Would you come and share
My cross, my pain, my heartbroken nature
For this burden is too heavy to bear
Too troublesome for one man to handle

Since my darkness swallowed
The last gleam of light
I've been rambling in the shadows
Hour after hour in the dark

They who never got sorrow,
Grinding grief in their hearts
Never lost a thing,
Never had a thing

They who never witnessed beauty,
That flamed even the all-encompassing night
Never lost a thing,
Never had a thing

Now these bitter tears run ceaseless,
And drown my hope far too deep
It must've been the day we parted
When I trapped this sadness in me

Since my darkness swallowed
The last gleam of light
I've been clothed in mourning,
Wearing sorrow day and night

    General Commentthis song sounds a lot more agressive and more angry then most others.

    basically these lines sum up the song

    "They who never witnessed beauty,
    That flamed even the all-encompassing night
    Never lost a thing,
    Never had a thing

    Now these bitter tears run ceaseless,
    And drown my hope far too deep
    It must've been the day we parted
    When I trapped this sadness in me"

    and then the question (i think it to anyone willing to help) at the start:

    "Would you come and share
    My cross, my pain, my heartbroken nature
    For this burden is too heavy to bear
    Too troublesome for one man to handle"

    awesome song.

    General Commentoh forgot to say the anger comes from the loss of that "beauty" that flames even the all encompassing night.

    but thats obvious XD

    General CommentMy favorite song on the album. Seems to me like this is where the son and the father part and the son has a really hard time grieving after his mother and losing his father as well.
