I don't want to be myself, 

just wanna BE LIKE YOU

Alright. First things first - thank you for English subtitles again! We can discover here a perfect snapped mentality in our Social Media generation. TRASH captured nerves of our Social "Fake" life, question ourselves ironical about the event and to-be-seen industry.

 

Going through the M/V storyline, it holds yourself a kind of mirror to ourselves. Just being the role of a daily worker. Just imagine, that everything could be better, successful, easier! In between of a rock bottom life and extra hours from the main role’s office job, the all-problem-resolving "magic cure" appeared. Our protagonist grabs it to evolve being well-known, surrounded by material goods and money in society.

Can´t lose something I never owned,

I wish I knew nothing

But soon, our main character starts to wakes up and recognize this shallow world. At the end, this person here lost himself in fame, money and somewhere else. Just to become someone for others. TRASH visualizes here sarcastic clear this key point. In all this more and more image-affected society, you must stay true to yourself.

 

This record here shows me again, why I still listen to them over years! Hitting the zeitgeist of society, compared with cool sounds! Let's see what comes next!

Please check out TRASH´s newest record! :)

BE LIKE YOU 變成你

I don't want to be myself, just wanna be like you

Carefree and stress-free, dripping in gold and silver

Cause I don't want to be me anymore

Call me sick, it's ok, just let me be like you

 

I want to be someone usefull so badly

Just fart and in the spotlight will be on you

Just hum something

and the whole world harmonizes for you

How great is that? All your dreams come true

Like a magic trick that no one can see through

Like a goddamn Super Mario

who ate the Super Mushrooms

You can fly high ande dive deep

Having countless masks to keep the virus away

 

You're right, Im just jealous

Don't challange me for the level of immaturity

 

Im not ok, here I am, now all the spotlight is on me

You want it?

Here you go, I´ll tell the haters to go hurt you down

Socializing is driving me crazy

Don't wanna get hit by the bullets,

I rather be nobody

I´m standing high up here, 

but it doesn't  help me cut down on the drugs

 

I don't want to be myself, just wanna be like you

Can't lose something I never owned,

I wish I knew nothing

Cause I don't want to be me anymore

Call me sick, it's ok, just let me be like you

(be like you)
