      the puzzle scattered all over the floor
      not getting solved anytime soon
      I’m sort of resentful of it, but there’s nothing I can do
      I don’t even want to know
      what it’s supposed to look like anymore.
      it’s pretty much art just as it is
      I’ll learn to appreciate the underlying meaning
      to its randomness

      red, white, blue, yellow
      oh, I know, i’ll drink a beer
      I reach for the black and gold label
      try to drink it all in one gulp
      ah ah ah
      ahh this, is living.

      when someone tells me it looks like things are pretty good
      I start to think so too
      the wings, that were tucked away, are about to open
      ‘they look delicate, but actually they’re tough’
      your words are so touching, they put me on the verge of tears

      even if I play the piano only sound comes out
      it could never reach you
      oh, I know, let’s go to the pool tomorrow
      in that clean water, I’ll go diving
      no matter how tough it gets, as far, as far as I can
      ah ah ah
      ahh this, is living
      ahh this, is living

      Translator’s Notes: When you play the piano, what’s SUPPOSED to come out?
      Did you guess yet? MUSIC, not SOUND.
