Japanese Romaji English
五月雨 錆びた声が告ぐ samidare sabita koe ga tsugu A rusted voice spoke amidst the early summer rain
いつものように “異常ナシ” の機体 (からだ) itsumo no you ni "ijou nashi" no karada with the usual physical status report: "no abnormalities"
さかさま 囁いた誰か sakasama sasayaita dareka someone whispered that it was quite the opposite
不確かな予感 気付かぬふり futashika na yokan kizukanu furi pretending not tonotice that uncertain premonition

たとえ僕が消えても tatoe boku ga kiete mo Even if I were to disappear,
美しい世界のままで utsukushii sekai no mama de the gears would continue to
完璧に噛み合っていく kanpeki ni kamiatte iku mesh flawlessly in this beautiful world
瑕一つ残らずに kizu hitotsu nokorazu ni without even a single scratch

狂わない拍子 (リズム) で歩いて kuruwanai rizumu de aruite Walking in perfect rhythm
変わらない毎日の中で kawaranai mainichi no naka de amongst these unchanging days
ただ壊れゆく時を待って tada kowareyuku toki o matte just waiting for the moment when I finally break apart,
今日も「前に倣え」 kyou mo "mae ni narae" going with the flow today as well
胸のどこかしらが痛んで mune no doko kashira ga itande something in my chest pains me
そんな僕は多分異端で sonna boku wa tabun itan de perhaps it is because I am a heretic,
感傷的な機械 (センチメンタル・アンドロイド) senchimentaru andoroido a sentimental android
狂い出す歯車を 止めて kuruidasu haguruma o tomete someone stop these deviant gears of mine

最初は人のためだった saisho wa hito no tame datta At first it was for the sake of humans that such machines were born
機械 (ぼくら) は生まれ ここまで進歩した (そだった) けど bokura wa umare koko made sodatta kedo though things have come this far, before they realized it, the two sides became
いつしか分かり合えなくなり itsushika wakariae naku nari unable to understand one another
世界を分かつ深い国境 (きれつ) sekai o wakatsu fukai kiretsu a deep divide came to split the world in two

アイという弱さ 求めて ai to iu yowasa motomete Seeking out a weakness called "love"
ナミダという水を流して namida to iu mizu o nagashite letting that fluid called "tears" flow from their eyes
何故 彼等 (ひと) は愚かなままで naze hito wa oroka na mama de Why do they laugh so foolishly?
笑うのか 分からない warau no ka wakaranai I just don't understand...

不揃いな拍子 (リズム) で歩いて fuzoroi na rizumu de aruite Marching forth to different rhythms,
ばらばらの明日を描いて barabara no ashita o egaite sketching out a scattered mix of tomorrows
それぞれの【error】(こころ) を抱いて sorezore no kokoro o daite embracing these "errors" of theirs,
不可思議な人間 (いきもの) fukashigi na ikimono humans are inexplicable creatures
胸の奥深くが痛んで mune no okufukaku ga itande this pain so deep in my chest,
そんな僕はきっと異端で sonna boku wa kitto itan de I am most surely a heretic
感傷的な機械 (センチメンタル・アンドロイド) senchimentaru andoroido a sentimental android,
お願いだから、誰か止めて onegai dakara, dareka tomete someone please put a stop to these thoughts!

聴こえる kikoeru I can hear it,
耳鳴りに似た声がしている miminari ni nita koe ga shiteiru a voice almost indistinguishable from a buzzing in my ears

機械 (ぼくら) は夢を視ないのに bokura wa yume o mi nai no ni Though machines aren't supposed to dream,
どうして僕は何度も何度もおんなじような、 doushite boku wa nando mo nando mo onnaji you na, why does my mind continue to trace out such
ありえもしない未来をなぞって息苦しくなるのだろう? arie mo shinai mirai o nazotte ikigurushiku naru no darou? an unconceivable future which suffocates me
空回るだけの歯車たちが廃品 (ガラクタ) へ果てゆく道の途中 sora mawaru dake no haguruma tachi ga garakuta e hateyuku michi no tochuu in the midst of my spinning gears pointlessly, in a vacuum until the end comes,
答を見つけ kotae o mitsuke I found the answer

狂わない拍子 (リズム) で歩いて kuruwanai rizumu de aruite Walking in perfect rhythm
変わらない毎日の中で kawaranai mainichi no naka de amidst these unchanging days
ただ壊れゆく時を待って tada kowareyuku toki o matte just waiting for the moment when I finally break apart,
今日も「前に倣え」・・・? kyou mo "mae ni narae"...? going with the flow today as well

誰のために歩いてるのか dare no tame ni aruiteru no ka For whose sake am I walking?
僅かな疑念が芽生えたら wazuka na ginen ga mebaetara when the smallest of doubts began to take root,
感傷的な機械 (センチメンタル・アンドロイド) senchimentaru andoroido a sentimental android's inner voice:
「さあ、こんな世界など壊せ」 "saa, konna sekai nado kowase" "Come, let's tear this world down"

突然の眩暈が襲って totsuzen no memai ga osotte Struck by a sudden bout of dizziness
一瞬 止まった僕の全て isshun tomatta boku no subete all of me coming to a stop in an instant
完璧な日々はひび割れて kanpeki na hibi wa hibiwarete cracks appearing in those flawless days I lived
心拍 (リズム) を刻み出す rizumu o kizamidasu I begin to carve out my own rhythm
誰のために歩き出そうか dare no tame ni arukidasou ka shall it be for my own?
僕のために歩き出そうか boku no tame ni arukidasou ka for whose sake should I step forth?
感傷的な機械 (センチメンタル・アンドロイド) senchimentaru andoroido a sentimental android
「さあ、【error】(こころ) 受け入れて進め」 "saa, kokoro ukeirete susume" "Come, accept these 'errors' of yours and move forward!"

陰で嘲笑う道化 kage de azawarau douke So sneers the clown behind my back...
