BackgroundEdit

The song was first uploaded on August 14, 2011, and is Neru's seventh work uploaded. The video reached 1,000,000 at 11:07 AM on June 20, 2012 and has since been covered by various utaites. This was also featured in an EXIT TUNES compilation Vocalocluster, V Love 25~Aperios~, and VOCALOID 超BEST -impacts-.

To celebrate Kagamine Append's first anniversary, Tokyo Teddy Bear's single was released by KARENT.

The song is rather vague, and so several interpretations can be made. A possible meaning for the song is that the main protagonist, played by Rin, runs away from home and her family, thinking that she has a 'crazy filled mind'. She appears to hate her life and wants to change. In the song, she struggles with why she needs to change, seen in the lyrics; "Make a fool of yourself." Either these are her parents words to her, or these are Rin's own thoughts. She appears to fear that changing can only make her a mere fool.

In other lyrics, Rin asks why she can't just be loved—possibly by her family—and expresses wishes to cut her face off with scissors. This appears to indicate she has a history of, or is contemplating, harming herself, whether by literally cutting herself or by inflicting mental pain.

The teddy bear could also represent the singer. The stuffed toy is nearly torn apart and is a mess of stitches and patches, much like Rin imagines herself to be on the inside. The teddy bear's physical state symbolizes Rin's internal suffering. Seeing herself, like the bear, as being destined to be constantly torn apart and patched up again, Rin expresses a desire to be "patched" up and be fixed. At some parts, she hints of pulling the last string that keeps the teddy bear together, possibly symbolizing her death. The ending of the song—whether Rin returns home, finds help, runs away, commits suicide, etc.—is left to the viewer's imagination.

LyricsEdit

Japanese (日本語歌詞) Romaji (ローマ字)
父さん母さん 今までごめん tousan kaasan ima made gomen
膝を震わせ 親指しゃぶる hiza wo furuwase oyayubi shaburu
兄さん姉さん それじゃあまたね niisan neesan sore jaa mata ne
冴えない靴の 踵潰した saenai kutsu no kakato tsubushita

見え張ったサイズで 型紙を取る mie hatta saizu de katagami wo toru
何だっていいのさ 代わりになれば nandatte ii no sa kawari ni nareba

愛されたいと 口を零した aisaretai to kuchi wo koboshita
もっと丈夫な ハサミで motto joubuna hasami de
顔を切り取るのさ kao wo kiritoru no sa

全智全能の言葉を ほら聞かせてよ zenchi zen'nou no kotoba wo hora kikasete yo
脳みそ以外 もういらないと noumiso igai mou iranai to
why not, I don't know
近未来創造 明日の傷創 ただ揺らしてよ kin mirai souzou asu no shousou tada yurashite yo
縫い目の隙間を埋めておくれ nuime no sukima wo umete okure

皆さんさようなら 先生お元気で minasan sayounara sensei ogenki de
高なった胸に 涎が垂れる takanatta mune ni yodare ga tareru

正直者は何を見る? 正直者は馬鹿を見る! shoujikimon wa nani wo miru? shoujikimon wa baka wo miru!
正直者は何を見る? 正直者は馬鹿を見る! shoujikimon wa nani wo miru? shoujikimon wa baka wo miru!

あー、これじゃまだ足りないよ aa, kore ja mada tarinai yo

全智全能の言葉を ほら聞かせてよ zenchi zen'nou no kotoba wo hora kikasete yo
脳みそ以外 もういらないと noumiso igai mou iranai to
why not, I don't know
近未来創造 明日の傷創 ただ揺らしてよ kin mirai souzou asu no shousou tada yurashite yo
縫い目の隙間を埋めておくれ nuime no sukima wo umete okure

もう何も無いよ 何も無いよ 引き剥がされて mou nanimo nai yo nanimo nai yo hiki hagasarete
糸屑の 海へと この細胞も ito kuzu no umi e to kono saibou mo
そうボクいないよ ボクいないよ 投げ捨てられて sou boku inai yo boku inai yo nagesuterarete
帰る場所すら何処にも 無いんだよ Kaeru basho sura doko ni mo nainda yo

存在証明。 あー、shut up ウソだらけの体 sonzai shoumei. aa, shut up uso-darake no karada
完成したいよ ズルしたいよ 今、解答を kansei shitai yo zuru shitai yo ima, kaitou wo

煮え立ったデイズで 命火を裁つ nietatta deizu de inochi bi o tatsu
誰だっていいのさ 代わりになれば dare datte ii no sa kawari ni nareba

Written by an unknown artist, this version of the lyrics were used in the English version of Hatsune Miku -Project DIVA- F 2nd.

Mom, Dad, I'm sorry for everything
My knees are shaking and I'm sucking my thumb
Brother, Sister, I'll see you later
I stomp down the heels of my unfashionable shoes

I'll make a ridiculously-sized pattern for it
Anything will do, as long as it serves as a replacement

The words "I want to be loved" tumbled from my mouth
I'll find some tougher scissors
To cut out the face

C'mon, let me hear some words of wisdom
Tell me I don't need anything but my brain;

Why not? I don't know

Near-future creation; tomorrow's wounds; just shake it
Please fill in the gaps in my seams

Goodbye, everyone; teacher, take care
Drool drips onto my pounding chest

What does honesty get you? Honesty doesn't pay!
What does honesty get you? Honesty doesn't pay!

Ahh, this isn't going to get the job done
I need a bigger sewing machine to pierce through the heart

C'mon, let me hear some words of wisdom
Tell me I don't need anything but my brain;

Why not? I don't know

Near-future creation; tomorrow's wounds; just shake it
Please fill in the gaps in my seams

There's nothing left, nothing left anymore: It's all torn off
Even my cells disappear into this sea of lint
That's right, I'm gone, gone, thrown away
I don't even have a home to go back to

Proof of my existence. Ahh, shut up. My body's made of lies
I want to complete it, I want to cheat, give me the answer
I can't change? Do I want to be kept like a pet?
Is it all gone? This isn't me!
The seams have split and torn apart

I cut out my life's spark in these boiling days
Anyone will do, as long as they serve as a replacement
