Lyrics:
If you are the dealer, I’m out of the game
If you are the healer, it means 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, sanctified, be thy holy name
Vilified, crucified, in the human frame
A million candles burning for the help that never came
You want it darker

Hineni, hineni
I’m ready, my lord

  1. May the poet cohen rest in peace.
    He was ready but we'r still not ready to let him go.
    May the echoes of the ethernal thank for your art find you in the paradise and whisper "thank you Leonard we'll miss you".
    Rest in peace Leonard Cohen.

  2. If you are the dealer, I'm out of the game
    If you are the healer, it means 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, sanctified, be thy holy name
    Vilified, crucified, in the human frame
    A million candles burning for the help that never came
    You want it darker
    Hineni, hineni
    I'm ready, my lord
    There's a lover in the story
    But the story's still the same
    There's a 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
    And the guards are taking aim
    I struggled with some demons
    They were middle class and tame
    I didn't know I had permission to murder and to maim
    You want it darker
    Hineni, hineni
    I'm ready, my lord
    Magnified, sanctified, be thy holy name
    Vilified, 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, let me out of the game
    If you are the healer, I'm broken and lame
    If thine is the glory, mine must be the shame
    You want it darker
    Hineni, hineni
    Hineni, hineni
    I'm ready, my lord
    Hineni
    Hineni, hineni
    Hineni

  3. Hineni Hineni meaning

    The word 'Hineni' means 'Here I am' in a spiritual sense, which is what Abraham says and means to God to indicate his readiness when he is called on in Genesis 22:1 (הִנֵּֽנִי‎ hinnênî). In 1989, the Hineni Heritage Center opened in New York City. Wikipedia.
