I bought this amulet
Because I am afraid of death
Because you are my best friend
I am afraid that will end

I bought this talisman
Made from a lion's skin
Once free and beautiful king
I hope we don't end up like him

The more it grows
The more it dies
The more you know
The less you try

You bought some cigarettes
Because you're ignorant of death
Because you think if you're fearless
Even death would be impressed

I bought this talisman
Made from a lion's skin
Once fierce, now silent and still
You remind me of him

The more it grows
The more it dies
The more you know
The less you try

    General CommentINCREDIBLE song

    but I think it's
    "once free, a beautiful king"


    "You bought some cigarettes
    Because you're ignorant of death"
    "Even death will be impressed"

    and

    "Once fierce, now silent and still"

    little things but they affect the meaning
