Opeth - Benighted tab

    ______________
   / 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?...
