There’s some interesting wordplay in this song. For example, the first line contains the word ナンセンス (nonsense), which is followed later in the song by ハイセンス (haisensu – refined), and ライセンス (license). This sort of stuff doesn’t translate well into English, as you can see with the second word: we don’t really call things ‘high sense.’


ナンセンスな毎日を
卑しめて慰めた
切り取って貼り付ける
繰り返しループする生活

nansensu na mainichi o
iyashimete nagusameta
kiritotte haritsukeru
kurikaeshi ruupu suru seikatsu

I despised each day, which was so nonsensical,
And I consoled myself.
Cut and paste—
My life was continuously looping.

ワンテイクに込められた
意味なんてなかったよ
切り裂いて縫い合わせる
繰り返しループする生活

wan teiku ni komerareta
imi nante nakatta yo
kirisaite nuiawaseru
kurikaeshi ruupu suru seikatsu

It was all packed into one take
and it meant nothing at all.
Tear it up and stitch it back together—
My life was continuously looping.

憎悪に善がっては
傷を増やすばかり
あれもこれも駄目だな
最低な気分でパーティーパーティー

zouo ni yogatte wa
kizu o fuyasu bakari
are mo kore mo dame da na
saitei na kibun de paatii paatii

Satisfying myself with hatred
only makes me more wounded.
Everything’s no good.
In the worst spirits, party! Party!

君に善がっては
引かれてばかり
あれもこれも欲しいな
最高な気分でパーティーパーティー

kimi ni yogatte wa
hikarete bakari
are mo kore mo hoshii na
saikou na kibun de paatii paatii

Satisfying myself with you
only makes me more attracted to you.
I want everything!
In the best spirits, party! Party!

鏡に映った君は誰
不適な笑み浮かべて
毒に侵された襤褸人形
今にも壊れそうだ

kagami ni utsutta kimi wa dare
futeki na emi ukabete
doku ni okasareta boro ningyou
ima ni mo kowaresou da

Who are you, reflected there in the mirror?
An inappropriate smile appears on your face.
You’re a rag doll afflicted by poison.
Looks like you’ll break at any moment…

暗闇に紛れてララバイ
暗闇を越えてサラバイ
希望を求めて足掻く
いつかきっと

kurayami ni magirete rarabai
kurayami o koete sarabai
kibou o motomete agaku
itsuka kitto

A lullaby slips into the darkness.
A goodbye passes through the darkness.
I struggle around, seeking hope.
Someday, for sure

暗闇に紛れてララバイ
暗闇を越えてサラバイ
希望を求めて足掻く
アイアイアイシテル

kurayami ni magirete rarabai
kurayami o koete sarabai
kibou o motomete agaku
ai ai aishiteru

A lullaby slips into the darkness.
A goodbye passes through the darkness.
I struggle around, seeking hope.
I, I, I love you!

ハイセンスな毎日を
求めて我に返っては
僕が僕のことを
抱きしめて離さないんだ

haisensu na mainichi o
motomete ware ni kaette wa
boku ga boku no koto o
dakishimete hanasanai nda

I sought refined days
and came to my senses.
Then, I embraced myself.
We won’t be parted.

ライセンスに囚われた
愚かな大人達は
コソコソ夜な夜なに

raisensu ni torawareta
oroka na otonatachi wa
koso koso yonayona ni

I was captured by a license.
The foolish adults
act secretly, each and every night.

鏡に映った君は誰
不適な笑み浮かべて
毒に侵された襤褸人形
今にも壊れそうだ

kagami ni utsutta kimi wa dare
futekina emi ukabete
doku ni okasareta boro ningyou
ima ni mo kowaresou da

Who are you, reflected there in the mirror?
An inappropriate smile appears on your face.
You’re a rag doll afflicted by poison.
Looks like you’ll break at any moment…

暗闇に紛れてララバイ
暗闇を越えてサラバイ
希望を求めて足掻く
いつかきっと

kurayami ni magirete rarabai
kurayami o koete sarabai
kibou o motomete agaku
itsuka kitto

A lullaby slips into the darkness.
A goodbye passes through the darkness.
I struggle around, seeking hope.
Someday, for sure…

暗闇に紛れてララバイ
暗闇を越えてサラバイ
希望を求めて足掻く
アイアイアイシテル

kurayami ni magirete rarabai
kurayami o koete sarabai
kibou o motomete agaku
ai ai aishiteru

A lullaby slips into the darkness.
A goodbye passes through the darkness.
I struggle around, seeking hope.
I, I, I love you!
