Lyrics from
YES desu ka
NO desu ka
docchi no kotae desu ka
anata no kotoba wa aimai desu

Lyrics from
is that a yes
or a no?
which is your answer?
your words are too vague

Lyrics from
hakkiri sasenai no ga
bitoku da nante kankei nai no desu
tsune ni motometeiru no wa
gokufutsuu na kotoba no KYACCHIBOORU

Lyrics from
ambiguity being a virtue
has got nothing to do with this
all i'm asking
is for a conversation ball made up of simple, ordinary words

Lyrics from
kanjou no hatsuro  meikaku na kotae
nanameuesugite yomitorinikui

Lyrics from
the way you express your feelings, the precise responses you make
they're never predictable, it's hard for me to comprehend

Lyrics from
gion desu ka
ryakugo desu ka
tatoebanashi mo ii kedo
tsutawaranakya imi nanka nai no yo!

Lyrics from
is that some sort of onomatopoeia?
an abbreviation of something?
you can throw in metaphors if you like
but they are pointless if you can't get the message across!

Lyrics from
DORAMA desu ka
RANOBE desu ka
kotobaasobi demo ii kedo
motto kanketsu na kaiwa ga shitai

Lyrics from
what is this, a tv drama?
a light novel?
using wordplays is fine too
but i wish we could have a more simple conversation

Lyrics from
chotto wa kaerimiteru
motto sunao ni kikeba
iwantosuru koto wakaru no ka na

Lyrics from
i paused for a moment and reflected
if i just be honest and ask
would i be able to understand what you were trying to communicate?

Lyrics from
nante hisshi ni ayumiyottara
KIMOCHI WARUI  to iimasu ka
konna toki dake futsuu!?

Lyrics from
so i tried my best to meet you halfway
and then you tell me that i'm creeping you out?
oh, so now you can respond like normal!?

Lyrics from
iranai kara!
yokei na shuushoku na to ka!
kazarisugite imi ga maigo desu

Lyrics from
you don't need
all those unnecessary adornments!
you make your sentences so florid that the meaning is lost on me

Lyrics from
YES desu ka
NO desu ka
docchi no kotae desu ka
anata no kimochi ga shiritai desu

Lyrics from
is that a yes
or a no?
which is your answer?
i want to know how you feel
