ONE OK ROCK, Yumeyume

Requested by Hawks.

Recommended. ONE OK ROCK’s sound is quite nice; the vocals in particular are great.

Crow
Lyrics: Taka
Composition: Alex / Taka

In the early morning garbage dump,
The black birds endure together to live.
Try picturing us there instead of them.
You’ll believe we’re living in a sorrowful world.

Without changing one expression on my face, I tilt my head.
In the depths of those black eyes, they have enemies on all sides. Ah…

Am I crying? Am I laughing? You people don’t know even that.
I embrace this loneliness, and the sadness turns my body pitch black!!
One of these days, these wings will change from black to white.
A demon inside, an angel outside,
You are the ones who created this!!

Looks like you looked down on us a little too much!
We remember everything.
Even today, from that telephone pole, we can see
The things you people did to us that day.

In the name of revenge,
I stand up by and for myself.
The scenery you see from there is dirty, isn’t it? Ah…

The sword I was sharpening comes out now with no indication.
I’ll inflict wounds, and when I realize it, it’ll be something that can’t be undone.
Why was I born into this era, facing such sadness, I wonder?
Unable to control even myself, I’m just like a crow that’s forgotten how to fly.

The wing turns to white
I won’t stop the fight

Am I crying? Am I laughing? No one at all knows even that.
I release this loneliness, and there’s a whiteness that I must convey to someone.
One of these days, these wings will become neither black nor white;
I’ll become unable to see their shape, and then I’ll create some new form again.

Karasu
Lyrics: Taka
Composition: Alex / Taka

Souchou no gomi sute basho ni wa
Shinogiatte ikiru kuroi toritachi
Sore to bokura daburasete mite
Kanashii sekai de ikite iru to kakushin

Hyoujou hitotsu kaezu kubi kashige
Kuroi me no wa okusoko shimensoka   aa

Naiteru ka waratteru ka   sore sura kimira ni wa wakaranai
Kono kodoku dakishimete   kanashisa de karada wa makkura sa!!
Kono tsubasa itsu no hi ka   kuro yo ka shiro e to kawatte itte
Naka wa akuma   soto wa tenshi
Kore wo tsukuridasu no wa  so  omaera sa!!

Choi to namesugita mitai da na!
Orera wa zenbu oboeteru
Ano hi omaera ni sareta koto
Kyou mo ano denchuu kara mite iru zo

Fukushuu no na wo karite
Mizukara ga ue ni tachi
Soko kara miru keshiki wa kitanai ndarou na   aa

Togareteta katana ga ima   shiji sareru demo naku nukarete tte
Kizutsukete ki ga tsukeba   torikaeshi no tsukanai koto ni naru
Boku wa nande kanashiku mo   kono jidai ni umarete kita ndarou?
Jibun sura seigyo dekizu   maru de tobikata wo wasureteru karasu

The wing turns to white
I won’t stop the fight

Naiteru ka waratteru ka   sore sura dare ni mo wakari wa shinai
Kono kodoku tokihanatte   dareka ni tsutaeru beki shiro ga aru
Kono tsubasa itsu no hi ka   kuro demo shiro demo naku natte tte
Katachi sura mienaku natte   mata arata na nanika tsukuridasu no sa

カラス
Lyrics: Taka
Composition: Alex / Taka

早朝のゴミ捨て場所には
しのぎ合って生きる黒い鳥達
それと僕らダブらせてみて
悲しい世界で生きていると確信

表情一つ変えず首かしげ
黒い目の奥底は四面楚歌 嗚呼

泣いてるか笑ってるか ソレすら君らには分からない
この孤独抱きしめて 悲しさで体は真っ黒さ!!
この翼いつの日か 黒よか白へと変わっていって
内は悪魔 外は天使
これを作り出すのは so お前らさ!!

ちょいとナメすぎたみたいだな!
オレらは全部覚えてる
あの日お前らにされたコト
今日もあの電柱から見ているぞ

復讐の名をかりて
自らが上に立ち
そこから見る景色は汚いんだろうな 嗚呼

磨がれてた刀が今 指示されるでもなく抜かれてって
傷つけて気がつけば 取り返しのつかないことになる
僕は何で悲しくも この時代に生まれてきたんだろう?
自分すら制御できず まるで飛び方を忘れてるカラス

The wing turns to white
I won’t stop the fight

泣いてるか笑ってるか ソレすら誰にも分かりはしない
この孤独解き放って 誰かに伝えるべき白がある
この翼いつの日か 黒でも白でもなくなってって
形すら見えなくなって また新たな形作り出すのさ
