BackgroundEdit


This song was first uploaded to Nico Nico Douga on February 8, 2011. It is Kemu's third song using GUMI and his second song to reach over 1 million views.
The song features the story of Natsuhiko Shidou, who receives predictions about the future on a card, which at first start off as minor but gradually get more serious. He decides to avoid death using the premonitions, but he later finds out that if he keeps using the predictions to keep himself alive, everyone else will die, and his long life would be lonely. What's more is that he can no longer stay alive without using the premonitions, or he will meet a swift death. He tries to go on, but unfortunately the last prediction sent by god says that no matter how much he struggles, he will die tomorrow.

Lyrics & TranslationEdit




Kanji
Romaji
『明日の午後は雨が降る』と ぽつり
"Ashita no gogo wa ame ga furu" to potsuri
耳鳴り 啓示 そんな何か 『気をつけて』
Miminari keiji sonna nani ka “ki wo tsukete”
過程の収束 にわか雨の 標的たちは
Katei no shuusoku niwakaame no hyouteki-tachi wa
誰も知らない これはつまり 未来予知
Dare mo shiranai kore wa tsumari mirai yochi


『明日バスに乗るな』 『事故が起こるから』
"Ashita BASU ni noru na” “jiko ga okoru kara”
最適な温度で 僕は 生きてく
Saiteki na ondo de boku wa ikiteku


イカサマライフゲイム 雁首(がんくび)揃えたジョーカーは
Ikasama RAIFU GEIMU gankubi soroeta JOOKAA wa
嗤(わら)う やがて 可能性は消え去った
Warau yagate kanousei wa kiesatta
いつか見た憧憬(しょうけい)穢(けが)れてく 夢はマガイモノ
Itsuka mita shoukei kegareteku yume wa magaiMONO
嗤(わら)う ひとり 祈れ 導きのままに
Warau hitori inore michibiki no mama ni


『明日のデートには行くな』と ぽつり
"Ashita no DEETO ni wa iku na" to potsuri
陰をさす 寒気 抑え込んで 札を引いた
Kage wo sasu samuke osaekonde fuda wo hiita
過程の収束 にわか雨の 標的たちは
Katei no shuusoku niwakaame no hyouteki-tachi wa
何も知らない 僕がそれを 選んだって
Nani mo shiranai boku ga sore wo eran datte


誰かが言ってた 『あの子は独りで』
Dare ka ga itteta “ano ko wa hitori de”
帰りのホームから 足を滑らせ
Kaeri no hoomu kara ashi wo suberase


イカサマライフゲイム 雁首(がんくび)揃えたジョーカーは
Ikasama RAIFU GEIMU gankubi soroeta jookaa wa
嗤(わら)う やがて 感情は消え去った
Warau yagate kanjou wa kiesatta
それでも存在理由など 後で決めるもの
Soredemo sonzai riyuu nado ato de kimeru mono
嗤(わら)う ひとり 祈れ 導きのままに
Warau hitori inore michibiki no mama ni


気づいた 代償
Kizuita daishou
答えに 隠れた
Kotae ni kakureta
さよなら 愛しき日々
SAYONARA itoshiki hibi
戻れないのは 僕だけでいいから
Modorenai no wa boku dake de ii kara

Ikasama RAIFU GEIMU gankubi soroeta jookaa wa
嗤(わら)う やがて 未来予知は訪れる
Warau yagate mirai yochi otozareru
最後の通達 いやに明瞭で憎らしげ
Saigo no tsuutatsu iya ni meiryou de nikurashi ge
『明日 君は』 『どうがんばちゃっても死にますよ』
"Ashita kimi wa" "dou ganbachatte mo shi ni masu yo


イカサマライフゲイム 雁首(がんくび)揃えたジョーカーは
Ikasama RAIFU GEIMU gankubi soroeta jookaa wa
嗤(わら)う 嗤(わら)え ババ抜きじゃ仕方ない
Warau warae BABA nuki ja shikatanai
おかえり感情 死ぬ程の不安が愛しくて
Okaeri kanjou shinu hodo no fuan ga itoshikute
嗤(わら)う ひとり 祈れ 導きのままに
Warau hitori inore michibiki no mama ni
明日雨は降るかな
Ashita ame wa furu ka na




"It will rain tomorrow afternoon," it says quietly
It's like there's an announcement ringing in my ears, saying "Be careful"
The resolution of a process and the targets of the sudden rain
are not known by anyone, in other words, it's a prediction of the future

"Don't ride the bus tomorrow"
"Because an accident will occur"
Within the optimum warmth, I will live on

In this Life Cheating Game, the Jokers that gather
sneer, as all the possibilities ultimately vanish
The dream I always saw and yearned for is being defiled; dreams are just shams after all
I sneer by myself, as I pray while being guided

"Don't go on a date tomorrow," it says quietly
As it gets dark I try to fight off a chill and draw a card
The resolution of a process and the targets of the sudden rain
know nothing, which is why I chose it

Someone said "That girl is alone."
On her way home, her feet slipped

In this Life Cheating Game, the Jokers that gather
sneer, as all the feelings ultimately vanish
Even so, something like a reason for existing should be decided later
I sneer by myself, as I pray while being guided

I've realized that the price I have to pay
was hidden in the answer
So, farewell days that I loved
Even if the only one who can't go back to them is me, that's fine

In this Life Cheating Game, the Jokers that gather
sneer, as the prediction of the future ultimately comes true
The last order is hateful in its disgusting clarity
"Tomorrow, you..."
"will die no matter how hard you try"

In this Life Cheating Game, the Jokers that gather
sneer, as I can't play Old Maid while smirking
Welcome back, feelings; I love feeling the anxiety that makes you wish you were dead
I sneer by myself, as I pray while being guided
I wonder if it will rain tomorrow
