歌詞

行き交う人の視線言葉は意味を持たず
等身大の牙を見せていた
劣等感に怯え歌う虚な夢と現
誰にも見られたくないから

羽撃く羽すら捥がれてしまうなら
翼の無い世界で生きていくために

例えば何処かガラス窓の向こうから
壁隔て見つめてはその心に鍵掛けて
透明な素顔隠す仮面を付け替えて
今日も始まる滑稽なMasquerade

想像上の檻の中で始まる椅子取りゲーム
零れ落ちた枷は今
焦燥感と踊る世界で揺蕩う嘘と詭弁
失くした面影はまだ

戯けたフリして涙も渇くなら
置き去りの心だけ朽ちていくのかな

例えば何処か遠い空の向こうまで
逃げ出していけるなら扉の前立ち尽くし
それでも私張り付く仮面は剥がれずに
独り堕ちてく空虚なIrony

張り詰めた糸が絡めてしまうなら
目を閉じて息止めて瞬きの先へ

例えば何処かガラス窓の向こうから
届く声あるならば扉の鍵抉じ開けて
不器用な顔で笑う仮面を脱ぎ捨てて
明日を生きてくこの手がFantasy

Translation

I was faced with the gazes of passers-by. Words were meaningless
and I bared life-sized fangs.
I tremble from my inferiority complex and sing of hollow dreams and reality
because I don’t want to be seen by anyone.

If I’ll pluck out my feathers in the end
then I’ll do it so I can live in a world without wings.

It’s like I’m locking someone’s heart, with a wall between us
while I stare at them from behind a window.
I put on a mask that hides my true, clear face.
Today, the funny masquerade starts again.

A game of musical chairs begins inside this imaginary cage.
My shackles fell like tears.
In this world, where I dance impatiently, lies and sophistry drift around.
My lost face remains so.

If my tears, too, will dry from playing the fool
then I wonder if only my abandoned heart will rot away.

If only I could escape to somewhere far beyond
the distant sky. I stand still in front of the door.
And yet, I don’t tear off my mask
and I fall alone. This is hollow irony.

If taut strings will twine around me
then I’ll close my eyes and stop breathing in the blink of an eye.

It’s like I’m looking from behind a window.
If my voice will reach, then I’ll unlock the door.
I smile awkwardly and throw away my mask.
I will live on to tomorrow. Within my hands is a fantasy.
