Lyrics from
Ichibanme no boku
tada nanimo shirazu
utau koto ga suki na mama ni
Sekai wa konna ni mo
monokuro ja nai ka
Boku wa utaimashō
iro o tsukeru tame ni

Lyrics from
The first me,
without even knowing anything,
as I was how I liked to sing,
I kept on shouting.
The world is so
monochrome isn't it?
I'll sing
to give it colour.

Lyrics from
Nibanme no boku
daishō o shitte
sono uragawa ni obienagara
Sekai wa konna ni mo
chiguhagu ja nai ka
Boku wa utaimashō
tsunagi-tomeru tame ni

Lyrics from
The second me,
knowing what it would cost,
while fearful of what lay behind it,
I kept singing.
The world is so
mismatched, isn't it?
I'll sing
to tie it together

Lyrics from
Sanbanme no boku
muchū de agaite
tsukami-toreru mono o shinjite
koe o karashita
Sekai wa konna ni mo
urusai ja nai ka
Boku wa utaimashō
ibasho o tsugeru tame ni

Lyrics from
The third me,
struggling like mad,
and believing in what I could grasp,
I used up my voice.
The world is so
annoying, isn't it?
I'll sing
to tell people where I am.

Lyrics from
"Rikai suru" "manabu" koto ga
izure mi o musubu no da to shite
sore nara
boku wa kurikaeshi
boku o korosu darō

Lyrics from
"Understanding" and "Study",
supposing they eventually pay off,
in which case,
I guess I will repeatedly
kill myself.

Lyrics from
Yonbanme no boku
ryōude o sagete
akirameru koto ga owari
de wa nai to sakebu
Sekai wa konna ni mo
karafuru ja nai ka
Boku wa utaimashō
iro o fuyasu tame ni

Lyrics from
The fourth me
lowered my arms
and I shout, Giving up
is not how it ends.
The world is so
colourful, isn't it?
I'll sing
to give it even more colour.

Lyrics from
Gobanme no boku
o-shimai o shitte
sono uragawa o kangaeru
koto o kyohi suru
Sekai wa konna ni mo
garakuta ja nai ka
Boku wa utaimashō
kusari hodoku tame ni

Lyrics from
The fifth me,
knowing it's the end,
I refuse to consider
the flip side.
The world is so much
junk, isn't it?
I'll sing
to untie the chains.

Lyrics from
Rokubanme no boku
mō mi o yudanete
kasurete itamu nodo o nadete
kuchi o tozashita
Sekai wa konna ni mo
seijaku ja nai ka
Boku wa utaimashō
kokoro no naka dake de

Lyrics from
The sixth me,
having already committed myself,
I stroked my hoarse, sore throat
and closed my mouth.
The world is so
quiet, isn't it?
I'll sing
silently to myself.

Lyrics from
Iro o ushinau koto ga
seichō da to iu naraba
mō nando jibun o
koroshita no darō?
Kieta bokura wa doko e ikō?

Lyrics from
If you say that losing colour
is growing up,
maybe I've already
killed myself several times.
Where do the me's that have disappeared go?

Lyrics from
Soshite umareta no wa
nanabanme no boku
Mujaki de okubyō daitan
mōmoku uchiki de mukuchi na boku
Nantomo kokkei na sugata ja nai ka
Umareta bakari no kimi e
shukufuku o kibō o rakutan o

Lyrics from
The one born next
was the seventh me.
The innocent, timid, bold,
blind, shy, mute me. (1)
Don't I look so laughable?
May you who was just born
have blessing, hope and discouragement.

Lyrics from
"Rikai suru" "manabu" koto de
iro o ushinai-tsuzukeru nara
sore nara
boku wa nando de mo
umare-kieru darō

Lyrics from
If, by "Understanding" and "Study",
you continue to lose colour,
then if so,
I'll probably keep being born and
disappearing over and over again.

Lyrics from
Nanabanme no boku,
boku o koroshita.

Lyrics from
The seventh me
killed me.

(1) These six personalities may characterize the six versions of "me".
