Mr Children: Gitai (Metamorphosis)

April 5, 2012

Gitai (Metamorphosis)

I started out at the bottom
and today ended with the same score
Like a mountain of discounted things
Ash of broken dreams keep piling up

Seems as if tomorrow opened arms with a friendly smile
But then disappears into the haze beyond the ghost ship

I transform into flying fish
who jumps up ‘n down on the asphalt
I bleed but I stretch out far
If I can allow all inevitability and coincidence
To be part of myself
I can get beyond now

My friend has complete opposite senses and interests than me
And he hates all things ordinary
I kind of envy that

I desperately washed my hands
But they are still covered in deep red blood
I’m agonized and awakened by myself whom I killed long ago

Supplements that promised the results in chorus
All turned into bubble and disappeared in the stomach
If I can allow all lies and truth to be part of myself
I can be more beautiful

Do you really think those with wealth
are more content than ones without?
Who decided those with disabilities
aren’t freer than ones without?
Not by eyes not by ears
But we must use something else to see and hear
Or else we overlook everything that’s transformed

Seems as if hope extended its hands with a kind smile
And it’s floating beyond the horizon

I transform into flying fish
who jumps up ‘n down on the asphalt
I bleed but I stretch out far
If we can allow all bluff and honesty
To be part of ourselves
We can be stronger
We can get beyond now…
