Opeth - Windowpane Lyrics




Blank face in the windowpane
Made clear in seconds of light
Disappears and returns again
Counting hours, searching the night

Might be waiting for someone
Might be there for us to see
Might be in need of talking
Might be staring directly at me

Inside plays a lullaby
Slurred voice over children cries
On the inside

Haunting loneliness in the eye
Skin covering a secret scar
His hand is waving a goodbye
There's no response or action returned

There is deep prejudice in me
Outshines all reason inside
Given dreams all ridden with pain
And projected unto the last

Opeth Windowpane Comments
  1. Bryan Jordan

    I cant seem to find another Opeth song I like, but this is in my top songs of all time if I were to make a list. Anyone got any other suggestions by these guys?

  2. Jamal martin

    My fav.era of Opeth music, the two Martins and Lindgren.....breathtaking

  3. GetToThaChoppa

    Orgasmic solo!

  4. Peter Halmo

    Bittersweet masterpiece

  5. Daniel Banuelos

    I HONESTLY DON'T KNOW HOW ANYONE CAN LISTEN TO THIS

    Brent Hinds

    thats okay, not your taste i guess...

    Daniel Banuelos

    @Brent Hinds Lol I'm joking. It's Opeth. Who doesn't love them?

  6. Itachi Uchiha

    Counting hours searching the night...

  7. SuperSalt Lee

    Where is 2:12 from? Sounds familiar

  8. Jose Perez

    I'm gonna take a nap, this video makes me sleep.

  9. The Turkısh Soldier

    Greetings from turkey 🇹🇷

    The Turkısh Soldier

    Mert Must Die as

  10. Just Another Cuber

    4:36 makes me cry every single time

  11. Yeamin Malik

    That solo and keyboard stuff <3

  12. Anupam Alok

    I wish i can listen and feel this song again for the first time

  13. Alasdair Perry

    4:36 That solo is just absolutely gorgeous. That's how I feel guitar solos should be - it's a deviation from the main riffs but staying faithful to the tune, it's not just a minute of noise that sounds like a cat being strangled that comes completely out of nowhere and is just wedged into the tune

  14. Ulises Blackbird

    wtf people saying this is brutal, this is the most boring shit i've heard

    Mert Must Die

    İts a joke duh

    -Uɴᴅᴇᴀᴅ Cʜᴀɴɴᴇʟ-

    if this is boring to you, you have no taste in music.

  15. Gabriele Di Lazzaro

    As a drummer, I can definitely say that the snare ghost notes absolutely kill me

  16. Anthony Cortez

    Thanks for keeping me depressed guys :) really appreciate it

  17. Marquitos BR88

    THE BEST SONG OF ALL TIME

    Prophet Master

    Keep listening to their other songs

  18. Ambassador to the Netherworld

    Don't know if anyone has ever read Other Voices, Other Rooms but this song not only recreates the atmosphere of it to the point of having a spooky synergy(especially relating to the"queer lady"who is viewed through an attic window by a delirious protagonist)

  19. Lasher Squirrel Slayer

    Martin was a master on the drums...this line up was awesome.

  20. Alan Masilla John

    T'Challa

  21. יוסף בן-דוד

    Thanks to this song I recognized this amazing band

  22. Sanjeev Sarkar

    I play the Blackwater Park album starting with bleak whenever I start working on critical cases (work) ! I <3 Opeth

  23. Eric Lee

    I never understood the appeal for this band

    Rayene Boussetta

    It's a very unique band

    Gray Bull

    This is their softest prog rock album (it's beautiful but not the best representation of the band's other work), what makes them unique is how they fused Death Metal with Progressive Rock/Metal and Jazz.

    And the appeal comes from Mikael's amazing songwriting, remove all the gimmicks and the songs would still work, for example; if an Opeth song was performed on a single piano, or a string quartet, or a classical nylon guitar, or 9 cellos (search on YouTube "Harvest for 9 cellos") it would still sound amazing and musically complex.

  24. Vayanak Maut

    this song reminds me of time when i died!

    akhil

    Yeah totally lol

  25. Alejandro Ortega

    5:58 <3

  26. David Maund

    https://youtu.be/qEaf9LqIUZQ?t=411 there's no response erection returned

  27. Fucknuts

    A hard rock/heavy metal fan my entire life, I can't stand that guttural shit that is death metal so bands that deliver that don't get my attention. I heard a super heavy Opeth song with melodic lyrics, cant remember which one at the moment, but it intrigued me so I then found this song and I'm completwly blown away.

    Rayene Boussetta

    Wtf are "melodic lyrics"??

    Fucknuts

    @Rayene Boussetta - It's the words and sounds that your dirty whore mother makes when you are screwing her in the ass every night.

    -Uɴᴅᴇᴀᴅ Cʜᴀɴɴᴇʟ-

    @Fucknuts maybe it was Harlequin forest.

  28. Mindundi Cabreao

    ¡Obra maestra!

  29. Ash

    Steven Wilson and opeth... What an unlikely combination, but damn... How well it worked out..

  30. Struka Peluka

    at 3:47 shit gets real

  31. feleque

    THAT BREAK BRUH....

  32. Oz Schultz

    Opeth music touches my feelings.

  33. Jorge Leitner

    Definately one of my favorite Opeth songs. Hell, this entire album is phenomenal.

  34. xbeast666

    Musianship at it's finest

    Rayene Boussetta

    Spelling NOT at its finest

    xbeast666

  35. Ruckus Malone

    Wow what an awesome slow song by these guys. Still raw yet smooth and flowing. I'm literally impressed.

  39. nick squires

    Nothing like some diet opeth

  40. blyguy

    i didn't realize modern bands still use the Mellotron, awesome!

  41. vishal gaur

    Whenever I listen to this album the scenes from Texhnolyze (anime) rotates in my head, that same feel of dystopia and damnation.

  42. Ymiraku

    absolutely amazing musicianship

  43. Alek

    4:36 changed my life. Thank you opeth.

  44. Robert Fimbres

    Had the best acid trip of my life to this album

  48. Hugo Kairos

    Call me crazy but the part at 4:45 remember me a lot of RHCP's Porcelain, same chords I think

  49. Raúl Muñoz

    Am I the only one hearing Take 5 here? :O

  50. Lucas H. Araújo

    música q eu amo

  51. Clemente Soto

    these guys are awesome for sure.

  52. Travis Beyer

    Hey I got an idea...If you don't like the direction Opeth is heading may I suggest you STFU make an album of the kind of music your narrow mind THINKS Opeth owes you and we will collectively rip it to shreads because it sucks.

  53. Sol

    wish the vinyl wasn't 238 dollars lol

    Skorpey

    Holy shit

  54. Little Boy키작은상준

    Just tell me why is it brutal ?? Its not at all.

    Toornap Tarraa

    They're just joking, and that flew over your head.

    -Uɴᴅᴇᴀᴅ Cʜᴀɴɴᴇʟ-

    bruh, opeth has played basically all subgenres of rock & metal

  55. Dominik Seemüller

    Awesome! Especially the first 30 seconds feel like a fusion jazz band.

  56. Shouvik Roy

  61. Johnny Al-Zehhawi

    I put this song on a loop and I'm listening to it for two years without getting bored \m/

  62. street art crazy

    #2018 🔥🔥

  63. Daniel Newhouse

    Damnation is a place where the people know one thing, "not."

  64. Mahmoud Esmail

    Notice : If you think Opeth music style just Death Metal so you are wrong their music mix [ Death Metal And progressive rock] For that reason they are unique.

  65. Alix Staley

    Love the guitar near the middle of the song awesome Visuals

  66. Karen Redd

    Everything on that cd is absolutely awesome but this is my favorite. I had never heard of them till I heard this song. Some of their other stuff I wasn’t that impressed with but I love this one.

  67. airforceaggie

    An absolute masterpiece

  68. megadezzies cat cat

    Can listen to song over and over and over and over again.😍

  69. Fabian V.

    Awesome drummer!
    Hail Opeth and cheers from San Francisco!

  70. VLADBOB 007

    This album is brutally gentle, and slowly it destroys you in the process.

  71. biesmusik

    this is good stuff

  72. gio

    If you play this album in reverse you'll get the most brutal album opeth has ever concieved. It even puts pornogrind bands to shame.

  73. Desdenova

    without Opeth, Porcupine Tree might not have been

  74. Sidorovich Fuchutmodzule

    I would say that this is soundtrack for my life but neither should i flatter my life nor should i disgrace this song

    best of best

    Memetzsche same

    shay farley

    Shit dude that's deep. But well said .

  75. Isaac Leiva

    I remember when this was around 300k I swear half of these views are mine I listen to it everyday ❤️❤️

  76. voidwarlock03

    I've been a fan of opeth since I bought watershed, and I've heard the newer albums but am slow getting to their earlier stuff. First time listening to this, and I already have so many emotions welling up inside

    Chris Read

    If you like Watershed you need Ghost reveries and Blackwater Park

  77. Nicolas Silva

    this album beats the shit out of ghost reveries, and i love death metal

  78. Joshua Thompson

    1:18 trying to find out what he is playing

  79. bhaskar phukan

    Timless masterpiece

  80. WL Siam

    4:36
    A little piece of heaven

    best of best

    must have stabbed her fifty fcking times

  81. Soroosh Mhs

    Please watch my cover of the song's 2nd guitar solo at https://youtu.be/02WGMQ9jG6E
    Thanks in advance :)

  82. Kenia Casas

    Chingón!!

  83. David Maund

    THERE'S NO RESPONSE ERECTION RETURNED

  84. Karen Redd

    I’m from the great old blessed hippie days with the ONLY great music there will ever ever be, and I have very few bands that I like since then and this is definitely one of them. I love every single thing on Damnation, tho some of their other music I wasn’t to crazy about. Alice In Chains I LOVE every single thing they’ve ever done

    Rotten Apple

    Opeth's cover of Would is really good. Btw if you're an AIC fan, give Jerry Cantrell's solo albums a listen. Boggy Depot and Degradation Trip vol 1 and 2 are great (if you haven't already heard them.)

    Kang Longshankz

    die hippie die

  85. Pudgeotto

    Criminally underrated.

  86. Kvothe The Kingkiller

    2:47 is one of my favourite Opeth moments, so haunting and beautiful <3

  87. Lynnda Davis

    ILOOOOVEEITT

  88. Daniel

    Martin Lopez's drumwork on this album is definitely among the finest in Opeth's discography!

  89. Oh shah

    let me tell you all
    That this is the best song of opeth.

  90. Jim Germany

    Your full album playlist is in the wrong order.

  92. Whytecrowe

    What a guitar!

  93. Pompolin

    I was searching for Mild High Club version, found this. Didn't disappoint...

  94. Ben S.

    I had to comment on this song. I remember the first time I heard it, it was on a juggling video back when I was trying to get into juggling. Found the actual song and listened to it, jaw dropped, for the entirety of the song. Probably played it around 10 times that day. It's been almost a year, this is still one of my favorite songs. It is absolutely beautiful. The guitar, the orchestra, the voices, and of course Akerfeldt. His voice is like an angel. The whole album is really well done, I like almost all the songs off of it, which is rare for me. Not a fan of Opeth's other stuff except for Harvest and Burden and stuff like that. Well done Opeth.

  95. Puspa Pradhan

    This song is a lulluby.

  96. gabbribeiro1

    This album was my playlist for reading Neil Gaiman's Sandman... its like finding some of the chapters of the comicbook turned into music. In particular when I listen to "Death wispered a lullaby"... the title and the reference to the shifting sands... it gives me the chills down my spine... Awesome music!!

  97. Katina Reyes

    3:37 😍

  98. Omar Soliman

    This album is definitely influenced by "Camel"
