Abandoned Green Village in China

A once prosperous fishing village, this green village is completed deserted in present day China; nature has reclaimed its existing civilization. Located on Goqui Island at the mouth of Yangtze river, the mysterious village has been captured by an unknown Shanghai-based photographer. Each image details nature’s invasion: every house is covered by ivy and vine, which makes for a spectacular, majestic view.

Oraindik ume bat zinen agertu zinenean      You were still a child when you appeared
eta oraindik laino batean,                               and you’re still on a cloud,
noren zain?                                                    waiting for whom?
Zure gelako leihotik mundura begira,          Seeing the world from your room window,
han urrun zure ametsa bizi da.                      your dream lives there, far away.
Gezur hau bizitzea ez da zure patua,            Living this lie is not your fate,
beste biderik ez al da?                                   isn’t there any other way?

Errepika:                                                          Chorus:
Aizu, non zaude? Non zaude? (x2)             Hey, where are you? Where are you? (x2)

Askatasunaren bila, oihu baten jabe               Looking for freedom, owner of a yell
astindu arren baretuz,                                    that calms downs even though
nahi gabe.                                                        you intensify it.
Maitasunaren usaina: itxurakeria                    Love’s scent: hypocrisy
argazki baten atzean estalia                           hidden behind a photograph.
Dena amaitu                                                    Thinking nervously 
dela pentsatzen urduri                                     that everything has finished
eta oraindik ez da hasi                                    and it hasn’t started yet.

Errepika                                                           Chorus

Iluntasunaren deiadar goxoak                          The sweet calling of darkness
amaiera onik ez dauka.                                     hasn’t a happy ending.
Apurtu katea, ez izan beldurrik,                        Break your chains, don’t fear,
ez esnatu oraindik!                                           don’t wake up yet!

Errepika                                                           Chorus

Non zaude, non zaude?                                 Where are you, where are you?
Non, non, non, non zaude? (x3)                Where, where, where, where are you? (x3)
