Robin Goodfellow
Dianae, my muse
Morpheus in my heart
Your sand in my veins
It's a deeper kind of slumber

What is universe anyway
But a pouch of silver coins
The intense breathing
Of a dying animal
A foreboding of afterlife
Master keys in oaken chest
The somewhere is mine
And from there I'll continue

All I asked for was a little love
Meet me on the other side
Where as a rose I will wake
Though blind I'll follow every step you take

Dianae, my muse
Dianae, my solitude
Cease to exist, rise to exist no more
It's a deeper kind of slumber

    General CommentI can not believe that no one has commented on this song! The music is just so beautiful and haunting and the lyrics, so powerful. It is about Heroin. Which is very fitting considering how the music sucks you in with it's beauty just like Heroin does.

    My InterpretationI don't think this song is about heroin at all. It's just very "out there" in nature. Right off the bat, the song makes reference to a few different mythological beings; Robin Goodfellow (a mischievous creature), Diane (NOT Dianae! Diane aka Artemis was the goddess of childbirth, hunts, virginity and the wilderness) and finally, Morpheus who is commonly known as the god of dreams. I think the opening verse pretty much defines what this song is about. Edlund uses these mythological beings symbolically to represent something feelings of not being able to have something he's had sight of (Robin Goodfellow) and feelings of hopelessness and perhaps apathy as a result (Diane, my muse. Morpheus in my heart; your sand in my veins).

    Of course, I could still be way off but these are my thoughts. One of my favorite songs from their gothic rock period nonetheless.
