Such tragic event
A victim clings to survival
Embraced by the reaper
A caress so warm the flesh burns
I witness in horror
This sight of disaster before me
Igniting panic emotions
Distorting what I feel
Are my emotions confused by the shock I endured?
As the fear and concern in my mind soon getting blurred
By a new sensational feeling, more frightful than mine
I enter the dying, sharing his body and mind
Activate transmission sequence
I feel how his agony, fears
And despair intertwine
A link of telepathy
In mind and body, has opened
Sharing his mortal fear
And doubt to survive
I sense the stage of death herein!
Are you taking me with you am I dying as well?
Are we already leaving this weak human shell?
Grains of life shall count the cost
Mind to ashes, skin to dust x2
The connection’s getting weaker
White noise flashes, turning bleaker
Free me from this intuition
Life fades out – lost transmission
