本当は私 気づいていたんです
あなたが私を見ていてくれたこと
じゃあ リセさんも

Alright, alright, whoa
Why you pointing at me with that knife?
I've been cuttin' corners all my life, girl
But terror doesn't blossom overnight, no
She's runnin' through the city in a rampage
Pressin' on her fingers 'til the bones break
There's blood all in her nose from the propane
But a needle to skin will make the pain fade (yeah)

Yeah, ah-ah
This is what I do, ah-ah
Take another bite, ah-ah
Big enough to chew

She said, "Careful or you'll lose it"
But girl, I'm only human
And I know there's a blade where your heart is
And you know how to use it
And you can take my flesh if you want, girl
But baby, don't abuse it
These voices in my head, screaming, "Run now"
I'm praying that they're human

Rollin' rollin', rollin' back your eyes to your mind, like
Oh, whoa, the pressure in the gland's tight
Yeah, whoa, yeah, it's either kill or be killed, like
Oh, whoa, the blood is either poured or it's spilt, like

Yeah, ah-ah
This is what I do, ah-ah
Take another bite, ah-ah
Big enough to chew

She said, "Careful, or you'll lose it"
But girl, I'm only human
And I know there's a blade where your heart is
And you know how to use it
And you can take my flesh if you want, girl
But baby, don't abuse it
These voices in my head, screaming, "Run now"
I'm praying that they're human

Alright, alright, whoa
Love you but you cannot spend the night
Nah, I've been alone almost all my life, girl
And shit like that don't change up overnight
Sweet, I let you sleep in my tee (tee)
Tell me the things that you don't normally tweet (tweet)
Acid and LSD and smokin' blunts on the beach (beach)
69 down 69 so we can both get a piece, yeah
I've been cuttin' corners like my whole life
Backstabbin' bitches tryna kill me with a whole knife
Day I die will be the only day a nigga ghostwrite
When I go they'll treat me like a god if this shit goes right

She said, "Careful, or you'll lose it"
But girl, I'm only human
And I know there's a blade where your heart is
And you know how to use it
And you can take my flesh if you want, girl
But baby, don't abuse it (calm down)
These voices in my head, screaming, "Run now" (don't run)
I'm praying that they're human

Please understand that I'm trying my hardest
My head's a mess but I'm trying regardless
Anxiety is one hell of a problem
She's latchin' onto me, I can't resolve it
It's not right, it's not fair
It's not fair, it's not fair
It's not fair, it's not fair




Oh, no, no, no, ooh-ooh
Don't run, don't run

Overall Meaning

The first few lines of the song are delivered in Japanese, which may seem a little out of place but in reality, it is more about expressing the band's unique style and making a statement that they are different from other bands. The phrase "本当は私 気づいていたんです" means "Actually, I noticed" which can be interpreted as the lead singer realizing the situation he is in and the consequences that come with it. The song is about living life on the edge and embracing the dark side of one's personality. The rest of the lyrics talk about a girl who has gone on a rampage and is willing to do anything to get what she wants. The singer admits that he is a part of this lifestyle and knows what she is capable of.


The chorus "Careful, or you'll lose it, but girl, I'm only human, and I know there's a blade where your heart is, And you know how to use it, and you can take my flesh if you want, girl, but baby, don't abuse it" is about the potential dangers that come when one decides to get involved with someone who is wild and unpredictable. The singer admits that he is vulnerable and can be "consumed" by her, but he does not want her to hurt him too much.


Overall, the song is about the consequences of living a dangerous life and the risks involved with getting involved with someone who is equally reckless.
