The song has a great vocal sound in which you can start doing a harmonizing sing along duo with it. There are some good clips of it out there with the romanized Japanese language as well. I didn't know it was made into a stage play till this article came up so it is something its moving on to the next stage(ie).

kokoro literally means "of the mind"

This will give you a better idea of just WTF they are talking about. Rolling Eyes

Literally, "kokoro" means "heart". Other meanings are metaphorical extensions of this. Just like, in another language "grok" means "drink".
