NOTES
Takui did several interesting things with writing a kanji for a word, but actually singing the word in English: "kataki" was sung as "enemy", "hayari" was sung as "trend", and "doutoku" was sung as "morale". All three are accurate. I decided that "sute koma" was best translated as "trojan horse", since "koma" can refer to a chess piece, and when the kanji is pronounced "uma" it also means "horse". In the line "toberu ka tobenai..." Takui used the word "niramekko" which is a game played by Japanese children in which two of them will stare at each other, and make funny faces. The first to laugh loses. So I thought that translating this as "stare down" was appropriate.
