"Under The Weeping Moon" as written by Chris Fehn, Craig Jones, Michael Crahan, Corey Taylor, Nathan Jordison, Paul Gray, Sid Wilson and Mickael / Thomson....
Once again I've cried
Unto the moon
That burning flame
That has guided me
Through all these years

The lake from which you flow

With eyes of fire
Once unlit but now alive
This energy, sparkling
Like a morning star

The morning star

Riding the fires of
The northern gold
I've searched the eye
I laugh under the weeping moon

I am the watcher in the skies
Nor the emeralds know my mark
Glisten to mark their presence
Set the enigma ablaze

Burn the winter landmarks
That said I was there
Burn the spirit of cold
That travel through my soul

    General CommentI was at an Opeth concert once last year and Akerfeldt actually said before playing the opening riff that it was a song about absolutely nothing, with no meaning whatsoever...still kicks ass though!

    General CommentAbsolute awesome tune.

    On their newest live album "The Roundhouse Tapes", Åkerfeldt said before they began playing this track, that this lyrics is just pure black metal nonesense.

    My Opinioni've just discovered that a mountain in East Zimbabwe has a mountain called weeping moon and its said that deep underground it there are reptilians/demons and that people go missing there. Coincidence or not the song kicks ass

    General Commentaccording to the band, just a evil nonsense song: The most evil song on the album, said Lindgren, the lyrics for "Under the Weeping Moon" were "some kind of satanic worship of the moon. It doesn't really deal with anything", according to Ã…kerfeldt

    General CommentThis is easily one of the top 5 Opeth songs. The part where he sings "I laugh under the weeping moon" kicks so much ass.

    General CommentYeah, the comment Mikael made on The Roundhouse Tapes made me look properly at the lyrics. And I agree, it sure doesn't make any sense whatsoever. Great song though.

    General CommentIt's about some kind of satanic worship of the moon.. Akerfeldt is never really direct about what the meanin is behind their first two albums lyrics most of the time. I think it's because he's not into the occult like he was at that time anymore.. He probably thinks what was it thinking.. I think is awesome occult or not. Love this album
