You Cannot Run Away

Someone secretly looks at you.
Someone is taking a picture of you.

You look restlessly looking around.

You cannot find a suspicious person like that.
You cannot find a camera or hole that looks like that.

Someone is listening to you secretly.
Someone is eavesdropping on you for sure.

You uneasyly lower your voice.

No matter how much you searched for a wiretap, 
such a thing will not come out.

Someone is trailing you.
Someone is constantly monitoring you.

It is your destiny to keep escaping.
You move to a habitat and be confused by crowds.

Still, you cannot run away.
Because someone else who cannot erase is inside you.
 


【 逃げ切れない 】

あなたは密かに視られてる。
ジッと盗撮されている。

 あなたはキョロキョロ
 あたりを見まわす。

  それらしき不審人物見当たらない。
  それらしきカメラも穴も見つからない。

あなたは密かに聴かれてる。
シッカリ盗聴されている。

 あなたはオドオド
 声をひそめる。

  いくら盗聴器さがしても
  そんなものは出てこない。

あなたは尾行されている。
常に監視されている。

 逃げ続けるのはあなたの定め。
 棲家を移り、雑踏に紛れ。

  それでも、あなたは逃げ切れない。
  あなたの中の消せない他人。
