人们已经忘记了生活的其他目的
People has forgotten the other purpose of life
都说金钱不是目的
All said money is not the purpose
但是没有金钱时
But when you have no money
生活的目的很难实现
The purpose of life is hard to achieve

没有金钱的人群

他们活得很艰难

我体会得到他们的感受

不是那么的好受

有的人会忍耐不住
Some people cannot resist
他们认为社会不公

没有金钱没有平等

一些普通的事情

我会写出来
I can write them out

我把事情说出来

这样大家心里的那点事情就公开了
So the thought inside people published

因为有人会替他们想
Because someone can think for them
替他们说

有些事情说出来比较好
Sometime it's better to speak out
有些事情不能说

说出来就不灵了
It wouldn't work if you speak out

但是没有什么真的交流
But there is no real communication
说完了就完了
Talking stops things stops
也该回家了
Its' time going home
诸如此类
Something like that

有人说话
Somebody is talking
有时是在大学的讲台上
Sometime is on the university rostrum
他们侃侃而谈
They speak like they know everything
激情四溅豪情万丈
Speak with fervour and enthusiasm
他们想使听众确信
They want the audience to believe
有时候他们自己都相信了
Sometime they made themselves to believe
这个是一件很了不起的事情
This is something great
你自己可以说服你自己
You can convince yourself

忙碌的人总是忙碌的
Busy people always busy
他们没有时间想这些事情
They don't have time to think about this
时间飞逝
Time flies
转眼就老了
You become old the moment you turn your eyes
