What a great way to end the album. I really enjoy Paprika’s more ambient vocal arrangements, and they form such a good contrast to Comp’s style.


連綿と続く毎日
隙間に感じる綻び

renmen to tsudzuku mainichi
sukima ni kanjiru hokorobi

These days continue on forever.
I feel open seams in the intervals between them.

舞い踊って人に見られ
満たされるはずのこころに

maiodotte hito ni mirare
mitasareru hazu no kokoro ni

I dance and am seen by people.
Inside my heart, which should have been fulfilled—

生まれ宿る感情 仮面を迷う
どれが相応しいのかわからないまま 明日も

umare yadoru kanjou kamen wo mayou
dore ga fusawashii no ka wakaranai mama asu mo

Emotions are born and then dwell in my masks. I hesitate over them.
I don’t know which one is suitable… Tomorrow will be the same.

押し付けられた希望 絶望と変わらない
亡くした希望の意味は 拾った人が決める

oshitsukerareta kibou zetsubou to kawaranai
nakushita kibou no imi wa hirotta hito ga kimeru

When forced upon someone, hope is no different to despair.
The meaning of lost hope is determined by the one who picks it up.

今でもまだ不安になることがある
ただの道具に戻る 日が来るかもと
こんな気持ち初めて 仮面を纏う
これが人間味なら 感情は悪じゃない
ひとかけらを拾って すこし笑えた、明日も

ima demo mada fuan ni naru koto ga aru
tada no dougu ni modoru hi ga kuru kamo to
konna kimochi hajimete kamen wo matou
kore ga ningen-mi nara kanjou wa aku ja nai
hitokakera wo hirotte sukoshi waraeta, asu mo

Even now, I still grow uneasy
since I might return to being just a tool someday.
When I feel that way, I put on a mask.
If this is human kindness, then emotions aren’t evil.
I picked up a fragment and I could smile a bit. Tomorrow will be the same.
