The shadow of death crosses everyone’s eyes
Everyone who lives surely dies
And I watch the play of the dark
Pierce through every heart
As each step writes its wall
I will see through it all
To know and to become
What I saw when I was young
But it is a piercing scream
To be the One to lift the dream
From a thousand human hearts
Living like this in the dark
It is a shudder cry
To fear every long goodbye
Lest the mountain come to play
The night at the end of the day
But every midnight knows inside
The sun sets only to rise
On the Earth remade for me
I promised I would set you free
