|Haigo ni wa shattaa no kabe|
Yubisaki wa tetsu no nioi
Susume hajike dono michi komu desho
Find a way koko kara
|There’s a wall of shutters behind me.|
My fingertips smell like steel.
Move ahead! Strum those strings! It’s crowded, at any rate.
Find a way from here.
|Found out mitsukeru|
Rock o kanadero
Tooku o misuero
Ikitsugi sae dekinai machi no naka
|You’ll find what you’re looking for.|
Play some rock
Gaze into the distance
Inside this city where you can’t even take a breather.
|Hoshizora ga saikou no butai|
Karasutachi kaakaa to naku yo
Itsumo omou yo itsu neteru n daro
|The starry sky is the best stage of them all.|
The crows cry out, “Caw, caw”.
I’m always thinking of them. I wonder when they’ll go to sleep.
|Find a way atashi mo|
Song for utau yo
Rock o hibikase
Crow to utau yo
|Find a way – I will too,|
In a song for me to sing out.
Making rock echo
With the crows, I’ll sing out.
|Itsu made konna tokoro ni iru|
Sou iu yatsu mo ita ki ga suru
Urusai koto dake iu no nara
Shikkoku no hane ni sarawarete kiete kure
|How long will I exist in this place?|
I feel like there were people who once said that.
If you’re only going to say annoying things,
Let the jet black wings carry you away and just disappear.
|Zenryoku de mou taoresou da|
Yubi mo surikirete itai
Demo ne yaru yo konya mo biggu na sutoorii
|With all my power, I’m about to collapse.|
My fingers are worn out and in pain,
But, still, I’ll perform. Tonight will be a big story.
|Find a way koko kara|
Found out mitsukeru
Rock o kanadero
Luck o utau yo
|Find a way from here.|
You’ll find what you’re looking for.
Let’s rock out and play on.
I’ll take my luck and sing it out.
|Itsu made datte koko ni iru yo|
Toorisugite iku hito no naka
Yami ni tozasareta suteeji de
Ima kibou no uta uta yo
|No matter how long, I’ll exist here|
Within all the people who pass through.
On this stage enclosed in the darkness,
I sing my poem of hope right now.
Anata datte tsukareteru deshou
Even you must also be tired.
