Tokyo Subtropics

Lyrics: Saiko Kawamura
Music: ZENTA
Arrangement: Seiji Kameda

Oh, I lose my way on a trackless path in the jungle
Suddenly it blocks my way - the collapsed Tokyo Dome
If it keeps people at bay for another 100 years
No one will be able to control the dark forest

Can you believe it? This was the capital of that Japan
The tale of ancient times

Here Tokyo is subtropics now, a squall* every three hours
Buildings are huge planters*, no use arguing about it, it's a heat island
That's why Tokyo is subtropics now, a parade of natural disasters
The earth heals wounds - spitting out the poison, it returns to normal

Now people can only live on the northern island
The country's significance disappears, an empty 200 nautical miles*

If we had noticed it in the days of the early 2000's
Would something have changed?

Here Tokyo is subtropics now, a caiman* in Chidorigafuchi*
Crows fluttering about Shibuya, it's a scorching hot hellish heat island
That's why Tokyo is subtropics now, dogs run on the Tokyo Expressway
The earth heals wounds - when we pay for our mistakes, it'll return to normal

If you head south to the sanctuary, it's a tropical rain forest
You won't return back alive

Here Tokyo is subtropics now, nobody paid attention to it
Indeed the world changes, we couldn't stop the heat island
That's why Tokyo is subtropics now, a rusted technical civilization
The earth heals wounds - we merely return back to dust

* A squall is a sudden strong wind or brief turbulent storm
* A planter is a decorative pot for house plants
* 200 nautical miles refers to an exclusive economic zone a country has over marine resources. More can be read about it here
* A caiman is a crocodile similar to an alligator
* Chidorigafuchi is a popular spot in Tokyo famous for cherry blossoms

Oh michi naki michi wo mayou JANGURU no naka

Mou kita no shima shika hito wa sumenaku natte
Kuni no imi wa naku naru munashii nihyaku kairi

Mada nisen-nen hajime no koro kidzuite ireba

Dakara Toukyou ima anettai sabitsuita kikaibunmei
Chikyuu wa kizu wo iyasu watashitachi wa tada tsuchi ni kaeru dake

東京亜熱帯

作詞:川村サイコ
作曲:土橋善太
編曲:亀田誠治

Oh 道なき道を 迷うジャングルの中
突如 行く手さえぎる 崩れ落ちた東京ドーム
もう 100年間も 人を寄せ付けなけりゃ
誰も 支配できない 暗黒の密林

信じられるか あの日本の 都だったと
遠い昔の話

ここは東京 今 亜熱帯 3時間おきにスコール
ビルは巨大なプランター 問答無用の ヒートアイランド
だから東京 今 亜熱帯 天変地異のパレード
地球は傷を癒やす 毒を吐き出して 元に戻るだけ

もう 北の島しか 人は住めなくなって
国の 意味は無くなる 虚しい200海里

まだ2000年 初めの頃 気付いていれば
何か変わってたかな

ここは東京 今 亜熱帯 千鳥ヶ淵にカイマン
渋谷飛びかうカラス 灼熱地獄の ヒートアイランド
だから東京 今 亜熱帯 首都高走る犬たち
地球は傷を癒やす 自業自得だと 元に戻るだけ

サンクチュアリを 南下したら 熱帯雨林
生きて帰れはしない

ここは東京 今 亜熱帯 誰も気にしてなかった
まさか世界が変わる 止められなかった ヒートアイランド
だから東京 今 亜熱帯 錆びついた機械文明
地球は傷を癒やす 私達はただ 土に帰るだけ
