The ocean beats against the shore, hear the waves surge

锋芒自敢问天有多高

The talented will dare to ask how high the heavens are
天地容我随心所欲走一遭
tiān dì róng wǒ suí xīn suǒ yù zǒu yī zāo

清俊竹林不掩 春风轻寒料峭

Walking down memory lane wearing the same clothes as before

In this vast wasteland, my infatuation remains the same
何谓正邪言之凿凿

What is the meaning of good and evil, say it with certainty
人云亦云当真可笑
rén yún yì yún dàng zhēn kě xiào
It’s laughable to echo others’ views
