VERSE #1:
我研究你的裝幀 捧你在手裡聞
I study your design, cup you in my hands, and smell
不敢打擾 橫臥著整個過去的靈魂
I dare not disturb the soul wherein the past reclines
未來少年的標準 是不像詩的文
The standard teenage boy of the future, is the prose that doesn’t resemble poetry
承載著 一切復古荒謬廢話和青春
which bears the weight of all the vintage, absurdity, nonsense, and youth

VERSE #2:
這微整形的宇宙
This universe that went through nonsurgical cosmetic procedures
美麗過剩的哀愁
The sorrow of superfluous beauty
無人能背誦 白紙黑字的一頁脆弱
No longer can one recite a page of vulnerability written in black type on white paper

CHORUS:
整個時代 顯得毫不掩飾
The whole era appears to make no secret of its feelings
整個雲端 寫滿誰的瑕疵
Whose flaws are written on the clouds?
於是可歌可泣的小日子 依偎著孤單相擁到死
So the heroic and moving deeds of everyday life, have to snuggle up with loneliness in each other’s arms till death

如同悲傷 被下載了兩次
As if sorrow were downloaded twice
三行詩的優雅 加倍諷刺
The elegance of a tercet seems twice as sarcastic [as a longer text]
推銷那點心事
selling those trivial personal sentiments

我謄寫你的快樂 給你我的指紋
I transcribe happiness that leaves its fingerprints on us
願書消失那天 仍懷念過敏和灰塵
I wish by the day when books disappear, people will still think of the allergies and the dust [brought by the books]
未來少女的標準 是一眨眼的梗
The standard teenage girl of the future, is the cliché joke of that wink
承載著 一切復古荒謬廢話和青春
which bears the weight of all the vintage, aburdity, nonsense, and youth

VERSE #2

CHORUS

如同悲傷 被下載了兩次
As if sorrow were downloaded twice
三行詩的優雅 加倍諷刺
The elegance of a tercet seems twice as sarcastic [as a longer text]
裝飾那點無知
garnishing that ignorance…

如同悲傷 被下載了兩次
As if sorrow were downloaded twice
眼淚漸漸氾濫 瞬間消失
Tears slowly welled up and instantly disppeared
曾經不可一世
The once insufferably arrogant Chinese characters
變成一般見識 的字
which turned out to be common sense
