Oboreru Sakana (溺れる魚) Lyrics

僕はいつか 窒息するだろう
愛も夢も何もかも光も見えないから
呼吸するのも忘れて 泳ぎ疲れて
溺れる魚

光を忘くした 盲目なもぐら
飛べない鳥は 何を歌う?
とっぷり沈んだ太陽は
明日も僕を焼くのでしょう

あの日、僕が口にした言葉に
何一つ 嘘は無かったと思う
一秒でも長く 一秒でも長く
一緒にいたいと思っていたんだ

愛しさ故に気でも狂いそうで
理由や理屈じゃ計れやしない
失う事への恐れはあったけれど
考えぬように おどけて見せていた

もう 全てに疲れたと
君は 一言 呟いて
僕達の過去は 嘘色に変わった
散り散りになって 真っ白に還った

いつからだろうか 魚の目は白く濁り
この街の流れにもはじかれて
おどけてみたって 笑えやしないだろう
あの日の少年は 大人になっていた

今になって思うのだけれど
あの日に僕は 何もかも 死んでしまったのでしょう
記憶は僕に圧し掛かり
事実は 僕への 刃に変わった

懐かしむ事は 弱い行為ですか?
でも すがることしか 今は出来ず
死にたくたって 死ねやしない
惨めな僕を笑ってくれるかい?

僕はいつか 窒息するだろう
愛も夢も何もかも光も見えないから
呼吸するのも忘れて 泳ぎ疲れて
溺れる魚

I’ll probably suffocate someday

No love, no dreams, there’s nothing left since I can’t see the light

I’ll forget how to breathe when I get tired of swimming
A drowning fish

A blind mole that’s lost the light

What does a flightless bird sing about?

The sun that’s gone down will
Probably burn me again tomorrow

That day, the words that left my mouth

I don’t think any of it was a lie

Yet a second later, yet a second later
I was thinking how painful it was for us to be together

Even having the best of intentions at heart seems crazy

I don’t have any motives or reasons to deceive you

Even though I was in danger of losing you
I tried to make light of things without thinking

I’ve already grown tired of it all

You murmured a single word

Our past was tinted with lies
Scattered and turned white

How long has the fish’s eyes been cloudy?

Repelled even by the flow of this town

I try to joke about it but you probably won’t laugh
The boy from that day’s grown up

Though now I start to think

I just about died that day

My memories are a burden
Reality turned into a blade towards me

Is missing you a display of weakness?

But I’m incapable of doing anything but cling to you
Even if I want to die, I won’t end up dead

Will you laugh at how pathetic I am?

I’ll probably suffocate someday

No love, no dreams, there’s nothing left since I can’t see the light

I’ll forget how to breathe when I get tired of swimming
A drowning fish



Translator's Notes: Well, obviously sound-wise this song is very different than the rest of the album. Almost folk-y with the acoustic guitars (and if I'm allowed to be biased, this is actually one of my fave songs on Kuchiki). Also a break-up song...but after quite a bit of time has passed. This song gives a great sense of a person who's gotten older, perhaps a little more mature in some matters, but not necessarily much wiser. The narrator is trying to express how he thought his decision would have been better for both of them and that while he'd been rather casual about things at the time, he does regret his choice quite a bit. Also, if I'm going to stand by my theory that it's supposed to be the same narrator through the whole album, one might think the ex he's talking to is the person he expected would save him in "Akatsuki Yami". And/or also the person he left behind at the end of "Gentou Sanka." Though there he felt there was no one worth staying around for. That would apparently not be the case.

Though now too much time has evidently passed for him to salvage the old relationship. Though he still expects this person to be the one to fix everything for him. Unfortunately, our dear narrator is not an especially strong or brave person (at least not in his mind). When he says "Even if I want to die, I won't end up dead" he's trying to say even if he thought of killing himself, he doesn't even have the guts to actually do it. So he's stuck in this sort of limbo of being unable to change or move forward. He can't even let go of this ex. So to really put things in perspective, just think of the idea of a "drowning fish." This isn't quite intended to be an oxymoron, per say. It puts me in mind of something that is defeated or fails at being/doing exactly what it was meant to do. Fish shouldn't drown, obviously. Should be the most natural thing in the world.

Yet it's being exactly who he is that will do our narrator in.

...Yeah, I really do love this song quite a bit. ^_^
