Lyrics for side_story by Shoten Taro.

この夢の果てに 光を求めて
いつの日にか 必ず逢えると信じ
約束の果てに 忘れゆく声に
言葉にして 今なら届くと
伝えて

答えを得られなかった世界の片隅で
まだ、形すらなかった僕たちは
誰かに認められたかった想いを、
胸に祕めて、ずっと追いかけていた。

憧れの主人公のように、ただ、見上げ続けても。
子供のままではいられないのに、
痛みに耐える大人になれなかったことを、
受け入れられずに。

この闇に囚われる運命に抗い、
必死に手を伸ばした先の希望を信じ、
絵本の物語で終わらせたくなくて、
いつか変えられると、
「祈った」

いつの日かこの名前が貴方に届くまでは、
この世界を謳うと心に決めたんだ
朽ち果てた声が掻き消されていく
その時までは、ただ、ただ!

息を吸って、音を繋いで、涙を流して!
希望の物語のその先を、その夢を…
見届けるんだ
だから…

世界を変えたいと、誰かの願いが聞こえた。
果たしてしまった誓いの跡でも、
まだ、未来を信じているんだ。

だけど、本当は…
自分は変われないことに目を背けていたんだ。
そしてその矛先を、きっと
「誰か」のせいにしていたんだと思う。

それが悲しくて、否定したくて、
遺された右手の確かな反撥で、
「誰か」を変えたいんじゃない。
見ることしかできなかった

「僕自身」なんだ。

空白の果てに 薄れゆく夢を
言葉にして 今なら届くと
叫ぶ

その夢の果てに 答えを求めて
いつの日にか 必ず形にすると

約束の果てに 書き連ねてきた
言葉が今 届くと信じて
語り継いでいく

あなたに会った時、
その言葉を伝える為に
自分が傷付けたその先を
あなたによって救われた
この世界で、きっと…

彼らによって導かれた、
委ねられることのない左手で
希望の物語の外側を
きっと、ぼくたちは…

「描いていくんだ」

Seeking the light at the end of this dream
Believing that someday we will surely meet
At the end of a promise, to a forgotten voice
Say it in words, that you can reach me now
Tell them

In a corner of the world where I couldn't get an answer
We, who didn't even have a form yet
We wanted to be recognized by someone.
I banned the school from my heart and kept chasing after it.

Like the hero of our dreams, we just kept looking up.
I couldn't remain a child.
I couldn't accept the fact that I couldn't become an adult who could endure pain.
I couldn't accept it.

Resisting the fate of being trapped in this darkness.
Believing in the hope that lies beyond my desperate reach.
I didn't want the story to end with a picture book.
I prayed that one day...
"I prayed."

I prayed that someday I could change it.
I made up my mind to celebrate this world.
My decaying voice will be drowned out.
Until then, just, just!

Breathe in, connect the sound, and shed a tear!
I'll see the story of hope through to its end, its dream...
We'll see it through.
So...

I heard someone's wish to change the world.
Even with all the vows I've fulfilled.
I still believe in the future.

But the truth is...
I've been turning a blind eye to the fact that I can't change.
And I'm sure I'm blaming it on...
"And I'm sure I've been blaming it on someone else.

I was sad about that, and wanted to deny it.
I wanted to change "someone" with my right hand.
"I don't want to change who I am.
All I could do was watch.

"It's "myself.

At the end of the blank, the fading dream
In words, I'll reach you now
I shout

Seeking an answer at the end of that dream
I'm sure I'll make it come true someday

At the end of my promise, I've been writing
I believe the words will reach you now
I'll carry on the story

When I meet you
In order to convey those words
I'll tell you where I've been hurt
I was saved by you.
In this world, surely...

Guided by them.
With a left hand that can never be surrendered
outside the story of hope.
I'm sure we'll...

"We'll draw it."
