A Living Gold Coffin
Buy me a gold coffin
To bury everything I can dream.
Ideals or dreams are something
You’d better find in the undisturbed sleep.
Time will be more than enough
With endless nights to fulfill.
Appeared in the reality are just anguish and despair.
Come to the unfathomed dark to search the happiness, eagerness
As well as the promise of hopes.
Without fear or disappointment
You find in the unpleasant upper side of land.
I will earn more and more,
To buy me the most luxuriant shell,
Which can protect my mind and body forevermore intact.
