Track Name: Cosmic Run / 宇宙跑
Travel through space
Beyond the speed of light
穿越时空
超越光速

Create
Destroy
创造毁灭

Visions shift
Colours blur
视线偏离
颜色模糊

Time strand inside of mind
时间在心中搁浅

My feelings are not ignored
My mood are not affected
My life has no change
我的感受没有被忽略
我的心情没有受影响
我的生活没有改变

Waking up in the jungle morning
Waking up with you
Running down to the river side
Dance to the music

My appearance has long since gone
My existence stays in a flash
My destination is at infinity
我的模样早已不见
我的存在只是瞬间
我的终点在无限远

Waking up in the jungle morning
Just a man-made concrete
Track Name: Deep Groove / 深沟
Compress, compress, compress
Compressed my thoughts
压缩、压缩、压缩
压缩我的思想

Learn, learn, learn
Learned to be silent
学会、学会、学会
学会了沉默

What do you want from life
There is no escape from that
想要什么样的生活
生活没解脱

But I want to break free
From all the constraints
可是我想要挣脱
挣脱所有约束

Me, you
And all we have
我、你
我们的所有

Symbolised
Stay or die
都化成符号
留下或死去

Born in the 90s with the right
of excessive consumption
Even buying the sky cannot fulfil
the lost spirits amongst these
reinforced-concrete
出生在九十年代
过度消费的权利
把天空买下
也不能填满
钢筋水泥里走失的灵魂

In this beautiful new world
Flesh and Internet shall get connected
Let signals and codes manufacture
美丽的新世界
让血肉和网络相连
让信号和代码制造

The new tomb
新的坟墓

Oh us
哦 我们
Track Name: Jiàng Luò / 降落
Gaze at the hysterical self
as if an insignificant past
看着眼前歇斯的我
似乎无所谓的过去

The departing and vanishing
self is tortured while resisting time
离去与消逝的自我
折磨着在抗拒时间

Stuck in a locked out vacuum
像在一个打不开的
没有东西的真空里

Are you awake
What are you doing
你还醒着吗
你在做什么

Take off
Landing
起飞
降落

Where are you getting off
Where is your landing ground
起飞去什么地方
降落在何处

A full stop and miracle are drawn
Forget about past memories
画上了句号与奇迹
忘却我的过去记忆

Meanings given by those
mysterious symbols
神秘符号给予的意义

Erased
抹去

Stand around many places
and stare into the sky
Think of things and save faith
in my pocket
站在很多地方看着天空我在仰望
想起很多事情把信念装进口袋

Past in the cracks
Past in the haze
Past in the forgotten memories
我的过去在缝隙里
我的过去在阴霾里
我的过去在忘记的记忆里
Track Name: Drowning / 淹没
Problems occurred in my world
我的世界出了问题

In this dream I ran out of breath
在梦里失去了呼吸

Today soon will be gone
今天很快就要过去

A mind without a life vest
suffocates in ice cold liquid
心态没有救生外衣
在冰冷液体里窒息

Tell me the truth
Of which text is not a lie
告诉我事实的真相
哪些文字不是谎言

Drown me
把我淹没
Track Name: Ksana / 刹那之间
Every blurry image
Teared apart in an instant
所有
模糊的画面
都在瞬间撕裂

I was too, afraid of this moment
我也害怕这瞬间

The split-second moment
刹那之间

Every story from the past
Kept repeating itself
所有
过往的故事
都在不断重演

I was too, need some changes
我也需要些改变

The split-second moment
刹那之间

Just wanted to bid farewell
to everything
想要送走一切

I love the sea the sky and you
But sometimes we just know
nothing at all

I wish I could touch the sunshine
and moonlight and you
Sometimes we just fall in love
Sometimes we know nothing at all

The split-second moment
刹那之间
Track Name: Inner Riot / 自我暴乱
You arrived in my dream and
deconstructed my life
你来到了我的梦里
将我的生命解构

I thought I looked through your eyes and
I wanted to share this feeling
我以为看透了你的眼睛
想和你一同感受

Throwing all the thoughts away and
let the world guess what's up
Tear mind apart yet still get no answer
把想法全都抛在脑后
让世界猜测我的左右
把内心撕碎没有答案

Troubled from the invisible truth
看不透真相很烦恼

I get hundreds of feelings in a minute
I can see acting and pretending all around me
I get twenty ciggies in my pocket
Cash money in the wallet
And a bag of weed to keep me up

Cash living ain't easy they say
Inhale exhale that's how I relate

Travel like a spaceship rotate
Living in a Russian roulette

Earth is where I stay
But my consciousness will travel
the whole universe
我停留的地方叫做地球
但是我的意识将要穿越整个宇宙

Under the solar exposure
This city looks like any other place
在阳光的照耀下
这个城市和其他地方一样

Eyes closed, ears blocked
Noise and trouble
I want none of that
眼睛一黑、耳朵堵住
烦恼杂吵全都不要
Track Name: Cross The Ocean / 穿越海洋
I, had a dream
Turned to be a fish and
swim across the ocean

I, had a dream
Turned to be a man
on an isolated island

The golden beaches
saved my foot prints
Deep in the woods me and birds
played among the dark green forest
on top of the cliff made of black stones
金色沙滩留有我的足迹
树林深处我和鸟儿欢愉
在墨绿色的森林里面
在黑石造的山崖上

Swim to the deepest side of
the sea with no secret
游往大海的最深处没有秘密

To find myself
找到自己

On top of a ten thousand miles coast line
with layers of weaving waves
万里长的海岸线上
编织着一层层的浪花儿

Opposite to the skyline
full of dark clouds and the raging
water in greyish blue
在与之对立的天际线上布满了乌云和汹涌波涛的灰蓝颜色

I had enough dead pigs and their sayings
I just want to be an ordinary man
with all my feelings and my thunderstorms
Track Name: Magic Forrest / 魔幻森林
The morning mist just scattered
A dew slides through the foliage
清晨的浓雾散了
露水从枝叶上滑落
The mountain forest of June
The Idyllic scene of June
The summer or winter of June
六月的山林
六月的鸟语花香
六月的夏天或是冬天

What is brought here will be taken away
带来的都会被带走

Listen
It's the sound of the wind

是风的声音

The clouds of June arrive
They turn into raindrops
六月的云
飘到这里
幻化成雨滴

Warm wind from the distant Pacific
A seemingly ethereal dream
arrives at the Magic Forest
来自遥远的太平洋的暖风
看似缥缈的不切实际的梦
来到魔幻森林

To forget all the troubles
烦恼全部忘记

Dark clouds arrive
But the wind blows it away
乌云飘到这里
风又把他们吹走了
Track Name: Freedom Funk / 自由放克
Dream, opens up the space
and everything becomes a matter
of indifference
Don’t let time constrain us
and limit our journey for growth
梦,打开了空间
一切都变得无所谓
别让时间约束我和你
限制生长的距离

Wind, blows away the gloominess
and releases air from the smog
It changes the air pressure inside
of reality and outside of facts
风,吹走了阴郁
释放出雾霾里的空气
在现实里和事实外
改变了大气压力

Heat and coldness alter
with seasons change
A man's life is full of farewell,
joy and sorrow
If one wants to grasp fate
Is it too hard to make a change
冷热交替四季更换
人的一生充满离合患难
想要把握命运
换种方式是不是太难

The needs and actualities exist
in the parallel world
It's a concept sitting at the
critical point
需要的和实际
存在于平行世界
是一种理念
就在临界点

BANG!

Look, what leads us to freedom
I have lost the plot, yet
I don't know and I can't see
看,是什么让我们
让我们发现了自由
不知错所什么什么
我不知道也看不见

Heat and coldness alter
with seasons change
A man's life is full of farewell,
joy and sorrow
If one wants to grasp fate
Is it too short to achieve in life time
冷热交替四季更换
人的一生充满离合患难
想要把握命运
今生时间是不是太短

Tried hard to relax myself
And empty my mind
拼命的让自己放松
把心态放空

In this mysterious world
even shadow becomes colourful
在这神秘的世界里
连影子也变得鲜艳

In every dark corner
Great poems and stories are told
Great values are measured
在每个黑色的角落
编织着美丽的诗
在说美丽的故事
衡量的巨大价值

Under the sky full of stars in this
backfired world of distant past or future
I see all these feelings and I take
them into music
To sing it to you out loud
在事与愿违的天地
遥远的过去或者未来
我看见这些感受
在星空漫天的夜里
把它们编成歌
大声唱给你听

Listen, what lead us to freedom
Don't let time beat our life
I don't want to know and see
听,是什么让我们
让我们发现了自由
别让生命败给时间
我不想知道也不想看见
Track Name: Become Yourself / 做你自己
What the fuck

Sometime I want to cry and
I don't know why
Nobody can deny the negativity
The downside of life

Sometime I want to quit but
I don't know why
Nobody brings me the positivity
The downside of my life

To the day when you realize
The way to L I V E

Well brothers and sisters
We all know the answers

Did you hear me
Are you sacred of what I say
Or you want to let somebody else
B E come yourself

Blankness only lead to the
saliences that we hate
It's not acceptable to let substances
dominate the evolution of life
Rip it off, the masks that make us
false til we make a choice for the spirit
空白只能换来令人厌恶的沉默方式
不能接受让物质主导生命的演变过程
摘掉让我们如此虚伪的小丑面具
直到面对在精神层面作出一种选择

Viewable achievable
But not imaginable
Too many people want to be happy
And end up with all disappointments
看到得到
但想象不到
太多的人都想得到快乐
实际得到的全是失望

But I'm happy
Because I found my own way of life
Because I found my own life
Because I found me
So happy
但是我快乐
因为我找到了属于自己的生活方式
因为我找到了属于自己的生活
因为我找到自己所以快乐

You could be happier than I am
你也可以比我更快乐
Track Name: Space Trip / 太空之旅
I have free time yet
you have no plan
Turn up to a place for two
where beautiful sights appear
我有一段空闲
发现你也没有事件
找到两个人的地点
美丽视线出现

The glitter of my heartbeat was
hardly discernible when you came close
We carry love for each other by discovering
a pair of parallel yet staggered paths
你来到了身边
我的心跳忽闪忽现
拥有彼此眷恋
找到平行却交错的线

Don't give up faith and run alone
You don't know nothing about
the affection of love
不要放弃信念独自奔跑
爱的滋味你不是不知道

Don't let sadness invade and
resist the enormous gravity of love
别让悲伤情绪占据自我
抗拒爱情巨大的引力

Wonderful moment becomes true
at the time we travel through
美好片刻实现
一起穿梭的时间
Track Name: Immortals / 神仙
Ride the wind, drive the cloud
Fly up high
To be an Immortal
Not only the edge of sky
But infinite wonder
乘着风 驾着云 飞上天
去做神仙
不只是天边
美妙无限

Think nothing but be an Immortal
Want nothing but only be an Immortal
什么都不想,去做神仙
什么都不要,只做神仙

There are dark clouds
and lightning around
Only be an Immortal
Not only the edge of sky
But infinite wonder
有乌云 是闪电 在身边
只做神仙
不只是天边
美妙无限
