Watch the official video on YouTube!

Warning: This song contains themes of conflict and war.

My original translation of the title was ‘Don’t Worry, Planetary Destruction Happens’, but then I saw the Spotify listing and updated it.

Putting that aside, the flippancy of the lyrics forms a chilling contrast with the visuals in the official video, and it really makes it clear that conflict only leads to tragedy.


歌詞

WARNING: NO PLACE
TO BREATHE ON THIS PLANET…

「ずっと昔の恋人たちは
『月が綺麗だね』と愛を語り合ったらしい」
「…月って何?」
「昔滅びた惑星の空に浮かんでたらしい、…って話」

WARNING: NO PLACE
TO BREATHE ON THIS PLANET

キミが蹴った空き缶が
神様の額に当たった

いたずら好きの妖精が
爆弾を作ってみた
あわてん坊の宇宙人が
それをつい落としちゃった
さみしがり屋の死神が
羨みを作ってみた
しょうじき者の人々は
生真面目に殺し合った

ただの美しい惑星ほしが一つ失われるだけ
それだけ。よくあること

WARNING: NO PLACE
TO BREATHE ON THIS PLANET

カッとなった神様が
この惑星のフォローをリムった

アダムとイブになれたなら
こんなこと二度としない
アダムとイブになれたなら…

けんきゅうしゃ肌の天使が
爆弾を作ってみた
かんしゃく持ちの幽霊が
それをつい落としちゃった
さみしがり屋の死神が
蔑みを薦めてきた
しょうじき者の人々は
律儀にも殺し合った

ただの美しい惑星が一つ失われるだけ
それだけ。よくあること

ただの尊い命が無数に消えていくだけ
それだけ。よくあること

Translation

WARNING: NO PLACE
TO BREATHE ON THIS PLANET…

“Long, long ago, it seems
that lovers exchanged words of love: ‘the moon is so pretty.’”
“…What’s the moon?”
“They say it floated in the sky of that ruined planet.”

WARNING: NO PLACE
TO BREATHE ON THIS PLANET

You kicked an empty can
and it hit God’s forehead.

The mischief-loving fairy
tried to make a bomb
and the hasty alien
dropped it by mistake.
The lonesome shinigami
tried making jealousy
and the honest people
killed each other far too seriously.

A single beautiful planet was lost.
That’s all. It happens all the time.

WARNING: NO PLACE
TO BREATHE ON THIS PLANET

God flew into a rage
and stopped the planet from following them. (1)

If I could be Adam and Eve
this would never happen again.
If I could be Adam and Eve…

The angel, a researcher,
tried to make a bomb
and the hot-tempered ghost
dropped it by mistake.
The lonesome shinigami
suggested contempt
and the honest people
killed each other conscientiously.

A single beautiful planet was lost.
That’s all. It happens all the time.

Countless precious lives are erased.
That’s all. It happens all the time.
