At low elevation, the streets awaken.
Making their sounds, the people come and go.
Even if I try to match my pace with theirs where we disagree,

The weariness that spreads all throughout the room
Is the bitter taste of the ordinary.
The premonition that fascinated me
While I was lying down
Faintly appears in my vision.

The name of this emotion that’s overflowing…
If we can get there, any place is fine, it says.
I trust in the sensations of my bare feet and jump in,
To the expanse of rooftop out there, ah…

I stare at metal beast I found in the distance.
Truth illuminated in midday light
Is a boring thing,

But the world that fascinated me while I was lying down
Took on a little bit of color.

I’ll entrust myself to the wind that’s sliding in.
I don’t need this body that won’t move.
If I freely connect
These new breaths that can fly from birth,
I can go anywhere.

Look, softly, I’ll go upstream and catch hold.
Let’s make good use of the air currents
And rise higher, still higher.

Look, down there, in the landscape
That had been so boringly familiar until just now,
I can see myself, my consciousness dissolved, below.

Chase after the emotion that’s spilling out.
If we can get there, anywhere is fine.

I’ll entrust myself to the wind that’s sliding in.

I don’t need this body that won’t move.
I don’t need clocks that have stopped, either.

Trusting in the sensations of my bare feet, I’ll fly, ah…
Rather than the landscape that passes by,
I’ll go by the speed of my heart, faster than anything’s reach.

Hikuku   machinami ga mezamete yuku

Tomatta mama no tokei mo iranai

Suashi no kanshoku tayori ni tonde   aa
Toorisugiteku keshiki yori mo
Oitsukenai kono mune no hayasa de

低く 街並みが目覚めていく
音を立て 行き交う人
揃わないその足並みへと重ねても

部屋の中いっぱいに広がる
倦怠は日常の苦味
寝転んだまま見蕩れた
予感が僅か
この目にうつる

溢れ落ちていく感情の名前
辿り着くなら何処でもいいよって
素足の感触たよりに飛び込む
広がってく屋根の上を

遠くに見つけた鉄の獣に目を凝らす
真昼の光 照らしだされた真実は
つまらないものだけど

寝転んだまま見蕩れた
世界は少し色付いていた

滑り込んでいく風にゆだねよう
動かないこの身体はいらない
生まれては飛べる
新しい呼吸を自由に繋げば
どこまでもいける

ほら そっと流れ遡りつかむ
気流を上手く使って
高くもっと高くへ上ろう

ほら さっきまで飽きるほど
見慣れていた景色の中に
融けた意識の自分を見下ろす

零れ落ちていく感情を追って
辿り着くなら何処でもいいよ

滑り込んでいく風にゆだねよう

動かないこの身体はいらないよ
止まったままの時計もいらない

素足の感触たよりに飛んで ああ
通り過ぎてく景色よりも
追いつけないこの胸の速さで
