Treasure Island

Stay Away From My Grave


Stay away from my grave
Though I left you in anticipating grief
I left? ! ...Yes I left
But there dwells not your wave
A moment before I left
I misplaced my will
Wasn't it revolting to you taste,
When you sat weary celebrating?
I saw you sat in smiles
As she recited my eulogy

Stay away from my grave
Before the crack widens
For I speak with great plainness
I didn't rest in peace I died
Peace I left my son Lawedo
He who saw the siren surmount
And collapsed to lament
When he regains from comma
Tell him my nature has shrunk
With peculiar sensitiveness
Address him to re-dig these soil
And free me from this golden box

Stay away from my grave
You bewildered black witch
Take that to poor Lawedo
Tell him to sell the casket
But not to the village carpenter
And top up life balances
Drape me lad over and over
Then toil me with bare soil
How dare they do that to you?
Read not Lawedo that obituary
For am not gone I'll return
Fare thee well am your dad
Don't call me late lawedo
For I was always on time
Even if you see her in double-life
Tell her right there
To stay away from my grave
