Opeth

The Wilde Flowers

Verse 1

Sun hangs high, I turn away
Failure underground
Heart is sick and fever is high
Waiting for a sound
 
Like a trail of insects to me
I watch them from afar
Feeding, breeding, scheming
Tell me I am wrong

Verse 2

Hiding from discovery
Staring down into the ground
Had they seen the posion in me
A tide of spite would be found
 
Moving faster lingering gaze
Feasting on my sanity
A grain of sand against endless waves
Wish for the slaughter of conformity

Chorus

Blinding light as the flames grow higher
Searing skin on a funeral pyre
 
Blinding light as the flames grow higher
Searing skin on a funeral [<pyre>]

Bridge

[Inside me sleeps a violence waiting to be freed]

Chorus

Blinding light as the flames grow higher
Searing skin on a funeral pyre
 
Blinding light as the flames grow higher
Searing skin on a funeral <pyre>
 
Blinding light and the flames go higher
Searing skin on a funeral pyre
 
^[Should I speak] and they'll call me a liar
^[I'll retreat to my funeral pyre]

Outro

My sanctuary
A thousand centuries
I'm not waiting
I'm tired of waiting
 
^[I'm not waiting]
^[I'm tired of waiting]
^[I'm not waiting]
^[I'm tired of waiting]
 
^[I'm not waiting]
