I Am Lost In Another Country, Maybe On Another Planet


I am lost in another country
maybe on another planet
where children are without any respect
and have got more rights than their parents.

I am lost in another country
maybe on another planet
where the politicians
steal away a own culture, religion and the values
from the souls of children.

I am lost in another country
maybe on another planet
where primary school children
do love each other naked and intimate
in the bushes of the park.

I am lost in another country
maybe on another planet
where drug addiction
is the in thing
among children and their friends.

I am lost in another country
maybe on another planet
where foreign criminals
possess real estate, hijack cars
and stay and live at about any place.

I am lost in another country
maybe on another planet
where people see almost any other thing
to possess something divine
and think that they are equal to the Lord.

I am lost in another country
maybe on another planet
where the former system
totally declining
where now in the havoc people wander along
without any humanity in them.

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
