The building blocks were collapsing
A collision into the stagnant atmosphere
In the street it’s a noisy alarm
Plugging up my ears, my voice goes to even that far

The still unchanging night
In a world which doesn’t open
“Answer me, I’m here”
Zero-radio receiver
Someone is receiving

“I can hear it”
Your sound
“It reaches me”
Your voice
“Not even knowing their name
Someone I can’t see,” To you
Well, I too am the same as you

The trash can of the impression’s sky
Lack of trial and error
The grey building’s birdcage
Sitting, holding my knees, I completely reject “isolation”

The clock with a dead battery
“It wasn’t expected to be like this
I can still move; I can still walk”
Built-in determination
The (clock’s) needle starts to move

“Can you hear it?”
My sound
“Does it reach you?”
My voice
Fragile like this
Too weak, it’s me, but
If there’s someone waiting for me, then,
Surely

“I can hear it”
Your sound
“It reaches me”
Your voice
“Not even knowing their name
Someone I can’t see,” To you
Because I too am the same as you…
