歌詞

あの歓楽街の場末のバーに
寄り道しなければ良かったんだ
したら鮮血も汗も垂らさずに
楽にいれそうだった
けど何万回やったってきっと
あの歌にやられちまって最後 
深い快楽奈落に堕ちていく

正攻法は歌わねぇ
だって正解なんざ裏の裏

さぁ松明に火を灯せ
その地の行く末 アナタの影
快楽に身を委ね
己が進めば道は遥か
アナタが残した言葉なら
それでも構わず受け止める

また懐古を崇拝 烏合の集会
口揃え「あの頃は良かった」って
笑っちゃいるけど悲しい表情
そんな目で俺を見んな
ただ何億回やったって絶対
またこの時代を選んで生きたい
息を吸って粋に生きイキるだけ

それでも松明に火を灯せ
傷口を炎で焼いて塞げ
冷徹な眼差しに
その身焦がれども進む業火
油は売らずに身に乗せる
愚か者が故登るだけ

大行進を引き連れとうとう
最前線へ殴り込み

さぁ松明に火を灯せ
その地の行く末 貴方の影
快楽に身を委ね
己が進めば道は遥か
アナタが残した言葉なら
それでも構わず受け止める
今馬鹿見る覚悟の愚直さで
仮面を脱ぎ捨て歩き出す

Romanisation

ano kanrakugai no basue no baa ni
yorimichi shinakereba yokatta nda
shitara senketsu mo ase mo tarasazu ni
raku ni iresou datta
kedo nanman-kai yatta tte kitto
ano uta ni yararechimatte saigo
fukai kairaku naraku ni ochite iku

seikouhou wa utawanee
datte seikai nanza ura no ura

saa taimatsu ni hi o tomose
sono chi no yukusue anata no kage
kairaku ni mi o yudane
ono ga susumeba michi wa haruka
anata ga nokoshita kotoba nara
sore demo kamawazu uketomeru

sore demo taimatsu ni hi o tomose
kizuguchi o honoo de yaite fusage
reitetsu na manazashi ni
sono mi kogaredomo susumu gouka
abura wa urazu ni mi ni noseru

anata ga nokoshita kotoba nara
sore demo kamawazu uketomeru
ima baka miru kakugo no guchokusa de

Translation

I should never have stopped off
at that bar on the pleasure district’s outskirts.
I would never have sweated or shed blood
and I would have been at peace.
Still, even if I had thousands of tries
I’d fall to the depths of pleasure
the moment I succumbed to that song.

I’m not gonna sing as a frontal attack
because it’s best to outwit your enemy.

C’mon, set the bamboo torch alight!
The fate of that land rests in your shadow.
Abandon yourself to pleasure
for the path ahead is long.
I won’t worry about the words you left behind
and I’ll accept it.

The crowd still worships nostalgia
and says the same thing: “Things were better back then.”
They laugh with sorrowful faces.
Don’t look at me like that.
Even if I had a million tries
I’d still choose this era to live in.
I’d just take a deep breath and live a refined life.

But go on, set the bamboo torch alight!
Burn your wounds to seal them shut
and keep your gaze icy.
Your body may burn, but the hellfire will press on.
Don’t dawdle to sell your oil, pour it on yourself!
The fools will only ascend.

I took the procession along
and at last attacked the enemy’s front line.

C’mon, set the bamboo torch alight!
The fate of that land rests in your shadow.
Abandon yourself to pleasure
for the path ahead is long.
I won’t worry about the words you left behind
and I’ll accept it.
Now, I tear off my mask and start walking
with the naivete to look down on others.
