Lyrics & Music: Sharaku Kobayashi
Translation by Aka

ただくだらない事を思い描いて
暗い気持ちになり
また他愛ない言葉呟いてみては
振り出しに戻っている
.
tada kudaranai koto wo omoiegaite
kurai kimochi ni nari
mata tawainai kotoba tsubuyaite mite wa
furidashi ni modotte iru
.
Just imagining useless things
I get into a dark mood
Trying whispering foolish words again
is taking me back to the beginning 
.
ただ生きている事で何かを残して
いけるのだろうかと悩み
そして雑念を払い馬鹿になれるのなら
楽しい気持ちになるの?
.
tada ikite iru koto de nanika wo nokoshite
ikeru no darou ka to nayami
soshite zatsunen wo harai baka ni nareru no nara
tanoshii kimochi ni naru no?
.
Worrying about what I’d be leaving behind
if I were to just live
And if I become an idiot by wasting time with these idle thoughts,
will it feel like fun?
.
*無駄な言葉は全て省いて飛んでみせるよ +1
グランギニョってGO!!
全ての夜を笑い飛ばそう案外すぐだ +2
グランギニョってGO!!
.
*muda na kotoba wa zenbu habuite tonde miseru yo +1
GURANGINYOtte GO!!
subete no uso wo warai tobasou angai sugu da +2
GURANGINYOtte GO!!
.
*I’ll leave out all the pointless words
Do “grand guignol”, GO!!
+3
Laugh off all the lies, now suddenly
Do “grand guignol”, GO!! +3
.

+1: Written as “subete”, sang as “zenbu”
+2: Written as “yoru”, sang as “uso” – completely different words so I think it might be a typo in the booklet
+3: This is weird. Grand Guignol was a Parisian theatre which specialized in horror, and now refers to graphic horror works. It seems in Japanese the word has morph from a noun into a verb (like the word ‘Google’ has been morph into a verb “guguru” to mean ‘do an internet search’). I’m still researching this, but I think it means to do something in a horrible/outrageous way.
