Humanity, the first album of the album series Clean Your Heart, published by Taihe Rye Music, Beijing, which led to the success of winning “The Most Breathtaking Album of The Year”, awarded by SINA.com. The inspiration of the theme - Time Tunnel, comes from Return to Innocence, by Enigma.
When we are young and life is new
Our every dream and wish can be true
We pray that god will only speed up the time
So much to do
But then the years go rushing by
No time to stop or wonder why
Those tomorrows have become yesterdays
And you see everything has changed but the world and its ways
- Time Tunnel
