Son Nguyen - "Lake of Tranquility"

Twirl around within the same place
With a hypnotizing voice and an elegant face.
Plunge thy self deep into oblivion
For ye shall punish thy transgression.

Whispers enunciate words and rumors
Of a lake, where thou shalt seek with valor.
For its unknown name, many entitled "Lake of Tranquility"
If thou art heroic enough to venture into iniquity.

Hold thy tongue of courageous words
Before entering a mysterious world.
Thou wilt realize what bathes in the water
When thy deceit is irrevocably uncovered.

Many state thou cannot wander
If thy bitterness and trickery are vaster.
If thou art alive, thou shalt attain
An eternal life that will never end.

Though, there is a negotiation
That thou hast to make with dedication.
No words of dishonesty, no cowardice
Only actuality thou wilt suffice.

Is thy loved one more pitiful than thy life
To be sacrificed as an act of vile?
Dost thou worship eternity more than love?
No tenderness or ardor will be praised high above.

Ponder again and ponder again
As there is no such eternity to gain.
The "Lake of Tranquility" is a temptation
To forbid thy dearest aspiration.
