Track Name: Cat Food (猫粮)
i'm 26 years old right now and tired of these old pricks letting me down
well, i'll just have to get used to it somehow
but I thought you had the will to make a change
i thought you had the mind to want to make things better
but you're just wrapped up in your game

so what's the point of you, what do you do?
turn down ideas that i give to you
well, a camel is a horse designed by committee
now i know that's really true
so what's the point of you, why are you here?
pissing the same wind year after year
well, a camel is a horse designed by committee
now i know that's really true

you're in a position now to do a little, little good
you're in a position now to do a little, little good
you're in a position now to do a little, little good
Track Name: Gao Su Tie Lu (高速铁路)
ticket in hand, 她拿身份证
happy to know that we'll never see the airport again
提前来二三十分钟
到那儿看哪条线新开通

高姐说盒饭要四十五块
magazines full of items we wont buy

i wonder how it would have sold
in a land with less control
connected like the new from old
a billion pieces of the whole
Track Name: Dao Shi Hou (到时候)
mind and brain

我不要去你的山寨医院
我不要去你的山寨咨询公司
and I could go on and on
快到时候,我准备走
半年后
听不到你的空话
半年后

on and on and on and on

快到时候,我准备走
半年后
听不到你的空话
半年后
限制超过
半年后
Track Name: Xiao Di Fang (小地方)
不是钱的问题,朋友
我估计你的想法有错
但我的样本量太少

you are representing more than just yourself, you know
and i can only do a thousand thankless tasks for you
and i would turn you down if i worked at the embassy
and all your former coworkers are not going to help you now
as you get uglier
from the poison that you drink
that the insurance card pays for
that your company gave you
that they assumed you'd use in a responsible way

你选择这条路,快走
我们两个没有什么可以说
我的性格太礼貌
实说你没有那么好
我的样本量太少
我的性格太礼貌
实说你没有那么好
我的样本量太少

you are representing more than just yourself, you know

that the insurance card pays for
that your company gave you

Track Name: Mediocre Superstar (一般般的大明星)
这里没有人在饿死
有些认为是一件好事
生活很不错
都是那么的舒服
我可以跟你聊天儿
but it's not my mother tongue

你要谁?
选择很少
谁要你?
怎么能满意?

每一天骑自行车到办公室
坐八小时
下班以后回家吃饭
看新闻刷牙睡觉

两千万
Track Name: Illusion (幻觉)
你不是你
我不是我
你是写好的程序
我是编好的剧本

真不是真
假不是假
你相信的事我感觉不到
你感觉到的事我也不相信
自由是幻觉
是反意思
是骗人的

now you always know where I am
the picture's not so great but i don't care

Track Name: Shanghai Winter Sort of Love Song (上海冬天)
i like to say i'm doing something useful
but we all know that's a lie
they don't fight, all they do is argue
and we've been told that's just the way it is
but i've found it doesn't really matter
and all my friends write all the magazines
and it all looks really good on paper
and later on it will go on my cv

but i've got the most important part done

i am wasting all my time
except for all the time i spend with you
