Big brother, what the heck're you playing rock for?

lyrics

大哥你玩摇滚你玩它有啥用啊
Big brother, what the heck're you playing rock for?

我必须学会新的卖弄啊
I need to learn new tricks
这样你才能继续地喜欢呐
So that you’ll keep listening
看那艺术像个天生的哑巴
See, art is born mute
他必须想出别的办法说话
It has to invent ways to speak
说话
To speak

究竟摇滚是累坏你的身子儿啊
In the end, is rock wiping you out
还是累坏了你这个人儿
Or is it wiping you clean away
看那爱情它像个瞎子
See, love is like a blind man
他必须找到位置说话
It has to find a place to speak from
说话
To speak from

看来你是学会新的卖弄了
Sure you’ve learned to show off
要不怎么那么招人的喜欢
Why else does everyone love you?
可是你还是成了一个哑巴
But you’ve lost your ear, your voice
神神叨叨地说着一些废话
Stuttering strange nonsense
废话
Nonsense

终究是成不了个有情的婊子儿
In the end, do you fail as love’s whore
还是装不明白个有义的戏子儿
Or as an actor that can’t play love
只是理想咋突然那么没劲儿
Big ideals are so lame in the end
看着你我也再说不出什么词儿
Looking at you, I can’t say another word
什么词儿
Another word

Second Hand Rose Beijing, China

Everything seems to be second hand in China. Marx, Weibo, rock music, even the women. Searching through the rumble, an old broken shoe makes us laugh, jump with joy.
