about

ある夏の日、商店街を歩いているとき、突然、カラスに頭を突かれた。痛かった。血もでた。「こんな、立て込んだ東京のど真ん中に、巣なんか作るなよ。」と、思った。でも、野生との希有な攻防戦がどこか嬉しかった。

lyrics

Citizen Crow

they say the metropolitan crow
has deep black feathers
like a Japanese woman's glossy hair

she gathers any shining object to decorate her nest
a skillful craftswoman she is

she flies a valley of buildings
and swiftly crosses a grey forest

in ancient times, American Indians saw her as the god of wisdom

she infiltrates into the habitat marked 'for mankind only'
she is loud and clever and disliked
I hope she survives


カラス

黒く輝く 濡れ羽色の羽根を持つ
ああ都会のカラス

不思議なものを盗んでは巣を飾る 
巧みな技師よカラス

ビルの谷間、露地、灰色の街を駆け抜け
昔、インディアンが知恵の神を見た鳥

人だけの地に迷い込む。かしましい
嫌われ者のカラス。生き残れカラス
