The milkmoons dwell in their quiet shell
Where they fell from the Heaven
Two pearl fishermen
Hold their breath again
Fight to the death again... for the same price

Oh my brother, one of us loses
One must drown and the other she chooses
The jade of the blue offers diamonds to you,
But you find it's not true when the sun sets.
You dive far below,
Where the sun doesn't go,
Where your brother won't know,
And you hear her saying:
"Oh my lover, now that you've found me,
Now your brother is bound to be drowned,
I don't know why you feud over me,
All those pearls lay asleep on the sea bed..."

The pearl in his hand,
She's just a grain of sand,
She's dressed up as snow in the moonlight,
She's porcelain on the sallow skin,
He's been taken in by illusion...

Oh my brother, we're both of us losers
I don't know why she ever did choose us
To call one her lover,
And bury the other,
So I'll hold my breath 'till
The story is over...
