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.

I am the town that loves to lie, that shame passed by
this is the city where the windows weep, the only answer to my conceit
my god is good my god is right he’ll give me what I need tonight

you are the one I recognize but in your warmth i could realize
I am the sum of all I despise but I soon start to feel
alive!

run around with a
switchblade
come with you in the morning light

my god is good my god is right he’ll give me what I need tonight
my god is good my god is right he’ll give me what I need tonight
this finger itches for the spike and soon
in this city where you weep
into the womb that is your only tomb!

my god is good my god is right he’ll give me what I need tonight

TONIGHT!


Cold Light

Lyrics by
From: Switchblade, originally released on September 21st, 1994
in your cold light I make this gun my lawful wife
in your cold light I come alive with a stanley knife
in your cold light I can see right through my life
take me my maker
got the noose got the neck
if only I could break her hate her save her
if only I could break her hate her save her
from you

in your cold light I walk into tinseltown
in your cold light these sheets are lit with broken hearts
in your cold light I will soon surrender
here comes success
with your fear with your fist and a flick of the wrist

here comes a candle to light you to bed
here comes a chopper to chop off your head
here comes a candle to light you to bed
here comes a chopper to chop
chop
chop off your head

I’m coming on success
with your fear with your fist and a flick of the wrist
SURRENDER! SURRENDER! SURRENDER! SURRENDER!
SURRENDER! SURRENDER! SURRENDER!
SURRENDER!


Crown

Lyrics by
From: Schweinstein, originally released on May 9th, 2001
Anytime that you want anything
Everything you will lose
Anything that you choose
Anything you say you believe
Ask and you will receive
You will receive
So close your eyes and believe

* I gave my youth my sanity
Waste of time and energy
Spent my life in agony
I really gave you all I had { all I had }
Like pearls for schwein
All I had
Like pearls for schwein { all I had }
Like pearls for schwein { all I had }
Like pearls for schwein

With that smile on your face
And come in your hand
With a promise and gun
I unload and come
You can file and accuse
With your interest and dues
The front row of my misery show
I’m the one you can blow

* repeat

{ all I had
like pearls for schwein }

Fetid Air

Lyrics by
From: Switchblade, originally released on September 21st, 1994
I was coming up for air
I was sick she was despair
my mind was thrilling
her body was willing
how I weep to sleep
I count the cost
I can’t believe all that I have lost do you hear me?
or feel me? believe me? when I tell you could I beed
less than is needless, could you be
shamed damned and blamed
like I shame you?

I was gonna get my share
I was drunk on the fetid air she was breathing
I was seething
she was blotched, beautiful bloody and bored
I was coming and coming and coming
it was running on her open sores do you hear me?
or feel me? believe me? when I telll you could I bleed
less than needless, could ou be
shamed damned and blamed
like I shame you?

I’ve got a legacy of hot night and bloody height
I was brief baby
she was my relief
now I hide in the light and in the love
and in this fear of a
switchblade

do you hear me? or feel me? believe me? when I tell you could I bleed
less than is needless, could you be
shamed damned and blamed
like I shame you?
like I shame you and you and you?
like I shame you?
like I shame you and you and you?
like I shame you?

* やがて幕は切り裂かれる 今宵帝王となる
夜を食いつくし 美酒とお前の肉の中
半狂乱のまま 我らに光 栄光よあれ
はしたなく卑しく俺は しゃぶりつく
この世に零れる酒 艶めく肉
そしてお前を
はしたなく卑しく俺は しゃぶりつく

** お前の名はマルガリータ 死神と踊ってる
罪という年代ものさ 一息に飲み干そう

化けの皮が取れかかってるぜ
俺もお前も獣なのさ

*** 歓喜 それは愚かな夢 殺しと欲望の渦
俺はもうデタラメに 酒をぶちまけて踊る
半狂乱のまま 帝国に闇と退廃よあれ

罪という年代ものさ 一息に飲み干そう
化けの皮が取れかかってるぜ
俺もお前も獣なのさ
俺もお前も獣なのさ
まあ かわいい子豚ちゃん

Ich bin das fett
Ich bin der strecker
Schmatze mit den li-li-lippen

Bist so schon bist so jung
Manchmal gerade manchmal krumm
Ich schenk’ dir tausend stunden
Die zeit heilt alle meine wunden
You’ve done the crime
Now take the time
Lie right back and praise the schwein
Emptiness that fills my cup
But I will keep on banging up
You know the captain he is drunk
Of this ship that is now sunk

Lard lips and I’ll lick ya baby

My Sanctuary

Lyrics by and
From: Schweinstein, originally released on May 9th, 2001
…Doubting
…Trying
Not to look at the face of the man who is dying
To look for the face of the man who is lying
The amber gambler is low and loaded
His rusty steed turns to burn into my soul
I hear the cries
My body lies in sanctuary
The long way home I cannot seek
He knows the pain its special place
I know its look I know its{your} face

* 美しきが この目を潰す
Bright whites the killing kind
罪より 罰は愛され
Two blacks don’t make a white
この激情 捨て去られる運命
The broker of my broken dreams
目に映る この世は 地獄と言う
My cell is my sanctuary

** There’s a black space where my soul should be
A gaping wound where my heart could be
I feel so low I feel like Christ
I see my head is turning white {and}
The knuckles twisted raw and I’m so empty
And there’s no respite
You prey together on the small
Hell-vision shows it every night

* repeat

** repeat

White silver draws black lies
Bright whites the killing kind
Two wrongs don’t make a right
Two blacks don’t make a white
Devotion isn’t what it seems
The broker of my broken dreams
Hell is all that I see
My cell is my sanctuary

{ my sanctuary
my sanctuary
my sanctuary

(translation of verse with Japanese only)
it is beauty that will / pulverize this eye of mine
Bright whites the killing kind
from the crime comes / beloved punishment
Two blacks don’t make a white
in this fit of rage / I throw away my destiny
The broker of my broken dreams
my eye will reflect / this world of ours / that is known as hell
My cell is my sanctuary

Nothing

Lyrics by
From: Switchblade, originally released on September 21st, 1994
I scrape my name off the seven skins of excess
I hang my pickled brain on the rusty nail of success
I scratch my sodden skin stained eyes…
I scratch my sodden skin stained eyes
with the suffering of my kin and kind
with the suffering of my kin and kind
with the suffering my killing’s kind
my killing kind
my killing kind
my killing’s kind
my killing’s kind

I wanna know how you feel from the inside out
I wanna know how it feels out of my sinside on your inside
I’m on the inside

This is the anthem of the dispossessed
this is the endless chain that sprouts aggression
this is the bigotry that grows and grows into oppression
I am the poison water that lies within your well
these words are wind though you wear them well
the wretched blade turns to your wrists
endows it with its special gifts

I scratch my sodden skin stained eyes…
I scratch my sodden skin stained eyes
with the suffering of my killing kind
my killing kind
my killing kind
my killing’s kind
my killing’s kind

from you to the / depth of the night that ends up melting away and disappearing

the queen of darkness / won’t you give me your saliva
the scent of musk that emits from / that skin of yours

Organzola won’t you please hand over the drugs to me
Organzola inside of the wound deepens
Organzola a look of laziness
Organzola ending at the limit

Slice

Lyrics by
From: Switchblade, originally released on September 21st, 1994
once twice sometimes thrice I came for you with a stanley knife
nicely nicely come on excite me I wanna feel your metal slice me
feel defile oh so dumb I see you hurt now here I come
I’m silent I’m violent lie still while I have my will
I’m soon hot soon cold

a mismarriage of velvet how I feel it
my skin is aflame my mind is lame
you twist this knot and feed my pain
slice slice here comes the knife
slice slice here comes the knife
feed the fire on my funeral pyre you’re the pearl I’m the pain

you’re the lesion I’m the lesion I hear a great big noise inside my head
a squinting eye a squeezing finger bide the hurts with a chink of lead
there’s a fear filled blood red sea in my mind a punt of lies is my legacy
gimme the space and I’ll show you the pace
you’re the fish I’m the foul meat in the middle
turn up the fire put the flesh on the griddle
you’re the place that holds me in its spell
that holds me like the native place
to you I talk, walk and stalk

the seaboard secret strikes the line
the land I burn is all that’s mine
burn your lover
burn your shrine
fill my cup and bide my time
I’m the silent cyclone the silent medicine
this killin’ is fillin’ my cup to brimmin’
you obey while I betray
I taste and die heave and cry
yearn for one more reddened eye
the tree the flower and the seed
will supporate and dry and bleed

your secret skin will spell my name
your secret skin will shelter me
your secret skin will smell of me
your secret skin will hide this
shame

The HERO INside

Lyrics by and
From: Switchblade, originally released on September 21st, 1994
he comes to me
the man with no face
a hero in a mask of raw flesh
he is a simple genius
flower blood cells
the hero inside my brain
oh the burning sands, the greasy rope
electric hands, my broken hope, my mind machine
I feel my stomach churns…
bathsheba burns!
the blood red rain will stain your name
BEHOLD THE LORD OF PAIN
he speaks I cannot hear
but I understand
he plugs me into his socket
I slip into his brain
flower blood cells
the hero inside my brain
yours is the mark
one hopeless dream
and comes your guilt
this sordid stream
my mind machine
I feel my stomach churns
bathsheba burns
the blood red rain
will stain your name
BEHOLD THE LORD OF PAIN


Thirsty Fly

Lyrics by
From: Switchblade, originally released on September 21st, 1994
any sense of dignity you have felt
any sense of reality I need help
any sense of this animal you could be
any sense at all give it to me
any sense at all give it to me
come under me come under me

lie to believe
one mile to concede
here I thirst and I plead
burn that skin off your knees
burn that skin off your knees

any sense of hope and what could be
I wash away in self pity
in the grip and grime this muddled time
I throw more wine on the drowning mind
give it to me come unto me
come under me come under me

lie to believe
one mile to concede
here I thirst and I plead
burn that skin off your knees
burn that skin off your knees

who’s the one who saw him die?
“I am said the fly
with my little eye
I’m the one who same him die”
“put a little sugar on there baby
…and a little talcum is always walcum”

little busy thirsty fly drink with me and drink as I
little busy thirsty fly drink with me get drunk as I
little busy thirsty fly
drink with me and watch me die

lie to believe
one mile to concede
here I thirst and I plead
burn that skin off your knees
burn that skin off your knees
burn that skin off your knees
burn that skin off your knees
burn that skin off your knees
burn that skin off your knees…


World’s Junk

Lyrics by
From: Schweinstein, originally released on May 9th, 2001
(sample: Kiss it, lick it, smell it.
And kiss it, lick it, smell it.
And kiss it, lick it, smell it.
And kiss it, lick it, smell it.
And kiss it, lick it, smell it.
And kiss it, lick it, smell it.
And kiss it, lick it, smell it.
And kiss it, lick it, smell it.
And…)

You’re my Singapore sling
My little Stalingrad thing
I buy my cigarettes in tens
You’re the zoom zoom in my lens
You’re a social disease
Gonna do what I please
(I’m a?) Got a social disease
Better do what I please

(sample: Kiss it, lick it, smell it.
And kiss it, lick it, smell it…)

Sixteen tininess, what do you get?
You got puke on your shirt
And you’re covered in shit
One line, one life
One little flick for one little knife
Now you’re a social disease
But you’re gonna do what I please
You’re a social disease
Don’t you know you do what I please

(sample: Kiss it, lick it, smell it.
And kiss it, lick it, smell it…)

I’m a social disease
You’re my Singapore sling
My little Stalingrad thing
My little Stalingrad thing
My little Stalingrad thing
My little Stalingrad thing
You’re a social disease
Get down do what I please
I’m a social disease
Stalingrad baby

{ Stalingrad baby
Stalingrad baby
yeah yeah yeah }

* You get hatched
You get matched
I’m the one gonna get dispatched
I’m a social disease

(sample: Kiss it, lick it, smell it.
And kiss it, lick it, smell it…)
