獏 (baku) refers to the tapir, but it’s also a creature in Japanese mythology that’s similar yet different to the tapir. It’s known for eating nightmares. For more info on the baku, see this site.


最近私の脳内では
狂った少女が笑って
あれをしたい これをしたいなんて
突然 言い出すもんだから故に

saikin watashi no nounai de wa
kurutta shoujo ga waratte
are o shitai kore o shitai nante
totsuzen iidasu mon da kara yueni

Lately, inside my mind
a mad girl has been laughing.
She suddenly says stuff like
“I want to do this, I want to do that,” and so…

少々 困りもんなんです
制御が効かないようです
何処か行ってよ 消えて行ってよ
ねぇ

shoushou komari mon nandesu
seigyo ga kikanai you desu
doko ka itte yo kiete itte yo
nee

I’m a bit stumped.
She seems out of control.
Go away somewhere! Disappear!
C’mon…

私 獏の夢喰いを見た
短命な命だった
防いでも急いても
すでに遅くて
未熟者だった

watashi baku no yume kui o mita
tanmei na inochi datta
fuseide mo seite mo
sude ni osokute
mijukumono datta

I saw a baku eating my dreams.
It was a short life.
Though I defend against it, though I rush it along,
it’s too late.
I was inexperienced.

私 獏の夢喰いを見た
少ない孤独だった
泣いても泣いても
記憶は消えない
そんな夜だった

watashi baku no yume kui o mita
sukunai kodoku datta
naite mo naite mo
kikoku wa kienai
sonna yoru datta

I saw a baku eating my dreams.
I felt scarce isolation.
Though I cry and cry
my memories won’t vanish.
It was that sort of night.

嗚呼

Ah…

最近 私の食卓では
ウザったい喧嘩があって
私じゃない 愛してないなんて
突然 言い出すもんだから故に

saikin watashi no shokutaku de wa
uzattai kenka ga atte
watashi janai aishitenai nante
touzen iidasu mon dakara yueni

Lately, at my dining table
there’s been an annoying brawl
because they suddenly say stuff like
“It wasn’t me!” “I don’t love you!”

そろそろ潮時なんです
私が入れ替わりそうです
涙 一滴 気づかないなんて
ねぇ

sorosoro shiodoki nandesu
watashi ga irekawari sou desu
namida itteki kizukanai nante
nee

It’s high tide soon.
It looks like I’ll be switched out.
As if I won’t notice that teardrop.
C’mon!

私 獏の夢喰いを見た
短命な命だった
防いでも急いても
すでに遅くて

watashi baku no yume kui o mita
tanmei na inochi datta
fuseide mo seite mo
sude ni osokute

Though I defend against it, though I rush it along,
it’s too late.
