Dou fe pravi judore suu

Dou fe pragos doura

Jushure iburu purella

Ajju an nuu jia douju

Every day, various things occur

But there’s no need to worry

After all, you’re dying.

Good things, bad things

Being glad or being worried

All of that will vanish eventually

And we can’t do a thing to change that.

It’s futile to fight against it

It’s meaningless to sigh about it

The destination is the same

It’s easy enough after a clear explanation, right?

Every day, various things occur

But there’s no need to worry

After all, you’ll be dying.

You can grieve over this tragedy

Or try to distract yourself

But we’re dying either way.

Being tormented by reality

Running for our dear lives

All of that will vanish in the end

That’s how it works, it’s just natural.

It’s useless to struggle

It’s meaningless to look for shelter

The destination is the very same

(But anyway, I heard love isn’t that bad in the end…)

You can grieve over this tragedy

Or try to distract yourself

You’ll be dying anyway.

That good guy is going to die too

That bad guy is going to die too

In the same way, the same way, everyone will die

The town will die in the same way

Your gods will die in the same way

Every single one will die!

Every single one will die

And you too, will die eventually (so give up, alright?).

Every day various things occur

But there’s no need to worry

After all, you’re dying.

Good things, bad things

Being glad or being worried

All of that will vanish eventually

It’s not like we can change a thing, right?

It’s futile to fight against it

It’s meaningless to sigh about it

The destination is the same

(But I’ve been told love isn’t quite that bad…)

Every day various things occur

But there’s no need to worry

After all, you’ll be dying.

Meaning of Lyrics Edit

Spoiler warning!
This article contains spoilers about part of Gravity Rush.
The song is highly unusual in that the lyrics express something very different to what Kat's philosophy and beliefs are, which are more accurately expressed in the song A Red Apple. While Kat has a "lawful good" alignment in her actions and desires to help everyone no matter how small and insignificant, the song's message is more "neutral" in that it doesn't matter if you help everyone, because everyone is dying anyway.

This has a deeper meaning when considering the events alluded to in the first game and which happen in the second, that the end of the world will happen very soon. And it further contradicts Kat's actions as Queen Alua when she desires to save the people below Eto, as in the beliefs of the song's writer, such actions would be pointless and not accomplish anything.

Ultimately its appearance in Discovery of Gravitation suggests that the two songs are in opposition to each other, with the beliefs expressed in this song being similar to those initially expressed by Cyanea and possessed by The Darkness, in that time was created to be cyclical and there is no use resisting it. However, the Creators ultimately change their minds about this and sacrifice themselves to help Kat do the exact opposite and resist the world's ultimate fate.

A 2012 interview with series director Keiichiro Toyama might help further elucidate the song's meaning. Toyama wrote the lyrics in the aftermath of the 2011 Tōhuko earthquake, which caused widespread devastation and caused Toyama to feel, in his words, "reacquainted with death." At the same time, he was feeling frustrated with the development of Gravity Rush, disliking the direction the game was going and unsure of how to continue. However, he realized that one day everyone will die, and thus he should worry less and attempt to live more in the moment. In this light the lyrics take on a more positive connotation, reflecting a more carefree (albeit decidedly existential) attitude. [1]
