Geto Boys – Mind Playing Tricks On Me

脑袋抽筋了 Geto Boys – Mind Playing Tricks On Me 中英双语MV

这首歌每一段分别用第一人称的方式讲述了作为一个混社会压力很大的黑人的心理状态,有时候我是紧张过度,还是被迫害妄想症?或者说,就是脑子抽筋了,跟自己开了个大大的玩笑?


Geto Boys最初组建于1986年,是由Rap-A-Lot的老板James “Lil’ J” Smith 一手打造的,而且最初的阵容与现在的Geto Boys完全不一样,1988年他们的专辑反响异常惨淡,Lil’ J不希望自己一手创建的组合就此消亡,所以大换血招收了新人:
Willie ‘D’ Dennis和矮小的Bushwick Bill,还有Scarface

涅槃后Geto Boys 1991年的专辑We Can’t Be Stopped获得白金销量,而这首My Mind Playing Tricks on Me也可以称得上是HIP-HOP史上描绘个人内心世界最棒的的歌之一了

[Intro: Scarface]
我独自一人做在房间里,凝视着闪烁的烛光….
I sit alone in my four-cornered room starin’ at candles

怎么,这他妈已经开始了?
Oh that shit is on?

给你听点好东西,绝对牛B的……
Let me drop some shit like this here, real smooth

[Verse 1: Scarface]
深夜里,我难以入眠,转辗反侧
At night I can’t sleep, I toss and turn

黑暗中烛光闪闪,仿佛消逝的幻象
Candlesticks in the dark, visions of bodies bein’ burned

四壁皆注视着我
Four walls just starin’ at a nigga

我是个偏执狂,睡觉时手指得搁在扳机上
I’m paranoid, sleepin’ with my finger on the trigger

我的妈妈总是喋喋不休说我不务正业
My mother’s always stressin’ I ain’t livin’ right

因为我每次出门都得干上一架
But I ain’t goin’ out without a fight

于是,每次我闭上双眼
See, every time my eyes close

我都汗流不止,血涌鼻腔
I start sweatin’, and blood starts comin’ out my nose

总有人再盯着我【AK’,Scarface的前艺名叫做Akshen】
It’s somebody watchin the Ak’

但我不知道那是谁,于是我回头扫视
But I don’t know who it is, so I’m watchin’ my back

我总是再闭上双眼时见到他
I can see him when I’m deep in the covers

而当我张开双眼,这该死的却无影无踪了
When I awake I don’t see the motherfucker

他有顶和我一样的黑帽子
He owns a black hat like I own

和我一样的西服和拐杖
A black suit and a cane like my own

有些人说,“放松点,瓷”【B,Bro,兄弟】
Some might say, “Take a chill, B”

别他妈废话了!有个家伙想谋杀我呢!
But fuck that shit! There’s a nigga tryin’ to kill me

有一丝风吹草动我都得给枪上好膛
I’m poppin’ in the clip when the wind blows

每20秒我就要向窗外巡视一番
Every twenty seconds got me peepin’ out my window

看看是不是有埋伏等着我
Investigatin’ the joint for traps

检查我的电话是不是有人窃听
Checkin’ my telephone for taps

天呐,是个街边的女孩在窗外
I’m starin’ at the woman on the corner

你的大脑跟你开了个玩笑,这他妈太糟了!
It’s fucked up when your mind’s playin’ tricks on ya

[Verse 2: Willie D]
我赚着大钱,开着狠车
I make big money, I drive big cars

无人不知,无人不晓,我就像个电影巨星
Everybody know me, it’s like I’m a movie star

但是昨晚,出了些事儿
But late at night, somethin’ ain’t right

我开车时感觉有几个混蛋在跟踪我
I feel I’m being tailed by the same sucker’s headlights

是我上周放过的那个蠢货?
Is it that fool that I ran off the block?

还是我上周开枪的那个白痴?
Or is it that nigga last week that I shot?

或是我收了他五千美金
Or is it the one I beat for five thousand dollars

他以为买到了可卡因,但却是混着小麦粉的赝品【Gold Medal flour,小麦粉品牌】
Thought he had ‘caine but it was Gold Medal flour

掏了掏座位底下,翻出了我的家伙
Reach under my seat, grabbed my popper for the suckers

我可是个老手,我无所畏惧
Ain’t no use to me lyin’, I was scareder than a motherfucker

我的一个左勾拳可以打趴大力水手,然后降落
Hooked a left into Popeye’s and bailed out quick

就是这样,我来让这事儿了解
If it’s goin’ down let’s get this shit over with

好吧,他们来了,就像我猜的一样
Here they come, just like I figured

我已经准备扣动扳机了
I got my hand on the motherfuckin’ trigger

但我看到的一切真让我蛋疼
What I saw’ll make your ass start gigglin’

三个残疾的神经老头子
Three black, crippled and crazy senior citizens

我整天与枪械为伍
I live by the sword

我到哪都带着我的兄弟们,因为我有点妄想症
I take my boys everywhere I go, because I’m paranoid

我总是小心翼翼的四处侦查
I keep lookin’ over my shoulder and peepin’ around corners

我的脑子和我开了个玩笑
My mind is playin’ tricks on me

[Verse 3: Scarface]

时光流逝,我变得我做的真是太不可思议了
Day by day it’s more impossible to cope

我感觉我是唯一一个毒贩子
I feel like I’m the one that’s doing dope

我有点过度紧张了,以至于我的双手总颤抖不止
Can’t keep a steady hand because I’m nervous

每个周日早上我都忙得很
Every Sunday mornin’ I’m in service

因为我要去祷告以求宽恕
Prayin’ for forgiveness

想找个从这生意中退出的出口
And tryin’ to find an exit out the business

我知道真主在盯着我
I know the Lord is lookin’ at me

但目前为止,我仍然很难开心起来
But yet and still it’s hard for me to feel happy

我开车时总是摇摇晃晃
I often drift while I drive

有强烈的自杀倾向
Havin’ fatal thoughts of suicide

“bang”的一身就这么完蛋了
“Bang” and get it over with

那之后我就无忧无虑了,但那都是废话
And then I’m worry-free, but that’s bullshit

我有我的小孩儿
I got a little boy to look after

我死了的话,他们可就成了可怜的孤儿了
And if I died then my child would be a bastard

我曾有个水深火热中的女人
I had a woman down with me

她爱我爱的无法自拔
But to me it seemed like she was down to get me

她想把我从这一切中救出来
She helped me out in this shit

但对我来说她只是个婊子而已
But to me she was just another bitch

现在她回娘家了
Now she’s back with her mother

但我意识到我爱她
Now I’m realizing that I love her

现在我感到孤独寂寞
Now I’m feelin’ lonely

我的大脑和我开了玩笑
My mind is playin’ tricks on me

[Verse 4: Bushwick Bill]
今年的万圣节是个周末
This year Halloween fell on a weekend

我们Geto Boys也玩了次“不给糖就捣乱”
Me and Geto Boys are trick-or-treatin’

到处抢着小孩的包
Robbin’ little kids for bags

直到一个老家伙在我们屁股后面出现
Till an old man got behind our ass

于是我们放快了脚步
So we speeded up the pace

回头一看,这家伙就在我们面前
Took a look back, and he was right before our face

他绝对是个短跑天才
He’d be in for a squabble no doubt

于是我对着他的嘴就是一拳
So I swung and hit the nigga in his mouth

他应声倒地
He was goin’ down, we figured

我们看了看,这不是个平常的家伙
But this wasn’t no ordinary nigga

这家伙至少有2米多【Bushwick Bill只有1.34】
He stood about six or seven feet

妈的,这是我噩梦中的家伙
Now, that’s the nigga I’d be seein’ in my sleep

于是我们三个一起拳脚相加
So we triple-teamed on him

给了这家伙一顿海扁 【B’s,blows】
Droppin them motherfuckin’ B’s on him

一拳又一拳,血花四溅
The more I swung the more blood flew

完事之后我的兄弟们都散了
Then he disappeared and my boys disappeared, too

霎时间我感觉我是个恶魔
Then I felt just like a fiend

这哪里是万圣节
It wasn’t even close to Halloween

街上简直暗无天日
It was dark as fuck on the streets

我懊恼地敲打着水泥墙,血手模糊
My hands were all bloody, from punchin’ on the concrete

真他妈操蛋
God damn, homey

我的大脑和我开了一个玩笑
My mind is playin’ tricks on me
