If-I-Fail

If I Fail 这首歌气势磅礴,歌词也很有意境。为了凑格式,歌词的翻译略显「over-translation」。

The sea is rough
The spindrift cold
The bridge is under fire
惊涛骇浪
刺骨冰凉
火蔓船桥
烈焰飞扬

The master left the sinking ship as waves were rising higher
我主已去
波涛汹涌
将船埋葬

Unbaptized
Unconverted
我未受洗
我未皈依

Just a henchman on the verge of throwing high aims overboard to feed the surge
渺小仆人
与船偕亡

But if I fail or if I fall
I’ll be aid and consolation
然而
我若失败
我若灭亡
吾以吾躯
弥足慰籍

If I range or if I crawl
I will shelter you my love
蹒跚行走
艰难爬行
亦庇护你
我的爱人

If I starve or if I sear
I’ll be faith and inspiration
忍饥挨饿
饱受煎熬
亦为南针
苦海慈航

Raise my hope and ease the fear
I’ll be there to back you up
赐我希望
减我恐惧
吾与汝偕
永世不忘

The sand like glow
The desert wide
The sun truncated brains
黄沙似火
广袤无垠
太阳蚀脑

The well dried up and thoughts are like a caravan in chains
井水干涸
思想禁锢
如车上锁

Bedraggled and ahungered
风尘仆仆
饥肠辘辘

Just a traveler in search of confidence and devotion before it burns
一介旅人
虚化之前
找寻信望

A lightning strike on killing fields
The soil is soaked with blood
A deafening burst
杀戮之野
闪电降临
黄土染血
咆哮疯狂

The smell of death and faces blurred with mud
死亡之息
面容沾土

Ingenuous
Blameless
天真纯洁
完美无双

A peace seeker in the jam
陷身桎梏
渴望和平

But I’m stuck in here till judgment day on ruined land
毁灭之墟
进退维谷
只有等待
末日审判
