There’s some clever aquatic imagery used in this song. For example, the title ベタ (beta) means ‘clichéd’ on the surface, but is also used for the fish ‘betta’. You also have a reference to a goldfish (金魚) and the word for hippocampus, 海馬 (kaiba) also means seahorse.


歌詞

当てにしちゃいないさ 愛尓あいにー
愛に 溺れてしまう前に
老酒飲み干してさ

さあ いつだって逃げといで
今宵は良い宵よ 乱酔どうだい
ある程度補えるものだよ
淋しさとは

ランジェリーめかし込んだ金魚は
血小板が圧倒的に足りない
度し難い事ばかりねこの世は
私はというと溢血で逝きたい

足んない足んない僕らに乾杯
一杯 交わそうかい
聖母 この部屋は寂しいけど
私を頼っておいで
いつだって逃げておいで
足んない足んない
満たされたいんでしょいっぱい 
もう一杯!
そしたらベタなセリフを頂戴
内緒ね 指切って
秘密 秘密
恥ずかしい程にロンリー
当てにしちゃいないさ 愛尓
愛に溺れてしまう前に
老酒飲み干してさ

仙人草とアルデヒド
へばりつく呼気とアザレアピンク
痺れる喉はエーテルの所為
したらば辞世の句を聞いて
「ありがとう選んでくれて」

ね 貴方の体内で解けたいな
胎内で抱き合って七度五の接点で溶けたいな
痛いな

くだんないつまんないこの世に乾杯
どうだい?いけそうかい
聖母 ごまかせない 
さびしいのよ
私を頼っておいで
あなたから逃げておいで
万代死に損ないのあたしは
いっぱい もういっぱい
最後にベタなセリフを頂戴

内緒にしてあげるわ 秘密 
盃グラスに混じったブルーに
気づいていたのは秘密 
いんへるのに落ちんの 嗚呼
飼い殺してねちゃんと
ダーリン 愛尓
きみの海馬に生きるの
当てにしちゃいないさ 愛尓
愛に溺れてしまったが故に!

Translation

I don’t expect much from I love yous.
Before I drown in love
I’ll drain my glass of wine.

Alright, how much longer will you run away?
It’s a good night, so why not get drunk.
I’m compensating just a bit
for my loneliness.

The goldfish all decked out in lingerie
is overwhelmingly lacking in platelets.
This world’s full of things beyond help.
If you ask me, I wanna die from a haemorrhage.

There’s not enough, not enough. A toast to us!
Why not share a cup?
Holy mother, this room is lonely
but you can count on me.
How much longer will you run away?
Not enough, not enough.
You want to be filled to the brim, right?
One more cup!
And then say those clichéd words to me.
It’s a secret. Pinky promise!
It’s utterly private.
I’m so lonely it’s embarrassing.
I don’t expect much from I love yous.
Before I drown in love
I’ll drain my glass of wine.

Mesona and aldehyde.
Clinging breaths and azalea pink.
The ether numbs my throat
and then I listen to the farewell poem.
“Thank you for choosing me.”

Y’know, I want to melt inside you.
I want to hug inside your womb and melt with 7.5 degrees of contact.
How painful.

A toast to this world, which is dead boring!
Well? Can you do it?
Holy mother, don’t cheat me.
I’m so lonely.
Count on me.
I’ll escape you.
I’ve failed an eternity’s worth of deaths
and now I’m full. One more.
When I die, say those clichéd words to me.

I’ll keep it secret for you. It’s private.
I won’t tell anyone that I noticed the blue
mixed into the glass.
I’ll inhale but won’t fall. Ah…
Make sure you keep me until I die.
Darling, I love you.
I live in your hippocampus.
I don’t expect much from I love yous
because I’ve drowned in love!
