Translated Lyric: (Lightly referenced from zcatcracker’s translation)
Amassing ‘meanings’, ‘dreams’ and ‘life’, the body had been manufactured. Apparently this is a machine that brings up an ended life. [This is the story about that guy’s past.] Each and every one of them was weeping, muttering about want to see the person again. The experiment about the end in the papier mache town was too flaccid yesterday, as predicted. At this point wouldn’t it better to give it up? The next couple, from a cranny of the town, had seen that kind of aquatic colored dream. Contrary to expectation, ahead the road lane, the tiny body again flew off and scattered. I, who didn’t awake, was watching the girl shouting and crying. The second hand of clock stops advancing, and tries to overwhelm, darken the world with it. This dream does not end. *********
The sounds of the withering sun; the eyes under the swelter-full blazing flare; seem like they were forced out from the summer heated world. Even if the noise of cicadas already starts stridulating, with this wobbling transparent body, the stretching hand wouldn’t ever reach them. Contrary to expectation, ahead of the sight, second hand of clock being facetious and halts. From the opposite site of the road lane, I was watching the futures being trampled and squashed. Escape from the mechanized world, to the scene of the future where leaves of trees fall. With your eyes… The sneering sunlight vanished somewhere else; August comes and passes, over and over; “See you next year” as laughing to each other; With this kind of future, then…?
Cobbling ‘meanings’, ‘dreams’, and ‘circumstances’, the head only just thinks. Contrary to expectation, in a nook of the world; “Seems like this world appear to be a little too the rain, in contrary to the forecast, starts falling. At that time… At that time then... dangerous.” [This is the story about him and her.] With this heart which was manufactured, no words could reach it anymore.
Even if the exemplary future rewrites, those Eyes would…
Short Lyric Summary & PV facts: (Duplicated from the means of lyric and what shown on PV)
An artificial body had been manufactured; for the purpose of resurrect a dead life. It is described that the body experiences of watching incidents happening in different world, without actually being awake (similar with being OOBE). He had been watching the incidents involving deaths (of the couple mentioned in [Kagerou Daze]), in a flaccid ‘papier mache’ town (which is most probably the world mentioned in [Headphone Actor]). The world and the incident repeat over and over again, as he ‘dreams’. He is powerless to prevent any of these; all he could do is only watch them happen into the worse. He tires on watching these nightmares, and hopes the future could be full of happiness for the peoples involving inside the ‘world’.
