MV SypnosisEdit

The MV starts out with footage of a destroyed city, starting with overhead shots, and then streetview, slowly creeping up towards a destroyed monument. Everything is eerily quiet.

The screen cuts over to Yuuna, who is walking through the ruins. As she walks around, she looks at the destruction with solemn eyes.
   Honoka, Kaoru and Mii-chan are then shown. Honoka sits atop a large piece of rubble, which a standing Kaoru is also leaning against. She has crossed her arms. Sitting on the ground is Mii-chan, leaning against the rubble as well.
   Then Karin, Techi, Haruki and Sasshi are shown at a ruined playground. Karin, closest to the camera, sits on a swing, unmoving. Techi is leaning on the fence, resting her forearms atop it, and Haruki stands with one hand on a climbing frame, a small bit further away from the camera than Techi. Sasshi, furthest away from the camera, is sitting down with her back against the remains of a seesaw.
   Acchan, Takamina, Hikari and Mirai are shown next. They are in a classroom. Acchan sits in the first row, at the desk to the right of the hole in the middle. Takamina stands in the second row, her back against the wall, eyes closed. Hikari is crouched to the very right of the third row, holding a dirty pencil case with a sad expression, and Mirai is in the middle seat at the fourth row, chin in her hand and gazing out the broken windows.
   Finally, Miyagi, Aoi, Sayaka and Paruru are shown in a ruined shopping mall. Looking up to the broken ceiling where light is filtering through is Miyagi. Aoi focuses on the broken shop signs, her chin a bit tilted up as well. Sayaka stands by one of the display windows, looking at a big crack at eyelevel in the glass, and Paruru looks down at the remnants of a long since dead decorative plant.

The music starts as Yuuna reaches what used to be the main square, and she stares out over it for a moment.
   She walks over to an area that seems a little bit less destroyed, and picks up a burnt book lying there. Part of it falls to the ground, too damaged to stay together. She gazes at it for a moment, before looking straight at the camera, and she sings her first line to the music.
   The screen then cuts back to Honoka, Kaoru and Mii-chan, and they sing their line. Yuuna is seen on the main square in the distance, and she is singing along as well.
   The screen cuts over to Karin, Techi, Haruki and Sasshi, and they sing their first line where they are.

As the refrain starts, Miyagi, Aoi, Sayaka and Paruru start moving by looking at eachother, and then nodding. Karin, Techi, Haruki and Sasshi get up from their places at the playground. Acchan, Takamina, Hikari and Mirai get up from their places in the classroom, and start to head towards the door. Honoka jumps down from her seat atop the rubble, Kaoru stops leaning against it, and Mii-chan gets up as well. The three start walking as well. Finally, back at the main square, as the final line of the refrain is sung, Yuuna throws away the wasted book.

Acchan, Takamina, Hikari and Mirai are the first shown in their uniforms for the song, standing beside each other and following the dance routine as they sing their line.
   The screen cuts to Miyagi, Aoi, Sayaka and Paruru, also in their uniforms for the song, doing the same as they sing their line.

As the second verse starts, Honoka, Kaoru and Mii-chan have reached Yuuna, and they sing their lines as the three walk up to stand beside Yuuna on the ruined main square.
   As they sing their line, Karin, Techi, Haruki and Sasshi start walking out of the playground.
   Acchan, Takamina, Hikari and Mirai are shown walking in the corridors of the school as they sing their line.

When the second refrain comes, Yuuna, Honoka, Kaoru and Mii-chan are in the main square, following the dance routine. Karin, Techi, Haruki and Sasshi wordlessly start running. Acchan, Takamina, Hikari and Mirai leave the school building, stepping out into the sunshine outside, and start running as well. Miyagi, Aoi, Sayaka and Paruru head up some stairs, finding their way outside of the shopping mall as well.

Miyagi, Aoi, Sayaka and Paruru are once again shown in in their uniforms, following the dance routine as they sing.
   Yuuna, Honoka, Kaoru and Mii-chan are shown in their uniforms as well, doing the same as they sing their line.

Karin, Techi, Haruki and Sasshi are shown in their uniforms, repeating the previous shots as they also follow the dance routine side by side as they sing.
   Acchan, Takamina, Hikari and Mirai are again shown in their uniforms, following the dance routine as well.

During the short instrumental break, the screen cuts back to Yuuna, Honoka, Kaoru and Mii-chan at the main square. They seem worried, gazing at eachother and the structures around them, and talking, although the sound is muted. Their discussion gets more heated as the instrumental continues, coming to a point when Yuuna screams something at the other three.

Before the situation can get worse, the instrumental ends, Acchan, Takamina, Hikari and Mirai arrive, singing their lines as they walk over to the feuding girls, place a hand on their shoulders to calm them down, and then walk over to their positions in the dance formation.
   Miyagi, Aoi, Sayaka and Paruru follow suit, singing their lines as they walk up to the four girls, bright smiles on their faces and then taking their positions in the dance formation.
   Finally, Karin, Techi, Haruki and Sasshi also arrive, singing their lines as they walk over to the four girls, displaying encouragement in their own ways, and then take their positions in the dance formation.
   Yuuna, Honoka, Kaoru and Mii-chan, encouraged by the others, take a deep breath, and sing their lines as they move into the position as well. As they sing their last note, a bright light coming from the 16 girls cover the screen briefly, before fading away, leaving the entire senbatsu in their uniforms for the song instead of the tattered clothing they wore before.

They perform the rest of the song in the ruined main square and the MV ends with a closeup of Yuuna at the end of the performance that then fades to black.

LyricsEdit

Kimi wo kinishinai kamoshirenai kedo
kore ga bokura ga sumu sekai nara
Buki wa subete no mondai no
kaiketsusaku ni
Imi wa nani dayo?

Dakara boku wa kono you ni mienai
sekai ni toutasu shitai
Kono kaetai mirai wo
ukeireru ga dekinai

Ima no genjitsu kara
umareta sekai?
Boku ga shoujiki deareba,
hitsuyou to suru bashou ni toutatsu suru ni
ooku no sagyou ga aru yo

Shin no boku wa tachigatte nanika wo shite koto
boku ni sakende iru
Kataku tatte to
nagare ni sakaratte oyoge koto
Demo sore wa nikushimi no hiraishin dake janai yo?

Bokura wa minna shibarareta no ima ni
subete wa netsuite iru
Kono kaetai mirai kara
me wo hanasu ga dekinai

Naze, bokura ga sunde iru sekai wo
ukeirenakya?
Ima no dono you ni,
kenchouna kanjou wa
hisansa to SUTORESU janai ka?

Sono sonzai wa tashika yo
atta koto wo henkou dekinai
Demo futabi okoranai wo
kakinin suru ga dekiru
Erabu hito wa bokura janai ka?

Dakara boku wa kono you ni mienai
sekai ni toutasu shitai
Kono kaetai mirai wo
ukeireru ga dekinai

Saishuuteki ni bokura no sekinin,
yotei sarete inai
unmei wo nozomu nara
Doushiyou ka
oshiete kurenai yo
Tada kaetai mirai wa
teikou suru darou wo
shitteiru
Tsuyosa ya jizokusei no
mondai janai
ishi no dayo

Dakara boku wa kono you ni mienai
sekai ni toutasu shitai
Kono kaetai mirai wo
ukeireru ga dekinai

It may not bother you
but if this is the world we live in
Where weapons are the solution
to everything
What's the meaning of it all?

So I want to reach a future
that doesn't look like this
I can't bring myself to accept
this future that I want to change

A future born from the
now that is today?
If I'm completely honest,
it'll take a lot of work
to get where we need to be

The true me is yelling at me
to get up and do something
To take a stand and swim
against the current
Isn't that just a lightning rod for hate though?

It's all grounded in the now
that we are all bound to
I can't look away
this reality I want to change

Why do we have to accept
the world we live in?
The way it is now,
aren't misery and stress
the prominent emotions?

It's existence is certain
we can't change what's already been
But we can make sure
it doesn't happen again
Shouldn't it be up to us to choose?

So I want to reach a future
that doesn't look like this
I can't bring myself to accept
this future that I want to change

In the end it's up to us,
if we want a fate
not predestined
I can't tell you
what to do
I just know this
future I want to change
will resist
It's not a question of
strength or persistence
but will

So I want to reach a future
that doesn't look like this
I can't bring myself to accept
this future that I want to change

君を気にしないかもしれないけど
これが僕らが住む世界なら
武器は全ての問題の
解決策に
意味は何だよ?

だから僕は このように見えない
世界に到達したい
この変えたい未来を
受け入れるができない

今の現実から
生まれた世界?
僕が正直であれば、
必要とする場所に到達するに
多くの作業があるよ

真の僕は立ち上がって何かをしてこと
僕に叫んでいる
堅く立ってと
流れに逆らって泳げこと
でもそれは憎しみの避雷針だけじゃないよ?

僕らはみんな縛られたの今に
全ては根付いている
この変えたい未来から
目を離すができない

なぜ僕らが住んでいる世界を
受け入れなきゃ?
今のどのように、
顕著な感情は
悲惨さとストレスじゃないか?

その存在は確かよ
あった事を変更できない
でも再び起こらないを
確認するができる
選ぶ人は僕らじゃないか?

だから僕は このように見えない
世界に到達したい
この変えたい未来を
受け入れるができない

最終的に 僕らの責任、
予定されていない
運命を望むなら
どうしようか
教えてくれないよ
ただ変えたい未来は
抵抗するだろうを
知っている
強さや持続性の
問題じゃない
意思のだよ

だから僕は このように見えない
世界に到達したい
この変えたい未来を
受け入れるができない
