Lyrics

sou migaki tsuzuketa NAIFU no you sa

kao ga utsutteru kono mado no mukou de
boku o neratteru suki o misetara ima ni mo hanesou na
sonna haritsumeta PURESSHAA tonari awase de
dare yori daitan futeki ni warau
kitto dare ni totte mo onaji koto daro
I must fight against myself

sou hito ga yosasou na kao de yatte kuru
totsuzen no higeki mo utagau koto wa naku
nageku koto sezu damatta mama de ue o miagerun da
donna arifureta SHIIN mo enji tsuzukero
yume to ka kibou to ka iu mae ni sa
kitto dare ni totte mo onaji koto daro
You must fight against yourself

The sun sets and a new day comes
Repeating is one change
Don't avert eyes from differences
Your nerve and soul to the limit Go forward now

haritsumeta PURESSHAA tonari awase de
dare yori daitan futeki ni warau
kitto dare ni totte mo onaji koto daro
I must fight against myself
kitto dare ni totte mo onaji koto daro
You must fight against yourself

So, we go on refining life like an ever-sharpened knife

And our faces are reflected on the back of a windowpane
Now the target's set as me if my weaknesses they see
it will come to haunt me once again
With that pressure hemming in on you from on every other side
We smile just like the other folks but with a lot more pride
Oh, I'm sure no matter who you are, it always stays the same
I must fight against myself

So, such an angelic face now coming down the road
Unable to foretell sudden tragedy will unfold
With never a sound With nary a cry I look up to the blue sky
And now keep acting out the roles you have in any scene you play
Before you talk of dreams or hope in any other way
Oh, I'm sure no matter who you are, it always stays the same
You must fight against yourself

The sun sets and a new day comes
Repeating is one change
Don't avert eyes from differences
Your nerve and soul to the limit Go forward now

With pressure hemming in on you from on every other side
We smile just like the other folks but with a lot more pride
Oh, I'm sure no matter who you are, it always stays the same
I must fight against myself
Oh, I'm sure no matter who you are, it always stays the same
You must fight against yourself

そう磨き続けた ナイフのようさ

顔が映ってる この窓の向こうで
僕を狙ってる 隙を見せたら 今にも跳ねそうな
そんな張りつめたプレッシャー 隣り合わせで
誰より大胆不敵に笑う
きっと誰にとっても 同じことだろ
I must fight against myself

そう人が良さそうな 顔でやってくる
突然の悲劇も 疑うことはなく
嘆くことせず 黙ったままで 上を見上げるんだ
どんなありふれたシーンも 演じ続けろ
夢とか希望とか言う前にさ
きっと誰にとっても 同じことだろ
You must fight against yourself

The sun sets and a new day comes
Repeating is one change
Don't avert eyes from differences
Your nerve and soul to the limit Go forward now

張りつめたプレッシャー 隣り合わせで
誰より大胆不敵に笑う
きっと誰にとっても 同じことだろ
I must fight against myself
きっと誰にとっても同じことだろ
You must fight against yourself
