社会の底辺で這い擦り廻る 隣で友達が餓えて死んだ
溜息が未来を曇らせて往く 革命歌が虚しく響く そして平和に火を灯す

心無い大人が僕等を隔離する 僕等は略奪に手を染めて往く

僕等は生きる為に理由を探します 僕等は生きる為に理由を探します

上野駅地下道で眠りに就く 隣で友達が凍えて死んだ
溜息が未来を曇らせて往く 革命歌が虚しく響く そして平和に火を灯す

心無い大人が僕等を隔離する 僕等は略奪に手を染めて往く

光輝く理想は全て馬鹿げた事でした

僕等は生きる為に理由を探します 僕等は生きる為に理由を探します

生命に縋り付いて理由を探します 生命に縋り付いて理由を探します

Translation
Added by: leighLa

I creep around at the bottom of society My friend starved to death beside me
Sighs are clouding the future The song of revolution echoes in vain And I set fire to the peace

Cruel adults isolate us We keep dabbling in thievery

We search for a reason to live We search for a reason to live

In the subway tunnels of Ueno Station I fall asleep My friend froze to death beside me
Sighs are clouding the future The song of revolution echoes in vain And I set fire to the peace

Cruel adults isolate us We keep dabbling in thievery

Shining ideals were all foolish things

We search for a reason to live We search for a reason to live

We cling to our lives and search for a reason We cling to our lives and search for a reason



¹ Kotetsu is a name. Jojo hasn't made it clear who the name refers to, but those few tips for interpretation we have include Kotetsu refering to a former swordmaker Nagasone Kotetsu, who lived in Edo period. He only took on the name when he became a buddhist priest in Kaneiji Temple that is located in Ueno, right next to Yanaka Cementary, which is one of the points of a magic square later created by Meiji government. For more refer to the Muen footnotes here. Another speculation is the name refers to one of the main characters from a manga and anime series Tiger and Bunny that happens to be one of Andy's favourites (he composed the song).
