• 城市的生活

    词曲及演唱:许多

     

    透过一个加班女工布满血丝的眼睛

    透过地摊小贩四处逃散的无奈

    透过站在楼顶上讨要工钱的人们

    透过五环外的出租房重新看看这城市

     

    透过若干年前那个收容的制度

    透过落叶一般从机器上掉下的手指

    透过黑色矿井下生死未卜的人们

    让一切虚伪和不公都统统地滚吧

     

    城市到处在叫卖欧洲般高雅的生活

    叫卖彩票和超女这些海市蜃楼般的梦想

    叫卖他们的欲望和那些令人致幻的包装

    叫卖我们这些廉价但经久耐用的商品

     

    别以为这个世界就注定只能是这样

    别以为贫穷的人们就可以轻易被抹杀

    别以为你们的把戏真能将人给糊弄

    让一切虚伪和不公都统统地滚吧

     

     

    City Life

     

    Lyric and Music: Xu Duo

     

    Through the red-eyed woman workers working overtime,

    Through the small street vendors who run for escape when policemen come,

    Through the workers standing on a roof of a high-rise threatening to jump if their salary is not to be paid,

    Through the small low houses rented to the migrant workers outside the fifth-ring road,

    We have to take a second look at the city.

     

    Through that recently abolished migrant detaining regulation,

    Through that finger cut off by a machine like a falling leave,

    Through the miners in the dark pit risking their life at any moment,

    Let all hypocrisy and unfairness get out of the way.

     

    Salespersons are hawking the European life-style,

    Hawking lottery and “super-girl competition”, these dreams are mirages,

    Hawking their desires, with fancy packaging,

    Hawking us, the cheap and durable goods.

     

    Just do not think that the world will stay like this,

    Just do not think that the poor can be easily written off,

    Just do not think that your trick can cheat all of us,

    Let all hypocrisy and unfairness get out of the way.
