My stab at the lyrics:
Nights turn to days
Days turn to years
Within them I spin in circles.

Winds strike me
Blowing down my neck
Everything seems too far
Too much for me.

It's not me progressing
It's just time moving on
A train passing
A tightening noose.

Sunrises sink rapidly
Seasons keep passing
And I'm still there
Within the shrinking moment.

Thanks, Joe in Australia. It's bittersweet but not just for the sort-of stationary character. Beautifully made video.

It's a very good song for a Sunday. Also, the translated lyrics are in the vein of what I expected, because the whole package of video, music and lyrics works together so well.

Breathtakingly lovely. Both the song and the animation. Many thanks!

Lovely indeed. Love the spiral as a metaphor for life; it encompasses both the cyclical and linear aspects of time as we experience it.
