    Ghost of Mother
    Lingering death
    Ghost on Mother's bed
    Black strands on the pillow
    Contour of her health
    Twisted face upon the head

    Ghost of perdition
    Stuck in her chest
    A warning no one read
    Tragic friendship
    Called inside the fog
    Pouring venom brew deceiving

    Devil cracked the earthly shell
    Foretold she was the one
    Blew hope into the room and said:
    "You have to live before you die young"

    Holding her down
    Channeling darkness
    Hemlock for the Gods
    Fading resistance
    Draining the weakness
    Penetrating inner light

    Road into the dark unaware
    Winding ever higher

    Darkness by her side
    Spoke and passed her by
    Dedicated hunter
    Waits to pull us under
    Rose up to it's call
    In his arms she'd fall
    Mother light received
    And a faithfull servant's free

    In time the hissing of her sanity
    Faded out her voice and soiled her name
    And like marked pages in a diary
    Everything seemed clean that is unstained
    The incoherent talk of ordinary days
    Why would we really need to live?
    Decide what is clear and what's within a haze
    What you should take and what to give

    Ghost of perdition
    A saint's premotion's unclear
    Keeper of holy hordes
    Keeper of holy whores

    To see a beloved son
    In despair of what's to come

    If one cut the source of the flow
    And everything would change
    Would conviction fall
    In the shadow of the righteous
    The phantasm of your mind
    Might be calling you to go
    Defying the forgotten morals
    Where the victim is the prey

    Must be one of my favourite opeth songs. Just love the sing along melody bit. I thought that it was just a catchy thing and i might grow out of it,but that never seems to happen.

    I think even though theyre one of my favourite bands (i LOVE them) and very talented, theyre somewhat overrated. somewhat like tool is. :think:

    I used to think the same till Damnnation....and when they signed Roadrunner. Infact I was expecting Ghost Reveries to be more of a Damnation 2....but they proved me wrong.

    I dont think they are overrated, but they've become some sort of a fashion statement now. I mean, there were hardly any people who knew them, forget 'liked' them till last year. But somewhere in the middle of last year, when news of their new album broke out, everyone suddenly started liking them. Its annoying really, I see people wearing these opeth t-shirts, but have no clue about say songs on still life or my arms your hearse. Right now, its 'cool' to like them, so you have all these mallcore kids liking them. Lets see how long that'll last. Same with Tool id say. But tool's better off here atleast, everyone hates them, cant stand Maynards voice:p:

    ^^^^^Haha...that happens with many bands when it comes to this genre. but its a phase which eventually fades out--an album gains popularity....posers lov the band----listen to earlier stuff....and slowly get bored.

    btw....did u say Opeth we get those in India??

    Lavina as usual you instigate others and when they shout back, you report that as a bad post.

    Haan least Delhi mein milta hai for Palika Bazaar.
    For Opeth fans, btw..please check out Agalloch also. Same folk/metal mix..but more depressing and not as heavy.

    @UJSen: Its her opinion. I don't think it's the greatest poetry I've read in my life either.
    I can't play Yngwie Malmsteen solos either..but that doesn't mean I have to like all of them:)
