    This is the highly more constructive version of a recently posted thread.


    From: Moonlapse vertigo

    Thought I could not leave this place
    On this imminent day
    As I've reached the final dawn
    To what's gone astray
    What would they care if I did stay
    No-one would know
    What would they care if I did stay
    No-one should know.


    From: Face of melinda

    Endlessly gazing in nocturnal prime
    She spoke of her vices and broke the rhyme
    But baffled herself with the final line
    My promise is made but my heart is thine


    From: The drapery falls

    Please remedy my confusion
    And thrust me back to the day
    The silence of your seclusion
    Brings night into all you say
    Pull me down again
    And guide me into pain
    I'm counting nocturnal hours
    Drowned visions in haunted sleep
    Faint flickering of your powers
    Leaks out to show what you keep



    that's all for now.

    now post, please.

    Under the Weeping Moon:

    I am the watcher in the skies
    Nor the emeralds know my mark
    Glisten to mark their presence
    Set the enigma ablaze
    Searching...
    Finding...

    POWERFULL!

    Den Ständiga resan:

    Jag måste resa igen och leta efter tröst
    Jag måste leta igen efter ömhetens röst
    Jag måste resa igen till nästa höst
    Den ständiga resan till nästa höst

    You sleep in the light
    Yet the night and the silent water
    Still so dark

    From Harlequin Forest:

    Nocturnally helpless and weak in the light
    Depending on a prayer
    Pacing deserted roads to find
    a seed of hope

    From Harvest:

    Into the orchard i walk peering way past the gate
    Wilted scenes for us who couldn't wait
    Drained by the coldest caress, stalking shadows ahead
    Halo of death, all i see is departure
    Mourner's lament but it's me who's the martyr

    From Blackrose Immortal:

    Over troubled waters memories soar
    Endlessly, searching night and day
    The moonlight caresses a lonely hill
    With the calmness of a whisper

    You are in a forest unknown
    The secret orchard
    And your voice is vast and achromatic
    But still so precious

    I finally found you, my personal slaughter
    As an appetizer,I let you taste my daughter
    Call me sick but this is what I need
    My only purpose here is for you to feed

    Good death metal lines must have many 'r' s in them.
    such as "Over troubled waters, memories soar" which is very nice to sing along.

    "It was all true, a parlour strode and the night sets forever"
    "We are almost there"

    "arrival, i saw her shadow standing in the darkness, awaiting me like the night awaits the day"
    Have to say that this is the best Opeth line. "awaiting me like the night awaits the day", i'm not completely sure what it means, but its dramatic like hell. Brilliant.

    "darkness encloses..."
    another killer part.

    "the memories that now rests in this forest"
    "hidden inside the golden shrine"
    shrine is a friggin violent word.

    Anywho...

    Endless night
    Always preserving the calm
    Movement behind
    Bleeding animals in a field of fire
    There is no absolution
    Death is but a fairy tale
    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


    Partially awesome just because the song is awesome and they are growled quite well, but lyrically alone its still sufficiently dark.

    Yeah but it's Godhead's Lament. (Edit: cool, it's been said)
    However, 'Kept warm by the light of the lantern' always gets me. Reminds me of Tenchu, but in a kind and nurturing way.


    My favourite would probably be..

    It is getting dark again
    Dusk shuffle across the field
    The evening trees moan,
    as if they knew
    At night I always dream of you

    Black Rose Immortal:

    Eyes attach to your mute portrait
    We spoke only through thoughts
    Together we gazed, awaited
    Hours brought thirst and the rising sun


    April Ethereal:

    I will endure, hide away
    I would outrun the scythe, glaring with failure
    It is a mere destiny I thought, a threshold I had crossed before


    When:

    When can I take you from this place?
    When is the word but a sigh?
    When is death our lone beholder?
    When do we walk the final steps?
    When can we scream instead of whisper?
    When is the new beginning,
    the end of this sad madrigal

    From The Night and the Silent Water:

    Am I like them?
    Those who mourn and turn away
    Those who would give anything
    To see you again
    If only for another second

    From Black Rose Immortal:

    Eyes attach to your mute portrait
    We spoke only through thoughts
    Together we gazed, awaited
    Hours brought thirst and the rising sun

    Sunbirds leave their dark recesses
    Shadows glide the archways

    Do not turn your face towards me
    Confronting me with my loneliness
    You are in a forest unknown
    The secret orchard
    And your voice is vast and achromatic
    But still so precious

    From The Drapery Falls:

    Please remedy my confusion
    And thrust me back to the day
    The silence of your seclusion
    Brings night into all you say

    Demon of the Fall

    Run away, run away.
    Just one second, and I was left with nothing.
    Her fragrance still pulsating through damp air.
    That day came to an end

    April Etehreal

    It is a mere destiny I thought, a threshold I had crossed before.
    The rain was waving goodbye, and when the night came
    the forest folded its branches around me

    Dirge for November

    Lost, here is nowhere
    Searching home still
    Turning past me, all are gone
    Time is now
    The omen showed, took me away
    Preparations are done, this can't last
    The mere reflection brought disgust
    No ordeal to conquer, this firm slit
    It sheds upon the floor, dripping into a pool
    Grant me sleep, take me under
    Like the wings of a dove, folding around
    I fade into this tender care

    :worship:

    there are much more i think, but these just came up to my mind

    White cluster

    This is forgiveness, so I know
    Once I repent I seal the lid
    I slither for you and I'm dying
    I find trust in hate


    and, yes, my bad....hehehe, it was "godhead's lament"....That's why I couldn't sing it when recalling "Moonlapse vertigo"

    I hate the line "I find trust in hate", I mean, it sounds very good, but it's just the way he sings it.
