The love we make
The tears we cry
Sometimes they're just not real

The heart we break
The wounds we make
Sometimes they just don't heal

I think i'm losing weight again
I think i'm losing taste again
I think i broke my heart again
Will you stay with me

I think i lost my love again
Maybe i sold my heart again
I think i'm left with none but pain
Will you stay with me

The things we say
The things we hear
Sometimes they're not real

The thing we touch
The thing we feel
Sometimes they're just not real

    My InterpretationI think the title is the key to understanding this song. Tokyo could be viewed as a city of speed, a forward-thinking environment who is set on fast and efficient progress. If we connect that with the lyrics, the song sheds light on the other side of this speedy advancing: becoming a stern, cold person. While chasing for means to make their lives better and shinier, people can forget how to truly interact with those around them, so they're at the risk of becoming hollow and lonely. I think this song is a great demonstration of how it doesn't take big words or shocking imagery to make a strong point that truly resonates with the lives of modern people.
