We Sink Our Eyelids in the River

We've done it before, more peacefully.
We've done it tens of thousands of times.
We've done it under anesthesia,
And although that was more frightening
And uncomfortable, it was not
Itself painful, body rendering,
No commitment to the surrender.
When we do it for the final time,
We'll have to pass though hell to get free.
