Fighting the darkness 暗闇に生きる おまえの気持ちは知らない 暗闇と生きる 俺の気持ちおまえに分かる? 大なり小なり関係ねえ 誰しもが同じ関係で 常にソコで 心の底で 共存しようって笑ってるだろ Fighting the darkness 立ち止まっても走っても いつまでたっても距離は同じ あぁ どうせならいっそこのまま…思うのはこの先もその先も Fighting the darkness 眼中の闇 狂気の反映が思考を支配する 叩きのめされる精神 死に行く程に 汝は光を見るべからず Fighting the darkness... Fighting the darkness I don't know how you feel living in darkness Do you know how I feel to live with darkness wether it's great or less, does not matter Everyone's the same We all think deep in our minds, to happily exist together Fighting the darkness Stand still or run, distance won't change I might of just fuckin'... Will be in my mind forever and ever. Fighting the darkness Darkness inside my eyes, reflection of creeping insanity Dominated mind, beating my soul, beaten till it's death Thy shall no longer see the light Fighting the darkness…

The Neighbor おいっ おいっ おいっ と呼びかけても一向に返事しない 見向きもしない まるで他人?自分?と問いかけた数の吸い殻… Dear my darkest friends 穏やかな時も 波乱な時も 側に居たのはオマエだけ 全て想像力から産まれるなら オマエの事を何て現そう? Dear my darkest friends 遠からず近からず 歩み寄る事もさほど無く また明日 また会ったね お互いほんと苦労が絶えないね 自由って何だろうね?孤独って何?生きるって何? 問いかける相手はいつも暗闇の中 この暗闇の中 Dear my darkest friends The Neighbor Oi, Oi, Oi, no response to my call Won't even look Is it a stranger? or myself? bunch of cigarette buds after questioning Dear my darkest friends When in calm and when in confusion, you were the only one who stood beside me If everything is born from imagination, how should I describe you? Dear my darkest friends Not too far not too close, hardly ever meet in between See you tomorrow, oh it's you again. Problems never ends for both of us What is freedom? What is alone? What is living life? I always ask this question to this darkness, in darkness  Dear my darkest friends

Rot away ドサッと横たわる 全身の力が抜ける あぁ 要するにこれが命の重さってやつ? Rot away そっと目を閉じる 瞼の上にかすかな光り あぁ 要するにこれが天への光りってやつ? Rot away この世から消え去るとき どんな気分だろう? 何を思うだろう? 果てるんだよ どうあがいても 果てるんだよ  そっと胸に触れる 無言で脈打ち続ける鼓動 あぁ 要するに おまえが最後を看取るってやつ? Rot away Rot away Drop dead on floor, get a body downSo this is so called the weight of life? ROT AWAY As i close my eyes, i feel a feeble lightThis is so called light to heaven? ROT AWAY How would it feel, what would i think when i vanish from this world We all crash and burn No matter what We all burn Hand on my chest, beat goes on without a wordOh, so your telling me that you will be beside me when i die. ROT AWAY

Rebel without a cause Like there are nights I refuse for a shut eye,  there are nights I lie wakeful. Same fucking night More suppression, I rebel. More I rebel, more they suppress. Piece fell from my fist was once again had no meaning. I have so many things I want to say, but struggle to put it in words I have so many things I want to do, but struggle to do it I just wanna live to what i feel I just wanna do it that way Why the hell? why do i need a reason When I give, it's one fucking way as i reach for more freedom, it becomes far. i finally realized that I'm trying to balance my life. Sick of it all, crash on the floor then I see detested roach crawling on the wall Do you feel the same? you think so too? Please tell me I just wanna live to what i feel I just wanna do it that way Why the hell? why do i need a reason When I give, it's one fucking way Hey Hey I just wanna live to what i feel Rebel without a cause 眠りたくない夜があるように 眠れない夜がある 同じ夜なのに 抑圧されればされる程に 反抗的に 反抗的になればなる程に 抑圧される 握りしめた拳からこぼれ落ちたのは今日も無意味な意味だった 言いたい事は腐る程あるのに 上手く言葉にできない やりたい事は死ぬ程あるのに 上手くやれない 俺はただ感じるままに生きたいだけなんだ 俺はただそうしたいんだ 何故?どうして?どうして理由がいるんだ 与える時は一方的なのに… 自由を欲しがれば欲しがるほど 不自由になって 今更だけど気がついた  何だか色々な事にバランスをとって生きている自分に 何もかもが嫌になって 何もしたくなくなって 無気力に横たわると 天井を忌み嫌われるゴキブリが這っている オマエもやっぱりそうなのか? そう思うのか? 教えてくれよ 俺はただ感じるままに生きたいだけなんだ 俺はただそうしたいんだ 何故?どうして?どうして理由がいるんだ 与える時は一方的なのに… 俺はただ感じるままに生きたいだけなんだ

Stray dog 拝啓 まだ見ぬ明日 野良犬が残飯を漁るそれは 飼いならされた私達が生き甲斐を漁るそれに見えます この路地裏を抜けて 表通りに出れば その表通りから 路地裏に入れば 何が見えますか?何が変わりますか? 硬直 高揚 絶え間なく 放浪 往来の 日々です Stray dog Dear unknown tomorrow Stray dog scavenging garbage Reminiscent of tame human being scavenging for purpose to live Through the off street to the main street From main street to off street What can you see? What changes? Rigidity, Inflammation, eternally Roam, trafic day by day

Paperwife どうしても欲しい 満たしても絶えず欲しいのは何? いつからだろう 金をそんなふうに見だしたのは praise the papperwaifr 執着の果てに worship the papperwaifr 終着に果てる 気にしたくもねえのに気にせざるえないオマエ 今日も明日も明後日も 時給と言う名のオマエに会いに行く オマエの為に生きるよなんて… そんな人生くそっくらえ 同じだけの苦しみと 同じだけの喜びをくれる 紙切れ いつだって 毎日 毎日 愛憎ゆえに迷走 明日は我が身だなんて言う前に 愛想無しの名声 明日の我が身だなんて言う前に Paperwife What is it that you keep wanting despite the satisfaction When have I started to look at money(you) like this Praise the paperwife Ended up after obsession  Worship the paperwife Comes to an end I don't even wanna care about you but just can't help it Today, tomorrow and so on, I go to meet you so called wage Fuck living for you A piece of paper which can give you joy and suffering  All day everyday Losing track of myself from love and hate Before I say I could be the victim tomorrow Fame without a incense Before I say I could be the victim  tomorrow

Japanese nightmare Japanese nightmare ブラウン管の中に Japanese nightmare 暮らしの隙間に Japanese nightmare 紙幣の価値に Japanese nightmare 今宵の食卓に まあ何とかなるだろう これまでも何とかなっただろう どーせどうにもならないんだろう 憲法九条は美徳だろう あーだ こーだ 言う前に まず行動してから背中で見せろ おまえに俺に 言ってんだよ おまえに俺に 言ってんだろ 出会う前に ディスる前に でもって言う前に まず確かめてみようや 団塊の世代の落とし子の 一世一代の叫びを聞かせてくれ あ~いう奴等はまず その罪を擦り付けたがる そ~いう俺等もそう 我関せずと呟いてる Japanese nightmare Japanese nightmare inside the tube  Japanese nightmare between our lives Japanese nightmare in value of the paper Japanese nightmare on the dinner table It will sort it's self out, it did up until now It's not gonna do any better right? Article 9 on the constitution is just a virtue? Before you say shit Take it in action and  Saying to you and to me Saying to you and to me Let's check before you meet, diss or say but Fruit of the baby boomer Let me hear your scream of the lifetime They want to blame it on someone And us, we mutter not to be ego

I Fought the law ひとえにヤバイと言いますが君が感じた事を教えてほしい 何となくそれとなく心にすっと入り込んで 言葉にできない衝動に駆られた事はないかい? 時代にのっとり 流行にのっとり 自分に嘘つき ほらまたヤバイと言ってんじゃねえ? 誰と誰と誰が繋がってて 誰と誰がヤバイって言ってるから 段々良く思えてくる不思議  カスも良く思えてくる不思議 I Fought the law and the law won 表現は自由 感受性は宇宙 でもでっち上げのヒーローに皆夢中 笑い話?妬み話?なんでもいいが  オマエの本音ととりあえず変われ ひとえにヤバイと言いますが君が感じた事を教えてほしい 目に映る 胸に響く それ以外に何がある I Fought the law and the law won 常につきまとう 付加価値の自分 付加価値の価値 付加価値の批評 付加価値の街 付加価値の世界 付加価値の詩 付加価値の音 付加価値の愛 付加価値の金 膨れ上がる 付加価値の瘡蓋を毟る 剥がれ落ちる 瘡蓋の下に見えた付加価値 I Fought the law 不平 不満 知らず知らずに時代のせい I Fought the law 自分次第 血を流すのか流されるのか I Fought the law You say it's cool, but tell me know how you really felt Haven't you ever being provoked when something slips into your mind unconsciously? Ride the era and ride the trend. Fooling your self, jump on it and agin you say it's cool? Who knows who and who's saying what makes you think it's cool, what a fucking wonder. This fucking magic even shines the scums. I Fought the law and the low won Freedom of expresion, sensibility is an universe, but your busy praising your counterfeit hero A fucking joke? or a fucking envy? what the fuck ever, just change with your fucking truth You say it's cool, but tell me know how you really felt Catch your eyes, touch your heart, what else is there? Value added myself always be around Value of added value, value added criticism,  value added city, value added universe Value added poet, value added sound, value added love, value added money Claw the swollen scar tissue of  added value added value seen under the falling scar tissue (I fought the law) grief, rumble, because of the era (I fought the law) up to you, wether you bleed or be bled

My battle could be yours, Your battle could be mine My battle could be yours, Your battle could be mine 人前に出るのが苦手 やみくもにもがいて 人並みに生きよう 人並みに笑おうたってどこか他人事 話す事も 見る事も 食べる事も 触れる事も どこかまるで儀式の様な 魚のような目をした肉の塊が言う 命の価値は買えない けど命の価値は金に替えれる どうなってんだ Can you dig it? どうすんだ Can you dig it? あるがままさ Can you dig it? 綺麗事さ Can you dig it? 苦悩が満ちる 仏になろう きっと何かが変わるだろう 信教者の心境 矛盾を知り もう死のう… 愛すべき愚かな群れ さあ唄え Lala くそったれな世の中さ Lala Lala Lala Lala その暗闇を手放すな… My battle could be yours, Your battle could be mine My battle could be yours, Your battle could be mine Prone to stage fright, blindly suffering Try to live ordinary, try to laugh ordinary but seems like idle spectator To talk, to see, to eat, to feel all seems like a ritual A body of flesh with a dead fish eye says, you cannot buy a value of life, but you can change the value to cash What the fuck is happening, Can you dig it? What are you going to do, Can you dig it? It's what it is, Can you dig it? It's all gloss overing, Can you dig it? Let's become a grief buddha Something might change Find out the mind state of religious people then just bury me My loving hord of mindless, let's sing Lala This world is full of shit lala lala lala Don't let go of the darkness
