"Alone" as written by and Nacio Herb/freed Brown....
From childhood's hour I have not been
As others were- I have not seen
As others saw- I could not bring
My passions from a common spring
From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow; I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone;
And all i lov'd, I loved alone
Then- in my childhood- in the dawn
Of a most stormy life- was drawn
From ev'ry depth of good and ill
The mystery which binds me still:
From the torrent, or the fountain,
From the red cliff of the mountain,
From the sun that 'round me roll'd
In its autumn tint of gold-
From the lightning in the sky
As it pass'd me flying by-
From the thunder and the storm,
And the cloud that took form
(When the rest of Heaven was blue)
Of a demon in my view

    General CommentIt's a by Edgar Allan Poe. Arcturus have previously used it on their album La Masquerade Infernale, to a much different affect.
