Open inbox, it's full of messages about cancelled events
All of our rehearsals, toss them into the ocean
(I'm so poor, no work, eat dirt!!)
An unlucky year, everyone needs to be careful
To survive, work for Uber Eats

Quarantine at home, isolate at home, practice self-discipline
Idiots running around, get your butts back home
(Idiots, get your butts back home)
Still have face masks, you ought to be grateful
(Please, got it)
We should listen to Shizhong’s words; we believe in you, Lijun

(Give us some financial bailouts)
We’ve prepared a new work
(We released a new album)
But we can’t sell any at all
(But you can buy swag)
Everyone’s stockpiling goods, we're stockpiling albums
Next month’s rent, how to keep living?

Performers that eat dirt
Performers that eat dirt
No one’s got it good, everyone feels terrible
I’m also not overstating how poor I am

Performers that eat dirt
Performers that eat dirt
After this is over, if we could invite you to see one more performance
For our next meal, add an extra piece of meat

Everyone’s got it rough
Hope everyone’s OK
Can’t keep going on like this
Let it be over soon!

For our next meal, add an extra piece of meat

Chinese lyrics

打开信箱都是活动取消的讯息
付出的练习全部投在海里
(我好穷,没工作,吃土啰!!)
流年不利,人人都要小心
为生存打工去做uber eats

居家检疫,居家隔离,自主管理
乱跑的北七,还不滚回家去
(北七,滚回家)
还有口罩,你应该心存感激
(拜托啦,知道吗)
时中的话要听,丽君我们信任你

(纾困辅助过一下)
我们准备了新的作品
(我们出新专辑了喔)
但是全部都卖不出去
(但你可以买周边喔)
大家囤货,我们囤专辑
下个月的房租,该怎么活下去

吃土的表演工作者
吃土的表演工作者
谁也不好过,每个人都难受
我也不是夸张地在哭穷

吃土的表演工作者
吃土的表演工作者
如果可以请你之后多看一场演出
为我们下一餐,加一块肉

大家辛苦啦
希望大家平安
活不下去啦
快点结束吧!

为我们下一餐,加一块肉
