Crashing Into Daylight

from by Hiperson

lyrics

Crashing into daylight is harder than slipping into the night
the light tingles your sullen head
On this day you refuse to be cruel
while people in the streets maintain their ancient excitement

Being in daylight means handing yourself over to the light
and the light might bring you into the worlds of others
These won’t necessarily be their inner worlds
but does it matter?
This is after all a shared world of cement and cicada buzz.
¬––– what kind of a shared world is this?

People in the streets maintain their ancient predicament
your delicate heartbeats are also from a long, long time ago
‘At least do not be cruel’, you warn
‘your freedoms can be counted on the fingers of one hand!’

Among the willows, beside the lotus pond, beneath the thunderbolts, oh heavens!
Despise their pride, and be despised

撞进白昼比滑进夜晚来得困难
光线使你迟钝的头颅开始发痒
在这一天你绝对不想做一个残忍的人
街上的人都还保存着来自很久以前的热忱

白昼意味着把自己交给光线
而光线也许会带你进入他们的世界
那并不一定是他们内心的世界
但又有什么问题呢?
这毕竟是一个水泥、蝉鸣的共同世界!
——这究竟是一个怎样的共同世界?

街上的人都还保存着来自很久以前的困难
你们巧妙的心跳也来自于很久、很久以前
“至少别做一个残忍的人,”你提醒
“你们的自由屈指可数!”

在柳树间,在荷塘边,在闪电下,天呐!
蔑视他们的骄傲——被蔑视
