朝が来てまた目が覚めた瞬間に僕はうんざりした
一人きり歩いてくには長過ぎる夢世界だから
.
asa ga kite mata me ga sameta shunkan ni boku wa unzari shita
hitori kiri aruiteku ni wa nagasugiru yume sekai dakara
.
In the moment when morning came and I opened my eyes again, I was sick of it
Because what I walked into by myself was a drawn-out dream world
.
*上を向いて歩こうとかそんな言葉じゃなくて
この世に存在する意味教えてくれませんか
.
*ue wo muite arukou to ka sonna kotoba janakute
kono yo ni sonzai suru imi oshietekuremasen ka
.
*“I’ll look up and walk on” aren’t the words
Won’t you teach me the meaning of my existence in this world?
.
**生きていくって何ですか?
死に向かうって意味ですか?
夜になって朝になって一人が心痛める
.
**ikiteiku tte nani desu ka?
shinimukau tte imi desu ka?
yoru ni natte asa ni natte hitori ga kokoro itameru
.
**What is it to “keep on living”?
Does it mean to face death?
Night comes, morning comes, loneliness pains my heart
.
***楽しそうって何ですか?
笑ってるって事ですか?
夜になって朝になって一人で今日も生きてるゴッコ
.
***tanoshisou tte nani desu ka?
waratteru tte koto desu ka?
yoru ni natte asa ni natte hitori de kyou mo ikiteru GOKKO
.
***What “looks like fun”?
Is it something to laugh at?
Night comes, morning comes, today again I play the living game alone
.
ひとしきり歩き疲れて座ったらもう立てなくなった
意識から消えかけていた傷はまだ血を流してるから
.
hitoshikiri arukitsukarete suwattara mou tatenakunatta
ishiki kara kiekaketeita kizu wa mada chi wo nagashiteru kara
.
When I got tired from a long walk and sat down, I couldn’t stand up again
Because blood still pours from the wound that was starting to disappear from my consciousness
.

良く解るって何ですか?
解ったフリじゃないですか?
夜になって朝になって一人で今日も生きてるゴッコ

yoku wakaru tte nani desu ka?
wakatta FURI janai desu ka?
yoru ni natte asa ni natte hitori de kyou mo ikiteru GOKKO

What do you “pretty much understand”?
Aren’t you pretending you understood?
Night comes, morning comes, today again I play the living game alone

 

+: ‘gokko’ is a game of make believe, as in ‘oni-gokko’ (lit. ogre game) which is the Japanese name for tag.
