Lyrics & Translation






Kanji

曇天の大都市に 耳鳴りがぱちり
願ったり 縋すがった覚えなど 無いけど
大事変混沌の立役者 演者
記憶とさ 傍はた迷惑の 継承

汚れてしまった世界で
止まない雨に 嗤わらったり
灰に変わった世界で 確か
有限を夢見たんだ

最終走者アンカーは走る 結末へと
終わりにしようか ここらでさ
たった一度のイレギュラー
少年は完全を拒んだ

奇跡も何も 無い世界で
ブラウン管の夢を 見れたなら
なんて素敵な事でしょう
神は 今 標的と為なる

転生神童の解答や 如何いかに
今更 平凡に恋焦がれたり
交差点喧噪けんそうに 少年がぽつり
何卒なにとぞ 後は宜よろしくと

二人ぼっちの世界で
最後に手にした林檎は
たいそう調味料の味がして
愛しく思えたんだ

最終走者アンカーは走る 結末へと
主役の残骸ざんがいを 踏みつけて
地球最後のチャンスは
存外無責任に託された

奇跡も何も 無い世界で
おとぎ話だって 嗤わらえたら
なんて素敵な事でしょう
神は 今 標的と為る

泥沼掻かいて網にかかって
祭り上げんだ 天才偶像
どの道寒い延命処置で
イキがれなんてさ もう嫌だ

カミサマずっと一人でさ
出来っこ無い理想ゆめを追いかけて
馬鹿な 僕ら にゃそもそも
飴は いらないんだ

最終走者アンカーは走る 結末へと
終わりにしようか ここらでさ
夢を見るため僕らは
夢の無い世界を望んだ

奇跡の匣はこが 無い世界で
それなりに生きて 死ねたなら
なんて素敵な事でしょう
神は最終章の今 標的と 偽なる…

In this cloudy metropolis the buzzing in my ears clicks away.
There aren't any memories that I really wish for or hold on to.
The leading actors of this great disastrous chaos, the presenters.
With an inheritance of memories and nearby troubles.

In this filthy world,
I laugh in the endless rain.
In this world turned to ashes,
I certainly dreamed I was finite.

The final runner dashes towards the end.
Shall we finish this, right here?
And yet, only once, did that irregular youth,
refuse perfection.

In this world without miracles, or anything else,
if I were able to dream of a cathode-ray tube,
Then wouldn't it be wonderful?
Right now, god will become my target.

An answer for the reincarnation prodigy and after such a long time,
somehow, yearning for normalcy.
In the hustle and bustle of an intersection, the youth is isolated.
Saying 'please, I'll leave the rest to you.'

In this world where we're alone together,
the final apple I held in my hand,
has a well-seasoned flavor,
it so lovingly seemed to me.

The final runner dashes towards the end.
trampling over the ruins of the leading role.
the earth's final chance.
contrary to expectations, was irresponsibly entrusted to me.

In this world without miracles, or anything else,
if I were able to smile at fairy-tales,
then wouldn't that be wonderful?
Right now, god will become my target.

Trudging through this dire situation, and slipping through the net.
The genius images I set up so highly,
with my, in any case cold, life-prolonging treatment
are so pretentious, it's detestable.

Gods are always alone,
Chasing ideals that will never come.
Idiotic us, from the beginning,
We never needed, that candy.

The final runner dashes towards the end.
Shall we finish it, right here?
For the sake of our dreaming,
we wished for a world without dreams.

In a world without this miracle box,
if i were able to live and die as i am,
then wouldn't that be wonderful?
Right now, God will become the target of my final chapter.[2]
