白黒で終わるより
赤白で閉じたいのよ
孤独という名の風邪
青春とは病気だね

積み上げた心の壁が
目の高さなら清算を
カラフルに終わるより
シズルフルな瞬間(いま)を

「興味ない」と
繰り返しては
誰よりもきっと
つよがってる
僕は

Stairway Generation
階段を あがれあがれ
そして 聞こえますか?
繋がれますか?
あなたと one way

Lost In New Generation
僕はどこに?
僕はここにいる。
聞こえますか?
感じてますか?
僕の声を
あがるしかないようだ
Stairway

孤独という名の風邪
19で終わりじゃないのかい?
高い場所登ったら
寂しさは吹き飛ぶのかい?
積み上げた心の壁が
高すぎでよくわかんない
おいくらか払うから
認めてはくれないか

気にするなと
言われてもな
100があるなら100が欲しい
僕は

Stairway Generation
階段をあがれあがれ
そして 聞こえますか?
繋がれますか?
あなたと one way

Lost In New Generation
僕はどこに?
僕はここにいる。
聞こえますか?
感じてますか?
僕の声を
あがるしかないようだ

Stairway

Rather than to end it in black and white
I want to close it in red and white
This cold feeling called 'solitude'
Youth is an illness, isn't it?

Loaded with walls all around my heart
My eyes stay fixed above.
Colorfull is at it's end
And the moment begins to sizzle

Saying "I'm not interested"
Again and again
I act strong because I know there's someone even stronger out there.
I am

Stairway Generation
I climb and climb these stairs
Can you hear it?
Are you connected?
You and the one way

Lost In New Generation
Where am I?
I'm right here
Can you hear it?
Can you feel it?
My voice…
It seems I have to keep climbing this
Stairway

This cold feeling called 'solitude'
Doesn’t it end at 19?
If I climb to a even higher place
Will my loneliness be blown away?
The wall I built up around my heart
Is so high that I can't understand it
Don't you notice me
Just because it benefits you?

"Don't worry about it"
Hey, even if I say that
If there’s 100, Then it'll be 100
I am

Stairway Generation
I climb and climb the stairs
Can you hear it?
Are you connected?
You and the one way

Lost In New Generation
Where am I?
I'm right here
Can you hear it?
Can you feel it?
My voice…
It seems I have to keep climbing this
Stairway
