"How To World Domination" is an original song by Neru. It was uploaded to YouTube on December 19, 2017. The girl in the video is named Azuma, and the boy in the video is named Tsuji.

This song entered the Hall of Fame on March 10, 2013 (after 1 day, 4 hours and 14 minutes), and the Hall of Legend on February 10, 2014.

There are many interpretations for this song.

Interpretation 1:

Both of them were bullied in school, so they hate school. They wanted to fight back against the bullies, but they quickly realized that violence solves nothing. They don't want to throw their days away, as they still think it is too early to do so. The boy knows that if he doesn't study well, he will not get a job that he likes.

Both of them doubt whether they can change for the better.

Soon, the girl realizes that she will be lonely forever. That's why loneliness doesn't change into loneliness. She feels depressed every day, while the boy enjoys going to the arcade every day. He lives in the "now" so often that he says that the future can wait, but then very quickly ponders if the future will come.

Both of them try to act tough, but they realize it is no use. They eventually got rid of all the unhappy memories, hence the change in clothes; however, both of them realize that they must become a kind person before they succumb to their miseries and end up controlling their sadness because being kind makes people feel great. Since their world was made of misery, they now successfully dominate their world. The missile is another metaphor, but for 'what' exactly varies.

Interpretation 2:

In the end, they burn down their school. Some people say that burning down the school is a metaphor, but like the missile the meaning varies.

Japanese (日本語歌詞) Romaji (ローマ字)
泣きべそばっかかいてんのはどちら様 笑われた分だけやり返せ nakibeso bakka kaiten no wa dochirasama warawareta bundake yarikase
今に見てろと 手に取った物は 爆弾やナイフなんて物じゃないけど ima ni mitero to te ni totta mono wa bakudan ya naifu nante mon janai kedo
一切合切今後どうなったって約束しよう 背中の値札を引き剥がせ issaigassai kongo dou natta tte yakusokushiyou senaka no nefuda wo hikihagase
廃材みたいな 毎日だけど 捨てるのはまだ早いだろ haizai mitai na mainichi dakedo suteru no wa mada hayai daro

今日も打ち震えながら 終点駅のホームで kyou mo uchifurue nagara shuuten eki no hoomu de
明日の僕がまだ待っている わがままで鈍間な主のお迎えを ashita no boku ga mada matteiru wagamama de noroma na aruji no omukae wo

どうせ幾年経って車が空飛べど きっと何年経って機械が喋れども douse ikunen tatte kuruma ga soratobedo kitto nannen tatte kikai ga shaberedomo
何だって言いたいんだ 便利って言う前に 心の傷口を治してくれ nandatte iitainda benri tte iu mae ni kokoro no kizuguchi wo naoshitekure
あんな空でミサイルが飛ぶのなら そんなもので幸せを乞うのなら anna sora de misairu ga tobu no nara sonna mono de shiawase wo kou no nara
優しい人にならなくちゃ 僕は僕を肯定していけるかな yasashii hito ni naranakucha boku wa boku wo kouteishiteikeru kana

頭を上げて前向けと言われても 暗闇じゃ前もクソもないな atama wo agete mae muke to iwaretemo kurayami ja mae mo kuso mo nai na
一人で居れど 二人で居れど 孤独は孤独に変わりゃしねえ hitori de iredo futari de iredo kodoku wa kodoku ni kawaryashinee

死にたいとか そんな歌を歌って またそれかと杭を打たれた shinitai toka sonna uta wo utatte mata sore ka to kui wo butareta
だけれども それ程の事しか 口から溢れる言葉がどうしても見つからないや dakeredomo sorehodo no koto shika kuchi kara koboreru kotoba ga doushitemo mitsukaranai ya

今日の僕はまたこうして ゲーセンに吸い込まれる kyou no boku wa mata koushite geesen ni suikomareru
明日が来なければいいのにな 最終列車の汽笛が煩く鳴り響く ashita ga konakereba ii noni na saishuu ressha no kiteki ga urusaku narihibiku

どうせ愛なんてって薄幸ぶって強がっても きっと本心じゃ疚しさに襲われて douse ai nante tte hakkou butte tsuyogattemo kitto honshin ja yamashisa ni osowarete
どうだい、現状の僕は そうかい、どうしようもないな うるさいなお前なんて大嫌いだ doudai, genjou no boku wa soukai, doushiyou mo nai na urusai na omae nante dai kirai da
あんな空でミサイルが飛ぶのなら そんなもので命が飛ぶのなら anna sora de misairu ga tobu no nara sonna mono de inochi ga tobu no nara
優しい人にならなくちゃ 僕は僕を肯定していたい yasashii hito ni naranakucha boku wa boku wo kouteishiteitai
優しい人にならなくちゃ 心が悴む前に yasashii hito ni naranakucha kokoro ga kajikamu mae ni
