    Dedicated hunger
    Waits to pull us under

    yeah sounds pretty good man, but this line "They open to the room
    Said you have to live before you die young" to me really sounds more like "They open to the rumoursyou have to live before you die young" its hard to tell

    ^ yeah it might be "They open to the rumors/That you have to live before you die young"
    seems to make a little more sense.

    Ghost of perdition
    Save reminitions are clear (?)

    sounds to me like:
    'Ghost of perdition
    Same remintions are clear'

    even that may not be correct tho becuase according to merriam-webster online (www.m-w.com) reminitions or any form of it is not a word

    They open to the room AS IF you had to live before you die young

    Sounds much more coherent to me

    Well... considering their previous albums, they seem to work on the so bad it must work theory.

    OpethGuitarist, I agree with you.

    "as if you have to live before you die young" ...but also Im in doubt...It could be "They said you have to live before you die young". Aside from that line, "They open..." ...I dont get any "they".

    I think that is "why you want the enemy to live" not the melody.. :)

    I think Opeth are trying to reach a bigger audience.... The only time they've ever had this much clean vocalising in a heavy song..... well they never have, mua haa... :ill:

    Devil cracked the earthly shell
    Foretold she was the one
    They opened to the room
    And said you have to leave before you die hung

    that's my take at it

    ^ to bad its also wrong. i really don't think mikael would go back to the orchid days of shit grammar with the lines "fortold she was the one - they opened to the room"

    that makes no sense to me.
