Swallow The Sun - Rooms And Shadows Lyrics




I walked into the room of shadows and closed the door behind me

Silent walls remind me of my faults
Bleeding paintings of holy colours
Burnt letters and ghosts from the past
Floating through the heavy air with the ghosts I left behind

Like the ashes I left behind

From the cradle of this life I bleed upon your holiness
The ones I left behind
My heart, withered with time, dead from all this emptiness
The dark I came to find

Blind is the mirror that reflects this art
From poisoned daggers and lies it's been forged
To carry the weight of devil's wings is less than what I carry inside

I carry inside

From the cradle of this life I bleed upon your holiness
The ones I left behind
My heart, withered with time, dead from all this emptiness
The dark I came to find

When everything vanishes around you and slowly slips through your fingers
And all you have left is pain, would you do it again?

Alone in this empty room of shadows
Alone, filled with memories of nothing
Would you do it again and remain the same?

From the cradle of this life I bleed upon your holiness
The ones I left behind
My heart, withered with time, dead from all this emptiness
The dark I came to find

  1. Ben Donahue

    This is a beautiful work of art.

  2. Solid

    amazing

  3. régis Heretik

    2019 Merci!! :)

  4. Bobby Orwig

    This is uncanny, I listened to this just after Disillusion - Wintertide. Strikingly similar. WMG would probably sue even. Same tempo, atmosphere, and almost same melody comparing to the beginning of this song.
    In other words, a strong recommendation for both.

  5. Music lover

    Album in my collection, thanks for vid.

  6. alberta santagà

    Awesome!!! Mikko is really good!!!

    3. Rooms And Shadows


    I walked into the room of shadows
    And closed the door behind me

    Silent walls remind me of my faults
    Bleeding paintings of holy colours
    Burnt letters and ghosts from the past
    Floating through the heavy air
    With the ghosts I left behind
    Like the ashes I left behind

    From the cradle of this life I bleed upon your holiness
    The ones I left behind

    My heart, withered with time, dead from all this emptiness
    The dark I came to find

    Blind is the mirror that reflects this art
    From poisoned daggers and lies it's been forged
    To carry the weight of devil's wings
    Is less than what I carry inside

    When everything vanishes around you
    And slowly slips through your fingers
    And all you have left is pain
    Would you do it again?

    Alone in this empty room of shadows
    Alone, filled with memories of nothing
    Would you do it again? And remain the same?

  25. Katri Aurora

  44. Malazan Goddess

  45. Pier-Andrea Bascetto

    Intro is pretty damn-like Gojira - L'Enfant Sauvage , anyone ?

    NoxAurea

    Slower and deeper

  46. Anathem68

    Хороши как всегда

  47. MetalRoses

    Best metal bands are from Finland

  48. Rafael A Ibarra

    una de las mejores canciones doom metal q haya escuchado....

  49. Piero Chighizola

    From my point of view I could find 2 interpretations for this video
    The first one is that the girl has a twin that died but she keeps bringing her back and remembering whilst her mother just wants to forget her. Thats why she runs away and wants to keep her safe from suffering (remembering her dead sister) this one was just by watching the video.
    The second one is about the lyrics and video I think it is about confronting what Psyquiatrist Carl Jung calls "the Shadow" which is a part of our self that is hidden in the subconscious and contains every thing we despice and hate, the bad things about ourselves that we "project" on others. So the Kid has to recognize her shadow and fight it. The older women could be her as a grown up and everything is happening in her mind where her true self and her shadow are in a battle of opposites forces.

    kingragnork

    it's likely the latter but the former resonates more with me as I too was a twin who lost my brother when I was young.

  50. Letm Dark

    was not a fan. then this happened! Holy fuck!!

  73. Conde Grishnackh

    guitars are fuckin awesome

  74. Hugh Jasdik

    And Badonkatonia. They have the best big booty back up dancers of any Swedish meatball band.

  75. Hugh Jasdik

    Swallow The Shaft, My Dying Big Booty Ho and early Oprah is among the best black doom metal

    Lalaskus Tabaskus

    mindofchrist777 lollololol wtf

  76. Yaha Yashidza

    entry looks like Fear Factory - "Designing the Enemy" ...

  77. Nicklas Savanen

    swallow the sun is the Best Melodic Doom Death metal band..

    kingragnork

    I'm just happy bands like this exist. They're all amazing and we are all better for having listened to them.

    Mehmet Andaç

    Besides Daylight Dies

    Colin Lmbrt

    I pick Slumber instead

    Derangedxzombie

    We gonna talk about best melo death bands and not mention edge of sanity?? (To be fair they were ahead of their time so probably somewhat progressive) as for doom STS and Candlemass are top of their game, especially STS because their songs are darker.

    Chard Ong

    For me Rapture is the best! Ghost Brigade, Daylight Dies and Black Sun Aeon too.

  78. Von Ray

    Melancholy at it's best.

  79. Josh Kwolek

    0:24 I've been waiting to see the inside of that barn since the Morning Never Came was released

  80. metalmatt

    What an amazing band. If someone ever says that ALL modern metal bands suck, just show them these guys. Highly original and atmospheric.

    wissam Salha

    i like the melodic/progressive metal more than the old school metal.
    art is subjective

    Mixed Mask

    Not the metal bands, the production. To over produced

    TheDude Lebowski

    They're ok? The Emo aspect is a little insufferable. But yeah, nothing really special going on here.

    La Posada de Netón

    Wintersun... There's a lot of amazing melodeath/doom metal out there

  81. Alaa Sh

    U are the best >> keep going <3

  82. Joey Sparks

    one badass band

  83. Hort

    Vocalists name?

    Wow Roucool

    Mikko Kotamäki

    BRK Sorin

    To lazy to search on Google.. You people

    Eeboo7123

    And you're too lazy to search on Google for the proper form of to/too/two to use.

  84. Jenny Papalexandris

    stunning video !

  85. Hugh Jasdik

    reminds me of the first nsync album before they went pop

    António Gonzalez

    mindofchrist777 I actually laughed at this

    luana julia

    Wait what

    Robert Rivera

    The only reason you laughed is you obviously don't got your mind right!!!!!!!666

    Enigmalake

    *NSYNC were more thrash but you could sense they’d go full on auto tune boy band after their haircuts

    kingragnork

    @Enigmalake i am now googling Nysync thrash days and am about to regret it.

  86. Daniel Arnaldo-Roman

    Some Opeth acoustics as well

  87. Marcelo I

    gojira haciendo doom?

  88. Rami

    bough the album 3 masterpieces with different atmospheres... my fav is II

  89. Han Hars

    Selamatkan diri dari fitnah dajjalllllll

  90. The Wheeled Headbanger

    Sounds like Novembers Doom

    metalmatt

    I have to disagree but November Doom rules.

  91. Jean Marcel

    que voz fraca, eu esperava mais.

  92. AngryMisanthropicLoner

    That guitar riff in the beginning reminded me of another song, I think it might be an Opeth song but I'm not too sure

    Max Geier

    Gojira - l'enfant sauvage i think

    6d6f7274686f6e

    +Max Geier yes exactly. Someone should do a mashup, it's the same tone.

    Christian Matthew

    reminds me of the droning intros of caliban tracks, but also does sound like the other suggestions yea

    Daniel Arnaldo-Roman

    Katatonia and Daylight Dies have one with the same riff

    Favy F.

    yes u right, but me dont remember if u is amorphis or katatotia

  93. Cloud Wizard

    After a while of listening, I don't like this stuff. I'm a big doom metal fan and I find nothing to cling on. This is just boring and falls flat. Everything that is done in their music seems to be done better everywhere else.

    Jan van Lier

    Cloud Wizard I saw them live and almost fell asleep

  94. kteaka

    Wow i am deeply in love with these guys. holy fuckk

    Ali Ewais

    kteaka im madly in anger with you

  95. Андрей

    какие-то 64 пидора поставили дизы. вы охуевшие идиоты бля

  96. tanyafusus

    I think the forest was burned too.

  97. Edward Ruff

    What a stunning sound....

  98. Bamsmacked

    This is their best release. For months I only listened to part 1 and 2 but because I couldn't stop. Now I am finally listening to part 3 and I have to say part 3 is the ultimate closing for the album. Slow, heavy, doomy and despair.

    Amazing, amazing album!

  99. Igor Petrov

    This triple kill! A material that you have to understand if you are familiar to this band. They are just flowing their way, they are just as awesome as always. Just get it \m/
