Give You A Bottle of Nectar From The Kingdom of Heaven

I

Give you a bottle of nectar from the kingdom of heaven
Let your flowers of soul blossom
Let your bones be white and transparent
Let you bathe in music of the kingdom of heaven
There will be no more earthly night
Let you forget that fragrance of soul
That’s in your home of soul
That giant’s yourself that are sweet and free.

II

The strings of heavenly gems
Embedded on your golden crown
You are the giant’s king from the of the Kingdom of Gold
Your land is vaster than billions of seas.

Our Souls are Free and Magical

Our souls are free and magical
Which can reach many heavens without wings
Every Kingdom of Heaven has sweet memories
Oh, where there’s no the word of death
To protect your childhood sun
The teenager’s starry sky is light from the Kingdom of Heaven
And in the deep of your bones
old gods are smiling at you
Their words are music from the Kingdom of Heaven


赠你一瓶天国的琼浆

赠你一瓶天国的琼浆
让你的灵魂之花绽放
让你的骨骼洁白透明
让你沐浴那天国的乐曲
再也没有尘世的黑夜
让你遗忘那灵魂的芬芳
那在你的灵魂的家园
那甜蜜自在的巨人的自己

这一串串天国的宝石
镶嵌在你的金冠之上
你是那黄金之国巨人的王
你的国土巨大胜过亿万座海洋

我们的灵魂自由而神奇

我们的灵魂自由而神奇
不需要翅翼而能抵达诸多的天国
每一座天国都有甜蜜的记忆
哦 在那儿没有死亡这个词语
保护好你的童年的太阳
那少年的星空是天国的光芒
而在你的骨骼深处 古老的
诸神向你微笑
他们的话语是天国的乐曲
