日本語

足りないもの探して バックパッ力ー
かっとなっては やっちまった

急展開に期待しなくたって
きっと君は来ないってないってば

“ビビディバビデブ一”
おまじないみたいなもんさ
帰りを今も待ち望んでは

その感動はまた走り去った
これじゃないと あれじゃないと 焦りだけが募るようだ
隣に握りしめる手が欲しかった
温もりを知らぬまま

心まで貧しくなって
グレイの海を彷徨った
美は満ち溢れているんだ
見過ごすな

夜が明ける前に酔いを醒まして
時間がないんだ君には
盲目でいたいの 退屈な今日を
超えていきたいんだきっと

声が届くまで想いをぶつけて
ふらふらになってしまうまで
僕らにそれを忘れることを許さないから
考えることすらやめてしまいな

真夜中踊りだすマッドハッ夕ー
あっというまに 経っちまった

空想上に期待したくなって
きっと君はこないってないってば

現実との狭間で泣いて
腹を裂かれるこの思いで
飲み干した言葉の棘が刺さる

その滑稽さだけが残った
お気に入りの 力卜ラリーは 至福だけを運ぶようだ
テ一ブルをみんなで囲みたかったんだ
ナイフを突き立てては

君の喉仏を裂いて
指先を湿らせたんだ
フォークの使い方なんて
誰にも教わらなかった

真理を見ようとしないで
命の重さを量った
揺らめく篝火の中
何をみた

夜が明ける前に酔いを醒まして
時間がないんだ君には
盲目でいたいの 退屈な今日を
超えていきたいんだきっと

声が届くまで想いをぶつけて
ふらふらになってしまうまで
僕らにそれを忘れることを許さないから
考えることすらやめてしまいな

僕が食ベる前に僕を見つけて

Translation

I’m a backpacker, searching for something I’m missing.
I did it on an impulse.

Even without hoping for a sudden development,
it’s not like you won’t come or anything.

“Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo”
It’s just like a magic spell.
I’m still waiting for you to come home.

That passion ran away once again.
Not this, not that… only impatience seems to grow stronger.
I wanted someone’s hand to hold.
All the while, I didn’t notice that warmth.

Poverty reached even my heart
and I wandered in a grey sea.
Beauty overflows around you—
Don’t overlook it.

Sober up before dawn
because you’ve got no time.
I want to be blind to it all, and I want
to pass through this boring day.

We vent our feelings until they’re heard
and until we get dizzy.
We’re not allowed to forget them
so we’ll end up giving up on even thinking.

The Mad Hatter started dancing at midnight.
In the blink of an eye, the time passed.

Even if I don’t pin my hopes on a daydream,
it’s not like you won’t come or anything.

I cry in the threshold between here and reality.
My stomach feels like it’s being torn apart by memories
and the thorns of the words I drank pierce me.

Only the comedy of it all remained.
It looks like my favourite cutlery only carried bliss.
I wanted to gather round the table with everyone.
I thrust in my knife.

I cut open your Adam’s apple
and moistened my fingertips.
It’s not like anyone ever taught me
how to use a fork.

Without trying to see the truth,
I just measured the weight of life.
In the flickering bonfire
what did I see?

Sober up before dawn
because you’ve got no time.
I want to be blind to it all, and I want
to pass through this boring day.

We vent our feelings until they’re heard
and until we get dizzy.
We’re not allowed to forget them
so we’ll end up giving up on even thinking.

Find me before I finish eating.
