I want face (respect)
Use my way
To change history
Nothing much really
Follow me
Read aloud a few words

Common Yam Rhizome
Angelica
Lycium Barbarum
Go
Common Yam Rhizome
Angelica
Lycium Barbarum
Go
Look at me pick up some Chinese medicine
Take a dose of pride

My expression is free from restraint
Jump an approximate
My movement is relaxed and free
You can't learn it
The signboard of the rainbow
Adjusts to a good state
At the gorgeous city
Waiting to wake up
My expression is free from restraint
Jump an approximate
Use calligraphy in the dynasty's books
The inner force spreads
The heroic air wipes away the regular script
Give a punch of dialogue
Ending lying flat on the ground
See who's fierce

Refine what cinnabar
Kneaded into what pill
The slices of antlers cannot be too thin
The technique of the old master cannot be messily copied like this
Turtle jelly
Yunnan white drug-powder
And there is also cordyceps (Chinese caterpillar fungus)
My own music, my own medicine
The quantity is just right
Listen to me, Chinese medicine is bitter
Plagiarism should be even bitterer
Quickly flip open Compendium of Materia Medica
Read more of these rare books
Chansu
Lumbricus (earthworm)
Has already turned over river and lakes
These are the hard work of our ancestors
We definitely mustn't lose
It is this light
It is this light
Sing together
(It is this light
It is this light)
Let us blend a folk medicine
To specially treat your inner injury of fawning on foreign powers
The Chinese prescription that has already been rooted for a thousand years
Have powers other people don't know about

My expression is free from restraint
Jump an approximate
My movement is relaxed and free
You can't learn it
The signboard of the rainbow
Adjusts to a good state
At the gorgeous city
Waiting to wake up
My expression is free from restraint
Jump an approximate
Use calligraphy in the dynasty's books
The inner force spreads
The heroic air wipes away the regular script
Give a punch of dialogue
Ending lying flat on the ground
See who's fierce

Crouch
The little vampire crouches
The little vampire crouches
And crouches
The little vampire crouches
A light is lit in the dark alley
And crouches
A light is lit in the dark alley
Enter Luo Bo Keng (landmark at Zhong Shan)
And crouches
The little vampire crouches
Reading out curses and humming
