Lyrics from
Horeta hareta  sawaide tanoshisou na yatsura
Sou da sou da  otagai wo koutei suru yakara
Mazu wa nakama ni nande mo soudan suru otoko
Kako ii to omotte TABAKO suu onna no ko

Lyrics from
Those lovey-dovey people who noisily enjoy themselves
They're a bunch of people who just enable each other, saying "That's right, that's right!" [1]
First there's the guys who discuss everything with their friends
And the girls who smoke cigarettes because they think it's cool

Lyrics from
Nisemono no anjin ni warumono sagashi
Watashitachi ni wa kankei nai

Lyrics from
Their fake peace of mind and their searching for bad guys
Are nothing to do with us

Lyrics from
Dare ni mo kesenai itami wo
Koyoi wa watashi ni azukenasai
Kouya no ookami  hoete mo  asa ga kowai
Kotoba ni dekinai omoi wo
Koyoi wa uta ni shite kikasetai
Kouya no ookami  nihiki no tsukiyo butai

Lyrics from
Tonight, entrust to me
The pain no one can erase
Even if the wolves of the wilderness howl, the morning is frightening
Tonight, I'll put into song
The feelings I can't put into words, and I want you to hear it
A moonlit scene of two wolves of the wilderness

Lyrics from
Kubiwa tsunagarete ikiru no wa gomen da ne
Aijou to hikikae ni namae nanka iranai

Lyrics from
I have no intention of living my life in a collar
I don't need a name in exchange for affection

Lyrics from
Sukoshi nigai nomimono de kanpai shitara
Aoi aoi SHIITSU no mukougishi e kogidasou

Lyrics from
If we gulp down the slightly bitter drink
Let's start rowing to the opposite shore of the blue, blue sheets

Lyrics from
Dare datte onaji  kaeru basho ga hoshii
Dakedo  naimono wa nai

Lyrics from
Everyone is the same, just wanting somewhere to call home
But what doesn't exist, doesn't exist

Lyrics from
Namida wa misenai shugi demo
Koyoi wa watashi to nuretara ii
Kouya no ookami  hashiredo  asu ga kowai
Kanau koto no nai negai wo
Koyoi wa dareka to miokuritai
Kouya no ookami  nihiki no kage'e shibai

Lyrics from
Even if it's your principle not to show tears
Tonight, with me, you can let them fall
Even if the wolves of the wilderness run, tomorrow is frightening
Tonight, with someone else, I want to see off
The wishes that never came true
A shadowplay of two wolves of the wilderness

Lyrics from
Kubiwa tsunagarete ikiru no wa gomen da ne
Mitasarenu kokoro dake ataerareta no wa naze?

Lyrics from
I have no intention of living my life in a collar
Why is it that all I've been given is a heart that won't be fulfilled?

Lyrics from
Suki da  soredake de hikitomecha dame da yo ne
Eien no hajimari ni se wo mukeru  watashitachi

Lyrics from
Don't let yourself be caught by a simple "I love you"
We turn our backs on the beginning of eternity
