[Spirit:] Your sad lit candle is guttering,
but still won't seize to burn
Enough to seethe
Enough to cry
The cause to breathe
The cause to die
If I should handle your muttering,
Iʼll call for in return:
Enough to seethe
Enough to cry
The cause to breathe
The cause to die
[Old Man:] A child
A dream
A womenʼs embrace
A thought
A scream
A comforting face
Two blinks
Three steps
Four words of a phrase
One reason to go on remembering

[Spirit:] It might seem much,
(It might seem much)
but don’t condemn me
Just break the crutch
(Just break the crutch)
that you call memory

[Old Man:] Finally! There’s a doorway to salvation
Should I trust and yield to this temptation?
If I lost my memory
All of my life
Will I still be human?
Curious and free

[Spirit:] Doubts are shading
as the lights are fading
Go lift the curtain
Now be certain
And see

[Spirit:] I will be righteous
and measure the price you have to pay
Enough to seethe
Enough to cry
The cause to breathe
The cause to die
So I am claiming
your treasure of fortune and dismay
Enough to seethe
Enough to cry
The cause to breathe
The cause to die
[Old Man:] A kiss
A smile
A cold chill inside
A song
A dance
A word and a fight
Two hearts
Three lies
Four eyes how they cried
One reason to wipe out and wash away

[Spirit:] It might seem much,
(It might seem much)
but don’t condemn me
Just break the crutch
(Just break the crutch)
that you call memory

[Old Man:] Doubts are shading
as the lights are fading
Go lift the curtain
Now be certain
And see

[Spirit:] Finally! There’s a doorway to salvation
Let him trust and yield to this temptation
If I will have gained
what once was his life,
I will be like mankind
Curious and free

[Old Man:] A tear
A touch
A black tie and shirt
A book
A speech
A shovel of dirt
Two stones
Three names
Four cries of a bird
One reason to live and to die at last

[Old Man:] Finally! There’s a doorway to salvation
It's the trust we take from contemplation
It's the strength of memory
and of wondering
Finally there’s a doorway
Curious and free

[Spirit:] Doubts are shading
as the lights are fading
Go lift the curtain
Now be certain
And consign your life to me!
