ピース

Peace

Album: オメガリズム (Omega Rhythm)
Performed by: UPLIFT SPICE
Release date: 12 August 2009

Requested by: Runixzan

The interesting part about this title is that it can be translated as ‘Peace’ or ‘Piece.’ The lyrics make use of the similarity in pronunciation, especially the last line, where the ambiguous katakana variant ピース (piisu) is used.


歌詞

何億万年前かにタイムスリップしてバンゲア大陸に立ってみたいんだ
確かめたいんだ この目で どんな広くどんなでっかいもんか
僕らに託されたのは

この地球が見た奇跡はこんなにバラバラの世界じゃなかったはずだ
きっととめどなく光であふれた隔てのない世界があったはずだ
ここにある全てのpieceは地球上に
今つなげようひとつずつ 途方がないわけじゃない
奇跡をとりもどしに行こう

全人類の内の90%がヒーローだったとしても
9人が寄って集って悪のたった1人を倒すのは
正義って言えやしないよ

争わなくても奪い合わなくても僕らには戦う術が他にあるはずだ
手と手を取って足並み揃えて僕らは進む 悲しみを乗り越えて
ここにある全てのpeaceは地球上に
今つなげようひとつずつ 途方がないわけじゃない
奇跡をとりもどしに行こう

愛はこの頭上に 愛はこの大地に この世界に絶えず降り注いで
愛は命を生み 愛は僕らを生み みなぎる愛の上に立っているんだ
どこまでも続こう 地球最大級規模の愛と平和を叫ぼう今
僕らが掲げるピースはきっと世界を救う

Translation

I want to travel millions of years back in time and stand upon Pangaea.
I want to see with my own eyes how big and vast it was.
Something was left behind for us.

The miracle the Earth witnessed shouldn’t have been a world in pieces.
It should have been a world without barriers, overflowing with light.
All the pieces are here on the globe.
Let’s put them together one by one. There must be a way.
Let’s take back our miracle.

Even if 90% of the population were heroes
9 people would gather to beat a single villain.
I can’t say that’s justice.

There must be a way for us to fight without arguing or struggling.
We’ll take hands and advance in tandem, overcoming sadness.
All peace is here, atop the globe.
Let’s put it together bit by bit. There must be a way.
Let’s take back our miracle.

Love is overhead. Love is falling endlessly on the ground, on this world.
Love creates life. Love creates us. We stand atop overflowing love.
Let’s keep going. Now, let’s proclaim love and peace, the grandest the world has seen.
Our peace will save the world.
