天鹅共和国 / The Republic of Swans

Chinese

我郑重的提起往事 / 好像它们真的不存在
你看,天鹅强壮的翅膀 / 如果你触犯他们 / 他们就轻易的将你的手臂 / 挥断,栏杆上,海鸥滑稽的练武 / 可当他们在天上眼暴贼光 / 连太阳也不敢露面
我曾是一只鸟

English Translation

I bring up past events solemnly
it seems they don’t really exist

See the swans’ powerful wings
if you offend them
they’ll break your arm with a casual wave
on the railings, seagulls practice their droll martial arts
but in the air, they flash their evil eyes
even the sun doesn’t dare show its face

I was once a bird
