I went thru too many people
I went thru heaven and hell
I went from rome to bagdad
Too many stories to tell

I lived thru too many aeons
I've risen up and I fell the fall
I have been there and I have done that
I've see it all and all

My time is running like water
Deeper I dive and deeper
Last of nine lives of the cat
I saved my soul for the reaper

What do you mean by that
Mercy is all you get
Do what you won't regret
Freedom's your self-respect

    Song MeaningThis song reminds me a little of the Highlander movie. It's definitely from the POV of someone who's hundreds of years old or remembers past lives, but is about to die permanently.

    Maybe the narrator isn't a person at all, but an abstract concept (tyranny?). The 2nd verse reminds me of the idea of history (especially the rise and fall of tyrants' regimes) being a cycle. The line "deeper I dive, and deeper" suggest that the cycle is gradually turning into an inward spiral, like a planet in unstable orbit gradually falling into a black hole. It runs through its 360 degrees in less and less time, until it reaches an unsustainable pace. Then we go to Singularity.
