Mount Eerie - Do Not Be Afraid

Mount Eerie - Do Not Be Afraid

Do not be afraid.
Do not be afraid.
You will spend time in the mountains
In the mountains means in the world
In the world it is dark,
And the real world is looming,
It is dark upon darkness.
You feel around slowly,
Some sounds in the night,
And you will be in the world
By not being afraid and being able to cope,
Make yourself be in the world
Get into the world by letting things touch
By not being afraid,
By noticing mountains
And the snow from them to you.
The youth we are losing does have some meaning,
It's like ripening dawn,
Because as we are dying,
So dies our days.
And entering evenings,
Long night comes,
And entering evenings,
We become grey in the blue light
And slow and thoughtfully enter
Whatever waits in shadows:
The black mountain looming above!
Do not be afraid going into the world,
We go home
(There is a black mountain looming)
Going in, we go home,
Into sex and disasters and the living unknown.
You will spend time in the mountains
You will spend time in the world
