    ______________
   / 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
   When you're able

   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 "

Great job. Much more accurate than the other version.

After the second riff, at about 1:18, it sounds to me more like
|---------------0h2-|-------3---------|

Also the end of the second riff sounds more like this IMO:
|------------------|---------------------|
|-3----------------|---------------------|
|-2-----0-----2s4--|-(4)-0-----0---------|
|-0-----2-----3s5--|-(5)-2s4---2---------|
|------------------|---------------3s2-0-|
|-2p0-0-----0------|--0------0---0-------|

Other than those two things it sounds great!
