DO NOT SLIP AWAY SOFT (...LET IT BURN WITH A FURY)
Do not slip away soft,
the way Fall fades to winter,
rather, remember the summer sun
and let it burn fiery bright within,
...let it burn with a fury.

Do not slip away soft,
listen...there's so much left you've wanted to learn,
and speak, oh, speak, speak, speak,
there are still many lessons we need to learn,
let your voice howl,
...let it burn with a fury.

Do not slip away soft,
you've always fought for right,
pray as you do,
and fight the good fight,
the hardest fight,
the final fight,
let your fight scream,
...let it burn with a fury.

Do not slip away soft,
though mistakes and time
cannot be taken back,
you've still today to seize the present,
pray for forgiveness,
make a difference,
now cry out your amends,
cry out your prayer,
...let it burn with a fury.

Do not slip away soft,
I watch the spark in your eyes dim
with every day that passes,
but do not mistake that for blindness,
realize what you see,
for you can see more than we,
let that spark blaze even just once more,
...let it burn with a fury.

At last, my mother, oh, my mother,
I watch as her soul sits upon that nebulous line between here...and there...
I can see her trying to decide...
slowly slipping to the other side,
I cry out "No! Remember the fire inside,
...let it burn with a fury...
...but she cannot hear me anymore.
