Opeth - Burden

Categories: [english], [music]

I rarely seek poetry in songs, but I do find it often in Opeth. Their “Burden” is one of my all time favorite songs. I guess, I was never able to separate emotions from poetry, and I’ve always had a weak spot for melancholy…

If death should take me now
Count my mistakes and let me through
Whisper in my ear
You’ve taken more than we’ve received
And the ocean of sorrow is you
