THE GOLDEN CAR OF THE SOUL

I drew the feathers of times
To make you see
What beautiful is the music of the gods
As gorgeous as the gold car of the soul

灵魂的金车 

我画出时光的羽毛
为了让你看到
诸神的乐曲何等亮丽
绚烂如灵魂的金车

AS SMALL AS TO ZERO

In the palm of infinition
Everyone is a moment
Even as small as to zero

小到为零

无限的手掌上
每个人都是一瞬间
甚至小到为零
