about

After 〈 Life as an Individual 〉, we inevitably encounter 〈 Life as People 〉. We were so passionate about changing the society. We watched others bleed and even die. We looked into the fragments of the past. We lingered on the stirring of ideals. Sometimes, it's seems that we are trapped in thoughts; still, time moves forward and never stop for our sighs. In our defeat, we glimpse a beauty of sorrow. And it's not beautiful anymore. 〈 Life as People 〉includes: "The Rabbit’s Revenge", "My Bloody Shall Wake You Up" and "Against the Time". With orchestra weaving reality and fantasy, this time, we tenderly tell our stories of being people.

TzChien Portland, Oregon

TzChien is a Taiwanese singer-songwriter whose works featured orchestra in folk songs. Her lyrics are withdrawn and poetic. Her songs are rather soundtrack-like and musical.

TzChien’s music conveys the image of the society: full of inevitable oppression, but still managing to find some warmth and beautify within.

Track Name: The Rabbit's Revenge
Close your eyes go with the rabbit
He's rushing to the queen's tea party
Holy that's holy
Won't you jump down with him

Close your eyes go with the rabbit
You could be his mind's salvation
Alice you should be their heroine

If you could rip it rip it rip it rip it rip it rip it rip it out the heart
I might be guilty guilty guilty guilty guilty guilty guilty in front of god
But I'm tired of their bloody tyranny
They're not sovereigns but ones of two-plus-fifty
Shuffle Cut it

Open eyes and see where you've been
In a war a heart turns ruthless
Push it or crack it
Let the king's men try and fix

Open eyes and trample with feet
Be a giant bring some damages
Alice whatever it is
By justice or innocence-y

So rip it rip it rip it rip it rip it rip it rip it out the heart
I might be guilty guilty guilty guilty guilty guilty guilty in front of god
But I'm tired of their bloody tyranny
They're not ruling but collecting dead bodies
And I'm tired of staying down and being meek
Shuffle Cut it

Close you eyes come with the rabbit
He's planning a revolution
Track Name: My Blood Shall Wake You Up
不是她 不是她的神情
無所謂美不美麗
都不是她的罪行

不要問 不要問誰的心情
無所謂正不正義
都不是她能決定

當月亮升起的時候
她的影子延伸成扭曲的蜘蛛
這裡的蟲不吃人
但他們作為人的部分將被蠶食
總有些夜裡沒有救贖
禱告不如一個巴掌讓她昏去
願她在一個更好的世界醒來
願她成為神最後的遺棄
( I thought my blood shall wake you up
I rose up and marched on
But all I got’s your fist strike me down
‘thought my blood shall wake you up
I lain down and drained out
And I caught a sight of your plastic being )

別說了 噢請你 別說了
有多少的規矩
為了更大的利益

若不是 不是這樣的身體
是否我也可以
掠奪之後還能安穩睡去

'thought my blood shall wake you up
I rose up and marched on
But all I got’s your fist strike me down
‘thought my blood shall wake you up
I lain down and drained out
And I caught a sight of your
(輕輕屏住呼吸
輕輕擦去淚滴
成為空的軀體
窩在血泊裡)

當月亮升起的時候
她的影子延伸成扭曲的蜘蛛
這裡的蟲不吃人
但他們作為人的部分將被蠶食
總有些夜裡沒有救贖
禱告不如一個巴掌讓她昏去
願她在一個更好的世界醒來
願她成為神最後的遺棄
(輕輕吞下聲音
輕輕擦去血跡
靈魂碎了一地
不要看我這裡)
( 'thought my blood shall wake you up
If I should have give my life up
Would I fix the illusion you made up
‘thought my blood shall wake you up
I lain down and drained out
And I caught a sight of your plastic being )
Track Name: Against the Time
搖晃 和鞦韆 一起搖晃

在至高點墜下

身體嵌在當下

搖晃 拖腳走 搖搖晃晃

狠狠被推一把

意識留在彼方

你在槍砲火藥前面揮舞長刀

你的形神勁律像是公孫大娘

不是為了被傳唱或被釋放

只是為了心裡一個誠啊

我在車水馬龍之中拔腿奔跑

我的空間收縮時間流向過往

你的眼神裡還有我的淡妝

影子伴著紅花搖晃 搖晃

搖晃 擁抱你 搖搖晃晃

多希望沒有欲望

生命回歸土壤

搖晃 親吻你 搖搖晃晃

還有幾分空擋

時代碾過你的強

你在槍砲火藥前面揮舞長刀

你的形神勁律像是公孫大娘

不是為了被傳唱或被釋放

只是為了心裡一個誠啊

我在車水馬龍之中拔腿奔跑

我的空間收縮時間流向過往

你的眼神裡還有我的淡妝

影子伴著紅花搖晃 搖晃

我將自己拋向前方將你阻擋

你的圓擰傾曲一轉將我推倒

你說為了生存不可擋的殤
多體貼 將生命成全了啊

把它放入我的心臟
把它流向血管末梢
把它流回我的心臟
然後 輕輕 輕輕地淌
