English Translation

Moratorium (1)

My stretched hand scratches the air,
the fuse shortened.
The friends I’m shoulder to shoulder with
are fewer.
Sharpening reality, I look for words
along with expectation and hope;
how many lyrics notebooks I kept writing?

Cloudy future, shed tears.
I blindly push my way through every day.
Moratorium has worn me out.
If it stopped, the hands of the clock
would go faster.

To the road I threw away,
I’m stretching my hand again,
looking for the continuation
of a dream story.
The melody that came out of my wounds,
I make it resound.

I got enough of lies and reality,
I close my eyes, wandering around;
how many times have I seen
this familiar starting point?

Cloudy future, shed tears.
I blindly push my way through every day.
Moratorium has worn me out.
If it stopped, the hands of the clock
would go faster.

To the road I threw away,
I’m stretching my hand again,
even if it’s foolish
to look for a dream story.
I tear up the borrowed theory
I was made to wear.
I aim to the other side
of a nonexistent destination.

To the road I threw away,
I’m stretching my hand again,
looking for the continuation
of a dream story.
The melody that came out of my wounds,
I make it resound.
I keep collecting fragments of dreams.

(1) – A moratorium is a temporary suspension of an activity
until issues regarding the activity have been resolved. [x]


Romaji

Moratorium

Nobashita te wa chuu wo kaite
mijikaku natta doukasen
Kata narabeta nakama mo sukunaku natteku
Mi wo kezutte sagasu kotoba ni
kitai to kibou no se
kakitsuzuketa ririkku nooto wa nan satsume?

Kumoru mirai nagasu namida
Yamikumo ni hibi wo kakiwake
Suruherashita moratorium
Tachidomareba tokei no hari wa hayaku natteku

Yaburi suteta michi no hatede
mata te nobashite
yumemonogatari no tsuzuki sagashiteru
Kizudarake de shiboridasu merodi hibikase
hosoi ito wo taguri kurai tsuiteku

Iya ni natta uso to riaru
Me wo tsumutte houkou tte
Mou minareta furidashi wa nan kaime?

Kumoru mirai nagasu namida
Yamikumo ni hibi wo kakiwake
Suruherashita moratorium
tachidomareba tokei no hari wa hayaku natteku

Yaburi suteta michi no hatede
mata te nobashite
yumemonogatari to baka ni sarete mo
Kiserareta karimono no seorii hikisaite
tohou mo nai kanata wo mezashiteiku

Yaburi suteta michi no hatede
mata te nobashite
yumemonogatari no tsuzuki sagashiteru
Kizudarake de shiboridasu merodi hibikase
hosoi ito wo taguri kurai tsuiteku
Yume no kakera atsumetsuzukeru

モラトリアム

伸ばした手は宙を掻いて
短くなった導火線
肩並べた仲間も少なくなってく

実を削って探す言葉に
期待と希望のせ
書き続けたリリックノートは何冊目?

曇る未来 流す涙
闇雲に日々をかき分け
擦り減らしたモラトリアム
立ち止まれば時計の針は早くなってく

破り捨てた道の果てでまた手伸ばして
夢物語の続き探してる
傷だらけで絞り出すメロディ響かせ
細い糸を手繰り喰らい付いてく

イヤになった嘘とリアル
目を瞑って彷徨って
もう見慣れた振り出しは何回目?

曇る未来流す涙
闇雲に日々をかき分け
すり減らしたモラトリアム
立ち止まれば時計の針は早くなってく

破り捨てた道の果てでまた手伸ばして
夢物語とバカにされても
着せられた借り物のセオリー引き裂いて
途方も無い彼方を目指していく

破り捨てた道の果てでまた手伸ばして
夢物語の続き探してる
傷だらけで絞り出すメロディ響かせ
細い糸を手繰り喰らい付いてく
夢のカケラ 集め続ける
