Mr Children: Monster

Monster

10.14.05
Artist: Mr. Children
Title: Monster
Words: Sakurai Kazutoshi
Music: Sakurai Kazutoshi

I go by ‘Flying Fish’
but i hate Mr. Sun, so I swim under the surface of this city
I try to focus my hate for civilization and whatever
on the building across the way
making it the hideout of my enemies,
the security have ear pieces in,
have begun intensifying their guard
it’s a mission of Love & Peace,
but they don’t actually do anything special.

Knock Knock
is someone there? Open up, won’t you?
Knock Knock
Were you aware? I’m a Monster.

She’s called ‘The Canary’
Doesn’t like to feel other’s eyes on her,
she lives only in her memo notebook
she hasn’t let me hear yet,
but she sings in a beautiful rainbow voice
even without having sex with anyone,
she can have a child
she’s fully naked for religious reasons,
a mericful heart will be the world’s salvation

Knock Knock
is someone there? Let me in, won’t you?
Knock Knock
Haven’t you realized? You’re a monster too.
sooo, how shall we scream?

i’ve searched so long for someone who understands me
you’re pitying me with a sad expression, aren’t you?
but I understand, and soon you will too
It’s alright, It’s alright, it doesn’t hurt, nothing to be afraid of
it’s alright, It’s alright, like me, you’re a monster.

Knock Knock
is someone there? Open up, won’t you?
Knock Knock
Were you aware? I’m a Monster.
Knock Knock
Haven’t you realized? You’re a monster too.
sooo, how shall we scream?
