La petite mort

I step into the endless river and she whispers
“Come with me, I’ll wash all your troubles away
I immerse myself in her surrender
Death is rapture and in rapture I ebb away
 
Flow with me to the empty ocean
Breathlessly to the moment without end
Guide me back to the sacred mountains
Take me to where the heavens rend
 
Put out, Put out, Put out the light, in my eyes
Answer my prayer. Waste me away
Put out the light in my eyes
Pull me in deep, hold me & sway
 
Triggers hold us ransom every time
So heed my cry, pull mine
Atop mountains, inside oceans
Drain me of life & blow my mind
 
Put out, Put out, Put out the light, in my eyes
Answer my prayer, waste me away
Put out the light in my eyes
Pull me in deep, hold me and…
 
Put out, Put out, Put out the light, in my eyes
Help me die to this day. Waste me away
Put out the light in my eyes
Pull me in deep, hold me & sway
