There’s something weird about this one – during the chorus, 嘘をつき (uso wo tsuki, told a lie) is written, but 嘘つき (usotsuki, liars) is sung. I wanted to incorporate the title in the translation, so I translated it whilst keeping both readings in mind.


歌詞

手当たり次第に掴んだり
手にしたものをすぐにポイしたり
捨てたものをまた欲しくなったり
いつでも焦ってた
自分のルールを作ったり
他人を傷つけては笑ったり
一人じゃ寂し過ぎると泣いたり
とにかく焦ってた

競い合って許し合って出来上がったもの
デコボコなくせに色鮮やか

僕らは嘘をつき そっと目を閉じた
目を開けた時消えてなくなる様に
そしてまた痛くなるまで目を擦った
見えない何かを見ようとして

「見た目がピンクで可愛くて
外はカリカリ中はフワフワで
美味しいから食べなよ」と言われて
食べたら不味かった
素直にそのことを言ったら
「こんなに美味しいのに変な奴」
みんな楽し気に僕を笑った
自分も笑ってた

人はみんな平等って教わったから
気まぐれな世界に擦り切れてく

僕らは嘘をつき すぐ走り出した
後ろ見ながら追いつかれない様に
「次」とか「先」とかまで走り続けた
此処にあるものを見落として

僕らは嘘をつき そっと目を閉じた
目を開けた時消えてなくなる様に
そしてまた痛くなるまで目を擦った
在るはずないもの見ようとして

Translation

I grabbed things at random,
And soon after picking them up, I threw them away…
But I found myself wanting them again.
I was always flustered.
I made my own rules,
I hurt other people and laughed…
But being by myself was too lonely, and I cried.
Anyway, I was flustered.

Something was formed after we competed with and forgave each other.
Though it’s rough, it’s radiant.

We told a lie – we’re liars! I softly shut my eyes,
So that when I opened them, it would vanish…
And I rubbed my eyes until they hurt again,
As if trying to see something that can’t be seen.

“It’s pink and cute,
And it’s rough on the outside, but so soft on the inside.
It’s delicious! Take a bite!” You told me that,
But I ate it, and it was awful.
When I told you what I honestly thought…
“It’s so good, though! What’s wrong with you?”
Everyone laughed at me merrily.
I laughed, too.

Because everyone’s told that we’re all equal,
They’re worn out by this fickle world.

We told a lie – we’re liars! I started running right away
Whilst looking behind me, so I wouldn’t be overtaken.
I kept running, until I reached what came after.
I overlooked everything here…

We told a lie – we’re liars! I softly shut my eyes,
So that when I opened them, it would vanish…
And I rubbed my eyes until they hurt again,
As if trying to see something that shouldn’t exist.
