Uncle Li wants to be a Red soldier
Red Army doesn’t want that uncle
Because Uncle Li’s butt is big
Too easy for Japs to spot the target

Uncle Li found the commander
The commander is also an uncle (an old guy)
Because uncle feels sorry for uncle
Uncle honorably joined the army

Uncle Li went on a mission
Got halfway up the mountain
Because Uncle Li’s butt is big
He was spotted by the Japs

Uncle Li patted his stomach and ran
Japs came up stabbing
For the revolution, for the party
Uncle Li gloriously sacrificed himself

Rain falling on pear blossoms
Tightly close the door
Yan clay is spent
Flowers falling into dust

Hoping you are an honoroed guest that understands my kindness and intention
And not a confused person who can't tell right from wrong
I did not come seeking fame and glory
I hope, Mister, that you don't let me down

Uncle Li wants to be a Red soldier
Red army doesn't want Uncle Li
Because Uncle Li’s butt is big
Too easy for Japs to spot the target

Uncle Li found the commander
The commander is also an old uncle
Because old uncle sympathizes with old uncle
Uncle Li honorably became a Red soldier

Uncle Li went on a mission
Climbed up a small hillside
Because Uncle Li’s butt is big
He was spotted by the Japs

Uncle Li slapped his butt and ran
Japs came up stabbing
For the revolution, for the party
Uncle Li gloriously sacrificed himself

For the revolution, for the party
Uncle Li gloriously sacrificed himself
For the revolution, for the party
Uncle Li gloriously sacrificed himself

Chinese lyrics

李伯伯要当红军
红军不要那伯伯
因为李伯伯的屁股大呀
容易被鬼子发现目标

李伯伯找到了团长
团长也是个伯伯
因为伯伯同情伯伯呀
伯伯就光荣参军了

李伯伯去执行任务
来到了半山腰
因为李伯伯的屁股大呀
被鬼子发现了目标

李伯伯拍肚子就跑
鬼子上来就是两刺刀
为了革命,为了党呀
李伯伯就光荣牺牲了

雨打梨花
深闭门
燕泥已尽
落花尘

但愿你是那知恩知意的心中客
不是那无是无非的糊涂人
我此来不为求功名啊
望先生你啊切莫负我情

李伯伯要当红军
红军不要李伯伯
因为李伯伯的屁股大呀
容易被鬼子发现目标

李伯伯找到了团长
团长也是个老伯伯
因为老伯伯他同情老伯伯呀
李伯伯就光荣当了红军

李伯伯去执行任务
爬上了小山坡
因为李伯伯的屁股大呀
被鬼子发现了目标

李伯伯拍屁股就跑
鬼子上来就是两刺刀
为了革命,为了党啊
李伯伯就光荣牺牲了

为了革命,为了党啊
李伯伯就光荣牺牲了
为了革命,为了党啊
李伯伯就光荣牺牲了

Alarm clock already sounded many times, how come you haven’t gotten up?
You said sleep for 5 minutes more, but it’s already been an hour
Based on your clinical symptoms
We can begin to diagnose
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer

Piled up a week’s worth of work, you put it off again and again
Leader is anxious, boss is angry, but you just keep tweeting
Based on your clinical symptoms
We can once again diagnose
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer

Dealing with modern humans, medical science is in crisis
We still don’t have an effective method of treatment
Day after day, every day wasting time, we must resort to
Cut off your wifi
Pull out your network cable
Throw out your cellphone
Turn off your feed
Now you must begin (to work)

If you can’t finish today, we won’t give you anything to eat
Next week is the test, textbook hasn’t even been touched
Will see advisor tomorrow to submit thesis, at worst you won’t sleep tonight
Based on your clinical symptoms
We can definitely diagnose
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer

Pile up for a month, no more clean clothes to wear
Room isn’t inhabitable by humans, no place to put your feet
Based on your clinical symptoms
We can begin to diagnose
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer

End of the month, rent hasn’t been paid, should be fined for (late) water and electricity (bill)
Don’t want to make food, don’t want to bathe, can’t stop (watching) TV shows
Based on your clinical symptoms
We can once again diagnose
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer

Dealing with modern humans, medical science is in crisis
We still don’t have an effective method of treatment
Day after day, every day wasting time, we must resort to
Cut off your wifi
Pull out your network cable
Throw out your cellphone
Turn off your feed
Now you must begin (to work)

If you can’t finish today, we won’t give you anything to eat
You’ve gotten fat again, you said you were going to work out, laid down the whole day
This meal doesn’t count, wait until next meal, if you don't eat your fill how can you lose weight?
Based on your clinical symptoms
We can totally diagnose
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer

Can you be saved?
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer
You ask me, but who do I ask?
We’re all late stage procrastination syndrome sufferers

Chinese lyrics

闹钟响了好几遍了你怎么不起床呢
你说再睡个五分钟可已经一钟头了
根据您的临床表现
我们可以初步诊断
您是晚期拖延症患者

攒了一礼拜的工作可是你一拖再拖
领导急了老板怒了可你还在玩微博
根据您的临床表现
我们可以再次诊断
您是晚期拖延症患者

对于这个现代人类医学难关
我们目前尚无有效治疗手段
明日复明日每天浪费时间我只能
断掉你WIFI
拔掉你网线
扔掉你手机
关掉朋友圈
现在必须给我开始

今天要是干不完就不给你吃饭
下礼拜就要考试了课本还从没碰过
明天见导师交论文大不了今晚不睡了
根据您的临床表现
我们可以确切诊断
您是晚期拖延症患者

攒了一个月了没有干净衣服能穿了
房间不是人类住的双脚都没地方搁
根据您的临床表现
我们可以初步诊断
您是晚期拖延症患者

月底了房租还没交水电费该罚款了
不想做饭不想洗澡电视剧停不下了
根据您的临床表现
我们可以再次诊断
您是晚期拖延症患者

对于这个现代人类医学难关
我们目前尚无有效治疗手段
明日复明日每天浪费时间我只能
断掉你WIFI
拔掉你网线
扔掉你手机
关掉朋友圈
现在必须给我开始

今天要是干不完就不给你吃饭
你又胖了说要去健身房可整天躺着
这顿不算下顿再说不吃饱怎么减肥呢
根据您的临床表现
我们可以完全诊断
您是晚期拖延症患者

我还有救吗
您是晚期拖延症患者
你问我我问谁呢
我们都是晚期拖延症患者

I suddenly get the urge to skip work
Stare into space, be a little lazy
But I also want to ask myself
Shouldn’t I have more resolve?

Dreams always go in a circle
But you always go back to the starting point
Shouldn’t I
Double down on my resolve?

I really have no time, no time, to eat breakfast
I have no time, no time, to exercise
I have no time, no time, to stroll through shops
I have no time, no time, really no time at all

I have no time, no time, to exercise
I have no time, no time, to see my parents more
I have no time, no time, I’m a bit annoyed
What do I always have no time?

More and more, I miss the past
Free of worries, glorious youth
But I have to still tell myself
Shouldn’t I have more resolve?

Dreams always go in a circle
But you always go back to the starting point
Shouldn’t I
Double down on my resolve?

I really have no time, no time, to eat breakfast
I have no time, no time, to exercise
I have no time, no time, to stroll through shops
I have no time, no time, really no time at all

I have no time, no time, to date
I have no time, no time, to see my parents more
I have no time, no time, I’m a bit annoyed
What do I always have no time?

I’m just left with an empty pocket
I can only stare blankly in the same place
This world changes too fast
How can I paint the future?

I’m just left with an empty pocket
I can only stare blankly in the same place
This world changes too fast
Thinking about it, I still don’t get it

I really have no time, no time, to eat breakfast
I have no time, no time, to exercise
I have no time, no time, to stroll through shops
I have no time, no time, I really have no time at all

I have no time, no time, to date
I have no time, no time, to see my parents more
I have no time, no time, I’m a bit annoyed
What do I always have no time?

More and more, I miss the past
Free of worries, glorious youth
But I have to still tell myself
Shouldn’t I have more resolve?

Chinese lyrics

突然很想 不去上班
发一发呆 偷一点懒
但是又要 问我自己
是不是要 坚强一点

梦想总是 绕一个圈
却还是要 回到原点
是不是我
还需要再坚强一点

我真的没时间 没时间 吃一顿早餐
我没时间 没时间 去锻炼锻炼
我没时间 没时间 逛一逛商店
我没时间 没时间 真的没有时间

我没时间 没时间 谈一谈恋爱
我没时间 没时间 常回家看看
我没时间 没时间 我有一点烦
为什么总是 没有时间

我越来越 怀念从前
无忧无虑 美好童年
但是又要 告诉自己
是不是要 坚强一点

梦想总是 绕一个圈
却还是要 回到原点
是不是我
还需要再坚强一点

我真的没时间 没时间 吃一顿早餐
我没时间 没时间 去锻炼锻炼
我没时间 没时间 逛一逛商店
我没时间 没时间 真的没有时间

我没时间 没时间 谈一谈恋爱
我没时间 没时间 常回家看看
我没时间 没时间 我有一点烦
为什么总是 没有时间

我只剩下 空空的口袋
我只好在 原地发呆
这个世界 变化的太快
我要怎么 画出未来

我只剩下 空空的口袋
我只好在 原地发呆
这个世界 变化的太快
我想不明白

我真的没时间 没时间 吃一顿早餐
我没时间 没时间 去锻炼锻炼
我没时间 没时间 逛一逛商店
我没时间 没时间 我真的没有时间

我没时间 没时间 谈一谈恋爱
我没时间 没时间 常回家看看
我没时间 没时间 我有一点烦
为什么总是 没有时间

我越来越 怀念从前
无忧无虑 美好童年
但是又要 告诉自己
是不是要 坚强一点

If you see that I’m ignoring you
I’m doing it on purpose
At night I still wear sunglasses
I’m still faking it

I own a small Xiali
My key chain says Audi
Going out must bring a chauffeur and assistant
Otherwise I won’t go anywhere at all

There’s one leader, he says to me
Your taste is excellent
If you listen to even more classical music
You can enter another world

I suddenly gained respect for him
I repeatedly nodded to express my approval
Suddenly his phone rang
(Can’t bear being wounded, really can’t bear being wounded)
Wow, leader! I really appreciate this classical classic song.
I pinched myself

Living in this world, people coming and going
Every shade and description
Can’t clearly discern who’s a good person
Who’s a big bad wolf

The forest is big, the birds are many
Don’t lose your bearings
People in jianghu, do what they please
When you should fake it, you must fake it

Everyone is a director of life
On occasion, make a cameo for several days
As an actor bound by the unwritten rules of life
My role is always the brightest
My costume is the most beautiful
My box office is always sold out
When I should fake it, I must fake it

In my social circle is an older woman
Every day she’s very active
In every photo expose her underwear
Everything she says is very artsy

She obviously looks like a hired thug
But she insists she looks like an actress
Even though she’s only 56
But this is everyone’s freedom

Title: 该装就装
Artist: 郝云
Link: https://youtu.be/0Kt06uxTx4Q
Translation: https://www.notion.so/3b45c2c70a2144b5a3122db6565b217d

Chinese lyrics

如果你看到我没理你
那是我故意滴
大晚上我还戴着墨镜
我就是在装(滴~)

我有一辆小夏利
我的钥匙链是奥迪
出门必须有司机助理
否则我哪儿也不去

有一位领导他对我说
你的品位很不错
如果再多听些古典音乐
就会进入另一个世界

我顿时对他心生敬意
我频频点头表示赞许
突然他的电话响起
(伤不起,真的伤不起……)
哇,领导!我特别喜欢这首古典神曲
我掐了一下我自己

活在世上人来人往
形形色色模样
分不清楚谁是好人
谁是大灰狼

林子很大,鸟儿很多
不要迷失方向
人在江湖,我行我素
该装就得装

每个人都是生活的导演
偶尔也会客串几天
被生活潜规则的演员
我的角色永远最闪亮
我的服装最漂亮
我的票房总是满满当当
我该装就得装

朋友圈里有个姐姐
每天都很活跃
每张照片都露着内衣
每句话都说的很文艺

她明明长得像个打手
可非说自己像个女优
虽然她才五十六
但这是每个人的自由

Clouds, just like wandering minstrels
Singing the wind’s song, spitting the rain’s saliva
Birds, forgot how to fly
Anyway, being in a cage isn’t tiring, can sleep soundly

Turn off cell phone, activate insect’s antennae
Let us perceive this world

Right now, close your friend feed
Close your eyes, and your mouth
Ears, can probe orientation
Let us slowly search for the distant place

Reindeer eats that lichen ah
It can’t come out of the forest ah

Information overload is like carbon in the air
Am I engaging too many senses (at once)?
Invite “Silence” on a date
Use insect’s antennae to chat with her

The ink on the page is deeper than that on a page
The music on a live stage is more real than that from earphones
After we meet in person, give me your time, ok?
After returning home, (use our cell phones to) keep in touch

Use insect’s antennae to look far afield
Use insect’s antennae to perceive this world, ok? Heh heh.

A long, long time ago
You had me, I had you
A long, long time ago
You left me to soar in a distant sky

The world outside is wonderful
The world outside is very fickle
When you think the outside world is wonderful
I'll be here sincerely wishing you well

When the evening sun sets
I'm always here longing for you
Even though the sky is filled with drizzling rain
I'll still be waiting for your return

The world outside is wonderful
The world outside is very fickle
When you think the outside world is very fickle
I'll still be here patiently waiting for you

Shana, my daughter
Darling, I love you
Shana, I’m sorry
To have brought you into this world

Even though this world
Has so much beauty
Unfortunately this world
Still has many problems

Shana, I’m powerless
To solve these problems, you’ll have to rely on yourself
Shana, you will understand
The beauty of the world is in your heart
In my heart

Shana, my daughter
Darling, I love you
Shana, I’m sorry
To have brought you into this world
In the future, this world
Will have many problems
Fortunately, there will still be beauty in our hearts

Shana, if you learn
Mercy, kindness, wisdom, determination
Shana, if you sing
You will be beautiful, you will be happy
You will understand

Sharpen knives and scissors, collect used books, fix bowls

Popsicles and ice cream bars, soymilk and deep-fried breadsticks
These are the flavors that can’t be erased from my childhood
Big bowl of sheep innards, egg with rice wine
Along with people’s customs, (these foods) have been forgotten due to the changing of the times

Old Bai at the alleyway, he’s singing a folk song
Whatever he’s singing, whatever it is, you listen
Sharpen knives and scissors, the wind is blowing the willow branches
We sit on the riverbank singing the local folk songs from that time
Sharpen knives and scissors, people from the big mountain
They smoke and smoke their water pipes, letting time slip away
Sharpen knives and scissors, my loved one
Throw away your rouge now and come with me to seek tomorrow
Sharpen knives and scissors, I’m a happy person
Even if time becomes lightning fast, I’ll still live brilliantly

Water so clear, mountain so green
This is the childhood from my dreams that I can’t return to
Winter’s kang (heatable brick bed), summers’s sun
Spring’s flowing brook, autumn’s wine
At that end of the mountain, Yellow River’s upper reaches
Comes a sound, you listen

Sharpen knives and scissors, wind is blowing on the wharf
They sit on the riverbank looking at that western mountain’s sun
Sharpen knives and scissors, people from the big mountain
They’re drinking tea from teacups with lids and gossiping about the boss family’s unexpected misfortunes
Sharpen knives and scissors, my loved one
Put aside your worries and come with me to seek your childhood
Sharpen knives and scissors, I’m a happy person
Just keep walking, don’t look back

Sharpen knives and scissors, collect used books
Collect used books, return to your hometown

Remember in my youth
Everyone was honest and sincere
Say something and that’s that

Daybreak at the train station
Long street is dark, no pedestrians
The shop selling soy milk gives off steam

In the past, the hues of sunlight changed slowly
Cars, horses, mail were all slow
A lifetime lasts long enough to love one person

In the past, locks were lovely
Keys were elegant and classy
You locked it, and everyone understood

(Bossily) I’m a badass doctor of Chinese medicine
Specialize in treating talking BS
Headache, fever, low blood pressure
Has nothing to do with me

If you want to talk BS
Why not strike an airplane (slang) instead
Not only cheap but also enjoyable
And also no pressure

Eat a bit is no big deal
Drink a bit is no big deal
People who talk BS
(They) all lack real ability

If someone is talking BS
Just find an awesome doctor of Chinese medicine
A beating of “punish five evils” fist
Beat your head until it leaks air

(Bossily) I’m a badass doctor of Chinese medicine
Driving a tractor
Running all over the country
Specialize in treating talking BS

Carrying a Dageda (huge and expensive legacy mobile phone from the 90s)
Wear a pager around my waist
Wear a pair of big boxers
Effing Yuxi cigarette dangling from mouth

(Bossily) I’m a badass doctor of Chinese medicine
All day smiling and laughing
Hear someone talking BS
Will beat them by kicking

(Bossily) I’m a badass doctor of Chinese medicine
When I go out I still take a taxi
Sometimes will find two young companions
Effing do 3P (slang)

Every day talking BS
Sooner or later will be struck by lightning
If lightning didn't strike you dead
There's still a badass doctor of Chinese medicine

Don't talk BS
Those who talk BS will be kicked
(Even more bossily) I'm a badass doctor of Chinese medicine
Specialize in treating talking BS

Just like this, day after day
Just like this, smoking
I’m burning time
Year after year

Won’t keep thinking about yesterday
Today will quickly become the past
Also won’t wait for tomorrow
Getting through today

Reflect from every day’s experience
Sing every day’s joy and sorrow
Drink a cup of coffee without sugar
Taste many flavors (within)

Maybe there are tears
Maybe there will be regret
Maybe this is what makes it perfect
There’s only one life
Time flows like water
Maybe its ephemerality is what makes it beautiful

Just like this, day after day
Just like this, staring into space
I’m enjoying time
Year after year

It’s too late to wait for yesterday
Today will quickly become the past
It’s also too late to wait for tomorrow
Got through today

This moment’s experience
This moment’s joy and sorrow
This cup of coffee without sugar
Taste even more flavors (within)

Because there are tears
Because there’ll be regrets
Because it’s like this, it can be called beautiful
There’s only one life
Time flows like water
Maybe its ephemerality is what makes it beautiful

In the night sky
So many stars
Bright one is you
Dim one is me

In the wilderness
Flowers in the wind
Red one is you
Green one is me

Between heaven and earth
So many landscapes
Blue mountain is you
Small river is me

In life
So much that is ephemeral
Cloud is like you
Cool breeze is like me

The day will come when we both leave
In turn you forget me
In turn I forget you
Thinking of this makes my heart shatter
Only that night sky’s moonlight understands me

The day will come when we both leave
In turn you forget me
In turn I forget you
Thinking of this makes my heart shatter
Only that night sky’s moonlight understands me
 
Only that night sky’s moonlight understands me

Drifting in circles
Tired of a thousand people with the same face
The day she descends to earth
What will her appearance be?
 
Deep black horizon
Unfathomable hallucinations
Long unencountered halo
In front of me, barely discernible
 
I think this time
I really fell in love with something
I think this time
My heart is harder than stone
 
Inside my hand
There’s a single rose
There’s just one chance
Want to wilt in your embrace
 
Inside my gun
There’s a single bullet
Just one swift release
Want to go through your heart
 
I want to go through
Your heart
I want you to
Constantly think of me
 
More than 40 seasons
Forgot the feeling of love
Tip of tongue is numb
Cannot taste bitterness, cannot recall sweetness
 
No matter how many years I’ve waited
No matter how long I’ve walked down the wrong road
As long as I can see
The scene from every night’s dream
 
I think this time
I really fell in love with something
I think this time
My heart is harder than stone
 
Inside my hand
There’s a single rose
There’s just one chance
Want to wilt in your embrace
 
Inside my gun
There’s a single bullet
Just one swift release
Want to go through your heart
 
I want to go through
Your heart
I want you to
Constantly think of me

The bird that flew from the desert, it told me
It's desolate there, all that's left is paleness
The bird that flew from my hometown, it told me
Mother's wrinkles are already old and gray-haired

On this kind of night, why do I always
I think of you again, the girl I abandoned
On this kind of night, why do I always
I think of you again, I think of you again

The bird that flew from the grasslands, it told me
It's grown wild there, all that's left is vastness
The bird that flew from the south, it told me
The beloved girl already has flowing long hair

On this kind of night, why do I always
I thought of you again, the girl I once loved
On this kind of night, why do I always
I think of you again, I think of you again

Baby, when you came into this world
Did you know how happy your father was?
That day I invited so many of our friends
And picked this pleasant-sounding name for you
From this moment on you will be called Zheng Qianhua!
“Qian” as in “earning money”, hua as in “spending money”
Your father is currently a pauper
Your entire future rests in your own hands!

Baby, when you came into this world
Did you know how joyful your mother was?
That day she knitted a handsome sweater
I think when you wear it will look great
From this moment on you will be called Zheng Qianhua!
“Qian” as in “earning money”, hua as in “spending money”
Your father also wants to be a macho man
Give you and your mother a warm home!

But, my baby, do you know?
How hard it is to earn money now?
Raising a child is damn hard!
Is family planning still necessary?!
Glorious motherland, she’s got a ton of money!
Does 4 trillion have anything to do with me?
Proud GDP grows with a whoosh!
Can I trade it for several disposable diapers?!

Baby, your name is Zheng Qianhua
As your father I love you, but I’m helpless
So in the future you have to rely on yourself
Your father can only give you his heartfelt blessings!
Grow up properly, don't get sick
Study hard so we can save money on education costs
When you grow up, earn money and spend it
I give you my heartfelt blessings!

What should we use to wash away
The traces left by war
A once great land is now left with nothing but devastation
What should we use to wash away
The marks left by violence
A once-glorious homeland has been razed to the ground

You turned all the people who loved you into killing robots
Make them slaughter each other so you can conquer more territory
To pompously satisfy your bottomless selfish desires
Violence has been labeled as war to uphold your so-called justice

When your beloved loses both legs on the battlefield
When he’s unable to sleep at night, shouting and crying in pain
When you fearfully wait for news and it finally becomes a death notification
Then victory in war is mockery aimed directly at you

When you’re still diligently pondering your life’s potential
When the bomb drops a second before you receive blessings
This isn’t the heavens making a senseless joke at your expense
You must start praying for the lifetime of suffering you will receive

Your people are drifting in misery, homeless and destitute
Your people are desperately searching for a way to survive
You’ve already gotten what you were striving for
But you paid a painful price in bloodshed

Your power is pushing you towards the path of no return
Your power will not allow your soul to be redeemed
Yet even if you are hacked to pieces, it won’t wash away your sins
Violence has completely turned into a berserker demon

What should we use to resist
The merciless destruction of bullets
You use the bodies of warriors to build the facade of war victory
What should we use to rouse
The deeply slumbering power
The firepower of war cannot withstand the longing for peace in people's hearts

What should we use to liberate
The power of love and peace
So that it can heal the desolation of time
To allow happiness to grow like crazy
No more casualties
No more casualties
No more people will be hurt by this

Lady Nüwa mended the heavens
A leftover rock became Mt Hua
Birds fly with their backs to that sun
Fly from the east side to the west side

Why has the sky turned grey?
Why does the earth have no green?
Why are people's hearts not red?
Why has the snowy mountain turned black?

Why does the rhino have no horn?
Why does the elephant have no tusks?
Why does the shark have no fin?
Why do the birds have no wings?

Heaven and earth keep each other company
Birds go around that sun
Mt Hua and Yellow River keep each other company
The rice in the fields bend over in laughter

Why does the desert have no oasis?
Why are the stars no longer twinkling?
Why are the flowers no longer blooming?
Why is the world devoid of color?

Why is it we know the outcome?
Why are we still being wasteful?
We must stop our forward march
(We) should restore a little color to the world

If my mighty eagle loses its wings
If my spirited horse loses its direction
If my open country becomes a barren desert
If my rivers dry up and stop flowing

Don’t let the eagle’s soaring lose its wings
Don’t let the steed’s gallop lose its direction
Don’t let your desire drown your heart
Don’t let Mother Earth convalesce in loneliness

If my highland loses its pastures
If my shepherds lose their cows and sheep
Don’t let the eagle’s soaring lose its wings
Don’t let the steed’s gallop lose its direction
I fly over grasslands, searching for heaven
I fly in the sky, sun and moon illuminate me

I fly ah, I fly ah, lonelily I fly ah
I fly ah, I fly ah, lonelily I fly ah

Heaven is calling out
Restore everlasting green to the earth
I fly ah, I fly ah
I fly ah, I fly ah
Love knows no borders

I fly ah, I fly ah, lonelily I fly ah
I fly ah, I fly ah, freely I fly ah

I lonelily fly
I freely fly
I freely fly
I fly ah, I fly ah, lonelily I fly ah
I fly ah, I fly ah, freely I fly ah

I want to waste time with you
For example, look down at fish
For example, leave tea cups on the table and walk away
Squander their good-looking shadows

I also want to squander the setting sun together with you
For example, take a stroll
Keep idling until the sky is full of stars
I also want to squander the moment when the wind rises
Sit in the hallway and stare blankly
Until the dark clouds in your eyes
Are all blown out the window

I’ve already idled away the world, it passed through me
Weariness is like never having been loved
But I still want tomorrow to be like this
Wasting time, I still want it to be like this

An eyeful of flowers and plants
Life should just as glorious as they are
The same meaninglessness, the same
Like a movie that was idled through

For example, leaning on the railing
Look down at the water’s mirror
Until all the things that have been idled away
Grow delicate wings behind our backs

I’ve already idled away the world, it passed through me
Weariness is like never having been loved
But I still want tomorrow to be like this
Wasting time, I still want it to be like this
Want us to waste each other
Together idle through brief silence, long meaninglessness
Together idle through the intricate yet aged universe

I think I should calm down to think about some words
I think I should calm down to walk a path
I think I should calm down to read a book
I just want to calm down to reflect on myself

I think I should calm down to sleep a spell
I think I should calm down to think about someone
I think I should calm down to forget those things
I just want to calm down to reflect on myself

When everything starts to calm down
Calm enough for me to hear a composed and quiet heartbeat
Calm like clouds
Calm like air
Calmly and gradually I get used to it

Darling Orpheus
Please sing a song
You pluck the lyre strings
Mountains and seas are all moved
Mesmerized by your song

Pitiable Orpheus
Please don’t cry
That despicable poisonous snake
Took away Eurydice
You narrate your grief through song

Weary Orpheus
You walked seven days and seven nights
Arrive at the foothills of Mount Tartarus
That god who can resurrect her
I want to use my sincerity to trade

The golden lyre’s light
Shines through the perpetual darkness
You lightly stroke the strings
The wandering souls
Weep sympathetic tears

Darling Orpheus
Don’t forget your promise
Eurydice is just behind you
Feel the warmth of sunlight
How could you possibly lose her again?

Pitiable Orpheus
Your song contains nothing but sorrow
He lost Eurydice forever
All that’s left is ceaseless
Longing for her

Oh my Orpheus
Those who can’t have you
Who can’t hear your song
In rage and disappointment tear you to shreds
Toss you into the sea along with the lyre

Darling Orpheus
Those streets you walked through
Nightingales circling in the air
Listen to her song
Moves you like nothing else

Something you didn’t personally ignite
That can’t be called a flame
Something you didn’t personally touch
That can’t be called a jewel
You ah you
Finally appeared
We only met by chance
This heart was smashed to pieces
The entire world completely fell apart
 
Someone who isn’t personally killed by you
Has absolutely no reason to continue living
You ah you
Finally appeared
We only met by chance
This heart was smashed to pieces
The entire world completely fell apart
 
If this life must end
Then I must die by your hands
Then I must die by your hands
Then I must die by your hands
