"Prologue" as written by Mikael Lars Akerfeldt and Sven Peter Malcolm Lindgren....
A morning in magenta, the petals fed from the dew. She held her breath for a moment, to pause off the stream. Still clinging to vast, old memories. And I would marvel at her beauty, playing through the rain. The coffin is beautifully engraved. Stained by soil, symbols of death. All of which are stared upon, with porcelain eyes it seems. Some spoke, and it was my turn to go. In death entwined, I could not believe. But it hangs around my neck. A soft breeze passed me by, somewhat warmer for a second. I knew it was the coming of spring, thus our >April Etheral<

    General CommentNone of them are sung. They're just there so that when you read them it can kind of give you an introduction to the story. Same goes for Epilogue.

    General CommentAre these lyrics from the album booklet or something? I haven't bought the album yet, so I don't know.

    General CommentYes, they are. Same with Madrigal.

    Go buy the album. Personally, it's my favourite album of all time.

    But yeah, the lyrics of this just establish that the main character is a ghost and that he is watching his loved one at his funeral, and that voices are asking him to ascend and leave limbo. However, he decides to stay behind, resolved to be with her again.
