Opeth – Blackwater Park lyrics

Of the tragedies in man
Lurking in the core of us all
The last dying call for the everlost
Lepers coiled neath the trees
Brief encounters, bleeding pain

Dying men in bewildered soliloquys
Perversions bloom round the bend
Seekers, lost in their quest
Ghosts of friends frolic

Under the waning moon
Wielding his instruments
It is the year of death
Touching us with ease
Stealth sovereign reaper
Infecting the roots in an instant
Burning crop of disease

I am just a spectator
An advocate documenting the loss
Fluttering with conceit
Still far from the knell
This doesn't concern me yet

Point fingers at the details
Taunting their bereavement
Mod round the dead
Caight in unbridled suspense
Probing vomits for more
We have all lost it now

Born the travesty of man
Catching the flakes of dismay
Regular pulse midst pandemonium
Parched with thirst for the wicked
You're plucked to the mass

Sick liaisons raised this monumental mark
The sun sets forever over Blackwater park
