I'm going to the kingdom of death
where the wide river flows
oh please let me pass
I know what I ask

oh the descent is easy
the return where the labor lies
like Orpheus I rise

I walk under a grudging moon
by the high deceptive light
where the twisted elm tree spreads
false dreams under every leaf


I bring you this golden bough
to breach the realm of night
carry me from the river's edge
into the fields of mourning


oh dawn hold your rose red chariot
I wish more time
I cannot help but to turn my eyes back
no chance to say goodbye
