about

The Root of Innocence, 法兹 FAZI’s second full-length album, marks the young band’s stride into confident maturity. It kicks off with “Control”, an anthem about youth lost and the trudge into adulthood. This coming-of-age theme pops up throughout the album, with contemplative and plaintive lyrics on topics cosmic (“Borderless”, “Psychedelic”), poetic (“Xiamen”), and deeply personal (“Time is Sinking”). This is an album about the veneer of childhood peeling away, set to stirring melody and driving rhythm. Swirling synth layers foreground some of the album’s most poignant tracks, as on lead single "0909 II", another pained attempt to reclaim lost hours: “Time belongs to us / Don’t lose it / And don’t let it be stolen / Instead, stop time.”

Track Name: 0909 II
属于我们的时间
Time belongs to us
不能丢失
Don’t lose it
也不要被偷走
And don’t let it be stolen
让时间 停止吧
Instead, stop time
你顺便把我,把我带走
Just take me, take me away
我希望身体,有个口袋
I wish my body had a pocket
随时可以,把你装进带走
So I could put you in it and take you away at any time

你从心中走来,空气弥漫着爱
You came from the heart, the air was filled with love
世界开始旋转,世界开始旋转
The world began to spin, the world began to spin
临近终点的时候,为我指引方向
Near the end of time, you showed me the way
世界开始旋转,世界开始旋转
The world began to spin, the world began to spin

*
握着你的手,握着你的手
Holding your hand, holding your hand
握着你的手,握着你的手
Holding your hand, holding your hand
你从心中走来,空气弥漫着爱
You came from the heart, the air was filled with love
世界开始旋转,世界开始旋转
The world began to spin, the world began to spin
临近终点的时候,为我指引方向
Near the end of time, you showed me the way
世界开始旋转,世界开始旋转
The world began to spin, the world began to spin
