Japanese lyricsEdit

[RYUK]
見ろよ
地面に張り付きうごめき

[REM]
夢見て足掻き運命に抗う奴ら

[RYUK]
笑えるね 

[REM]
無駄なのに

[RYUK]
哀れな人間たちよ

[REM]
果てない欲望に操られ 満たされずに生きる

[RYUK]
努力とか忍耐は報われない

[REM]
それでもただ 見返りあると信じ足掻いてる

[RYUK]
こっちはもう退屈で死にそうだぜ!

[BOTH]
所詮その目には真実が見えない
夢に囚われ

[REM]
求めることが 

[RYUK]
愛と信じ 踊る
喜劇だな

[REM]
悲劇でしょ

[RYUK]
愛してもがき続けて

[REM]
どうして愛なんかに足をすくわれるのか

[RYUK]
馬鹿だからだろ?それしかねぇさ!

[BOTH]
所詮人間なんて 指をこぼれる砂をすくい続けて

[RYUK]
報われると 

[REM]
信じながら嘆く

[RYUK]
ただ祈り呪い生きて死ぬ
自分の夢に騙されて

[REM]
食べて寝て愛し憎む 脱げない靴を履き

[RYUK]
踊り続ける

[BOTH]
所詮その命 

[RYUK]
死神の手の中

[BOTH]
哀れな人生 

[REM]
見てられない 

[RYUK]
退屈すぎる

[REM]
これじゃ気が滅入るばかりだ 

[RYUK]
奴らで少し遊んでみるか
これはどうだ?

English lyricsEdit

[RYUK]
(sighs)
Look at how they crawl around
Upon the ground
Like little ants

[REM]
Yes, but how they fascinate
Confusing fate
With what is merely chance

[RYUK]
Isn't it a laugh

[REM]
Isn't it a shame

[RYUK]
Thinking there is someone in heaven to blame

[REM]
Yes, but even while blaming fate for the lives that they lead
They hope for the lives that they need

[RYUK]
Living every day till the day they die
Never getting answers

[REM]
Yet still asking why
Going through the motions as if there will be a reward

[RYUK]
While we stay eternally bored!

[BOTH]
They're only human
They don't see
Who they are is who they'll always be
Only human, after all

[RYUK]
So they push and they shove

[REM]
With this thing they call love

[BOTH]
Till they fall!

[RYUK]
Isn't it a farce?

[REM]
Isn't it a waste?

[RYUK]
Struggling to face what can never be faced

[REM]
Yes, but maybe death can release something more than we share

[RYUK]
I really don't know and don't care

[BOTH]
They're only human
Standing still
Doomed to live pushing boulders uphill
Only human, after all

[RYUK]
So they give and they take

[REM]
Hoping someone will help break their fall

[RYUK]
They will pray, curse, live die
Never knowing their truth is another man's lie

[REM]
Eat, sleep, love, hate
Like a leaf blowing in the wind

[RYUK]
Watch them all vacillate

[BOTH]
They're only human
They can't see

[RYUK]
All the years they could give you and me

[BOTH]
Only human, after all

[REM]
So they give and we take

[RYUK]
Till their silly hearts break

[REM]
Looking down from above
I'm intrigued by their love

[RYUK]
So let's call!
(spoken:) Hmmm, let's call.
