"Roads" as written by and Mikael Akerfeldt Josh Silver....
The voice of loss is sighing through the rain
And as I turn around
Nothing is to be found
For hours now upon this endless road
Is it taking me
Where I long to be?


A soaring hope is reeling in my head
I can’t remember this
But it must be what I miss
Suddenly I find I’m standing still
Staring at the ground
Waiting for your sound

    General CommentThis is one of my favourites on the album...they really chose an amazing pairing of musician and vocalist here. Lyrically it reminds me of songs on Opeth's 'Damnation' - themes of loss and journeys seem to be something that Mikael Akerfeldt comes back to in his writing. I really love the second verse but I haven't figured out exactly what I think it means yet.

    General Commentholly shit this song is awsome. "Army of the Sun" is my favorite on the C.D. but this song has to be 2nd. I love Mikael Akerfeldt's voice.
