Lyrics

教室の窓越しに ぼんやりと空に問う
何のため ボクは生きているの? 分かんないよ

教科書の余白に描いた理想のボクは
オトナ達の言いなりじゃない
飛ぶ鳥のような 自由があって

夢を魅せたくせに 叶えれる才能(チカラ)
与えてくれないなんて 辛くなるだけだよ
スカートの丈さえ 決められた長さで
やりたいこともできずに ボクはどこにいるの?

知りたいと思わないことばかり学ばされ
気づいたら自分の言葉さえ 矢くしていた

はじまりのチャイムに 背筋伸ばすけれど
気持ちはもう 折れかけてる
”ふつう”と云う トリカゴから逃げたい

死んだような目をして 生きて行くのは嫌だ
だけどひとり飛び立てる 勇気なんてなくて

髪の毛の色さえ 自分で選べないで
やりたいこともできずに ボクはどこにいるの?

心の中 声がする "ここにいる"と

ブラウスの一番上まで留めたボタン
息苦しくなって ため息が出てしまう
空は綺麗なのに ボクには届かない
脱ぎ捨てて 羽ばたきたい 誰か聴いて

夢を魅せたくせに 叶えれる才能(チカラ)
与えてくれないなんて 辛くなるだけだよ
スカートの丈さえ 決められた長さで
やりたいこともできずに ボクはどこにいるの?

心の中 声がする "ここにいる"と

空は綺麗なのに…

kyoushitsu no madogoshi ni bonyari to sora ni tou
nan no tame boku wa ikite iru no? wakannai yo

kyoukasho no yohaku ni egaita risou no boku wa
otona-tachi no iinari janai
tobu tori no you na jiyuu ga atte

yume wo misetakuse ni kinaereru chikara wo
ataete kurenai nante tsuraku naru dake da yo
sukāto no take sae kimerareta nagasa de
yaritai koto mo dekizu ni boku wa doko ni iru no?

shiritai to omowanai koto bakari manabasare
kizuitara jibun no kotoba sae yaku shite ita

hajimari no chaimu ni sesuji nobasu keredo
kimochi wa mou orekakete'ru
"futsuu” to iu torikago kara nigetai

shinda you na me wo shite ikite iku no wa iya da
dakedo hitori tobi tate'ru yuuki nante nakute

kami no ke no iro sae jibun de erabenai de
yaritai koto mo dekizu ni boku wa doko ni iru no?

kokoro no naka koe ga suru "koko ni iru" to

burausu no ichiban ue made tometa botan
ikigurushiku natte tame iki ga dete shimau
sora wa kirei na no ni boku ni wa todokanai
nugi sutete habatakitai dare ka kiite

yume wo misetakuse ni kinaereru chikara wo
ataete kurenai nante tsuraku naru dake da yo
sukāto no take sae kimerareta nagasa de
yaritai koto mo dekizu ni boku wa doko ni iru no?

kokoro no naka koe ga suru "koko ni iru" to

sora wa kirei na no ni...

through the classroom window, I absentmindedly ask the sky
what's the purpose of my life? I have no idea

things i want to know but don't think myself are all I study
As I realized this, I was losing my own voice

In my textbook's margin, I wrote my ideals
not to do as I'm told, but to have the freedom of a soaring bird

though I showed my dreams, my granted power and ungranted just become bitter
when I can't even decide the length of my skirt or do as I'd like,
where am I?

the voice in my heart answered "you're here."
The sky is beautiful, though.

Animation

Ichigo is seen in a city under construction, as a train passes by. Miku goes through a road under construction. It is raining, and Ikuno, equipped with an umbrella, is standing near a train station track with an active railway signal. Kokoro is in a street with a vending machine nearby. Zero Two is then seen standing atop a crane as she jumps off from it and birds fly away. She starts running as Ichigo is seen arriving in an area surrounded by barriers. Ichigo holds the barrier and looks inside it, where there is a room that has a screen showing a city and a bird, with eight seats in the room, only two standing while the others are in the floor.
