“TEENAGE CASUALTIES” by Number Girl

TEENAGE CASUALTIES

作詞:MUKAI SHUTOKU

どこかの誰かが優しい声で 恋人にささやく夜
どこかの誰かが散弾銃を ぶっぱなそうか考える夜

学生通りは午後6時 アイツ、自転車でこぎまくって笑いながら
ガールフレンドの家にでも 行くのかな

どこかの誰かに惑わされて アイデンティティを問われる夜
どこかの誰かが自分を待ってる そんな気がして街さすらう夜

さりげなく遠くで聞こえる小学校のグランドのかけ声
昼寝を覚ましたオレは それをすっと聞いていた

どこかの誰かが被害者
どこかの誰かが加害者

Teenage Casualties

Lyrics: Mukai Shutoku
Translation: Alex Fyffe

Somewhere someone whispers sweetly to his lover in the night
Somewhere someone thinks about freeing himself with a shotgun in the night

A student laughs as he races along on his bike at 6 p.m.
Probably on the way to his girlfriend’s house

Somewhere someone is lost and questions his identity in the night
Somewhere someone has the feeling he is waiting for himself, wandering the city at night

From far away I could hear shouts from the elementary school
They woke me from my nap and I listened for a long time

Somewhere someone is the victim
Somewhere someone is the assailant

Notes:

Trans. May of 2007.
