To A Loyal Friend

Sopor Aeternus

Once there was a time

when the conquest of pain

was all that I could hope for,

had been my only aim.

Happiness or joy merely unwords without meaning,

they were unwanted anyway as surely out off-place.

All I wanted was the voices to be silent,

a brief moment in the Dark ,

in loneliness and chill.

How I wished my mind could escape

the carnal dungeon that was flying silently

through space while I lay gaged and chained within.

Today my view strangely increased

it is beyond compare,

but nothing became easier,

I'm still struggling to be free.

A thousand different things dare

to appear before my eyes now,

they come and leave untouched,

becase still I cannot see.

In true darkness there's no choice

than to discover the use- lessness of eyes,

giving birth from their own despair.

Here eyes can nothing

but decay and if I fail do identify

myself with them then their destiny I'll share...

You are with me all the time -

all the time.

so very un - reasonable had been my fear.

How could I ever believe

that I might be losing you

when forever we're con - nected and you are part of me.

It's your omnipresence

that defines the way in which I do exist force - fully

leading me back to where I do belong.

Opening my eyes

to see the true essence of my being

by dissolving the distractions of the outer world.

In the loneliness of the pain

you bring the isolation of my soul

guarantees the maintenance

of the only thing that I know:

my natural and obvious differency.

Beloved old friend and life-time com - panion,

without you to nothing I would fall.

Your power per - vades me and lies me low,

but at the same time

a new strength is born in my soul.

In a universe of change

and continuous movement I am counting

on you since I know you shall last.

Being my darkness and the basis of splendor light-giving

background as most fertile past.

You "trance-formation"
