Hope this helps somebody~! -Tigerfire
真っ白い君を手のひらで転がしてきた
 
ずいぶん前に私たちはこの場所にきていたんだ
 
灰色の砂が風で巻かれていったけど
 
ずいぶん前にそれがどこへいくのか気づいていて
 
砂浜と線路
 
海の上をはしるトレインは終着駅へ
 
やる気のない黄色い太陽が沈んでしまう
 
言葉を連ね寒さを煙にまく毛布をつくってあげる
 
ノートの上で眠っているような君に
 
鯨の骨を探してあつめてみたけれど
 
めんどくさくなって君にぜんぶあげたんだ
 
できたよって君は元に戻してくれたけど
 
いじわるな風が鯨を吹き抜けた
 
冷めていってしまう
 
それも今日で終わらせるんだ
 
車窓に揺れるランプが私をまだ迷わせようとしてるの
 
嬉しかったし楽しかったし辛かったし悔しかったし
 
それらを取り巻いてた寂しさに追われることももうないんでしょ
 
砂浜と線路
 
海の上をはしるトレインは回送列車
 
押し付けがましい太陽がのぼってきた
 
鯨になればいいと手をひいた君にね
 
全部あげよう
 
そのかわり白く小さくなってここに戻れたら

Whale Bone

You rolled, pure white, off my hand.
A long time ago we had come here.
Grey sand was coiling in the wind, but
A long time ago I noticed where it all was going *
 
A sandy beach and train tracks,
The train running over the ocean is heading for the terminal station.
The unwilling, yellow sun is sinking.
I'll make a blanket that mystifies the cold from lined up words, and give it
To you, while you seem to be sleeping on your notebook.
 
I tried searching for, and gathering up the whale bones, but
It became bothersome, and I gave them all to you.
Because you could, you put them back together for me, but
A malicious wind blew through the whale
 
It's become cold.
I'll end it today, too
The swaying lamp in the train window still desires to puzzle me,
Because it was happy, fun, hard, and vexing.
The loneliness that had encircled those feelings
Is no longer hunting us, right?
 
A sandy beach and train tracks,
The train running over the ocean is the out-of-service train.
The self-assertive sun has risen.
To you, who wanted to be a whale and pulled my hand,
I want to give everything
But instead, it would be nice if I could become small and white, and return here

*He's talking about both the sand and time here, I think. Saying that he knew where the sand was blowing, just as he had a feeling he knew how things were going end up.

Probably has some mistakes, I'm still working on my Japanese. Just let me know and I'll fix them. (Thanks to AkiraCres for corrections!!)

There are a lot of references to the other songs on this album, specifically "老人と海".

Hi,
I'm from Japan.
Let me give you some advice about the meaning of the Japanese passage.
But if you don't understand what I mean, please ask me... Because I'm not good at English, I may not explain that well.

「言葉を連ね寒さを煙にまく毛布をつくってあげる」
I'll make to you a blanket that mystifies the cold, made from the words lined up.
(I'll line up the words and make to you a blanket of it, the blanket befogs the coldness.)
「煙にまく(kemunimaku)」=「ごまかす、曖昧にする」mystify, befog, cheat... etc.

「それも今日で終わらせるんだ」I'll end it today, too

「回送列車」="A deadhead train" or "out‐of‐service train". "forwarding" is the different meaning of the word「回送」.

「そのかわり白く小さくなってここに戻れたらいいな」
Instead of that, I hope to be white and small and to come back here.
「白く小さくなって」"I hope to be white and small piece", This means "I hope to be a (small piece of) bone". This phrase's subject is probably "I", not "we".

Thank you very much for the help, AkiraCres! I understood what you were saying perfectly. The way you wrote the lines makes a lot more sense. I've made changes to hopefully reflect that.
ありがとうございました!
