The summer grass by the tracks happily drank up the rain, 6 P.M. of bitter orange
My heel fell in my worn out shoes
to the people I’ve met and separated with on this journey, thank you
I, who still doesn’t know what love or tomorrow is…

Aren’t the things that don’t change beautiful?
Yet things that are beautiful will change
Your hand, like a butterfly
Was fluttering away from mine

Because mine wasn’t a flower with sweet nectar

In a bird cage hung in the sky, many inconveniences are crying out
Soon everyone will hold in the pocket of the earth, open their eyes, and inside of tranquility,
Say “thank you”, and thus “goodbye”,
To the 0 that their memories face

I’m not sure if I could find the things that don’t change today if I looked
But if a hundred years pass, we who are alive now would forget even who we lived with

Even if we were temporarily born again with each other, and we met
We would still not remember

Things that don’t change really are beautiful, aren’t they?
But beautiful things will change
Honest feelings, words that are interrupted
It seems that we aren’t good at living
When our journey ends, all of our memories will be forgotten; it’s one of life’s rules
But I want to be allowed for one day, or even 10 seconds
To become the wind that dries your tears

That’s what I want; I think there should be a reason for now – for today

I want to remember you

I wonder what darkness you’ve already walked through
Make the passion that is sitting down stand up, over and over
Below the purple sky, a hundred year old tree stands
You’re also lonely*
How many people have traveled this way before me?

“I want to be a bit better than I was yesterday,” you struggle
If the hand that holds yours is ever gone, embrace loneliness and walk on bravely alone, walk on…

In order to be kind, should weakness be a blessing?
In order to not let my weaknesses be seen, I patch up strength
My truth is, and the middle of me is something forgotten from the far off “past”
If it was now, would I be the same as that time?

If you hold a cowardly sword, then embrace kindness like cotton
In an overly wide pardon,** you cried as you raised your voice
Yes, there are footsteps of the hundred year old tree here

Back to the start…

It’s never a brilliant thing, and people that see it never have envy
While covered in an idea like mud
“I want to be a bit better than I was yesterday,” you struggle
If the hand that holds yours is ever gone,
You have to desire love, and put loneliness in your voice

*the word used is “sabishikarou.” I’ve never seen the -karou suffix used before and
google gives me nothing on it so this sentence is probably translated wrong.
**I’d rather use “forgivement,” but that’s not a word.

I didn’t really like this album on first listen but I’m starting to like it a bit more

songs i like at the moment:
hyakunen no ki
mayonaka no orchestra
carpe diem
milky blues
let loose
gravity 0

songs i sort of like:
saigo made
memento mori (the song is all over the place, and I really don’t like the drums in the chorus, but the instrumental is good)
ehagaki no haru
kaze ni fukarete

songs I don’t like that much:
plumeria (the chorus just annoys me at this point)
ginga tetsudou no yoru

they should have left saigo made, plumeria, or kaze ni fukarete off the album and put on nagasugita yoru ni, poketto no naka no uchuu, or nagarebochi no uta instead

I’ve also noticed that Futoshi has been using vibrato now. it started a tiny bit in sora ni chikai machi and has been getting more noticable ever since. also he uses falsetto in carpe diem for i think the first time

edit: fixed a word I misread

You’re an 8 year old boy
When you can go somewhere, where do you want to go?
If you asked me, I wouldn’t know
Returning to when I was 8, I remember sleeping on my dad’s wide back
I wanted to be a pilot
Making sure nobody was there on the playground after school
Practicing pulling myself up*, the utility poles watching over me
When I wrapped myself around it, I felt like I could
The adults thought about giving up

Now the things I doubt is more than the things I believe
But still, my heart lives in my dreams

I’ve put everything on the line today for the sake of this one day
There were people who tilted their shoulders
But it’s not about whether it will come true or not
This is my way of life
I want to stretch out my chest pursuing my dreams

You’re an 8 year old boy; you are proof life continues to be sketched out
In the future, you will meet with a word called money**
It’s not about having a mansion, or a large plot of land
But what you want to have when in need of an operation

Yes, when your parents say what their pride is
They’ll probably say it’s that their child is living well
Don’t forget, on the days you were too scared to sleep
You weren’t alone

There’s no reason for what they did
But just like this, whether you have a form yet or not, sing***

Even if it comes undone, it’s okay to fix it in the end
I’ve seen a dream so many times
So it’s not whether it reaches or not
This is my way of life
I understand; getting hurt when you stand up is above aknowledgement

Yes, you’re an 8 year old boy
Wouldn’t it be good to become friends?

I’ve put everything on the line today for the sake of this one day
There were people who tilted their shoulders
But it’s not about whether it will come true or not
This is my way of life
I want to stretch out my chest pursuing my dreams

** not exactly money, but the same idea
*** this is probably wrong. it’s been years since i started translating and i still have no idea what
kurai actually means

I actually started this one when the single came out, but I completely forgot about it until today. lol
