Lyrics:

Kishin da omoi wo hakidashitai no wa
Sonzai no shoumei ga ta ni nai kara
Tsukan da hazu no boku no mirai wa
“Songen” to “jiyuu” de nujun shiteru yo

Yugan da zazou wo keshi saritai no wa
Jibun no genkai wo soko ni miru kara
Jiishiki kajou no 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 dendouryoku
Zenshin zenrei wo kure yo

Mebaete ta kanjou kitte kuyan de
Shosen tada bonyou shitte naite
Kusatta kokoro wo
Usugitanai uso wo

Keshite RIRAITO shite
Kudaranai chou gensou
Wasurarenu sonzai kan wo

Kishikaisei RIRAITO shite
Imi no nai souzou mo
Kimi wo nasu dendouryoku
Zenshin zenrei wo kure yo

Translation:

The reason I want to spit out these wierd thoughts
Is that there is no other proof of my existence
My future that I should have grasped hold of
Is contradicted by “dignity” and “freedom”

The reason I want to erase this distorted afterimage
Is that I see my limitations in it
In my excessive self consciousness, through my window
I saw last years calender, with no dates on it

Erase and Rewrite it
A worthless, consuming illusion
An unforgettable experience of life

Recover your hope
Rewrite it
A meaningless imagination and the driving force that creates you
Give it all your body and soul

I cry through my sprouted feelings
I cry since I’m mediocre after all

My rotten heart and filthy lies, erase them
Rewrite them
A worthless, consuming illusion
An unforgettable experience of life

Recover your hope
Rewrite it
A meaningless imagination and the driving force that creates you
Give it all your body and soul
