Versuri Apa Simbetii - Opium
Album: Apa Simbetii - Nihil Sapient
Opium, kind and subtle opium! Thou, who chaseth away All the sorrows of this world! Thou who drowneth all pain Of wounds unseen, of hidden loss... Opium, beloved indulgence Heal my soul with poison Breath this nauseous vapour Separate mind from body Papaver somniferum, Precious gift of Morpheus Joy plant of blissful woe Nepenthes Pharmakon Every night I enter The chasms and shadowed abysses Narcotic depths from which I have no hope to reascend I have kissed her lips I met her tempting eyes Her lust now taints my heart Sweet, deadly Lady Vice Morpheus, Nighted God of Dreams, Has enthralled me In his realm of dark visage I am but a slave To the exquisite pleasures Of the poppy Sweet sedation, Blissful narcosis, I hath known things unthinkable, Dreamt things undreamable, Endured pain unendurable Every day doth I shun the sun For my eyes Have grown accustomed to the dark They have learned to stay Forever shut Every day doth I seek the drug Which alone Makes my life endurable The balm that one day Will also surely end it Praise to thee, oh, merciful opium!
