Tobby tried to sing absurd

It’s here, yo~ \(^o^)

So, here’s my cover of “absurd,” a song that was made by Kujou Wata, a Japanese friend of mine. It’s a song that was originally sung by IA, and as for what it’s about, well, there’s the captions in the video and the transcript that I’ll be adding below in this post.

Also, I worked on the video for this cover, with the illustration made by Isagane, who gave me permission to use said illustration. I used AviUtl for the video effects and stuff again, which I previously used for the video for my arrangement + vocal cover of Itou Kashitarou’s “Sayonara Dake ga Jinsei da.” It’s somewhat hard to work with, considering the specs of my computer, but I still had a worthwhile time with it! I took a considerable while with it, though, with my skill level and some more important stuff outside the Net being some of the major factors there. And compared to the production of the video, I think the production of the audio took a shorter while. All this took a lot of effort, alright, and I’m very glad about being able to reach this point!

Now, here’s this cover’s mp3! Also, honest constructive feedback is highly encouraged and will be highly appreciated!

Oh, and right below this is a transcript of the lyrics of this song, along with Romaji transliteration and English translation.


absurd

作曲作詞:九条わた

歌詞:

とある偉い人が言うには人間とは
誰かを愛するために生きてるらしい
そんじゃ誰も愛せない僕は人としてさ
生きてる価値なんて無いんじゃないの

煩いなめんどいな
近寄らないで鬱陶しい

ねぇどうして どうして
こんな僕に君は笑顔をくれるのか
ねぇどうして どうして
こんな僕の手を君は握ってるのか
ああ 馬鹿らしいな

とある偉い人が言うには人生とは
必ず何か目的があるらしい
そんじゃ何にも求めない僕は人というより
燃えないごみに近いんじゃないの

強がって粋がって
本音は誰も知らなくて

ねぇ どうして どうして
こんな僕に君は笑顔をくれるのか
ねぇ どうして どうして
こんな僕の手を君は握ってるのか
ああ ちょっと寂しいな

ねぇ どうして どうして
こんな僕に君は笑顔をくれるのか
ねぇ どうして どうして
こんな僕の手を君は握ってるのか

ねぇ どうして どうして
こんな僕に君は言葉をくれるのか
ねぇ どうして どうして
こんな僕を君は抱きしめているのか
ああ馬鹿らしいな
ちょっと嬉しいな

English Translation (translated by The Overlord Bear):

Some bigshot once said that humans
Live for the sake of loving someone, or something like that.
In that case, then I, who can’t love anyone,
Shouldn’t be able to live as something remotely human, no?

I’m troublesome, I’m tiresome,
So don’t go near me, or else you’ll grow gloomy…

So hey, why is it, why is it
That you smile for this sort of me?
And hey, why is it, why is it
That you’re holding on to the hands of this sort of me?
Ah, it feels so absurd, you know…

Some bigshot once said that life
Should have a purpose, or something like that.
In that case, then someone like me, who isn’t wishing for anything,
Should be closer to being unburnt garbage than being human, no?

I pretend to be strong, I pretend to be smart,
And they’re why no one knows my true self…

So hey, why is it, why is it
That you smile for this sort of me?
And hey, why is it, why is it
That you’re holding on to the hands of this sort of me?
Ah, it feels a little lonely, you know…

So hey, why is it, why is it
That you smile for this sort of me?
And hey, why is it, why is it
That you’re holding on to the hands of this sort of me?

So hey, why is it, why is it
That you talk with this sort of me?
And hey, why is it, why is it
That you’re embracing this sort of me?
Ah, it feels so absurd, you know…
But I feel a little happy too…
