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 it’s peak

Love me to my death

Lost are days of Spring

You sighted 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 is 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
