BackgroundEdit

"Old Radio" is an original KAITO song. It tells the story of a young boy (KAITO), who lives in a post-war town surrounded by humongous walls. It is forbidden for people to go outside the wall, therefore he was always told to remain inside, and grew up alone. Years passed and the boy grew into an adult, and received word that the "father he didn't remember had died" as a result of the war.

In his will, the boy was left a key that came with a mysterious message, which lead him to a "forbidden art". The art was in reference to music, which was forgotten by the walled city and he discovered it through a small, old radio. The radio was held in the arms of a humanoid doll that "wore the face of him as a child".

The doll follows only the commands of its master, so the boy ordered his doll to "go where that voice grows stronger", in reference to the radio held in its arms. The doll "nodded and effortlessly flew over the wall". Every passing day, the man stays and waits for the morning the doll will return, in hopes its voice will reconnect with the world.

This song entered the Hall of Fame.

LyricsEdit

Japanese (日本語歌詞) Romaji (ローマ字)
生まれる前の 大きな争い umareru mae no ookina arasoi
壁に囲まれた街 kabe ni kakomareta machi
外では人は 生きてはいけないと  soto de wa hito wa ikite wa ikenai to
大人に言われ続けて otona ni iware tsuzukete
ひとりで生きてきた hitori de ikite kita

いたことすら忘れていた父が 死んだと知らせがとどく ita koto sura wasurete ita chichi ga shinda to shirase ga todoku
「荷物を引き取れ」 簡潔な遺言 "nimotsu o hikitore" kanketsu na yuigon
添えられた部屋の鍵は 禁じられた技法に続いていた soerareta heya no kagi wa kinjirareta gihou ni tsuzuite ita

見たことのない仕掛けの 鉄の棒を伸ばす mita koto no nai shikake no tetsu no bou o nobasu
聞いたことの無い言葉で 歌われる音楽 kiita koto no nai kotoba de utawareru ongaku

部屋の奥で眠る人形 幼い僕の顔をしている heya no oku de nemuru ningyou osanai boku no kao o shite iru
繋がれた箱に光る文字 次の指令を待っていた tsunagareta hako ni hikaru moji tsugi no shirei o matte ita

開かれ縫われ 帰ってきた父  hirakare nuware kaette kita chichi
記憶に霞んでた顔 kioku ni kasundeta kao
訊ねたかった 僕の似姿に  tazune takatta boku no nisugata ni 
何を託したのかと nani o takushita no ka to
体に埋まっていた弾丸を握る karada ni umatte ita dangan o nigiru

宵闇にまぎれて人形を 壁の前へ連れて行った yoiyami ni magirete ningyou o kabe no mae e tsurete itta
歌う箱を腕に抱え 主人の言葉を待つ utau hako o ude ni kakae shujin no kotoba o motsu

命令はたった一つだ meirei wa tatta hitotsu da
その声が強くなるほうへ sono koe ga tsuyoku naru hou e

幼い僕は頷いて osanai boku wa unazuite
かるがると壁を乗り越えて 消えた karugaru to kabe o norikoete kieta

彼はいつか繋ぐだろう kare wa itsuka tsunagu darou
断ち切られた全てを tachi kirareta subete o
僕は今は ここで朝を待とう boku wa ima wa koko de asa o matou
四角い空の下で shikakui sora no shita de
