The chorus explores the tension between 表 (omote, front) and 裏 (ura, back). It isn’t only about front and back, though – it also refers to the face someone puts on in public, and who they really are beneath the surface…


歌詞

隠れたまま終わっているかくれんぼ
鬼ごっこ 逃げもせず
捕まらず 立ちすくむだけ

信じる日々かわされ繰り返して戸惑い
つかれた嘘 刺さって心がもう…

表と言えば裏を返す 歪んだ世界で
生きてゆくには最初からもう裏腹真逆で

幼き日に思ってた 大人なら違うはず
違ってた 間違ってた 間違ってたから

変わる心自分も嫌いだから分かるよ
嫌われても平気さ 平気だから…

裏を選べば表と言う デタラメ世界で
せめて笑顔で捻くれよう 裏腹でもいい

傷ついていい心はもう此処にはないから

表と言えば裏を返す 歪んだ世界で
生きてゆくには最初からもう裏腹真逆で

Romanisation

kakureta mama owatte iru kakurenbo
onigokko nige mo sezu
tsukamarazu tachisukumu dake

shinjiru hibi kawasare kurikaeshite tomadoi
tsukareta uso sasatte kokoro ga mou…

omote to ieba ura wo kaesu yuganda sekai de
ikite yuku ni wa saisho kara mou urahara magyaku de

osanaki hi ni omotteta otona nara chigau hazu
chigatteta machigatteta machigatteta kara

kawaru kokoro jibun mo kirai dakara wakaru yo
kirawarete mo heiki sa heiki dakara…

ura wo erabeba omote to iu detarame sekai de
semete egao de hinekureyou urahara demo ii

kizutsuite ii kokoro wa mou koko ni wa nai kara

omote to ieba ura wo kaesu yuganda sekai de
ikite yuku ni wa saisho kara mou urahara magyaku de

Translation

This game of hide and seek ends while I’m still hiding.
It’s a game of tag, but I don’t run away
and I’m not caught. I just stand still.

The days I believed in keep avoiding me and I lose my bearings.
My heart, pierced with the lies I was told, is now—

You speak about the surface, and they reply about what’s behind. In this twisted world,
Living is, from the very start, something completely back-to-front.

In my childhood days, I thought adults were different.
They were different. They were wrong. They were wrong, so…

My heart changes. I hate it myself, so I know.
I don’t care if I’m hated. I don’t care, so…

You choose something hidden and they call it the surface. In this messed up world,
I’ll rebel with a smile, at least. I don’t care if I’m contrary.

You can hurt me, because I don’t have a heart anymore.

You speak about the surface, and they reply about what’s behind. In this twisted world,
Living is, from the very start, something completely back-to-front.
