Bạn có biết sợ không

I don't like to bull shit,
since it's all sorts of 
indiscretions

I want nothing but 
drown in your vernacular,
and here in I'm a thief

Aren't you afraid!

Tôi không thích chém gió, 
vì nó 
là một nguồn tội lỗi

Tôi chỉ muốn chết đuối 
trong ngôn ngữ của bạn
vì ở nơi đây 
tôi là một kẻ trộm 

Bạn có biết sợ không!
