I want to slowly grow up
No matter how the world changes
I’m already prepared to carefully savor
All the joy and sorrow I’ll be given

Don’t get anxious, don’t panic, don’t be afraid of disappointment
Don’t always busy yourself with other people’s expectations
Wait until you understand the world, then give it your all to fight against it
Afterwards, embrace it without reservation

I want to slowly grow up
No matter how the world changes
I want to become a better me
I want to joyfully sing a song for myself

别总是忙着别人的期望

我想快乐地 为自己歌唱

Red windowsill, light taps
June rain hits palm-leaf fan
Blue umbrella, white canvas sail

I like to sleep on the train
AC is cool, no one sitting next to me, it's the best
I like to sleep on the train
Dreaming while running forward

Dududududu,
Train is rocking to and fro
Dadadadada,
Smell of boxed meals is wafting, wafting, wafting
Even though I’m wearing a mask, my stomach keeps growling
All I can do is hold my bag tightly
Keep sleeping, sleep more

Sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep
Wake, wake, wake, wake
Stop, stop, stop
Go, go, go
Everyone has a place they’re going towards

Sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep
Wake, wake, wake, wake
Stop, stop, stop
Go, go, go
Everyone has their own view

I like to sleep on the train
Sit in an aisle seat, easy to go pee, that's the best
I like to sleep on the train
Book ticket in advance to avoid worries

Chinese lyrics

我喜欢在火车上睡觉,
冷气凉凉的,旁边没人坐,最好。
我喜欢在火车上睡觉,
一边做梦,一边向前跑。

Dududududu,
火车摇啊摇啊摇,
Dadadadada,
便当味飘啊飘啊飘;
虽然戴着口罩,肚子还是一直叫,
只好紧紧抱着包包,
不断地睡着 ,再睡着。

睡啊睡啊睡啊睡,
醒啊醒啊醒啊醒,
停啊停啊停,
开啊开啊开,
每个人有自己的前方要去。

睡啊睡啊睡啊睡,
醒啊醒啊醒啊醒,
停啊停啊停,
开啊开啊开,
每个人有自己的风景。

我喜欢在火车上睡觉,
坐在靠走道,方便去尿尿,最好。
我喜欢在火车上睡觉,
早点订票,就没有烦恼。

Like an impenetrable tank
Blasting all passersby that are in the way
Who knows that the small person inside the tank
Is so powerless and weak?

Like a freakin’ awesome tank
Rolling over and crushing all uncalled-for advice
Who knows that the small person inside the tank
Is so powerless and weak?

One after another fired shell passes though time and space
Fired towards the ocean, stirs up a wave
That wave is the ocean’s derisive laughter
Laughing at me, a tank with false bravado

One after another fired shell passes though a cluster of flowers
Burned a patch of spring scenery in the countryside
That was a bloom of tender affection for me
Fondness of me for being a hypocritical tank

Like a stupid-ass tank
Intimidating all the small and weak personalities
Who knows that the small person inside the tank
Is so powerless and weak?

Like an impenetrable tank
Blasting all passersby that are in the way
Who knows that the small person inside the tank
Is so powerless and weak?

Chinese lyrics

像一个硬邦邦的坦克
炮轰所有挡路的过客
谁知道坦克中的小人
是多么的无能和脆弱

像一个牛哄哄的坦克
碾压所有多余的劝说
谁知道坦克中的小人
是多么的无能和脆弱

炮弹一发一发穿过时空
射向大海中,泛起浪花一朵
那是一朵大海的嘲笑
嘲笑我是个虚张声势的坦克

炮弹一发一发穿过花丛
灼伤了原野上的一抹春色
那是为我绽放的怜爱
怜爱我是个表里不一的坦克

像一个傻乎乎的坦克
恐吓所有弱小的人格
谁知道坦克中的小人
是多么的无能和脆弱

像一个硬邦邦的坦克
炮轰所有挡路的过客
谁知道坦克中的小人
是多么的无能和脆弱

Hey newcomer
I hear you’re stronger than me
Can run around the whole mountain in a single breath

But I
Can’t help but entrust you with some things

Owner’s driving skills are somewhat wild
Everyone calls him Dad
Gotta get used to sudden bursts of speed from rheumatic legs
And sustained, off-pitch singing

You have to get used to this family’s hubbub
They never let their voices rest
As for me, I’ve also got a nickname
Everybody’s been calling me

Dad’s junker
Rumbling along
I’ve seen countless landscapes
I’ve passed through nights and dawns

Dad’s junker
The king of the country roads
Fishing rods fill up the trunk
For music, there’s only this worn-out CD

Lalalalalala

In my body are
Little cigarette butts that are afraid of being discovered

I’ve encountered
Dad in the middle of the night
Giving himself encouragement

Little owner will open the sunroof when nobody’s looking
Straining to stick his head out like a dummy
Waving his long and skinny arms around
Want to catch the autumn wind
Don’t go too fast

Mom will drive me to go picnicking
Likes to share food with her friends
Judging from their expressions
Her cooking skills are very average

Dad’s junker
Traveler of time
I’ve seen report cards with red letters
I’ve smelled every breakfast

Dad’s junker
Now I’m a bit slow
I was once so impressive
The black ox by the field would actively get out of the way

Hear me prattle on for so long
My feelings about the past 15 years
Today is the end of my service

OK, I pass the torch to you
Please take my place and start anew
I’ll put the safety of this family in your hands

Dad’s junker
Rumbling along
I’ve laid in yellow sand and sludge
I’ve endured typhoons and torrential rains

Dad’s junker
The last drive
Hope you’re even stronger than me
Run along
Newcomer
Run along
Run along

Today, hen teacher will teach everyone how to fly
Look at how I’m doing it, this way you can dodge the eagle’s attack

Little chicks go zhazhajiji (sound of chirping), discussing at length; Teacher, may we ask, what’s an eagle?
Dummy, it’s basically a very big, very violent chicken. Is it more violent than me? Look at my punch!

Hen teacher realizes that shaving their feathers is popular among the chicks
They shave both sides; hen angrily says:
If there’s danger, how will you fly, how will you escape? Chicks impatiently say:

Why is what you say correct, do you have any evidence to back up what you say?
Why is what you do correct, could it be that you’ve eaten more rice than me?

Hen felt disheartened, so she resolved to change herself
Studiously build up her self confidence, become a star, put out a CD

Oh crap, the eagle figured out when school lets out, with a screech it dived out of the sky
But the chicks had already shaved both sides, no one had feathers, no one could escape

Receive a ransom phone call, without money the hostages will be killed
Hen teacher decides to rescue the chicks on her own
Brought weapons and all the feed, no fear of the danger

Sneakily crawl up to the eagle’s nest, head towards the sound of chicks sobbing
Oh no, the eagle caught her dead to rights, it stared with its big eyes and yelled:

I’m your fan, I have your CD
I’ve been to all your shows, please give me an autograph
Thus the eagle left completely satisfied, the chicks reverently said:

Incredibly, everything you said was correct; I’m sorry; please forgive and accept my past
Incredibly, everything you did was right, did not discern that your every action had a motivation

The wind blows her hair into disarray
It also pulls her shadow apart
Really wish it would take me along too
I don’t care if it’s only to idle time away
She says there’s a treasure in my heart
No matter what, don’t let it be destroyed
Since I fly with the wind
I don’t need to let my feet touch the ground

The wind blows
Time go back
Look, look
All the things from the past are here
The big world, does it dazzle the eyes?
It’s just, it’s just that I
Can’t ever find you again

The wind blows wrinkles into her hand
Still wish she would hold my hand for a slow walk
Walk into warm, golden-hued old days
Back then I feared neither heaven nor earth

The wind blows
Time go back
Look, look
All the things from the past are here
The big world, I’ll go there too
Wait, wait
After I’ve walked this path I’ll come

I’m still drinking her jasmine tea
I’m still singing the songs she listened to
Until her inexplicable worries become mine
Her kindness also becomes mine

The wind blows
The wind blows
Would you travel day and night
Brave the wind and waves to come into my dreams?

The wind blows my hair into disarray
I know you’re here
The next time I see you in the spring light
Please don’t leave me behind again

Would you travel day and night
Brave the wind and waves to come into my dreams?

I’ve never understood your sense of humor
So I stay silent, don’t speak much, rarely open my mouth, awkwardly smile
I’ve never understood your sense of humor
So I act aloof, it’s not like I haven’t said it before, you just can’t seem to understand

I’ve never appreciated your sense of humor, not even once
You desperately try to amuse me, act like a clown
Stop trying to amuse me, don’t think about changing me, while I still treat you as a friend
I’ve never appreciated your sense of humor, now and forever
Your remarks go too far, make jokes turn into nightmares
Stop following me, don’t think about persuading me, makes it difficult for both of us

I’ve never understood your sense of humor
So I dodge, keep a poker face, lower my head, don’t make eye contact
I’ve never understood your sense of humor
I just don’t get it, we’re clearly the same sign, why is there such a difference?

I’ve never understood your sense of humor

In my heart, spring's flowers bloom
I wait for my sparrow to slowly come home
Frog by the river, it goes gugua gugua
Look beneath the grass and lotus leaves

Clouds on the horizon keep growing and growing
Just like cotton candy, I want to eat them up
Hibernating people once again start to go jiji and zhazha
You see, spring is back, how did it come back?

Clouds on the horizon keep growing and growing
Just like cotton candy, I want to eat them up
Hibernating people one again start to go jiji and zhazha
You see, spring is back, how did it come back?

Check out spring's hundred flower fragrances (lang li ge lang li ge lang li ge lang)
Check out spring's hundred flower fragrances (lang li ge lang li ge lang li ge lang)
Check out spring's hundred flower fragrances (get spruced up and go find some girls)
That's beng beng guang guang dang dang bang bang guang guang (sound of cooking with wok)

Spring returns, little sparrows fly back from the south
Spring returns, peach blossoms, apricot blossoms, pear blossoms all bloom; little bees also come out to collect nectar
Spring has returned, the spring wind blows (it goes huhu), the spring rain falls (it goes shasha)
Little grasses become green, willow tree grows soft sprouts, willow tree grows soft sprouts

What is this song called? It's called Spring Returns!
What is this song called? It's called Spring Returns!

It’s 3 in the afternoon
I’m lying in an unfamiliar room
My journey on this planet is about to end
The doctor says maybe next season

This letter contains many characters
Right now you might not know all of them
Once you reach fourth grade, you can probably understand it
Even if you can’t understand it, you can’t ask your mom
Because what’s below is a conversation between 2 men

Grades don’t need to be too good, but you have to stick with drawing
If you really like music, then you should give it a shot
Don’t listen to those old fogeys, don’t become a boring person
You like to eat and that’s great, but don’t get too fat

You can call me Jake, Jake
You can also call me Peter, Peter
We don’t ever need to stick to those formalities
After all, we’re friends

You should be optimistic, interesting, kind
You should learn how to cook your own meals
You should quickly grow up to be a real man
At the same time don’t forget to take care of your skin

You ought to have inherited my baldness
But fortunately your dad is extremely hairy
Hope you aren’t like my son
Turned into a shuttlecock at 20
Everybody on the street could recognize him

You can start dating a little early, I think 17 is perfect
When you get in and out of cars, you should open doors; on rainy days bring a big umbrella
In your spare time, prepare some jokes; as much as possible, treat people out to eat
This is some of my experience, hope it can be of some help to you

You can call me Jake, Jake
You can also call me Peter, Peter
You can use any of the names in this world to address me
Just don’t call me waigong

You should be optimistic, interesting, kind
You should learn how to cook your own meals
You should quickly grow up to be a real man
At the same time don’t forget to take care of your skin

There’s one more thing I must ask of you
You have to promise me
You must take care of her
My daughter
My most beloved, precious little daughter
Got it?

What should you call me? Jake!
What can you call me? Peter!
We don’t ever need to stick to those formalities
After all, we’re friends
You should call me Jake, Jake!
You should call me Peter, Peter!
You can use any of the names in this world to address me
Just don’t call me waigong

You should be optimistic, interesting, kind
You should learn how to cook your own meals
You should quickly grow up to be a real man
At the same time don’t forget to take care of your skin

You can use any of the names in this world to address me
Just don’t call me waigong again

It’s time to attend the masquerade ball
Use a mask to cover your face
Look upon the center of the dance floor
Release your inner fantasy

It’s time to attend the masquerade ball
Dress hems rise up in the midst of desire
She's the star of tonight
Until she completely exhausts her strength

It’s time to attend the masquerade ball
Just spin in solitude like this
Burn up all my frenzy
Lose sight of the way to happiness

It’s time to leave the masquerade ball
Strangers start to get weary
You try to change your steps
But there are no more familiar dances

It’s time to leave the masquerade ball
There’s a person in the corner sobbing
She doesn’t have pretty dance shoes
And no way to close her eyes

It’s time to leave the masquerade ball
Go search for the vast lake
Over there is the tranquil lake surface
Can see myself in the reflection
Where’s the tranquil lake surface
Where I can see myself in reflection?

I like the sun of a mild winter
I like the first grass of spring
I like the courtyard in the afternoon and the idle swings to the side
I like midsummer's slushies
I like a clear autumn night’s bright moon
A pleasant evening sky, full of stars

I like the frogs that appear after the rain
I like the apricot flowers in front of the mountain
I like dusk on Wednesday, the twilight-kissed aquarium
I like the flocks of wild ducks
I like disorderly bookshelves
Cool breeze on the balcony, sea of lights in the distance

I like walking on Highway 96 when there are no people around
I like Takuya Kimura's long locks
I like the deer sprinting on boundless fields
I like the banyan tree in front of Grandma's house

I like Mom's lunch box
I like Dad's stubble
I like the amusement park that's still open in the August evening
I like the bell that signals the end of school
I like when the power goes out a night
Light a pair of candles in the quiet vestibule

I like the distant green hills seen from the edge of town
I like the hot air balloons flying in the western sky
I like the cobblestone road in the early morning
Steam-emitting breakfast diners, Ah Gong's osmanthus cake
I like every evening cloud, every green tree

I like you
You ought to know already
I like you
You ought to know already

If I knew I’d be staying at home so long
I wouldn’t just buy two packs of Red Lanzhou
If I knew the village roads would be blocked
I should’ve spent more time with the honeys

If I knew I’d be staying at home so long
I wouldn’t have bought a new outfit during spring festival
If I knew the village roads would be blocked
I shouldn’t have rented a car to go home and pretend to be rich

If I knew I’d be staying at home so long
I shouldn’t have given my mahjong set to a friend
If I knew the village roads would be blocked
I would fill a barrel full of liquor

If I knew I’d be staying at home so long
I wouldn’t have spent 500 on a perm
If I knew the village roads would be blocked
I should’ve taken a girl out to party hard

I fall down on the wild mountain side

Grass kisses my feet
Kei mo la jin na jiu kei mo la jin na jiu

Since a potato’s composition
Is mostly a bunch of starch
You shouldn’t try to
Compare it with spinach in terms of vitamin A

You can use it with hot peppers to stir fry
A plate of vinegary julienned potato
So umami, spicy, fresh, crispy
You can totally treat it as a staple food

It also contains vitamin A
Has more thiamine than spinach
Stores a long time without spoiling

Since summer is a
Hot and suffocating season
You shouldn’t try to
Compare it with winter in terms of coolness

During the hottest time at noon, you can go out for a walk
Get some sun, sweat, detoxify, enliven blood circulation
Don’t ever need to spend money steaming in the sauna

Got some exercise, distracted oneself a bit
Also became familiar with the surrounding area
Got some exercise, distracted oneself a bit
Also became familiar with the surrounding area

Since the kid will grow up
You can’t stop it no matter what you do
Then you shouldn’t treat him
Like you would treat a Pekinese dog

Let him mistakenly believe this world
Is both refreshingly cool and warm
Basically it’s as if you took a frog
And put it into a pot filled with cold water that you slowly heat up

Flame burns ever more brightly, water gets ever hotter
Until he slowly loses perception

Since I told you that I love you
And you still don’t love me
Then why not just stay silent
And board a random train

Who cares if it’s headed towards a city
Or a small village
Anyway that place will always have
An unremarkable girl just like me

I’m waiting, I’m waiting
Her worries are waiting for me
I’m waiting, I’m waiting
Her worries are waiting for me

No more comets streaking across the universe
No more sunlight to dazzle the afternoon
No more people to sing the praises of freedom
We all boarded this ship
How far can it fly?
The people I love
Say farewell to you

I fly into the universe
Drift towards doomsday
Forgive my mistakes
All absurdities
Fade away behind that nebula

I fly towards the universe
Away from this flood
Let it go
Leave it all behind
Give yourself a shot of
The gentlest revenge

Monologue spoken in Old Florentine

I fly into the universe
Can I be saved
After saying farewell
Freedom and conquest
Were both utterly destroyed at the end

I fly into the universe
Drift towards doomsday
Redeem my mistakes
All absurdities
Fade away behind that nebula

I fly towards the universe
Away from this flood
Finally, I’m the only one left
I have nothing
Doomsday spaceship
Carries my bones

Camellia flower’s thick leaves embrace her, keeping her warm
Camellia flower rolled inside the bud, hiding her bashful face
Gentle wind caressing her
Gaze at morning mist, smile upon sunset clouds
These mountains and rivers culminate in her stamen, slowly alchemize

By mountain streams, grow up bathing in sunlight
She’s swaying and dancing in the wind
Blooming into white blossoms by the cliff
She’s stirring up the fragrant soil

After the rain, talk to rainbows
Wind blows dry the dewdrops on her cheeks
Unfolding the painting of autumn
Even if the season is changing, why worry?

Camellia flower dreams of a pair of wings, let’s take flight tonight
As the first snow drifts down, camellia flower’s petals fly away on the wind

In my distant memory, there was a long-forgotten poem, it went like this
Courtyard abrim with flowers and trees, on the outside a small, fragrant path
Side by side for four seasons, cut paper together on sunny days

When I was very very little, there was once a siheyuan (enclosed courtyard compound)
There lived myself and Nainai, along with a colorful cat
Back then, the small courtyard was full of flowers, underneath the stairs was green grass
My tiny hands held a book of 300 Tang and Song Dynasty poems

Nainai would teach me how to recite them, "white goose cranes its neck toward heaven and sings"
Once the sun was bright, she’d also teach me paper cutting
That’s the most unforgettable part of my past, it often appears in my dreams
So afterwards when I learned how to write, I wrote this poem

Courtyard abrim with flowers and trees, on the outside a small, fragrant path
Side by side for four seasons, cut paper together on sunny days

We aren’t named Xiaojuan
Pseudonym is our last line of defense
News about society, sensationalized headlines
Photos with both eyes pixelated

Nightingale becomes mute, you all put in a lot of effort
Those who dare to disobey, they're always being punished
By fist, by gasoline, by sulfuric acid
By head-shaving, by glares, by keyboards

At the end, how will we be recorded by you?
Quarrel, traitor, demon, whore, frequent prostitutes, commit adultery, prostitute, prostitute, slave
Deceive, greedy, sycophantic, absurd, play, resent, hinder, jealousy, envy
Contempt on display, embed into skulls

Hide my name, forget my name
The same tragedy keeps getting acted out
Imprison my body, sever my tongue
Silently embroider my tears into silks and satins

Oh~~~
Flush into the sewer, from the bridal chamber sink into the riverbed
Stuff full the suitcase, store in the balcony freezer
In the school, in the factory, by the side of the road
The “good place” chosen by the one who shares your bed

At the end, how will you subdue us?
Quarrel, traitor, demon, whore, frequent prostitutes, commit adultery, prostitute, prostitute, slave
Deceive, greedy, sycophantic, absurd, play, resent, hinder, jealousy, envy
Spirit circumcised, merge into blood and bone

Hide my name, forget my name
The same tragedy keeps getting acted out
Imprison my body, sever my tongue
Silently embroider my tears into silks and satins

Oh~~~
We aren’t named Xiaojuan
Pseudonym is the last dignity we get
Over tea and meals, topics to idly chat about
Quickly toss them to the side

Know my name, remember my name
The same tragedy, when will it finally stop?
Lay my body to rest, smoothen my brow
Silently use tears to wipe clean my gravestone

Know my name, remember my name
The same tragedy, why does it continue?
Bury my beautiful dream, sew up my spirit
Silently use tears to inscribe my gravestone
Oh~~~

Faraway stars fall, ding dong
Toward the wild plains of another place
Open eyes, capture a flash of light

In dreams, construct a hundred labyrinths
The season walks forward, weaving me
Sealing me within a soft white cell

Want to break free, because I was hesitant before
Hasten the birth of a new me

A strand, a millimeter, a centimeter forward
Surreal world just like a forest
Unable to pass through the mountain peak’s rain

Wind comes, wind goes, wind is chanting
Time brings great changes, but no longer than a lifespan
Cannot recite time’s poetic verse

The last time, one more time
Go listen
Fly over here, bury it in
Metamorphose

Eternity
Extinguished
The butterfly

Without sight
Look back
Without words

Hallucination
Annihilation
The butterfly
At the end
Fly away
Fly far

Ever since the day I started forming memories
I’ve lived like a damn good-for-nothing
Suck at studying, can’t win at fighting
Tell me what I’m supposed to do
I go home, old man tells me
You gotta study hard, be an upright person
If you’ve got nothing better to do, watch the news, pay attention to national issues
When you graduate, take the civil service exam
After returning to my room, I thought it over
Can’t help but feel that this isn’t appropriate
I’m an artsy dude, why become a civil servant?
I’ve got a dream I want to achieve
Fast forward 20-some years, graduated from college
Then I found out the ground is covered with artsy dudes
I can only take up my guitar, bravely face life
In my heart, quietly say to myself

My youth is gone, it took away my childhood
Think back to my early days, we caught long-horned beetles in willow trees and fought
My youth is gone, it can’t take away my memories
Look, under the sun, by the pond, the buck naked one is me

People don’t dare believe how fast time goes by
They say that the end of the world is near
I still want to marry a girl, give myself to the revolution
Tell me is this possible?
Look at the post-80s generation, the so-called miserable youths
Working their asses off for houses and cars
Salaries aren’t increasing, cost of living goes up faster than Liu Xiang
Who decided that my dad isn’t Li Gang?

My youth is gone, it took away my childhood
Think back to my early days, we caught long-horned beetles in willow trees and fought
My youth is gone, it can’t take away my memories
Look, under the sun, by the pond, the buck naked one is me
My youth is gone, it took away my dreams
I wish that when I raise my head, what I see is the chalk thrown at me by the teacher
My youth is gone, it can’t take away my faith
Another 30 years and we’ve all got white hairs
Let’s continue screaming rock ‘n’ roll

We're all infected by the virus
No one needs a face mask anymore
In February of early spring, on the grass
We hold a farewell gathering

Fine wine and delicacies have already been prepared
And we can't do without music
From the accordion's keys flow
An elegant viral waltz

We smile and look at each other
We hold each other and delicately start the dance
Go towards the front (there's really no front)
Glide into effortless, graceful dance steps

The world is so big, why did we meet? Could it be we’re siblings? Could it be we’re related?

Today is February 14th, the legendary Valentine’s Day
All the couples on the street will celebrate the holiday today
Usually roses sell for 2 bucks each
Tonight it’s 10 times that, girls will still grin from ear to ear

Today is February 14th, the legendary Valentine’s Day
I'm going to go home and be alone, nothing better to do than read a book and eat instant noodles
But some numbskull on QQ asks me, why am I still alone
I couldn’t help but shout back this cordial response

I wish that all the lovers in the world are siblings that have been separated for many years
I wish that all the movie theaters and restaurants have no seats
I wish that all the lovers in the world are siblings that have been separated for many years
No matter if it’s Motel 168, Home Inn, 7 Days Inn, or Hanting, it’s impossible to reserve a bed

Go and celebrate your Valentine’s Day, apricot flowers extend over the wall (metaphor for affair)
Go and celebrate your Valentine’s Day, what to do about accidental pregnancy?
Go and celebrate your Valentine’s Day, apricot flowers extend over the wall (metaphor for affair)
Go and celebrate your Valentine’s Day, what to do about accidental pregnancy?

It’s not that I’m careless, it’s just that true love is hard to resist
It’s not that I harbored intentions, it’s just that I couldn’t guard myself

I wish that all the lovers in the world are siblings that have been separated for many years
I wish that all the movie theaters and restaurants have no seats
I wish that all the lovers in the world are siblings that have been separated for many years
No matter if it’s Motel 168, Home Inn, 7 Days Inn, Hanting, Super 8, Holiday Inn, WeHotel, Greentree, or Crystal Orange, it’s impossible to reserve a bed

Go and celebrate your Valentine’s Day, apricot flowers extend over the wall (metaphor for affair)
Go and celebrate your Valentine’s Day, what to do about accidental pregnancy?
Go and celebrate your Valentine’s Day, apricot flowers extend over the wall (metaphor for affair)

Disaster in Mud Village, inside my aunt’s brain, inside my heart, inside my song
Disaster in Mud Village, inside my aunt’s brain, inside my heart, inside my song
In my dream, in my heart, in my song

We live on a hillside of the steppe
Beautiful skies, a fine life
One day, a big wild wolf appeared
Its wounds were terribly severe

You say, let’s heal him
I know you would think this way
Of course, anyway we don’t have any friends
Therefore the wolf became our friend

One day, I was eaten by the wolf
On the steppe where we often played
He said I was an extremely delicious meal
I said, you’re welcome

No problem, no problem, you can eat it for my sake
But take care not to eat too much
Thank you for taking this sweet revenge for me
Then can I humbly request that you
Devour his body and spirit
Let me become you

Title: 住进狼胃里
Artist: 昏鸦
Link: https://youtu.be/4s8J8zti8qw
Translation: https://www.notion.so/7718ebe1acf842c69eab109bedd3cfd5
Chinese lyrics
我们住在草原的山坡上
天空美丽,生活美好
有一天来了一只大野狼
它受了很重很重的伤

你说我们来医治它吧
我也知道你会那么地想
当然好阿,反正我们也没有朋友
于是狼成为了我们的朋友

有一天我被狼吃掉了
在我们常玩耍的草原
它说我是非常美味的一餐
我说别客气

可以可以的,你可以为我吃掉它
但小心别吃太饱了喔
谢谢你为我完成这甜蜜复仇
那就再麻烦你
吃掉它的身体和灵魂
让我成为你

This world is too crowded
I have a small vegetable plot
This place is far from the 107
No smog or car fumes

My home isn’t in the big city
No need to smile at everyone you meet
No need to strive for money and power
I just need to make sure my tomatoes are clean

You take a Bombardier to go up in the air
My tomatoes are clean
When you land you drive a Ferrari
My tomatoes are clean

You wear a Rolex on your wrist
My tomatoes are clean
You wear Hermès around your waist
My tomatoes are clean

This world is too crowded
I have a small vegetable plot
This place is far from the 107
No smog or car fumes

My home isn’t in the big city
No need to smile at everyone you meet
No need to strive for money and power
I just need to make sure my tomatoes are clean

Your body is covered in Boucheron
My tomatoes are clean
You’ve sprayed Chanel from top to bottom
My tomatoes are clean

Tonight you’re lodging in the Burj Al Arab
My tomatoes are clean
You serve Martell at a fancy party
My tomatoes are clean

My tomatoes are clean
My tomatoes are clean
My tomatoes are clean
My tomatoes are clean
