translation (source):

In reality, I was about to collapse, I was really afraid,
I made merry like an idiot, I pretended to be calm,
It may have looked like I was just talking about my dreams,
But that was all I could do.

If all you can do is put up a facade,
Even when you stretch out your hands, you won't hold on to anything.
I tried desperately to stand
In the space between dreams and reality.

Pipe dreams continue in the mighty kingdom
Before we realize, we're swallowed up in superfluous information.
I'm stopping to search for my own sound
So that I don't miss the real sound.

What should I believe?
I show something desperate that's ringing in my heart.
I want you to hear the real sound,
If you don't, this world will be...

Everything is gaudily decorated, everything has lost its real form.
At this rate, the world I live in
Will become overwhelmingly sad.

If all you can do is put up a facade...
But that's better than rusting away like this.
I want you to hear the real sound.
If you don't, this world will be...
Everything is like a pipe dream,
I show something desperate that's ringing in my heart.
I tried desperately to stand,
In the space between dreams and reality.

Let me hear the real sound...

For years.

"Something Is Not Right With Me"

Something is not right with me
Something is not right with me
Something is not right with me
How was I supposed to know?

Something is not right with me
Something is not right with me
Something is not right with me
Trying not to let it show

I tried to call you collect
You said you would not accept
Your friends are laughing
'Cause nobody uses pay phones

Gave me quarters to select
Song on the the jukebox that gets
People dancing
Should have never chose "Girlfriend"

Something is not right with me
Something is not right with me
Something is not right with me
How was I supposed to know?

Something is not right with me
Something is not right with me
Something is not right with me
I'm trying not to let it show

Passions of the people were sleeping late into the evening
Reach behind, they could hardly find their spines
Passions of the people were sleeping late into the evening
Reach behind, they could hardly find their spines
Passions of the people were sleeping late into the evening
Reach behind, they could hardly find their spines

You said you like old cars
I bought a beat up brown Dodge
it was smoking black
And died in your frontyard

You follow who's dating who
But, but when it comes to you
One is pulled a dozen
Different ways in the mind

Something is not right with me
Something is not right with me
Something is not right with me
How was I supposed to know?

Something is not right with me
Something is not right with me
Something is not right with me
I'm trying not to let it show

Who?
