♫ Slide into the shimmering surface ♫
2つの世界の狭間で
00:28
♫ between two worlds. ♫
キラキラ光る水面へと滑り出し
00:31
♫ Standing at the center of time ♫
ほどけていく時の
00:37
♫ as it uncurls. ♫
中心にいて
00:40
♫ Cutting through the veil of illusion. ♫
幻想のベールを切り開き
00:45
♫ Moving beyond past conclusions. ♫
過去の結果を超えて進もう
00:49
♫ Wondering if all my doubt and confusion will clear. ♫
疑いや混乱は すべて晴れるだろうかと惑いながら
00:53
♫ If I could be anywhere, ♫
どこへでも行けるなら
01:00
♫ if I could be anywhere, ♫
どこへでも行けるなら
01:04
♫ if I could be anywhere right now, ♫
今すぐ どこへでも行けるなら
01:09
♫ I would want to be here. ♫
俺はここにいたい
01:12
♫ Searching for the future ♫
俺達が捨ててきたものの中に
01:18
♫ among the things we're throwing away. ♫
未来を探しながら
01:20
♫ Trying to see the world ♫
俺達が毎日生み出す
01:26
♫ through the junk we produce everyday. ♫
ゴミを通して 世界を見たい
01:28
♫ They say nothing lasts forever, ♫
何も永遠には続かないと言うけど
01:35
♫ but all the plastic ever made is still here. ♫
作られてきたプラスチックは みんなまだここにある
01:38
♫ And no amount of closing our eyes ♫
いくら目をつぶっても
01:42
♫ will make it disappear. ♫
消えてなくなりはしない
01:45
♫ If I could be anywhere, ♫
どこへでも行けるなら
01:50
♫ if I could be anywhere, ♫
どこへでも行けるなら
01:54
♫ if I could be anywhere in history, ♫
歴史上のどこへでも行けるなら
01:58
♫ I would want to be here. ♫
俺はここにいたい

♫ The Romans, the Spanish ♫
ローマ帝国も スペインも
02:07
♫ the British, the Dutch, ♫
大英帝国も オランダも
02:09
♫ American exceptionalism, so out of touch. ♫
例外主義のアメリカも まるでわかってない
02:11
♫ The folly of empire repeating its course, ♫
帝国の愚は繰り返される
02:15
♫ imposing its will ♫
いつの時代も
02:19
♫ and ruling by force ♫
意志を押しつけ
02:21
♫ on and on through time. ♫
力で支配してきた
02:24
♫ But the world can't take it very much longer. ♫
でも世界には もう許容できない
02:27
♫ We're not going to make it ♫
もっと強く賢くならないと
02:31
♫ unless we're smarter and stronger. ♫
やっていけはしない
02:33
♫ The world is going to shake itself free of our greed ♫
世界は人間の強欲を
02:35
♫ somehow. ♫
いつか振り払うだろう
02:39
♫ If I could be anywhere, ♫
どこへでも行けるなら
02:46
♫ if I could be anywhere in time, ♫
時をどこへでも行けるなら
02:50
♫ if I could be anywhere and change things, ♫
どこへでも行って 何かを変えられるなら
02:55
♫ it would have to be now. ♫
それは 今ここだよね
02:58
♫ They say nothing last forever, ♫
何も永遠には続かないと言うけど
03:04
♫ but all the plastic ever made is still here. ♫
作られてきたプラスチックは みんなまだここにある
03:07
♫ And no amount of closing our eyes ♫
いくら目をつぶっても
03:12
♫ will make it disappear. ♫
消えてなくなりはしない
03:14
♫ And the world can't take it ♫
世界にはもう
03:19
♫ very much longer. ♫
許容できない
03:22
♫ We're not going to make it ♫
もっと強く賢くならないと
03:24
♫ unless we're smarter and stronger. ♫
やっていけはしない
03:26
♫ The world's gonna shake itself free of our greed ♫
世界は人間の強欲を
03:28
♫ somehow. ♫
いつか振り払うだろう
03:32
♫ And the world can't take it, that you can see. ♫
世界がもう許容できないのは お前にだってわかるだろう
03:35
♫ If the oceans don't make it, neither will we. ♫
海にできないなら 人間にだって無理だ
03:39
♫ The world's gonna shake itself all the way free ♫
世界はいつかすっかり
03:44
♫ somehow. ♫
自由になるだろう
03:48
♫ If I could be anywhere, ♫
どこへでも行けるなら
03:51
♫ if I could be anywhere in time, ♫
