It seems like there are a few other translations of this song out there on Youtube, but I thought I’d try to approach it from a different angle to help us get closer to the song’s core.

‘Delusion Sentimentality Compensation Federation’ appears to be the song’s official English title, though it’s not entirely clear who the federation actually is. It could be the two lovers this song is based on, or it could even be a group of emotions, banding together inside one of the partners to try and turn their dreams into reality.

Either way, I think one of the partners isn’t happy with their relationship. I feel like they’re not being honest with each other, lying to themselves and to each other by saying that everything’s “just fine” when it isn’t.

言っちゃった
もう一時だけ隣りに居たい
いやいやまさか 延長は鬱雑い
御免なさい 帰ってね
二酸化の炭素 きみの濃度

icchatta
mou chotto dake tonari ni itai
iya iya masaka enchou wa uzai
gomennasai kaette ne
nisanka no tanso kimi no noudo

I said it:
“I want to be by your side for a little longer.”
No, no, prolonging it is annoying.
I’m sorry. You’re heading home, right?
You’re dense, like carbon dioxide…

浸ってたいよ 泥沼の夢に
身勝手だって言われてもペロリ
不安じゃない 未来はない
その顔に生まれ変わりたいな

hitattetai yo doronuma no yume ni
migatte datte iwarete mo perori
fuan ja nai mirai wa nai
sono kao ni umare kawaritai na

I want to be submerged in a swampy dream!
Even if I’m called selfish, I’ll just stick out my tongue.
I’m not anxious. I have no future.
I want to be born again with such an expression…

知っちゃった
大嫌いを裏返したとて
そこに大好きは隠れてないと
叶えたい この想い
甘え過ぎ太る心回り

shicchatta
daikirai wo uragaeshita tote
soko ni daisuki wa kakuretenai to
kanaetai kono omoi
amae sugi futoru kokoro mawari

I realised it:
Even if you flip the words “I hate you” inside out,
“I love you” won’t be hidden inside.
I want my feelings to bear fruit…
How naïve! They circle through my fat heart.

“ファット想い→スリム”を掲げよう
出逢った頃と同じ様に成ろう
思い笑描く理想狂
血走る願いはやがて安堵

“fatto omoi surimu” wo kakageyou
deatta koro to onaji you ni narou
omoi egaku risoukyou
chibashiru negai wa yagate ando

I’ll turn these fat feelings → slim.
Let’s make things like they were when we met.
I remember your smile and feel madly idealistic,
And gain relief from my bloodshot desires.

だけど「大丈夫」なんて恋はどこにもないの

dakedo “daijoubu” nante koi wa doko ni mo nai no

Still, love that’s “just fine” doesn’t exist.

だから妄想感傷代償連盟
愛を懐いて理想を号んだ
行き場のない愚者のメロディー
再挑戦・転生・テレポーテーション
何回だって 重ねて逝くんだ
終わりなき愛の隨に さあ

dakara mousou kanshou daishou renmei
ai wo idaite risou wo sakenda
ikiba no nai gusha no merodii
saichousen tensei terepooteeshon
nankai datte kasanete yukun da
owari naki ai no manimani saa

So, the Delusion Sentimentality Compensation Federation
Embraced love and declared their ideals
Singing a song of fools with nowhere to go.
Retry, reincarnation, teleportation.
We keep trying, but it keeps dying
At the mercy of endless love.

愛や厭

ai ya iya

I can’t stand love.

頑張った
どうしようもないその我儘
叶えた先にある謎自恋魔
怒ってる? …怒ってない。
阿吽の呼吸でズレるビート

ganbatta
dou shiyou mo nai sono wagamama
kanaeta saki ni aru nazo jirenma
okotteru? …okottenai.
aun no kokyuu de zureru biito

I did my best.
I can’t help this selfishness.
Even after bearing fruit, a mysterious dilemma remains.
“Are you mad?” “…I’m not.”
We’re in harmony, yet we’re out of sync.

これがもし映画やドラマなら
スタッフロールまでは乗り切れど
二度とは観たくない
酷すぎる起承 転も結も

kore ga moshi eiga ya dorama nara
sutaffu rooru made wa norikiredo
nido to wa mitakunai
hido sugiru kishou ten mo ketsu mo

If this was a film or a TV drama,
Then though I’d endure it until the credits,
I wouldn’t want to watch it again.
It had an awful beginning, middle, and end.

だけど「大丈夫」なんて恋を信じて仕舞うよ

dakedo “daijoubu” nante koi o shinjite shimau yo

Still, I ended up believing in love that’s “just fine.”

だから通称:愛情対象年齢
愛を悪んで守った位相が
正しく歪み始めるの
最低じゃん どうせ対人ローション
何回だって 傷付け合うんだ
混ざり合う愛のフィロソフィー

dakara tsuushou: aijou taishou nenrei
ai wo nikunde mamotta isou ga
tadashiku yugami hajimeru no
saitei jan douse taijin rooshon
nankai datte kizutsuke au nda
mazari au ai no firosofii

So this is known as the age of seeking love.
This phase, in which I hated and protected love,
Begins to properly distort.
It’s the worst! It’s like an interpersonal lubricant.
We’ll just keep hurting each other over and over
While our philosophies of love mix together.

だけど「大丈夫」なんて嘘を覚えて仕舞うの

dakedo “daijoubu” nante uso wo oboete shimau no

Still, I ended up memorising lies, like “I’m fine.”

だから妄想感傷代償連盟
愛を懐いて理想を号んだ
行き場のない愚者のメロディー
再挑戦・転生・テレポーテーション
何回だって 重ねて逝くんだ
終わりなき愛の隨に さあ

dakara mousou kanshou daishou renmei
ai wo idaite risou wo sakenda
ikiba no nai gusha no merodii
saichousen tensei terepooteeshon
nankai datte kasanete iku nda

Embraced love and declared their ideals
Singing a song of fools with nowhere to go.
Retry, reincarnation, teleportation.
We keep trying, but it keeps dying
At the mercy of endless love.

This phase, in which I hated and protected love,
Begins to properly distort.
It’s the worst! It’s like an interpersonal lubricant.
We’ll just keep hurting each other over and over
While our philosophies of love mix together. Now…

愛や厭

ai ya iya

I can’t stand love…
