歌詞

私はただ焦りながら
真っ白な教科書を開く
ふらり、バスにゆられながら
酔い止めの眠気と戦う

「ところでこのバスは、その、何処へ行くの?」
乗客の一人が聞く
「まあまあ、慌てなさるな これからまだ長い旅が続くのさ」

…あー  

誰だ?うるさいな…
泣いている声が聞こえる
往く人、留まる人
君もほら、行かなくちゃ

果てなき涙にまみれた
澄み切った前足で
何を掴むのかと何度も問いかけたとこで
新しい旅立ちが私を待っている ほら。

誰か、居るのか?
震えてる息が聞こえる
…ひどく曖昧だ
もう僕も、行かなくちゃ

ほら さあ!

僕らはみな生きてたから
愛しあい 殺し合い
笑いあえるんだよ、と
涙を拭うフリをして
歩き出す 少しづ
世界の何処かで

Romanisation

Watashi wa tada aseri nagara
Masshiro na kyoukasho o hiraku
Furari, basu ni yurare nagara
Yoidome no nemuke to tatakau

“Tokoro de kono basu wa, sono, doko e iku no?”
Joukyaku no hitori ga kiku
“Maa maa, awate nasaru na kore kara mada nagai tabi ga tsuzuku no sa”

…Aa      

Dare da? Urusai na…
Naite iru koe ga kikoeru
Iku hito, todomaru hito
Kimi mo hora, ikanakucha

Hate naki namida ni mamireta
Sumikitta maeashi de
Nani o tsukamu no ka to nando mo toikaketa toko de
Atarashii tabidachi ga watashi o matte iru hora.

Dareka, iru no ka?
Furueteru iki ga kikoeru
…Hidoku aimai da
Mou boku mo, ikanakucha

Hora saa!           

Bokura wa mina ikiteta kara
Aishi ai koroshi ai
Warai aeru nda yo, to
Namida o nuguu furi o shite
Aruki dasu sukoshi zutsu
Sekai no dokoka de
Ima

Translation

I was impatient
and opened up my blank textbook.
I fought against the drowsiness from my travel sickness meds
while being rocked around by the lumbering bus.

“Oh yeah, where exactly is this bus heading?”
asked a passenger.
“Well, no need to rush, there’s still a long way to go.”

…Ah.

Who’s that? How noisy…
I can hear someone crying.
Some go, and some stay.
As for you, come on, get going!

Endless tears stained my cheeks
while I was on steady legs.
Though I’ve asked myself what I should grab onto countless times
a new departure is waiting for me. See?

Is someone there?
I can hear someone’s trembling breaths.
…How unclear.
It’s about time for me to get going too.

All right, come on!

We all lived
so we can love and murder each other
and smile together, too!
I pretend to wipe my tears away
and I start walking, step by step
somewhere in the world
now…
