Dizziness was happy to visit me
During my 23rd spring…

Why was I selected?
And don’t make me have high hopes about our conversations
It’s everything that you’ve said, right!?

If we can go back to being “the two of us”
Will you love me?

From my two hands, tired from cradling
Your thin neck… I have not let go

So,Keep on following to fate
With a person?
 With a hate?

Hey… Is that some kind of roadshow?

“Are you happy?”

COUGH UP…
Dear,My bold fat baby
Creeping into the bath
A day,Lead your debt

If only you weren’t here
Nothing would have been taken from me…

わらべうた (Warabeuta)

“A Children’s Folk Song”

The lapping in and out, I don’t know how many scents I’m breathing in from the waves
Dying down with my longings, clad in daybreak
The cup that it was triumphantly poured into is distorted
Flames lead the enduring symbol astray

Go along, go along
This narrow path invites only those who have the heart of a snake
In and out, restlessly

Kagome Kagome*
Avoid the path of snake fangs that leak poison
Who will be my opponent this night?

Over here, Mr. Demon, towards the sound of my hands.
Over here, Mr. Demon… People who do not give names to their feelings

Ahh, no matter how many times we cross paths, there is a drizzle upon my swaying face

This children’s folk son, with a nostalgic air
Revives my dead smile, and days where I was too young to remember now
A lullaby in an unheard evening
Crying in the middle of the night, just like a colicky baby
Please hold me and soothe me with your voice

*Kagome Kagome is a children’s game in Japan, similar to Marco Polo or Blind Man’s Bluff. According to Wiktionary: the one in the middle is the demon, or ‘It’. The demon has to keep their eyes covered while the others sing or chant and circle around him. When they stop, the demon has to guess who is sitting behind them.
**AN: This song contained a lot of lyrics from Japanese folk songs and nursery rhymes, written in older Japanese

I put it away softly, so as not to break it
The warmth of that innocent vow faintly remains

I’m continuing to  paint a selfish picture of the future
When this dream became lively, it felt as though I had a wonderful encounter

Embraced by the chimes of blessings, you only smiled a little bit
More so than any other smile I had seen
Yours always had the most tenderness
──I couldn’t look away

Decorated with bluffs, you cannot really call it “Love”
I keep repeating it, because I am still foolish

Today too, time alone does not stop moving, leaving me behind
A mature person like you surely doesn’t wish for dreams

Crunching the fluttering, falling dry leaves, at least I walked without bowing my head
Because my chest is already hollow, it echoes, frightfully beautifully

No matter how many times I lost my way, I could not forget
No matter how many times I lost my way… I liked you
That “You will be happy” is a wonderful thing, but
I am weak, I cannot say “Congratulations” or “Goodbye”

Embraced by the chimes of blessings, you only smiled a little bit
More so than any other smile I had seen
Yours was not really the most “Beautiful” … but

Turning a promise into a kiss that is for eternity
I will hope, and put the happiness of two people into this song
───Even if it becomes a song sung in a teary voice

口笛ダイアリー (Kuchibue Diary)

“Whistle Diary”

I blurted out something like “Is there someone you like right now?”
Because I wanted to put an end to the rumor that you liked him

From when I open my eyes in the morning until I start dreaming, all day and all night
My head is so full of “you” that there is no room left for anything else anymore

“It would be great if we could meet in my dream…” ← My wishes are too submissive
My one miscalculation was that… Even in my dreams, I can’t say it oh my lips

I’ll carry you away, whistling and pedaling away
When I think that day will come, I’ll imitate your pursed lips

This pain will certainly go away if I hold you until “zero”
Because it is proof of my feelings, losing you is also scary to me…

I tried to look cool, but even running away makes me uncomfortable
My one worry is that…  There is a pain that I do not know, that has not reached me oh myself

Distracting myself by whistling, my heart races in the five minutes before we are supposed to meet
My trembling lips repeat the single sentence “I like you”

I’ll carry you away, whistling and pedaling away
Days such as that have passed by, with him from a long time ago

I’ll whistle while I go back, because the sky is so pretty
I clenched my lips shut and began pedaling “So that tomorrow will be sunny too”

Flashback…
Today also〈+・-〉A nonsensical location
“What do you want?”  It’s not like that!
Attention,please!!

Music-1 It’s a song of sweet love
Music-2 It’s a song of bright future
Music-3 It’s a song of smile and peace
Music-4 is…×××

Starvation Masturbation
Try to imagine it, try to feel it?
Whenever we touch, I feel like I’m going to drown

Burst up…

―Illusory faith ―
―Hypnotism and Adoration ―
―Paying homage to a puppet ―

“Who is this song for?”

Sharpen it, pierce it more
The only thing that you have given me is pain, right?
If you’ll give it to me, hit me in the chest with a love like being torn apart

Sharpen it, pierce it more
This isn’t the kind of song that you would hope for, but
“I’ll save you”
If you cannot even see its value, and you lament…

No matter what way you are, it’s not wrong
So, at the tomorrow that I’m looking toward, will you accompany me a little?

If, for example, in 24 hours
The world was going to end, what would you do?

Now, even this ugly, dirty world
Now, even ironically, it becomes clear

ANOTHERFIRSTDAY…
ANOTHER
LASTDAY…
Our fingers are intertwined
And tears also flow

HOW LONG DOES IT ALL END?
I want to at least nestle close to you

If, for example, in 24 hours
The world was going to end, I’d still be here

“…With you”

Love Puppet Party

Frightfully white smoke emerges
Getting caught up in the inviting aroma, like being drawn along by a hand, I know It. -The threads of love-

Provocative red lips, it’s like being erased, even though my ears are plugged
The field of vision that I held  (Ah) Our bodies become charmed (Down)
It’s like setting a trap, ready

Long, glossy hair is a painted silhouette
Lacking, being suppressed, inviting instinctual outbursts

Dance in ecstasy, if you step in the way your hand goes, you cannot go back anymore
A shining mirror ball, drowning in the surrounding speed
Gently place your hand the way I want it, a familiar sequence, a sigh flows out
I still dream, an unimaginable fabrication, an aimlessly unfinished Puppet Party

Wet with tears, wicked eyes slowly glitter
As though time stops, a seemingly see-through kiss
Greedily touching your lips

Dance in ecstasy, if you step in the way your hand goes, you cannot go back anymore
A shining mirror ball, drowning in the surrounding speed

My sea of reasoning is being dyed, I’ll show you a dream which you won’t wake up from
A sweet invitation, drowning in a lovely addiction

Entwined fingers, the body heat that I feel, a deep pulse, an uneven heartbeat
I still dream, an unimaginable fabrication, an aimlessly unfinished Puppet Party
