Song Lyric Sunday: Season & New

The theme for the last two Song Lyric Sundays was “season” and “new” respectively. It’s the first time I’ve missed it two Sundays in a row so I decided the only way to not post too many and having the first one ignored is to choose a song that fits both themes.

As seasons come and go with continually change and adapt. Our past selves die out together with the passing seasons. Ever-changing, ever-adapting to the world where you have to be fickle to be considered evolving and open-minded. No matter how much we have lost or continue to lose as the seasons pass, time marches on without stopping for anyone. We leave behind our pasts filled with suffering to embark on our next phase in life that will likely be just as full of despair.

Even so, we have to continue through the seasons. The seasons may be familiar since they always come full cycle, yet each season we experience brings something new. Perhaps something minute, something small, something not worth much. Even so, we just have to continue living through the seasons.

Every time we die inside, we need to revive ourselves together with the seasons and pick ourselves up.

That is just the way life is.

My song choice for this week is “Kisetsu wa Tsugitsugi Shindeiku” by amazarashi.

Kisetsu wa Tsugitsugi Shindeiku

The seasons die out, one after another
– cries of death take the place of wind…
A man, unsusceptible to the charms of the city,
looks up at the moon and notices how inelegant it all is.

In an everyday life that’s like trudging through mud,
the rain itself tastes of alcohol;
Wandering the city with apathetic eyes,
suspicious innocents gather around the station.

In order to uphold the unsteady fact that I’m “me”,
it’s like my half-transparent shadow has come to life.
If I were to sing in the rain, would these clouds finally part?

My life is bone dry amidst this bustling summer…
I address a poem of farewell to my loathsome past;
I have to abandon the remains of these terrible days-
these horrid dreams… even if it kills me!

In the next life, a flower will bloom to tell you a poem of transition;
Filled with suffering – grieving and moaning,
but never dying out… even when starved of sunlight.

Each tomorrow dies out, one after another;
even hurrying, they’re unreachable as they become the past…
But for we who hurry through life,
our flames are fickle;
we’re always adding meaning after the fact.

In order to uphold the unsteady fact that you’re “you”,
your unstable ego ventures to despise you.
If you were just able to sing,
would the darkness be dispelled?

Your life has been left up to a dream rotten at its core.
I address a poem of farewell to my loathsome past;
I have to abandon the remains of these terrible days
– these horrid dreams… even if it kills me!

In the next life, a flower will bloom to tell you a poem of transition;
Filled with suffering – grieving and moaning,
but never dying out… even when starved of sunlight.

With a tired face, we limp along…
squinting our eyes at the reflected sunset.
We spend time wondering if we should go on,
or head back – but after the slightest hesitation,
our forms are seen moving onward.

That’s right, we have to go!
Even if we have nothing,
we have to go on living!

After all, our lives were scrounged up along the way;
we’ll leave what little we can behind as we proceed.
I address a nostalgic poem,
reflecting upon my expired past;

When I realize those terrible days
– those horrid dreams…
were really the beginning,
they seem so far away!

Our flowers will surely wilt one day,
returning to the circle of life
– Filled with suffering
– grieving and moaning,
but never dying out…
even when starved of sunlight.
The seasons revive, one after another.
