Mr Children: Sono Mukou he Ikou (I’ll Go Beyond It)

August 21, 2008

Sono Mukou he Ikou (I’ll Go Beyond It)

      04.01.30
      Artist: Mr. Children
      Title: Sono Mukou he Ikou (I’ll Go Beyond It)
      Words: Sakurai Kazutoshi
      Music: Sakurai Kazutoshi

      The wall we face is taller than we thought
      even if we whine “this shouldn’t be”, hindsight is 20/20.

      the soul withered away
      a shrivelled baby salami
      once more into a frankfurter

      take shortcake for instance,
      I’m the type who saves the strawberry for last
      I’ve had a good many dreams
      that I drop and discard just before I get them into my mouth.

      I wouldn’t underestimate me,
      ‘impossible’ isn’t in my dictionary
      you heard me, I just haven’t gotten serious yet.

      Yeah, I’m gonna clear it in one shot
      There’s plenty of ways to do it
      I’m gonna go beyond
      where I’m aiming.

      even if the satisfied moan of a woman wriggling her hips
      is a well practiced fake, the type of romantic
      who would go flaccid and cold at that
      could never make it in this world.

      I’ve still got the shits,
      I might be sick
      my worries about the future cross my mind but,

      Yeah, I’m gonna clear it, no problem
      Everybody’s got a different approach,
      I’m gonna go past where I’m looking for.

      Yeah, I’m gonna clear it in one shot
      There’s plenty of ways to do it
      I’m gonna go beyond
      where I’m aiming.
      and then I’ll go home.
