Commented Svenson: “My fascination for darkness is a still point of my turning world and influences every tune and word I write. The song ‘The Dead Cry For No One‘ is my way of describing our insignificance and transience versus the self-righteous egos we all carry with us.
We’re gravely missing the whole entirety of our existence. It shouldn’t be about you and your ego. We are all a part of something big together. When you die someone or something else is given life. Don’t repress death. Well, it’s easier said than done. I have an ego too shaped by the world I grew up in and live in. Being mindful of it is the first step.
I lost someone very dear to me when I was writing the album. The song helps me through the sorrowful times, but it’s not a sentimental tune, instead it’s got a pulse. A fist in the air for the dead.”
