Bridge)
Memories tried
to make this solitary classroom splendid
I am a careful guy after all
I cry only after everyone has left

During class, I secretly took out my lunch box
to eat and spilled some soup from the side dish
Wondering what it1)the spilled soup looked like,
I drew an elephant with wings on my desk

Verse 1)
I sat in the second last row, well I was small
but I was trying to stay out of the teachers’ sight
so I sat quite way in the back
Well, that doesn’t make me a hoodlum or something

I wasn’t a very lame guy, I never actually studied
I went to school in the morning and back home when it was over,
I always disliked those things
“These strange guys are probably doing nothing but studying today too

but those are the things I absolutely hate”
I surrounded myself only with guys who thought that way,
and scribbled my workbook full with stuff like
“School is a place to raise your dream? Don’t shit me”

I bought CDs with my lunch money
and with a knife I engraved our team’s name “Virus” into my desk
I always wanted to grow up fast and leave this place
Why am I not laughing but getting teary?

Hook: Junggigo)
Now is the beginning, it’s the end
only you and I are left
There will come a day when we won’t remember
but do not forget

Verse 2)
Standing at the end of one period of life,
I’ve always tried hard to find out what comes next
Unfortunately, what looks close-by here
are only our expressionless [faces, trying to] repress [our emotions]

I, who only superficially chose freedom, have been blind,
holding in there so far without grabbing onto a walking stick
The magician who frequently crosses the river of dimensions
is trying to drag me along to start a journey

Oh, hold onto me, hold me
The swamp of boundaries has been divided again, please stop this time
Oh, hold onto me, hold me
The swamp of boundaries has been divided again, please stop this time

I walked another whole round
A wobbly chair, and the drawers that are still stuffed,
the elephant scribble on the desk
Now this place is one step farther away from me

“You can come back again anytime,”
the playing field quietly told me, but I’m sorry,
I don’t think I can come back to this place again
I will probably indulge myself in a new journey and forget you soon
