It was challenging to interpret where the phrases end in the choruses. In particular, the key question was whether 嘘をもう 吐いて 吐いて is linked to the previous sentence, or whether it’s something completely separate. ような appearing at the end of the previous line made me decide to combine the two lines.

Some text is written in the video separate to what’s sung. I’ve added that at the end of this post.


歌詞

死にたさだけじゃ誰も
慰めちゃくれない 癒えない

あぁ 真面目に生きて
得したことなんて精々
頭の腐った大人に
群がられたことくらい

「はいわかったわかったうるさい」
僕の初恋は玉砕
初めて君に向けられた声
「あれもこれもいらない」
他人の気持ちなんて知らない
いつだって自分が一番ね

笑って泣いて どいつもこいつも
腹ん中は真っ黒
平気で人を殺すような
嘘をもう 吐いて吐いて吐いて

騒いで湧いて どいつもこいつも
頭ん中は真っ白
平気で自分捨てるような
嘘をもう 吐いて 吐いて

皮肉さだけじゃ誰も
聞き耳立てやしない

こうはなるまいと
どこか線引きしただけ
そのくせ同じような
笑い声で生きている

「もうどうでもこうでもいいよ」
全部何も意味はないよ
いつかの本音を溶かしてゆく

「それはそれはすごいね」
世辞の濃度は今日も濃いめ
あっという間に脳がバカになる

暴いて飽いて どいつもこいつも
面の下は真っ青
自分だけを必死に守る
嘘をもう 吐いて吐いて吐いて

繋いで裂いてどいつもこいつも
足元は真っ暗
気づけば何も残らない
嘘をまた 吐いて 吐いて

あぁ君と一緒で独りぼっちだな
捨てられた子猫 頬寄せた
人はみな自分勝手で嘘つきなんだ
君はきっと何も悪くないよ
蝉の声がひどくうるさい
夏だった

いつからか心の声が
ノイズにまみれて
あの頃の僕が隅で埋まって
泣いて泣いて泣いて

どうせあのままで良くて
別にそれで良くて
僕は一体全体何のために
誰と笑ってんだっけ

どいつもこいつも
腹ん中は真っ黒
平気で人を殺すような
嘘をもう 吐いて吐いて吐いて

黙ってたって あいつもそいつも
いつか殺されたんだ
だから今日も自分を守る
嘘でまた 泣いて 泣いて

Translation

With just a desire for death,
Nobody will comfort me. I won’t recover.

Ah… I lived an honest life
but at most, all I gained from it
was being swarmed by grown-ups
with rotten brains.

“Yep. I get it. I get it. How annoying…”
My first love suffered an honourable defeat.
It was the first time I had ever spoken to you.
“I don’t need this or that.”
You knew nothing about how people feel.
You were always number one.

Laughing, crying. Each and every person
is pitch black in the pits of their stomachs.
They coolly spit out lies that could kill people.
They just spit them right out!

Panicking, with emotions raging. Each and every person
is completely white inside their heads.
They coolly spit out lies that could cast themselves away.
They just spit them right out!

By just speaking sarcastically,
Nobody will lend an ear to what you have to say.

People laid out lines
telling me how things shouldn’t be.
Even so, I live
with similar laughter.

“I don’t care what happens anymore.”
Everything is meaningless.
My true feelings from long ago melt away.

“Well, well, that’s impressive!”
The compliments are laid on thick again today.
In the blink of an eye, I become an idiot.

Exposing secrets then growing bored. Each and every person
is ghostly pale beneath their masks.
They spit out lies that protect themselves with all their might.
They just spit them right out!

Tying things then tearing them apart. Each and every person
has pitch-black darkness at their feet.
Before they know it, nothing remains.
They spit those lies right out again!

Ah… I guess I’m alone with you.
I brought an abandoned kitten to my cheek.
Humans are all liars for their own selfish ends.
You didn’t do anything wrong at all.
The cries of cicadas were awfully annoying
that summer.

Since who knows when, the voice of my heart
has been engulfed in static.
I, from back then, am crammed into a corner.
I cry, I cry, I cry…

After all, things are fine that way.
I don’t really mind.
What in the world was it all for?
Who was I laughing with?

Each and every person
is pitch black in the pits of their stomachs.
They coolly spit out lies that could kill people.
They just spit them right out!

With mouths sealed shut… That person and that one too
were killed once in the past.
So, telling lies to protect themselves again today,
They cry and cry once more.


Video text

日本語

「落ちた順位、やっと戻ったのね、ほんと心配させないで」
「全く、今は大事な時期なんだぞ、他のことに現を抜かすな」
「もうすぐ夏休みだからって気を抜かないようにしなさいね」
「お前にはお父さんも期待してるんだ、この調子で頑張れよ」

「よっ、暗い顔してどーした?」
「そらくん、消しゴム落ちたよ、はい!」
「何か悩みごととかあったらいつでも言ってくれよ!」
「いつも学年1位で本当にすごいな。皆も見習うように」
「あ、すみません、ノート回収しててーえっと、名前なんでしたっけ」
「なーんかいつも何考えてんのかわかんないよねー」
「ごめーん急用入って!掃除当番、変わってもらってもいい?」
「すまん!今日も宿題、写させて欲しい!いつも助かるよ!」

「物拾ってあげたのにめっちゃ愛想悪くてやばかったー(笑)」
「え?席隣じゃん、うわー運悪いねマジどんまーい」
「あいつちょっと仲良くするだけで全部写させてくれるぜ(笑)」
「毎日勉強ばっかりしててさ、何が楽しくて生きてんだろうな」

「だってこうしないと淘汰されてしまうんだ」
「これでもう笑われないで済むんだからいいじゃん」
「薄っぺらくて下らない奴らの仲間入り」
「これでよかったんだ」

「自分なんて簡単に捨てられた」
「でも今の僕はもっと惨めでもっと醜い」
「居場所なんてどこにもなかった」
「信じられる人なんて誰もいなかった」
「誰か」

Translation

“You finally recovered from your academic slump. Don’t make me worry so much.”
“Seriously. Now’s such an important time, don’t get hooked on other things!”
 “Summer holidays are starting soon, so don’t let your mind wander.”
“Your father has high hopes for you as well, so keep going at this pace!”

“Hey, why the long face?”
“Sora… Here, you dropped your eraser!”
“If anything’s troubling you, just let me know!”
“He’s always top of the class. Remarkable—everyone should learn from him!”
“Oh, sorry, I’m collecting up everyone’s notebooks. Um… what was your name again?”
“I, well, I can never tell what he’s thinking.”
“Sorry, something’s come up! Can you clean up for me today?”
“Sorry! I want you to let me copy your homework again today! Thanks for all your help!”

“I picked up his stuff but he was so cold. How scary, lol!”
“Oh, he sits next to you? How unlucky! Just ignore him.”
“Just get a little close to him and he’ll let you copy all his homework, lol!”
“All he does is study every day. What does he do to have fun?”

“That’s it – if I don’t do this, I’ll be weeded out.”
“They won’t laugh at me if I do this. So it’s fine!”
“I’ll join that group, full of shallow, worthless people.”
“This is for the best.”

“My sense of self was cast away long, long ago.”
“But now I’m even more wretched, even more hideous now.”
“I didn’t have anywhere to belong all along.”
“Nobody was there to believe me.”
“Somebody…”

      1. Ah, that’s right, there are some songs called Chatnoir/black cat. But there is the L/R thing in Japanese. I guess you could ask Luna directly someday if they do reply to tweets/emails but i suppose the title isn’t as important as the lyrics/rest of the song haha. I guess if i was a composer, i’d try to keep it relevant but otherwise I’d just pick words i like whether they’re ‘connected’ to the song or not XD
