Enter me gently
I break in the light
Cover my eyes
With the rags of my life

Was I dreaming?
Or did you say
"The frontiers are falling
It's time to be slipping away
Let's slip away, let's slip away"

All things fall from me
The bonds and the veils
All things blow by me
My sorrows have sails

Was I dreaming?
Or did you say
"The empires are fading
It's time to be slipping away
Let's slip away, let's slip away"

What am I to do? Don't leave me
What is there to say? I really

We're just wasting time
Let the night takes its place
Color my eyes
With the dusk of this wonderful day
Let's slip away, let's slip away

Letters from lovers
Are lining my grave
Some came too early
And some came too late

Were you speaking?
Or did I say
"The frontiers have fallen
It's time to be slipping away"

"As you call me
My hands they fall open
My mouth, it is frozen
The [Incomprehensible] stumbles
I'm falling slow-motion, dissolve"
