There's a Much Larger World in the Body
There's a much larger world in the body
this is the secret that the ancient sages have told you.
Listening to the light pass through your body and play Guqin in your bones
noticed an old man, who was 30000 years old, sitting in a palace on
the mountains top.
There is an island in the depths of the ocean,
the goddess was so brilliant before the world had been born.
Her eyes will make you forget the sadness,
for an instant, take you through those free and unfettered days outside.
