My Headphone by Yuu Ikeda

From my headphone, only discord is resounding

I cannot take it off because listening to the rusty sound

is my duty, my punishment

From my headphone,

your sugary voice

doesn't resound

But I cannot take it off

because I expect that someday the voice comes back

Listening to discord, I'm waiting for your voice

to dominate my headphone
