  • Heppek from CologneI think the song describes the plot of the 1957 movie "The seventh seal"
  • Rock Lee from Hidden Leaves Village, JapanDon't get me wrong, it is a good song, though if you think about it the song is kind of depressing.
  • Rock Lee from Hidden Leaves Village, JapanGood song but it can kind of get you depressed when you hear it- "I know what I want, I'll say what I want, and no one can take it away" kind of sticks out in your mind.
