Sample of Bonjin

聡明ね そうね 聖人ね うそね
soumei ne – sou ne – shoujin ne – uso ne
So wise! That’s right! A saint! All lies!

やれ今日も風を誘って 白い袖が僕を覗く
拾う神ありなんてのは 捨てる奴前提って事か 愚か
yare kyou mo kaze wo usotte – shiroi sode ga boku wo nozoku
hirou kami ari nante no wa – suteru yatsu zentei tte koto ka – oroka
Oh! I call for the wind today too. The white sleeve peeking at me
Is the existence of gods something that should be abandoned? That’s ridiculous

動悸・目眩・その他諸々 いっときの恥 所詮唯の恋煩い
douki – memai – sono hoka moromoro – ittoki no haji – shosen tada no koiwazurai
Thumping, dizziness, things like that… I feel ashamed, as it’s just simply lovesickness

捏ね繰り回せ僕の欲望 何か悪かったですね、平凡で。
罵られ捨てる 無数の自己を 今宵も耐え忍んで愛撫
kone kurimawase boku no yokubou – nanka warukatta desune, heibon de.
nonoshirare suteru – musuu no jiko wo – koyoi mo taeshinonde aibu

My desires mixing and turning. Terrible, don’t you think? It’s so ordinary.
I insulted and threw myself away countless times. Tonight I again suffer from this affection

聡明ね そうね 聖人ね うそね
soume ne – sou ne – shoujin ne – uso ne
So wise! That’s right! A saint! All lies!

いやぁ、どうもおかしい筈で 休み明けに笑顔のパレード
経験値上がってるよね これだから“リアル”ってやつは嫌じゃ
iyaa, doumo okashii hazu de – yasumiake ni egao no pareedo
keikenchi agatteru yo ne – kore dakara “riaru” tte yatsu wa ia ja

Ugh, it’s supposed to be weird, so soon after a parade of smiles
It just adds to all the experience. This is why I hate this so called “realism”

君と帰り道に食した 金時の味 甘い苦い蜜の味
kimi to kaerimichi ni shokushita – kintoki no aji – amai nigai mitsu no aji
On the way back we ate, tasting sweet potato and bitter-sweet nectar

決死の覚悟も虚しく無駄
既に終わった話じゃ、どうしようもねぇ
どこにでもある普通のエピソード
大きく振りかぶってファール
kesshi no kakugo mo munashiku muda
sude ni owatta hanashi ja, doushiyou mo nee
doko ni de mo aru futsuu no episoodo
ookiku furikabutte faaru
It’s completely pointless being ready for death
The story is already over, so now what?
This simple ordinary episode
Winding up for a big foul

不純 批判したいよ受け入れ難くて
きっと僕ならもっと上手くやれるのになぁ
嘆く 家庭環境・生まれ・土地柄
もしもここじゃ無かったら違ってたのになぁ
fujun – hihan shitai yo ukeire katakute
kitto boku nara motto umaku yareru no ni naa
nageku – kateikankyou – umare – tochigara
moshimo koko ja nakattara chigatte ta no ni naa
Dishonesty. I criticize it, since it’s so difficult to accept
Though, surely I can do better
I lament… My home, my birth, my origins…
If it weren’t for this place, it would’ve been different

一晩中考えても無駄 所詮誰かの真似
どこかで聞いたようなフレーズ
また低評価→焦る
hitobanjuu kangaete mo muda – shosen dare ka no mane
doko ka de kiita you na fureezu
mata teihyouka > aseru
Thinking all night long, but it’s no use. I’m simply copying someone else after all
That’s a phrase that I’ve heard somewhere before
Again such a bad reputation, so I ran

捏ね繰り回せ僕の欲望 えらい申し訳ないね、凡人で。
どこにでもいるモブの象徴 今宵も恥忍んで生きろ
ukune kurimawase boku no yokubou – erai moushiwakenai ne, bonjin de.
doko ni de mo iru mobu no shouchou – koyoi mo haji shinonde ikiro

My desires mixing and turning. I’m deeply sorry for being such an ordinary person.
The symbolization of a simple background characters. Tonight I again hide and life in shame

聡明ね そうね 聖人ね うそね
soume ne – sou ne – shoujin ne – uso ne
So wise! That’s right! A saint! All lies!
