World Lampshade (English lyrics)

Lyrics (feel free to use as long as you credit Froggie):
It’s been so long since, I have smiled
I even forgot my faults for a while…
“But I don’t really mind,
I would rather go blind and die
Turning into nothing more than dust by your touch than regret”
Or so you said.
What happens then?

The you who cursed this world to no ends
Had learned to smile wide as a pretense
It only made it worse
Hating yourself it’s like a curse
Standing there and watching you it made me feel even more hurt

I would rather stay far away
‘Cause hypocrisy, isn’t the path I’d choose, okay?
and I wanted to know
Can I scream out loud?
To confirm my place and know my life is allowed

This world is all full of lies, everything
God whispers in my ears, those words, they’re still ringing
I try to call your name
With my weak frame
The rib cage rattles with the sounds I proclaim
But I know somewhere inside of you
A thirty-six degree sound, burns true

I try to see what I can. Not. See
I try to not see what, that I can see
We’re selfish as we are
The breathing becomes really hard
When we are alone, I came to know and value that part

I was not aware that you had
Found what had made me sad
The genuine me wants to fly
As far away and up into the black and starry night sky

Let us all just move fast
Forget the gloomy past
Just let it go
Please don’t say no
A smile that is not for show?

I am lighting up this worthless and hopeless world
With nothing more than a lamp in me that unfurled
If I turn into ashes and I mix rain
that falls down around you, give me your pain

This world is all full of lies, everything
God whispers in my ears, those words, they’re still ringing
I try to call your name
With my weak frame
The rib cage rattles with the sounds I proclaim
If I fall into bits, it’s okay
Because I know that this time, I will say

Oh, please don’t forget, promise me
A 36 degree breath quickens
Those lamps that are inside us
Burns anew
