Durarara!! – Complication

ROOKiEZ is PUNK’D, Durarara!! OP2

A little note about the rap: quite a few of the lines seemed to just be nouns with descriptions. I slightly modified those to become sentences. Also, there are a few cultural references, but I translated them to make them hopefully self-explanatory.

I love the pizzicato strings in this song.

Complication
Lyrics: SHiNNOSUKE
Music: ROOKiEZ is PUNK’D
Arrange: ROOKiEZ is PUNK’D

The low sky laments with a face that looks like it’s about to cry.
With nothing to do, I whittle away the hours.
With nowhere to spit them out, I swallow down my feelings
And spit out saliva mixed with irritation instead.

Harboring anxiety that everything might break down, I fear tomorrow.
I know that just looking at the day after tomorrow won’t reveal the answer to me.

What should I draw on the endlessly spreading, pure white tomorrow?
What should I draw on the tomorrow that’s dyed jet black by reality?
I struggle to shine.

I’m worried, and it’s kind of pathetic.
I can’t sit still; I’m running away from responsibility.
Things I want to do? I’ve got nothing.
I sneak up to the rooftop to smoke a Mild Seven.
Lunch at Saizeriya today wasn’t really fun.
My men look at me with worry in their eyes.
“I’m not crying,” I spit out.
Even if I pretend to be strong, it’s insanely hard.
I’ve gotten used to traveling on this gloomy road.
I finally bought the iPod that I wanted.
It’s playing some cheap, superficial rap
.
This cheap bag is heavy for some reason.
This place that should be kind and warm
Is depressing, so I throw open the window.
I feel like I’m going to be crushed by the pressure,
So I retreat to the park I always run to.

Harboring anxiety that everything might break down, I fear tomorrow.
I know that just looking at the day after tomorrow won’t reveal the answer to me.

What should I draw on the endlessly spreading, pure white tomorrow?
What should I draw on the tomorrow that’s dyed jet black by reality?
I struggle to shine.

Within this limited, tiny space of time,
Just draw your own hopeless self.
For now, that’s still good enough.

What should I draw on the endlessly spreading, pure white tomorrow?
What should I draw on the tomorrow that’s dyed jet black by reality?
I struggle to shine.

What should I draw on the endlessly spreading, pure white tomorrow?
What should I draw on the tomorrow that’s dyed jet black by reality?
I struggle to shine.

Nakidashisou na kao de ureu hikui sora
Suru koto mo naku toki wo kezuru
Hakidasu ba no nai omoi wo nomikonde
Iradachi majiri no tsuba wo haku

Nani mo kamo ga kowaresou na fuan daite asu ni obie
Asatte bakka miteta tte kotae wa denai koto datte wakatteru

Kagirinaku hirogaru masshiro na ashita ni nani wo egaku
Genjitsu ga someyuku makkura na ashita ni nani wo egaku
Mogakikagayaku

Nayanderu jibun ga nanka dasakute
Jitto shiterannakute bakkure
Yaritai koto sonna mon nai ze
Okujou de kossori kuwaeru maisen
Nanka tanoshiku nee kyou no saize
Shinpai so una me de miteru maimen
“Naite nai ze” nante haite
Tsuyogatte mite mo maji tsurai ze
Kayoinareta usugurai douro
Yatto no omoikatta i-Pod
Uwabe dake no usupperai RAP
Nazeka omoi usuppera no BAG
Yasashiku atatakai hazu no basho
Omokurushikute akehanatsu mado
Juuatsu ni oshitsubusaresou de
Nigekonda itsumo no kouen

Nani mo kamo ga kowaresou na fuan daite asu ni obie
Asatte bakka miteta tte kotae wa denai koto datte wakatteru

Kagirinaku hirogaru masshiro na ashita ni nani wo egaku
Genjitsu ga someyuku makkura na ashita ni nani wo egaku
Mogakikagayaku

Kagiriaru wazuka na toki no naka
Hetakuso na jibun egake
Ima wa mada sore de ii

*Kagirinaku hirogaru masshiro na ashita ni nani wo egaku
Genjitsu ga someyuku makkura na ashita ni nani wo egaku
Mogakikagayaku

コンプリケイション
Lyrics: SHiNNOSUKE
Music: ROOKiEZ is PUNK’D
Arrange: ROOKiEZ is PUNK’D

泣き出しそうな表情で憂う低い空
する事もなく時間を削る
吐き出す場のない思いを飲み込んで
苛立ち混じりの唾を吐く

何もかもが壊れそうな不安抱いて明日に怯え
明後日ばっか見てたって答えは出ないことだってわかってる

限りなく広がる真っ白な明日に何を描く
現実が染め行く真っ暗な明日に何を描く
もがき輝く

悩んでる自分がなんかダサくて
じっとしてらんなくてバックレ
やりたい事そんなもんないぜ
屋上でこっそり咥えるマイセン
なんか楽しくねえ今日のサイゼ
心配そうな目で見てるマイメン
「泣いてないぜ」なんて吐いて
強がってみてもマジ辛いぜ
通いなれた薄暗い道路
やっとの思い買ったi-Pod
上辺だけの薄っぺらいRAP
何故か重い薄っぺらのBAG
優しく暖かいはずの場所
重苦しくて開け放つ窓
重圧に押し潰されそうで
逃げ込んだいつもの公園

何もかもが壊れそうな不安抱いて明日に怯え
明後日ばっか見てたって答えは出ないことだってわかってる

限りなく広がる真っ白な明日に何を描く
現実が染め行く真っ暗な明日に何を描く
もがき輝く

限りある僅かな時の中
ヘタクソな自分描け
今はまだそれでいい

*限りなく広がる真っ白な明日に何を描く
現実が染め行く真っ暗な明日に何を描く
もがき輝く

*repeat
