毒药 / Poison

Chinese

烟草屏住呼吸
流亡者的窗户对准 / 大海深处放飞的翅膀 / 冬日的音乐驶来 / 像褪色的旗帜
是昨天的风,是爱情
悔恨如大雪般降落 / 当一块石头裸露出结局 / 我以此刻痛哭余生
再给我一个名字
我伪装成不幸 / 遮挡母语的太阳

English Translation

Tobacco bates breath

the exile’s window is aligned with
wings the sea’s depths sent soaring
winter music sailing in
like a fading flag

is yesterday’s wind, is love

regret descends like a heavy snowfall
in the moment a stone bares its finale
I wail out the rest of my life

give me one more name

I disguise myself as misfortune
I block out the sun of the mother tongue
