    Τραβώντας για τον θάνατο
    πέρασα το ποτάμι
    πέρασα από τα νιάτα μου
    κι απ’ το πικρό νερό.

    Τώρα φωνάζουν πίσω μου
    "ποιος είσαι εσύ που πέρασες;"
    Τώρα φωνάζουν πίσω μου
    "ποιος είσαι εσύ που ξέχασες;
    Τόσοι βρήκαν τον θάνατο
    κανείς τον ποταμό.
    "

    Τραβώντας για τον θάνατο
    πέρασα το ποτάμι
    πέρασα από τη νύχτα μου
    κι απ’ τον πικρό καιρό.

    Going to find death
    I passed across the river
    I walked along my youth
    and it's bitter water

    Now people yell behind me
    "Who are you, that you succeed in passing"
    Now people yell behind me
    "Who are you, that you succeed in forgetting.
    (Cause) Too many found death itself,
    but noone found the river
    "

    Going to find death
    I passed across the river
    I walked along my night
    and the bitter times.

    I believe that "river" is referring to "Near-death experience"

    "Gilgamesh, where are you hurrying to?
    You will never find that life for which you are looking.
    When the gods created man they allotted to him death,
    but life they retained in their own keeping"
