Opeth - Wreath Lyrics




Falling inside again
This nightmare always the same
Still never enough
Halting at the brink of discovery
Moving into the darkness
Leaking inside to cover up
Dragging me down and under
Entangled and undone at once
Old memories
I'm not in need but wish to know
What are the tragedies
The history behind the walls
Pacing further down
Familiar children's laughter
Dissonant and out of time
And their eyes are dead
Watching myself in a pool of water
Wearing the mask of a ghost
Smeared all across my skin
Rotten earth and insects
Endless night
Always preserving the calm
Movement behind
Bleeding animals in a field of fire
There is no absolution
Death is but a fairytale
They are mere visions
They are afraid of me
Clear insight
A smoke is rising nearby
Dust covering my coat
Blend together to spell my name
Pale, covered me with sweat
There are no words left
Sole provider of death
Distorted faith in myself
Human harvest burning
Blackest pages turning
Twisted perception come true
Captured in dreams connected
Staring right back
Spiritual decay - Still seeking
Frozen in time
Mourn this departure - All watching
Calling me back
Closure to bleak matters - I'm leaving
End of a search
Coming of morning
Calling me back
Closure to bleak matters - I'm leaving
End of a search
Coming of morning - Returning

Opeth Wreath Comments
  1. Chris O'Neill

    Opeth = Epic

  2. Jeff Broderick

    6:11 one of the best riffs ever

  3. Edward Lacorte

    I WOULD Dare say... This Might be OPETH'S HEAVIEST SONG EVER! It is Magnificent!!!!

  4. Fly Johnson

    No metal band from 99-05 could touch this line up

  5. Chris M

    Somehow overlook this album but just realized it is one of my favorite Opeth albums

  6. Jose Roberto RV

    2:45 oscuridad y magia a la vez.

  7. Madd Mike

    I miss Mikeal Akerfeldt heavy vocals in Opeth and Bloodbath :(

    B's AutoSpa

    He's 45 and been doing it 30 years, the body can only take so much. If you want some kick ass death metal check out Gorguts live Brutal assault. Luc Lemay has similar vocals and is a beast.

    Madd Mike

    God bless

  8. Arhaan Chettri

    Extremely underrated and my favourite off the album. The riffs are so omnious and growls are coming straight from the throat of the devil.

    Jose Roberto RV

    👏👏👏👍🏻

  9. Andreo Suro

    картина для альбома должна сопровождать весь альбом, арт эмоции... мать иво произведение леонардо да винчи должно быть, на века... иначе даже если музыка заебись получается провал в восприятии...

  10. Andreo Suro

    заебись, но реально думаю что наальбомах дум метла блэк метала и тп нужно делать реально крутую артовую херь - кхудожественную картину и нельзя размещать фотки исполнителей и тп, чтобы не портить восприятие произведения... самый охуенный арт по моему в nephelim grove, релально кто то заморочился с сотонинским зен дао...

  11. Edson Arath

    God, this is one of my fav tracks by Opeth so far

  12. Mickey Morelos

    Happy 17th birthday Deliverance!!!

  13. Ιωαννης Αθανασοπουλος

    Morbid angel influence

  14. Christopher Norris

    2nd Opeth track I ever heard. 9:00 is so evocative.

  15. Corax

    I discovered this album a few weeks ago. I recently stopped smoking weed, will not do it for a few months, but I cannot wait to hear this awesome stuff once I am high again because its as psychedelic as it is heavy. Especially wreath sends me on a trip like no other song, the guitars, the doom like environment... simply amazing. Its like being lost in a dark forest and discovering your darkest fears and learning to deal with them in order to survive

    Madd Mike

    Corax if you enjoy a good relaxing chill vibe. I suggest you listen to the whole “Damnation” album. To me personally is they best soft album they have.

    Corax

    @Madd Mike Thank you very much, but at this point I do know every album :D Damnation is great. I love "Closure" very much

  16. clouded

    boy do i miss martin lopez

  17. Ben Mac

    Nothing gets more opeth than this song..
    I've felt empowered and much despair...
    A bad and a happy sound all in one...
    Fuck I miss the old opeth..

  18. Frost Ov Black Throne

  19. Eggers Eggers

    Most underrated Opeth song. Best orchestrated album of that year.

  20. Prateek P

    Oh mikael you riffin genius

  21. Nathan DeWalt

  24. Kevin Goeltz

    My guitar teacher and I once got into a debate about whether or not the opening riff in the song is in 12/8 or 4/4 triplets. I'd love to hear thoughts on this.

    Kevin Goeltz

    @Filip Managania I'm a person who just sees it like... if you're going to be machine a measure of 12 8th notes, just call it 12/8.

    Filip Managania

    @Kevin Goeltz And that's a healthy view, imo when the triplets are an addision to the regular pace, than call it 4/4 triplets

    Kevin Goeltz

    @Filip Managania Interesting.

    Nicholas Sinnett

    If it moved from triplet feel to normal 4/4 at some point, I'd say 4/4 triplets. But the pulse stays 12/8 or 6/4ish at the same tempo for eight minutes or so, so I'd go with 12/8. Really just two different ways of saying the same thing though.

    Kevin Goeltz

    @Nicholas Sinnett Yeah, you're probably right.

  25. W-James

    Killer riffs, grovy melodies, kick ass solo, intense growls and dark lyrics. What's not to like?

  26. Chin chin

    How do I start likeing the growls?

    B e

    Read the lyrics then you can start hearing the words from the growls

    Ⰲⰵⱍⱀⰰ Ⰿⰰⰽⰵⰴⱁⱀⰻⱑ

    @B e always works for me too

    Chin chin

    @B e got it

    Arhaan Chettri

    Keep your focus on the instrumentation -- guitar riffs, solos, and drumming. Growls are an acquired taste, it'll stop bothering you once you learn to immerse yourself into the music being played. Also, keep exploring various bands playing similar sort of music.

    Prateek P

    Think of growling like its vocal distortion.

  27. Enigma of the Absolute

    Opening riff is reminiscent of Morbid Angel, specifically Fall from Grace.

  28. arwiviv

    Me as a 29 year old in 1999...."yeah, let me give it a few spins being that I spent 20 bucks on this cd.... im not a death metal guy but this is supposedly one of the top albums of the year."


    Within 4 months I have every Opeth CD ever made.

    theMetal973

    This album didn't come out in 1999, it came out in 2002. Just sayin'.

    Anish Poddar

    @theMetal973 Well, he didn't specifically say that the CD he played was Deliverance. Could have been Still Life.

  29. Heir Apparent

    what a masterpiece..

  30. Merschavonia

    I never realized how cursed the album art was until now...

    Haxprocess

    It's funny cuz i was never able to understand how it relates to the damnation album art. Now i realize theyre literally just meant to be the exact opposite of eachother.

    Mat 444

    the face in the mirror...

    Christopher Norris

    The face in the mirror is the same figure you see on Damnation...?

  31. Scream Bloody Gore

    1:42 - 5:07 holy shit

  32. Bart Varium

    *Drums intro*
    "OAH"

    BrigandOfBagnolo

    That's Death Metal for ya

    Christopher Norris

    10:34
    ooooOOOOOA#[email protected]!(!%

    Danjoker

    @Christopher Norris love that shit!!

  33. PartVIII

    Now this is the Opeth I remember and love lml

  34. Rto Rto

    Heavy, but also groovy and hypnotic. Cheers to all who made thier way here

    deminybs

    GROOVY BABY

  35. Lalo10

    This just sounds like Bloodbath lol, when Akerfeldt used to do awesome growls

    nick squires

    It does but I dig the more opethy sound

    Enigma of the Absolute

    I would say this is more influenced by Morbid Angel’s Blessed are the Sick (Michael is a massive fan of MA). The opening riff reminds me of ‘Fall from Grace’.

  36. Krazy Kenny

    Lyrics :

    Confront me unholy ones
    Bastard saints scorn of the earth
    I summon thee now poison me
    Death under will burn in my soul
    Exalt me enemies of the lamb
    Intrude, we are of one
    Under will, I walk the path of sin
    With your spells I die again
    Raise me from mortal
    My will be your will
    My words speak your words
    Your pains raise me to bliss
    What of this anger now
    Received to lance your enemy
    I feel the energy
    The poison moves in me
    I spill blood
    Scorn of the earth, I witness
    In rapture I'm born again
    Scorn of the light, I bear scorn
    In rapture I'm reborn

    mark palavos3

    Morbid Angel Rapture

    Death By Design Graphics

    Bred from the bowels, sheep one and all.
    Bound by the dorctrine of lies.
    Too fucked human shit, I shout blasphemy.
    I shall make my way, through to the promised land.

    Yeah we all know Morbid Angel buddy.

  37. spore bubu

    Might not be the best opeth album but learning Deliverance riffs is way funner then learning riffs for any other album

    Fabio Dewitt

    To me is right there with Blackwater Park, Still Life, Ghost Reveries and My arms, Your Hearse.

    1nf3rnal D3str0y3r

    Not the best??is like in the top 5 of best opeth albums

    The Jangle Sheep

    1nf3rnal D3str0y3r Still Life > BWP > MAYH > Ghost Reveries > Watershed > Damnation > Deliverance

  38. Jorrit van Eeten

    5:06 - 5:40 (brutal solo)

    MetalForTheMasses

    Hahahaha, nah.

    Merschavonia

    Still tasty though :)

    Edi Ademi

    Proof that Peter wrote some amazing solos when he was in opeth, but it seems Mikael disagrees..

    Corax

    I am currently practising that solo on guitar and just wanted to inform you that I always use your comment to skip to that part so thank you for that!

  39. Micah McClung

    the composition of this song seems like an ancient alchemical chant

    Tyler Higginbotham

    If you know any lemme know

  40. Pepe Sells but Who's Buying?

    This song is so heavy the middle portion lulls me to sleep. ;)

    Intraterrestrial

    i used to go to sleep listening to Catch 33 from the 'shuggah back in my college days... my eyelids really enjoyed that album :)

  41. Jacob Johnson

    is it just me or is that opening drum fill like, rrreally reminiscent of the one on Kreator's 'Pleasure to Kill' (1986)?

    Lorin Zaharia

    Jacob Johnson Yea... Or Primitive Ways by Death

  42. Jenahnanah

    Those bongos remind me of Soen 😃🖤👍🏻

    Johnathan Thorne

    ax is the drummer of soen they also have the bass player from tool

    Invisus Machina

    @Johnathan Thorne No. Martin Lopez is Soen's drummer...Also Justin Chancellor has never been on Soen...

    Johnathan Thorne
