Plastic Tree – Rakka

Falling Petals

Lyrics: Arimura Ryutaro

Composition: Hasegawa Tadashi

Arrangement: Plastic Tree

Bereft of feeling   how appropriate, that   I’ll try a song, this
A gradation as though I’m struggling on to the furthest reaches, dawn now breaks
How many thousands of times have I felt like this?   even self-enlightenment is pitiful
But today is   no, but today is also   and again, tomorrow will also be like this

There are choices before my eyes   I choose self-interested sentiments
It is not right or wrong   it will simply pass by   every day

The falling, scattering flowers are completely bloomed, where does the wind carry my heart away to?
Chasing memory and forgetting difficulty   a vivid mess only I can burst

As the slightly off second hand of the clock advances, I unexpectedly realize I slept for two or three minutes
Absent-mindedly   existence slips away   disappearing sensation   do you understand?

Forgetting the conclusion, logic*   both fate and self-criticism, clean up*
Is this necessary or unnecessary   questioning   every day

The season loses self-control   transient   words in the wind   wont stop rustling
Happy sadness   I wonder if it is without end   while bustling,   the dream’s nightly rain closes

Hey, why wont someone stay by my side forever
If it were like that,   even these foolish moves would have some meaning
Hey,   wont you please feel free to dance as you like
Already,   however, we’re out of time   the stage lights go out   hollowness

The falling, scattering flowers are completely bloomed, where does the wind carry my heart away to?
Chasing memory and forgetting difficulty   it’s so vivid, but   who might you be?
In the end, knowing the painted sky can’t be touched   goodbye, someday
Falling into the world

*I almost want to say this could be an English play on words, in which logic is pronounced like lonely and clean up is pronounced like joker…but Ryutaro doesn’t usually play with English, so I could be hallucinating it, but feel free to mentally insert as you wish
