n-buna – Monologue

Monologue – モノローグ

春を歩く。
街を歩く。河原を歩く。
並木を歩く。校舎裏を歩く。
空を歩く。砂漠を行く。森を往く。月を征く。

Haru o aruku.
Machi o aruku. Kawara o aruku.
Namiki o aruku. Kousha ura o aruku.
Sora o aruku. Sabaku o yuku. Mori o yuku. Tsuki o yuku.

I walk in the spring.
I walk through the town. I walk along the riverbank.
I walk along the line of trees. I walk behind the school building.
I walk in the sky. I go through the desert. I pass through the forest. I conquer the moon.

歩みを進めるたびにちらつく追憶は
まるで冬の残骸だ。
脳裏に焼きついたかつての幸せは、
言って見れば一雫の不幸せ。
心の片隅にまれで癌みたいに
こべり付いていて、
空いた穴からは日々涙が落ちる。

Ayumi o susumeru tabi ni chiratsuku kioku wa
marude fuyu no zangai da.
Nouri ni yakitsuita katsute no shiawase wa,
itte mireba itteki no fushiawase.
Kokoro no katasumi ni marude gan mitai ni
koberitsuite ite,
aita ana kara wa hibi namida ga ochiru.

As I continue to walk, memories flutter lightly down,
Just like the wreckage of winter.
My former happiness is burned into my mind,
But when I tried to talk about it, a drop of unhappiness fell in.
It’s sticking to a corner of my heart
Like a cancer,
And tears fall daily from the hole that it opened.

その垂れた数滴の着弾点、
東京都心の更に真ん中。
人生というやつだ。
そこで僕たちは旅をしている。

Sono tareta suuteki no chakudanten,
Toukyou-to kokoro no sara ni mannaka.
Jinsei to iu yatsu da.
Soko de boku-tachi wa tabi o shite iru.

The impact site for those many drops that fell
Was in the very center of the heart of Tokyo.
That’s what they call life.
We’re journeying there.

Notes:

These lyrics appear in the booklet but are not sung; the track has no vocals.
