アーキテクト // Architect

Sorry for the delay between this one and the last one. It’s true that I was a lot more busy than usual at work, but it is also true that I became a Nozomi fan in that LoveLiveSIF App.

モノばかりが満ち溢れている
からっぽで虚しい褪めた世界で
空を穿つコンクリートに囲われて
ヒトは生き続けている

mono bakari ga michiteafureteiru
karappo de munashii sameta sekai de
sora wo ugatsu concrete ni kakowarete
hito wa ikitsudzuketeiru

In this futile and faded world
Empty, but overflowing with -things-
Surrounded by concrete piercing the sky
Humanity lives on

ビルの中に見渡す限り並ぶ
止まったままのドール達が
ガラス越しに見せつけるファッションショーを
ただじっと眺めている

biru no naka ni miwatasu kagiri narabu
tomatta mama no doll-tachi ga
garasugoshi ni misetsukeru fashion show wo
tada jitto nagameteiru

Inside the buildings, as far as they eye can see
Dolls which have been laid to rest
Show off to me beyond the glass a fashion show
As I simply watch on

そう文明に負け
描かれた構造に身を任せて
明日を見失った残酷な未来

sou bunmei ni make
egakareta kouzou ni mi wo makasete
asu wo miushinatta zankoku na mirai

Yes, having lost to civilization
I entrust myself to this designed architecture
A cruel future that has lost sight of tomorrow

知らぬ誰かがプログラムした今を追って
ただひたすらに 自分を着飾るため求めるドレス
欲しいのは 自分を偽る術なのだろうかと
私もこの街にいるとつい惑わされる

shiranu dareka ga program shita ima wo otte
tada hitasura ni jibun’ wo kikazaru tame motomeru dress
hoshii no wa jibun’ wo itsuwaru sube nano darou ka to
watashi mo kono machi ni iru to tsui madowasareru

Racing along the present some unknown has programmed
I search in earnest for a dress in which to decorate myself
Wondering whether what I really want is to falsify myself
As long as I am in this city I find myself easily lost

上辺だけが便利にまとめられた
複雑多様化するルール
ただモラルはコンクリートに撃ち付いた
痕が教えてくれる

uwabe dake ga ben’ri ni matomerareta
fukuzatsutayouka suru rule
tada moral wa concrete ni uchitsuita
ato ga oshietekureru

Only on the surface has everything been made convenient
Governed by overcomplicated rules
But the scars left where morals were shot into the concrete
Still tell me

ああ文化が絶えたあの日から
巨視的な意味を以て
ヒトは何もかも失くしたのだろう

aa bun’ka ga taeta ano hi kara
kyoshiteki na imi wo motte
hito wa nani mo ka mo nakushita no darou

Ah, ever since the day culture died away
In a number of ways,
Humans lost everything they had

日頃見ている幻想とは違ったリアル
過ぎた後には 血と煙とオイルの匂いが残る
守るもの 貫く手段がどんなに非情だろうと
誰も咎められやしない そう誰にだって

higoro miteiru gensou to wa chigatta real
sugita ato ni wa chi to kemuri to oil no nioi ga nokoru
mamoru mono tsuranuku shudan’ ga don’na ni hijou darou to
dare mo togamerare ya shinai sou dare ni datte

A reality separate from the fantasy I see so often
When it has passed, the smell of blood and smoke and oil remain
If it’s to protect someone, no matter how heartless the method is
No one will put the blame on you, no one at all…

No one will put the blame on you, no one at all…
