Looking outside in boredom, your bad days were reflected in mine
If I calm my mind by saying “let’s go on a walk”, it’s as if a great joy is hurrying me along

Like a worn out film, my memories play back broken and disconnected

On a swing, I tried to get closer to the sky
Because beyond that spring, there is a shining lawn

The current, time, water, clouds – these can’t be stopped
The “beginning” is the one thing that doesn’t seem to end
The dreams from bygone days, every day from that time
The sunday from that time where everyone would nap

When once again a kiss was given with a wet nose – even now I remember

On a swing, I tried to get closer to the sky
Beyond that spring, there is a shining lawn
Dogs that look happy run around in circles
Even if most of this world is a lie, that is something I can believe in

I don’t think I’ll be translating Tsubomi. Not only does the song completely bore me and feel like a rip-off of Niji, but the lyrics look similarly bland from what I’ve seen.

Another Original Song

I know nobody has been following this site for like 6 months, but I’ll share this anyway. I wrote it in a few hours.

Isshun no Chiri Remix

Yeah, there’s gonna be a remix of it with the title “一瞬の塵 -kawasaki electro academy mix- remixed by Takeshi Ueda(AA=)+Kei Kusama” The Japanese really are great at naming songs…

I’m not particularly excited about that or the new single at all. Isshun no Chiri probably shouldn’t have an electronic remix to it (doubt it will be done very well), and Tsubomi sounds pretty generic to me.

Once the earth was square, now it’s round
I wonder if next it will become a triangle
Once people were children of the sea, now they’re children of god
I wonder who’s “children” we will become next

But anyone is fine – anything is fine
It’s still early for tomorrow, so I will sleep

This soul elected from millions of tadpoles
I was happy for such a miracle
From this jumbo jumbo lottery ticket, a baby gave its first cry
I suppose it was happy with that triumphant pose, crying and shouting

But following a new way of thinking, if I stop looking for fault in life
I guess this tall tale wouldn’t be told
If that was a jumbo jumbo “play again,” I guess my luck in getting the prize must be terrible

I wonder if it’s around here or if it’s not
But there’s no reason to know, and I don’t want to know

The voice from that time – my first cry,
Was it out of happiness? Or was it out of sadness?
I still wonder…

Let me hear that voice – the voice from that time
Try to remember them – the thoughts from that time

Surely they can be understood – anything can be understood
Happy things, and sad things too

New Song

I’ve recently uploaded a new song I’ve written and recorded. Been working on it for a few months, so hopefully it turned out alright, even though I’m not a very good singer.

It’s useless to try and stand still, living finitely on this planet
Because this earth carries me with it at such a great speed

If you try to stand still, you’re still going 1400km/h
You can’t run against the earth’s rotation

“You can’t stand still to avoid standing still”
I don’t understand why
I stand still because I’m helpless either way; I guess it doesn’t matter what I do

I, trying not to lose hope, now face a future where I don’t know how much I’ll be walking backwards
Because even if I tried again to throw away that thing which I made myself hand over
I’ll give the next future to that hand that has become empty

In the future where I was worried in my place of refuge
I made it in advance, because I knew I’d be helpless
When I accidentally saw myself
I could see myself in my bloodshot eyes

In the corner of my room I hid away in
Even in the bed I wrapped myself in
With all my might I clung to what was near

“Are you okay?” “No, I’m still not”
“well are you okay now?” “You’re quite insistent”
Do you not know how to give up?
What do you call a plan like yours?

How much will I soon discover in the future if I try to walk covering my head? How far will I be taken?
Even If I get angry again at getting overtaken, I’ll never try to pass again
Like the moon floating in the night

I won’t go in front or behind for you
I’ll just have to move in a small box
Because there’s nothing further than in front or behind*

“I will never be an influence on anyone”
“Give up already, it’s been so long”
“But in the end, please clear your ears”

From somewhere, I hear a voice
“If it’s a future where you are going to throw everything away
Please give it to me, I’ll make you use it carefully”

And I finally realized, softly, you strongly held me
Because when I was born, it was something I took

Far away, I shout to you
“From now on, wait before you go”
You, who has tears floating in your eyes
Was the thing in my future

This is actually one of my favourite songs. Really nice intro, melody, instrumentals, solo, lyrics

*I’m not sure at all about this section. I can’t figure out where to put the pronouns, so it’s hard to determine what’s actually being said.
But other than that, I’m pretty sure about the rest of the song.
