Album: Deliverance (2002)
  • Floating on mist
    Crept up the caverns of my brain
    Received 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 fast 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's 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
    Locked inside insanity

    It always burns within
    The downward spiral never ends
    When driven into sin
    Your salvation's found in a sinners deed

    The devil guides the way
    Tells me what to say
    Pours himself inside
    And snuffs the final light

    Thrown back at me
    Laughing at me Writer/s: MIKAEL LARS AKERFELDT
