The Wheel of Death

Now has come the full turning of the wheel
Now has come the hour to give up the unreal
For a man who dies before he dies
Does not die when he dies.
 
I have seen the place far beyond this space
For I would seek to find the treasures in my mind
For a man who sees the way in the morning
Can gladly die in the evening
 
Oh to be free!
Oh to be free!
Of this body ...
 
Now has come the full turning of the wheel
Now has come the hour to give up the unreal
For a man who dies before he dies
Does not die when he dies.
