BAND-MAID® – Arcadia Girl

Lyrics: Yamashita Shinichiro
Song: Ozawa Masumi
Translation: Kafka

Rather than feathers, I’m surrounded by beliefs and betrayal
I naturally blend into the trends of modern society

I’m fickle and slovenly, it’s like I’m wandering aimlessly here and there
I do everything halfheartedly, but I have handled them flawlessly

The people I admired when I was little
Was it really these adults having pretentious smiles?

Being offended while watching the drama is the role of a typical coward
The irrationality of people – Hey, look! Fix your pretentious self
The desire to change won’t be that easy, it’s just a way to compromise
Please tell me, what happened?
To tell you the truth, this wasn’t I what wanted

Talking about fashion and love while being obstinate and vain
Marking all the people I’ve dated by counting them with my fingers

No, it’s not true – What I want is more
Realistic than anyone, I’m just clumsy and sincere

What does it mean to be happy? from where can I feel warmth?
This swelling on my chest and purse
All these non-stop talkativeness with superficial feelings
I don’t want it, although I can’t stop them
I’m going through a loop, forever

Stay honest and earnest – since tears will glitter
I’ll cast away my show-off self

Being offended while watching the drama is the role of a typical coward
The irrationality of people – Hey, look! Fix your pretentious self
The desire to change won’t be that easy, it’s just a way to compromise
Please tell me, what happened? this wasn’t I what wanted
What does it mean to be happy? from where can I feel warmth?
I want to find a gentle relieving dream
So what if I’m selfish? so what if I’m affectionate?
I’ll suffer and struggle, even if that’s how my real self is

Arcadia

Kanji:

羽よりもお手軽に 信じる裏切る空回る
ナチュラルに溶け込んだ 現代社会の風潮

移り気でぞんざいで あちこちフラフラするように
何事もテキトーに そつなくこなしてきたけど

子供の頃に憧れていたものは
愛想笑いのオトナだったっけ?

ドラマを見ながらキレる ヘタレた役の典型
人のふり ほら見てみ 我がふり直せ
変えたくてすぐ変わらない 成り行き任せスタイル
どうしてよ? 教えてよ?
こんなはずじゃない ホントウは

意地張って見栄張って 恋とかオシャレに語ったり
指折って何人も 付き合った数を盛ったり

ちがうよもっと 誰より現実的
欲しいものは切実 不器用で

嬉しいことは何でしょう? 温かいのは何でしょう?
この胸とお財布の膨らみなんて
上辺ばっかの気持ち ペラペラまわる饒舌
いらなくて やめなくて
堂々巡り いつまでも

素直なまま 一途なまま 涙は光るから
見せかけの私なんてもう 捨てて

ドラマを見ながらキレる ヘタレた役の典型
人のふり ほら見てみ 我がふり直せ
変えたくてすぐ変わらない 成り行き任せスタイル
どうしてよ? 教えてよ? こんなはずじゃない
嬉しいことは何でしょう? 温かいのは何でしょう?
優しくてホッとする夢見つけたい
わがままだっていいじゃない 愛情込めていいじゃない
もがいてよ あがいてよ それがホントウの 私だと
