Update [17/02/2018]: Minor change to last stanza

The ‘Mass’ in the title could mean any number of things. One possible interpretation is ‘masochism holic.’ Another is ‘mass holic’ (someone who’s addicted to lots of things).

Some areas feel like the speaker is talking to someone else, or even humanity as a whole, but they can also be interpreted as the speaker talking about themselves. In other words, ‘you’ can also refer to ‘I, (acting like you)’.


8点の隅で凍えている ずっと
うすら寒いこの関係性はちょっと 脆く

hachi-ten no sumi de kogoete iru zutto
usura samui kono kankei-sei wa chotto moroku

I’m frozen in an 8-point corner, always.
This chilled relationship is a bit brittle…

裏表のない存在なんてきっと無く
点と点を結んではいないだろう

uraomote no nai sonzai nante kitto naku
ten to ten wo musunde wa inai darou

There’s no such thing as something without two sides.
Perhaps the two points aren’t linked…

どうなったってもういいよ
君がそれでいいのならば
目隠ししたって変わんないよ
逃げているだけ

dou natta tte mou ii yo
kimi ga sore de ii no naraba
mekakushi shita tte kawannai yo
nigete iru dake

I don’t care what happens anymore
if you’re okay with it.
Things won’t change even if I’m blindfolded.
I’m just running away.

見えているように 触れているように
ありのままでいい
顔を変えるそんな人生
つらくはないか

miete iru you ni furete iru you ni
ari no mama de ii
kao wo kaeru sonna jinsei
tsuraku wa nai ka

Things are fine as they are
just as I see them, as I touch them…

Isn’t it tough
living while changing one’s face?

媚びへつらって裏で息巻いて
どれが本当なの
主体性も持ち合わせてないね
なんかがらんどう

kobi hetsuratte ura de ikimaite
dore ga hontou nano
shoutai-sei mo mochiawasetenai ne
nanka garandou

You flatter others, but you rage beneath the surface.
Which is the truth?
You don’t have any individuality.
You’re kind of hollow.

何をもって個とするのか
集団心理に飲まれてんだ
夢はないか 希望はあるのか
どうでもいいなぁ

nani wo motte ko to suru no ka
shuudan shinri ni nomarete nda
yume wa nai ka kibou wa aru no ka
dou demo ii naa

What do I need to become an individual?
I’m swallowed up by mass psychology.
I don’t have dreams? Hopes for the future?
I don’t care…

人の表情 読み取った気で
土足で入って踏み荒らすんだ
悩ましいな
関わることすら自分を死なせる

hito no hyoujou yomitotta ki de
dosoku de haitte fumiarasu nda
nayamashii na
kakawaru koto sura jibun wo shinaseru

Feeling like I’ve read human expressions,
I enter with shoes on and trample all around.
How difficult.
Even dealing with others kills me.

息も絶え絶え
「それでも」と言う

iki mo tae dae
“sore demo” to iu

My breathing is feeble.
“Even so…” I say.

ここに至って まだ

koko ni itatte mada

I’ve arrived here, but still…

見えているように 触れているように
ありのままがいい
顔を変えるそんな人生
疲れちゃったから

miete iru you ni furete iru you ni
ari no mama ga ii
kao wo kaeru sonna jinsei
tsukarechatta kara

Things are fine as they are
just as I see them, as I touch them…
After all, I’ve grown tired
of living while changing my face.

媚びへつらって裏で息巻いて
どれも本当だよ
主体性も持ち合わせてないね
だからがらんどう

kobi hetsuratte ura de ikimaite
dore mo hontou dayo
shoutai-sei mo mochiawasetenai ne
dakara garandou

You flatter others, but you rage beneath the surface.
Both are the truth.
You don’t have any individuality
so you’re hollow.

    This was always my least favorite track from the album but knowing the lyrics really put it into context in a way I didn’t expect, I definitely feel it’s introspective. Thank you for translating this.
