Lethe Lyrics

Artist: Dark Tranquillity
Album: The Gallery

Give me the drink of the fluid
That disintegrates
And lend me the sweet balm and blessing
Of forgetfulness, empty and strong
Oh, lethe

Hold me near, unravel the stars
As I speed through the heavens
Speed through the night
For you are my blade and my rope
You are my lethe
You are my all

In currents of cobalt
You storm through my heart
To sever, to puncture
The memories that burn
Let sweep through the arteries
In sharp stabs of pain
Your talon-like fingers to kill me again

Steal me, invade me and charge me again
For I burn and I shudder
Burn with each movement of

So, cleansed through a floodlight
I appear, renewed and reforged
Caressed by the sweet balm and blessing
Of forgetfulness, empty and strong

Hold me near, my one friend and guide
As I drown through your fingers
Drown through your love
For you are the life I hate
You are my

Drag me down, in passionate sighs
With the ocean above me
And flames in my eyes
And grant me a life I can live
Take me away

From the life that I hate

i love the last part this song is the only metal song that i can listen it even middle of the night(Drag me down, in passionate sighs
With the ocean above me
And flames in my eyes
And grant me a life I can live
Take me away

From the life that I hate

Ohh Letheeeee :] So Great..

"some says it is a love song but i think it tells about heroin"

well it depends, it can be about both. depends what the listerner feels about the lyrics thats the cool thing with DT, they make lyrics that means diffrent for diffrent people since the lyrics are so well written they can suit in many categorys while pop and suchs jsut got 1 road of way to understand the lyrics

The sweetest and painfull song I've ever heard!

Take me away from the life that I hate
by Cleric on 6/29/2009 5:55pm
lethe is the river in greek times that the undead had to drink from to forget their sorrows of life.

that would relate to lethe being his alcohol/drugs imo
by Analanous on 6/30/2009 2:54pm
Probably about alcohol, kick ass song
by evilmaker on 10/16/2009 2:15pm
ador it !! :)
by SLaYeR on 10/22/2009 4:47pm
this is the best song i have ever listened
by Metalsaurus Rex on 11/10/2009 12:58pm

It's a great song, Dark Tranquillity has many which are equally good, or better than this one. But don't come here talking about crying. This is metal, not emo.
by spiritcrusher on 1/23/2010 6:52am
One of the best love songs ever.
Mirrors reality poetically.
by Mysecret on 2/11/2010 12:33am
Lethe also means a state of oblivion, like being completely dissolved in thought. I think that's what they refer to altough that river in the kingdom of Hades (if i got it right) would make sense if you view the lyrics as being about alcohol or drugs.

This is the most EPIC and Emotional song that anyone ever ever ever Created.
by In Light of Exodus on 6/16/2010 11:18am
This is the most beautiful song that i've ever heard. This song neither about love or drugs, but instead about all of lifes troubles...and how they'll be taken away...
by nemesis on 6/25/2010 9:59am
you were my lethe, you were my all.
by dustman on 7/7/2010 12:23pm
as u all say... DT has crossed all the way through life to release such epic. But to tell you that if lethe runs in hades then we can see hades eveyday here.. That's why they r askin for lethe to take him away! They speed to heaven when they speed to the night.
by gunter on 7/29/2010 10:20am

by cryptropsy on 3/17/2011 10:59pm
by Limis on 11/7/2011 1:53pm
Mikael said on a live show that this song is one of their few drinking songs, so this tells about alcohol.
by Markos on 11/11/2011 9:49pm
Hey Limis, if you're telling the truth then cheers for clarifying this one.
I was wondering whether or not this was about people using substances to forget of life's sorrows or if about "forcing" forgetfulness upon them. Both for the mere reason of feeling too weak or afraid to face the "unforgiving" memories of their lives.
