【倒带和平】Peace Undone

As we fight for justice, peace becomes compromised in many ways.

过火的引擎
满脑沸腾的水蒸气
政治的洗礼
抚育争端和分歧

谁倒带和平
让仇恨苏醒
谁勾起激情
让众人争议

牺牲了罪恶感的良心
牺牲了诚意的声音
牺牲了真善美的心灵
为了正义
牺牲了和平

Translation:

An overheated engine
Fueled by a head full of steam
Brainwashed with politics
The brainchild of discrimination is born

Who can be blamed as peace is undone
as hatred is awakened
Who can be blamed as emotions go raw
as masses go into conflict

When conscience sacrificed its sense of guilt
When voices sacrificed its sincerity
When the soul sacrificed its kindness and beauty
When justice
Sacrificed peace


There have been many news and reports of gunshots,
bombings, videos of discrimination and mockery of 
groups over another. Sometimes, even leaders of countries
do so. People a hurt, wounds still raw, crimes yet to be 
forgiven and forgotten. And weeks later, another incident 
occurs. 

It seems as if the world is devolving into a state of tension. 
I pray for the world to put aside an overt sense of justice. 
There are many great inspirations amongst us, who we can
look for advice, and see a more well-rounded perspective 
before jumping in, blaming and shaming. Let’s do what we can
to keep some peace, before we unravel into chaos.
