Derelict Herds

Композиция Derelict Herds из альбома Opeth — Watershed

Музыка: Микаэль Окерфельдт, Пер Виберг
Стихи: Микаэль Окерфельдт

Someone died for looking too far
While I was asleep in my house
A child was killed - I heard it from a friend
A war raged in a distant land and caused me to linger on a piece of test

Someone died
Not here, never here

Соло [1:49-2:13]: Микаэль Окерфельдт

There is a fever
There is a failure
Are you a believer?
But someone lied to you

You hold it closer to your chest
There was a meaning for this test
But you forgot and it’s gone now
You were controlled somehow

There was a mean time
An invitation of sorts
I remember life I
I was sick with sorrow

I’d fallen asleep
And dreamt of my sins here
It was your turn
Adamant smiled and said Thank you…

There was a sickness right in the family
While I shuttered in the cold
Woman hanged for her sins while I cribbed my eye
An old man drowned in this life herd as I made amends with my fathers

Someone died
Not here, never here
