Ah korogaru ishi sukoshizutsu hibi ni surihette ochiteku
sou tamesareteru itsumade unmei ni sakaraenai mama
inryoku ni makesou de muri darotte hetarikonjau mae ni
kono sai nonsutoppu de goorurain mo kakenukero ima
ketteiteki na kimi dake no suteppu wo kizande yo fumidashite yo
sono suujuu senchi ga mirai wo kaetekitandarou
shoukyokuteki de yowaki na rojikku wa yabuite yo sutesatte yo
mada minu suteeji e kowase kimi wo tozasu kara
Ah egaiteiru hodo ni genjitsu wa umaku ikanakute
sou daredatte ne ganbatteiru kara modokashiku naru
antei wo koujitsu ni raku na hou ni nigetakunaru keredo
ikkaikiri darotte furuitatasete tsukinukero ima
shougekiteki na jaianto suteppu wo shirushite yo kuridashite yo
rettoukan mo hora saidai no buki ni narundarou
zetsubouteki na pinchi no bamen demo neratte yo uchikatte yo
tsumiageta kinou ni kitto uso wa nai kara
shippai ka seikou ka nante saigo made wakaranai keredo
tokoton shinjikitte furusupiido de tobiagare ima
zettaiteki na kimi dake no suteppu wo kizande yo fumidashite yo
sono suujuu senchi ga kiseki okoshiteshimau kamo
attouteki de senretsu na janpu wo kimete yo kechirashite yo
saikou no imeeji no saki e haneru kimi no sutoraido
Ah.. these scattered stones, gradually erode throughout the days and come falling off..
.. thing is, we too, are as if constantly being put to the test.. ever unable to defy our fates, aren’t we?
But before going like: gravity obviously wins.. it’s hopeless.., and collapsing to the ground..
.. this time, right now, go running nonstop all the way to the very goal line
This decisive step, unique to only you, notch it up and step forward..
.. those same dozen-centimeter notches, have come changing your future along, haven’t they
The whole conservative logic behind your irresolution, smash it into pieces, and leave it behind..
.. on your way to the yet-unseen stage.. break down the shell that’s confining you
Ah.. things don’t go well.. nowhere near what I had imagined..
.. thing is, everyone runs out of patience, because they’ve been giving it their best
Under the pretext of going slow and steady, you’d always wanna run for the easier way, but..
.. tell yourself, right now, that it’s just this once.. encourage yourself, and go break through it
This astonishing giant step ahead, jot it down and burst forward..
.. there, see.. even inferiority complex can be turned into the strongest weapon
Even if you get stuck in a desparate pinch scenario.. just take aim, and overcome it..
.. ‘cuz the past, as you’ve built it up brick by brick, is surely not made of lies
Was it a fail or a win.. you won’t get to know that answer up until the end, but..
.. don’t give up your belief to the bitter end.. take the leap and soar high, right now, at full speed
This ultimate step, unique to only you, notch it up and step forward..
.. those same dozen-centimeter notches, may end up bringing about miracles.. who knows!?
This tremendous, spectacular jump forward, accomplish it and blast the way open with a kick..
.. with that stride you will hop forward beyond the greatest image
T/N: Notice that in some songs some word usages are purely there for rhythmic resemblance and rhyming ends, to beautify the overall style of the lyrics. Meaning usually gets sacrificed to some extent when that happens. Here it only happens once (‘kechirashite’ at the last couplet, which means “kick things scattered” is not that relevant to the rest of the song meaning-wise if you’ve noticed).
Nonetheless, very nice song and lovely beat, as I’d expect of a Motohiro Hata single ≧(´▽｀)≦ .. I just never quite figured where Isaac was going, or who the hell he is anyway, for that matter ┐(￣ー￣)┌
