Translation
(from Mognet – Japanese Translation Group)

Society is full of people caught up in complexities
Give it your best in the system, salary man
Armed with knowledge, education, and business cards
You support the Japan of tomorrow

And you
You even have dinner in the office alone, eating instant food
But the hard worker is never rewarded

Three years since she’s been in Tokyo, for her it was a chance
Because of a steady diet
She strikes a seductive pose in front of the camera
And in bed, she straddles the company president

Oh you
Nevertheless you are a dreaming movie star
A naive person who knows nothing about society
Trusting as usual

Everybody goes, everybody fights
A drop kick to these unorderly days
Everybody knows, everybody wants, but no no no no
Everything is wrong

For my only daughter whom I love
I did whatever I thought was good for her
Even when my neighbors called me an education fanatic
My household has been pretty peaceful these eighteen years

But you
Your daughter goes to date club and not school
And when she gets back home, she’s a goody-goody again
Playing the role of a sweet young lady

Everybody goes, everybody fights
A chop to the horizon to these shameless teenagers
Everybody knows, everybody wants, but yes yes yes yes
I will survive

Ah, the people at work who can’t do it will say it like this
“He’s changed, that conceited guy”
So I’ll try that much harder

Everybody goes, everybody fights
A drop kick to the tedious hit chart
Everybody knows, everybody wants
Just what is a bright future?
Everybody goes, everybody fights
A chop to the horizon to these unorderely days
Everybody knows, everybody wants, but no no no no
Everything is wrong
I will survive

Romaji (by LunaLux)
Everybody goes ~chitsujo no nai gendai ni Drop Kick~

Fukuzatsu ni kongaragatta shakai da
Soshiki no naka de ganbare sarariiman
Chishiki to kyouyou to meishi wo buki ni
Anata ga sasaeru ashita no nippon

Soshite you
Banmeshi mo shanai de hitori insutanto fuudo tabeten da
Ganbariyasan mukuwarenai kedo

Joukyou shite sannen kanojo ni surya chance
Jimichi na daietto no kai mo atte
Kamera no mae de nayamashige na poozu
Soshite beddo ja shacho no ue ni matagatte

Oh you
Sore demo yume miteru muubii sutaa
Seken shirazu no ohitoyoshisan
Aikawarazu shinjiteru

Everybody goes everybody fights
Chitsujo no nai gendai ni doroppu kikku
Everybody knows everybody wants demo no no no no
Minna yanderu

Ai suru hitori musume no tame ni
Yokare to omou koto wa yatte kita
Kyouiku mama to kinjo ni yobaretemo
Kekkyoku katei enman na kono juuhachinenkan

Demo you
Musume wa gakkou fukete deeto kurabu
De, ie ni kaerya mata orikousan
Karen na shoujo enjite

Everybody goes everbody fights
Shuuchishin no nai juudai ni suihei choppu
Everybody knows everbody wants soshite yes yes yes yes
Hisshi de ikiteru

Ah shigoto no dekinai renchuu wa kou iu
Aitsu wa kawatta umeboreyasan
Konna ni ganbatteru no ni

Everybody goes everybody fights
Taikutsu na hitto chaato ni doroppu kikku
Everybody knows everybody wants
Akarui mirai tte nan dakke?
Everybody goes everybody fights
Chitsujo no nai gendai ni suihei choppu
Everybody knows everybody wants demo no no no no
Minna yanderu
Hisshi de ikiteru

    i love his real-life songs… i remember reading the lyrics to arifureta love story and thinking “wow, people write songs like this?” reminded me of some of Blur’s early albums.

    This was off the same album wasn’t it?

    I can’t remember where exactly but I read (somewhere) that they wrote (or rearranged the sequence of the songs, can’t remember which one exactly) the Shinkai album backwards conceptually i.e. starting with the end of the relationship (Tegami & arifureta) and then worked their way to re-telling how they met, how they fell in love, how they broke up and the day-to-day things that happened in between etc. That’s why the album felt like one big love story, it was intended to be that way.

    The idea flowed into the next album Bolero, which was also written conceptually.
