“When will you grow up? What the heck is ‘growing up’ in the first place?”

The.Lost.One'S.Weeping.cropped edit

One of the main things we all stress about now or did in the past is about school. With times changing and technology becoming a larger influences in our lives, education itself also changed… to the point that it has become something oppressive.

Its no longer about passion that one has for a goal that decides the future, but letters and numbers written on a piece of paper. A letter decides your place in society. A number decides who you are. If so. . .

“Can you recite your dreams as a child?”

This song, The Lost One’s Weeping, was also another one of the many great pieces that got my attention. People can relate to it… and it addressed a topic that really isn’t usually spoken about. How school has become not an opportunity to achieve our dreams, but a system that has done the exact opposite: taken away dreams… our sense of self… our character.

“I may have forgotten something much more important than my textbook or homework in the classroom.”

People expect you to do extremely well in school, and now with that pressure, dreams are forgotten and you can only face piles and piles of work that never seems to be getting smaller. School is the only thing that matters. Not yourself.

“Can you solve this equation on the abacus?
Can you loosen the rope around that kid’s neck?”

English Lyrics:

A dagger of distrust
Finally pierces a vein,
By suddenly appearing, this weak love,
Even transforms a pole into a lethal weapon.

It’s not fiction.

I do like math and science,
Since I’m useless at Japanese, I hate it,
But if I continue to worry about which is correct,
I feel that they’ll both turn out to be wrong.

Today’s
Homework is
About me
Who has no personality,
It’s just enough,
I’m satisfied,
I’ve started to live,
But why is it, we
Sometimes– no, always
Say we’re sad,
Say we’re lonely?

Can you read the Kanji on the blackboard?
Can you read that kid’s imagination?
Who was it, that dyed his heart black,
Hey, who was it?
Hey, who was it?

Can you solve this equation on the abacus?
Can you loosen the rope around that kid’s neck?
Is it fine, if we remain like this?
Hey, what should I do?
It doesn’t matter anymore…

No matter how much time passes, we’ve
Been carelessly intoxicated by hypnotism,
I’ve always hopelessly hid,
Behind
Arrogance from power I no longer have.

As always,
I can’t
Solve
Yesterday’s homework,
It’s just enough,
I’m satisfied,
I’ve started to live,
But why is it,
The devil deep inside us
Says we want to disappear,
Says we want to die?

Can you read the Kanji on the blackboard?
Can you read that kid’s imagination?
Who was it, that dyed his heart black?
Hey, who was it?
Hey, who was it?
Can you solve the equation on the abacus?
Can you loosen the rope around that kid’s neck?
Is it fine, if we remain like this?

Hey, what should I do?
Hey, what should I do?

Can you recite the area ratio formula?
Can you recite your dreams as a child?
Who threw those dreams down the drain,
Hey, who was it?
But I already know.
When will you grow up?
What the heck is ‘growing up’ in the first place?
Who should I be asking?
Hey, what should I do?
It doesn’t matter anymore…
