Lose yourself in Eternity

Some find their way through it all; others abide their long days amiss
No concern for metre and rhyme; emptiness their refuge and bliss

Long the night with hidden star; longer still a lonely meander am I
To grapple this fleeting shadow; with inane words that barely edify

Along this final rung a code; a cryptic word in ancient Hebrew
Letters swarm all around you; another penetrating mystery to construe

You utter the name of the angel, and steps appear to lead the way
Into the unknown you persevere, with the angel as your valet

You are no longer you anymore, but emptiness to the inner core
A passing thought without a home; resistance in an endless roam
Now say my name as if your own, and abdicate this foolish throne
Take my hand and rise with me, lose yourself in eternity

My name cannot be spoken here, unless the skies should raineth fire
And you of little faith & wonder, should greet your funeral pyre

Now the time has come at last, for those of you with ears to hear
To reckon the number of man, and rise above this lowly sphere

Your enemy is not your enemy; neither is your friend a friend
All of life is but an illusion, a place to extend & make pretend

There is no such thing as me & you; us and them or anything you do
There is only bright endless light; which no-body can accrue

Now that you have seen the light; where there is no right or wrong
Suspend your will forever more; sing with me this one last song

You are no longer you anymore, but emptiness to the inner core
A passing thought without a home; resistance in an endless roam
Now say my name as if your own, and abdicate this earthly throne
Take my hand and rise with me, lose yourself in eternity

Now say my name one last time, and sever these chains to modernity
Take my hand and make the climb, lose yourself in eternity
