Kanji Romaji English Translation
シェイドを突き拔け
強すぎる日差しが
真っ直ぐに伸びた道を歪める

コンクリ一トと白く濁った空の間で
積み上げてはまた壞して
灰だらけの世界で
僕らは未來へと步いてる

お腹を空かせて 小さく鳴いてる
瘦せた子貓をそっと抱き上げる

一つしかないこの星に
線を引くのは何故?
奪い去ってくのは 誰?

皮膚の色や形や生まれた場所で
命の重さが變わる
そんな事が許されるはずないだろう
でも 爭いはまだ續いてて
銃聲の音が屆かない場所でもやっぱり
赤い血は流れていく

積み上げてはまた壞して
灰だらけの世界で
僕らは未來へと步いてる
sheido wo tsukinuke
tsuyosugiru hizashi ga
massugu ni nobita michi wo yugameru

konkuriito to shiroku nigotta sora no aida de
tsumiagete wa mata kowashite
hai darake no sekai de
bokura wa mirai e to aruiteru

onaka wo sukasete chiisaku naiteru
yaseta koneko wo sotto dakiageru

hitotsu shika nai kono hoshi ni
sen wo hiku no wa naze?
ubaisatteku no wa dare?

hifu no iro ya katachi ya umareta basho de
inochi no omosa ga kawaru
sonna koto ga yurusareru hazu nai darou
demo arasoi wa mada tsuzuitete
juusei no oto ga todokanai basho de mo yappari
akai chi wa nagarete yuku

tsumiagete wa mata kowashite
hai darake no sekai de
bokura wa mirai e to aruiteru
Penetrating the shade,
the rays of sun are too strong,
bending the path that was straight ahead.

In the space between concrete and a white, muddied sky,
we stack things up only to demolish them again.
This world is full of ash,
as we walk towards the future.

A thin kitten releases a small cry
in hunger, as I gently hold him in my arms.

There’s only one of this earth.
Where do we draw the line?
Who will take us away from all this?

That the color of one’s skin, their shape, their birthplace,
all changes the weight of one’s life…
there is no way such a thing could be allowed.
But the fights still continue.
Even in places where the sounds of gunfire can’t reach,
red blood is being shed.

We stack things up only to demolish them again.
This world is full of ash,
as we walk towards the future.
