Lethe – Dark Tranquillity

Lethe,
give me to drink of the fluid
that disintegrates
and lend me the sweet balmond blessing
of forgetfulness, empty and strong

Hold me near, unravel the stars
as I speed through the heavens,
speed through the night
for you are my blade and my rope,
you are my
Lethe

In currents of cobalt
you storm through my heart
to sever, to puncture
the memories that burn
Let sweep through the arteries
is sharp stabs of pain
your talonlike fingers to kill me again

Steal me, invade me and charge me again
for I burn and I shudder,
burn with each movement of

So, cleansed through a floodlight
I appear; reforged and renewed
caressed by the sweet balm and blessing
of forgetfulness, empty and strong
Lethe,
Hold me near, my one friend and guide
as I drown through your fingers,
drown through your love
for you are the life that I hate
