There may be some significance behind the number 2049, but unfortunately I couldn’t work it out…


日本語

喚声は 終わらない 薬剤の記者会見で
ベレッタ 泣き出し 陬遠(すうえん)に
権勢は 続かない 政令の強制労働
右に 2049 落下せよ

再勘定 浮世と
ブリキの玩具(おもちゃ)に 偽者の歌
鉦(かね)を 敲け(たたけ)
冷戦時 時計は 投げ捨てて
パレードを

罪を棄て楽園を目指せ
(投げ捨てろ 投げ捨てろ)
機械仕掛け牢獄に
(捕まえろ 捕まえろ)
嘘吐きの航路その先に
たゆとう逃げた夢
錆びる星 曇り空
悼む(いたむ)廃墟 月落ちる
此処は何も無い

歓声は 上がらない 天秤の演奏会で
イーグル 棋峙(きじ)する 戦線に
勇健も 恙無い 不意打ちと泡銭(あぶくぜ)に
左に 2049 点火せよ

再編成 裏口
一人残されて 踊る骨
欺く 指揮は執れない
ゆりかごの外
夕闇のなか

戦艦朽ちて幽霊と壇上
誂えた言葉は遊具の灯に降ろす
茉莉花(まつりか) 蜉蝣(かげろう) 石楠花(しゃくなげ)と飾り
今日は最後に「     」

罰を棄て空を彷徨う
(逃がさない 逃がさない)
機械仕掛け永遠に
(終わらない 終わらない)
亡骸の望む その先に
たゆとう 過去の船
淀む風 軋む音
合わせ鏡 凪がれる歌は
何処へ消えゆく

Translation

The shouting doesn’t stop at the medical press conference.
The Beretta bursts into noise somewhere far away from the city.
Their influence won’t continue. This is slave labour by government order.
To the right, 2049 fall.

I sing a false song
to the recalculated floating world and the tin toy.
Strike the gong!
It’s the Cold War. Throw away your clocks
and join the parade.

Cast away your crime and aim for paradise
(Throw it away, throw it away!)
inside this mechanical prison.
(Seize them, seize them!)
At the end of the liars’ route
was a wavering dream in which I escaped.
The planet is rusty and the weather cloudy.
At the grieving ruins, the moon sinks.
There’s nothing here.

The crowd doesn’t cheer at the concert of scales.
Eagle. The heroes face each other on the front.
With health and safety, facing surprise attacks and easy money,
set fire to 2049 at the left!

Reshuffle. Back door.
Someone is left behind and the bones dance.
Deceived, I can’t take command
outside the cradle
in the twilight.

The battleship rots with spirits atop an altar.
The words of order fall upon the flames of playthings.
Jasmine, mayflies, rhododendron and decorations.
Today, finally, “     .”

I abandon my punishment and roam about the sky
(I won’t let you go, I won’t let you go.)
during a mechanical eternity.
(It won’t end, it won’t end.)
Beyond what the corpse sees
the boat of the past drifts.
The wind is stagnant, and a creaking sound echoes.
A song flowing through the calm of opposite mirrors
vanishes somewhere.
