Lyrics

Dive into the deep blue
of my eyes, with yours,
where the pupil eclipses the iris
and underneath, hides Jupiters'
grey thunderous skies
when I glance towards
those hazel planets
that the telescope of all
my being adores to witness,
you mesmerize, and I
gaze, longing to elope.

Dai, amore mio

Come with me,
to fight Mors
and go yonder
the firth of death,
to Paradise,
away from the Inferno,
this saturnine earth,
to be at one with The Erotes,
to prosper as we deserve.

Dai, amore mio

Descending Plutos' slope
of woe and passion,
quivering to the dæmons' trill
that spills from my heart
as it flutters and dies
by way of the Ouroboros,
overcome and undone
by your beauty, that covers me
with the soil of its grave,
o' so safe in your arms,
asleep-then-awake,
eternally sans turmoil.

Dai, amore mio

Come with me,
to fight Mors
and go yonder
the firth of death,
to Paradise,
away from the Inferno,
this saturnine earth,
to be at one with The Erotes,
to prosper as we deserve.
