Enter me gently
Cover my eyes

Or did you say
It's time to be slipping away

The bonds and the veils
My sorrows have sails
Was I dreaming?
"The empires are fading
Let's slip away, let's slip away"
What am I to do? Don't leave me

Let the night takes its place
With the dusk of this wonderful day

Are lining my grave
And some came too late
Were you speaking?
"The frontiers have fallen

My hands they fall open
The [Incomprehensible] stumbles
