Reverse Scale

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


Dragons are animals; one can disturb them and then ride them. And they have a reverse scale on their throat, if people have intention to disturb it, then it will certainly kill people.

And life
Being unfair to everyone is unreasonable
Can only pounce upon the mud, welcoming that shower of rain, it's not up to you

The shower of rain that has suddenly come
This street is muddy
Just like life
It is but an improvisation
The whole world
Is provoking us right now
Even if it is like this
Still going forward without fear

The mailed newspaper in my hand
The person on the cover is smiling
At the next junction
Life is screeching in the dark alley
Living is only
A corner on the printing ink
After tomorrow
Who can read through it?
You and I use different ways
To step over the thorns ahead
You are rampant, not scared and not chickening out
I lower my head in silence yet I am steady
Hitting back with power
Making my voice heard
To make them silent
Don't dare to believe
Continue to head forward
They are in fear
Opening their eyes wide
They are shying away from it
And then they give up
Concentrating on listening
To my voice

And life
Being unfair to everyone is unreasonable
Can only pounce upon the mud, welcoming that shower of rain, it's not up to you
If life
Is unfair to everyone it is unreasonable
Then let me continue going forward with loneliness until the light

I
I
I only have one kind of appearance
I just will never fall down
Even if I am surrounded by adversity
I will face them with a smile
I only have one kind of roar
I want to let them know
No matter how much more rougher my life gets
I will live very proudly

I'm talking about dignity
It might seem laughable
But at least it
Supports me
Trying to stop me from falling
Living
If it is only an unwillingly quiet noise
Then roar
Let everyone be able to hear it

Hitting back with power
Making my voice heard
To make them silent
Don't dare to believe
Continue to head forward
They are in fear
Opening their eyes wide
They are shying away from it
And then they give up
Concentrating on listening
To my voice

And life
Being unfair to everyone is unreasonable
Can only pounce upon the mud, welcoming that shower of rain, it's not up to you
If life
Is unfair to everyone it is unreasonable
Then let me continue going forward with loneliness until the light
