(Crossroad
Music and lyrics by Sam Yang
Composed by Fire Ex.)

生活佇一個無聲的世界
揣無過去 嘛毋敢想未來
稀微的冷風吹來 一陣悲哀
(Living in a soundless world
We found no past, and dare not think about the future
A cold breeze comes by, and I felt pathetic)

掩崁著心內上深的憤慨
閣較無奈 也著來忍耐
稀微的冷風吹來 一陣悲哀
有錢判生無錢判死 佇這個時代
(I covered up the indignation in my heart
Even if I can’t help it, I must still endure it
A cold breeze comes by, and I felt pathetic
The rich got off the hook, the poor sentenced to death – in this era)

我徛咧人性的十字路口
看起來正義是茫茫渺渺
你捌講情佮義是基本的道理
莫連按怎做人攏袂記
(I stood at the crossroad of human nature
It seems like justice is all but slim
You once said goodwill and righteousness are basic principles in life
Don’t you remember what makes you human)

我徛咧人性的十字路口
看起來正義是茫茫渺渺
敢講情佮義 拄著名佮利
就會漸漸痲痺 化無去
(I stood at the crossroad of human nature
It seems like justice is all but slim
When goodwill and righteousness clash with fame and self-interest
They become numb and fade away)

較早的道義到底佇佗位
按怎連尊嚴攏放棄
按怎我無勇氣 按怎我無勇氣 啊~~~
(Where goes the earlier justice
Why did you give up even your dignity
Why am I lack of courage, why am I lack of courage)

我徛咧人性的十字路口
看起來正義是茫茫渺渺
你捌講情佮義是基本的道理
莫連按怎做人攏袂記
(I stood at the crossroad of human nature
It seems like justice is all but slim
You once said goodwill and righteousness are basic principles in life
Don’t you remember what makes you human)

我徛咧人性的十字路口
看起來正義是茫茫渺渺
敢講情佮義 拄著名佮利
就會漸漸痲痺 化無去
(I stood at the crossroad of human nature
It seems like justice is all but slim
When goodwill and righteousness clash with fame and self-interest
They become numb and fade away)
