23rd Monster (lyrics)

23rd Monster

Try, gentle, like a ripple,
I dreamt that kind of false dream
Having my path blocked completely
is obviously something Iím very used to

Itís insane no matter how you slice it
Itís called A ĎMonsterí

Whatís normal has been rewritten
and the time for pessimism has passed already

Accept it?
Bare my fangs?
Am I staring at the end or the beginning?

It looks like our options have declined
but in a way they may have become infinite, right?

Stranger,
I have no interest in your judgement
The conclusion is up to me

Fly, exhausted and worn down hearts
Itís not like weíve lost everything, not yet
Screw Ďfalling in lineí
Thatís what your eyes are clearly telling me

Trying everything and going down in a blaze of glory is preferable, right?
Youíre also A ĎMonsterí

Times have become uncertain
and whatís certain has become clear

Will you hold fast?

What will you discard?
That future has this current past

Only pushing forward isnít strength
Thereís no way that letting go is easy

Darling,
donít blame it on anyone
The conclusion is up to you

Whatís normal has been rewritten
and the time for pessimism has passed already

Accept it?
Bare my fangs?
Am I staring at the end or the beginning?

It looks like our options have declined
but in a way they may have become infinite, right?

Stranger,
I have no interest in your judgement

Times have become uncertain
and whatís certain has become clear

Will you hold fast?

What will you discard?
That future has this current past

Only pushing forward isnít strength
Thereís no way that letting go is easy

Darling,
donít blame it on anyone
The conclusion is up to you

- The conclusion is up to me -


Japanese
Spoiler:
Try 穏やかな さざ波のような
なんて勘違いの夢の夢見た
行手を全て塞がれるのは
良く考えてみなくても慣れっこ

どう考えたって正気の沙汰じゃない
It's called A 'Monster'

ノーマルは書き換えられて
悲観してる時間ももう過ぎた

受け止める?
牙を剥く?
見据えるのは終わりか始まりか

選択肢は減ったようで
ある意味無限になったのかもね

見知らぬ人よ
君のジャッジに興味はない
結末はボクシダイだ

Fly 疲弊して 擦り減った心
全てを失くした訳じゃまだない
右にならえなんてクソ喰らえだと
瞳の奥がハッキリ言ってる

やるだけやって玉砕のがマシね
You're also A 'Monster'

不確かな時代になって
確かなものに白黒がついた

守り抜く?
何捨てる?
その未来に今来た過去がある

貫くだけが強さじゃない
手放すのは楽なんて事はない

愛しい人よ
誰のせいにもしないで
結末はキミシダイだ

ノーマルは書き換えられて
悲観してる時間ももう過ぎた

受け止める?
牙を剥く?
見据えるのは終わりか始まりか

選択肢は減ったようで
ある意味無限になったのかもね

見知らぬ人よ
君のジャッジに興味はない

不確かな時代になって
確かなものに白黒がついた

守り抜く?
何捨てる?
その未来に今来た過去がある

貫くだけが強さじゃない
手放すのは楽なんて事はない

愛しい人よ
誰のせいにもしないで
結末はキミシダイだ

-結末はボクシダイだ-

Thank you for your translation. They're always so good.
I understood why the song gave me a WARNING feeling.

the lyrics convince me that this song would make a fantastic album opener (after the usual instrumental intro track, you know, per usual). reading these lyrics make my heart race. they send such a strong message about who she is.

thank you so much for translating this!
