    昨日までの経験とか
    知識なんか荷物なだけ
    風はいつも通り過ぎて
    後に何も残さないよ

    新 しい道を探せ!
    他人の地図を広げるな!
    伏せた目を上げた時に 0 になるんだ

    僕らは夢見てるか?
    未来を信じているか?
    怖いもの知らず 身の程知らず
    無鉄砲なまま
    今 僕らは夢見てるか?
    子どものようにまっさらに…
    支配された鎖 は引きちぎろう
    Change your mind
    Change your mind
    何も知らなくていい Beginner!

    失敗して 恥をかいて
    傷ついたこと トラウマになって
    あんな思い 2度と嫌だと
    賢 くなった大人たちよ

    チャレンジは馬鹿げたこと
    リスク 回避するように
    愚かな計算して何を守るの?

    僕らは生きているか?
    明日も生きていたいか?
    わかったふりして 知ったかぶりで
    夢も久しぶり
    そう 僕らは生きているか?
    命無駄にしてないか?
    脈 を打つ鼓動を今 感じろ!

    Stand up! Together!
    生まれた日 思い出せ!
    誰もが Beginner!
    Stand up! Right away!
    初めから 簡単に
    上手くは行かねえ
    Stand up! Together!
    最初に戻ればいい
    もいちど Beginner!
    Stand up! Right away!
    開き直って 開き直って
    どうにかなるさ
    古いページは破り捨てろ
    さあ 始めようぜ!
    We can be reborn all the time

    僕らは夢見てるか?
    未来を信じているか?
    怖いもの知らず 身の程知らず
    無鉄砲なまま
    今 僕らは夢見てるか?
    子どものようにまっさらに…
    支配された鎖 は引きちぎろう

    何もできない
    ちゃんとできない
    それがどうした?
    僕らは若いんだ
    何もできない
    すぐにできない
    だから僕らに可能性があるんだ

    雨は止んだ
    風は止んだ
    見たことのない
    光 が差すよ
    今が時だ

    君は生まれ変わった Beginner!

english translation

    In your position set!

    All the experiences you made until yesterday
    And your knowledge are only a burden
    The wind will always pass by
    And leave nothing behind

    Look for a new road!
    Don't open someone else's map!
    When you raise your eyes that were looking at the ground you'll become zero

    Are we dreaming?
    Are we believing in future?
    Afraid of nothing, careless of what's our place
    As reckless as we are
    Are we dreaming now?
    We should be as brand new as a child...
    Let's tear off the chains that controlled us
    Change your mind
    Change your mind
    We don't need to know anything Beginner!

    Adults failed and felt ashamed
    And suffering has become their trauma
    Thinking they don't want to feel such pain again
    They have become smart

    Challenges are laughed upon
    What are you protecting with your silly calculations
    In order to avoid risks?

    Are we alive?
    Do we want to be alive tomorrow?
    We pretend we understand, we feign a knowing look
    While we haven't dreamed in a long while
    Yeah, are we alive?
    Aren't we wasting our life?
    Feel now the rhythm pulsing through your veins!

    Stand up! Together!
    Remember the day you were born!
    Everyone's a beginner!
    Stand up! Right away!
    It won't go well
    Easily from the beginning
    Stand up! Together!
    You just need to go back to the beginning
    A beginner again
    Stand up! Right away!
    Be defiant, be defiant
    It will happen somehow
    Tear away the old page
    Come on, let's begin!
    We can be reborn all the time

    Are we dreaming?
    Are we believing in future?
    Afraid of nothing, careless of what's our place
    As reckless as we are
    Are we dreaming now?
    We should be as brand new as a child...
    Let's tear off the chains that controlled us

    I can't do anything
    I can't do it well
    And so?
    We're still young
    I can't do anything
    I can't do it right away
    That's why we have possibilities

    The rain has stopped
    The wind has stopped
    A light we've never seen before
    Is shining
    Now's the time

    You are a reborn beginner!
