Opeth Deliverance


1. Wreath

Falling inside again  

This nightmare always the same  

Still never enough  

Halting at the brink of discovery  

Moving into the darkness  

Leaking inside to cover up  

Dragging me down and under  

Entangled and undone at once  

Old memories  

I'm not in need but wish to know  

What are the tragedies  

The history behind the walls  

Pacing further down  

Familiar children's laughter  

Dissonant and out of time  

And their eyes are dead  

Watching myself in a pool of water  

Wearing the mask of a ghost  

Smeared all across my skin  

Rotten earth and insects  

Endless night  

Always preserving the calm  

Movement behind  

Bleeding animals in a field of fire  

There is no absolution  

Death is but a fairytale  

They are mere visions  

They are afraid of me  

Clear insight  

A smoke is rising nearby  

Dust covering my coat  

Blend together to spell my name  

Pale, covered me with sweat  

There are no words left  

Sole provider of death  

Distorted faith in myself  

Human harvest burning  

Blackest pages turning  

Twisted perception come true  

Captured in dreams connected  

Staring right back  

Spiritual decay - Still seeking  

Frozen in time  

Mourn this departure - All watching  

Calling me back  

Closure to bleak matters - I'm leaving  

End of a search  

Coming of morning  

Calling me back  

Closure to bleak matters - I'm leaving  

End of a search  

Coming of morning - Returning


2. Deliverance

Floating on mist  

crept up the caverns of my brain  

receving no warning  

from nothing to a life code  

walk with me, you'll never leave  

wait to see your spirit free  

tell me how your heart's in need  

as i drown you in the sea  

unwinding snares of distrust  

your wrist in my face grip  

look me in the eye, i'm clear  

this is your time  

face down beneath the waterline  

gazing into the deep  

from love to death  

in a time span of seconds  

oblivious to regret  

pushed into belief  

in liquid cellophane  

gasping for air  

mercy in my eyes  

is the shade of the night  

the piercing sounds you make  

soaring higher, higher now  

and once left in my wake  

your memory is nothing but the scars on me  

all over now  

forgotten why i needed this  

standing down  

disappear into the obscure  

resting days  

waiting for new disease  

biding time  

looked inside insanity  

it always burns within  

the downward spiral never ends  

when driven into sin  

your salvation's found in a sinner's deed  

the devil guides the day  

tells me what to say  

pours himself inside  

and snuffs the final light


thrown back at me


laughing at me


3. A Fair Judgement

Losing sleep, in too deep  

Fading sun, what have I done  

Came so close to what I need most  

Nothing left here  

Cut the ties, uncover disguise  

Left behind all intertwined  

Lost control, moved out of the role now  

Nothing's left here  

Leave it be  

It was meant for me  

Soul sacrifice  

Forgot the advice  

Lost track of time  

In a flurry of smoke  

Waiting anxiety  

For a fair judgement deserved


4. For Absent Friends



5. Master's Apprentices

There is a voice calling for me  

There is a light coming down on me  

There is a doubt that is clearing  

There is a day that is dawning  

There is a wound that is healing  

There is a season waiting for me  

There is a road that is turning  

There is a fire still burning  

A sickness in me  

Constant pace towards the end  

The need is stronger  

This time the need is deeper  

There is a peace I am searching  

There is a freedom I'm depending on  

There is a pain that's never ending  

There is a rain falling only on me  

There is a dream I am living  

There is a life I am dreaming of  

There is a death I'm awaiting  

There is a home I am deserting  

i hold my breath and wait  

only moments remain  

movement for departed hope  

effect for absent friend  

sever the faith from my body  

leave me begging for more  

take what i have and deliver me  

into everlasting sleep  

soothing trance  

colours fade  

and disappear  

ethereal light  

showing me what i can do without  

in a motionless scense  

there is only me  

i take what i can  

controlling you to get ahead  

fading away  

and leaving  

long for sleep  

closer now  

lead the way into death  

every wretched dream  

i have left behind  

every waking hour  

i lie in wait  

sucked inside by will  

gone into the flood  

all my questions unfurled  

as i was put to the test  

once i'm below there's no turning back
