Translated by Yuanbing Zhang

Giant‘s Kingdom of Gold

Every day is like living in a dream land, a world you call the only one
When you retreat to your soul, you discover another me
No one can hurt you for you exist not in time but in paradise
Where the king of the giants is awaiting your return in his golden palace
A kingdom of gold created in prehistoric times, just like you.

Paradise of Sweet Light From Outer Space

Protect the sun in your body, the palace surrounded by numerous stars
The joyful wine, the souls of the people, like the eyes of prehistoric gods,
Like poems of the dawn that are as charming as diamonds.
Oh, the golden country in your being is wider than the universe,
The invisible paradise of sweet light from outer space,
Which makes the raiment of the world twirl gracefully
And fall like autumn leaves to the forest floor.

巨人的黄金之国

每一天都是幻境而你把世界称作唯一​
当你偶尔与灵魂相伴恍然忆起那另一个自己​
哦沒有谁能把你伤害那真实的你在时间之外那天国之上的乐园​
而那巨人之王在一座金殿之上等侍你的归来他是史前的你自己创造了巨人的黄金之国​​

甜蜜之光的天外之乐园

守护好你身体里的太阳以及众多星辰环绕的王宫​
那史前诸神的眼睛里荡漾灵魂的欢喜之酒那钻石般迷人的黎明之诗​
哦你身体里的黄金之国比宇宙更辽阔的隐形的甜蜜之光的天外之乐园​
让这个世界的繁华之衣犹如一枚秋天之林木飘洒的斑斑斓斓的小小之红叶​

Flame of The Kingdom of Heaven

On a summer night this year I bathed in cool moonlight on a hill,
The lights of the city below glowed like fireflies
I heard the roar of the dragon car driven by prehistoric gods across the sky
The heavenly experience was one of light and transparency
My head was filled with a great many stars.

Brilliant Scriptures

Ask yourself if you are really alive and beyond pain and pleasure
Where Death is just a platform, where you will debus and wait for another dawn.
When the golden car of the soul will return from the red clouds in outer space,
Felicitations, you return to the palace of the kings in heaven.
And you will read from the book of gold that illuminates the world,
Brilliant scriptures inscribed by the gods billions of years ago.

天国的光焰

今年的一个夏日之夜我在山丘之上沐浴月光之淸凉
脚下的城市灯火沸腾如浓郁的一杯芬芬之烈酒
我恍惚听到史前的诸神回荡于天外的龙车之啸吟之声
而巨多的星辰之上那天国的光焰甜蜜透明了我的头颅

煌煌经卷

问一下自己是否真的活著而快乐和痛苦之外是灵魂的王国
死亡只是一个站台你将在那儿下车而等待你的也许是另一个黎明
当灵魂的金车自天外的红云之上飞来恭喜你回到了天堂的王者之宫
而一部黄金之书将照亮尘寰那是诸神亿万年前留给明天的煌煌经卷
