輝く向日葵が 照らした涙
背負った罪の花 後悔を散らして

kagayaku himawari ga terashita namida
seotta tsumi no hana koukai o chirashite

Tears were illuminated by the shining sunflowers.
The flowers of my sin scatter regret.

花びら ひらひらと
風に舞って
それぞれ 別々の空へ飛ぶの
さよならも言わずに
逃げるように
大きな高い雲の向こうへ

hanabira hira hira to
kaze ni matte
sore zore betsu betsu no sora e tobu no
sayonara mo iwazu ni
nigeru you ni
ooki na takai kumo no mukou e

The petals flutter
and dance in the wind.
Do they fly to different skies?
Without saying goodbye
and as if they’re running away,
They head beyond the clouds in the vast sky.

正しい未来なんて
わからないけど
私は自分を信じていたい

tadashii mirai nante
wakaranai kedo
watashi wa jibun o shinjite itai

I don’t know
which future is correct,
But I want to believe in myself.

輝く向日葵が 指し示す道
見て見ぬフリをした あの日の私
運命に背いて 君を裏切り
背負った罪の花 後悔を散らして

kagayaku himawari ga sashishimesu michi
mite minu furi o shita ano hi no watashi
unmei ni somuite kimi o uragiri
seotta tsumi no hana koukai o chirashite

A path was indicated by the shining sunflowers.
That day, I saw it but pretended I couldn’t see it.
I go against fate and betray you.
The flowers of my sin scatter regret.

花びら ひらひらと
風に舞って
そのまま 仄暗い闇の空へ
さよならも言わずに
堕ちるように
静かにこの世から消えていく

hanabira hira hira to
kaze ni matte
sono mama honokurai yami no sora e
sayonara mo iwazu ni
ochiru you ni
shizuka ni kono yo kara kiete iku

The petals flutter
and dance in the wind.
Like that, they head to the gloomy dark sky.
Without saying goodbye
and as if they’re descending,
They silently vanish from this world.

幼かった私は臆病すぎて
間違いを認められないでいた

osanakatta watashi wa okubyou sugite
machigai o mitomerarenai de ita

When I was young, I was too timid.
I couldn’t acknowledge my mistakes.

輝く向日葵が 指し示す道
ただそっと見つめる 渇ききった午後
引き裂いた約束 君を傷付け
背負った罪の花 いつまでも枯れずに咲いて

kagayaku himawari ga sashishimesu michi
tada sotto mitsumeru kawaki kitta gogo
hikisaita yakusoku kimi o kizutsuke
seotta tsumi no hana itsu made mo karezu ni saite

A path was indicated by the shining sunflowers.
I just stared silently at it during a parched afternoon.
Our promise was broken: I wounded you.
The flowers of my sin will bloom forever.

輝く向日葵が 指し示す道
ただそっと見つめる 渇ききった午後
引き裂いた約束 君を傷付け
背負った罪の花 いつまでも枯れずに咲いて

kagayaku himawari ga sashishimesu michi
tada sotto mitsumeru kawaki kitta gogo
hikisaita yakusoku kimi o kizutsuke
seotta tsumi no hana itsu made mo karezu ni saite

A path was indicated by the shining sunflowers.
I just stared silently at it during a parched afternoon.
Our promise was broken: I wounded you.
The flowers of my sin will bloom forever.

唄いたかった 君の唄を 聴かせたかった この曲も
PIANOから鳴る 音色はどれも切ない色

utaitakatta kimi no uta o kikasetakatta kono kyoku mo
PIANO kara naru neiro wa dore mo setsunai iro

I wanted to sing your sing, and I wanted you to hear my song.
The notes ringing out from the piano sounded heartrending.

確かにあった 君との時間 果たせなかった 約束も
振りほどいて 君はあの夢へと消えてゆく

tashika ni atta kimi to no jikan hatasenakatta yakusoku mo
furihodoite kimi wa ano yume e to kiete yuku

The time I spent with you definitely existed. You shake and untangle yourself
from it, and even the promises that weren’t kept. You fade into that dream.

夜の街を ひとり歩いて気付いたんだ
「やっぱり君がいないとダメだよ…」

yoru no machi o hitori aruite kidzuita nda
“yappari kimi ga inai to dame da yo…”

I was walking alone down the street at night when I realised:
“It’s no good when you’re not around, after all…”

時を越えて 生まれ変われるとしたら
「また一緒にいようね」

toki o koete umare kawareru to shitara
“mata issho ni iyou ne”

If I could cross over time and be reborn,
“I want to be with you again…”

このまま会えないのなら このまま消えてしまうなら
君と過ごした時間無駄にしないように

kono mama aenai no nara kono mama kiete shimau nara
kimi to sugoshita jikan muda ni shinai you ni

If we won’t meet again as things are now, if you will merely fade away as things are now,
Then I’ll try not to make the time we spent together be in vain.

ここからまた歩いてゆくよ 涙が止まらなくなっても
君と過ごした時間失くさないように

koko kara mata aruite yuku yo namida ga tomaranaku natte mo
kimi to sugoshita jikan nakusanai you ni

I’ll start walking again from now. Even if my tears won’t stop,
I’ll try not to lose the time I spent with you.

(走馬灯のように 思い出すのは 君がいた場所 君といた場所
あの交差点で 振り向いたまま 話せなかった 手を離したくなかった …終わりの雨…頬を伝うの)

(soumatou no you ni omoidasu no wa kimi ga ita basho kimi to ita basho
ano kousaten de furimuita mama hanasenakatta te o hanashitaku nakatta …owari no ame…hoho o tsutau no)

(I remember, with images flashing by like a spinning lantern, the places you were, and the places I was with you at.
At that intersection, I looked back and couldn’t say those words. I didn’t want to let go of your hand… The rain of farewell crawls down my cheeks.)

すれ違った 人混みの中 気付いたら探している 君の背中 君の温もり

surechigatta hitogomi no naka kidzuitara sagashite iru kimi no senaka kimi no nukumori

Before I knew it, I was searching for a glimpse of your back, and for your warmth, in the crowd I passed by.

どうして?…瞳には見えないのに
どうして?…どうして?
この恋はまだ今でも…胸の中で傷むの?

doushite? …me ni wa mienai noni
doushite? …doushite?
kono koi wa mada ima demo…mune no naka de itamu no?

Why? Even though it’s invisible…
Why? Why?
Why does my love, even now, ache inside my heart?

夜の街を ひとり歩いて気付いたんだ
「やっぱり君がいないとダメだよ…」

yoru no machi o hitori aruite kidzuita nda
“yappari kimi ga inai to dame da yo…”

I was walking alone down the street at night when I realised:
“It’s no good when you’re not around, after all…”

時を越えて 生まれ変われるとしたら
「また一緒にいようね」

toki o koete umare kawareru to shitara

If I could cross over time and be reborn,
“I want to be with you again…”

このまま会えないのなら このまま消えてしまうなら
君と過ごした時間無駄にしないように

kono mama aenai no nara kono mama kiete shimau nara

If we won’t meet again as things are now, if you will merely fade away as things are now,
Then I’ll try not to make the time we spent together be in vain.

ここからまた歩いてゆくよ 涙が止まらなくなっても
君と過ごした時間失くさないように
(feeling your song)

koko kara mata aruite yuku yo namida ga tomaranaku natte mo
kimi to sugoshita jikan nakusanai you ni
(feeling your song)

I’ll start walking again from now. Even if my tears won’t stop,
I’ll try not to lose the time I spent with you.
(Feeling your song.)

少し擦れてる声も 優し過ぎたあの笑顔も
君の全てに今光りが射すように

sukoshi kasureteru koe mo yasashi sugita ano egao mo
kimi no subete ni ima hikari ga sasu you ni

I hope that everything about you, including your slightly husky voice
and your too-kind smile, is now illuminated.

まだこの世界に 君はいるんだからね
歩き続けなきゃ ほら目の前のDOORを開けて!

mada kono sekai ni kimi wa iru nda kara ne
aruiki tsudzukenakya hora me no mae no DOOR o akete!

After all, you’re still here in this world.
I have to keep walking. See? I’ll open the door right in front of me!

Requested by: Kaleival

I originally translated the title as ‘Eternity Logic’, but after comparing it to other tracks on the album, I think it’s more appropriate to interpret 悠久 as an adjective.


手と手つないだ二人
途切れ途切れの命
“これが私達の関係性”
形は失くせていくけど

te to te tsunaida futari
togire togire no inochi
“kore ga watashi-tachi no kankeisei”
katachi wa nakusete iku kedo

We held hands
yet our lives were disconnected.
“This is our relationship.”
Still, we’re losing our forms.

どこまでいけばいい
いつまで生きていればいい
騙し騙しの生も もう飽いた
「いっそ殺してくれ」と

doko made ikeba ii
itsu made ikite ireba ii
damashi damashi no sei mo mou aita
“isso koroshite kure” to

How far should I go?
How long should I live?
I’m tired of this deceptive life.
“I’d rather you kill me.”

麻薬を脳にぶちこむあの感覚も
麻痺すれば快楽もない
死んだ生物だな

mayaku o nou ni buchikomu ano kankaku mo
mahi sureba kairaku mo nai
shinda seibutsu da na

That feeling—narcotics slamming into my brain—
If I numb it, I will gain no pleasure.
I must be a dead creature.

怯えることをやめ
明日を望む少女達に
贐の言葉を送ろう

obieru koto o yame
ashita o nozomu shoujo-tachi ni
hanamuke no kotoba o okurou

I will leave some parting words
to the maidens who gave up on fear
and now wish for tomorrow.

明けぬ夜を求め
走る君を目で追ってる
浅い夢を見てる間は
生きていられるから

akenu yoru o motome
hashiru kimi o me de otteru
asai yume o miteru ma wa
ikite irareru kara

I chase you with my eyes
as you pursue a never-ending night
because I can live
while dreaming shallow dreams.

“いつか壊れてしまうなら
共に私もいこう”
生きた死者になる

“itsuka kowarete shimau nara
tomo ni watashi mo ikou”
ikita shisha ni naru

“If you will someday die,
Then I will die with you.”
I will become the casualty who lived.

怯えを糧にして
明日を望む少女達に
ただ少し祈りを捧げよう

obie o kate ni shite
ashita o nozomu shoujo-tachi ni
tada sukoshi inori o sasageyou

I will offer some small prayers
to the maidens who use fear as their energy
and now wish for tomorrow.

明くる日に焼かれた
君はきっと泣いているだろう
深い夢は覚めて
ここから息を始めようか

akaruku hi ni yakareta

You were burned by the bright sun.
You must be crying.
I awaken from a deep dream.
Shall I start breathing now?

I wanted support you

If I start now, will I make it in time?

I don’t want to regret it. Now, and afterwards,
I want to love you. I feel something for you.
I can’t tell you that through just my overflowing thoughts alone.
I’ll race off. I’m going to meet you! I’m in love with you.

悲しい事も笑って誤魔化す
ココロが泣いているの

​kanashii koto mo waratte gomakasu

Even when you’re sad, you laugh and cover it up.
Your heart is weeping.

Original Theme: Beware the Umbrella Left There Forever [万年置き傘にご注意を]

Requested by: Kaleival

ギブス itself refers to a plaster cast. But it could also be the word ‘gives’ written out in katakana. The song itself feels like Kogasa is pining for a former owner…


咲いた花も散り
心結わう四季に合わせて
浮かび消えていくの

saita hana mo chiri
kokoro yuwau shiki ni awasete
ukabi kiete iku no

The flowers scatter, too.
Facing the four seasons that bind my heart,
They float and will fade away…

あたしの奥の方に眠ってる
そっとそう問いかけてみて
ほんとうは何が欲しい?
あなたの影に映り消えていくの
忘れられてもいいの
ほんとうは寂しいの

atashi no oku no hou ni nemutteru
sotto sou toi kakete mite
hontou wa nani ga hoshii?
anata no kage ni utsuri kiete iku no
wasureraretemo ii no
hontou wa sabishii no

Something sleeps inside me.
I gently try to ask it a question—
What do I really want?
It will match with your shadow and fade away
I’m fine if I’m forgotten.
To be honest, I’m lonely.

撫でて、触れて

nadete, furete

Stroke me, touch me.


握りしめた手
解きはしないと

春の風さらわれて
こわくてこわくて
目を背けてた
複雑でも手を伸ばして

nigirishimeta te
hodoki wa shinai to
demo
haru no kaze sarawarete
kowakute kowakute
me o somuketeta
fukuzatsu demo te o nobashite

I believed the hands that grabbed me
would never let go.
But
I am swept away by the spring breeze.
I’m scared, so scared.
I looked away.
Though things are complicated, I reach out a hand.

『大切』は時が経ち薄れてく
ずっとそう変わらずなんて
難しいものねと
『大切』はやがて廃れ壊れてく
修理も追いつかぬまま
記憶に沈んで

“taisetsu” wa toki ga tachi usureteku
zutto sou kawarazu nante
muzukashii mono ne to
“taisetsu” wa yagate sutare kowareteku
shuuri mo oitsukanu mama
kioku ni shizunde

“Something important” fades as time passes.
But, I think it’s hard for things
to stay the same forever.
“Something important” will eventually crumble away.
Repairs won’t catch up,
And it will sink into my memories.

繋げ、保て

tsunage, tamote

Fasten, and endure…

噛み締めて
血が滲んだりしてても
きっと
冬の夜隠してしまう
さむくてさむくて
いま動けない
痛みの中手を伸ばして

kamishimete

fuyu no yo kakushite shimau

I think deeply.
Even if my blood runs forth,
I will surely
hide in a winter’s night.
It’s cold, so cold
and I can’t move now.
Through this pain, I will reach out my hand.

傍観者の特徴すら
ないような顔で
誰でもいいわけじゃないから
受け入れても拒んだりして
最後に欲しいあなたの温度
いっそ枯れてよ

boukansha no tokuchou sura
nai you na kao de
dare demo ii wake ja nai kara
ukeiretemo kobandari shite
saigo ni hoshii anata no ondo
isso karete yo

Their face lacked even the characteristics
of the onlookers.
I’m not fine with just anyone,
So even if I’m accepted, I will reject them.
In the end, I want your warmth.
I’d rather wither away.

きっと…

願いごとが一つ ねぇ…叶うとしたら
きっと私はこんなことを思うのでしょう

negaigoto ga hitotsu ne… kanau to shitara
kitto watashi wa konna koto o omou no deshou

If one of my wishes could come true,
Then I guess I’d have to think of something like this:

どこまでも続く広い草原 両手広げ走る
太陽が笑いかけ 風と花が躍るの
そんな世界 夢見て

doko made mo tsudzuku hiroi sougen ryoute hiroge hashiru
taiyou ga warai kake kaze to hana ga odoru no
sonna sekai yume mite

The wide prairie stretches out all around me. I run with hands outstretched.
The sun is smiling, and the wind and flowers are dancing.
I dream of such a world.

誰も知らない…
Ah本当の私の臆病な瞳
この声が枯れるまで叫ぼうと
何もいらない…
ただ私らしくいる それだけでいいのに
どこかでこの想い分かち合えるなら
涙の訳を話そう

dare mo shiranai…
Ah hontou no watashi no okubyou na hitomi
kono koe ga kareru made sakebou to
nani mo iranai…
tada watashi rashiku iru sore dake de ii noni
dokoka de kono omoi wakachi aeru nara
namida no wake o hanasou

Nobody knows…
Ah. The eyes of my real self are so cowardly.
I try to scream until I lose my voice.
I don’t need anything…
I just want to live as I am. That’s enough, but
if I can share my feelings somewhere
then I might explain these tears of mine.

願いごとが一つ ねぇ…叶うとしたら
きっと私はこんなことを思うのでしょう

negaigoto ga hitotsu ne… kanau to shitara
kitto watashi wa konna koto o omou no deshou

If one of my wishes could come true,
Then I guess I’d have to think of something like this:

開かれた扉の向こう側で数えきれない人に囲まれ
手を繋ぎステップを踏み躍るの
そんな世界 夢みて

hirakareta tobira no mukou-gawa de kazoe kirenai hito ni kakomare
te o tsunagi suteppu o fumi odoru no
sonna sekai yume mite

Beyond the opened door, I am surrounded by countless people.
We link hands and dance together.
I dream of such a world.

誰も見えない…
Ah触れたいだけなのにここで独りきり
この翼 はためかせ飛ぼうとも
何もできない…
狭い鳥かごのなかで ただ空を描く
どこかでこの想い分かち合えたなら
遠くの星に祈った

dare mo mienai…
Ah furetai dake nanoni koko de hitori kiri
kono tsubasa hatamekase tobou to mo
nani mo dekinai…
semai torikago no naka de tada sora o egaku
dokoka de kono omoi wakachi aeta nara
tooku no hoshi ni inotta

Nobody can see…
Ah. I just want to touch someone, but I’m all alone here,
Though I try to flap my wings and fly.
I can’t do anything…
Within this cramped birdcage, I just imagine the sky.
I wished upon a distant star so I could share my feelings
with someone, somewhere…

誰も知らない…
Ah本当の私の臆病な心
この声が枯れるまで叫ぼうと
何もいらない…
まだ受け入れられない運命を背負う
どこかでこの想い分かち合えるなら
夢の続きを語ろう

dare mo shiranai…
Ah hontou no watashi no okubyou na kokoro
kono koe ga kareru made sakebou to
nani mo iranai…
mada ukeirerarenai unmei o seou
dokoka de kono omoi wakachi aeru nara
yume no tsudzuki o katarou

Nobody knows…
Ah. The heart of my real self is so cowardly.
I try to scream until I lose my voice.
I don’t need anything…
I bear a fate I still cannot accept.
If I can share my feelings somewhere
then I might speak about how my dream continues…

I looked up

Tomorrow will never come.

Your voice remains in my heart
and I remain here, powerless.
Nobody knows about the small dream I harbour
And my wounds subside.

覆われた雲に 全て投げ出した
桜色の浅瀬を泳いで
信じてたものが 信じなれなくて
儚く散る姿しか見えず

owareta kumo ni subete nagedashita
sakura-iro no asase o oyoide
shinjiteta mono ga shinji narenakute
hakanaku chiru sugata shika miezu

I abandoned everything to the clouds that covered me
and swim in the cherry blossom-coloured shoals.
I can no longer believe in what I believed in
and all I can see are figures, falling in vain.

零れてく涙 染み渡る波紋
花びら舞う浅瀬を泳いで
視界を遮る 鮮やかな影に
今は何も紡げないままで

koboreteku namida shimiwataru hamon
hanabira mau asase o oyoide
shikai o saegiru azayaka na kage ni
ima wa nani mo tsumugenai mama de

My tears fall, and ripples spread along the water.
I swim in the shoals where petals dance.
While shadows block my vision
I can’t speak a single word.

あなたによいユメを. . .

I’ll give you good dreams…

逃げ出した場所は 音もない世界
桜色の浅瀬を泳いで
移りゆく景色 憶うまま流れ
泡沫から生まれ消えてゆく

nigedashita basho wa oto mo nai sekai
sakura-iro no asase o oyoide
utsuri yuku keshiki omou mama nagare
utakata kara umare kiete yuku

The place I ran away to is a soundless world.
I swim in the cherry blossom-coloured shoals.
The ever-changing landscape flows freely
born from bubbles on the surface, then fading away…

お願いもう一度 願い叶うなら
花びら舞う浅瀬を泳いで
見つけた未来は いつまでも傍に
たとえそれが夢幻だとしても

onegai mou ichido negai kanau nara
hanabira mau asase o oyoide
mitsuketa mirai wa itsu made mo soba ni
tatoe sore ga mugen da to shite mo

Please, once more. If my dream is granted…
I will swim in the shoals where petals dance.
The future I found is always by my side
even if it’s just a dream.

乗り遅れないで 急いで
動き出したらもう 誰にも
止められない事 あなたが
一番わかってるはずでしょう

nori okurenaide isoide
ugoki dashitara mou dare ni mo
tomerarenai koto anata ga
ichiban wakatteru hazu deshou

Don’t miss it—hurry up!
Once it’s been put in motion,
Nobody can stop it.
You should have known that more than anyone.

走りだした 当てなき旅路
目的地なら 地の果てへでも
薄暗い中 心許ない
小さな灯り チカチカと点滅

hashiri dashita ate naki tabiji
mokutekichi nara chi no hate e demo
usugurai naka kokoromotonai
chiisana akari chika chika to tenmetsu

The train raced off on an aimless journey
though its destination may be the edge of the world.
I feel anxious in the gloom.
My small light flickers on and off.

揺れる世界 窓に映った
宙ぶらりんな 私の心
躓くように 伝う衝動
見えない傷が チクチクと痛んだ

yureru sekai mado ni utsutta
chuuburarin na watashi no kokoro
tsumazuku you ni tsutau shoudou
mienai kizu ga chiku chiku to itanda

A wavering world was reflected on my window.
My heart dangles in midair.
Urges stumbled down me—
My invisible scars were prickling, hurting me.

握りしめていた 小さな切符は
どうして どうして ゴールが掻き消されてるの
誰が望んだの 神々の遊び
怠惰な 態度で レールが延びていく限り

nigiri shimete ita chiisana kippu wa
doushite doushite gooru ga kakikesareteru no
dare ga nozonda no kamigami no asobi
taida na taido de reeru ga nobite iku kagiri

I grasped a small ticket.
Why, why was my goal erased?
Who wished for it? It’s a game of the gods,
As long as the rails stretch out, lazily…

辿り着くはずの 時は過ぎたのに
どうして どうして ゴールが遠のいて行くの
夢が夢のまま 触れないのなら
いつまでも覚めない

tadori tsuku hazu no toki wa sugita noni
doushite doushite gooru ga tounoite iku no
yume ga yume no mama sawarenai no nara
itsu made mo samenai

The time when I was supposed to arrive has long since past
So why, why does my goal grow more distant?
If my dreams remain dreams, and I cannot touch them,
Then I will never wake up.

軋む音響く 座席は
誰もが望んでる 居場所で
唇を結び 見据えて
ひたすら進むべき 方向へ

kishimu oto hibiku zaseki wa
daremo ga nozonderu ibasho de
kuchibiru wo musubi misuete
hitasura susumu beki houkou e

Creaking sounds resound from my seat
at a place everyone wishes for.
Pursing my lips, I gaze
in the direction I must advance down.

走り続け 飽きもしないで
光を求め 突き進むのみ
忘れかけてた この旅の意味
危険信号 チ力チ力と点滅

hashiri tsudzuke aki mo shinaide
hikari wo motome tsuki susumu nomi
wasurekaketeta kono tabi no imi
kiken shingou chika chika to tenmetsu

I keep running without getting sick of it.
I’ll just push on, seeking light.
I had almost forgotten the meaning of this journey.
The danger signals are blinking…

揺れる視界 目を伏せるけど
見えるのはただ 握りしめた手
続くトンネル 悲鳴のような
耳鳴りが今 チクチクと痛んだ

yureru shikai me o fuseru kedo
mieru no wa tada nigiri shimeta te
tsudzuku tonneru imei no you na
miminari ga ima chiku chiku to itanda

My vision wavers. I cast down my eyes.
All I could see was the hand I grasped.
The tunnel continues. The ringing in my ears
is like a shriek. It prickles, hurting me.

握りしめていた 小さな切符は
どうして どうして ゴールが掻き消されてるの
誰が望んだの 神々の遊び
怠惰な 態度で レールが延びていく限り

nigiri shimete ita chiisana kippu wa
doushite doushite gooru ga kakikesareteru no
dare ga nozonda no kamigami no asobi
taida na taido de reeru ga nobite iku kagiri

I grasped a small ticket.
Why, why was my goal erased?
Who wished for it? It’s a game of the gods,
As long as the rails stretch out, lazily…

辿り着くはずの 時は過ぎたのに
どうして どうして ゴールが遠のいて行くの
夢が夢のまま 触れないのなら
いつまでも覚めない

tadori tsuku hazu no toki wa sugita noni
doushite doushite gooru ga tounoite iku no
yume ga yume no mama sawarenai no nara
itsu made mo samenai

The time when I was supposed to arrive has long since past
So why, why does my goal grow more distant?
If my dreams remain dreams, and I cannot touch them,
Then I will never wake up.

I read through the first stanza or so and I immediately though “yep. These are kaztora lyrics.” His lyrics always pose unique challenges, but they’re really rewarding to read deeply and interpret.


The world is always back-to-front! Ah…

Society, after all, is a fantasy.
Fun and boredom have flown away.
During evening at the street corner,
The honest ones look like fools. Look!

On the 6th of June, I tell a lie.
Maybe it’ll return on the 9th of September.
Changeable, reversible… it’s karma
circling round the circumference.

I say it’s for her sake
(but it’s really for my own sake)
Change your viewpoint and it’s a grand turnabout!
The sound of cultural shift can be heard…

Ah… The whole world is back-to-front
so isn’t it good to try handstanding occasionally?
I’m sad when I’m having fun
and I laugh when times are tough. Ah ha ha!
Is justice always right?
Well, there’s no such thing as a ‘right’ thing.
Laugh off absurdity!
I’ve got a big mouth, and this is my small-scale resistance.

The April Fool dreams.
She’s a young maiden, ignorant of the world.
“Please dream…”
“Don’t dream!”
It’s always like this—double-dealing.

I hate her
(but really, I love her)
Is this really an inverted grand turnabout?
Ah…! Now I hate her!
Though the weather’s fine today, the waves are high.

Ah… The whole world is back-to-front
so isn’t it good to try overturning it all occasionally?
I smile when I’m sad
and I cry when I’m having fun. *sob sob*
Is justice always absolute?
Well, ‘absolute’ is probably just a play on words.
Laugh off absurdity!
I’ve got a big mouth, and this is my small-scale resistance.

Ah… both sides flicker and waver.
Though they get bewildered sometimes,
I guess the weak are just weak after all.
That’s a lie! What a funny story!
I’ll keep coming, no matter how many times it takes!
This is the fateful, complete reversal. Now…

One more time!
Ah… The world’s back-to-front-to-back.
I overturn it and it’s all linked again and again.
I’m sad when I’m having fun
and I laugh when times are tough. Ah ha ha!

Justice is always flawless
but there’s no such thing as something flawless.
The weak shall inherit!
Laugh off absurdity!
I’ve got a big mouth, and this is my small-scale resistance.

The world’s always back-to-front.
