"Call From The Grave" as written by and Quorthon....
God of Heaven, Hear my cries of anguish
I'm in pain
I've suffered a thousand deaths but I live on in vain

Death would greet with eternal sleep
My soul would come to peace
My life had ceased
The time was comed
Can no-one hear my pleas

Lowered down in the moisty ground
Into the dark and cold
My heart's beat the only sound
Pain tears my limbs and soul

I scream for mercy
Hear my cries
Oh, Lord don't abandon me
I'm so tired
Grant me the eternal sleep

I tear at the lid I'm suffering
In a cold and nameless grave
If Hell is what awaits me
I feel no fright

Buried and forgotten
In a cold and nameless grave
If there's a God in heaven
Hear my call from the grave

I tear at the lid I'm suffering
In a cold and nameless grave
If Hell is what awaits me
I feel no fright

Buried and forgotten
In a cold and nameless grave
If there's a God in heaven
Hear my call from the grave

    My InterpretationIt's a man stuck in a situation where there's no way out and he wishes for death.

    My InterpretationOn a literal level this song is about one's consciousness being trapped in a body that is dead and buried and rotting. Similar to "Triumph of Death" by Hellhammer, and "Buried Alive" by Venom.

    As an experience these songs are a pretty good description of some aspects of the extremes of clinical Depression. Being one I would know.
