  1. swedish death metal türünün en başarılı gruplarından olan dark tranquillity'nin ikinci albümü the gallery'den efsane bir şarkı. girişindeki davul partisyonları inanılmazdır.

    we are the outstretched fingers
    that seize and hold the wind...

    the strangeness of awakening
    in an oh so silent world
    breathlessly waiting
    for the first proud beams of light
    as the hours grow longer
    and the shadows never fall
    my sky has forsaken me
    my desperation grows

    bring me the light
    in the darkness that never ends
    the dawn will never come
    punish my heaven

    we have arrived
    at the outermost crossroads
    the charge of cosmos
    at our atmospheric skies
    will cause our fall

    if i had wings, would i be forgiving?
    if i had horns
    would there be flames to shy my smile?

    hymns of loss are heard
    from the masses in the streets
    praising the last of days
    i punish

    bring me the night
    in the fires that never end
    the dawn will never come
    punish my heaven

    the charge of cosmos
    charging at us from unearthly distance
    i challenge the universe
    it's the choice between heaven and hell

    my soul bears all the weight of mountains
    as mankind weaves its silent end
    can there be no forgiveness?
    i curse the heaven above me
    as the light sinks through
    my outstretched fingers
    fading in my open arms

    make each tear in my bare hands
    a lifetime in hell

    on this last day of light
    when our autumn leaves fell
    and as heaven itself commands me
    out of its lair
    my face lined with darkness i'll go!
