I ended up not liking this album as much as I wanted to, which I was quite upset about because I really enjoyed the demo. What’s wrong with me…?

Well, I enjoyed Fullbokko a lot, so that’s some sort of compensation, I guess. I’m looking forward to getting a copy of Sachlich, too!

Putting those unneeded personal reflections aside, this track seems to operate on both a personal and universal level. The speaker seems to talk from the perspective of a human, and from the perspective of one who looks down on humans…

どんだけ求め どんだけ求め どんだけ求めて
どんだけ千切れ どんだけ千切れ どんだけ千切れて

don dake motome don dake motome don dake motomete
don dake chigire don dake chigire don dake chigirete

How long have I searched? How long have I searched? How long have I searched?
How torn up is it? How torn up is it? How torn up is it?

もう消え去ってしまった舟 何処へも漕げず
もう目に見えなくなった夢 忘れ去られて
そう人は大なり小なりと身勝手な故
もう不都合な真実を亡きものとする

mou kiesatte shimatta fune doko e mo kogezu
mou me ni mienaku natta yume wasuresararete
sou hito wa dainari shounari to migatte na yue
mou futsugou na shinjitsu wo naki mono to suru

Their vessel has long vanished. They cannot row it anywhere.
They left behind dreams that were no longer in sight.
Yes – because humans are egotistical beings,
They part with truths that are no longer convenient.

渡り鳥 楽園の方へ
仮初めの自由を手に 羽を広げて すすり鳴いてた

wataridori rakuen no hou e
karisome no jiyuu wo te ni hane wo hirogete susuri naiteta

Birds of passage head toward paradise.
Obtaining temporary freedom, they spread their wings and sobbed.

手に入れた者だけが失う怖さを知っていた
揺れ揺られ繰り返す 己だけの楽園
どんだけ求め どんだけ求め どんだけ求めて
どんだけ千切れ どんだけ千切れ どんだけ千切れて

te ni ireta mono dake ga ushinau kowasa wo shitte ita
yure yurare kurikaesu onore dake no rakuen
don dake motome don dake motome don dake motomete
don dake chigire don dake chigire don dake chigirete

I knew fear that only those who experience it part with
And I kept trembling in this paradise for me alone.
How long have I searched? How long have I searched? How long have I searched?
How torn up is it? How torn up is it? How torn up is it?

そう人生は宇宙旅行 見果てぬ飛行
そう無重力の中でも足場求めて

sou jinsei wa uchuu ryokou mihatenu hikou
sou mujuuryoku no naka demo ashiba motomete

That’s right – life is a voyage through space. It’s an endless journey.
That’s right – even in zero gravity, humans search for a foothold…

空を行く足跡は消え
気づいたら叫び声も届かないまま 聞こえないまま

sora wo yuku ashiato wa kie
kidzuitara sakebigoe mo todokanai mama kikoenai mama

I travelled through the sky and my footprints faded away.
I realised that my cries still couldn’t reach you. They still couldn’t be heard.

夢ばかり見る者と夢など見れない者達の
中の道抜けたまま 失われた楽園
どんだけ求め どんだけ求め どんだけ求めて
どんだけ千切れ どんだけ千切れ どんだけ千切れて

yume bakari miru mono to yume nado mirenai monotachi no
naka no michi nuketa mama ushinawareta rakuen
don dake motome don dake motome don dake motomete
don dake chigire don dake chigire don dake chigirete

A lost paradise exists away from the middle road
Between those who only dream and those who cannot dream.
How long have I searched? How long have I searched? How long have I searched?
How torn up is it? How torn up is it? How torn up is it?

「あの頃は良かったな」 綺麗に着飾る過去達を
並べ眺めてぼやく それも一つ楽園

“ano koro wa yokatta na” kirei ni kikazaru kakotachi wo
narabe nagamete boyaku sore mo hitotsu rakuen

“Things were so good back then.” I line up prettily decorated pasts
Then stare at them and mumble. That, too, is a form of paradise.

手に入れた者だけが失う怖さを知っていた
揺れ揺られ繰り返す 己だけの楽園
どんだけ求め どんだけ求め どんだけ求めて
どんだけ千切れ どんだけ千切れ どんだけ千切れて

te ni ireta mono dake ga ushinau kowasa wo shitte ita
yure yurare kurikaesu onore dake no rakuen
don dake motome don dake motome don dake motomete
don dake chigire don dake chigire don dake chigirete

I knew fear that only those who experience it part with.
I kept trembling in this paradise for me alone.
How long have I searched? How long have I searched? How long have I searched?
How torn up is it? How torn up is it? How torn up is it?
