Opeth - Benighted tab

Help us improve GuitareTab! Take a short survey!
    ______________
   / Opeth       /  I think benighted means being mentally enclosed by something.
  / Benighted   /  This song is about someone who suffers from a loss and is
 / Still Life  /  benighted by it, and about this person, who reached out for her.
/_____________/  Unfortunately (my opinion) this person offers her to fall into
                a deeper mental slumber, into this night - sorta satanic, eh?...

 " Come into this night
   Here we'll be gone

   From our weak and crumbling lives
   Come into this night
   When days are done
   Lost and astray
   In what's vanished from your eyes "

 " Come into this night
   Your plight alone
   Carry your weight
   You are flawed as all of us
   Come into this night

 " Come into this night
   When you're able
   To undo your deeds
   And atone with your lonely soul
   Once you're into this night
   All minds are stable
   Forget all your needs
   Lose the grip of all control "
