lyrics

夏天结束

I once saw silver linings, now I only see clouds. Where once I had a thousand friends now got a crowd. I used to say that everything will work out in the end, but to the beaten and heartbroken ones you just can't pretend.

Where once I had an open heart, now I close it like a fort. With great stone walls and archers poised and a guard at every door. And if a stranger should come knocking on a cold and lampless night with a cloak and dagger close at hand I'll be safe inside.

Here's three cheers for the beaten. Three cheers for the broke. Here's three cheers for the wind-blown ones at the bottom of that rope. Here's three cheers for those cannot say the glass is half full. Here's three cheers if you can't count sheep and you end up counting wolves.

The birds are singin' in the trees but little do they know the very limbs they stand upon will be buried in the snow. And the wavin trees and buzzin bees and flowers pink and red will all turn grey and all fall down when summer ends.

All that's good and right I've seen you could balance on a knife. You may call it cynical but I just call it life. And those few with golden souls will be trampled in the ground under the boots of those marchin fools who always run this town.

Here's three cheers for the beaten. Three cheers for the broke. Here's three cheers for the wind blown ones at the bottom of that rope. Here's three cheers for those cannot say the glass is half full. Here's three cheers if you can't count sheep and you end up counting wolves.

Is there nobody out there to lift the curse upon this place for sake of all us rats down here circling a maze? If a message in a bottle, then I'd send it off in haste in a rocket at the speed of sound bound for outer space!

One of the greatest bands to emerge from the Shanghai music scene, they never cease to amaze audiences with their grandiose musicality and adeptness at crafting songs that don’t seem to leave your head.” -The Guardian (UK) ... more
