From the recording Paradise Outlaw

Suffer without suffering
Rise my only rose
Idleness is going
As idleness goes

Take back what you gave to me
Take back what you said
Give up this wild giving
That’s been taking you instead

Rise my only rose

Don’t tell what we have done
Don’t tell what it has cost
But keep in idle moments
An eye on what we lost

Rise my only rose

Give back to me my gentile heart
That you never found was true
Haunted by this idleness
What use is it for you?

Rise my only rose

O keep in idle moments
Keep still in idle moments your wild suffering
