Selector

People who talk too much make me skeptical.
It’s just a waste of time.
Should I have left?
Well, it’s not about being stupid,
you just can’t know before you get hurt.

Go on and ask yourself to dry your own heart.
It’s absolutely doable.
Why do we indulge in chasing
only ideals that can’t come true?
To let this link guide me,
I accepted the future.

Taking up a new topic after another,
I understood better the trend of society.
I just want to break it.
Just quickly stop talking about old tales
and maybe you can advance.

Look back and ask the judgment to yourself.
You may throw it all away.
Abandon the time that repeats itself,
speak the goodbye.
I had no idea it would have shown there,
the future I had refused.

If fate selects it, you have to visit that reality
And bring up the new backbeat.
Is your heart really satisfied?
Do you mean to tell me that? Ask your question.

You can select it.
Why do we indulge in chasing
only ideals that can’t come true?
To let this link guide me,
I accepted the future.

出来すぎた話なら疑い持って
時間がただ無駄に過ぎていくんだ
辞めとけば良かった?
どんな馬鹿にされても
傷付かなきゃ分からない事もあって

さあ自ら心の乾きへ問う
全部どうにかなるさ
何故叶わない理想だけを
夢中で追いかけて
繋がり導かれるように
未来を受け入れた

次々に新たな話題取り上げ
世間の動向に目を向けていたんだ
壊したいだけなんだ
もう昔話はさっさとやめにして
進み出せば

自ら振り返り裁きを請う
全部捨てちまえば
繰り返した時を置き去りに
別れを切り出して
分からずそこに示された
未来は拒否していた

運命がもしリアルに照らし選べば訪れ
And bring up the new backbeat
本当に心から満足してるのかと
Do you mean to tell me that 問い正せよ

選べるさ
何故叶わない理想だけを
夢中で追いかけて
繋がり導かれるように
未来を受け入れた
