Mr Children: Hedatari

August 5, 2008

Hedatari (The Distance Between Things)

10.08.05
Artist: Mr. Children
Title: Hedatari (The Distance Between Things)
Words: Sakurai Kazutoshi
Music: Sakurai Kazutoshi

that day you were averse
to the distance created by a mere 0.05mm
of synthetic rubber
and I complied
it’s not that I’m afraid of disease
more like your innermost feelings
but they’re not unwelcome
and I complied
now a tender warmth
engulfs the night
like it was enchanted
I don’t believe in UFOs
and I’ve nothing to do with God
but we hold something
invisible to the naked eye
you are the beautiful spider
I’m the winged insect
and I’ll dare to fly
into your web
there are times in this world
when people wish
they’d never known
but I want to know more
I want to know love inside and out
that day you were averse
that day you were averse
to the distance created by a mere 0.05mm
of synthetic rubber
and I complied

Translated By: Brian Stewart & Takako Sakuma

Translator’s Notes: Title is a tricky one. It refers to a distant between
two things. In this case it’s the exact breadth of a condom applied to the
sexual organ of a man, and inserted into… well, you get the picture.

Romaji

tatta rei ten rei go miri
gousei gomu no hedatari wo
sono hi kimi ha iyagatta
boku ha sore ni oujiru
kowai no ha byouki jyanai
kimi ga mune ni himeta omoi
dakedo iya na kibun jyanai
boku ha sore ni oujiru
yawarakai taion ga ima
yoru wo tsutsumu
mahou ni kakatta mitai da
UFO nante shinjinai
kamisama mo boku to kankei nai
dakedo me ni ha
mienai mono wo
bokura dakishimeru
kimi ha utsukushiki supaida-
hanemushi ga boku
aete tobi konde
ikunda
shiranai hou ga yokatta to
omou koto ga konoyo ni aru
dakedo motto shiritai
fukaku made ai wo shiritai
tatta rei ten rei go miri
gousei gomu no hedatari wo
sono hi kimi ha iyagatta
boku ha sore ni oujiru

    this song has been playing in my head all day. I had to look at the transliteration again to figure why it has been hounding me.
