"I Feel the Dark" as written by and Mikael Lars Akerfeldt....
I feel the dark when I see you
I feel the dark when I see you

Loosen the harness of trust
Survey an impulse of lust
The thespian is far away
Uprooted yet forced to stay

Sing a lie, ghost of the night
Give yourself to me
The road is long and winding still
And these bonds will stay to fray
But another day

A flaking wish inside

Veiled comes the daylight through the glass
In the never-ending rain
This is no friend of mine
Stalking the comfort within

A flaking wish inside
The mother of lies

And you're going out to war
When the beast is coming home
And the sun is seen no more
For the devil's love you bore

I feel the dark when I see you

    General Commentcontender for best song on the album along with folklore. as for the meaning, its just the usual cryptic shit mikael writes with absolutely no meaning so his loyal fans can go apeshit trying to decipher the lyrics when there is no meaning to obtain.

    General CommentActually it seems pretty clear it's about sexual abuse, using the rather common "she seduced me" excuse.

    My Interpretationin my humble oppinion i believe the song is about loving a hooker all lines match up give yourself to me as in he loves her and wants love not sex i feel the dark when i see you as in she walks the streets at night going out to war means on the street but all points match up
