I stand as I cry
Mourning in the silent rain
Death will light my burden
Endless is my sorrow
Gateways so dark
All these years of dying

Gone are dreams of velvet voices
I am you, we were one
Vast are fields I walk
Where sorrow never dies
The sky unities with the blackened rain
Summon with my tears
Now descend on winter wings
My withering soul.

Let me die.
Gateways of bereavement
A temple of guilt
Falling deep
Embraced in grief
My withering soul
Let me die

Farewell life and all I died for
Now my time is over on earth
Another journey has begun
Alone I died, not praying for mercy
Nor praying for salvation
A lonely journey in a darkened dream
Time has come to spread my wings

Slow
Descending from a silent sky
Death comes to take me away
And from the gateways you hear me
Cry
I love you
