Dying at the Shaman's Hands

"This is a game
Life is a game
A game is all that is
You came here to play
You came here to stay
To play and to stay inside this abyss
But here you will see
But here you will learn
That man is forever to hurt and to yearn
And pain lives for all the eternity"
You  never have lived
You never will die--
A body of earth--
A soul of the sky
You came here to play
You came here to stay
Tormented by death
Yet ready to die
This is a game
Life is a game
A game is all that is
From layers and layers of dreams and of pain
Go deeper and deeper inside this abyss.
