I'm haunted by night angels
Adrift on black waters without a shore.
Lone waters still and dead.
Deep waters dark with dread.
On a course obscure and endless
Searching for a soul, divided
Alone and restless
Chasing night phantoms in Dreamland.
Chasing those phantoms to Birdland
Beyond the Mountains of the Moon.
Out of time.
Out of space.
Out of mind.
Through this glass, but darkly
El Dorado vanishing in the air.
This fever called living has conquered the past.
This fever called living is not going to last.
This fever dream is conquered at last.
I have drank the water that quenches all thirst.
I have drank the water that is blessed and cursed.
I have drank the water that is wine and is blood.
Down a dark, relentless river
Through the pale door
Forever, haunted memories from the past
Beckon from the earth to the heavens
To vanish at last.
To live in the present is all that I ask.
Evermore, is all that I ask.
Evermore, at last.
