Posted in Uncategorized on December 28, 2007 by damartriadi

Dance among the stars, shine among the suns
Existence among entities, blast into the skies among the clouds
I am those who run with the Saints, prostate with the Angels
Lies helplessly like piles of dust blown by the wind

Drunken with wine, lost all awareness
Dancing  like a mad lover, with beers in Bavarian glasses
Who cares bout considerations, when there’s nothing left to thought
Sublime awareness, subconscious soul, deep in the rhythm of soul

This is a lover, levitated with separation, deprived of reunion
Like a dog to its master, sitting loyalty until the train arrives
Die in the cold snowy station is better loved
Than bitter abandonment of treason or neglected

Blame the world for separation,
Wait the morning star for reunion,
I am those who unwilling to live in lonesome
Like a champagne that lost its wine
