God, Buddha

Lyrics: Ringo Shiina & Shuutoku Mukai
Music: Ringo Shiina
Arrangement: Ringo Shiina & Youichi Murata

I want to be sated - soak deep into my heart
If I could get drunk on your endless talent*, then let me take everything in; my talents* aren't enough
I want to sleep; I want to forget about being alive
My mind's* restless; don't shed light on my sham sleep...so detestable

That's right, if you look closely at the ghost's true nature, it's just the passing of mankind
This salty, fishy lifeblood is boisterous
Lord have mercy on me! God, Buddha. I'll grovel, and once I throw up a smoke screen, there'll be an uproar over a small fire

We'll mutually squeeze the lives out of each other, world. We're the same in that regard
The sly, scorching scented fleeting world is boisterous
Lord have mercy on me! God, Buddha. Those excited guys are humorously making much ado about nothing
Even so, what we're most afraid of is our own selves
Whenever we feel on edge, we inadvertently feel a hopeless uneasiness

I want to play; I want to be proud as someone's lover
Thrust these greedy minds* into the depths of Hell

The impermanence of all things repeats
Sexual urges revive
A life in the freezing city
That missing guy
Before one knows it, his figure bewilders

* Here no kanji is given, so the word could actually either mean "brain/mind" or "talent"

Kamisama, Hotokesama

充たしたいのよ五臓六腑まで沁みわたつてよ
留度ないのう酔へる物なら皆呑ませておくれ もの足りないのう
眠りたいのよ生きてゐることも忘れたいのよ
忙しないのう狸寝入りを照らさないでおくれ …うらめしや

さうだよ幽霊の正体見たり 人間様のお通りよ
塩ツ辛いナマ臭い生き血がかしましい
南無阿弥陀仏!神様、仏様 這ひつくばつて煙幕を張れば小火騒ぎ

交互に人生の上前ハネ合う 世間様おたがひ様
狡ツ辛いキナ臭い浮き世はかしましい
南無阿弥陀仏!神様、仏様 色めき立つた奴等面白可笑しく空騒ぎ
ところが此方人等一等恐いのは自らよ
ささくれ立つてはついいけない胸騒ぎ

遊びたいのよ誰ぞ好い人と善がりたいのよ
慾深いのう地獄の淵へ突き落としておくれ

繰返される諸行無常
よみがへる性的衝動
冷凍都市の暮らし
行方知れずの彼奴
何時の間にか姿眩まし
