school food punishment – Densha, Suberiochiru, Headphone

school food punishment, amp-reflection

According to the band, this was originally a song with a normal band sound, but then they had some fun with Eguchi’s new iPhone. The rattling keys (Hasuo’s) and the background voice (Uchimura’s “ooh”s and “la”s) were a few of the samples they recorded this way.

Train, Slip Down, Headphone
Lyrics: Uchimura Yumi
Composition: school food punishment
Arrangement: Eguchi Ryou

With a clatter, the train should be making a sound.
Falling in drops, the evening spills down.
While I capture that, I slip into my headphones.
The contours of reality blur a little bit.

The secrets in my bag turn into powder.
The movements were like the traits of the time after I took off the ring.
While I capture that, I slip into the waves of sound.
A little bit of the awkward reality found its way in.

Yesterday is caught in the down-train on line number 3.
“It would be nice if it was a dream,” I spit out countless times.
Before the doors close, check if you’ve forgotten anything.
Cutting off the outside world just like that, where shall I go?

Soon, the moon should be chasing me from behind.
Swaying side to side, the silhouettes lose their shapes.
No matter how long I’ve waited for you, I’ll just straddle the night.
I let thoughts of the time someday when I’ll drink it down escape from my head.

I’m repeatedly playing the three-minute last scene as I’m walking along.
Before I know it, yesterday becomes far away.
It seems like it’ll reach, but it just won’t. Within the game of catch with you,
How much of my feelings could I have thrown away, I wonder?

Yesterday is caught in the down-train on line number 3.
“It would be nice if it was a dream,” I spit out countless times.
Before the doors close, check if you’ve forgotten anything.
Your habits are deeply ingrained in me.

We, just being drenched in a rain of harsh words,
Can’t rewind with a farewell like the ones in the movies.
I’m sure it’ll quietly melt away as though nothing was ever there;
I’ll ride on back-to-back trains – goodbye.

Densha, Suberiochiru, Heddofon
Lyrics: Uchimura Yumi
Composition: school food punishment
Arrangement: Eguchi Ryou

Gatagata to densha wa  oto wo tatete iru hazu sa
Potapota to yuugure ga koboreochite yuku
Boku wa sore wo toraenagara  heddofon ni mogurikomu
Genjitsu no rinkaku ga  sukoshi boyaketeku

Konagona ni natteku  kaban no naka no himegoto
Yubiwa wo hazushita ato no  shuusei ni nita ugoki
Boku wa sore wo toraenagara  oto no nami ni mogurikomu
Kidzumari na genjitsu ga  sukoshi magireteta

Sanbansen no kudari densha ni  hikkakatte iru kinou
Yume nara ii tte nando mo hakidashita
Tobira ga shimaru sono mae ni  wasuremono ga nai ka tashikamete
Soto no sekai wo putsuri to kitte  doko e yukou?

Sorosoro boku no ushiro wo  tsuki ga oikakeru hazu sa
Yurayura to kageboushi ga katachi wo nakushiteku
Doredake kimi wo matta tte  yoru wo mataideku dake sa
Itsuka nomikomu sono toki wo  atama kara nigashite iru

Sanbunkan no rasuto shiin wo  ripiito saisei shite aruiteru
Itsu no ma ni ka kinou ga tooku naru
Todokisou de  mou todokanai  kimi no kyacchi booru no naka de
Doredake no omoi wo nagerareta ndarou?

Sanbansen no kudari densha ni  hikkakatte iru kinou
Yume nara ii tte nando mo hakidashita
Tobira ga shimaru sono mae ni  wasuremono ga nai ka tashikameru
Kimi no kuse ga boku ni shimitsuite iru

Sanzan na kotoba no ame ni  nurete iku dake no bokura
Eiga no you na wakare  makimodosenai
Kitto  sotto  tokete shimatte  nani mo nakatta mitai ni
Senaka awase no densha ni norikonde  sayonara

電車、滑り落ちる、ヘッドフォン
作詞 内村友美
作曲 school food punishment
編曲 江口亮

ガタガタと電車は 音を立てているはずさ
ポタポタと夕暮れがこぼれ落ちていく
僕はそれを捉えながら ヘッドフォンに潜り込む
現実の輪郭が 少しぼやけてく

粉々になってく カバンの中の秘め事
指輪をはずした後の 習性に似た動き
僕はそれを捉えながら 音の波に潜り込む
気詰まりな現実が 少し紛れてた

3番線の下り電車に 引っかかっている昨日
夢ならいいって何度も吐き出した
扉が閉まるその前に 忘れ物がないか確かめて
外の世界をぷつりと切って どこへいこう?

そろそろ僕の後ろを 月が追いかけるはずさ
ゆらゆらと影法師が形をなくしてく
どれだけ君を待ったって 夜をまたいでくだけさ
いつか飲み込むその時を 頭から逃がしている

3分間のラストシーンを リピート再生して歩いてる
いつの間にか昨日が遠くなる
届きそうで もう届かない 君とのキャッチボールの中で
どれだけの想いを投げられたんだろう?

3番線の下り電車に 引っかかっている昨日
夢ならいいって何度も吐き出した
扉が閉まるその前に 忘れ物がないか確かめる
君のクセが僕に染み付いている

散々な言葉の雨に 濡れていくだけの僕ら
映画のような別れ 巻き戻せない
きっと そっと 溶けてしまって 何もなかったみたいに
背中合わせの電車に乗り込んで さよなら
