about

After 4 full albums in two years Alpine Decline retreated back underground throughout 2013 to write and record their fifth full-length “Go Big Shadow City”, again with friend and co-conspirator Yang Haisong. Cataloging experiences both lived and fictional ”Go Big Shadow City” is the sound of Beijing itself, as heard from the outside. Cigarette vapors caked onto countless km’s of 2” tape, street-level, ear-burning progress filtered through carcinogenic dust.

Track Name: Mid-Level Functionary in a Criminal Syndicate
wake up in big shadow city open up the blinds... see the light or see the white i fortify my mind.
silence is a thing that only i can talk about... out into big shadow city i must silence doubt.

kindness is the kind of thing that i can do without… rules become the only thing that i can't do without:
keep your heel on all the heads below you all the time; cigarettes to those above you, move up through the grind.

blindness is the kind of thing that i can't do without… silence is a thing that only i can talk about.
tired of barbed wired walls and tired of the fumes, tired of big shadow city, tired of the goons

在黑社会中的中层职务

醒来在大影市,打开百叶窗, 看到光明或看到百,我强化我的心灵
沉默是我唯一可以谈的,走进大影市,我必须疑问

善良之类的话是我做没有,规则成为我唯一不能没有,
让你的脚跟在所有头下面所有的时间,你把香烟给上面的人,获得升职

失明之类的话是我做没有,沉默是我唯一可以谈的,
厌倦带刺铁丝网,厌倦烟雾,厌倦大影市,厌倦暴徒
Track Name: The Visions Run Dry
it's getting harder, harder every day.
when i'm broken put me out on display

at night i'm dreaming, at night i'm dreaming times ten.
then i wake up: no more visions again

then i'm over, over out of the way.
talk to me normal, see if i can hear straight

不再梦见

越来越难,每天更难
当我心碎了,就把我在显示

在晚上我做梦,在晚上我做梦十倍
然后我醒了,又不再梦见

然后我过了,闪开了以后
跟我正常说话,尝试如果我还能听到
Track Name: Walk With Mask
walk with mask

i’m called a test rat / new kinds of street combat / well known for panic attacks, alright?

cut down on contact / bomb shelter bivouac / this is the modern city life

suck on exhaust pipe / burning out celestial lights / heart wracked and it’s straight to the mat, alright?

步行带着面具

我叫实验鼠/几种新的街道战斗/众所周知的惊恐发作,好吗?

减少接触/防空洞露营/这是现代城市的生活

吸排气管/烧出天体灯/心碎了,直线跌落在垫子上,好吗?
Track Name: Hang Around the Creases
it's called the wayside
it's out of sight
you'll find no profit
you'll find no light
but hang around the creases

if you want some fire
if you want some bite
to be a stranger
without a ride
hang around the creases

流连折痕

这里叫路边
淡出人们的视线
你不会找到利润
你不会找到光
可是在折痕浪荡

如果你要一些火
如果你要一些吃的
当个陌生人
无一搭
流连折痕
Track Name: My Smokestack Only Burns at Night
can't back off on foreign treasure
can't back off on wild pleasure
can't back off until we get it right

then we try more desperate measures
then we try to change the weather
then we try to say that it's alright

the nuclear bomb is already armed -
my smokestack only burns at night

then we get toxic whiteout
one more day with moral wipeout
ever slow adjusting to the bite

then we become horror fiction
then we suck the next addiction
then we make predictions that it’s right

只在晚上我们的烟囱燃烧

不能拒绝外汇宝
不能拒绝野生的乐趣
不能拒绝任何事等到我们做得对

然后我们尝试更多绝望的措施
然后我们要改变天气
然后我们说这是对的

核弹就绪
只在晚上我们的烟囱燃烧

然后我们有毒修正液
多一天我们的道德就没了
适应改变很慢

然后我们成为恐怖小说
然后我们吸下瘾
然后我们作出正确的预测
Track Name: Don't Ask Questions
hey now man wanna see the sunrise? steal their wine and race to the moon?
head up man and don't ask questions. head up man while it falls into ruins.

get out man get out of the city, float up like cold smoke to the moon.
hey now man with slow adjustments chill your blood and you’ll take to it soon

oh yeah.
alright.

hey now man with the empty chamber, hey now man in the empty room:
head up man and don't ask questions. head up man when it falls into ruins

不要问问题

哥们,你要看日出吗?要偷他们的酒?比赛进行到月亮吗?
头抬起以及不要问问题,头抬起落入遗址时

哥们,离去吧,要离去这个城市,上浮至月亮就像冷烟似的
哥们,这些慢慢的调整要寒气你的血,你很快就习惯了

哦耶,
好吧,

嘿,现在有空室的人,在空室的人
头抬起以及不要问问题,头抬起落入遗址时
Track Name: Fearless in the Face of Fate
well we finally fled from the sacred mountain, leaving all our ghosts behind. and i held my head up into the fountain, hoping i could change my mind.

no way can i get by

did i face my fate with a taste of doubt and flicker in a dimming eye? then erase my name in the wake of drought and leaving nothing there to find?

no way can i get by

so i drank the lead from the poisoned fountain, hoping i could save my mind. and the strangeness bled from the ancient mountain, leaving all the ghosts behind.

no way can i get by

大胆在面对命运

我们终于逃跑圣山,我们所有的鬼都放弃了,然后我的头在喷泉,希望我能改变自己的思维

没有办法生存

我有领略疑问的面对命运然后闪烁调光眼吗?然后干旱开始时删除了我的名字,留下没什么可找到吗?

没有办法生存

从中毒喷泉喝了铅,希望我能拯救我的心灵,陌生感来自古山,所有的鬼都放弃了

没有办法生存
Track Name: Boss
off.
my head is off
off.
i'm the party boss

and i'm no replica

no.
my favorite word
no.
it’s mine alone

老板

切断
我的头被切断
切断

还有我不是个复制品

没有
我最喜欢的词
没有
这是我一个人的
Track Name: A Brief Assessment of the Current Situation
still i'm just as lonely as before.
still i'm just as phony as before.

then i walked into a riddle… then i’m dropping through the middle.

still i'm just as hungry as before.
nothing left to numb me like before.

walk with mask into a riddle… then i'm mouthing shameless drivel…

then i'm running and i swear i’m not someone who’s come undone.

still i am committed as before.
nowhere else to go but go forward.

then i walked into a riddle… then i'm slurring shameless drivel...
then i'm running and i swear i’m not someone who’s come undone.
though i'm running in a maze i’m not someone who’s come undone.

目前的情况简短评估

我还是像以前一样寂寞
我还是像以前一样虚假

然后我走进一个谜语, 然后我下探通过中间

我还是像以前一样饿,什么都没有留下麻痹我像以前一样

带着面具走进一个谜语,然后我说无耻的胡说八道,

我还是像以前一样待发,
无处可去,但前进

带着面具走进一个谜语,然后我说无耻的胡说八道,
然后我赛跑,我发誓,我不是个分崩离析的人
虽然我在迷宫中赛跑,我不是个分崩离析的人
Track Name: Pity the Pacified
pity the pacified and pity their girls and smokes:
they got their hands in madness, they got their teeth in throats.

pity the pacified and pity their love of wine:
although we like to deride ‘em, they don’t forget their lines or mine.

theirs is a cynical crime: thrive in desperate times.
you don't like it, that's fine.

pity the pacified and pity their love of dice:
they got a taste for violence, they got a taste for vice.

pity the pacified and pity the beast they run:
although we like to deride 'em, if they get off they're gone. but i’m--

--i’m for cessation of thirst, i side with the cursed.
you don't like it, that's fine.

my mind… i’m with the ancient line: what i write survives the grime.
you don't like it, that's fine.

怜悯安抚

怜悯安抚,怜悯他们的女儿和香烟,
他们的双手在疯狂,他们的牙齿在桑子里,

怜悯安抚,怜悯他们爱就,
虽然我们喜欢嘲笑他们,他们没有忘记他们和我们的台词,

他们的犯罪是很玩世不恭,兴旺在绝望时代,
你不喜欢的话这很好,

怜悯安抚,怜悯他们爱骰子游戏,
他们喜欢暴力,他们喜欢坏的东西

怜悯安抚,怜悯他们运行的系统,
虽然我们喜欢嘲笑他们,如果他们玩儿的话他们一走 ,不过我是

我愿意停止玩儿,但是我跟被诅咒的同意
你不喜欢的话这很好

我的心灵,我喜欢这段古老台词,我写的东西会生存,
你不喜欢的话这很好
Track Name: The Transmission Comes Apart
i been in places where the air is so thick you taste scum.
i been in places where you let your mind slip and you’re done.
it’s no fun.

** then transmission ends **

weather these curses, i’m trying my best to get stunned.
weather the thirst risk and press on my neck with your thumb.
go numb.

** then transmission comes apart **

...silence comes back down.

传输分崩离析

我已经于这么厚的空气之地方,你尝败类
我已经于失去你的心灵之地方,你被完了
这个不好玩,

然后传输结束了

经受这些诅咒,我尽我所能失去感觉
经受口渴的风险,用你的拇指按在我的脖子上
麻木

染后传输分崩离析

寂静回来
