Opeth

Advent

It was all true
a parlour strode
and the night sets forever
I stray in the quiet cold
and you gird me when I dare to listen.

Elastic meadow
endless arms of sorrow
lips try to form "because"
Trying to adapt to the wilderness
when even foes close their eyes and leave

We are inside the glade
every now and then I wipe the dust aside
to remember

How I drape my face with my bare hands
the same that brought me here.
And you were beyond all help.
The folded message that wept my name

Shadows skulk at my coming.
We survey the slopes
In search for the words to write the missing page
the tainted dogma

Time goes short
as the piper plays his tune.
We are almost there

You are beyond all help
dancing into the void
We are almost there

Play
