枪炮与玫瑰:你在自掘坟墓



(福禄祯祥11月25日文)下午特意听了Guns N' Roses(枪炮与玫瑰,或曰“枪花”)摇滚乐队演唱的歌曲Chinese Democracy(中国民主)。不但从头至尾听完了,为了确认歌词,还一连听了好几遍。

如此认真地聆听摇滚音乐,对我来说是破天荒的。

音乐,我觉得和其他摇滚歌曲没什么区别,聒噪,不是我喜欢的格调;歌词,写得太好了,表达的正是中国人的心声。

正因为歌词入木三分,所以此曲只应外国有,天朝能得几回闻?也正因此曲,断了整张专辑在中国的销路。

看看《Chinese Democracy(中国民主)》的歌词是如何“恶毒攻击中国”(《环球时报》语)的。

(中英文歌词都是我从网上随便搜索到的,可能不是官方版本)

Chinese Democracy

It don't really matter
You'll find out for yourself
No it don't really matter
You're gonna leave this thing to
Somebody else

If they missionaries
Real time visionaries
Sitting in a Chinese school
To view my dis-infatu-ation
I know that I'm a classic case
Watch my disenchanted face
Blame it on the Falun Gong
They've seen the end and you can't hold on now

Cause it would take a lot more hate than you
To stop the fascination
Even with an iron fist
Our baby got to rule the nation
But all I got is precious time

It don't really matter
You're gonna find out for yourself
No it don't really matter
So you can hear now from
Somebody else

Cause it would take a lot more time than you
I've got more masturbation
Even with your iron fist
More than you got to rule the nation
But all I got is precious time
More than you got to rule the nation
But all I got is precious time

It don't really matter
Gonna keep it to myself
No it don't really matter
So you can hear it now from
Somebody else

You think you got it all locked up inside
And if you beat them all up they'll die
Then you'll walk them home for the cells
Then now you’ll dig for your road back to hell
And with your ???? makes you stop
As if your eyes were their eyes you can tell
In your lack of time

中国民主

真的无关紧要
你会自行找到答案
确实无关紧要
问题可以留给别人来解决

如果他们是传教士
其实是真正空想家
坐在中国式的教育的校园内
被观查是否“思路混乱”
我知道我是典型的例子
我的脸孔告诉他们我的信念坚定不移
告诉他们我谴责**功
他们至此才看见你和**功划清界限

他们会用你无法承受的痛恨来停止你的信仰
停止你的迷恋
甚至动用军队
我们的下一代也将治理国家
但是我现在所拥有的 只是宝贵的时间罢了

真的无关紧要
你会自行找到答案
确实无关紧要
别人也会这样说

也许要过比你的生命更长的时间
其中我肯定会做更多的自慰
甚至你动用武力…
我会用我宝贵的时间
来等待改朝换代

真的无关紧要
要始终坚持自我
确实无关紧要
现在别人也会说这样的话

你认为你可以封闭所有的消息
你同样觉得武力也可以镇压一切
你可以将他们送进牢房
但是你所做的一切只是在自掘坟墓
什么才能使你停下
如果你能用他们的眼睛看待这一切的话
你或许会知道
你的时间不多了



网上流传着“新闻办”要求网站封杀《中国民主》的指示,真假无从核实。但国内视频分享网站上关于《中国民主》的视频都已悉数删除。相信这不是为了保护版权,而是为了维护政权。

或许是枪炮与玫瑰在中国真的很有人缘,也或者是真理部的反宣传的威力,现在《中国民主》这张专辑和同名主打歌曲已经在网上流传开来了。我下午很容易就下载到了。

多亏反宣传,我才知道有枪炮与玫瑰这个乐队。晚上我把整张专辑听了个遍。单论音乐,我比较喜欢的是第13曲《This I Love》,其中穿插的钢琴声和深情的倾诉,非常动人。

This I Love

And no I don't know why
She wouldn't say goodbye
Then it seems that I
I seen it in her eyes
And though it may not be wise
I still have to try
With all the love I have inside, I can't deny
I just can't let it die
Her heart's just like mine
She hold's the pain inside
So if you ask me why
She wouldn't say goodbye
I know somewhere inside
There is a special light, still shining bright
And even on the darkest night, she cannot deny
"chorus"
Oh mother how I try
To say it's all a lie
To watch the years go by
Compassions to the crime
Passions that won't die, in my heart
"chorus" x2
And no I don't why
She wouldn't say goodbye
It just might be that I
I see it in her eyes
And now it seems that I
Gave up my ghost of pride
I'll never say goodbye

(chorus)
So if she's somewhere near me
I hope to God she hears me
There's no one else who can ever make me feel I'm so alive
I hope she never leaves me
Please God you must believe me
I've searched the universe and found myself within her eyes

国内的音乐和音乐人受到不公正待遇自不待言,外国的音乐和音乐人受到封杀这也不是第一次了。奥运前,冰岛女歌星比约克(Bjork)在上海开演唱会时,“演唱未经文化部审核批准的歌曲”Declare Independence,高喊“Tibet、Tibet”,就不再受中国的“欢迎”了。据说还因此加强了其他艺人来华演出的政治审查。奥运期间,因出售一张关于Tibet的专辑,苹果的iTunes网站就被中国屏蔽了。(文/福禄祯祥http://www.fulue.com/

补充:

“我想你应该是一个成熟的成年人了吧?”

2008年11月25日外交部发言人秦刚举行例行记者会

问:美国一个乐队“枪与玫瑰”发行了一张名为《中国民主》的新专辑,中方对此有何反应?

答:据我了解,很多人不喜欢这类音乐,因为它太嘈杂,噪音太大。我想你应该是一个成熟的成年人了吧?
