Benighted (8:49)

Cover of Still Life

From Still Life and 5 other releases

Benighted is The third Track on Opeth’s concept album Still Life and it reads like a love letter, basically an unspoken ode to Melinda. The outcast tries to convince her to come with him because he loves her. He tries to convince her to abandon her religion which is like a chain around her neck in his eyes.

Come into this night, here we'll be gone
So far away from our weak and crumbling lives
Come into this night when days are done
Lost and astray, in what's vanished from your eyes
