"The Leper Affinity" as written by and Mikael Lars Akerfeldt....
We entered Winter once again
Naked, freezing from my breath
â??Neath the lid, all limbs tucked away
This coffin is your abode from now and onwards

Your body is mine to avail
Such a tragic sight you are
Slave under my creed
Spurring me with those tears

I am beyond death
Midst a dreaming affinity
Saving strength now, faint whispers
Come erotic communion in its splendor

Fever mirrored ghosts
Night-time consolation, cross the line
Draw murder into art
Sleep inside through days

In the wake of this relief
Shivering, longing for more
Insanity at its peak
Love me to my death

Lost are the days of Spring
You sighed and let me in

Keep the beast inside
Shackled within my hide
Screaming out too late
Losing to my hate

Grew together with your skin
And paced the trails of sin

Your gaze, covered with virgin snow
Rigid featuresâ?¦.
It's the shallow deeds who's to blame
Deafening shrieks pierced the night

A step from oblivion
Moving into the dim lights
Hiding within a reverie
It was worth it for the wait alone

    General CommentI think it is made to get us to think it's about rape at first, but I think it's not. My guess is that theres only one character, mutilating himself.

    "Lost are days of Spring
    You sighted and let me in"
    Could be a kind of mental disorder speaking to its victim?

    "Keep the beast inside
    Shackled within my hide
    Screaming out too late
    Losing to my hate
    Grew together with your skin
    And paced the trails of sin"
    Looks like someone who hates himself for whatever sin he has (or thinks he has) done and harms himself as a punishment, no?

    Well, my two cents!
