Unknown Mother-Goose

Featuring Miku

"Long time no see, it's me, wowaka."

If I was to express my love,
How exactly would it be projected on those eyes?
Words are always nothing but excessive,
A pure sound streams on...
Until you are smeared entirely with love,
That colour is but a mirage.
All alone, when I am engulfed by sound,
It is universal delight.

A livelihood indulging in boring stupefaction,
Everyone traces after him
Yet again I plugged up my ears,
Against a repeating, reused song
If you are to express your love,
Will that then be used as your answer?
If you’re pretending to have closed your eyes,
Then please open them with this song!

I think of nothing but that story unknown to all,
I embraced it close and danced, shedding tears, to the point of almost breaking
If a sentimental argument void of distinction is allowed then...
I have a heart seemingly on the verge of breaking apart,
That I swallowed back down, unable to even burst into tears
-- Let me scream that!

Even if the world rejects me,
Right now, I wonder if you won’t let me sing a song of love?
I wonder if it’s ok to try and entrust those feelings,
Unknown to all, upon this voice one more time?

Can you see me?
Can you see me?
That back,
That got nothing but junk thrown at it,
If even then they were able to say they loved it
If even then they were able to wish for love
Aa, perhaps that says
That meaning lies in my everything --


(Pick me up, Pick me up again)
(Pick me up, Pick me up again)
(Pick me up, Pick me up again)
(Pick me up, Pick me up again)

Hey, if you’re going to express your love,
Right now, exactly who is it inside of your heart?
Wrenching open the box holding your heart, come on-
Show yourself who is an exact lookalike, to me?
If I can become "love"
Then what colour is that colour now.
Loneliness cannot be sorted out by a symbol,
I lived shouldering my own heart!

Pseudo-doppelgangers overflowed over there
And finally, today, at the end of it all;
Liela lie lie!
They, who created those things void of heart
Give up and wash their hands of it all;
Bye b-bye bye!
You, left behind,
Are in this place even now
Holding back your tears
Why, oh why?
I know --
That this place has been protected
By you all along!

I’ve grown far too accustomed to pain and the like
The joy anger grief and pleasure that I continued to circle through,
Thousands upon thousands of times
If the joy I can’t part with is in this world
Will I end up turning even that unrelinquishable grief
Into a black sheep within this heart?
I sure wouldn’t like that!

Just how can I love this world?
Am I gonna be continuing to roll on forever?
Hey, I think
I might as well take those feelings unnoticed by all
And reveal them to the world with this song.

What would you wish for?
What would you desire for?
My heart, creaking, lives in this moment more than anyone else's
Can you see me?
Can you see me?
Is that, the light that illuminates my future path?


Hey, if you’re gonna scream about your love
I’ll be right here
Words may be excessive, but,
This dream continues on
If I was to express my love
That everything is this song.
This story unknown to all,
It seems I’ve gone and hummed it once again.

Fun(?) Fact: This was wowaka's last song before he died due to a heart condition.
