Lyrics

教室の窓越しに ぼんやりと空に問う
何のため僕は生きているの わかんないよ

知りたいと思わないことばかり学ばされ
気付いたら自分の言葉さえなくしてた

教科書の余白に描いた理想の僕は
大人たちの言いなりじゃない 飛ぶ鳥のような自由があって

夢を見せたくせに 叶えれる力も与えてくれないなんて つらくなるだけだよ
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 僕はどこにいるの

心の中声がする ここにいると
空はきれいなのに

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

shiritai to omowanai koto bakari manabasare
kizuitara jibun no kotoba saenaku shite'ta

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 kanaereru chikara mo ataete kurenai nante tsuraku naru dake da yo
SUKAATO 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.
