Katatonia - Ambitions Lyrics




Hear my thin voice
Hear my words fall down
See my ambitions fade out
Had so much better times

At night walking on the tracks
Change my perspective
Idle hands with wounds and cracks
Stale
Ineffective
But past the veil
The memories of things
Still so in love with you

So dense this strife
Kicked the life
I feel this weight upon my heart

Indecision
Sow the seed
Aspiration is never within reach
At night there is no other view
Sing a song for the ones who never made it

In the ward under yellow lights
Under linden trees I am transparent
And led to believe that things would change if I go away
The lowering sky under which we go

So dense this strife
Kicked the life
I feel this weight upon my heart

Hear my thin voice
Hear my words fall down
See my ambitions fade out
Had so much better times

Constant noise behind the overcoming
I had no choice but to rearrange
The scar is open
I am not allowed to understand
I take it as you're not coming back

Indecision
Sow the seed
Aspiration is never within reach
At night there is no other view
Sing a song for the ones who never made it

See my ambitions fade out
Had so much better times

Katatonia Ambitions Comments
  1. Ad. D.

    This carries the Viva Emptiness spirit in it.

  2. Anuar Jaamaain

    fuckin love this song

  3. Unka Truk

    I love Katatonia. Their music makes me want to strip naked, sit on the floor in the corner of a dark room, and rock back & forth while hugging my knees.
    but... in a _good_ way

  5. Omair Sheikh

    Best song on the album probably

  6. jpusar

    This song is essential listening for me. Keeps me focused on the task at hand. Indecision kills all dreams only leading to regret, pain, and sorrow. Strategize, pick your path, and stick to it for as long as you can.

  7. Sarah Timi

    Dead End Kings is one of Katatonia's best albums ever!

  8. swifft

    Probably the best metal album ever made. Every song is great, but this is one of the very special ones.

    κατατονικος αναθεματιστης

    The great cold distance and Viva emptiness are better :3 I love every katatonia album the same but those two are my favourite

  9. Druids and Horses

    I just spent half an hour looking up the cultural significance of Linden Trees because of one line in this song. That's why I love this music.

  10. Blank Profile

    Poets of the Fall - Carnival of Rust anyone?

  11. volkan yasemin

    ambışıns feeeeeyt

    Rümeysa Sert

    O mon dieu

  12. Mihai Dumitras

    Beautiful song!! Only Katatonia can give us such sweet sadness...

  13. Andrés David

    Hear my thin voice
    Hear my words fall down
    See my ambitions fade out
    Had so much better times

    At night
    Walking on the tracks
    Change my perspective
    Idle hands
    With wounds and cracks
    Still
    Ineffective
    But past the veil
    The memories of things
    Still so in love with you

    So dense this strife
    Kick the life
    I feel this weight upon my heart

    Indecision
    Sow the seed
    Aspiration is never within reach
    At night there is no other view
    Sing a song for the ones who never made it

    In the ward
    Under yellow lights
    Under linden trees I am
    Transparent
    And led to believe
    That things would change if I go away
    The lowering sky under which we go

    Constant noise
    Behind the overcoming
    I had no choice but to rearrange
    The scar is open
    I am not allowed to understand
    I take it as you're not coming back

  14. Lupus Media

    Still one of the best bands of all time!

  15. David Nuccioni

    The description is perfect =)

  16. Jaffar Naqvi

    vocalist is just amazing

  17. Love Kushwah

    Katatonia is a part of my life now. I'm glad I got introduced to doom metal by them.

  18. Mia Müller

    Katatonia carved in stone for all time.

  19. Tristan Michie

    Beautiful song! Sounds like a subtle combination between my two other favorite songs on this album, Racing Heart and Lethean. I love it!!

  20. jm1072

    \m/ to the messenger.

  21. Ryan F

    Who the fuck actually disliked this??

    Boris Draconian

    People who likes mainstream songs and commercial shit.

  22. G L

    Katatonia "On" ... Truly starting breathing!

  23. Don Perro

    One word for this utterly gorgeous.

    The Hazza

    m8, dats 2

  24. Aaron Gentry

    I really don't know which is better - this Dead End Kings version of this song, or the Sanctitude version

    4ur3n

    +Aaron Gentry the sanctitude

  25. AssChavez

    I love katatonia more than life itself...

    MetalMusicFromAcrossTheWorldYT

    +AssChavez Mutual!

    Sreeram Krishna

    \m/ Can't help wonder who that 1 person is who actually voted 'dislike' for this song!

    ProgForGuitar

    that's the whole point of Katatonia!

  26. Dan

    I'm now debating whether this CD is going to be higher on my favorites list than Tiamat's "A Deeper Kind of Slumber," and I never thought i'd have to debate whether something could top the #1 CD on my list. If you like stuff like this, it's worth a try.

  27. phix95

    @meszugat---AMEN!!!

  28. Pablo E. Schutz

    Beautiful band. I saw Katatonia earlier this year in Sydney. Deep!! ▲

  29. meszugat

    the most mature album made by Katatonia in my opinion. Unspeakable beautiful rainbow kaleidoscope of colours ...in shades of grey. Jonas has a great voice but it's a shame that people only do appreciate his vocal craft and at the same time totally ignoring work done by the rest of the band!!! it's HARD WORK to perform the music in this way! just be aware... !

  30. phix95

    Absolutley. Masters of melancholy (and melodies).

  31. sophie Nystrom

    Still so in love with you ...

  32. IvanAkimovDesign

    I'm assuming you have Swallow the Sun on your ipod then? This talk of beauty and despair...

  33. Hirundo

    great great great song!

  34. stavros Xenias

    same here fav anime :D yea thats why i enjoy metal :D more people are lke me :D i mean when a song is good ITS FUCKING GOOD NO MATTER IF ITS RAP POP CORE ALTERNATIVE

  35. DesghidorA X

    See everyone should be more like you. No need to bash bands because of different taste. And yes, it is from Elfen Lied; one of my favorite animes tbh.

  36. DesghidorA X

    I've always said that Kataonia's music brings about a feeling of sadness. But a sadness that is addicting rather than hazardous. They make despair beautiful.

    Moon A.D

    indeed you are right
    ....... well defined by you also ....

    Johan Reynard Scholtz

    That is not despair your hearing.Despair is empty and hollow.Emotionlessness is a hunger that tear a heart apart and leave nothing in its wake.Katatonia has only opened a suggestion for you.If you feel so strongly about it.Take the key and move your heart with the energy.I have no idea what you mean by taste of music.The discovery of music is the magic that moves one's soul to a purpose in life(etc.)Find the energy and open the worlds that it hide and the endless lives it feeds and portrays.

    Vinnie Charity

    This is the best description of Katatonia's music I've heard so far. They make sadness and despair sound amazing. I love their lyrics...

  37. EDK ReefMeister

    easily my favorite band of all time.
