~Kanji~
7から8へ

ある日を境目に立ちすくんで言った
このままどこか消えちまおうって
笑いながら立ってる君の耳には
聞こえもしないのに僕はそう言う
すると
きみがいたそこに隕石が

くたびれた過去を言葉で綴った
それで何か満たされる気がした
腐れてくだけ腐れていくんだ
それでいいと決めつけで言う
やがて
君がいたそこに僕だけが

痛みさえ言葉にして歌う僕がさ
疚しくて卑しく思えてきたんだ

いずれ此処に居る理由を知るのさ

僕はまた嘘だけで作られた体で
これからは、なんて言ってみたりしてさ

歌にさえ出来ないようなそれを信じて
掴むその手にあるのは
誰の手か

~Translation~

As I’m stuck in the same place, unable to move on since that day,
I said: “Maybe we might as well just vanish from here.”
You’re just standing there, laughing.
My words won’t enter your ears, yet I still say them.
Just then,
a meteorite falls at the very spot where you were.

I tried to patch together my threadbare past with what words I had,
to somehow give me a sense of fulfillment.
It’s just gonna go on rotting until there’s nothing left,
but I’ve decided for myself that I’m good with that.
And eventually,
I’d be the only one left where you used to be.

See, I’m the kind of guy who’d turn his pains into songs.
I’ve come to feel so ashamed, so disgusted with myself.

One day, I’m going to understand the reason why I’m here.

With this self made up of nothing but lies, I’ve fallen back into the habit
of saying things like, “From now on, I’m gonna…”

Believing in that something I can’t even put into my songs,
I reach out my hand to grasp—
whose hand is it?
