Honnoji English Translation

本能寺で待ってる・・・

本能寺でずっとずっとずっとずっと待ってる

TAXI 森まで行って やつらが待ってる TAXI 森まで行って
墓場に散った 骨の連続 とっても永らく 歴史が水泳
炊き出しの豚汁の行列 並んで待ってる
UFOの飛来 次来るのは何年後 10 years ago
時間軸の崩壊 次来るのは100年後 それまで待ってる

本能寺で待ってる・・・

のけぞりながらベランダで小宇宙を見る
逆立ちしながら天見上げ はっかたばこのケムリを吐く
製薬会社のネオンサイン 午後10時にぴたっと消える
零時をまわってまだぐるぐる 旋回してるヘリコプター
路上駐車に激突したトラックの処理の赤い点灯の点滅
国道の街灯がオレンジ色に集まる夏の虫のはばたき
夜がはじまる 問いかけをはじめる
俺自身に気さくに話しかける 夜がはじまる

本能寺で待ってる・・・

Life… Life in the water
Life… Life in the cold water

本能寺で待ってる・・・
本能寺でずっとずっとずっとずっとずっとずっとずっと
待ってる

本能寺で待ってる・・・

Waiting at Honnoji…

Forever and ever and ever and ever, waiting at Honnoji

Taxi, go to the forest. They’re waiting. Taxi, go to the forest
A long history of bones, scattered and swimming in the graveyard
A procession of emergency tonjiru bowls, all lined up and waiting.
A UFO is flying. What came after those past years, 10 years ago.
A collapse of the time axis, next is the 100 years after. I’ll wait until then.

Waiting at Honnoji…

I leap backwards as I see microcosms on the veranda
I stiffen as I look up to the sky, breathing fumes of Hakka cigarettes
The neon signs of drug companies disappeared exactly ten years ago
The encircling helicopters still swirl around at midnight
A garbage truck crashed into on-street parking with red lights flashing
The fluttering summer bugs assemble at the orange color of the national highway street lights
The night begins. The questions begin.
I’m perfectly willing to talk to myself. The night begins.

Waiting at Honnoji…

Life… Life in the water
Life… Life in the cold water

Waiting at Honnoji…
Forever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever
Waiting at Honnoji

Waiting at Honnoji…
