English

I wear black glasses
Just a frame of me you see
Fancy window dressing
In the mirror glass, I reflect a bigger me

I use them as a curtain
With two holes to see the world
When I’m not too certain
If the real me inside is the one who needs to hide

In my glasses I’m the Wizard of Oz
You can hear my voice; I hear your applause
Would you see a clown if the curtain came down
It could all turn around
If I take them off
Would you call it off?
If I take them off
Take them off for you

When I wear black glasses
Am I hiding me from view?
Where’s my Lion’s Courage
And the Tin Man’s heart to feel I’ll be enough for you

In my glasses I’m the Wizard of Oz
You can hear my voice; I hear your applause
Would you see a clown if the curtain came down
Would you stick around
And see me through?
See me as you?
If I take them off
Take them off for you

So I wear black glasses
Am I hiding me from view?

In my glasses I’m the Wizard of Oz
You can hear my voice; I hear your applause
Would you see a clown if the curtain came down
Would you stick around?
If I take them off
Is the whole thing off?

In my glasses I’m the Wizard of Oz
You can hear my voice; I hear your applause
Would you see a clown if the curtain came down
Would you stick around
And see me through?
See me as you?
If I take them off
Take them off
Take them off
For you

Japanese translation

ボクは黒録メガネをかけている
でも見えているのはただの一部だけさ
ショップのウィンドーには
一回り大きなボクが映っている

メガネをカーテンとして使っているんだ
世界を二つの穴からのぞいている
それは本当の自分が
隠れようとしているから

メガネをかけるとボクはオズの魔法使い
ボクの声が聞こえるだろう 君たちの拍手は聞こえてるよ
でも幕が下がりたらボクはピエロに見えるのか
全ては変ってしまうのか
このメガネを外したら 
全ては終わりなのか
君のために
このメガネを外したら

黒録メガネをかける時
みんなの視界から隠れているのか
ライオンの勇気はどこへいった
君にとって十分だと思えるブリキの木こりのハートはどこにある

メガネをかけるとボクはオズの魔法使い
ボクの声が聞こえるだろう 君たちの拍手は聞こえてるよ
でも幕が下がりたらボクはピエロに見えるのか
ずっとボクのそばで
見届けてくれるかい
ボクを君と同じように見てくれるかい
君のために
このメガネを外したら

そんなわけで黒録メガネをかけている
みんなの視界から隠れているのか

メガネをかけるとボクはオズの魔法使い
ボクの声が聞こえるだろう?君たちの拍手は聞こえてるよ
でも幕が下がりたらボクはピエロに見えるのか
ずっとボクのそばで見届けてくれるかい
このメガネを外したら 
全ては終わりなのか

メガネをかけるとボクはオズの魔法使い
ボクの声が聞こえるだろう?君たちの拍手は聞こえてるよ
でも幕が下がりたらボクはピエロに見えるのか
ずっとボクのそばで
見届けてくれるかい
ボクを君と同じように見てくれるかい
このメガネを外したら
君のために
このメガネを
外したら
