Lyrics (Japanese):

(We’re on the Freedom Train)

すべて思いどおりになるのが自由
そんな誤解してるから 簡単にうろたえる

さぁまた出発の時間だ どうする?

引き返さない 急に止まれない
We’re on the Freedom Train 心決めたら
吹き飛んでゆく 涙も声も
You’re on the Freedom Train ただ一度きり

考え込んだって構わない 君の自由
行き先を選ぶこと それは君の責務(つとめ)

不満なら降りればいい スピードが鈍るからね(Oh, yeah)

引き返さない 急に止まれない
We’re on the Freedom Train 心決めたら
純な想いだけ 燃やしながら
You’re on the Freedom Train 終点だけめざす

あれもこれもって そんなのどっちつかず
We’re on the Freedom Train みんな逃げてくよ
恨んじゃいけない 妬んじゃいけない
You’re on the Freedom Train 潔く走れ

(みなさん! 何かにつけて自由自由って言いますけど)(Set me free!)
(別に自由はあなただけのものでも、楽なものでもありませんよ!)(Set me free!)
(自由への道は時として長く、寂しく、そして険しいのです!)

引き返さない 急に止まれない
We’re on the Freedom Train 心決めたら
吹き飛んでゆく 涙も声も
You’re on the Freedom Train ただ一度きり

幸せはどこにも落ちていない
We’re on the Freedom Train 自分の中にある
選んだレールの上にしかないもの
You’re on the Freedom Train(Uh!)それこそが自由

Lyrics (Romaji):

(We’re on the Freedom Train)

subete omoidoori ni naru no ga jiyuu
sonna gokai shiteru kara kantan ni urotaeru

saa mata shuppatsu no jikan da dou suru?

hikikaesanai kyuu ni tomarenai
We’re on the Freedom Train kokoro kimetara
fukitondeyuku namida mo koe mo
You’re on the Freedom Train tada ichido kiri

kangaekonda tte kamawanai kimi no jiyuu
iki saki wo erabu koto sore ha kimi no tsutome

fuman nara orireba ii supiido ga niburu kara ne (Oh yeah)

hikikaesanai kyuu ni tomarenai
We’re on the Freedom Train kokoro kimetara
jun na omoi dake moyashinagara
You’re on the Freedom Train shuuten dake mezasu

are mo kore mo tte sonna no docchi tsukazu
We’re on the Freedom Train minna nigeteku yo
uran ja ikenai netan ja ikenai
You’re on the Freedom Train isagiyoku hashire

(minasan! Nani ka ni tsukete jiyuu jiyuu tte iimasu kedo)(Set me free!)
(betsu ni jiyuu ha anata dake no mono demo, raku na mono demo arimasen yo!)(Set me free!)
(jiyuu he no machi ha toki toshite nagaku, sabishiku, soshite kewashii mono desu!)

hikikaesanai kyuu ni tomarenai
We’re on the Freedom Train kokoro kimetara
fukitondeyuku namida mo koe mo
You’re on the Freedom Train tada ichido kiri

shiawase ha doko ni mo ochiteinai
We’re on the Freedom Train jibun no naka ni aru
eranda reeru no ue ni shika nai mono
You’re on the Freedom Train (Uh!) sore koso ga jiyuu

Lyrics (English):

(We’re on the Freedom Train)

Freedom is everything, manifesting in just the way you imagined
You’re misunderstanding, making a habit of losing your temper with ease

It’s departure time again, what do you plan to do?

There’s no turning back, we can’t make a sudden stop
We’re on the Freedom Train, If you make up your mind
We’ll disappear with our voices and tears in hand
You’re on the Freedom Train just once

I don’t mind your contemplation, it’s your own freedom
It’s your call to choose whether to take those forward steps

If you’re unsatisfied, now’s the time to get off while the speed is on the decline  (Oh, yeah)

There’s no turning back, we can’t make a sudden stop
We’re on the Freedom Train, If you make up your mind
While only pure memories illuminate themselves
You’re on the Freedom Train, you’ll only wake up at end of the line

Not understanding this or that
We’re on the Freedom Train, Everybody’s on the run
You have to accuse, have to be jealous
You’re on the Freedom Train, Run bravely

(Everyone! You call it freedom if you’re talking about something associated with freedom, but–)(Set me free!)
(Even though freedom is in your possession, it doesn’t mean that it’ll always be pleasant!)(Set me free!)
(The path to freedom is long in terms of time, and painful, and it’s demanding!)

There’s no turning back, we can’t make a sudden stop
We’re on the Freedom Train, If you make up your mind
We’ll disappear with our voices and tears in hand
You’re on the Freedom Train just once

Happiness doesn’t come from anywhere
We’re on the Freedom Train, It’s inside of you
The things that lie ahead on the rail that only you’ve chosen
You’re on the Freedom Train (Uh!) That’s freedom
