05. Chasing Soul


I'm chasing for a life of simplicity.
My mind is looking for place.
This quest in my life i can't face.
I keep hunting and searching for prosperity.

What is this feeling i have now?
Like a sword of rolling thunder,
here in my heart i bother.
This insolent sadness i suffer.

In this pain of death harasses my soul.
Remove the mask of unfortunate goal.
This burning hope of mortal destiny.
Remote your soul in fatal defeat.

The worst of the earth ruin my faith
...take me in my dwelling place oh thee!
No doubt, this serenity shall be with me.
