INANNA: What shall I do, my dear Ninshubur
What shall I do with my life?
I don't feel the love that once ran through me

Ninshubur, I'm getting kind of skeptical
In my days, in universal time
The human race might have no more to offer me

Ninshubur, a chill has just run through me
And a thought keeps racing through my mind
Will they understand, will th
