Some people walk in ragged shoes
Tuesday, August 08 2017 @ 01:53 PM CDT

Proper translation:

"Some people walk in ragged shoes, tell me why is that?
God our Father who lives in Heaven might want it that way,

God our Father who lives in Heaven rests peacefully asleep,
Who cares about a pair of ragged shoes when one is old and tired?

Who cares how the days go? They wander as they please,
Citizen, in a hundred years you'll be no more,

By then someone else has taken your place, but of that you won't be aware,
You feel neither rain nor sun down in your murky grave,

Who cares how the nights go? I don't care at all,
As long as I can keep my face hidden within my lover's hair,

I am a questionable character, not good for much,
'Round a corner Death stalks, he'll take me when he pleases,

Some people walk in ragged shoes, until they stop walking,
The Devil who lives in Hell has himself a good laugh then."

Thanks for the translation, Kenta.

Deep, dark, wry thoughts. Cornelis appears to be quirky and a bit eccentric... sort of like Tom Waits. Is that the case?
