General / Checkmate

Composer: Jay Chou (周杰倫) (周杰伦)
Lyricist: Huang Jun Lang (黃俊郎) (黄俊郎)


The arrow of time
Also points to the place you return to after losing
You will go forward
But in the end you still need to get used to surrendering
That's all
The sixth step is your biggest mortal wound
I take no action
Stems from being used to silently mulling over everything
Cannon overhead
Purely stems from my polite opening
Screen horses
Keeping shen hua inside only then can I subdue hardness with gentleness
The 26th step, 5 across cannon advance 4
Simply probing measure
The move of 33th step, chariot move across from 2 to 7
I'm afraid that it will be hard for you to defend against a hidden attack
This non-shedding of blood war, only self pride will be hurt
The iron law of the winner is acknowledged to be king and the losers are declared as bandits is no different from reality
The old fellow carrying the birdcage standing at one side pats me on the shoulder
I guess he should be thinking the same thing as me

Watch me
My fingers relax
My vision is like the dragon
Act as if the enemy is nothing
My ways of fighting are endless
My offensive is like the wind
Using a single chariot to enter the palace
Rolling over your dejected face
Control me
My fingers relax
My vision is like the dragon
Act as if the enemy is nothing
I attack from left and right
My momentum is like the rainbow
Fully using my cannons and horses
The city is under siege, it's useless even if you want to escape

Towards the tide I revise what is
Controlling movement with silence
Can the mist in the mountain forest be the substance to block the way of the eye?
The orbit of the moon revolving and the stars moving are the same as the present army formation
Wind forest fire mountain, is it putting a lot of emphasis on using soldiers?
Till the end
It is inevitable it is me who will map out a plan and you will give up resisting at the end
I'm looking up at the setting sun; you lower your head leaving gloomily
Listen to me; defeats and victories are ordinary things to a general
You need not think anything of it
It is because I am only suited to be peerless

Watch me
My fingers relax
My vision is like the dragon
Act as if the enemy is nothing
My ways of fighting are endless
My offensive is like the wind
Using a single chariot to enter the palace
Rolling over your dejected face
Control me
My fingers relax
My vision is like the dragon
Act as if the enemy is nothing
I attack from left and right
My momentum is like the rainbow
Fully using my cannons and horses
The city is under siege, it's useless even if you want to escape
(Sunshine seams from the tree leaves
Revealing a smile
Warming my beautiful dream
Only the Hwamei in the cage is envying the sky
Yet no one ever understands)
