演唱者纽约哈林说唱歌手Immortal Technique
歌曲出自他2001年的处子专辑Revolutionary Vol. 1
制作人44 Caliber采样了Henry Mancini的经典名曲Love Story
Dance With The Evil则是出自电影《蝙蝠侠》中小丑的一句台词:
Have you ever danced with the devil in the pale moonlight?

我认识一个真名叫Billy的家伙【Billy是常见的对William这个名字的简化昵称;故事的这位主角后面一直被称呼为Billy】
I once knew a nigga whose real name was William (Billy)

他整日只想着自己如何飞黄腾达
His primary concern, was making a million

成为最狠的赚钱机器,被人崇敬
Being the illest hustler, that the world ever seen

他总是幻想在梦中操着电影明星,吸着可卡因
He used to fuck moviestars and sniff coke in his dreams

如此糜烂的思想充斥着一个十三岁的脑袋
A corrupted young mind, at the age of thirteen

他从不知晓父亲为何人,而母亲曾吸毒成瘾
Nigga never had a father and his mom was a fiend

渐渐地,母亲远离毒品,清醒地面对新的世界
She put the pipe down, but for every year she was sober

而此时此刻,她的儿子却早大不同于往昔
Her sons heart simultaneously grew colder

他开始在街上鬼混,卖着毒品
He started hanging out selling bags in the projects

勾搭年轻的姑娘,寻觅着一夜情的机会【Hit and run prospects,指和女孩一夜情,此后再不联络】
Checking the young chicks, looking for hit and run prospects

他已深陷物质社会而无法自拔
He was fascinated by material objects

但是他明白钱买不到尊重与名望
But he understood money never bought respect

他发奋建立自己的名声,通过卖货和偷东西
He build a reputation cause he could hustle and steal

然而一天却失足被抓,他居然毫不犹豫都兜了底儿
But got locked once and didn’t hesitate to squeal

这让他一起混的家伙们勃然大怒,认为他太假了太缺了
So criminals he chilled with didn’t think he was real

当然我也从不爱和这种人打交道
You see me and niggas like this have never been equal

其实我最看不起就是这样的人了
I don’t project my insurecurities at other people

之后,他像毒瘾发作一样的无法抑制对尊重与名望的渴求
He fiended for props like addicts with pipes and needles

他觉得他必须做些什么,以证明自己是个恶魔
So he felt he had to prove to everyone he was evil

一个乳臭未干的孩子有着无限的潜能,未来有无数可能
A feeble-minded young man with infinite potential

而所有贫民窟滋养的资本主义产物
The product of a ghetto breed capatalistic mental

都是辍学去街上卖大麻
Coincidentally dropped out of school to sell weed

与魔鬼共舞,不停的呼直到血液模糊了双眼
Dancing with the devil, smoked until his eyes would bleed

而Billy的贪婪心促使他对只做小买卖感到厌烦
But he was sick of selling trees and gave in to his greed

每个意欲通过街头路飞黄腾达的家伙,都不曾对未来深谋远虑
Everyone trying to be trife never face the consequences

你也许只是小打小闹了一个月
You probably only did a month for minor offences

去问问被判终身监禁的人,如果有重新选择的机会他们会怎么做吧
Ask a nigga doing life if he had another chance

但是却总有人明知路途险恶,却迷途不知返
But then again there’s always the wicked that knew in advance

在寒冷悬崖般的街头不知疲倦地与魔鬼共舞
Dance forever with the devil on a cold cell block

当你强奸,谋杀,卖着货时你就在与魔鬼共舞
But that’s what happens when you rape, murder and sell rock

魔鬼曾是上帝,坠落的天使
Devils used to be gods, angels that fell from the top

我们同归殊途,因为我们都在同一个熔炉被放逐,无路可逃
There’s no diversity because we’re burning in the melting pot

于是Billy开始抢劫,开始为所欲为
So Billy started robbing niggas, anything he could do

他得把他在街上的尊重重新打回来
He’d get his respect back, in the eyes of his crew

他开始在街上因为一句话就跟人大动干戈
Starting fights over little shit, up on the block

开始卖Crack给自己的兄弟和毒瘾的母亲们【Crack,低纯度的可卡因。一般毒贩子是不会卖货给自己的朋友的,Biggie的Ten Crack Commandments也曾说到 Never sell no crack where you rest at】
Stepped up to selling mothers and brothers the crack rock

在Crack界像个劳模一样玩命的加班加点
Working overtime for making money for the crack spot

现在他已成为销售冠军了,他想要卖点更狠的可卡因【Crack纯度略低,利润不如更纯的高】
Hit the jackpot and wanted to move up to cocaine

满脑子都是过上像疤面煞星那样的逍遥生活 【scarface,疤面煞星,经典黑帮电影】
Fulfilling the scarface fantasy stuck in his brain

Billy厌倦了只在家门口小打小闹
Tired of the block niggas treating him the same

他想要加入真正的杀人不眨眼的帮派
He wanted to be major like the cut throats and the thugs

但当他毛遂自荐时,暴徒们对他却并不重视
But when he tried to step to ’em, niggas showed him no love

他们说:任何傻B懦夫都可以贩毒
They told him any motherfucking coward can sell drugs

任何有枪的家伙都会给子弹上膛
Any bitch nigga with a gun, can bust slugs

任何人穿上红衣服都能装得像Blood成员一样 【Blood,洛杉矶著名黑帮,以红色装束为标志】
Any nigga with a red shirt can front like a blood

甚至都能在夜店门口开枪
Even Puffy smoked the motherfucker up in a club

但只有真正的暴徒可以一刀一刀刺向别人,直到一命呜呼
But only a real thug can stab someone till they die

然后站在死人的面前,凝视死者双眼
Standing in front of them, staring straight into their eyes

Billy意识到这帮人非常谨慎
Billy realized that these men were well guarded

暴徒们在试探他,好看看他是不是真的有点本事
And they wanted to test him, before business started

他的任务是强奸一个女人,以此证明他是多么冷酷
Suggested raping a bitch to prove he was cold hearted

现在一道选择题摆在面前,是浪子回头
So now he had a choice between going back to his life

或者咬咬牙继续走下去
Or making money with made men, up in the cife

而他的名车梦钻石梦让他毅然选择了后者
His dreams about cars and ice, made him agree

做个真正的暴徒一直是他的毕生目标
A hardcore nigga is all he ever wanted to be

于是他和暴徒们约在周五夜里3点前碰头
And so he met them friday night at a quarter to three

每个意欲通过街头路飞黄腾达的家伙,都不曾对未来深谋远虑
Everyone trying to be trife never face the consequences

你也许只是小打小闹了一个月
You probably only did a month for minor offences

去问问被判终身监禁的人,如果有重新选择的机会他们会怎么做吧
Ask a nigga doing life if he had another chance

但是却总有人明知路途险恶,却迷途不知返
But then again there’s always the wicked that knew in advance

在寒冷悬崖般的街头不知疲倦地与魔鬼共舞
Dance forever with the devil on a cold cell block

当你强奸,谋杀,卖着货时你就在与魔鬼共舞
But that’s what happens when you rape, murder and sell rock

魔鬼曾是上帝,坠落的天使
Devils used to be gods, angels that fell from the top

我们同归殊途,因为我们都在同一个熔炉被放逐,无路可逃
There’s no diversity because we’re burning in the melting pot

天下着雨,他们在街头慢慢开着车溜达
They drove around the projects slow while it was raining

呼着,喝着,开着低俗玩笑
Smoking blunts, drinking and joking for entertainment

直到发现了一个形只影单的女人
Until they saw a woman on the street walking alone

凌晨三点,刚下班在回家的路上
Three in the morning, coming back from work, on her way home

他们悄悄的下了车跟踪着她
And so they quietly got out the car and followed her

匆匆的穿过街区,黑暗正慢慢笼罩她的身影
Walking through the projects, the darkness swallowed her

忽然,他们用她的衣服盖住她的头,按倒在地
They wrapped her shirt around her head and knocked her onto the floor

现在是你大展身手的时候了
This is it kid now you got your chance to be raw

于是Billy拉住了她的头发
So Billy yoked her up and grabbed the chick by the hair

把她拖进了个没人的房子
And dragged her into a lobby that had nobody there

女孩疯狂的挣扎,但还是被拖着上了楼梯
She struggled hard but they forced her to go up the stairs

他们来到屋顶,把女孩按倒在地
They got to the roof and then held her down on the ground

对她喊着“他妈的闭上嘴”
Screaming shut the fuck up and stop moving around

她被上衣盖着脸,她叫越发的大声
The shirt covered her face, but she screamed and clawed

Billy开始踹她,直到踢烂了她的下巴
So Billy stomped on the bitch, until he broken her jaw

这帮混蛋非常清楚他们在干什么
The dirty bastards knew exactly what they were doing

他们继续踢着那个女人,直到听到肋骨断裂的声音,她几乎动不了了
They kicked her until they cracked her ribs and she stopped moving

衣服浸满了鲜血,她已经哭不出声音
Blood leaking through the cloth, she cried silently

然而,他们仍旧强奸了她
And then they all proceeded to rape her violently

Billy第一个来,而后一人来了一轮
Billy was meant to go first, but each of them took a turn

风雪残云中,他们捂着她的嘴,这让她的嗓子几乎着了火
Ripping her up, and choking her until her throat burned

她破碎的下巴含糊着什么,但他们毫不关心
Her broken jaw mumbled for God but they weren’t concerned

当一切就绪,她躺在血泊之中,伤痕累累
When they were done and she was lying bloody, broken and bruised

其中一个家伙拿出一把新的手枪【Twenty-Two,洛克22式手枪】
One of them niggas pulled out a brand new twenty-two

他们告诉Billy这女孩是个目击者
They told him that she was a witness of what she’d gone through

如果Billy干掉她,他们保证Billy可以顺利混进帮派
And if he killed her he was guaranteed a spot in the crew

他沉思了一下,看看几乎已经断了气的女孩
He thought about it for a minute, she was practically dead

然后弯下身子用枪口对准了她的右脑
And so he leaned over and put the gun right to her head

我越坠越低,已无法回头【这句采样自Mobb Deep的”Survival of the Fittest”】
I’m falling and I can’t turn back

我越坠越低,已无法回头
I’m falling and I can’t turn back

就在扣动扳机结束女孩生命的前一刻
Right before he pulled the trigger, and ended her life

他脑子里浮现出了白金盘子里满满的可卡因和钻石
He thought about the cocaine with the platinum and ice

他和新兄弟们混在一起感到异常强大
And he felt strong standing along with his new brothers

他猛地收起手枪,掀开了蒙在头上的衣服
Cocked the gat to her head, and pulled back the shirt cover

但是他目睹的一切让他大脑一片空白
But what he saw made him start the cringe and stutter

因为躺在地上的他的亲生母亲正盯着他!
Cause he was staring into the eyes of his own mother

母亲背过身去哭泣,他的儿子已无可救药
She looked back at him and cried, cause he had forsaken her

母亲哭得越来越猛烈,甚至比刚才被强奸时更甚
She cried more painfully, than when they were raping her

Billy感觉整个世界停止转动,他思绪万千却不能自己
His whole world stopped, he couldn’t even contemplate

他的贪婪心成功的战胜了他的人生
His corruption had successfully changed his fate

他回想起妈妈总是很晚才回家
And he remembered how his mom used to come home late

辛苦的工作别无所求,只为了自己
Working hard for nothing, cause now what was he worth

Billy无颜以对他的妈妈,这个给他生命的女人
He turned away from the woman that had once given him birth

他对着天空嚎啕大哭,感觉前所未有的孤独与无助
And crying out to the sky cause he was lonely and scared

但是回应的只有恶魔,因为上帝并不在那
But only the devil responded, cause god wasn’t there

那一刻他感觉一切空寂而又寒冷
And right then he knew what it was to be empty and cold

于是,他纵身一跃,跳下了屋顶
And so he jumped off the roof and died with no soul

有人说死亡会让人解脱、重新开始,但我不信
They say death take you to a better place but I doubt it

之后,匪徒了杀了他的妈妈,绝口不提此事
After that they killed his mother, and never spoke about it

现在听好了,因为我说的一切都是亲身经历!
And listen cause the story that I’m telling is true

因为当时我也在场,强奸他妈妈也有我一份!
Cuz I was there with Billy Jacobs and I raped his mom too

现在魔鬼总是纠缠着我,阴魂不散
And now the devil follows me everywhere that I go

事实上,我知道他就在你们这帮观众当中
Infact I’m sure he’s standing among one of you at my shows

而现在每个街道都有这样那样的小Billy的故事
And every street cypher listening to little thugs flow

他可能就站在你边上,而你一无所知
He could be standing right next to you, and you wouldn’t know

恶魔在自私而邪恶的内心中滋养生长
The devil grows inside the hearts of the selfish and wicked

无论你的皮肤是白色,棕色,黄色或者黑色
White, brown, yellow and black colored is not restricted

当你踏上此路,你的前程已盖棺定论
You have a self destructive destiny when you’re afflicted

你会成为上帝之子,坠落的上帝之子
And you’ll be one of god’s children that fell from the top

我们同归殊途,因为我们同在一个熔炉里燃烧
There’s no diversity because we’re burning in the melting pot

所以当恶魔想与你共舞,你最好说“不”
So when the devil wants to dance with you, you better say never

因为可能这会是你生命的最后的舞步
Because the dance with the devil might last you forever

    And so he met them friday night at a quarter to three
    是不是3点45啊

    • ABEL (Author)

      a quarter to three 是2点45,在翻译说唱的时候,因为Rap语速很快,所以经常需要把不痛不痒的内容进行简化,以方便观众跟上节奏,快速阅读,理解内容。 所以此处直接翻译为3点,对整首歌我觉得没有影响。这是属于翻译者的微操。
