RADWIMPS - Kizumono
Lyrics, Composition, & Arrangement: Noda Yojiro
So that I cannot be disliked by anyone
So that I cannot be hated by anyone
I have lived desperately until today
That plan was a great success
I am no longer disliked by anyone
I am no longer hated by anyone
But if I were to turn around and see clearly
There wouldn’t be a single person by my side
It’s good this way
It’s best this way
This is what’s left in the world
The best, true kindness
For whose sake? For my sake?
For my sake that was for your sake
For my sake, that’s the trap of youth
Even if that’s all I can say about it
Today I still put up a front with hurtful words
Then, knowing for whose sake it is
Serves what purpose?

This is one of my favorite songs from RADWIMPS’ Zettai Enmei Tour DVD (it hasn’t gotten a CD release yet).
It’s so beautiful in its simplicity.
