about

The title track was born from a conversation with Stephen William Hodd and the title was a gift from Chris Difford. It expresses a longing for a simpler time, and how Stephen went through a rebellion against his grammar school upbringing. He’d embraced a new culture - wearing a Morbid Angel t-shirt and a jacket emblazoned with band patches lovingly sewn on by his mother.” Dan

lyrics

The Glass Age (ガラスのじだい,garasu no jidai)

V1
My mother was a morbid angel
わたしのははは びょうきにかかったてんしだった Watashino hahawa byoukini kakatta tenshi datta
Sewing lights within me わたしのなかのソーイングライト Watashino nakano sooinguraito
(I) Came home but I couldn’t sleep いえにかえってもねむれない
Ieni kaettemo nemurenai
Grain on cheek ほほのりゅうし Hohono ryuushi
One day l’ll leave this island, いつかこのしまをはなれる Itsuka konoshimao hanareru
parade via the underground. ちかをとおったパレード Chikao tootta pareedo
The bells are ringing, ベルがなっている Beruga natteiru
raining down. あめがふっている Amega futteiru

PRE
Welcome to the glass age ガラスのじだいにようこそ Garasuno jidaini youkoso
It’s all part of the family それはすべてかぞくのいちいん Soreha subete kazokuno ichiin
This screen is here to stay このけしきはここにある

CHORUS
Are you watching me? わたしをみてる? Watashio miteru?
Are you watching me? わたしをみてる? Watashi o miteru?
I see you, though I cannot hear a word you say. あなたのいうことはきこえない,でも,わたしはあなたにあう Anatano iukotowa kikoenai, demo, watashiwa anatani au
V2
I don’t hear silence, ちんもくが きこえない Chinmokuga kikoenai
it saddens me now. それはいまわたしをかなしませる Sorewa ima watashio kanashimaseru

Trains no longer spin. れっしゃはかいてんしなくなる Resshawa kaiten shinakunaru
Will water power my wheel? みずはわたしのホイールにどうりょくをきょうきゅうする Mizuwa watashino hoiiruni douryokuo kyoukyuu suru
She planted seeds within me, かのじょはわたしにたねをまいた Kanojowa watashini taneo maita
tended to them delicately. せんさいにせわをした Sensaini sewao shita
As I lay in my chamber, じぶんのへやでよこたわっているとき Jibunnoheyade yokotawatte irutoki
dancing with my health. わたしはけんこうでおどる Watashiwa kenkoude odoru

PRE2
Welcome to the glass age ガラスのじだいにようこそ Garasuno jidaini youkoso
This screen is here to stay このけしきはここにある Konokeshikiwa kokoniaru

CHORUS
Are you watching me? わたしをみてる? Watashio miteru?
Are you watching me? わたしをみてる? Watashi o miteru?
I see you, though I cannot hear a word you say. あなたのいうことはきこえない,でも,わたしはあなたにあう Anatano iukotowa kikoenai, demo, watashiwa anatani au
BRIDGE
When you shine your light onto my dark side, わたしのくらやみにあなたのひかりをてらすとき Watashino kurayamini anatano hikario terasutoki
I’m gonna be alright. わたしはきっとだいじょうぶ Watashiwa kitto daijoubu
V3
I am pilot, わたしはパイロット Watashiwa pairotto
passing my torch on, わたしのトーチをわたす Watashino toochi o watasu

my gift to you is something true. あなたへのおくりものはほんもの Anataeno okurimonowa honmono
I won’t fade out, even if you feel afraid. おそれていてもきえない
Osoreteitemo kienai
Take a ride out into the ever-blue. いつもエバーブルーにのって
Itsumo ebaa buruu ni notte
