school food punishment – Percentage

school food punishment, amp-reflection

While writing the lyrics to this song, Yumi Uchimura cried. While translating, I did not cry, but I came pretty damn close. The emotions of this song make up a good portion of my being.

Sadly, I could not preserve the nice wordplay at the end of verse 2.

So, with this, I believe every song by school food punishment to date has been translated. I eagerly await their next creations. Until then, project sfp – complete!

Percentage
Lyrics: Uchimura Yumi
Composition: school food punishment
Arrangement: Hasuo Masayuki, Eguchi Ryou

If time is limited, the truth is that
I want to hold you so much; I want to tell you everything.

If I keep it a secret, it’ll rotate in an infinite loop.
Even if I’ve dreamed to the point of giddiness, it’s just an illusion that ends inside me alone, after all.
(You won’t die from loneliness)
With my heart dancing for the eternity of the exchange,
I’m going around in circles. When I think of you, I feel scared, want to do it, want to break it down, get scared, feel pain.
(That’s reality)

Inside the future you’re looking at, if you look so closely,
You’ll just realize it so well you’ll want to break it down –
That you can’t hold a monopoly.

If time is limited, the truth is that
I want to hold you so much; I want to touch every bit of you.
Just looking from outside the frame, the truth is that
I can’t stand it; I hate that so much, but it can’t be helped.

Watch over you without crossing a single line?
(If you block it off, the pain will soften up)
Say the keyword and put it to an end?
(You can’t go back anymore)

If the concept of time disappears, I’d like to continue gazing at you.
That alone would be fine; I need no luxury.
I’m so unafraid that I can see even when the moon is behind the clouds.
It’s okay if it wanes, because it will wax again.

If I may spit out all of my heart, the truth is that
I want to hold you so much; I want to touch every bit of you.
The percentage within you that I occupy is probably going down, I suppose.
Even if it disappears someday, if you’re smiling, that’s enough for me.

Lyrics: Uchimura Yumi
Composition: school food punishment
Arrangement: Hasuo Masayuki, Eguchi Ryou

Toki ga kagirarete iru no nara  hontou no toko wa kanari
Dakishimetai ya  subete tsugete shimaitai wa

Himete ireba junkan suru  mugen ruupu
Furatsuku hodo no yume mita tte  shosen  jibun no naka dake de owaru gensou
(Samishisa ja shinanai wa)
Hikikae no eien ni  kokoro odoredo
Doudou meguri da  kimi omoeba  kowai  shitai  kowashita  kowai shi  itai
(Sore ga genjitsu)

Kimi ga mite iru mirai no naka ni  me wo koraseba
Kowashitai kurai ni  omoishiru dake sa
Hitorijime wa dekinai to

Toki wa kagirarete iru kara  hontou no toko wa kanari
Dakishimetai ya  furetsukushitai ya
Waku no soto kara mite iru dake ja  hontou no toko wa kanari
Gaman dekinai ya  iya de iya de shou ga wa

Issen  koezu ni mimamoru?
(Fusageba  itami wa yawaragu)
Kiiwaado itte  owari ni suru?
(Mou modorenai)

Toki ga gainengoto kieru nara  mitsume tsudzuketai ya
Sore dake de ii ya  zeitaku shinai wa
Tsuki ga kumotte miete shimau hodo kowai koto nante nai wa
Kakete mo ii ya  mada michiru kara

Kokoro  hakidashite ii no nara  hontou no toko wa kanari
Dakishimetai ya  furetsukushitai ya
Kimi no naka  boku no shimeru wariai  tabun hette yuku darou
Itsuka kiete mo  kimi ga waraereba sore de ii wa

パーセンテージ
作詞 内村友美
作曲 school food punishment
編曲 蓮尾理之、江口亮

時が限られているのなら 本当のとこはかなり
抱きしめたいや 全て告げてしまいたいわ

秘めていれば循環する 無限ループ
ふらつくほどの夢見たって 所詮 自分の中だけで終わる幻想
(寂しさじゃ死なないわ)
引き換えの永遠に 心躍れど
堂々巡りだ 君想えば 怖い したい 壊したい 怖いし 痛い
(それが現実)

君が見ている未来の中に 目を凝らせば
壊したいくらいに 思い知るだけさ
独り占めはできないと

時は限られているから 本当のとこはかなり
抱きしめたいや 触れ尽くしたいや
枠の外から見ているだけじゃ 本当のとこはかなり
我慢できないや 嫌で嫌でしょうがないわ

一線 越えずに見守る?
(塞げば 痛みはやわらぐ)
キーワード言って 終わりにする?
(もう戻れない)

時が概念ごと消えるなら 見つめ続けてたいや
それだけでいいや 贅沢しないわ
月が曇って見えてしまうほど怖いことなんてないわ
欠けてもいいや また満ちるから

心 吐き出していいのなら 本当のとこはかなり
抱きしめたいや 触れ尽くしたいや
君の中 僕の占める割合 多分減っていくだろう
いつか消えても 君が笑えればそれでいいわ
