Machi no fukei – Lyrics and Translation




MACHI NO FUKEI

Machi no kaze ni hikisakare
maiagatta yume kuzu ga
rojo no sumi de samusa ni furue momi kesareteku

Tachinarabu biru no naka
chippokena oira sa
noshikakaru kyozo no naka de
kokoro ubawareteiru

Ate no nai mainichi wo
marude norainu mitaini
ai ni ue kokoro wa kawaki
furatsuki mawaru yo

Haiiro no kabe no ue
kakinagutta kimochi wa
sorezore no arikata no
munashisa ni furueterunda

Oitaterareru machi no naka
asufaruto ni mimi wo ate
zatto no shita umoreteru
uta wo mitsukedashitai
karappo no ashita ni mukete nageteyarusa

Daremo ga nemurinitsuku mae ni
kokoro no harmony kanadeyo
garasu tsukuri no uta kanadeyo
mugen no iro wo chiribameta
machi no fukei

Kokoro no harmony kanadeyo

mugen no iro wo chiribameta machi no fukei

TRANSLATION

Scenes of town

The wind lifts and scatters
fragments of dreams throughout the city.
They end up trembling from the cold
in the corner of a road, crushed.

We feel so small
among rows and rows of buildings.
Caught in oppressive, false images
our hearts get stolen.

Each day has no end,
we’re like stray dogs.
Starved for love, our hearts dry up
and wander aimlessly.

I have written about these feelings
and thrown them over a gray wall,
shaken by the emptiness of this way of life.

In this hostile city
I put my ear to the asphalt.
I want to find the songs
that are buried under the traffic.
I will throw them across the empty tomorrow.

Everyone (feels a bit like this), before getting asleep.
Let’s play the harmonies of our soul.
Let’s play songs that are made of glass.
A suburban scenery
inlaid with the color of infinity.

[*LYRICS USED ONLY DURING THE LIVE VERSION
The human condition is quite like a play
But no one understands what makes us act this way.
It’s a vortex of love and hatred
that we try to restrain.
But who could ever stop it?
We’re creatures who can only resort to prayer.*]

Please, shut up.
There’s nothing I need to understand.
Because I understand well,
even if you laugh and say these
are just idle fancies of mine.

All these lives without meaning…
It shouldn’t be about money.
For dreams, for love:
for these things I’ll try my best.

In a hostile city,
through the dazzle of days
I will describe my feelings,
I’ll keep singing, I’ll keep performing.

Life is a canvas.
Life is a music score.
Life is a stage on which time
is the subject of our performance.

Let’s play the harmonies of our soul.
Let’s play songs that are made of glass.
