TOKIO LIAR’ is the newest single by band Kami-sama, I Have Noticed. The song discusses the city of Tokyo as a symbolism for a certain set of values of society and rebels against these values.

The lyrics start with sarcastic phrases like ‘I can laugh at this’ and ‘rules are all useless’. The lines are filled with fierce statements and imperatives, directly addressing the audience and reinforcing the impact. The following part stresses on two words that come from English, ‘fellowship’ and ‘checkmate’. Justice is nowhere to be seen in this city, and only when the chime of end of life rings do people realize the fellowship they have been in with others, creating a situation of checkmate.

In the next part of the song, the visuals connect more tightly with lyrics to convey the self-mocking determination of the group of people. The scientific fiction type of world depicted in the first part of the music video has more magic realism elements added to it when a large group of people wearing robot costume is mixed with people in the streets.

In a dystopian way, the song encourages us to go against values of injustice of society instead of planning a future following these values. The unique point of view brings us insight on how a situation can be interpreted in various ways.
