lyrics

INSULATED
绝缘的
Juéyuánde

The bombs are raining from the sky up above,
炸弹像下雨一样从天空中落入,
Zhàdàn xiàng xiàyǔ yīyàng cóng tiānkōng zhōng luòrù,

Obsessed in X-Box, you just can't get enough.
沉迷于 X盒子,你还是得不到满足。
Chénmí yú X-Hézi, nǐ háishì dé bù dào mǎnzú.

Just in your world, much miles away,
在你的世界,相差千万里,
Zài nǐ de shìjiè, xiāngchà qiān wàn lǐ,

Addicted to some video game,
上瘾于某些视频游戏,
Shàngyǐn yú mǒu xiē shìpín yóuxì,

And insulated.
这样绝缘的。
Zhèyàng juéyuán de.

A homeless child is freezing out in the cold,
一个无家可归的孩子寒冷正冻结着他,
Yīgè wújiākěguī de háizi hánlěng zhèngdòngjiézhe tā,

You’re wondering what your cash is worth converted to gold.
你想知道你的现金转换成黄金的价码。
Nǐ xiǎng zhīdào nǐ de xiànjīn zhuǎnhuàn chéng huángjīn de jiàmǎ.

One day you'll die, and you'll be gone,
有一天你会死,你会消亡,
Yǒu yītiān nǐ huì sǐ, nǐ huì xiāowáng,

This tragic world goes on and on,
这悲剧世界将一如既往,
Zhè bēijù shìjiè jiāng yīrújìwǎng,

And never learns.
也从不长记性。
Yě cóng bù zháng jìxìng.

Punch me, Punch me,
揍我,揍我,
Zòu wǒ, zòu wǒ,

I want to feel something.
我想要找点儿感觉。
Wǒ xiǎng yào zhǎo diǎn’er gǎnjué.

Hit me, hit me,
打我,打我,
Dǎ wǒ, dǎ wǒ,

I want to know what's real.
我想知道什么是真的。
Wǒ xiǎng zhīdào shénme shì zhēn de.

There's angry people bolted out of the loop,
那里有愤怒的人们被闩在圈外了,
Nǎ li yǒu fènnù de rénmen bèi shuān zài quānwài le,

And shallow people sitting taking a poop.
而粗浅的人在坐着拉着屎呢。
Ér cūqiǎn de rén zài zuòzhe lāzhe shǐ ne.

Don't be a drag, salute the flag,
别扯后腿,向国旗致意,
Bié chě hòu tuǐ, xiàng guóqí zhìyì,

And grab a dog and wag, wag, wag,
而抓只狗就摇尾,摇尾,摇尾,
Ér zhuā zhǐ gǒu jiù yáoyǐ, yáoyǐ, yáoyǐ,

Don't think too much.
别想太多。
Bié xiǎng tài duō.

Stab me, wound me,
刺我,伤我,
Cì wǒ, shāng wǒ,

I want to feel something.
我想要找点儿感觉。
Wǒ xiǎng yào zhǎo diǎn’er gǎnjué.

Shoot me, kill me,
射我,杀我,
Shè wǒ, shā wǒ,

I want to know what's real.
我想知道什么是真的。
Wǒ xiǎng zhīdào shénme shì zhēn de.

Society is upside down and nothing is fair,
社会颠倒了,也没有什么算是公平,
Shèhuì diāndǎole, yě méiyǒu shénme suàn shì gōngpíng,

Reality is broken, it seems nobody cares.
现实已经被破坏,似乎无人关心。
Xiànshí yǐjīng bèi pòhuài, sìhū wú rén guānxīn.

Just share those drugs, that cleanse the soul,
把那些净化灵魂的药物享用,
Bǎ nàxiē jìnghuà línghún di yàowù xiǎngyòng,

And make as if you never know,
假装你总是什么都不懂,
Jiǎzhuāng nǐ zǒng shì shénme dōu bù dǒng,

And insulated.
这样绝缘的。
Zhèyàng juéyuán de.
