Opeth - The Leper Affinity Lyrics

We entered Winter once again
Naked, freezing from my breath
‘Neath the lid, all limbs tucked away
This coffin is your abode from now and onwards

Your body is mine to avail
Such a tragic sight you are
Slave under my creed
Spurring me with those tears

I am beyond death
Midst a dreaming affinity
Saving strength now, faint whispers
Come erotic communion in its splendour

Fever mirrored ghosts
Night-time consolation, cross the line
Draw murder into art
Sleep inside through days

In the wake of this relief
Shivering, longing for more
Insanity at its peak
Love me to my death

Lost are the days of Spring
You sighed and let me in

Keep the beast inside
Shackled within my hide
Screaming out too late
Losing to my hate

Grew together with your skin
And paced the trails of sin

Your gaze, covered with virgin snow
Rigid features….
It's the shallow deeds who's to blame
Deafening shrieks pierced the night

A step from oblivion
Moving into the dim lights
Hiding within a reverie
It was worth it for the wait alone
