This track appears to be about one person’s struggles in society’s rat race, but of course there are other possibilities out there.

I really love the creative use of v flower in this song! They’re definitely my favourite vocaloid.


よーいドンで   今日始まった
しょうもない競争は
どうやったって   ねぇ
次は僕だ もう行かなくちゃ
まって
準備もまだしちゃいないやって
ねぇ
時間だってさ

yoii don de kyou hajimatta
shou mo nai kyousou wa
dou yatta tte nee
tsugi wa boku da mou ikanakucha
matte
junbi mo mada shichai nai ya tte
nee
jikan da tte sa

Yeah! Today started with a bang.
No matter what, you’ve gotta take part in
that stupid competition.
I’m next. I’ve gotta go.
Hold on,
I’m not ready yet.
C’mon,
it’s time!

とうに今日はもう始まった
最初の一歩を間違っただけ
そういや昨日はどうなった
通れない道路はどれだった
ねぇ
メーデーご来場
興味ない
だって興がない
今日のお前に興味ないなんて
しょうがない
だってそうじゃない
なんの思考も生じない
だったらいいじゃない
からかわれようもない
相対する
自愛の苦労も生じない
やっぱりそうじゃない
初めからの愛がないなんて

tou ni kyou wa mou hajimatta
saisho no ippo o machigatta dake
sou iya kinou wa dou natta
toorenai douro wa dore datta
nee
meedee go raijou
kyoumi nai
datte kyou ga nai
kyou no omae ni kyoumi nai nante
shouganai
datte sou ja nai
nan no shikou mo shoujinai
dattara ii ja nai
karakaware you mo nai
aitai suru
jiai no kurou mo shoujinai
yappari sou ja nai
hajime kara no ai ga nai nante

Today started long ago,
I just messed up the first step.
That reminds me, how’d yesterday turn out?
Which path couldn’t I go down?
C’mon…
Attend the mayday—
I don’t care.
In the end, I don’t care.
I don’t care about you as you are today
and there’s nothing I can do about it.
That’s not it after all…
Nothing comes to mind.
In that case, it’s fine, right?
I can’t help but be mocked.
We face each other
and it doesn’t yield self-love’s hardships.
That’s definitely not it.
Love, present from the start, doesn’t exist.

こうやって 容赦ない今日が
存在を変えたいと
唸った
僕を捉えて笑う
どうやって
迷路を進むんだ
正解に埋もれた感情
握りしめてもう退場
凡人  無用
散弾で纏まとめて
淡々と終了

kou yatte youshanai kyou ga
sonzai o kaetai to
unatta
boku o toraete warau
dou yatte
meiro o susumunda
seikai ni umoreta kanjou
nigirishimete mou taijou
bonjin muyou
sandan de matomete
tantan to shuuryou

And so, I moaned about wanting
to change
and another merciless day
caught me and laughed.
How
do I go through this maze?
I grasp at feelings buried in the right answer
and make my exit.
Average people are useless.
Finish it all with a shot
and end things indifferently.

遠い今日はもう味わった
こっちの方向を選んだ人が正せいでもまって
なんか   あー違うな
思ってた正解とは違うな
どうして?
はい、これで終了。

tooi kyou wa mou ajiwatta
kocchi no houkou o eranda hito ga tadasei demo matte
nanka aa chigau na
omotteta seikai to wa chigau na
doushite?
hai, kore de shuuryou.

I’ve already had a taste of distant today.
The one who chose my course corrects themselves, but wait!
Um… Ah, it’s all wrong.
It’s different to what I thought was right.
Why?
Alright, it’s all over now.

こっちおいでと手招く亡者達
そっちはダメと論さとす指導者達
どうにかなると笑う志望者たち
郷に従えと
生来に恵まれた
底知れなく痴鈍な勝者達
性根のねじ曲がった
恒常的意固地の走者達
協調性に翻弄され
朦朧とする子供達
「まあ僕には関係ないな。
何一つとして関係はないが。」

kocchi oide to temaneku moujatachi
socchi wa dame to satosu shidoushatachi
dou ni ka naru to warau shiboushatachi
gou ni shitagae to
seirai ni megumareta
sokoshire naku chidonna shoushatachi
shoune no neji magatta
koujouteki ikoji no soushatachi
kyouchousei ni honrousare
mourou to suru kodomodachi
“maa boku ni wa kankei nai na.
nanihitotsu to shite kankei wa nai ga.”

The dead beckon to me.
The leaders warn me that this way is no good.
The candidates laugh that things will end up how they end up.
They say “follow the law of the land.”
Naturally blessed,
the victors are immeasurably dull.
With a twist in their nature,
The runners are constantly stubborn.
Making sport of cooperation,
the dim children say:
“Well, it’s not like I’m involved.
I’m not involved at all…”

妙じゃない?
どっちも通れない
「逃げる」
大体基本はそうじゃない
だって僕じゃない
決めたのは僕じゃないんだって

myou ja nai?
docchi mo toorenai
“nigeru”
daitai kihon wa sou ja nai
datte boku ja nai
kimeta no wa boku ja nain datte

Isn’t it strange?
I can’t go by either path.
“Run.”
That’s not what the general basis is.
After all, it’s not me—
I’m not the one who decided it.

こうやって
今日も平穏が
将来に捉えられた
僕の横へ並んで笑う
どうやって
ロープを解くんだ
体裁に踏まれた
愛情を
拾って   繋いで

kou yatte
kyou mo heion ga
shourai ni toraerareta
boku no yoko e narande warau
dou yatte
roopu o hodokunda
teisai ni fumareta
aijou o
hirotte tsunaide

And so,
tranquillity laughs again today
alongside me, a person captured
by the future.
How
do I untie this rope?
I pick up my love, trodden on
by lip service
and tie it together.

こうやって
今日が終わって
明日を待って
次の明日を背負ってを
ただ繰り返していく
どうやって
レースを抜けるんだ
生涯に積まれた残業
くぐり抜けて
もう退場

kou yatte
kyou ga owatte
asu o matte
tsugi no asu o seotte o
tada kurikaeshite iku
dou yatte
reesu o nukeru nda
shougai ni tsumareta zangyou
kuguri nukete
mou taijou

And so,
today ends.
Waiting for tomorrow
and being burdened with the day after,
I just go through things over and over.
How
do I escape from the race?
I struggle through
a lifetime’s worth of overtime.
I’m gonna leave!

賢人
無能
天才を纏めて
変人
奇人
凡人も加えて
全員無用
散弾で纏めて
簡単に終了

kenjin
munou
tensai o matomete
henjin
kijin
bonjin mo kuwaete
zen’in muyou
sandan de matomete
kantan ni shuuryou

Geniuses,
incompetent people
and prodigies—put them all together.
Weirdos,
freaks
and average people—include them, too.
They’re all useless!
Finish it all with a shot
and end things easily.
