Thanks a lot for the wonderful song. It's moving to think about the fate and feeling of migrant workers. My grandfather had to live like that during the twenties in Germany and it gives me the feeling of a universal bond to think of Chen Xing, his peers, and their struggles.

Is there any chance, we could get a rough translation of the lyrics, please? I know, it's a lot to ask.
