(...uoY roF gnitiaW llitS m'I
...nakij on anuS) [1]

Dakara amai yume mirun janai
Dekinai dakara
Ichi to juu dake o mitsumete wa
Niyaketeiru dake
Kantan na houteishiki sae tokenain janai
NYUANSU (Nuance) dake wakatta tsumori
Karawarai sasete

Keikakusei mo naku hita hashiri
Ikigireshiteiru
Ishibashi o tataite kowashite
Jitabata odotte
Amari ni mo kokkei na sugata mite wa irarenai
Mesaki no koto bakari
Katazuke tsubo mo wakarazu ni

Baka na furi itsumade shite
Sono VEERU (Veil) hayaku nugina yo
Hontou no anata misete
Yarikirenai ima no mama ja

Dareka ga kimeta RUURU (Rule) nante
Fumitsuke aruite
"Akashi" taru mo no subete saigo
Kotae wa mitsukaru
Riyuu ga wakatteiru naraba kangaeru koto wa nai
Iiwake wa mou kiki aki takara
Jitsuzou o misete yo

Tachi habamu genjitsu sae
Tsukiyabure anata rashiku
Oji kezuku hitsuyou naku
Nemuri yuku chikara okose

Baka na furi itsumade shite
Sono VEERU (Veil) hayaku nugina yo
Hontou no anata misete
Yarikirenai ima no mama ja


(...uoy rof gnitiaw llits m'I
...emit fo sdnaS) [1]

That's why you dream these half-baked dreams -
Because you can't do it for real.
You just look at 1 and 10
And smirk.
You can't even solve a simple equation.
You fake a laugh,
Thinking you've gotten the nuance.

Without any plans, you keep running,
Out of breath.
You burn your bridges
And dance around in a panic.
I can't watch such an embarrassing display.
You only deal with what's before you,
Missing the point entirely.

How long will you play dumb?
Take off that veil already!
Show me your true self;
You can't keep this up forever!

You trample over
Other peoples' rules --
Proof will always
Give you the answer.
If you know the reason, there's nothing to think about.
I'm sick of hearing your excuses;
Show me the real you!

Break through the realities
That hold you back --
There's no need to be afraid;
Awaken the power that sleeps within you.

How long will you play dumb?
Take off that veil already!
Show me your true self;
You can't keep this up forever!
Oasis Heart3's Notes:
[!!] Literally, "kouzou kaikaku" means "structrual reform" (but I made the title prettier and called it "New Formation"). However...according to Kiwi Musume, "Kouzou Kaikaku is designed to sound like a big word. I'd call it 'Reconstruction'."

[1] In the intro, Van is singing "CARNAVAL" (another Do As Infinity song) backwards. So I decided to add the lyrics to this part (and its translation)...backwards. (xD) And yes, that last line DOES look obscene, since it says "anus". (xD) But anyway!

     If you want to read the verse the correct/"forward" way, it says:

Suna no jikan...
I'm Still Waiting For You...

     Sands of time...
     I'm still waiting for you...


     ...You can sample "Kouzou Kaikaku", "CARNAVAL" (and its doppelganger song, "Desire") on the Song Meanings page.
