Japanese Rōmaji Translation

ブレ始めた視界
ガラスの空、風の色
独り流れているメリーゴーランド
手を振る
後ろめたさより どことなく薄れた声
明日自分を置き去りに眠る
喜劇の涙より誰よりも儚く
奪われるまま汚れるまま
ココに

一夜明けた暗い朝に窓を額に見立て
眠る肌起こし濡れた絵に手を伸す
春が川に散らす命ユラユラ何所へ行く?
重たく閉ざした扉に手をかける
パレードの亡骸 静けさが今日も俺を
眠らせない真実と笑う
喜劇の涙より誰よりも儚く
奪われるまま汚れるまま
ココに愛を
おどけて踊る四季がどこまでも痛く
奪われるまま汚れるまま差し出す夢に溶けて

I bleed as my way of compensating everything to you
How heavy is blood?
Happiness and sadness lies too close
生まれてくる明日の手は純粋そのままで
涙で君がもう見えない

喜劇の涙より誰よりも儚く
奪われるまま汚れるまま
ココに愛を
君を見下ろせる一つの観覧車
ただ崩れ行く旋律さえ
甘く綺麗で怖い
浅い言葉より太陽にさらされた
影が焼き付く心に触れ

Bure hajimeta shikai
Garasu no sora, kaze no iro
Hitori nagarete iru merī gō rando
Te o furu
Ushirometasa yori Doko to naku usureta koe
Asu jibun o okizari ni nemuru
Kigeki no namida yori dare yori mo hakanaku
Ubawareru mama kegareru mama
Koko ni…

Ichiya aketa kurai asa ni mado o gaku ni mitate
Nemuru hada okoshi nureta e ni te o nobasu
Haru ga kawa ni chirasu inochi yurayura doko e iku?
Omotaku tozashita tobira ni te o kakeru
Parēdo no nakigara Shizukesa ga kyō mo ore o
Nemurasenai shinjitsu to warau
Kigeki no namida yori dare yori mo hakanaku
Ubawareru mama kegareru mama
Koko ni ai o…
Odokete odoru shiki ga dokomademo itaku
Ubawareru mama kegareru mama
Sashidasu yume ni tokete

I bleed as my way of compensating everything to you
How heavy is blood?
Happiness and sadness lies too close
Umaretekuru asu no te wa jūnsui sono mama de
Namida de kimi ga mō mienai

Kigeki no namida yori dare yori mo hakanaku
Ubawareru mama kegareru mama
Koko ni ai o…
Kimi o mioroseru hitotsu no kanransha
Tada kuzureiku senritsu sae
Amaku kirei de kowai
Asai kotoba yori taiyō ni sarasareta
Kagi ga yakitsuku kokoro ni fure

My vision begins to blur
The glass sky, the color of the wind
The merry-go-round playing alone
I wave
My somehow faded voice is more important to me than my guilty conscience
Tomorrow I sleep, leaving myself behind
Emptier still than any tears of comedy
Left to be just taken
Left to be just damaged
Here…

On the dark morning, I pretend the window to be a picture frame
I wake my sleeping skin and press my hand against this wet piece of picture
Spring blossoms and the petals fall, giving life to the river
Swaying from side to side, where will you go?
I put my hand on the heavy and closed door
The remains of the parade
The silence laughs along with the fact that I won't be sleeping again tonight
Emptier still than any tears of comedy
Left to be just taken
Left to be just damaged
Here, let there be love…
The jokingly-dancing seasons endlessly hurt
Left to be just taken
Left to be just damaged
And to be melted by the dreams I hold out

I bleed as my way of compensating everything to you
How heavy is blood?
Happiness and sadness lies too close
The hand that will be born tomorrow, will be simply pure and nothing else
I can barely see you now with all these tears

Emptier still than any tears of comedy
Left to be just taken
Left to be just damaged
Here, let there be love…
This is a ferris wheel, where I can look down and see you from
The melody that just comes crumbling down is also so sweet and beautiful, it's frightening
The shadow exposed by the sun is branded into my memory
and it touches my heart more than any shallow words combined

Trivia

Title

  • The working title of this song was 推定無罪 (Suiteimuzai), which means "Presumption of Innocence".

Lyrics

  • Unlike DOZING GREEN, this song has only one translation, made for the single, with the English version receiving entirely new lyrics. The lyrics of DOZING GREEN were instead translated twice, once for the single and once for the album and the song's English version.
    • As such, the album booklet doesn't actually include the translation of GLASS SKIN's lyrics. Interestingly, this wasn't changed for the Remastered & Expanded album, even though the English version doesn't appear on that album.
