Track Name: We Are Guilty
★ 02 我们都有罪
——We Are Guilty

有人为我们争取权利 我们旁观不敢参与
There are people fighting for our rights, and the rest of us are just stand-by.

有人因此而进入高墙 我们无助毫无办法
When people fall into prison for us. We are HELPLESS, we are INDIFFERENT.

外围的人拉旗抗议发出声音 而我们却保持沉默
Others, they take over the protesting flap. While , we are still keeping silence.

我们胆怯我们懦弱 我们无法团结无法站立
We are TIMID. We are COWARD. We are too flinched to stand up for our own right.

在他们面前 我们都有罪
In front of them, we are GUILTY.

在他们面前 我们都有罪
In front of them, we are GUILTY.

今日不为他说话,它日必无人为我说话
If we are still holding back, there would be a day when no one speak for us.
Track Name: Someone Among Us
★ 03 有的人
——Someone Among Us — 臧克家

有的人 骑在人民头上说:“我多伟大!”
Someone stepped on others and said arrogantly “See how great I am”
有的人 俯下身子给人民当牛马。
While there are still people who dedicated themselves without accruing fame

有的人 他活着别人就不能活;
Someone lived extravagantly at other people’s expense.
有的人 他活着为了多数人更好的活。
While there are still people lead a life for other’s happiness.

有的人活着 但他已经死了;
Someone still alive, but in our eyes, he is dead already.
有的人死了 但他还活着。
Someone has left us, but the value of his life is still remembered and cherished by us.
Track Name: We Will Overcome
04 我们一定会胜利
We will overcome

不听话 不顺从 不畏惧 不妥协
We are disobedient, we are rebelling.
We are fearless, we are uncompromising
不合作 不配合 不胆却 不屈服
We are disobedient, we are rebelling.
We are fearless, we are uncompromising

我们一定会胜利
We will overcome

不下跪 不自焚 不谄媚 不上访
No kneel-down, no malicious damage,
不相信 不幻想 不期待 不盲从
No injustice and no anticipation,

我们一定会胜利
We will overcome


(南方飞来的小鸿雁呀,不落长江不呀不起飞。
Little birds from south, which wouldn’t fly high without landing off on Yangzi River
要说起义的嘎达梅林,是为了蒙古人民的土地。)
As for our Mongolia Hero — Gada Mairen, who fought for the right of our Mongolia offspring
Track Name: Tear Down This Wall
★ 05 推倒这堵墙
——Tear Down This Wall

在我的国家有一睹高墙,他们限制着每一个公民
There is a High Wall in our country,it restricted citizen.
我想打开这扇窗去呼吸,可他们仍然在控制着我
And I’m dying for breathing outside the Wall. However, it says NO.

我不想这样的苟活下去,只是内心对自由的向往
This place is like a giant jail, and everyone living there was enslaved.
如现在你和我一样愤怒,一起冲破这专制的封锁
There are people, who stick on fighting, were thrown into cell.


推 推倒这堵墙, 推 推倒这堵墙
Tear, tear down This wall.


在这个国家像巨大的监狱
他们在奴役着每一个居民
但有一些人还在坚强的呐喊
最终却将他们送入牢房

我不想这样的苟活下去,只是内心对自由的向往。
It sucks for life living like this, the only thing I’m craving for is FREEDOM.
如现在你和我一样愤怒,一起冲破这专制的封锁。
If you are as furious as us, we should bound together and break down the blockade.

推 推倒这堵墙, 推 推倒这堵墙
Tear, tear down the wall. Tear,

希望 绝望
Hope. Despair.

推 推倒这堵墙,推 推倒这堵墙
Tear down the wall.
Track Name: Calling For Freedom
自由的呼唤
—— Calling For Freedom

我未必能唤醒周围的人们,我只是挣扎着别让自己沉睡。
I may not have the ability to ignite the fire.The only thing I can do is struggle, struggling to not let myself fall with them.

我没能力推翻一堵墙,但我绝不会给它增加哪怕一块砖瓦。
I may not have the power to tear down the wall.But, I wouldn’t do anything for its benefit.


无论世界有多无奈,摔倒一定要站起来。
Though our life sucks, we still managed to get things through
不管曾受多少冤委,要坚强去面对。
No matter how many grievances we’ve been through, we still have to confront it and beat it.


我注定改变不了权势,我只是抗争着不让权势改变我。
Well, I may not have the ability to change the reality.The only thing I can do is fight, fighting to resist this disappointing world/
我可能一辈子看不到未来,但我坚信 自由必将 引导人民 战胜一切。
I may not get the chance to see even the slightest change.
But I still believe the FREEDOM would finally lead us to conquer every injustice.

无论世界有多无奈,摔倒一定要站起来。
Though our life sucks, we still managed to get things through
不管曾受多少冤委,要坚强去面对。
No matter how many grievances we’ve been through, we still have to confront it and beat it.

无论梦想还有多远,坚信它一定能实现
Whether dream is just a vision,Don't give up on it.
战胜你我内心的恐惧 要勇敢的呐喊
Fight against the fear within,Be your own courageous voice.


Though our life sucks, we still managed to get things through.
No matter how many grievance we’ve been through, we still have to confront it and beat it.
Track Name: Disclose Officials' True Asset
★ 07 要求官员公布财产
Disclose officials' true asset!

官员们越来越富 可百姓越来越穷
Wealth's marching to the officials, while people suffer from poverty.
政府越来越富 可工人越来越穷
Government's well financed, while workmen get nothing in hand.
国家越来越富 可人民越来越穷
Nation's mighty rich, people's dire poor.
他们越来越富 可我们越来越穷
THEY're getting wealthy but we're impoverished

要求官员公布财产
Property display in demand.
Let us know how many bribes you've take


请官员虚心接受 百姓监督
Modestly accept people's supervision.
Track Name: You Cannot Represent Us
★ 08 人大代表不代表我们
——You Cannot Represent Us
You claimed that you are speaking for us, while the gap is enlarging.
You hold up the incorruptible slogan, while there are still people skimming.
You said aloud that a reform is about to happen, while we are still shackled to the harsh reality.
When will the democracy come if we’re still trapped in this status quo

You can’t represent me,You dare to have the thought to represent.

You posed a smiling face,while you’re still a wicked advocate.
You promised that the competitive market would come, while monopoly is everywhere.
You act as the spokesman for our country, while you are just the mouthpiece of the Party.
I’m questioning, when will you really speak for us.

You can’t represent me,You dare to have the thought to represent.
Track Name: Throw Away The Disguise
★ 09不要伪装
——Throw Away the Disguise


因为面子 有时让你去伪装
Sometimes we put on a mask for the most superficial excuses.
为追逐名利,不惜一切代价
And finally we are lost in the process of pursuing fame and fortunes.

生活,不是活给别人看
Don’t live your life for other people’s judgment.
不要伪装 活的真实一些
Don’t disguise and be truthful to yourself.
撕掉,那些虚荣的面具
Tear down those superficial masks.
跟随内心 真诚面对一切
Follow your heart,and be your genuine-self.

因为欲望 总让你活的很累
We are exhausted by hunting for those desires.
注重虚荣,渐渐迷失自我
We got lost in chasing after those fake glories.
