Winding white stream that flows ever faster
Runs its course and dissolves in the sea
Filled with all that it's passed on its way

Have you come here in search of an answer
In the hour of your heart's malady?
In the midst of your rending apart?

Walk with me along the way

By the edge of a precipice
So enchanted there with nothingness
The extinguishing sentiments
Let us live without tomorrow

Once I heard that a great chain of Being
Ran from God through the angels to me
Chain unbroken through all of time

Ghostly shapes in the shade by the river
Wan and ghostly the light on the ground
Ghostly all that was once beautiful

But beauty I see as I

Plunge my eyes into the abyss
Never such a tempting sight as it
Dance of death in the sunset
Might as well be no tomorrow

Strong the soul that can pass into silence
Set free at the long river's end
And in silence released from the dream

In that ocean of innocence
All is lost and all forgiven there
Never-ending cadence
For a nature thrown and fallen
Held out into nothingness
With everything before and after us
Closer now, the horizon
And I know there's no tomorrow

No tomorrow
