BLACK-TAIL ~ vistlip

「BLACK-TAIL」
vistlip

黒い尻尾に気付かれないよに frillの裾気にするlady
階段下 誰かがほら覗き込んで見てるから

新宿駅東口でタバコふかしながら夢を見る
あなたは只くだらなくて 聞き手役を拒否

街頭vision切れた彼ほら
惜しいことしたんじゃないの?なんてね
同じ髪で同じ服で どれがどれ?どれとどれ?

御苑前のBARでかましたfakeで
言葉巧みなキャラ作りのlady
釣られた哀れな魚はただ 丸い目でギョロリと睨む

裏道路地伊勢丹辺り マジェスティーのケツに跨る
渋谷移動して道玄坂まで どれどれと味見して

深海に溺れて沈むlady ほろ酔いで崩れたmake直し
ごめんね、一つ物申させて『どいて下さるかしら?』

フラフラになってトイレで一人play
鏡に映ったこいつ猫かぶり
帰路について信号赤のALTA前
哀れぶって泣く朝方5時

新宿駅東口でタバコふかしながら夢を見る
あなたは只くだらなくて 聞き手役を拒否

‘BLACK-TAIL’
by vistlip

A lady who minds the bottom of her frills so her black tail won’t be noticed,
’cause, see, there’s someone peering in, watching from under the stairs

You dream while smoking a cigarette at the east entrance to Shinjuku station,*
You’re just good-for-nothing, refusing to be a good listener

Look, his vision blacked out in the street
“You did something regrettable, didn’t you?”
With the same hair, the same skin,
Which is which?  Which one?

At a BAR in front of the Imperial garden, among the crammed in fakes,
a lady who creates a persona skilled with words,
the pitiable fish that got hooked just ogle with round eyes

Straddling the rear end of a Majesty in the back-road alleys around Isetan,**
migrating from Shibuya to Dougenzaka, having a taste of this and that

A lady drowning and sinking to the ocean’s depths,
tipsy and fixing her crumbling make up,
Sorry, let me just say one thing “Could you move out the way?”

You get dizzy and play alone in the toilet,
The person reflected in the mirror is a wolf in sheep’s clothing,
A red traffic light in front of ALTA on the way home,***
Crying and acting miserable at 5 in the morning

You dream while smoking a cigarette at the east entrance to Shinjuku station,*
You’re just good-for-nothing, refusing to be a good listener

* Many of the place names mentioned in this song are popular meeting/gathering spots and landmarks in downtown Tokyo:

* Shinjuku station is one of the major transport hubs in the Tokyo metro system.
** The Majesty is a type of motorcycle by Yamaha.  Isetan is a major department store chain.
*** The Shinjuku ALTA building has a famous huge TV screen outside, plus fashion stores and a TV studio inside.
