[Old Man:] Do you really want me to lose my virtues?
Do you really want me to lose my faults?
And do you really want me to lose my weakness?
Do you really want me to lose my strength?
And do you really want me to lose my sorrow?
Do you really want me to lose my joy?
And do you really want me to lose my falsehood?
Do you really want me to lose my truth?
And do you really want me to lose my fears?
And do you really want me to lose my hopes?
Do you really want me to lose my faith?
And do you really want me to lose my soul?
Do you really want me to lose my honor?
Do you really want me to lose my shame?
Do you really want me to lose my freedom?
Everything you strife for is me

[Spirit:] Open up your weary eyes
Halt your never-ending and sigh-swollʼn cries
All youʼve never flouted you won't owe
All youʼve never doubted you wonʼt know

You're crying out in deep despair
As the fair is foul and the foul is fair
You will drown in madness once again
And roll up in sadness, tug you in

Always yearning
Never earning
Always trying
Never flying
[Choir: x8] See the light
Feel its might

[Spirit:] You’d leave this sorrow
If you would follow

[Old Man:] Do you really want me to trade my heart?
And do you really want me to trade my soul?
And do you really want me to trade in life for light?

[Spirit:] Do you really think that your life is worth it?

[Old Man:] Beauty and bliss
In the grace of a kiss and love
Lie in the transience of life
Memories retain
All the moments remain with me
Why should I trade? Tell me!

Do you really want me to lose my memory?

[Spirit:] Death comes fast and breaks apart
All the words and pictures in your heart
You will find your pain in once shed tears
For what is a grain in endless spheres?
[Choir:] Always yearning
Never earning
Always trying
Never flying

[Old Man: x2] Do you really want me to lose my virtues?
Do you really want me to lose my faults?
And do you really want me to lose my weakness?
Do you really want me to lose my strength?
And do you really want me to lose my sorrow?
Do you really want me to lose my joy?
And do you really want me to lose my falsehood?
Do you really want me to lose my truth?
And do you really want me to lose my fears?
And do you really want me to lose my hopes?
Do you really want me to lose my faith?
And do you really want me to lose my soul?
And do you really want me to lose my heart?
And do you really want me to lose my deeds?
Do you really want me to lose my life?
And do you really want me to lose my memory?
[Spirit:] Endless spheres
You will find your pain in once shed tears
Donʼt turn your back on your human destiny
You will die and face eternity
Donʼt turn your back on your
All wrong divine conception
As your striving for perfection
Won’t you feel just like a traitor
who has tricked his own Creator?
Strong with words, you draw a curtain
Keeping early scenes uncertain
Now itʼs time to take my guidance
I will show the primal silence
Consign your life to me!
Take my gift and rule your destiny
Donʼt turn your back on your worthless entity
Don’t you see your useless way to be?
Now take my hand and
Consign your life to me!
Take my gift and rule your destiny
Donʼt turn your back on your worthless entity
Don’t you see your useless way to be?
Now take my hand and...

[Old Man:] Life
[Spirit:] Light!
