Lyrics and Music : Yoshii Kazuya
Arrangement : THE YELLOW MONKEY
作詞・作曲:吉井和哉
編曲:THE YELLOW MONKEY

NOTES
Kazuya uses a few interesting plays on words in this song such as comparing "ken" (sword) to "pen", "kami" (god) to "kami" (paper), and "fan" to "fuan". Also the line "kimi yori omae wo dakitai" (I want to hold you rather than you) requires some explanation. "omae" implies a more intimate relaitonship with whomever "you" is than "kimi" does. Meaning he wants to be closer to this person emotionally.

Let's walk along a trackless path, let's cling to a shapeless dream
I want a pen instead of a sword, I want to prove it on paper instead of with god

I want to drown in sin instead of in the sea, I want to hold you rather than you
Shoot me with an imaginery poisoned arrow from your rain bow

Putting on amphibious boots, while chewing richly colored gum
Let's search for brilliant pleasure, I'll be glad to share it with you
Fan? Fan? Fan? Scared? Scared? Scared?

Enemies are hiding all around, when you turn your back they'll trip you up
I lost quite a bit of the peace of Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday
Controlling a rainbow

Rainbow Man can control it, I can be Rainbow Man
I'll take the seven seas in my hand, Rainbow Man
I can be Rainbow Man, I can be Rainbow Man
Deciding on a conceited enlightenment
Rainbow Man, Rainbow Man, Rainbow Man

I'm lying down in the sun, a bird is calling me
Take deep breaths and relax, take deep breaths and relax
Together with you who has rabbit eyes, I want to take in some fresh air
Putting a straw through the hole in a 5 yen coin, I inhale as much as I can
Then all wishes will come true

Kill all the excess noise, remove all intrusive worldly thoughts
A rainbow, with my hands

Rainbow Man can control it, I can be Rainbow Man
Like waking up from a long sleep, Rainbow Man
I can be Rainbow Man, I can be Rainbow Man
Let's share the poison of imagination and freedom, Rainbow Man
I can be Rainbow Man, I can be Rainbow Man
Deciding on a conceited enlightenment
Rainbow Man, Rainbow Man, Rainbow Man
