The Greatest Band in the HIstory of Music.....Op e t h **The standard of all music**
Corrected Lyrics - I think these are better: Burden


I, once upon a time
Carried a burden inside
I sung a last goodbye
A broken rhyme I had underlined
There's an ocean of sorrow in you

A sorrow in me

I saw a movement in their eyes
They said I no longer knew the way
I had given up the ghost
A passive mind submit to fear
And the wait for redemption at hand

Waiting to fail

Failing again

If death should take me now
Count my mistakes and let me through
Whisper in my ear
You've taken more tha
Another genius masterpiece by Mikael Akerfeldt. These lyrics are wrong on here though.
Two years later... this song is still amazing.
A sensational band... playing in NYC 9/21/11
Who knew that someone could sing as well as they do the death metal grunt. Opeth is changing their style, I hear the new album is all clear voiced, this is the first album I got by Opeth and I'm enjoying it as much as my Nightwish and Arch Enemy
Mind-blowing Opeth is mind-blowing .
Not what I'm use to hearing by Opeth. A pleasant surprise...
LOVE THIS GROUP
Love Opeth.
Forever.
Amazing...
No words to describe this song. I just love Opeth.
i heard that when he recorded the solo in the studio, someone stood behind him and detuned the guitar AS he was playing. all i got to say is WHAAAAAT? truly truly incredible song by an incredible band. this song is like a classic rock song done in a modern way. as good as any floyd or anyone else for that matter. i want to listen to this song until my ears bleed.
one part reminds me of Helloween.
and the detuning... how was that done?

One of the best songs I've ever heard!
ditto! i've seen them live twice...Orga s m i c !
