Lyrics
Japanese Rōmaji

中身の無い唄を聞き漁り
心が満たされるわけでもなく

隠しきれない傷と
満面の笑みで語りかけ
つぶらな瞳 闇を照らす
答えが欲しい 空像に口無し

生きる為にかけた鍵
錆を落とし理解の餓え
開き覗く

輪になって囲む 捨てる教養
マンホールから覗く君達もおいで?

慣れてくるはずさ
慣れてきた?

道に添えた花束が笑う

隠しきれない傷と
満面の笑みで語りかけ
つぶらな瞳 闇を照らす
答えが欲しい 空像に口無し

羽根の無い背を向け
拒む未来

流れた刻は平等に問う 生き方

降り積もる 願い
散れば愛おしく
誰もが見ようとしない その花束が
見詰めた未来

Nakami no nai uta o kiki asari
Kokoro ga mitasareru wake de mo naku

Kakushikirenai kizu to
Manmen no emi de katarikake
Tsubura na hitomi Yami o terasu
Kotae ga hoshii Kūzō ni kuchinashi

Ikiru tame ni kaketa kagi
Sabi o otoshi rikai no ue
Hiraki nozoku

Wa ni natte kakomu Suteru kyōyō
Manhōru kara nozoku kimi-tachi mo oide?

Naretekuru hazu sa
Naretekita?

Michi ni soeta hanataba ga warau

Kakushikirenai kizu to
Manmen no emi de katarikake
Tsubura na hitomi Yami o terasu
Kotae ga hoshii Kūzō ni kuchinashi

Hane no nai se o muke
Kobamu mirai

Nagareta toki wa byōdō ni tō Ikikata

Furitsumoru Negai
Chireba itōshiku
Dare mo ga miyō to shinai Sono hanataba ga
Mitsumeta mirai

Translations
Translation on ARCHE Translation on 「我葬の詩」下巻

Listening away to music with no substance
Not exactly fulfilling my heart

Speaking to me with that visible scar and wide grin
Those innocent eyes light the darkness
I want an answer
The sky has no mouth

I locked it in order to live
I cleaned off the rust, starving in comprehension
I opened to take a look

Gathering around in a circle
Throwing away education
You guys looking through the manhole,
Why don't you come join us?

You'll get used to it
Are you used to it?

The bouquet placed by the road laughs

Speaking to me with that visible scar and wide grin
Those innocent eyes light the darkness
I want an answer
The sky has no mouth

Turn towards the back with no wings
I reject the future

Time that has passed asks us equally, the way of life

Prayers pile up
If it scatters it means it's precious
The bouquet no one tries to see taught me
I stared at the future

Listening away to music with no substance
Not exactly fulfilling my heart

Speaking to me with that visible scar and wide grin
Those innocent eyes light the darkness
I want an answer
The vacant image has no mouth

I locked it in order to live
I cleaned off the rust, starving in comprehension
I opened to take a look

Gathering around in a circle
Throwing away education
You guys looking through the manhole, why don't you come join us?

You'll get used to it
Are you getting used to it?

The bouquet placed by the road laughs

Speaking to me with that visible scar and wide grin
Those innocent eyes light the darkness
I want an answer
The vacant image has no mouth

Turning my back without wings towards you
I reject the future

Time that has passed asks us equally, the way of life

Prayers pile up
It's precious if it scatters
The bouquet no one tries to see is the future I gaze
