This is another song that’s full of clever wordplay in Japanese. I assume the title itself is also a form of wordplay, but I left it untranslated since I was unable to determine what it means…


あーつまんないね 理解ができない声も
交わり方すら難問 楽に素晴らしい声も作品も
集まればデーモン ロクでもないことでセーブ
気にならないこともギャーギャーと叫ぶ
自分だけで Fun Fun Fun Fun あのサドニスト
脅すだけよね

aa tsumannai ne rikai ga dekinai koe mo
majiwarikata sura nanmon raku ni subarashii koe mo sakuhin mo
atsumareba deemon roku demo nai koto de seebu
ki ni naranai koto mo gyaa gyaa to sakebu
jibun dake de Fun Fun Fun Fun ano sadonisuto
odokasu dake yo ne

Ah, those incomprehensible voices are so boring.
There are voices and works that are fun and wonderful, with complex ways of coming together.
Gather them and you get a demon, saved by something so worthless.
I squawk out things not worth worrying about, too.
On my own it’s fun, fun, fun, fun. That sardonist
just threatens.

「友達だよね?」
ズルいのなんの
血の気も引くほど引いた
いじられ上手を演じても
自分だけを…
1・2・3・4

“tomodachi da yo ne?”
zurui no nan no
chi no ke mo hiku hodo to hiita
ijirare jouzu o enjitemo
jibun dake o…
1 2 3 4

“We’re friends, right?”
How dishonest.
I went as pale as I could.
I pretended to be good at being teased
but it’s just me…
1, 2, 3, 4.

Yeah Ah!
力量 才能 見切ろう 最良
ワンツーサンシー 明日はずっと見えない
酷だけど 時々は忘れてね?
ありったけの拷問受けるみたい
Yeah I know!
生き霊さえも イキろう最高
集まれば烏合の老舗
まず僕は針詰めたら 1・2・3・4・5・6・7and8
またね

Yeah Ah!

Yeah I know!
ikiryou sae mo ikirou saikou

Yeah ah!
Let’s give up on our strength and talents. It’s the best!
1, 2, 3, 4… The future wasn’t in sight all along.
It’s harsh, but won’t you forget sometimes?
It seems like you’ve received all the torture there is.
Yeah I know!
Even vengeful spirits will live. It’s the best!
When gathered together, the veterans are noisy like a murder of crows.
To begin with, once I move the needle… 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8.
See ya!

見たい 見たい 泥すら クラッ
キラキラきらきら光るのに
修羅ってるだらけの ちゃらんぽらんとは
ケラケラしたいのに
僕は今 キライ キライ キライ 「のろいなあ」
「こいつは裸だ!見ろ見ろ最低だ!」

mitai mitai doro sura kura
kira kira kira kira hikaru no ni
shura tteru darake no charan poran to wa
kera kera shitai no ni
boku wa ima kirai kirai kirai “noroi naa”
“koitsu wa hadaka da! miro miro saitei da!”

I wanna see, I wanna see. Even the mire is dark
though it’s shining and glistening.
I’m happy-go-lucky among all this fighting
because I just want to cackle
but I hate it now. I hate it, I hate it! “You’re so stupid.”
“They’re nude! Look, look, how disgusting!”

あーつまんないね 理解ができない恋も
交わり方すら難問 楽に素晴らしい脳も策士も
世辞はないね

aa tsumannai ne rikai ga dekinai koe mo
majiwari kata sura nanmon raku ni subarashii nou mo sakushi mo
seji wa nai ne

Ah, incomprehensible love is so boring
and there are minds and schemers that are fun and wonderful, with complex ways of coming together.
That’s not a compliment.

「友達だよね?」
うるさい!あーもう!
血の気も引くほど泣いた
やらされ上手を演じても
自分だけの
1・2・3・4

“tomodachi da yo ne?”
urusai! aa mou!

1 2 3 4

“We’re friends, right?”
Shut up! Seriously…
I went as pale as I could.
I pretended to be good at being made to do stuff
but it’s just me…
1, 2, 3, 4.

Yeah Ah!
力量 才能 見切ろう 最良
ワンツーサンシー 明後日もずっと見えない
酷だから ドキドキは忘れたい
ありったけの妄想捨てるみたい
Yeah I know!
生き様さえも 生きたい さあ行こう
集まれば孤高のシンパシー
まず誰だ 真に受けたい 1・2・3・4・5・6・7and8

Yeah, ah!
Let’s give up on our strength and talents. It’s the best!
1, 2, 3, 4… The day after tomorrow wasn’t in sight all along.
It’s harsh, so I want to forget this excitement.
It seems like you’ve cast aside all the delusions there are.
Yeah I know!
Even my way of life is to want to live. It’s the best!
When gathered together, it’s aloof sympathy.
Who’s first? I want to receive the truth. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8.
See ya!

日々詰まります
これはグツグツ握るから良しとしよう
「在るが儘の君を二発までなら悪しとするんだろう」
身分だっけ?もう 荒らすだけ退け!退け!見向け!と寝てる
弾ませなきゃね

hibi tsumarimasu
kore wa gutsu gutsu nigiru kara yoshi yo shiyou
“aru ga mama no kimi o nihatsu made nara ashi to suru ndarou”
mibun dakke? mou arasu dake doke! doke! mimuke! to neteru
hazumasenakya ne

My days are full.
I grip it with rage, so I’ll value it.
“If, as you are, you’ll take up to two bursts, then maybe I’ll assume you’re the wicked one.”
What was your status again? If you’re just going to rampage, move aside! Move aside! Look around! And so, I fell asleep.
I’ve gotta liven it up.

浅いね
痛いね
難しいことは 家 破

asai ne

How shallow.
How painful.
Difficult things are… yeah, ah!
(1)

We know!

Yeah Ah!

Let’s give up on our strength and talents. It’s the best!
1, 2, 3, 4… The future wasn’t in sight all along.
It’s harsh, but won’t you forget sometimes?
It seems like you’ve received all the torture there is.
Yeah I know!
Even vengeful spirits will live. It’s the best!
When gathered together, the veterans are noisy like a murder of crows.
To begin with, once I move the needle… 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8.

Yeah I know!
力量 才能 見切ろう 最良
集まれば烏合の所為です
或いは そもそも 寒い世の中だ
それで いいかな?

Yeah I know!

atsumareba ugou no sei desu
arui wa somo somo samui yo no naka da
sore de ii kana?

Yeah I know!
Let’s give up on our strength and talents. It’s the best!
When gathered together, this is the result of an unruly gathering
or, possibly, it’s within a world that was cold from the start.
Are things okay like that?


(1) The two characters used here, 家 and 破, are pronounced ‘ie’ and ‘ha’, which sounds similar to ‘Yeah, ah’. Separately, they mean house and destruction.

An opportunity calls. “It’s me!” yeah, that’s right
though I seem to be pouting, “ah, that’s how it is.”
C’mon, speak to me logically and give me a foundation
that just supports ‘love.

The basis that only supports ‘I’ (1)

We’re honour student boys.
We never draw a blank.
Our maxim: “I’m gonna be a lawyer!” See? We passed!
Look who’s talking. Is that so?

Miyu-chan is the most wanted girl in the class.
There’s two, three tragedies who you only date to have sex with.
Sit down puppy! Oh, won’t you?
You know, mother, your kids seem so happy.

“理想”を着飾る勝者マンなんだ そうなんだ

We’re victors, men dressed up in ideals. That’s right.
The parent-teacher interview is a hero’s interview.
It’s basically a scripted love wagon.
(1)
By the way, it seems
as though I’ve left how I really feel somewhere.
Before I knew it, nothing was left behind.
Bizen is sinful and dumbfounded.

The rules aren’t in a position to oppose
us social creatures.
What I want to do, who I want to be…
I’m killing everyone!
I’m weird. My serious side
wants to get muddied up with my real self.
One by one, the burial dances take place.
I can’t sleep. How annoying.

We’re untouchable and avant-garde.
This is the Hammurabi code of falling in love. (2)
It’s an idiotic explanation, huh? Well, I guess.
“In any case, you’re true to your feelings.”
My dad often vanishes into the streets at night searching for something.
He could be drawing beauties on a folding screen
or having cravings for passion.

This was an interesting song, and we don’t really get any hints as to what it means from the video. I feel like it’s a bit of a critique of modern Japan, with hints of the music business and commercialised music-making thrown in for good measure.

反騰 目指してマーケット
アンアン 鳴いてパレード

sukaa to shite manee

Money—it’s so refreshing.
The market aims for a reactionary price rise.
In the dark, the parade calls.
The salaried workers are hanging with all their might.

As if we’d put our rank aside.
It’s just like a slave play.

My relationship status is on full display,
Along with my hobbies and quirks.

It’s meaningless absurdity, but I’m singin’.
With lips that don’t split open, I’m singin’.
The privacy of strangers
is so appetising.
When I lose interest, it’s the end.
I hope that day is slow to arrive.

The stake that sticks out is hammered down singin’.
Finding all the faults, I’m singing.
The unhappiness of strangers
is so appetising.
Ideals that don’t get noticed are mirages.
Farewell, farewell, farewell, farewell…

I distance myself from the young man.
Why is nobody looking?
I don’t know anything about society.
I fail my interview.

You can get more ratings
with adultery, pills, and murder.
There’s an old lady in the neighbourhood—
what kind of person is she?

切り取るスピーチをチョキチョキ
火のないところにモクモク
「あの発言には是非とも気を付けて欲しいね」

kiritoru supiichi o chokichoki
hi no nai tokoro ni mokumoku
“ano hatsugen ni wa zehi tomo ki o tsukete hoshii ne”

I cut down the speech: snip, snip.
Smoke billows up where there’s no fire.
“I want you to be careful of saying things like that.”

ヒドイよね?
こりゃヒドイよね?
ホラ見て見て?
なぜ見ない?

It’s cruel, right?
It’s so cruel, isn’t it?
Come on, won’t you take a look?
Why aren’t you looking?

ああ いいの 潤うのなら
いくつの P.I.S ゴーイン 痛々しい
アイギブミー あゝ 良い子
スイングオン シングオン 愛 四苦 音

怒をニコニコひた隠したり

Okay, fine then. If I’m going to profit off it,
Then how many P.I.S are goin’? It’s pathetic.
(1)
I give me—ah, a good kid.
Swing on, sing on, I sick on.
(2)
The dance empties a little.
Tap, tap, tap, tap, tap.
I smoothly rally my sorrow,
I let out my comfort in a gushing stream,
And I cover up my rage with a grin.
What about my happiness?
Ahhhh!

訳ない理不尽ならシンギン
私たちローファイ・タイムズ
国民 皆様のため
リアルを伝えましょう
それが本当の”リアル”かどうかは
実はどうでもいいことだけど

wake nai rifujin nara shingin
watashitachi roofai taimuzu
kokumin minasama no tame
riaru o tsutaemashou
sore ga hontou no “riaru” ka douka wa
jitsu wa dou demo ii koto dakedo

If we’re living in meaningless absurdity, let’s sing.
We’re in lo-fi times.
For the sake of all the citizens,
Let’s tell them about what’s real
even though it doesn’t really matter
whether it’s truly ‘reality.’

出る杭ボッコボコにシンギン
残さず粗探しシンギン
みんな好きなはずなのに
どうしてとやかく言うの?
文句あるなら見なけりゃいいじゃん
サラバ

deru kui bokkoboko ni shingin
nokosazu hobo sagashi shingin
minna suki na hazu nanoni
doushite toyakaku iu no?
monku aru nara minakerya ii jan
saraba

The stake that sticks out is hammered down singin’.
Finding all the faults, I’m singing.
I’m supposed to like everyone
so why am I complaining about them?
If you have a complaint, you don’t need to watch, right?
Farewell.

「サラバ」

“saraba”

“Farewell.”


(1) P.I.S is used in Japan to refer to ‘Public Information Style Corporation’. They’re an artist production corporation, which is kind of like a talent agency or a label. Some people joke that it stands for パーッと・一緒に・騒ごう (Pa tto, Issho ni, Sawagou – enthusiastic merrymaking together).
(2) 愛 四苦 音 (ai, shiku, on – Love, four kinds of Buddhist suffering, sound) is written, but when interpteted in the context of the line we can conclude that it’s the sound of the words as a whole (I sick on) that’s most important, not what they actually mean individually.
(3) Various different kanji that are read as ‘a’ are used here: 啞, 亜, 阿, 明, 存, 在, 吾, 飽 (Mute, Asia, corner, exist, located in, me, full).
