KOKORO no sukima wo chotto yokogitte
mabataki no SUPI-DO de kasanareba
toorisugiru hibi ga kyutto te wo nigiru
tachidomatteru tsuyogari ni aizu shite

We cross through the crevices of our hearts,
and as we come together with blinding speed,
the days that passes by us tightly hold our hands,
signaling our bluff which came to a stand still.

mitsumeru to tsutawatte yuku nara
MABOROSHI mo kieru yo ne sugu ni

If we could express ourselves just by looking into each others’ eyes,
illusions would also disappear right away.

fui ni KONEKUTO sekai ga kawaru
BI-dama goshi ni nozoitara
ima yori motto kagayaku keshiki
nani ga sono de mieru?

Suddenly connecting, the world changes.
If we peek through a small marble,
what will we see in the scenery
that is much brighter than before?

yurete KONEKUTO mata chigau sora
tobidasu toki ha niji no iro
kidzuitanda yo hajimari no oto
nogasanaide kiite

Swaying and connecting we see a different sky again.
That new time we feel is rainbow colored.
I noticed the sound of beginnings,
don’t let it escape you and listen.

boku-tachi eranda mirai tsunagu yo

It will connect us to the future we chose.

KOKORO no sukima wo chotto umetemite
atarashii asu ga yatte kuru nara
itsumo doori massugu arukanaide
zensokuryoku gyaku he iku no mo ii ne

Try to fill the emptiness of your heart.
If a new future will come by doing so,
don’t just keep walking straight forward.
it’s also okay to run at full speed in the opposite direction.

nobasu te ni tsutawatteiku kara
hontou no egao misete sugu ni

I’m going to convey myself to your hand reaching out to me,
so show me your true smile right away.

fui ni KONEKUTO sekai ga mawaru
KAKERA ni natta fukashigi he
tomadoi nagara kidzuiteiku
dare ga soko de mieru?

Suddenly connecting, the world turns.
As you get closer
to that mystery while confused,
do you see anyone?

yurete KONEKUTO karuyakana sora
tobikomu yuuki wo ageru yo
kasuka ni hibiku hajimari no oto
nogasanaide kiite

Swaying and connecting we see a light sky.
I’ll give you the courage to jump in,
so don’t let the faintly ringing
sound of beginnings escape you and listen.

kako mo mirai mo zenbu tsunaide

It connects past, future, and everything.

donna katachi? KOKORO no ire mono tte
kantan ni deteicchau no kana
tashikameyou boku-tachi no shinjitsu
hirakareta DOA ni hitasura mukau dake

What shape is the container that is our hearts?
Can we easily get out from it?
Let’s make sure this is our reality.
All we have to do is face the door which has been opened.

kitto KENKUTO shikai ga hareru
uchuu no saki wo mitsuketa mitai
itsuka KONEKUTO mada tarinai ne
dareka no kimochi shitteyuku nara

If we connect, our vision will clear.
It’s as if we found what lies beyond space.
One day we connected, but it’s not enough, is it?
If we were to understand others’ feelings…

fui ni KONEKUTO sekai ga kawaru
BI-dama gochi ni nozoitara
ima yori motto kagayaku keshiki
nani ga soko de mieru?

Suddenly connecting, the world changes.
If we peek through a small marble,
what will we see in the scenery
that is much brighter than before?

yurete KONEKUTO mata chigau sora
tobidasu toki ha niji no iro
kidzuitanda yo hajimari no oto
nogasanaide kiite

Swaying and connecting we see a different sky again.
That new time we feel is rainbow colored.
I noticed the sound of beginnings,
don’t let it escape you and listen.

mudana koto demo zenbu
matomete hikari ni shite
boku-tachi de eranda mirai tsunagu yo

Gather everything, even pointless things,
and make them into our light.
It will connect us to the future we chose.
