01 Measuring the Length of Night Lyrics: Zheng Dong Music: Backspace It was simple for me to come to the world Come to hear nightly speeches made by the fowl They always start to crow in the middle of the night Like a spring bed that bumps us both awake Better not rise; so as not to measure the night with the length of a piss Better not rise; so as not to splash your sleeping face with piss Cats in heat and thirsty mosquitoes They'll suffocate if they don't cry out To test their throats and see who's the loudest Clouds crest on the right, rain covers the left Like a shaky little bed carted into a concert hall Better not rise; so as not to measure the night with the length of a piss Better not rise; so as not to splash your sleeping face with piss Better not rise; so as not to measure the night with the length of a piss Better not rise; so as not to splash your sleeping face with piss

02 Befuddled Boy Lyrics: Zheng Dong Music: Backspace You polish your feathers in this entrancing night Finish your eye makeup then head wherever dazzles and intoxicates Walk into a shimmering crowd I don't know how she should be appreciated In a blurred night city, where else is there Wherever we go, it'll be the same Come~ Enjoy a cheap dinner by the road Aye~ Her veil slips lightly down Face of the night lit up in an instant After moments of silence I get one more phrase Where should hearts ruined by cities be placed Wherever, it's all the same Come~ Welcome to a kitchen in chaos Aye~ How could you lie while shadows of our glasses crossed Aah~ After delight, I hear your bell chiming in a frenzied daze Hey~ Where should the half a heart hiding in your dazzling wings be placed

03 Three Mothers Lyrics: Zheng Dong Music: Backspace Three mothers of mine One wants more generations One wants me to be full And one other mother She wants a future from me She says Aaah~ "My beautiful image Can take no filth, regret, or flaws" Go wash away your past Aaah~ I'm already lying in your tomb made of years I try but see no end to your expectations Whatever you say, Mom Whatever you say, Mom Whatever you say, Mom I'm already draining into a molten iron riverbed The milk of your body once watered my chest Aaah~ I'm already lying in your tomb made of years I can't see the edges of your hope from here Up to you, mom Up to you, mom Up to you, mom I'm already lying in a molten iron riverbed The milk from your body once watered my chest Aaah~

04 Face Mask Tragedy Lyrics: Zheng Dong Music: Backspace An inch between our faces A distance that won't yield Can't bear to be parted Yet no way to get close However much intimacy Still an inch can't be passed Speeding car lights will replace you soon With glass between us, I'll be sad and swoon too You call up in the middle of the night Said goodbye to your new lover in a corner store You say you it's been torment, living through this time No more protection, and no more foreplay The street lights breathe Take the inch from your face, please La~ You lost power in the middle of the night In your dry, stuffy blankets, lightning strikes Streams of rain water hook into your eyes No more protection, and no more foreplay Take another breath Rip off that distance, repeatedly placed I would give my life for you Don't turn this way and that anymore And I would give my life for you I would give my life for you Don't come near then turn back anymore And I would give my life for you

05 Rejoice for Our Travels Through the Night Lyrics: Zheng Dong Music: Backspace How did you get here How did you get here Before taking off your travelling pack Diamond-like flames burn over liquid rock Bodies passing freely through fickle cities You and I will always be by faults and crises Rejoice for our travels through the night Together, together, together, together Together, together, together, together Diamond-like flames burn over liquid rock Bodies passing freely through fickle cities You and I will always be by faults and crises Rejoice for our travels through the night

about

怎麼描述一個夜晚,腦海中第一跳出的是月亮
夜間情感總是那麼敏感,看不見摸不著,不好說
三杯下肚,情緒挑逗淚腺,尿像洩洪一樣在晚上噴湧
這張 EP 描述的故事可能是不少人夜間鮮活的情感體驗

在夜裡寫下關於“情”的5首小曲
潦草地描繪了《夜晚的模樣》

謝謝欣賞。
