kirakira mabushii hikari no saki ni
maboroshi no sākasu oshiete kureta
|Lyrics from Animelyrics.comWhen I was little I admired
the parades that would jump out of picture books.
They told me about the illusion of the circus
beneath the sparling, dazzling light.
|Lyrics from Animelyrics.comodokete warau dōkeshi ga
temaneite iru sono basho e
|Lyrics from Animelyrics.comClowns that would fool around and smile
beckoned me there.
|Lyrics from Animelyrics.comdokomademo parēdo
kurayami no naka ni totsuzen arawareta
sore wa honto no yume mitai na yume
|Lyrics from Animelyrics.comParades everywhere you go
They suddenly appeared out of the darkness.
Parades all the time.
It was a dream that seemed like a dream come true.
|Lyrics from Animelyrics.comjumon o tonaereba nan demo kanau
suki na ano ko mo furimukaserareru
hoshii mono zenbu te ni ireta ato
wana ni kizuitatte mō teokure
|Lyrics from Animelyrics.comIf you recite the spell, you can have anything.
You can get the girl you like to take notice of you.
After you've gotten everything you wanted,
even if you realize it's a trap, it's too late.
|Lyrics from Animelyrics.combukimi ni warau dōkeshi ga
tsuredashita basho otoshiana sa
|Lyrics from Animelyrics.comWhere the weirdly sneering clowns
have taken you is a pitfall.
|Lyrics from Animelyrics.comtobikonda parēdo
shiranai aida ni nukedasenaku natta
ijiwaru na parēdo
kamen no uragawa misete wa kurenai ne
|Lyrics from Animelyrics.comI jumped into the parade
where before I knew it I couldn't get out.
The nasty parade
doesn't show what's behind the mask.
|Lyrics from Animelyrics.comotona ni natte wakaru koto
te no naru hō e
itsudemo mae narae
|Lyrics from Animelyrics.comWhat I realized when I grew up
is to always follow the leader
in the direction they clap.
|Lyrics from Animelyrics.comhontō wa papetto
bokura o ayatsutte tabetsukushite shimau
sore ga honto no uso mitai na riaru
|Lyrics from Animelyrics.comIn reality it's the puppet that
manipulates us and gobbles us up.
We're caught in the parade.
That's the reality that seems like the real lie.
|Lyrics from Animelyrics.comnukedashite parēdo
kasunde mienai mejirushi o tayori ni
hare datte ame datte
parēdo on parēdo
|Lyrics from Animelyrics.comGet out of the parade
relying on landmarks too hazy to see.
The unending parade,
come rain or shine
it's a parade on parade.
