Background[]

This song was originally uploaded onto Nico Nico Douga on May 2, 2011. It has since reached over 1,000,000 views, becoming one of wowaka's popular songs and making it into the Hall of Legend.

A likely interpretation for this song is about wowaka's dissatisfaction with the VOCALOID community, and is a brutal callout to the fandom that many have missed. wowaka explains that while his songs have seen great success, the success is under Hatsune Miku's name rather than his own, invalidating the hard work he put into his own music (an issue rampant in the VOCALOID community.)

Backing up this theory is that Unhappy Refrain is the last song wowaka composed on its eponymous album, and in general, before becoming inactive as a VOCALOID producer. Many lyrics refer to feeling tired and wanting to quit, but none pertain to suicide, making the farewell song theory even stronger.

Like many of wowaka's songs, it makes references to other songs by him (Example: I've given up on my 'One More Time' = "Rolling Girl").

Lyrics[]

Japanese (日本語歌詞) Romaji (ローマ字)
散弾銃とテレキャスター 言葉の整列、アンハッピー sandanjuu to terekyasutaa kotoba no seiretsu, anhappii
単身、都会の町並み 撃ち込んだ音、嫌いですか? tanshin tokai no machinami uchikonda oto, kirai desu ka?

声が潰れるまで歌って 何度の時間を棒に振った koe ga tsubureru made utatte nando no jikan o bou ni futta
やっとのこと手に入れたアンタ 手離す訳にいかないでしょ yatto no koto te ni ireta anta tebanasu wake ni ikanai desho

「ワンマンライブ大成功!」 頭の中は少女漫画 "wanman raibu daiseikou!" atama no naka wa shoujo manga
残弾、既に無くなった 此処で一度引き返そうか zandan sudeni nakunatta koko de ichido hikikaesou ka

そっと置いた丁度良い都合を 何度も拾い上げてたんだ sotto oita choudo ii tsugou o nandomo hiroiageteta nda
みっともない暮らしにもうバイバイ そろそろ迎えが来るのでしょ? mittomonai kurashi ni mou baibai sorosoro mukae ga kuru no desho?

間違い探しばかりふらふら machigaisagashi bakari furafura
振り返り方、教えて頂戴よ furikaerikata, oshiete choudai yo
足りないものはもう無い、もう無い tarinai mono wa mou nai mou nai
そうかい? そうかい、そうかい sou kai? sou kai, sou kai

言うならそれは、それはラッキー iu nara sore wa, sore wa rakkii
繰り返しの三十九秒 廻り廻っていたら 見えた、それはハッピー? kurikaeshi no sanjuukyuu-byou meguri megutte itara mieta, sore wa happii?
納得なんてするはずないわ! nattoku nante suru hazu nai wa!
どんだけ音を重ねたって 終わりも始まりもやっては来ないな don dake oto o kasanetatte owari mo hajimari mo yatte wa konai na
つまりつまり意味はないの tsumari tsumari imi wa nai no
どうやらアンタもわかっちゃいないな? douyara anta mo wakatcha inai na?

画面の向こう 落ちていった gamen no mukou ochite itta
逆さまのガール、おとなのせかい。 sakasama no gaaru, otona no sekai.

散弾銃とテレキャスター 言葉も無いよなアンラッキー sandanjuu to terekyasutaa kotoba mo nai yo na anrakkii
満身創痍 ゲームオーバー manshinsoui geemu oobaa
目に見えて嫌そうな感じですね? me ni miete iyasou na kanji desu ne?

散々躓いたソレは もう一回を諦めた sanzan tsumazuita sore wa mou ikkai o akirameta
転がりつつも勘違った そこでアンタが笑ってたんだ korogari tsutsu mo kanchigatta soko de anta ga waratteta nda

ワンマンライブ大成功 祭りの後のセンチメンタル wanman raibu daiseikou matsuri no ato no senchimentaru
満場一致解散だ 此処で一度裏返そうか manjouitchi kaisan da koko de ichido uragaesou ka

声が潰れるまで歌って 何度の時間を棒に振って koe ga tsubureru made utatte nando no jikan o bou ni futte
やっとのこと手に入れたアンタ ねえ、ご機嫌は如何ですか yatto no koto te ni ireta anta nee, gokigen wa ikaga desu ka

良くない夢の続きそわそわ yoku nai yume no tsuzuki sowasowa
間違え方を忘れたその末路 machigaekata o wasureta sono matsuro
なりたいものを頂戴、頂戴 naritai mono o choudai, choudai
「もう無い。」 "mou nai"
そうかい?そうかい? sou kai? sou kai?

どうしてそれが、それがハッピー doushite sore ga, sore ga happii
虚ろ目の午前四時 迷い迷って 辿り着いたそこがハッピー? utsuro me no gozen yoji mayoi mayotte tadoritsuita soko ga happii?
こんなに疲れているのになあ konna ni tsukarete iru noni naa
どうしてこれが、これがハッピー doushite kore ga, kore ga happii
終わりも見えない道に寝そべって owari mo mienai michi ni nesobette
ぐらりぐらり崩れちゃうわ gurari gurari kuzurechau wa
どうやらアンタの姿が邪魔で douyara anta no sugata ga jama de

言うならそれは、それはハッピー iu nara sore wa, sore wa happii
繰り返しの三十九秒 廻り廻っていたら 見えた、それはラッキー? kurikaeshi no sanjuukyuu-byou meguri megutte itara mieta, sore wa rakkii?
なんだか不思議と報われないなあ nandaka fushigi to mukuwarenai naa
ただ音を重ねたって 終わりも始まりもやっては来ないな tada oto o kasanetatte owari mo hajimari mo yatte wa konai na
つまりつまり意味は無いよ! tsumari tsumari imi wa nai yo!
そうだね今すぐ飛び降りよう sou da ne ima sugu tobioriyou

画面の向こう 落ちていった gamen no mukou ochite itta
逆さまのガール、おとなのせかい。 sakasama no gaaru, otona no sekai.

それは?
sore wa?
