歌詞

キラキラ星に 宿った正義のもと
ひらひらはためかせて闇へ誘うの
キラキラ光る 真実はどこへ向かうの
ひらひらはためかせて闇へ誘うの

DIVE TO RED
コロンブスのコンパスの指す先
もう DIVE TO BLUE
パイプ咥えたガンジーが核兵器で戦線に発つ夜

逃げられないこの世は泣き笑いの地獄だ
避けられない狂気は私か?君か? CRAZY YOU

縞々色に 宿った勇気のもと
ひらひらはためかせて光誘うの
縞々模様 悪意と心裏腹に
ひらひらはためかせて光誘うの

DIVE TO RED
リンカーンの采配の指す先
もう DIVE TO BLUE
ラッセンの描いた海埋め立て軍事島を築く夜

逃げられないこの世は泣き笑いの地獄だ
避けられない狂気は私か?君か? CRAZY ME

DIVE TO RED
コロンブスのコンパスの指す先
もう DIVE TO BLUE
パイプ咥えたガンジーが核兵器で戦線に発つ夜

逃げられないこの世は泣き笑いの地獄だ
避けられない狂気は私か?君か? CRAZY YOU

Translation

In the name of the justice that rests in this shining star,
I wave my flag and invite you into the darkness.
Where did shining truth go?
I wave my flag and invite you into the darkness.

Dive to red.
I head to where Columbus’ compass points.
Now, dive to blue.
On this night, pipe-smoking Gandhi fires nuclear weapons on the front lines. (1)

This inescapable world is a hell where you smile while crying.
Is this unavoidable madness me? Or is it you? Crazy you.

In the name of the courage that rests in these stripes,
I wave my flag and invite the light.
These stripes are contrary to malice and my heart.
I wave my flag and invite the light.

Dive to red.
I head to where Lincoln’s baton points.
Now, dive to blue.
On this night, we build a military island, reclaiming the sea Lassen painted. (2)

This inescapable world is a hell where you smile while crying.
Is this unavoidable madness me? Or is it you? Crazy me.

Dive to red.
I head to where Columbus’ compass points.
Now, dive to blue.
On this night, pipe-smoking Gandhi fires nuclear weapons on the front lines.

This inescapable world is a hell where you smile while crying.
Is this unavoidable madness me? Or is it you? Crazy you.
