Leonard Cohen - You Want It Darker ( Audio track ) 2016


.... a sepulchral voice who seems coming straight from the grave ..... amazing artistic & moral strength .... a mensch .... lyrics below :
If you are the dealer
I'm out of the game
If you are the healer
I'm broken and lame
If thine is the glory
Then mine must be the shame 

You want it darker
We kill the flame
Magnified and sanctified Be Thy Holy Name Vilified and crucified
In the human frame
A million candles burning For the help that never came 

You want it darker
We kill the flame
Hineni Hineni
I'm ready, my Lord
There's a lover in the story
But the story's still the same There’s an lullaby for suffering And a paradox to blame
But it’s written in the scriptures And it’s not some idle claim 

You want it darker
We kill the flame
They’re lining up the prisoners now The guards are taking aim
I struggled with some demons
They were middle-class and tame Didn’t know I had permission
To murder and to maim You want it darker
We kill the flame
Hineni Hineni
I'm ready, my Lord
Magnified and sanctified Be Thy Holy Name Vilified and crucified
In the human frame
A million candles burning For the love that never came 

You want it darker
We kill the flame
If you are the dealer
I'm out of the game
If you are the healer
I'm broken and lame
If thine is the glory
Then mine must be the shame You want it darker
We kill the flame
Hineni Hineni
I'm ready, my Lord?
