Like usual, kairo offers up some profound lyrics. Is this song about two characters (a king and a nameless god)? Or is it about more than two or less than two?


外はもう寒い
水温は高い

soto wa mou samui
suion wa takai

It’s already so cold outside
Though the water is hot.

名前はまだ無い
仕方ない

namae wa mada nai
shikata nai

I am still nameless.
There’s nothing I can do about it.

それほど退屈はしない
外はやっぱり寒い

sore hodo taikutsu wa shinai
soto wa yappari samui

I’m not that bored
But it sure is cold outside…

私は蛙
井戸の中でまだ生きてる

watashi wa kaeru
ido no naka de mada ikiteru

“I’m a frog.
I’m still living inside a well.”

小さな王様
そうやって生きてる

chiisana ousama
sou yatte ikiteru

A little king lives
Just like that.

名前はもうある
強くはない

namae wa mou aru
tsuyoku wa nai

They’ve already got a name
But they’re not strong.

ちっとも上手くいかない
嘘は少しもない

chitto mo umaku ikanai
uso wa sukishi mo nai

Things don’t go smoothly at all.
They don’t tell a single lie.

私は還る
水へと還って消えてゆく

watashi wa kaeru
mizu e to kaette kiete yuku

“I’m heading home.
I’ll head back to the water and fade away.”

名無しの神様
そうやって消える

nanashi no kamisama
sou yatte kieru

And thus,
The nameless god faded away.

誰がそれを変えるのだろうか
小さな王様

dare ga sore wo kaeru no darou ka
chiisana ousama

Who will change
The little king?

何がそれを殺すか
名無しの神様

nani ga sore wo korosu ka
nanashi wo kamisama

What will kill
The nameless god?

それは遠く古いだけの
最初の話

sore wa tooku furui dake no
saisho no hanashi

This is a tale from the distant past.
It’s the first tale.

いつかここから
始まりへと帰る話

itsuka koko kara
hajimari e to kaeru hanashi

This tale will someday
Return to the beginning from here.
