Lyrics :

Kishin da omoi wo hakidashitai no wa
Sonzai no shoumei ga hoka ni nai kara
Tsukan da hazu no boku no mirai wa
"Songen" to "jiyuu" de mujun shiteru yo

Yugan da zanzou wo keshi saritai no wa
Jibun no genkai wo soko ni miru kara
Jiishiki kajou na boku no mado ni wa
Kyonen no karendaa hidzuke ga nai yo


Keshite riraito shite
Kudaranai chou gensou
Wasurarenu sonzai kan wo
Kishikaisei riraito shite
Imi no nai souzou mo
Kimi wo nasu gendouryoku
Zenshin zenrei wo kure yo


The reason I want to spit out these sentiments

is I have no other proof I even exist

my future that I thought I managed to grasp

is a contradiction of all I thought that I had

The reason I want this old image erased

is I see my own limits and I'm out of place

In the window of my own self-consciousness

I see last year's calendar, with no dates on it

Now I, I rewrite

All these worthless visions, and I'll be unforgettable

Come to life, and rewrite.

All my bad ideas

I will make them disappear before your eyes.
