赤い戦車 – Akai Sensha/Red Tank

Less like a watercolor and more like an oil painting when the paint has coagulated
unwavering is my resolve, unshakeable my blood-red ambition

Red bloody the will is
I will preserve my unstoppable will

I paint layer after layer over and over again with this same color
and now the painting has become a three-dimensional model, fully realized

Generations of hardship
are not more red than my hard will

Tossing my burning desire at the canvas in blood-red paint
my painting suddenly becomes a self-actualized cube
in a color that convinces me I was born so I could live

I paint layer after layer over and over again with this same color
and now the painting has become a three-dimensional model, fully realized

Generations of hardship
are not more red than my hard will

I’ve stared so long at my red-stained wounds they’re beginning to heal
Shiny red blood is the source of my painting
a color so convincing that I know I can’t be dead

Tossing my burning desire at the canvas in blood-red paint
my painting suddenly becomes a self-actualized cube
in a color that convinces me I was born so I could live
