lyrics

I WILL NOT SURVIVE
我幸存不了
Wǒ Xìngcún Bù Liǎo

The elites won't have me,
精英分子不接受,
Jīngyīng fēnzǐ bù jiēshòu,

They don't know me,
他们都不认识我,
Tāmen dōu bù rènshí wǒ,

I have no money.
钱我也没有。
Qián wǒ yě méiyǒu.

Spewing out,
喷涌出来,
Pēnyǒng chūlái,

These corporate drones,
企业的嗡嗡声,
Qǐyè de wēng wēng shēng,

With wicked tones,
用邪恶的人声,
Yòng xié'è de rén shēng,

I’m so alone.
我太孑身。
Wǒ tài jié shēn.

Current prognosis,
当前的预兆,
Dāngqián de yùzhào,

I will not survive.
我幸存不了。
Wǒ xìngcún bùliǎo.

I cannot kneel,
我不能下跪,
Wǒ bùnéng xià gui,

I'd rather die.
我宁可死掉。
Wǒ nìngkě sǐ diào.

Reality show,
真人节目,
Zhēnrén jiémù,

Just won't go,
我根本不会去,
Wǒ gēnběn bù huì qù,

Despise it so.
我对它太小觑。
Wǒ duì tā tài xiǎo qù.

Nazis again,
纳粹又复活,
Nàcuì yòu fùhuó,

So goes the trend,
趋势已赤裸,
Qūshì yǐ chìluǒ,

I see the end.
死亡是结果。
Sǐwáng shì jiéguǒ.

Out of hope,
希望已没有,
Xīwàng yǐ méiyǒu,

I will not survive.
我幸存不了。
Wǒ xìngcún bùliǎo.

I cannot cope,
我不能应付,
Wǒ bùnéng yìngfù,

I must die.
我必须死掉。
Wǒ bìxū sǐ diào.

So pays the bonus,
因此支付红利,
Yīncǐ zhīfù hónglì,

That is not owed us.
不再欠我们钱币。
Bù zài qiàn wǒmen qiánbì.

We delight in,
高高兴兴收看,
Gāo gāo xìng xìng shōukàn,

Bread and circus.
面包和马戏。
Miànbāo hé mǎxì.

Timid, cowed,
怯懦,生畏,
Qiènuò, shēngwèi,

So confused.
懵懵懂懂。
Měng měng dǒng dǒng.

Standing up is,
站起来也,
Zhàn qǐlái yě,

Just no use.
沒有用。
Méiyǒu yòng.

Weighing this,
称称这些,
Chēng chēng zhèxiē,

I will not survive.
我幸存不了。
Wǒ xìngcún bùliǎo.

Cannot persist,
不能坚持,
Bùnéng jiānchí,

I must die.
我必须死掉。
Wǒ bìxū sǐ diào.

Moral questions,
道德问提,
Dàodé wèntí,

In this repression,
在这压抑里,
Zài zhè yāyì lǐ,

This great depression.
这巨大的低迷,
Zhè jùdà de dīmí,

Manipulated,
一直被操控,
Yīzhí bèi cāokòng,

Unabated,
一直不减弱,
Yīzhí bù jiǎnruò,

Cannot escape it.
没办法逃脱。
Méi bànfǎ táotuō.

The fascists rule,
法西斯规定,
Fàxīsī guīdìng,

I will not survive.
我幸存不了。
Wǒ xìngcún bùliǎo.

What can I do?
我能怎么办?
Wǒ néng zěnme bàn?

I must die.
我必须死掉。
Wǒ bìxū sǐ diào.
