lyrics

He dreams, in the smog, of the old time when the Internet was romantic and immature
she works, with her close-up look at the reality, she works
he wants to know: what is life
she wants to inspect humanity’s milestones with a team
he knows that he hasn’t recognised what’s worth his sacrifice
she learns to dance

Her parents bring her body out of emptiness
shake the black mercury off
and put her on top of a wooden plinth
Our gods and ancestors come in a procession to inspect
saying incessantly —

‘This one will become a model employee!’
‘This one will become a geologist!’
‘What about her?’
‘She will become a scout before the dawn.’
‘When aging gradually occupies their nerves,’
‘reward them as they deserve,’
‘and give back to them the ancient miracles.’

‘Give them courage,’
‘give them patience,’
‘give them the strength to wake up from literature and fashion.’
‘Give them courage,’
‘give them patience,’
‘give them also time to broadcast TV shows!’

他在雾霾之中,做着网络浪漫青涩之时的旧梦
她在对现实的逼视中工作、工作
他想知道什么叫生活
她想和小分队前去考察人类的丰碑
他知道,他还没有认清值得为之牺牲的
她学舞蹈

父母把她的身体从虚空中打捞
抖了抖那黑色的水银
把她放在木头基座上
我们的先祖和神明列队视察
絮絮叨叨地,他们说——

“他将成为模范职员!”
“他将成为地质学家!”
“而她呢?”
“她会成为黎明前的斥候。”
“当衰老逐渐占领他们的神经,”
“给他们应有的报酬,”
“还给他们远古的奇迹。”

“给他们勇气,”
“给他们耐心,”
给他们从文学和流行中醒来的力气。”
“给他们勇气,”
“给他们耐心,”
“也给他们播放节目的时间!”
