lyrics

雄鶏の顔をした古代の英雄
英雄である重圧に我を忘れて
あたり構わずミサイルを撃ちまくった

競技場に人を集めて牛を引かせ
電気を作っては売り
作っては売り

それなのにそいつらを身勝手な群衆と呼び
春と夏と秋とを奪った

僕はといえば喘息の薬を飲みながら
それを記事にする古臭い新聞記者
横になれば発作が酷くなるから
眠ることなくタイプを打つ

朝刊までにこれを間に合わせないといけない
陽気な独裁者が誰の中にもいるってこと
ピーナツバターを瓶ごと全部使ってしまう
陽気な独裁者が君の中にもいるってこと

An ancient hero with the face of a cockerel
Loses himself in the pressure of heroism
And keeps firing off missiles without a care for the target

Gathers people at the racecourse
And forces them to pull the cattle
Making and selling electricity
Making it and selling it

But still he calls them a selfish mob
He stole the spring and the summer and the autumn

I guess you would call me an old fashioned newspaperman
Making it into an article while taking my asthma medicine
The convulsions get worse if I lie down
So I keep on typing without sleep

I need to get it done in time for the morning edition
There is a cheerful dictator inside of everyone
Using up an entire jar of peanut butter
There is a cheerful dictator inside of you
