Shiina Ringo - Tsumi to batsu (罪と罰) (English translation)

English translation

Crime and Punishment

Yamate Street's morning sun piercing my cheek
Throwing away an empty cigarette box
As always, today I have nowhere to be
Spoiled by the loneliness of a tiny room
 
"Please don't love ominous screams
don't look at things like the future
just pile on the tangible present moments
Call my name correctly and
touch me, that is all that you need to acknowledge"
 
"I love you,"I screamed alone
The futility of messing around with the midnight road
The cheap fluorescent light of the (train station) ticketing booth
Wont even cast your shadow
 
That skewed and unsubstantial faraway day too
the smell of seven star (cigs)
I can almost taste it, it brings back the season
The one I desire
contradiction exceeds excellence
Your voice, the thing I miss the most
has gotten so blurred
 
A german car and a patrol car clashes the silence
Siren, noise, the real world
exists and floats
 
"Please don't love ominous screams
don't look at things like the future
just pile on the tangible present moments
Call my name correctly and
touch me, that is all that you need to acknowledge"
 
Yamate Street's morning sun piercing my cheek
Throwing away an empty cigarette box
As always, today I have nowhere to be
Spoiled by the loneliness of a tiny room
