    Embrace Life By 新工人艺术团 (New Workers Art Troupe)Album: 为劳动者歌唱! Video extracted from ” Deconstructing Foxconn” which filmed by Jack Qiu Lyrics Chinese : 《拥抱生命》 我们走在城市的边缘曾经留下多少沧桑的脚印许多愿望都已成云烟太多汗水也已变得遥远我们生存在灰色的空间不眠的夜晚只有星星能看见虽然生命在不断的凋谢却换来了城市的天空蔚蓝孤独的走在城市的路上多少次欲哭无泪的惆怅但愿那些破灭的希望都化作成功之后的回想 English translation: Embrace life We walk along the outskirts of the cityLeaving footprints of world changeMany wishes have become wisps of smokeToo much sweat has fallenOur lives are in a gray spaceSleepless nights have nothing but stars to seeAlthough life is always withering awayInstead it has made the city’s sky blueWalking alone on the city streetWanting to cry without the melancholy of tearsBut hope those vanished dreamsCan become memories . . . after we succeed
