The sweet smell of a great sorrow lies over the land
The sweet smell of enormous sadness spreads over the earth
Plumes of smoke rise and merge into the leaden sky
Columns of smoke emerge in a leaden sky
A man lies and dreams of green fields and rivers
A reclining man dreams of green fields and rivers
But awakes to a morning with no reason for waking
But wakes up one morning with no reason to get up

He's haunted by the memory of a lost paradise
He is haunted by the memory of a lost paradise
In his youth or a dream, he can't be precise
In his youth or in a dream, he could not be more precise
He's chained forever to a world that 's departed
He is chained to a dead world forever
It's not enough, it's not enough
It's not over, it's not over

His blood has frozen and curdled with fright
His blood froze and petrified with fear
His knees have trembled and given way in the night
His knees trembled and gave way overnight
His hand has weakened at the moment of truth
His hand weakened for a moment of truth
His step has faltered
His step stumbled

One world, one soul
One world, one soul
Time pass, the river roll
Time flies, the river flows

And he talks to the river of lost love and dedication
And he speaks to a river of lost love and consecrations
And silent replies that swirl invitation
And the silence replies that this swirling invitation
Flow dark and troubled to an oily sea
Sinks, dark and cloudy, towards an oily sea
A grim intimation of what is to be
A grim suggestion of what to be

There's an unceasing wind that blows through this night
There is an incessant wind blowing through the night
And there's dust in my eyes, that blinds my sight
And there is dust in my eyes that makes me blind
And silence that speaks so much louder than words
And the silence that speaks much louder than words
Of promises broken
Broken promises
