Lyrics

Lyrics are through 2012--need to add Arui Wa Anarchy, The Mortal, Schaft second album

Transcription notes:
{words in braces} are what is being sung in the song but is not in the album's lyric booklet; these lyrics may come from other sources and will be noted. If the source is not noted then it's simply how I hear it and may be subject to inaccuracies. If I'm not sure what is being said, then I will put a ? mark.

(words in parenthesis) are backing vocals, notes, or samples.

In Japanese: [words in brackets] is the way the lyricist wants you to read the kanji and is not the traditional way nor is it usually even an acceptable way.

In English: [words in brackets] are the traditional way of reading the kanji or the original English of a word written in katakana in Japanese.

Translations: (if I bother to do it--I'm lazy and I think translations are dangerous) My goal is to be accurate but also to do so in a way that you can sing along. Not saying I get it right but I try to balance the following: 1. nit-picky via back translations (if I can translate it back into Japanese and it doesn't match the author's original words, then I will try to do a better translation in English) 2. syllabic matching (if the original line in Japanese was 10 syllables then I will try to translate it into 10 English syllables so you can sing along) and keep the English word in the same part of the sentence for sing-along purposes 3. not assume the author's intentions and make huge leaps in translations (the reader should be allowed to come to conclusions on their own) 4. keep the same tone: if the original lyrics were casual, dirty, slang, masculine, etc then I'll seek English words with a similar tone (here is where huge leaps may be made because the translator may color the translation with how they speak rather than how the author may speak if they learned English)

*Please note that males in Japanese often use a word for "I" which is masculine only and is often used in the lyrics presented here. This gendered nuance is not translatable in English.

20th Century Boy

Lyrics by
From: Uncategorized, originally released on March 16th, 1973

Buck-Tick have a song entitled “21st Cherry Boy” but it is not a straight cover of “20th Century Boy” by T. Rex. As you can tell by the title and the chorus, it is obviously some sort of homage.

Title: 20th Century Boy
Composer: Marc Bolan

Friends say it’s fine, friends say it’s good
Ev’rybody says it’s just like rock’n’roll
I move like a cat, talk like a rat
Sting like a bee, babe I wanna be your man
Well it’s plain to see you were meant for me, yeah
I’m your boy, your 20th century toy

Friends say it’s fine, my friends say it’s good
Ev’rybody says it’s just like rock’n’roll
Fly like a plane, love like a car
Hold lots of hands, babe I wanna be your man – oh
Well it’s plain to see you were meant for me, yeah
I’m your toy, your 20th century boy

20th century toy, I wanna be your boy
20th century toy, I wanna be your boy
20th century toy, I wanna be your boy
20th century toy, I wanna be your boy

Friends say it’s fine, friends say it’s good
Ev’rybody says it’s just like rock’n’roll
Move like a cat, talk like a rat
Sting like a bee, babe I wanna be your man
Well it’s plain to see you were meant for me, yeah
I’m your toy, your 20th century boy

20th century toy, I wanna be your boy
20th century toy, I wanna be your boy
20th century toy, I wanna be your toy
20th century boy, I wanna be your toy

Original lyrics: Édith Piaf & Chante Marguerite Monnot
Japanese cover by Fubuki Koshiji
Japanese lyrics: Tokiko Iwatani [this is a translation of the Japanese lyrics]

with those burning hot hands of yours / I want you to hold me, embrace me ^
with only just the two of us / how I want us to live

[life out?]

pressing cheek to cheek
the burning passionate kiss
exchanging earthly delights
you and I, just the two of us
(I want to live loving you
want to love, want to love you)
as long as we are alive I
don’t need anything else
don’t need anything else

don’t need anything else
you and I, the two of us
will go on living, you know
that is my only wish
don’t you know my only wish
(I want to live loving you
want to love, want to love you)
you and I, the two of us
you and I, the two of us

with those burning hot hands of yours / I want you to hold me, embrace me
only the boundaries of our lives / is how long I want to love
the boundaries of our lives / is how long I’m going to love you

firmly embracing / the burning fingers are holding hair
while the two of us are entwined / while we love and are beloved
the two of us will exchange kisses
it’s the burning fire of love
it is the fire that burns me
it is the love that melts my heart

** with only just the two of us / that’s how I want us to live

** repeat

with only just the two of us / how I want us to live
how I want us to live

^ all instances of the word “I” are the feminine, for which there is no equivalent in English; the Japanese word for hold/embrace also means to make love

Reflecting the light off ocean waves sways a parasol
Seaside terrace is where we’re sitting
When emptying a bottle of wine with that girl
A thundering roar rings out
From the sky came a missile hurling down to the ground
Japanese shore crabs playing along the seashore
Begin to run around in a frantic panic
Vacation goers once enjoying their holiday
Disperse this way and that to escape
The sandy beaches have been blown up
It’s a pity that this is the end for everyone

** The bomber planes number 400
They pack and crowd the sky as they fly around
The sound of the machine guns reverberate
Anti-aircraft gunfire bullets fly about
A 500 kg bomb / A gasoline bomb
Rain and hail also fall from the sky
The resort hotel has been destroyed and crumbled to pieces
The sparks of fire drift off to the ocean
All of a sudden the sky has been burned black
Turned into a tragedy is the summer beach
The history of the seashore that was thick with palm trees
Was smashed to bits in the time it takes to say “ah”

1. This is a play on words. The line states the seed (tane) smells. Earlier, Hide said to “tane akashi” (reveal one’s secrets). Tane means something different in each case but goes to talk about planting the seed. It’s similar to saying someone is a “bad seed” in English and then change seed to the literal meaning.
2. This is referring to the proverb by Chinese philosopher Zhuangzi, “i no naka no kawazu ooumi shirazu” (“a frog in a well does not know the great sea”).
3. This is referring to the children’s song “Hotaru Koi” (Come Fireflies) in which you sing about luring the firefly away from the bitter (dirty) water to the sweet (clean) water.
4. Henoheno moheji are letters from the Japanese alphabet used to make a drawing that resembles a face, as ubiquitous as a stick figure.
Note: I’m not 100% positive that “daiya” is “diamond” and “bura” is “bra” because it’s in katakana so it could be a foreign word (English) or it could be placing emphasis on a Japanese word. Plus, diamond is “daiyamondo” and bra is “burajaa”, but Japanese do cut off words. Since I’m not that familiar with how Hide of X Japan talked or wrote lyrics, I can’t be sure.

Hymne à l’Amour

Lyrics by
From: Uncategorized, originally released on January 1st, 1950

This song was covered in Japanese by Fubuki Koshiji as “Ai No Sanka”, which Atsushi also made a cover of.

Lyrics: Édith Piaf
Music: Marguerite Monnot

Le ciel bleu sur nous peut s’effondrer,
Et la terre peut bien s’écrouler,
Peu m’importe si tu m’aimes,
Je me fous du monde entier.

Tant qu’ l’amour innondera mes matins,
Tant qu’mon corps frémira sous tes mains,
Peu m’importent les problèmes,
Mon amour, puisque tu m’aimes.
J’irais jusqu’au bout du monde,
Je me ferais teindre en blonde,
Si tu me le demandais.
J’irais décrocher la lune,
J’irais voler la fortune,
Si tu me le demandais.
Je renierais ma patrie,
Je renierais mes amis,
Si tu me le demandais.
On peut bien rire de moi,
Je ferais n’importe quoi,
Si tu me le demandais.

Si un jour, la vie t’arrache à moi,
Si tu meurs, que tu sois loin de moi,
Peu m’importe si tu m’aimes,
Car moi je mourrais aussi.

Nous aurons pour nous l’éternité,
Dans le bleu de toute l’immensité,
Dans le ciel, plus de problème,
Mon amour, crois-tu qu’on s’aime?

Dieu réunit ceux qui s’aiment.

English translation found on internet (not credited).

The blue sky can collapse on us
And the earth fall to ruins,
I don’t care, as long as you love me.
I don’t care a damn about the world.
As long as love lights my mornings
As long as my body trembles under your hands
I care little about problems
My love since you love me.
I would go to the end of the world
I would have my hair dyed blonde
If you asked me.
I would go and unhook the moon
I would go and steal a fortune
If you asked me.
I would reject my country
I would reject all my friends
if you asked me.
People can laugh at me
I would do anything
If you asked me.
If one day life tears you away from me
If you die whilst away from me
I don’t care as long as you love me
Because I will die too
We will have eternity all to us
In the blue all immensity
In heaven no more problems,
My love, do you believe we love each other
As God reunites those that love one another.


I Like Chopin

Lyrics by
From: Uncategorized, originally released on January 1st, 1983

This song was covered in Japanese by Asami Kobayashi as “Amaon Wa Chopin No Shirabe -I Like Chopin-“, which Atsushi also made a cover of.

Artist: Gazebo
Album: Gazebo
Lyrics: Gazebo & Pierluigi Giombini

Remember that piano
So delightful unusual
That classic sensation
Sentimental confusion

Used to say
I like Chopin
Love me now and again

* Rainy days never say goodbye
To desire when we are together
Rainy days growing in your eyes
Tell me where’s my way

Imagine your face
In a sunshine reflection
A vision of blue skies
Forever distractions

Used to say
I like Chopin
Love me now and again

I Wanna Be Your Dog

Lyrics by
From: Uncategorized, originally released on August 5th, 1969

Inspiration for Michirou Endou’s song “Omae No Inu Ni Naru”, which was covered on “Romanticist ~The Stalin/Endo Michiro Tribute Album~”. The source song was supposed to be a cover of “I Wanna Be Your Dog” but Michiro turned it into an original song during the recording process.

Artist: The Stooges
Album: The Stooges
Composer: The Stooges (Iggy Pop, Dave Alexander, Ron Asheton, Scott Asheton)

So messed up I want you here
In my room I want you here
Now we’re gonna be face-to-face
And I’ll lay right down in my favorite place

* And now I want to be your dog
Now I want to be your dog
Now I want to be your dog
Well c’mon

Now I’m ready to close my eyes
And now I’m ready to close my mind
And now I’m ready to feel your hand
And lose my heart on the burning sands

Winking back is all you return to me

La Vie en Rose

Lyrics by
From: Uncategorized, originally released on January 1st, 1947

Buck-Tick have a song entitled “La Vie en Rose”. Although it is not a cover of Edith Piaf, it is important to note that this song may have rubbed off some influence as it was her signature song.

Lyrics: Édith Piaf
Music: Louiguy (Louis Gugliemi)

Des yeux qui font baisser les miens
Un rire qui se perd sur sa bouche
Voilà le portrait sans retouches
De l’homme auquel j’appartiens

Quand il me prend dans ses bras
Il me parle tout bas
Je vois la vie en rose
Il me dit des mots d’amour
Des mots de tous les jours
Et ça me fait quelque chose
Il est entré dans mon coeur
Une part de bonheur
Dont je connais la cause
C’est lui pour moi, moi pour lui, dans la vie
Il me l’a dit, l’a juré, pour la vie
Et dès que je l’aperçois
Alors je sens en moi,
Mon coeur qui bat

Des nuits d’amour à plus finir
Un grand bonheur qui prend sa place
Les ennuis, les chagrins s’effacent
Heureux, heureux à en mourir

Quand il me prend dans ses bras
Il me parle tout bas
Je vois la vie en rose
Il me dit des mots d’amour
Des mots de tous les jours
Et ça me fait quelque chose
Il est entré dans mon coeur
Une part de bonheur
Dont je connais la cause
C’est toi pour moi, moi pour toi, dans la vie
Tu me l’as dit, l’as juré, pour la vie
Et dès que je t’aperçois
Alors je sens en moi
Mon coeur qui bat

English Translation by Mack David

Hold me close and hold me fast
The magic spell you cast
This is la vie en rose
When you kiss me, Heaven sighs
And though I close my eyes
I see la vie en rose
When you press me to your heart
I’m in a world apart
A world where roses bloom
And when you speak
Angels sing from above
Every day words
Seem to turn into love songs
Give your heart and soul to me
And life will always be
La vie en rose

I thought that love was just a word
They sang about in songs I heard
It took your kisses to reveal
That I was wrong, and love is real

Hold me close and hold me fast
The magic spell you cast
This is la vie en rose
When you kiss me, Heaven sighs
And though I close my eyes
I see la vie en rose
When you press me to your heart
I’m in a world apart
A world where roses bloom
And when you speak
Angels sing from above
Every day words
Seem to turn into love songs
Give your heart and soul to me
And life will always be
La vie en rose

On the ruins

Of her pleasure

Nice age
Ripe age
Ready to be
Killed by a thrill

The child
In her smile
Is cracked
Her innocence
Smashed
There’s nothing left
Of her party dress
The bow in her hair
Isn’t there

** repeat

Through the prisons of perfume
Alone with her cheekbones
Counting lovers she has known
In the secrets of her room

* repeat

The taste of first lipstick
The mechanics of a wink
The china of the doll
Divine on her chaise lounge

During the night of lead / the blood circulates
I want it, I want it
Up on top of the table / I will die for you
Without thinking about it / I’m gonna be your dog

You who continue to dance along / the palm of your hand is cold
I will warm it up for you / continuously licking^ {continuously licking}
Let Me Down
Let Me Out
Without thinking about it / I’m gonna be your dog

You who cannot die at all / just twist something around your neck
It is the glass of steam / I cannot erase it {I cannot erase it}
During the night of lead {during the night of lead} the blood circulates
Let Me Down
Let Me Out
Without thinking about it / I’m gonna be your dog

{ * repeat 4x }

^ the literal word for “lick” in Japanese also means in its most mildest terms, to be mean to someone such as to pick on them. Usually this is a fighting word and in such moments I tend to translate it with vulgar language, i.e., “don’t lick me” would be equivalent to “don’t mess with me” or “don’t fuck with me”.

Cover of a David Bowie song
Lyrics: David Bowie

Ground control to Major Tom
Ground control to Major Tom
Take your protein pills and put your helmet on
(Ten) Ground control (Nine) to Major Tom (Eight)
(Seven, six) Commencing countdown (Five), engines on (Four)
(Three, two) Check ignition (One) and may gods (Blastoff) love be with you

This is ground control to Major Tom, you’ve really made the grade
And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
Now it’s time to leave the capsule if you dare
This is Major Tom to ground control, I’m stepping through the door
And I’m floating in a most peculiar way
And the stars look very different today
Here am I sitting in a tin can far above the world
Planet Earth is blue and there’s nothing I can do

Though I’m past one hundred thousand miles, I’m feeling very still
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
Tell my wife I love her very much, she knows
Ground control to Major Tom, your circuits dead, there’s something wrong
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you…
Here am I sitting in my tin can far above the Moon
Planet Earth is blue and there’s nothing I can do

From: Uncategorized, originally released on January 1st, 1941

Buck-Tick have a song entitled “Taboo” but it is not a straight cover of the by Margarita Lecuona. There is a musical credit to Margarita as Buck-Tick use the main riff (credited as “interlude melody”) and you will notice some lyrical inspiration with the use of the title.

Composer: Margarita Lecuona

Alma del Africa lejana
llena mi pecho de candelas

Y el pobre congo hijo de esclavo
añora siempre las palmeras
las foscas selvas primitivas
de dioses misteriosos y de fieras

Ochún, Ifá, Obatalá, Changó y Yemayá
Ochún, Ifá, Obatalá, Changó y Yemayá

Tierra del Africa añorada
el río caudaloso y el cielo azul
siempre domina el alma blanca

Tabú…tabú…tabú

Ifá, Changó, Obatalá, Ochún y Yemayá
Ifá, Changó, Obatalá, Ochún y Yemayá

Tabú…tabú…tabú

English lyrics by Sidney Keith “Bob” Russell

Soul of distant Africa
Fills my chest with fire

And the poor child of the slave
Always longs for the palm trees
Of the primitive jungle
Of gods of mystery and war

Ifa, Ochun, Obatala, for Chango and Yemaya
Ifa, Ochun, Obatala, for Chango and Yemaya

Land of the longed for Africa
The deep rivers and blue sky
There, if a black man looks at a white woman

Taboo…taboo…taboo

Ifa, Ochun, Obatala, for Chango and Yemaya
Ifa, Ochun, Obatala, for Chango and Yemaya

Taboo…taboo…taboo

From: Rockarollica II, originally released on April 26th, 2006

バリウム・ピルス

ザ・ルースターズのカバーです。
歌詞: 大江慎也

年は過ぎ季節はうつりかわる
バリウムピルスの量は増え
街かどにたたずむ奴らの
顔色は日増しに青ざめる
精神科医が君を訪れ
質問を始めよう
毎日何を食べてるかい
どんな夢を見るかい
ブラウン管に絵を書いてみなさい

* サイコセラピストと呼ばれるのは
ニューホスピタルの集団療法
エレクトロニクスを駆使して
フローズン・ハートで治療する
君は近ごろ少し変さ
どこか普通じゃないと思ったら
3685[スリー・シックス・エイト・ファイヴ]にTelephone
診療してもらうんだ
ヒョウイ現象ボケ状態
精神変調被害妄想気味

** All your bad dreams diving in
How long did you watch t.v.
yesterday
All your good dreams fade away
How long did you watch t.v.
yesterday

The years pass by, the changing of seasons come and go
The valium pill dosage continues to grow
The kids who hang out standing on the street corners
Their complexion gets paler with each passing day
The psychiatrist pays you a visit
Let’s begin the questioning
So tell me, what are you eating everyday?
So tell me, what do you dream of?
On the Braun tube [cathode ray tube] please draw a picture for me

* Psychotherapist, to call upon the doctor at
The new hospital’s group therapy sessions
Electronics, making full use of the machines
Frozen heart people conducting treatments
You know, recently you have been acting a bit strange
If you think that something is not normal then
“3685” dial on the telephone
You will be checked and treated
Vacant state caused by dependency
Signs of mental abnormality, persecution complex

** All your bad dreams diving in
How long did you watch t.v.
yesterday
All your good dreams fade away
How long did you watch t.v.
yesterday
