Atonement Lyrics

Cleared the fog that was veiled around me
And blurred my sights
Suddenly, I'm no longer aching
To honor my plights

Rising moon and my skin is peeling
Past undone
Suddenly, I can't justify
What I had become

    Well as a huge Opeth fan i would like to share my opinions about this song with u and i would be very happy to see your point of veiw. With a very brief text this song is a masterpiece. First of all it has an ancient Egyptian theme which helps it become more spiritual. Then also as you might have realized it talks about the experience of suddenly having a clear vision about everything which might be bitter because you know you've screwed up in the past in many situations., but yet willing to fix everything by the means of the "clear vision" that we talked earlier.You no more care about your characteristics and thus yourself the only thing is to reach your target. Looking to the album theme this so called talent is gained by the means of being isolated for quite a time that has been spent on thinking.At last Akerfeldt talks about how he thinks that he has become something very defferent from his past but he can not find any logical explanation for his existence , yet he is satisfied with the change cause he is sure he'll do better in his life this time.
