Mortem Obi


Mortem obi
 Surrounded by silence
 Amid the shadows of time
 Hollow and deep
 My future's dim ghastly shine
 No stone may fall
 No river may flow
 No hedge may grow
 Like time wore away
 On that very day I spent with you
 Dark is my future
 Dark is my past
 I've loved, lost and feared
 My presence at last
 Lost my will to live
 Fell asleep on a dark, dreary day
 I doze the centuries away
 Wake me up from my sleep
 And I'll be born again

 Life's a journey, I'm a traveller
 On floating streams
 Don't seek my heart
 It's lost forevermore
 Life's a journey, I'm a traveller
 With hope and dreams
 Time fades away as
 I gaze at the shore
 Help me to care
 My heart is beating loud and fast
 Help me to bear the burden of life

 A light straight from your eyes
 Beams brightly through the night
 I follow the road
 The end out of sight
 No candle may flicker
 No sundown will ever glow
 No river will ever flow
 No day will ever pass
 Faster than a day with you

 Utendum est aetate
 Morituri te salutant
 Utendum est estate
 E vita cede mortem obi
