"Skeleton Dance" as written by Michael Amott, Angela Gossow, Christopher Amott and Daniel Erlandsson....
On a journey ill
My mind floats astray
Over withered fields
I cross the river

This shortness of breath
Between birth and grave
Fading in the distance
I am nothing

Watch the skeleton dance
Dancing on my grave
My frozen hour of death

Watch the skeleton dance
On my grave
My frozen hour of death

Here I am alone
Casting my own shadows
Traversing the mundane
Desperate cry

Boundless darkness
A voiceless fear
Unheard, unseen
It is coming near

Watch the skeleton dance
Dancing on my grave
My frozen hour of death
Watch the skeleton dance
Here I am - alone

Had I not known
That I was dead
I would have mourned
My loss of life
Loss of life

Watch the skeleton dance
Dancing on my grave
My frozen hour of death

Watch the skeleton dance
On my grave
My frozen hour of death
Between birth and grave
Here I am alone

    General Commenthard to believe that's a girl singing..anyways if you reverse the song, there are hidden messages during the intro (the whispers you can hear) the only thing i ever remember hearing was "bleeding forever."

    as for the meaning, i agree with worldbeeb. also, the lyrics towards the end "Had I not known...Loss of life" is the word for word translation of Ōta Dōkan's death poem, once again helping me agree with worldbeeb
