Goodnight Paradox

Lyrics: Tika α
Composition & Arrangement: Haruo Chikada

"Level Love", my ship1; my ancestor is Napoleon
The prima donna continuing to spin her wheels can't make a fresh start

Hitoyo hitoyo ni hitomi goro2, in time becoming the Goddess of Mercy
The speech balloons of that guy floating in zero gravity are empty
A neglectful symbol

That girl reflecting in an infinity mirror does radio calisthenics: one, two, trois

A deja vu replay, boundless
If we subsist, surely tomorrow will be like yesterday. Goodnight now - lu-lu-lu-lullabye
Innocent realism, heart racing
My love shot, always contrary, a summer vacation I can't reach

From one to garbage, countdown; dozing suddenly
Open twice with a back hip circle; the entrance to eternity

Even the blossoming flowers will eventually scatter3, but that guy is eternal
The armadillo twists, and is unclear; the present fate
At a deadlock, initialize

That girl stuck in the cul-de-sac, and a yoiyassa4 to the festival band

A Maharaja in pajamas, so very strange
When we dance, the pendulum gently sways - goodnight now, a burnt bamboo grove5
Saying "Excuse me" Maharaja goes every which way
When I realize it, oops; this is Jamaica; probably gonna play hookey

Replay deja vu around the clock
An infinite world with one cut from dreams - goodnight now, this is the end
An innocent realism, a weekend clock
At the time limit; what day is it today? Who knows? It's summer vacation

* [1] - this seems to be from a part of the phrase used to learn the periodic table of elements. In this case "Hydrogen, Helium, Lithium, Beryllium, Boron, Carbon, Nitrogen, Oxygen, Fluorine, Neon". However, the kanji "水平" is different than typical "水兵" that is used.
* [2] - a device used to remember the square root of 2. It also has the meaning of "My body is lonely these days. Even one night with someone else (besides my husband) is fine, so..."
* [3] - part of a famous Japanese poem
* [4] - yoiyassa is a chant said during autumn festivals in western Japan meaning "prosperity"
* [5] - the Japanese phrase "takeyabuyaketa", which means "a burnt bamboo grove" is a palindrome

Suihei RIIBE boku no fune gosenzo wa NAPOREON

Hitoyo hitoyo ni hitomi goro yukuyuku wa Kanzeon

Awasekagami ni utsutta ano ko RAJIOtaisou WAN TSUU TOROWA

DEJABU na RIPUREI kuukuu BAKUBAKU
Tabereba kitto ashita wa kinou mou oyasumi RA RA RA RARABAI
Mujaki na RIARIZUMU shinzou bakubaku

Ichi kara gomi made count down utatane wa yaniwani
Sakaagari nikai de hiraku yo kuon e no iriguchi

Iro wa nioedo chirinuru wo aitsu wa tokoshie ni

おやすみパラドックス

作詞:ティカ・α
作曲・編曲:近田春夫

水平リーベ僕の船 ご先祖はナポレオン
空回り続けるプリマは ふりだしに戻れない

一夜一夜にひとみごろ ゆくゆくは観世音
無重力に浮かぶあいつの ふきだしは空っぽ
なげやりなシンボライズ

合わせ鏡に映ったあのこ ラジオ体操ワン・ツー・トロワ

デジャヴなリプレイ 空々バクバク
食べればきっと明日は昨日 もうおやすみ ラ・ラ・ラ・ララバイ
無邪気なリアリズム 心臓ばくばく
マイラブショット いつもあべこべ 届かない夏休み

1から塵までcount down うたた寝はやにわに
逆上がり二回で開くよ 久遠への入り口

いろはにほへどちりぬるを あいつはとこしえに
アルマジロねじれてうやむや ただいまの行く末
手詰まりでイニシャライズ

袋小路にはまったあのこ 祭り囃子にヨイヤッサ

パジャマでマハラジャ 奇々怪々
踊ればそっと振り子が揺れる もうおやすみ たけやぶやけた
お邪魔でマハラジャ 右往左往
気付けばおっと ここはジャマイカ かもしれないずる休み

デジャヴをリプレイ 四六時中
夢からワンカット無限の世界 もうおやすみ これでおしまい
無邪気なリアリズム 週末時計
タイムリミット 今日はなんにち? えも知れぬ夏休み
