English translation:

Make noise and describe everything spreading
I am going until I die
Of course, it’s so
I eat midday and the dead of night

I am useless
Yes I am

Burn, shine, expose, and disgrace
I won’t lose, no need to be reserved
What’s the matter?
I eat the sun and moonlight

I am a vagabond
Yes, I am

Destroy the window frame, burn down the picture frame
After how many times we swallow words
And how many times we swallow ourselves
How far can we go?
I am going, keep going, and still I am going

Make noise and describe everything spreading
I am going until I die
Of course, it’s so
I eat midday and the dead of night

I am useless
Yes I am

    General CommentAs far as the title goes . . .

    -no-suke is a male name suffix, typical of Samurai warriors. Saito Takao, a famous manga comic writer, created a samurai hero Muyou-no-suke in late 60's. But Yoshino's song title explicitly denies the association with a distinct Chinese character for suke, which, commonly used for "support, assistance", makes the title sound as "No need for your support", in combination with muyou.

    muyou: unnecessary, useless, dispensable. Quite a few 20th century Japanese artists defiantly claimed that their art was meant to be muyou, as against yuuyou, "practical, useful, resourceful things and persons such that might help bring up Japan to become a modern powerful nation, to be admitted in the club of ruling Western nations as an honorary member."
