From Ishifuro’s first album, Teenage Necra Pop! I tried to get the lines to match up with the video, so the line breaks might be a little awkward…


–TRANSLATION–
In a town to the west, Tennou-ji,
Not a soul was around
the blockaded station.
Nobody really knows why,
but one day, it got fenced up.
It’s so inconvenient.

There’s a lot of rumors about it,
but one of them in particular
stood out to a girl.
That girl’s name was “Tadokoro Kirai.”
Since her name was so unusual,

she didn’t have a single friend. So she was bored.
She went to the station
to see with her own eyes
if a dragon was really there or not!

She wanted to believe
that past the East Japan Railway turnstiles,
there was something special there
that could take her boring life,
her disgusting self,
her everything,
and destroy it all for her.

Before long, she spotted the huge dragon,
but it wasn’t really what she expected.
Kind of like it had no spirit, or rather,
to put it frankly,
it was a disappointment.

Though she didn’t say it out loud, it looked like the dragon knew.
It could probably guess
what she felt, after all.
Now, if you told her that dragons were brash and bold,
she’d probably just laugh at you.

“But, still,
I’m jealous of you.
Because you dragons are special,”
so she said.

But the dragon replied,
“Really?”
And then it muttered again,
“Really…”

“It’s hard for me to say
that the life I live is interesting,
but it’s still important in the end,”
the dragon grumbled to itself.
And so the girl asked,

“Why are you living here?
We can’t use the station, so it’s a bit of a bother.”
There was silence for a few moments, and then the dragon said,

“…Was I in the way…? (sweatdrop),” with an awkward expression.

西の町、天王寺
駅はもう封鎖されて
誰もいない
何故なのかは誰も知らないんだ
ある日突然柵ができてしまう
不便だよな

噂はいろいろさ
けれどもそのひとつに
女の子は目を付けた
彼女の名前は「田所キライ」
DQN ネームのせいで友だちが

ひとりもいないから暇なんだ
嘘の真偽を確かめよう
駅には本当に
竜がいるのか

つまらない毎日
くだらない自分
そんな全部全部を
壊してくれる
特別なものが
JR 改札抜けたらそこに
あると信じて

あっけなく見つかる巨大な竜の姿
けれどそれは思ったよりも
覇気がないというか
ぶっちゃけて言うなら
期待はずれなわけでした

そんなこと言われても 知ったこっちゃないよ
気持ちは察するけど
仕方ないよね
ふてぶてしい態度の 竜がそう言うと
何だか少し 笑えてきたな

でもさ やっぱり
君が羨ましい
だって竜はさ
特別だよ

って言うと君は
「そうかな?」
って言ったあとにもう一度
「そうかな・・・」ってつぶやいた

僕が生きた毎日
面白いとは言い難いけれど
それでもやっぱり大事なんだよな
そんな独り言を竜がぼやくから
訊ねてみた

君はなんでさ、ここを占拠するの?
駅が使えなくて困ってるんだけど
少しの沈黙、そして竜は答えた

「・・・俺、邪魔だったの・・・?(汗)」 気まずい顔で
