My Confidence Song
Mr.Children Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

マシンガンみたいに僕を責めて
愛しき人は去れど
あどけない日の面影に
すがれば傷つくだけ

いたずらな時の流れが
また僕を試してるなら
さぁ どこまでも流れてゆくよ
Everywhere I'll go

頼りなく 平和な日々に (Ah 頼りない この国は)
埋もれ僕らは もろく
愚かな自由を振りかざして (Ah ゆがんでく秩序は)
ペナルティーがなきゃ正義

永遠なる欲望の果てに
誰もが土に戻るなら
失くすものは何もないはずさ
Everywhere I'll go
さぁ どこまでも流れてゆくよ




Everywhere I'll go
Oh, everywhere I'll go

Overall Meaning

The song "My Confidence Song" by Mr.Children is a reflection on the fleeting nature of life and the struggle to find meaning and purpose. The opening lines, "Machine gun-like, blaming me / Though the one I love has gone away / If I cling to the innocent memories of those childish days / I will only get hurt" suggest the singer is facing emotional turmoil, as they are being overwhelmed by past memories while dealing with heartbreak. The lyrics further explore the inescapable nature of time and the pursuit of freedom and justice.


The chorus, "Let's flow wherever / The mischievous flow of time / Tests me again and again" echoes the idea that life is constantly changing and moving forward, and the singer must navigate this uncertain journey while grappling with their own shortcomings. The lines "In this unreliable and peaceful life / We bury ourselves and break easily / Waving the foolish freedom / The twisted order is just without penalty" appear to touch on societal issues and the complexities of morality.


Overall, "My Confidence Song" is a poignant and introspective piece that delves into the struggles and uncertainty of life, and the importance of finding one's own path amidst the chaos.

My beloved person blamed me like a machine gun and left.
It only hurts if it comes to the invisible days' eyes
If mischievous time flow is trying me again,
Well, I'm going to go anywhere
oh, everywhete I'll go
Unreliable and Peaceful days are continuing,
We are brittle and collapse
I honor foolish freedom and believe it is justice if there is no penalty
Because everyone will die at the end of everlasting desire
There should not be anything to lose
oh, everywhere I'll go
Well, I'm going to go anywhereoh, everywhere I'll go
