Hey, it’s been a while, yet again! I’ve been busy with… well, various things recently, and so I haven’t been translating much. I’m still a little busy, but I did this quick translation anyways, so why not share it?

–TRANSLATION–
On the walls of my room, I sketch my dreams
With the scent of broken crayons in the air
In my secret base that I created in a comic
I dreamt of a “what if?” world

Oh, I forgot to set my alarm
Morning and night just mingle together
From the garbled heap of letters and symbols
All I want is for someone to recognize my worth

And then, 1 year passed at my leisure
3 years dropped down like a stone
Casting out an unimpressive shadow

In this room, deprived of both the sun and moon
I stood still
And my pale face stiffined
As I danced a regrettable, strange dance

Trash and humor get mixed together like stew
I had to stand and face reality,
Swallowed my small jokes,
And praised a faint smile

An unringing phone, an unknown neighbor
A disregarded invitation, a judging angel
I want to see into everyone’s hearts
But, my heart itself is hidden

This is a rather common story, isn’t it?

Anxiety crossing over 6 years
And after that, 10 years that I can never get back
The time flying by struck me in the chest

The door to my room, deprived of both longings and the stars
Remains unopened
The words “how stupid,” gushed out of my mouth
And I proceeded to burn the crayons in my closet with a lighter

Into the darkness of dusk, ordinary hopes dissolved
And became dyed in inflating ostentations

I’ve become unable to breathe, shrouding my face with my hands, sprawled on the ground
And with that, time became annoyed, and sped up even more

I wonder if I’d know this all along?

50 years passed with me at its mercy
And at 100 years, I’d arrived at the end
Once I had forgotten my initial feelings
The door to my room, deprived of both the sun and moon
Swiftly opened up

On the other side of it, I met you again
You, from the dreams I sketched long ago
What kind of expression do you have now?

部屋の壁に理想描いて
折れたクレヨンの匂い嗅いだ
漫画で作った秘密基地で
Ifの世界を夢見ていた

アラームセット忘れちゃって
朝も夜もふざけあって
文字と記号の掃溜めから
他者承認を望んだり

そして のんびりしてて1年目
石から落ちて3年目
無感動の影が じわり じわり

太陽も月も消えたこの部屋で
立ち止まって
真っ白な顔 引きつって
悔しくて 変なダンスを踊る

ゴミとユーモア 寄せ鍋にして
現実に立ち向かおうとした
あんまりなジョークもちゃんと食べて
ギリギリの笑みを たたえていた

鳴らない電話 知らない隣人
いかれた勧誘 ジャージの天使
みんなの心を覗きたいな
でも 私の心は覗かせないのだ

よくある話ね

不安を越えて6年目
後に引けずに10年目
突き刺さるは 光陰矢の如し

憧れも星も消えた部屋のドアが
開かなくなって
馬鹿みたいって吹き出して
押入れのクレヨンを ライターで燃やす

一筋の期待は 黄昏の闇に溶け
水増しの虚飾に 染まる

息苦しくなって 顔を手で覆い 寝そべると
時間はうざがって さらに加速

知ったことかよ

なすがままに50年目
行き着く果ては100年目
最初の気持ちを忘れた頃に
太陽も月も消えた部屋のドアが
急に開いて

その向こう 再び逢った
昔 理想を描いた あなたは
どんな顔してる?
