"Blacken The Cursed Sun" as written by David Randall Blythe, Mark Morton, Will Adler, John Campbell and Chris Adler....
Seize a darkened day,
There's only hell to pay,
And no one left to see this prodigal return.
Sweet apathy's my toll.
You'll mourn the traded soul.
I'll dig a deeper hole.
Sanctity, a breath away.
Just a breath away.
Blacken the cursed sun.
You're not the only one,
To have sunk so far and low.
There is no tomorrow.
A tragedy on display,
A sickness for all to see.
I will kill this part of myself that I hate and that I see in you.
It was always mine, anyway.
There's something you can't take away.
I choose not to feel the pain
Sanctity, a breath away.
Just a breath away.
Away.
Just a breath away.
Blacken the cursed sun.
You're not the only one,
To have sunk so far and low.
There is no tomorrow.
Blacken the cursed sun.
Blacken what's yet to be done.
Blacken, because now you know, there is no tomorrow.

Is there still hope for us?
Can we still be saved?
Does your God hold a place for us?
There is no tomorrow.
Is there still hope for us?
Can we still be saved?
Does your God hold a place for us?
Is there time to repent?
Will we rise from the dead?
Can these sins even be forgiven?
Is there still hope for us?
Were we ever even alive?
Is any of this even real?
You're just a breath away.
You're just a breath away.
Better to die quick fighting on your feet
Then to live forever begging on your knees
No.
Can we still be saved?
Hell no!
Does your God hold a place for us?
Hell no!
Is there time to repent?
Hell no!
Will we rise from the dead?
Hell no!
Can these sins even be forgiven?
Hell no!
Is there still hope for us?
Hell no!
Were we ever even alive?
Hell no!
Is any of this even real?
Hell no!
Hell no!

    General Commentnevermind on me saying the song is too catchy ... what i meant to say is that the guitars are a little less heavy and kinda less powerful but still dont get me wrong this song is still fuckin amazing , especially the end where Randy sounds like fuckin Martin Luther King or some kind of preacher of a cause its awsome!

    General CommentThe opening is very "Opethesque". Best song on the album in my opinion.

    Sounds like a very nihilistic take on humanity. He's fed up with it, says it's too late to change and might as well make things worse.

    Song MeaningWatch the 'Walk with me in Hell' DVD your all way off on what he is talking about, and probably reading way too much into it.

    General Commentsorry for the double post, but anyway i've came to a half assed conclusion here...i hate to sound so narrow minded as to assume this song is about religion (because every song seems to be perceived as a song about religion, drugs/alcohol, or politics) but it seems to be a song about religion. or maybe something with suicide even, i dont know, just trying to think outside the box

    General CommentI think I undersatand what you are saying about this song and its guitar, its not that its to catchy, it may be vary close to something alse we have heard in the past, or maybe too infuenced sounding, people have said that sacrament does have a pantara feel too in.
