like a prayer
like a prayer...
like a prayer
like a prayer...

Daydreaming is useless
Imagination...

瞑想、妄想取り巻く空想 比較の中に渦巻く感情
囚わる愛情 埋めつく欲情 瞳の奥に小さな無常
反応しない無意味なTV 麻痺した世界に奇妙な色彩
知らず知らず汚染され 残った世代が常に自爆
嘘で固めた白い視線 錯覚している灰色の誘惑
せめぎ合い 人々もまれ さからい叫んだ交差地点
And then we must comprehend
Life will prevail in the end

like a prayer...

Create a cause of over relation
Emotions in anticipation
Expresionless...Temptation...
Daydreaming is useless
Imagination...
Infestation...Sensation...
Vibration...Obsession...
Conception...Confession...
Expectation

ごまかす情報真実は闇 葬り去られた後の余韻
幻覚錯覚二つの間 空は誰も裏切らない
百戦錬磨の行く末に 残るは互角の残骸一つ
納得失格繰り返し とにかく知らずに渡り歩く
まやかし続けた過ちは 結局遠い急坂道
波動心臓早すぎる鼓動 俺の期待はちょうど路頭
And then we must comprehend
Life will prevail in the end

like a prayer
like a prayer

like a prayer...

迷った勇気乗った軌道 そっと降った空に希望
橋にしっかりつかまって 落ちないように支えてて
全てを感じ、信じ、ちょっと楽に幸せ感じたら
同じ痛み分かち合えるそれはそんなに遠くない
覚えきれない言葉の数々
いくつも心に書き留めながら
待ってる未来と共に歩み、学び、進み、生きている
言葉に出しては言えない何か抱えて俺達生きている
一体全体何の為?憎しみ奪い誰のため?
傷なめ合うもの同士痛みを癒す者同士
静かにそっと耳を澄まし
聞こえてくるけど夢らしい!

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Globe's song "Like a Prayer" seem to be contemplating the state of the world, and the hope for a better future. The repeated phrase "like a prayer" feels like a call to action, an urging to keep faith in a better tomorrow, despite the feelings of hopelessness that may be present in the present. The lines "waiting 4 the next century like a prayer" reinforce this idea, suggesting that perhaps we won't see the changes we are hoping for in our lifetimes, but we can still hold onto hope for the future.


However, the verses of the song paint a more chaotic picture. Phrases like "比較の中に渦巻く感情" (emotions swirling in comparison) and "知らず知らず汚染され" (unknowingly contaminated) hint at the difficulty of finding clarity in the midst of the world's problems. There are references to love and desire, but they are tainted by a feeling of being trapped or overwhelmed. The lines "嘘で固めた白い視線" (white gaze solidified by lies) and "まやかし続けた過ちは 結局遠い急坂道" (falsehoods continue, ultimately a steep path) suggest a sense of futility, that perhaps the truth is too obscured to ever fully uncover.


However, the song ends on a note of hope. The lyrics shift to a more personal perspective, with lines like "覚えきれない言葉の数々 いくつも心に書き留めながら" (countless words remembered, written down in my heart) suggesting an individual journey of growth and learning. The lines "言葉に出しては言えない何か抱えて俺達生きている" (we live while holding onto something we can't put into words) hint at a deeper meaning to the struggles we all face. And ultimately, the repeated refrain of "like a prayer" suggests that even though we may not know exactly what we are praying for, holding onto hope and keeping faith is a powerful thing.
