LyricsEdit

That can't be Reality
I won't believe this.
That can't be Reality
Why is the world bad?
Reality should be more nice
We all should smile
But we do not.

What is Reality?
Do you understand?
Some one rules
Over us
To be honest
Is the destiny real
In all those games,
It looks more real
Couldn't it be,
We are all game
Shouldn't a world be beautiful?

I believe
Reality will never be like this
At least, it won't be
Dark and Alone

Happiness, Despair, Love,
All those feelings, Exist in the Reality
But how do we know
That those things are real?
All teachers tell us
This and this is right
This and this is wrong
Are you shure, that the world isn't an illusion
Everything has formulas
Everything seems real
But I don't believe

That can't be Reality
There aren't any colors
That can't be Reality
There is nothing to live for
Everything is grey
Why can we have
A small piece of happiness?

To be honest
Why should I believe you?
Why do you even say?
This would be Reality?
I can't believe you
There has to be another world
A place where you dream
Something which can be Reality

You never will get me to believe
That there is no other world
Which shines more
Which is more beautiful

Couldn't it be (A system)
Here all (Not Reality)
This all is a Game
Emotions aren't real
Don't you believe me?
Couldn't it be true?
Shouldn't a real world be beautiful?

What is Reality?
What can I do to know?
That there is no other world?
That there won't be a place,
where dreams are real?

That can't be Reality
Reality is lovely
That can't be Reality
It's radiant, dreamy
We are allowed to live
Our dreams
The world can be a rainbow

Still I keep dreaming
Of another world
Without War
Without Fights
Full of dreams
A new world for me

That can't be Reality
I believe in the future
That can't be Reality
Let's continue searching
There has to be a hidden link
Out of this
Black-White world
Continue

What do you think?
Can't we have a better Reality?

それはRealityにはできません
これを信じられないでしょう。
それはRealityにはできません
なぜ世界は悪いのですか?
Realityはもっと素敵にする必要があり
私たちはみんな、笑顔べき
しかし、我々にはありません。

Realityが何ですか?
わかりますか
いくつかのいずれかは
わたしたちの規則
正直
運命実ですか?
全てにおいてGame
それは本当であり
ありえません
私たちはGameです
世界は美しくですか?

信じています
Realityにはこのようなことはありません
少なくとも、それができなくなります
暗いと一人者

幸福、絶望、愛、
すべてのそれらの感情は、Realityには存在し
しかし、どのように私たちが知っていますか
それらのものは本物であることを?
すべての教師は私たちを教えて
これとこれは正しいです
これと、これは間違っています
あなたは世界が錯覚ではないと、確信しています
すべてが式を持っています
すべては本物のようです
しかし、私は信じていません

それはRealityにはできません
任意の色はありません
それはRealityにはできません
以下のために生きるためには何もありません
すべてはグレー
なぜ我々は持つことができます
幸福の小片?

正直に言うと
なぜ私はあなたが信じている必要がありますか?
なぜあなたも言うのですか?
これが現実でしょうか?
あなたが信じられません
別の世界が存在しなければなりません
あなたは夢の場所
Realityとなる可能性が

あなたは私を信じて取得しませんでし
他の世界が存在しないこと
これはもっと輝きます
どちらがより美しいです

それは、ここで、すべての (システム)
(ありませんReality)することができませんで
した
これはすべてのGameであります
感情は本物ではありません
私を信じていませんの?
それは本当ではないだろうか?
Real Worldは美しくすべきではありませんか?

Realityは何ですか?
私が知っているために行うことができます?
他の世界が存在しないということ?
場所がないこと、どこに夢がRealityのもの?

それはRealityにはできません
Reality は素敵
それはRealityにはできません
夢のような、きらきら
私たちは、生きることを許されています
私たちの夢
世界が虹することができます

それでも私は夢を見続けます
別の世界の
戦争のありません
戦いのありません
夢のあります
私のための新しい世界

それはRealityにはできません
未来を信じててる
それはRealityにはできません
隠されたリンクが存在しなければなりません
このうち
ブラックホワイトの世界

PVEdit

The PV of Reality isn't focused on a story. It's focus is on visual appear. The first image is the image of the blue sky. Despite the fact that the sky is filled with clouds, there are enough rifts to see the blue of the sky. The clouds move quickly over the sky and after a few seconds, the sun is setting. The sky clears and the starry sky is shown. A few darker clouds appear on the sky and it seems to start raining. Those clouds disappear with the sunrise. While this first scene, the sound of wind (and while the rain part also rain sounds) is the only thing that'd heard. The title of the song is written in the bottom left corner.

In a tree, a few birds are chirping. The camera moves to a school. The school just ended and the students are leaving the school. The sounds of the chatting students goes silent and the song starts playing.

The members are standing on a wide field below the blue sky. There is nothing but the green field and the blue sky. The camera shows the members from behind but soon moves quickly around them as they start dancing. The camera zooms towards the centre of the formation.

As soon as the sung lines start, the scene changes. Like all other members, Atsuko is wearing a long white dress without a pattern. She lays on a light blue blanket. She has her eyes closed. The blanket lays on grass. It is rather dark. The camera zooms out, showing that Atsuko lays on a small island in a pound. While zooming out, the camera circles. The water of the pound reflects the starry sky over her. The camera suddenly zooms onto her face as she opens her eyes.

After Atsuko, Akari is shown. Unlike her, she is standing. Akari is close to the sea. It's also night. However, Akari is far better visible as she is standing on a small island which is surrounded by glowing lava. The lava is flowing out of several stones. Akari is first shown from the back but soon turns around herself.

Nami is standing on a stone in a small lake. Behind her is a huge stone wall which is covered by moss and a waterfall. Around the small lake are also many wild growing trees and fog covers the whole scene. Several fireflies fly towards Nami as the camera circles around her.

Sayaka is sitting on a brown stone. Behind her are several other large rocks, a few dark green trees and the sky which turns red and orange. The sun is rising and Sayaka is watching it. The camera moves away from her, showing the sunrise and that she is sitting very high in the air - below her are a few cloud-like wafts of fog.

At "Reality ga", the four center members are all shown in their scenes. The screen is split into four parts. After this, the members are shown dancing until the line "Sore wa hontou deari".

The next scene is shown on a flower field. Rena is sitting on a swing under a blooming cherry blossom tree. She is watching several pigeons which are flying at the sky. She is making a necklace of flowers while doing so.

After Rena, Takamina is sitting at the beach, looking at the sea. She has built a small sandcastle and now draws hearts and similar things into the sand with a stick. She seems to be the only one at the beach.

Miyagi is standing alone in a snowy landscape between a few leafless trees. Miyagi is glaring towards the camera with an emotionless expression. Suddenly, a squall full of snow is blowing through her hair.

At "Koufuku, Zetsubou, Ai", the scene returns to the dancing members. The sun is rising behind them, overflowing their performance with bright, orange light. From above, small silver glitters are falling down at them. This scene ends at the line "Kore to kore wa tadashii desu".

Honoka is standing in a white room. The walls around her are already coloured with yellow and purple colour splashes. Her dress is also already coloured. Honoka holds two paintball guns in her hands. She's shooting towards the camera.

Following Honoka, Yui is standing in the centre of a middle ages-like town. She is surrounded by several other people. As the camera circles around her and zooms out, showing the city which is a castle from above, she is looking towards the sky.

Chiyo is standing in a dark room which is only illuminated by several small lights which are similar to light sticks. Suddenly, blue electrical flashes are illuminating the room which turns out to be a disco-like room.

Melody is sitting in a huge, palace-like room. The windows are open and the red curtains are waving slightly in the wind. She is sitting in front of a black piano and her hand slides over the instrument. She starts playing. The camera first only shows her hand but moves up to her face.

At "Sore wa Reality ni wa dekimasen", the members are sitting together on the grass field. The silver rain is still continuing and Honoka starts throwing those glitters at the other members. At "Shoujiki ni iu to", the members rise and continue dancing.

At "Sore wa, koko de, subete no", Mariko is sitting in the front of the 0048 stage. The stage is illuminated but no performance is happening. She is glaring into the not-existing audience.

After her, Mirai and Alisa are sitting together in a huge rose garden, drinking tea. Everything is covered with rose petals. Mirai is petting a white cat while Alisa is eating a cookie. The camera moves over the roses before returning to them.

Monica and Tomoka are standing between several fabrics, sketches and other things which are needed to design fashion. The two girls are looking over the sketches and at the fabrics.

Now, all members are shown in the main uniform of the song. They're standing in a white room which is covered by several coloured glitters and other fabrics in the colours of the members' uniforms. Each member once is shown in the room whichs colours fit, posing around. Behind the members, their Sousenkyo Posters are shown.
They're performing the last refrain together in this room (now rainbow-coloured). The final shot shows the girls standing/sitting together.
