"Opium" as written by and Brendan Perry....
I feel like I want to live
Far from the metropolis
Just walk through that door
I feel like I want to fly
Reach out to the painted sky
A prisoner to the wind
A bird on the wing

I feel the ocean in my blood
See rain from the sky above
Her salt brined tears
And now
Those tears leave taste on my tongue
Like the warm rush you get from
Black opium
Black opium

I feel like I want to leave
Behind all these memories
And walk through that door
The black night calls my name
But all roads look the same
They lead nowhere
They lead nowhere

    My InterpretationThis is probably DCD's most intense cut, ever; puts you into a deep trance that is hard to get out of.

    All about freedom and trying to find your path to truth with the help of your female muse (who rains "salt brined tears" onto your tongue), inspiring you to reach the heights that she has scaled.
