kanji & kana

    長い道程(みちのり)を走り抜け
    やっと山の麓まで来た 夜明け
    前にそびえ立つその夢は
    雲がかかる頂に似ている

    現実は厳しい
    登るのはつらい
    思うように行かない
    あきらめてしまいたくなる

    後ろを振り返るなよ
    努力したとか…
    頑張ったとか…
    口にするな
    今の自分 見せてみろ!
    ここがロドスだ
    さあ ここで跳べ!
    WOW WOW

    月も星もない山道を
    闇に怯えながら歩いた 絶望
    時に逆風に吹かれたり
    強い雨に行く手を阻まれて…

    後から来た人に
    抜かれてしまった
    夢までの地図がない
    運のせいだと石を蹴るのか?

    自分で見せるしかない
    拗ねてみたって
    泣き言言っても
    始まらない
    過去を捨てて生きてみろ!
    ここが舞台だ
    さあ ここで跳べ!
    WOW WOW

    報われるかなんて考えるな
    暗闇でジャンプしろ!

    言い訳するその前に
    まずやってみろ!
    ひたむきな力で

    後ろを振り返るなよ
    努力したとか…
    頑張ったとか…
    口にするな
    今の自分 見せてみろ!
    ここがロドスだ
    さあ ここで跳べ!
    前を向いて
    さあ ここで跳べ!
    WOW WOW

english translation

    Going on a very long journey
    Finally reaching the foothills, at dawn
    The dreams soaring before you
    Seem to be engulfed by the clouds

    Reality is harsh
    Climbing is tough
    Things aren’t going as planned
    And you think of giving up

    Don’t you turn back
    Saying you did your best…
    Or that you tried…
    Don’t utter these words
    Prove it now to yourself!
    Here is Rhodes
    So jump here!
    WOW WOW

    On this moonless, starless mountain road
    Walking in fear of the dark, in despair
    At times against the raging headwinds
    And heavy rain, shielding with your hands

    Those who came after you
    Have passed and overtaken you
    With no map to your dreams
    Will you kick at the stones and blame fate?

    You’ll just have to show yourself
    Even if you nurse your shins
    And whine
    Nothing is going to happen
    Throw the past away and live on!
    Here is the stage
    So jump here!
    WOW WOW

    Don’t think about whether it will pay off
    Just make the jump in the dark!

    Before you make excuses
    Try it out first!
    With single-minded determination

    Don’t you turn back
    Saying you did your best…
    Or that you tried…
    Don’t utter these words
    Prove it now to yourself!
    Here is Rhodes
    So jump here!
    Face forward
    And jump here!
    WOW WOW
