it dark or is it bright? Whats the latest on the screen? Can you please tell me my name I havent checked it today From green to red our days pass by Waiting for a sign to tell us why Are we dancing all alone? Collect some stars to shine for you And start today cause there are only a few The sign of times my friend Avoid infinity? Are you for real? Just scratch the surface, and you will find Something to blame for a long lost time

05. Cloud Connected

People like you; you live in a dream world You despise the outside and you fear the next one Its in your dream Theres just one question Should I kill or should I be left behind? Sick and tired of all your complaints This is the hour, we bring it down Ive come to realize With every little glimpse you fade I was told that I could fly When least expected - cloud connected You seem to be so introverted How come we fail with all that is given You crossed the line You remember my name Time runs backwards As long as you are heading that way

06. Transparent

Consume all the obscene Persuade the most hideous and ugly Under every pile and stone. A rebirth, for you to find Freedom is to be able to go in any direction So take the uncertain path Open all your senses to new impressions Act like all that was has vanished Secrets left above the grave Its not for one to keep. Youre all so self destructive Spend more time with the broken See what became of their mistake You know you lost when you feel transparent One foot in the open Ten feet ahead Build your own ladder And dont lie to yourself. Be at one with the wind (ever changing) Even if its a struggle Make this your priority Do not stagnate

07. Dawn Of A New Day

The thoughts from yesterday - forgotten I like the way this new skin feels Bring me splinters of tomorrow Collect the parts where I win Against the grain Against the odds Ill rise and I wont trip again The dawn of a new day Never looked as good as this Concrete breath and dust filled tears A one-way ride to inner peace I never thought Id join the others Those who use the dice to solve

08. Egonomic

A mass illusion Blind men in a line They smother their fires with gasoline A strangers contribution. Everybodys on the run No clue where they are heading A spineless attempt Have we lost it completely? It always ends up in a mess A liars ambition, praised like a king Every day in every way were getting weaker You wont go far with the life that youre living Slow and calculated Afraid of the sleeping well Never ever reach the goal

09. Minus

Drug me Infiltrate my neverland Like the floodtide drowning the shore Drug me Youre all over me. You watch my blood begin to boil I love that lullaby Start me up again Electric spine - open mind I leave you, negative behind Watch me all in flames On a butterfly I ride Inhale the light, relax for some time The world outside stays numb tonight Free your mind, express the forgotten The world inside is yours tonight Please me, deliver the insane In the chaos I find peace Please me, remind the gods of my name I believe there is one seat left for me

10. Dismiss The Cynics

Will we find a solution when we add all the numbers? Like they are supposed to be? But no one is closestart all over! If we fail our expectations We fall into the deepest void Is there a limit to how many times well dust ourselves off? What does it take for sanity to remain? Dismiss the cynics..maybe.. The mystery of times Listen to me carefully Its you and me Thats all we need Would you choose supremacy if it led to isolation? Could you handle the solitude? Would you still prefer the throne?

11. Free Fall

Mirror mirror How far will I go? Despite the foundation Im falling Sweet reflection Will you save a place for me? Where am I heading? Could you grant me a haven? For what? I am punished Could we ever repent? Unravel the threads Dont keep it from me This is a free fall Mother Nature Im wide open Waiting for you to move me To feed from your horizons I never seem to understand The time, the place and who I am Define a way to stay alive Its like Im living a lie Father time Every time I stop and feel Youre there to tell me Im already late

12. Dark Signs

Held down, strangled and abused Cut down to half a member Left with his hand tied Everything points in the wrong direction All the joy disappeared The negative has penetrated Once he was in control Whats left, the faintest laughter Were out of focus Weve lost control Are you afraid? I blame our ego and you call me names Do you (really) want to be saved? Youre told that youre trapped below And dark signs help to prove You got to reach further for what life shall provide Feeling pressure from the fold He believes the dream is over Drained blue eye - scorching fire The whole meaning becomes undone.

13. Metaphor

You stole my pure intentions You are the sickness in between Let me in, Ill bury the pain You taught me to be sad as you You almost made me take it all Let me in, Ill bury the pain The sickness that you are A plague that made me starve Do you think you can show me How I got this far? You bend me and you shake me You beg me then you break me Let me in, Ill bury the pain You made me feel like a sinner Now you fear youll die alone Let me in, Ill bury the pain I feel its taking over And everything falls dark Break me open, the desperate cry

14. Black & White

I am one with the world tonight I am proud to be this far from you You say that you have no regrets But I know that you do You told me someone stole the eye I know him too Ive come to the conclusion - yes, I know That between black and white, there is no room for two The scale might be wide, but there is no need to be blind Cause between black and white, there is no room for two I leave all of the grey behind I see clear, I know that Ill find You claim that you are innocent But tell me who isnt You think that youre going to be saved Theres no such thing as a saint
