Mr Children: I’ll Be

August 5, 2008

I’ll be

04.07.20
Artist: Mr. Children
Title: I’ll be
Words: Sakurai Kazutoshi
Music: Sakurai Kazutoshi

On that day I noticed my confident stride, I tried to breathe deeply.
As I sang with the wind swimming in my T-shirt,
like a dry unhealed desert, I would be swallowed whole
today, only this vague image supports me.

The city like a diorama, I can see the top floor of the building
Can you see the flying clouds changing shape ?
Today it seems like an elephant, tomorrow a lion
Never able to catch my heart
This is my freedom

I’ll nail my proof of living to this age
as I make useless struggles in my meager soul.
However many times I may blunder its okay
Wake death up to live again everyday revolution
Life is freestyle, and loneliness is perseverance
kiss people who want to make fun of you
And then always I’ll say yes
I’ll be there.

As I chewed up the one peanut, the feelings I swallowed
in the dead of night burned my blood and knocked all over my body.

We should remove the eyemasks that we wear on our hearts
we should make anxiety and bewilderment our best friends
It’s like we go on a road trip and there’s no tomorrow
as it rends your chest, step by step advance and
you’ll always be enthusiastic.

Ashamed of myself, held at gunpoint
I’d rather leave everything behind than
choose a neutral way. Even my complex so called ” motivation ”
And then one day I too will be dead
I’ll be back.

In a world of negotiation, in a dust chute
I toss away that which I gained.
I spread out the map without details, I want to wait for tomorrow.

As fast as you can, flying over that borderline
as you worry about your bad posture,
the direction of the wind acts as support.
