"Lament Of A Mortal Soul" as written by Michael Amott, Angela Gossow and Christopher Amott....
I am forced to creep down the path
Of my sad and senseless life
Darkness surrounds me
At the end of the tunnel there is no light

A blackened void, nothingness

Lament of a mortal soul
Who am I?
Only dust in the blowing wind
Am I dying?

My name dies slowly
Echoes into eternal oblivion
Replaced by others, castly forgotten
I hate my empty existence

Lament of a mortal soul
Who am I?
Only dust in the blowing wind
...I am dying!

    General CommentI agree, only 2 comments?! This song is great from beginning to end. The main verse riff is so dark and haunting, with splashes of color. I'm tempted to say my favorite track on Wages of Sin. Skillfully crafted from beginning to end, and the lyrics are fittingly existential too.
