Kekkai Sensen – Sugar Song to Bitter Step

UNISON SQUARE GARDEN, Kekkai Sensen ED

Sugar Song and Bitter Step
Lyrics: Tabuchi Tomoya
Composition: Tabuchi Tomoya
Arrangement: UNISON SQUARE GARDEN

I’ve grown so used to this supernatural-disaster-level madness that I mistake this daily life for peace.
As this rambling coaster jolts me to and fro, what’s the thing that I can’t lose sight of?

Swallowed by the concept of egalitarian fundamentalism, it feels like even my heart is pushed into et cetera.
I hate you, I love you – you need to say these things clearly, or you’re no different from a doll.

In the crowds of people moving through the night’s city streets, some seem happy and others seem lonely.
The contrast skips around all over the music staff, and turns into song and rhythm!

Marmalade & sugar song, peanuts & bitter step,
It’s sweet and bitter and sends my head spinning around.
Let’s head for south-southwest and keep the party going on; tonight will be a night to amaze the entire world.
I feel fantastic! Form a chain and reflect!

Caught up in the reasoning of probabilistic rationalism, our music is reduced to a tool.
Turn this way, don’t turn your back on me – though that’s not really sound reasoning.

Ah, when the music’s over at the festival, some are filled with excitement and some are on the verge of tears.
I think they’re basically the same, but trying to put it into words would be the height of silliness.

This is the best, sings the sugar song; happiness, says the bitter step.
Show the reason we can’t die on the screen over there.
Regret or not, tomorrow will still come at constant speed, you know.
Once the mental weather forecast is done updating…

Someday, even if the madness holds its breath,
Someday, even if reasoning loses its meaning,
Feeling song & step… The way our sound keeps on ringing out
Is the only proof that shows we are uniquely what we are, QED!

Marmalade & sugar song, peanuts & bitter step,
Show the reason to live on, on the screen over there.
The north-northeast lies behind – so proud, just look how far we’ve come.

Let’s keep on amazing the entire world!

Marmalade & sugar song, peanuts & bitter step,
It’s sweet and bitter and sends my head spinning around.
Let’s head for south-southwest and keep the party going on; tonight will be a night to amaze the entire world.
I feel fantastic! Form a chain and we’re a reflection!
Goes on – from fun to hardship and on to fun again!

シュガーソングとビターステップ
作詞:田淵智也
作曲:田淵智也
編曲:UNISON SQUARE GARDEN

超天変地異みたいな狂騒にも慣れて こんな日常を平和と見間違う
rambling coaster 揺さぶられながら 見失えないものは何だ?

平等性原理主義の概念に飲まれて 心までがまるでエトセトラ
大嫌い 大好き ちゃんと喋らなきゃ 人形とさして変わらないし

宵街を行く人だかりは 嬉しそうだったり 寂しそうだったり
コントラストが五線譜を飛び回り 歌とリズムになる

ママレード&シュガーソング、ピーナッツ&ビターステップ
甘くて苦くて目が回りそうです
南南西を目指してパーティを続けよう 世界中を驚かせてしまう夜になる
I feel 上々 連鎖になってリフレクト

蓋然性合理主義の正論に揉まれて 僕らの音楽は道具に成り下がる?
こっちを向いてよ 背を向けないでよ それは正論にならないけど

祭囃子のその後で 昂ったままの人 泣き出してしまう人
多分同じだろう でも言葉にしようものなら稚拙が極まれり

最高だってシュガーソング 幸せってビターステップ
死ねない理由をそこに映し出せ
惜しがったって等速で明日は来ちゃうけど
脳内天気予報のアップデートを果たしたなら

someday 狂騒が息を潜めても
someday 正論に意味がなくなっても
feeling song & step 鳴らし続けることだけが
僕たちを僕たちたらしめる証明になる、QED!

ママレード&シュガーソング、ピーナッツ&ビターステップ
生きてく理由をそこに映し出せ
北北東は後方へ その距離が誇らしい

世界中を、驚かせ続けよう。

ママレード&シュガーソング、ピーナッツ&ビターステップ
甘くて苦くて目が回りそうです
南南西を目指してパーティを続けよう 世界中を驚かせてしまう夜になる
I feel 上々 連鎖になってリフレクション
goes on 一興去って一難去ってまた一興
