    ウォーオーオー…
    ウォーオーオー…
    ウォーオーオー…
    ウォーオーオー…

    何かをやれば叩かれる
    反論すれば大炎上
    揚げ足取られて拡散中
    とかくにこの世は住みにくい

    フェイクなニュースを真に受けて
    犯人探しか魔女狩りか
    噂がホントでも偽りでも
    この際 どうでもいいじゃねえか

    大切なことは
    目立たない心がけ
    目の前の問題 知らない 見てない
    存在消して 責任転嫁
    波風立てなきゃHAPPY

    笑え!
    ワロタ ワロタ ワロタ ワロタピーポー
    どこの誰か名前隠して騒げ!
    ワロタ ワロタ ワロタ ワロタピーポー
    人の群れに紛れ石を投げろ!

    ウォーオーオー…
    ウォーオーオー…
    ウォーオーオー…
    ウォーオーオー…

    対岸の火事なんか他人事
    安全地帯から見物中
    正義とかモラルとか良心とか
    そんなもん どこかに捨ててしまえ!

    面倒な勇気
    勘違いの偽善者
    何頼まれたって できない やらない
    感情捨てて リスク回避
    何もしなけりゃOK!

    逃げろ!
    ニゲタ!ニゲタ!ニゲタ!ニゲタピーポー
    愛も夢も友も何にもいらね
    ニゲタ!ニゲタ!ニゲタ!ニゲタピーポー
    何で生きてるのか教えてくれ!

    ウォーオーオー…
    ウォーオーオー…
    ウォーオーオー…
    ウォーオーオー…

    そこにいるのか?
    それともいないふりか?
    匿名希望のあいつこいつ
    見分けがつかない 生存証明
    大きな声出して 叫べ!

    笑え!
    ワロタ ワロタ ワロタ ワロタピーポー
    どこの誰か名前隠して騒げ!

english translation

    WOOOOOO…
    WOOOOOO…
    WOOOOOO…
    WOOOOOO…

    Do something and you’ll get bashed
    Argue back and there’ll be a flame war
    People pick on your faults and their words keep spreading
    Anyhow, living in this world is hard

    Treating fake news as if they were real
    Is this a criminal investigation? A witch hunt?
    Whether the rumours are real or not
    At this moment, who cares

    The important thing is
    To stay under the radar
    When there’re problems in front of you
    Say you don’t know and can’t see
    Erase their existence and shift responsibilities
    Don’t make trouble, now that’s HAPPY

    Laugh!
    LOL LOL LOL, the LOL people
    Someone somewhere, hide your name and make some noise!
    LOL LOL LOL, the LOL people
    Throw the stones of chaos into the crowd!

    WOOOOOO…
    WOOOOOO…
    WOOOOOO…
    WOOOOOO…

    Fire on the other shore is other people’s business
    Just watch from the safe zone
    Integrity, morals, conscience
    Just throw these things away!

    Courage is trouble
    The hypocrites just get things wrong
    Whatever you’re asked to do
    Say you can’t do and won’t do
    Dump feelings and avoid risks
    Do nothing, now that’s OK!

    Flee!
    Flee flee flee, the fleeing people
    You need no love, no dreams, no friends
    Flee flee flee, the fleeing people
    What do you even live for? Tell me!

    WOOOOOO…
    WOOOOOO…
    WOOOOOO…
    WOOOOOO…

    Are you there?
    Or pretending to be not there?
    You and you who want to hide your names
    With your indistinguishable proof of existence
    Raise your voice and shout!

    Laugh!
    LOL LOL LOL, the LOL people
    Someone somewhere, hide your name and make some noise!
    LOL LOL LOL, the LOL people
    Throw the stones of chaos into the crowd!

    Flee!
    Flee flee flee, the fleeing people
    You need no love, no dreams, no friends
    Flee flee flee, the fleeing people
    What do you even live for? Tell me!

    WOOOOOO…
    WOOOOOO…
    WOOOOOO…
    WOOOOOO…
