ポルカドットスティングレイ (Polkadot Stingray) – ミドリ (Midori) Translation 

Kanji: taken from the booklet

Translation

Title: Green

 

I hate you, ah,

I envy you

who are willing to forgive me.

It seems sarcastic*,

the fact that you seem so happy

and that I want to make you suffer.

 

It’s painful, ah,

Every day, in my head,

I drown you in the bathtub.

I’m at my limit, ah,

it pisses me off that I’m in pieces

so I can’t tell that to anyone.

 

I would like to think that

I’m better off as a happy person

 

I know for what purpose

I’ve become so cute.

I can already feel that

I will never be able to forgive you.

Yours are just illusions, iye

 

I hate you, ah,

I envy you

who are willing to forgive me.

It seems sarcastic*,

the fact that you seem so happy and that I want to make you suffer.

Every day, inside my head,

I put you on the railway and wait for the train,

you ask for forgiveness but it’s no use:

every time those words won’t come to my hear.

 

Ah, those egoistic words

just pile up on the bottom of my sea.

 

I hate you so much,

it’s fine even if you won’t vanish so, in front of me,

please cry and say it’s over,

say everyday “I’m not happy”.

 

I would like to think that

I’m better off as a happy person.

 

I will not understand this for my whole life,

but if it’s the head of the you I feel so intimate with,

I know I’ll inevitably end up to mistake you for someone else.

 

I know that.

 

I hate you, ah,

I envy you

who are willing to forgive me.

It seems sarcastic*,

the fact that you seem so happy

and that I want to make you suffer.

 

Notes and other

*=I think here it should interpreted as “ironic”. In japanese, there’s no particular distinction between these two words.

Green is the colour of envy, that’s why it has been chosen as the title.
