Akira Yamaoka – Sun lyrics
In the beginning people had nothing
Their bodies ached and their hearts held nothing but hatred
They fought endlessly, but death never came
They dispaired, stuck in the eternal quagmire
A man offered a serpent to the sun, and prayed for salvation
A woman offered a reed to the sun, and asked for joy
Feeling pity for the sadness that had overrun the earth, god was born from those two people
God made time and divided it into day and night
God outlined the road to salvation and gave people joy
And god took endless time away from the people
God created beings to lead people in obediece to her
The red god, Xuchilbara
The yellow god, Lobsel Vith
Many gods and angels
Finally, god set out to create paradise where people would be happy just by being there
But there, gods strength ran out and she collapsed
All the worlds people grieved this unfortunate event
Yet god breathed her last
She returned to the dust, promising to come again
So god hasn't been lost
We must offer our prayers and not forget our faith
We wait in hope for the day when the path to paradise will be opened
