OPETH : APRIL ETHEREAL [1998]

Μια “απριλιάτικη και αιθέρια” πρόταση του sticgar από το άλμπουμ των Σουηδών prog metallers Opeth My Arms, Your Hearse του 1998.
Στοιχειωμένος απόηχος των roaring ‘90s…

An “April and ethereal” proposal from
sticgar. The song is on the 1998 album My Arms, Your Hearse by Swedish prog metallers Opeth.
Haunted echo from the roaring ‘90s…

It was me, peering through the looking-glass
Beyond the embrace of Christ
Like the secret face within the tapestry
Like a bird of prey over the crest
And she was swathed in sorrow
As if born within its mask
Her candlelight snuffed, the icon smiled
Emptiness followed by her wake
I could clasp her in undying love
Within ghostlike rapture the final word was mine
She faced me in awe
It was a token of ebony colour
Embodied in faint vapour
Wandering through April’s fire
Compelled to grasp and to hold the one that was you 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
The rain was waving goodbye
And when the night came the forest folded its branches around me
Something passed by, and I went into a dream
She, laughing and weeping at once: “Take me away”
I don’t know how or why, I’ll never know When
