ぱらぱら (parapara) runs through the song as a magic spell of sorts. I was tempted to go a step further and translate it as ‘crumbly wumbly’. I refrained, though…

We normally see ほど (hodo) in the ば~ほど pattern, which means ‘the more you ~, the more you ~’. That’s not the case here – it tends to appear after a noun, which I think serves a sort of exaggerating purpose. Since the whole song’s about breaking things, you could say it emphasises the importance of what’s being broken.


物を壊すのは何でこんなに楽しいんだ オーレ!

mono o kowasu no wa nan de konna ni tanoshii nda, oore!

Why is it so fun to destroy things? Olé!

物心ついたころから 色んな物を壊してきた
時計 茶碗 リモコン 積み木

monogokoro tsuita koro kara ironna mono o kowashite kita
tokei chawan rimokon tsumiki

Since I became aware, I’ve destroyed a whole bunch of things:
Clocks, teacups, remote controls, building blocks…

大事なもの大切なものが 特に面白くって
人形 パズル 電話 写真

daijina mono taisetsu na mono ga toku ni omoshirokutte
ningyou pazuru denwa shashin

Important and precious things are particularly entertaining:
Dolls, puzzles, phones, photos…

怒ってて泣いてて みんなの顔は怖かったけれど
こんなに壊れやすいのに そんなに大切にして
手の届くとこに置いておくだなんて
僕はおかしくって 不安で楽しくって 静かに手を伸ばし

okottete naitete minna no kao wa kowakattakeredo
konna ni koware yasui noni sonna ni taisetsu ni shite
te no todoku toko ni oite oku da nante
boku wa okashikutte fuande tanoshikutte shizuka ni te o nobashi

Whether they got mad or cried, everyone looked so scared. Still…
Things are so easy to break, and they’ve taken such good care of them
yet they leave them in arm’s reach.
I get all weird and find the tension so fun. Silently, I reach out.

ぱらぱら
ぱらぱらぱらぱら
ぱらぱら 君の物を壊すのが特に楽しくて
ぱらぱらぱらぱら
ぱらぱら 君の大事な物ほど特に楽しくて

parapara
parapara parapara
parapara kimi no mono o kowasu no ga toku ni tanoshikute
parapara parapara

Crumbly,
Crumbly, crumbly.
Crumbly. It’s especially fun to break your things.
Crumbly, crumbly.
Crumbly. Your valuables are even more fun to break.

ばらばら ばらばら むすんで ひらいて
一度限りじゃ楽しめないから
なおして こわして なおして こわして
君も元の 形を忘れてる

barabara barabara musunde hiraite
ichido kagiri ja tanoshimenai kara
naoshite kowashite naoshite kowashite
kimi mo moto no katachi o wasureteru

Things are all in pieces. Close, open…
I can’t have fun if it’s just once
so I fix it, break it, fix it, and break it again.
You, too, forget what it originally looked like.

思い出が詰まったものほど何度も壊した
ぬいぐるみ プラモ ピアノ 手紙
気持ちがこもったものほど丁寧に壊した
楽器 絵画 焼き物 彫刻

omoide ga tsumatta mono hodo nando mo kowashita
nuigurumi puramo piano tegami
kimochi ga komotta mono hodo teinei ni kowashita
gakki kaiga yakimono choukoku

I’ve even demolished things crammed full of memories:
Stuffed toys, plastic models, pianos, letters…
I’ve even carefully demolished things full of feelings:
Musical instruments, paintings, pottery, sculptures…

物に願い想い込めるときに 人の魂が
乗り移り宿りいつまでも残るから
大事な物ほどたくさんの魂が
脆く息をして 生きてて楽しくって 静かに手をかけて

mono ni negai omoi komeru toki ni hito no tamashii ga
nori utsuri yadori itsu made mo nokoru kara
daijina mono hodo takusan no tamashii ga
moroku iki o shite ikitete tanoshikutte shizuka ni te o kakete

When people put their hopes and feelings in things,
Their souls cross over and dwell in them, since they’ll last forever.
The more precious things exist, the more souls there are.
They breathe fragilely, enjoy life, and are then silently killed.

ぱらぱら
ぱらぱらぱらぱら
ぱらぱら 君の魂を何度も壊したくて
ぱらぱらぱらぱら
ぱらぱら 君の生きてる魂を消したくて

parapara
parapara parapara

parapara parapara

Crumbly,
Crumbly, crumbly.
Crumbly. I want to keep breaking your soul.
Crumbly, crumbly.
Crumbly. I want to erase your living soul.

ばらばら ばらばら ばらばらになって
君の魂が消え行く瞬間
なおして こわして なおして こわして
僕は笑って 君は泣いてる

barabara barabara barabara ni natte
kimi no tamashii ga kie yuku shunkan
naoshite kowashite naoshite kowashite
boku wa waratte, kimi wa naiteru

In pieces, in pieces, things end up in pieces
and the moment your soul vanishes…
I’ll fix it, I’ll break it, I’ll fix it and break it.
I laugh and you cry.

ララララララララ・・・・・・

ぱらぱらぱらぱら
ぱらぱら 君の魂は もう僕に乗り移ったね
ぱらぱらぱらぱら
ぱらぱら 僕の魂も もう君に乗り移ってる
ぱらぱらぱらぱら
ぱらぱら 君の大事な ものをぱらぱら壊して
ぱらぱらぱらぱら
ぱらぱら 消えてなくなる 瞬間が気持よくて

Still,
Crumbly, crumbly.
Crumbly. You followed along. You love me.
Crumbly, crumbly.
Crumbly. I love you, who also loves me.
Crumbly, crumbly.
Crumbly. Your soul is possessing me now.
Crumbly, crumbly.
Crumbly. My soul is possessing you now.
Crumbly, crumbly.
Crumbly. I crumble up your precious thing.
Crumbly, crumbly.
Crumbly. It feels so good the moment it vanishes.

ぱらぱら ぱらぱら 君の大切な僕を 壊しちゃったから

君にごめんなさいを言えないまま

parapara parapara kimi no taisetsu na boku o kowashichatta kara

Crumbly, crumbly. I destroyed myself, so precious to you,
So I fix it and break it and then I can’t fix it. I can never
say sorry to you.

I began listening to this song and had to a double-take – I’d heard it before! I had a brief stint playing Dragalia Lost, and a version of this song featuring DAOKO features heavily in it. Her version is called ゆめうつつ (yumeutsutsu, Half-Awake, Half-Asleep).


閃光が瞬く 
閃光が瞬く 
黒目の上にきれいな閃光がずっと 

senkou ga matataku
senkou ga matataku
kurome no ue ni kirei na senkou ga zutto

That glint twinkles.
That glint twinkles.
The beautiful glint in the dark of your eyes twinkles eternally…

美しい美しい光が消えないように 
ずっとずっと追いかけては集めている 
捕まえては消え 捕まえては消え 
捕まえては 

utsukushii utsukushii hikari ga kienai you ni
zutto zutto oikakete wa atsumete iru
tsukamaete wa kie tsukamaete wa kie
tsukamaete wa

So that beautiful, beautiful light would not go out,
I always, always pursued it and gathered it up.
I catch it and it vanishes. I catch it and it vanishes.
I catch it and—

はっとするよ 時の流れが憂鬱で 眠れない夜 
はっとするよ からっぽだから なんにもないから 頭と身体が膿でいっぱい 

hatto suru yo toki no nagare ga yuutsu de nemurenai yoru
hatto suru yo karappo dakara nannimo nai kara atama to karada ga umi de ippai

I was taken aback. The passage of time was melancholy during that sleepless night.
I was taken aback. Because I am empty and insignificant, my head and body are crammed with pus.

太鼓の音がする 
太鼓の音がする 
胸の中を叩く太鼓の音がずっと 

taiko no oto ga suru
taiko no oto ga suru
mune no naka o tataku taiko no oto ga zutto

I hear the sound of drums.
I hear the sound of drums.
The sound of drums beating inside my heart continues eternally…

戦え戦え踊れ踊れと 
不安定なテンポで太鼓が胸の中を叩く 
敵はどこ敵はどこ相手はそこだと 
いつまでも探せ探せと叩き叩き 
敵だ敵だと叩いて叩いて 探せ探せと

tatakae tatakae odore odore to
fuantei na tenpo de taiko ga mune no naka o tataku
teki wa doko teki wa doko aite wa soko da to
itsu made mo sagase sagase to tataki tataki
teki da teki da to tataite tataite sagase sagase to

“Fight! Fight! Dance! Dance!”
Urging me on at an unstable tempo, the drums beat inside my heart.
“Where are your enemies? Where?! Your allies are over there.”
“Search forever! Search!” They continue to beat and beat.
“Enemy! Enemy!” They beat and beat. “Search! Search!”

捕まえては消え 捕まえては消え 
捕まえては 

tsukamaete wa kie tsukamaete wa kie
taukamaete wa

I catch it and it vanishes. I catch it and it vanishes.
I catch it and—

はっとするよ 時の流れが憂鬱で 眠れない夜 
はっとするよ からっぽだから なんにもないから 頭と身体がヒビでいっぱい 

hatto suru yo toki no nagare ga yuutsu de nemurenai yoru
hatto suru yo karappo dakara nannimo nai kara atama to karada ga hibi de ippai

I was taken aback. The passage of time was melancholy during that sleepless night.
I was taken aback. Because I am empty and insignificant, my head and body are full of cracks.

ららら ららら まわりまわるよずっと 目が くらんでいるから 
ららら ららら 螺旋の中をずっと 回って 疲れて眠って光と音の渦

ra ra ra ra ra ra mawari mawaru yo zutto me ga kurande iru kara
ra ra ra ra ra ra rasen no naka o zutto mawatte tsukarete nemutte hikari to oto no uzu

La la la, la la la… I’ll spin around forever! After all, I’m dizzy…
La la la, la la la… Inside a helix, I’ll turn forever! I’ll grow tired and sleep in a vortex of light and sound.

The interesting thing about this song is that it isn’t necessarily clear whether the clockwork is part of the speaker, or whether it’s something completely different. This song gives me a very steampunk feel…


ラララ ラララ

rarara rarara

La la la… La la la…

いつも追われてる あちらもこちらもセカセカと
やぶれた地図帳と 壊れた時計を見つめてる
ああ おもしろいな ああ

itsumo owareteru achira mo kochira mo seka seka to
yabureta chizuchou to kowareta tokei o mitsumeteru
aa omoshiroi na aa

I’m always being pursued. I rush this way and that, restlessly.
I look at the torn atlas and the broken clock.
Ah, how fascinating. Ah…

なぜ?なぜ?目隠しされても気づかない

naze? naze? mekakushi sarete mo kidzukanai

Why? Why? I’m blindfolded, yet I don’t notice it.

どこにゆくのかわからない いつつくのかわからない
やぶれかぶれの道の上 今一緒に走ろうよ

doko ni yuku no ka wakaranai itsu tsuku no ka wakaranai
yabure kabure no michi no ue ima issho ni hashirou yo

I don’t know where I’m going, and I don’t know when I’ll arrive.
Now, let’s run atop a desperate road together!

焼けてただれてただの煤 時はいつでも後ろ向き
いつかどこかで迎えるよ さあ その時まで
セカセカ 動くよ ぜんまいじかけを回します
動くよ

yakete tadarete tada no susu toki wa itsu demo ushiro muki
itsuka doko ka de mukaeru yo saa sono toki made
seka seka ugoku yo zenmai jikake o mawashimasu
ugoku yo

Burned and blistered, I am just soot. Time is always pessimistic.
Someday, somewhere, I will go and meet you. So, until that time…
I’ll move restlessly! I’ll wind the clockwork mechanism.
It will move!

いつも まわってる 袋小路でセカセカと
ちぎれた触覚で 行き止まりばかり見つけるよ
ええ おもしろいの です

itsumo mawatteru fukurokouji de seka seka to
chigireta shokkaku de ikidomari bakari mitsukeru yo
ee omoshiroi no desu

I’m always turning around in a blind alley, restlessly.
With my torn-away sense of touch, all I find are dead ends.
Oh, it’s so fascinating.

なぜ?なぜ?壊れた機械が叫んでる

naze? naze? kowareta kikai ga sakenderu

Why? Why? The broken machine screams.

どこにゆくのかわからない いつつくのかわからない
イバラまみれの箱庭で さあ一緒に踊ろうよ

doko ni yuku no ka wakaranai itsu tsuku no ka wakaranai
ibara mamire no hakoniwa de saa issho ni odorou yo

I don’t know where I’m going, and I don’t know when I’ll arrive.
Now, let’s dance in a thorn-covered miniature garden together!

溶けて崩れてただのクズ 踏んで渡ってただの橋
いつかどこかで迎えるよ さあ それでもまた
セカセカ 動いて ぜんまいじかけが壊れます
動かない

tokete kuzurete tada no kuzu funde watatte tada no hashi
itsuka dokoka de mukaeru yo saa sore demo mata
seka seka ugoite zenmai jikake ga kowaremasu
ugokanai

Melted and misshapen, I am just trash. I am just a bridge, trodden on and crossed over.
Someday, somewhere, I will go and meet you. Come on! Still, once again,
I move restlessly. The clockwork mechanism is broken.
It doesn’t move.

ぼくは壊れたい
壊れて捨てられ休みたい
複雑なロボットさ
心があるような気がしてる

boku wa kowaretai
kowarete suterare yasumitai
fukuzatsu na robotto sa
kokoro ga aru you na ki ga shiteru

I want to be broken.
I want to be broken, cast aside, and then I want to rest.
I’m a complex robot.
It feels like I’ve got a heart…

ぼくは壊れたい
壊れて捨てられ休みたい
複雑なロボットさ

I want to be broken.
I want to be broken, cast aside, and then to rest.
I’m a complex robot.
It feels like I’ve got a heart…

ぼくは休みたい
きみを刺すまで動くから
騙しているよ その時まで
平和だよ oh

I want to rest.
I’ll move until I stab you,
So I’m deceiving you until that time comes.
I’m peaceful. Oh…
La la la, la la la.

This track really demonstrates how the ましょう (mashou) verb ending can mean both “I will –” and “let’s –“. Context is key in determining which one to go with!


おいでおいでからす
まっくら闇の中へ
溶けない飴をあげましょう
羽と足をくださいな

oide oide karasu

Come, come this way, raven
towards the deep darkness.
I will give you candy that will not melt.
Give me your wings and feet!

割れない風船あげましょう
ずっと楽しく膨らまそう
おいでおいでからす
まっくろ渦の中へ
溺れない肺をあげましょう
空の思い出くださいな

warenai fuusen agemashou

I will give you a balloon that will not break.
It will always stay inflated, so enjoyably.
Come, come this way, raven
into this pitch black whirlpool.
I will grant you lungs that will not drown.
Give me your memories of the sky!

さあ飛べない身体で踊りましょう
カラカラな骨だけが響くまで

Now, let’s dance with bodies that cannot fly
until only the rattling of bones resounds.
Now, I shall grant you eternity
until you become a doll, wandering in dreams.
Together, let’s enjoy
the sun that will not sink
beneath the unfading planet.

遊び果てましょう

Let’s play

Give me your soul!

Now, let’s dance with bodies that cannot fly
until only the rattling of bones resounds.
Now, I shall grant you eternity
until I drain every drop from your body.
Let’s dance to exhaustion
until you crumble to dust.
Let’s enjoy this together!

It could also be ‘Mrs. Morning, Mrs. Night’ or even ‘Mrs. Morning, Mr. Night’, so feel free to go with whichever you prefer.

I enjoy this song because it looks sweet on the surface, but actually has a really bitter core. It’s quite entertaining.


遠くに朝 近くに夜
真上に真っ赤な太陽がまわる

tooku ni asa chikaku ni yoru
maue ni makka na taiyou ga mawaru

It’s morning in the distance. It’s night nearby.
The deep red sun revolves overhead.

This is somebody’s morning. Night is next door.
Nearby, I can see a twilight-coloured figure.

死んでいるアリの行進みつめてる
夕暮れの太陽に向かって浮かんでいるよ

shinde iru ari no koushin mitsumeteru
yuugure no taiyou ni mukatte ukande iru yo

I watch the procession of dead ants.
They float towards the evening sun.

死んでいる人の行列眺めてる
朝と夜の境界線で列になってるよ

shinde iru hito no gyouretsu nagameteru
asa to yoru no kyoukaisen de retsu ni natteru yo

I gaze upon a procession of dead people.
They form a queue at the border between morning and night.

遠くに太陽 近くに雨

The sun is in the distance. Rain is close by.
Someone’s balloon is above the clouds.

誰かの声 隣の声
ないてばかりいて騒がしい 影

dareka no koe tonari no koe

I hear someone’s voice, a voice right next to me.
That figure is noisy, doing nothing but crying.

お墓のずっと遠くで祈ってる
大きな塔が道を塞いで迷子になるよ

o-haka no zutto tooku de inotteru
ookina tou ga michi wo fusaide maigo ni naru yo

I am praying, far away from the grave.
A large tower blocks my path. I lose my way.

お祈りされているけど聞こえない
聞こえないけどきっとここに届いているよ

o-inori sarete iru kedo kikoenai

Someone is praying for me, but I can’t hear.
I can’t hear, but their prayers are definitely reaching me.

死んでいるアリの行進みつめてる
ちっぽけな土くれみたいに転がっているよ

shinde iru ari no koushin mitsumeteru

I watch the procession of dead ants.
They’re rolling along like small clumps of dirt.

It disappears toward the horizon.

I see…
We live, staying disappeared. We disappear, staying alive.
We’re the type of children whose insides are blown away with a swish.
We found it. It was wrong. We found the misunderstanding.
We’re solving all the mysteries, full of things we didn’t understand.

We understand, but we don’t know. We know, but we don’t understand.
We’re the type of adults who check their answers—Correct!—and become happy.
We live, staying disappeared. We disappear, staying alive.
We’re solving all the mysteries, full of the answers we checked.
