Apple 03:11
那只苹果已经变了味道 是谁给了太多的杂料 再也回不去了 多么像你 多么像是你 The apple’s taste has changed Who give it too much condiments It’ll never be the same Just like you Just like you

这个城市的街道 迅速地把他淹没 看不出有什么不同 看不出有什么不同 也许他随身带着梦想 不过这梦想也像泡沫一样 在街道上随时被人偷走 不留下一点线索 他从南方来 带着他熟悉的一切 还有并不明确的未来 他从北方来 带着他想要遗忘的一切 还有并不明确的未来 City Streets Drown him in a short time There’s no difference There’s no difference Maybe he took dreams with him But they are like foams Which would be stolen in streets At any time Without a clue He is from the south With everything he familiar with And an uncertain future He is from the north With everything he tries to forget And an uncertain future

多好的天气 看清我自己 找个合伙人吧 生活在一起 多好的天气 让我看清你 不过是朋友的邀请 吃喝在一起 What a nice day Good to see through myself Let’s find a partner Live with him together What a nice day Let me see through you It is just an invitation from a friend Let’s eat and drink together

黎明到来前我甚至来不及跳上车 我想你应该清楚地知道我不在那儿 那就像是一个预言但是永远不可能实现 那是情人节的礼物以及来自吉普赛人的吻 我向你告别时 天空从不下雨 叫我任何名字我不会在意 我愿意成为任何人任何一个没有名字的人 如果你要离开 就说再见 就趁着风笛声还没有消失 月亮还没有暗淡的时候 如果你要离开 就说再见 Before the dawn I barely had time to jump on the train I think you must know I’m not there Just like a prophesy never comes true It is a Valentine gift and a kiss from Gypsies When I say goodbye to you It never rains I don’t care you call me by any names I want to be anyone, anyone without name If you want to leave Just say goodbye Take your time before the pipe music is gone Before the moon is dark If you want to leave Just say goodbye

她已经走过了隧道 就要到达白光照耀的地方 一个概念就在你的桌子上形成 你和你的客人变得沉默 多么糟糕 她的双手触摸到了光 但里面什么也没有 你看多么糟糕 她的双手触摸到了光 但里面真的是什么也没有 而客人将要离开 剩下你,和你沉默的话题 可是什么也听不见 She has passed the channel She is about to be the place in white light A concept is forming itself on your desk You and your guests fall silence What a bad thing Her hands is touching the light But nothing inside And the guests are about to leave Left you and your silent topic behind But nothing can be heard

我希望有一些美好的事情能够和你一起分享 可是你看现在变化这么快说出来的怎么值得相信 也许所有的城市都被一种情绪笼罩其中包括你的也包括我的 那么我应该到哪里给你找一些可以分享的美好事情? 然后在某个晚上把它写在本子上当作未来的方向 大象将会再一次回到平原而你又会安详得像个刚出生的孩子 可是我还是希望有一些美好的事情能够和你一起分享 可是我还是希望有一些美好的事情能够和你一起分享 不过失去将会失去你不明白所以你像条小船一样顺流而下 可是我还是希望有一些美好的事情能够和你一起分享 你当然可以戴上花朵在城市的每条大街上走一走 在公共汽车上也可以随便听听人们谈论他们关心的东西 你说是的是的我想过这样的生活我还想过那样的生活 可是我还是希望有一些美好的事情能够和你一起分享 I wish there is something beautiful to share with you But everything changes so quickly, is anything speaked out worth to be trusted Maybe every city is doomed in a kind of mood, you and I are a part of it So where can I find you something beautiful to share Then write it down on a notebook and take it as the future direction Elephants will come back to the plain again and you will be peaceful as a new born baby But still I wish there is something beautiful to share with you But still I wish there is something beautiful to share with you But everything will be lost you don’t understand so you flow away just like a boat But still I wish there is something beautiful to share with you You can wear your flowers and walk around in city streets You can listen to people talking about things they are interesting in on buses You said yes, yes I want a life like this and that But still I wish there is something beautiful to share with you

My Far East 03:40
They will create you behind the curtain

是否可以给自己一个约定,再也不暴力自己? 多少年才能回复心灵,身体有可能再也经受不起 你的家人有没有联系你? 难道是你想给谁一击,击倒自己? 我能看见你微笑怎样甜蜜 如果这一切都不在意 谁还能留住你? 也许冷静下来一切都不如意 告诉自己是个载体 或许像树叶飘零 你会看见不同的心境 它们在等待你的同行 Can you make a deal with yourself:never abuse yourself again? How many years your heart need to recover, your body may not afford it too Does your family contact you? Are you going to blow yourself down? I can see your sweet smile If you don’t care all these Who can hold you Maybe all disappointment after you calm down Tell yourself you are but a vehicle Maybe falling like leaves You will see different states of mind They are waiting to go with you

我看见你走过少女的幻想时光 世界在你的眼睛里 观察所看见的人和事 你开始沉淀,清醒着 家庭中的爱,还有禁区 你现在可明白那些孤寂为你盛开 一个人明白一个人感受没人可替代 你的空间是多么自由自在 爱在你幻想的美 虽然它们并不与他人有关 但它就是你能感受到的 你关心的那棵花开了吗? 那些你每日看护的自己! I see you walk through a teenager girl’s illusion The world is in your eyes You see everything and everyone through You begin to subside with a clear mind Think of love in family, and fobbiden zone Do you understand those loneliness is blooming for you No one feel or experience for you instead Your world is so free Love is in your dreamy beauty They have nothing to do with others By you can feel for real Does the flower you care about blossom out? It is your own ego you be nursing everyday

所有认识的人 都有可能成为朋友 但那只能在心里 现实会很复杂 当然他们在片刻闪现 那些有矛盾的人 有着种种现实实体 没有相遇的人 我们都是过客 家庭工作和无声无息的时间 打开一道门 那里充满无限可能 勇敢真心的对待 那样不会白来 想从他人身上得到更多 你就不会得到快乐 回到那条轨道中去 或许那里只有你 逃避努力的过程 它将成为你的绊脚石 只为自己负责 剩下的只是过眼云烟 Everyone you know Could be a friend But it could be only keep in heart The real world is complicate They are flashing back People with trouble and complex They have real entity There are no real encounters We are all passerby Family, works and soundless times Open the door There are infinite possibilities Be brave and be true So you won’t come here in vain If you only want more from others You will not be happy at last Go back to the track Where there may be yourself only If you try to escape hard work It will be your obstacle Be responsible for yourself only An nothing else matter

我要给自己放假 就当你不存在 房间电视书桌还有我的植物 多么安静的夜 夜虫在叫 我的大脑也要休息了 谁都不需要 关上灯看着植物 电扇在吹 静静地不再吵不再烦不再安定不了 I want to take a rest Just like you are not there The room, the TV, the desk and my plants What a quiet night Night crickets are singing My brain needs rest I don’t want no one Turn off the light and watch my plants Electric fan is blowing So quiet, no more quarrel, no more worry and no more restless feeling

有心了,就会有快乐和烦恼 没有事事顺心的可能 也没有事事随你心的人 自己也不可能面面俱到 那是童话世界 一个人可以到达 时间里也会出现限度 如果说有过足矣 那里是仙境 随心一些吧 随意一些吧 它来了 它走了 在心里也一样放松 它来了 它走了 可是也一样无求 Wherever there is a heart There will be happy and worry Anything cannot be that satisfying Nobody can satisfy you forever You can not be perfect as well It would be a fairland One can reach There will be dimensions in the time If you once owed it will be Ok It is a fairland Let it be Take it easy It comes It goes Just be relax It comes It goes Just be selfless
13.
你的存在就是我的幸福 看着你慢慢地来 看着你静静地走 我是偶尔与你擦肩而过的树 你总是在旁边的世界里行走 没有人会在离开的车里向你挥手 也没有人会注意到你的姿势 可你告诉我的话我永远都记得 你说那里有一条看不见的路 那里有一条我们看不见的路 Your existence is my happiness Look at you come slowly Look at you go quietly I am just a tree happen to be on your road You always walk in an outside world No one waves you goodbye in a limo No one notice your poses But I always remember what you told me You said there is a road we cannot see There is an invisible road

about

Uncontrollable, Ice Age Stories, Dear Eloise's fourth full-length release, signifies a deep freeze in the band's long trek of hazed, ice-glazed world weariness. It's their winter record.

The overarching theme of UIAS is solitude, the icy mirror of memoir. From the very first track, "Apple", it's clear that some once-sweet fruit has turned bitter with age. Promises of new beginnings fade with startling speed, like a dazzling first snow shoved off into gray piles on bleak city sidewalks ("A Brand New World"). Sun Xia's doleful voice recalls faceless lovers, gone in gray dusk light on the first train out of town ("A Man Without Name"). She mourns rootlessness ("Falling Like Leaves"), travels winter paths lined with naked trees, slowly moving away from the hearth ("There is an Invisible Road"). The closest she gets to warm romance is on the C-side closer, "Teenage Girl", in which she taunts her subject, "Your world is so free / Love is in your dreamy beauty" before mocking with the wisdom of the adult lover scorned: "Does the flower you care about blossom? / It's your own ego you're nursing."

Everyone in life is a "Passerby": "There are no real encounters." Just a martial, two-step dirge marking the way past the occasional flash of brilliance ("The Place in White Light"), forever ending in a distant fiction, someone else's sculpture of your own stone-cold facade ("My Far East").

Ultimately, Uncontrollable, Ice Age Stories offers a sober message of hope: after the cold there is still a type of fleeting joy, the "Summer Night Smile" smiled for no one in the somber escape of solitary reflection.

short sentence on sleeve:
十个落水的孩子在夜晚/重返大地。漫长的时间里/他们是唯一的一代/街灯熄灭。谁在黑暗中/独自歌唱?谁在尘埃里掩埋?/灵魂像一场大雾覆盖屋顶
