I think your interpretation of the line でも貴方は、あれ違うみたい? will colour the way you approach the rest of the stanzas it appears in. I see it as a pivot – the rest of the stanza shifts, and it’s now about 貴方 (anata- you). Some of the grammar, though, makes it seem like it’s about ‘me’.

In that sense, this song might be told from the perspective of one who is within the system selling happiness through a pill, and from the perspective of one who is outside the system but joins it as the song progresses.


切望の希望にすがる世界
そりゃないぜなんて言えやしない
でも貴方は、あれ違うみたい?
汚れた目がなんたてったって
とうにどうも救われてる
あり得ない奇跡が起こってる
栄光と希望のビジネスモデル
引っ張っていって未来に

setsubou no kibou ni sugaru sekai
sorya naize nante ieyashinai
demo anata wa, are chigau mitai?
yogoreta me ga nanta tettatte
tou ni doumo sukuwareteru
arienai kiseki ga okotteru
eikou to kibou no bijinesu moderu
hippatte itte mirai ni

In a world that clings to its desired hope,
There’s no way you can say it doesn’t exist.
Still, something seems a bit different for you?
Your polluted eyes seemed to say something.
You were saved long ago, though you tried not to be.
An impossible miracle takes place—
A business model of hope and glory
drags you towards the future.

陳腐な夢と違うのさ
現実逃避とも言えるけど、
どうせすぐに忘れんだよ
焦燥で口だけばかりの症状
ねぇ、面白くないんだよ
もう、尋常な日々は重いんだよ
置いていけ1錠で今

chinpu na yume to chigau no sa
genjitsu touhi to mo ieru kedo,
douse sugu ni wasurenda yo
shousou de kuchi dake bakari no shoujou
nee, omoshirokunai nda yo
mou, jinjouna hibi wa omoi nda yo
oiteike ichi jou de ima

It’s different to a cliched dream
though you could also call it a means of escaping from reality.
Well I’ll forget about it straight away, anyway.
My symptoms: I do nothing but run my mouth out of impatience.
Hey, it’s not funny.
My ordinary days feel so heavy.
Now, leave it all behind with a single pill!

なんもかんも全部売って愛もないの
それでもまだまだ足りないんでしょう
白色や色々の愛の結晶
中毒効果、ご愛敬
服用したなら不眠も解消
値段も優しくお買い得でしょ
楽しくなるってキャッチコピーで
どうだい?

nan mo kan mo zenbu utte ai mo nai no
sore demo madamada tarinai ndeshou
shiroiro ya iroiro no ai no kesshou
chuudoku kouka, goaikyou
fukuyou shita nara fumin mo kaishou
nedan mo yasashiku okaidoku desho
tanoshiku naru tte kyacchi kopii de
dou dai?

Everything is sold, yet there’s no love.
Even so, perhaps there isn’t enough yet.
The crystals of love are white and multicoloured.
They’re poisonous. How amusing.
Take a dose and your sleeplessness will stop as well.
They’re pretty cheap. I guess they’re a bargain.
Their slogan is “Things will be more fun!”
How about it?

そっと包んでおくれよ
救いの処方箋を
錠剤頂戴、頂戴よ
余分に頂戴、飲みたい放題
そっと包んでおくれよ
救いの処方箋を
錠剤頂戴、頂戴よ
幸せを、いっぱい詰め込んで

sotto tsutsunde okure yo
sukui no shohousen o
jouzai choudai, choudai yo
yobun ni choudai, nomitai houdai
sotto tsutsunde okure yo
sukui no shohousen o
jouzai choudai, choudai yo
shiawase o, ippai tsumekonde

Wrap up salvation’s prescription
in secret for me!
Give me pills. Give ‘em to me!
Give me extra, I want to have as many as I want!
Wrap up salvation’s prescription
in secret for me!
Give me pills. Give ‘em to me!
Cram happiness right in!

皆待ちに待っていた、新世界
病む心さえも弾む未来
でも貴方は、あれ違うみたい?
震えた手がなんたてったって
とうにどうも止まらない
あり得ない理性で辞められない
栄光と希望のビジネスモデル
泣きついた

minamachi ni matte ita, shin sekai
yamu kokoro sae mo hazumu mirai
demo anata wa, are chigau mitai?
furueta te ga nanta tettatte
tou ni dou mo tomaranai
arienai risei de yamerarenai
eikou to kibou no bijinesu moderu
nakitsuita

Everyone waited and waited for the new world
in which even their aching hearts would bounce back.
Still, something seems a bit different for you?
Your shaking hands seemed to say something.
No matter how you try, you won’t stop now.
You can’t quit though impossible reasoning.
This is a business model of hope and glory.
You clung to it in tears.

あぁ
陳腐な夢と違うのさ
現実逃避とも言えるけど、
どうせすぐに忘れんだよ
ほっておいてくれ
ねぇ、面白くないんだよ
もう、尋常な日々は重いから
捨て行け1錠で今

aa
chinpu na yume to chigau no sa

douse sugu ni wasurenda yo
hotte oite kure
nee, omoshirokunai nda yo
mou, jinjouna hibi wa omoi kara
sute ike ichi jou de ima

Ah…
It’s different to a cliched dream
though you could also call it a means of escaping from reality.
Well I’ll forget about it straight away, anyway.
Just leave me alone, please!
Hey, it’s not funny.
My ordinary days feel so heavy
so I’ll throw it all away with a single pill now!
