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.

Victims of Love

Lyrics by
From: Koroshi No Shirabe, originally released on March 21st, 1992
凍りつく様に今も微笑む 通り過ぎてゆく肌のぬくもり
胸の鼓動が時を数える 溜め息まじりくちづけせがむ

* とぎれとぎれかすかに 喘ぐ声を聞く

**「…離れないで…」花びら 熱く震えてる

死にたくなるような汚れぬ夢

*** からめあう指と指の先に 青くつやめいた傷痕
もつれあう舌を深くうずめ Ah-a とろけるほど甘く

抱きしめあえば胸はゆらめく 慰めあえばそれは儚く
そっと迷い込んだ時のはざまで 想いは海を赤く色どる

* repeat

MAD

Lyrics by
From: Koroshi No Shirabe, originally released on March 21st, 1992
僕は狂っていた ひざをかかえながら
傷をなめていた 汁を垂らしながら
逃げ出すサイレンの渦 こうして生きてゆくのか

僕は狂っている 舌を溶かしながら 赤い海の底で溺れる夢を見る
想い出す優しさだけを そうして眠りにつくよ

アスファルトを抱いて 熱にうなされている
僕を破裂させてくれ

僕は狂っていた もう二度と会えない 全て狂っていたどうって事無いサ
逃げ出すサイレンの渦 想い出す優しさだけを

子守唄の中で聞いた あなたの鼓動[おと]
僕を狂わせてくれ

ああ ただ星が綺麗だね 僕はお前にはなれない
ああ 輝きが消えてゆく もうすぐ太陽の破片

Oriental Love Story

Lyrics by
From: Koroshi No Shirabe, originally released on March 21st, 1992
交わす言葉すれ違い 寄り添いただ見つめあう
忘れはしない Romance
分かちあえる夢もなく 傷つけあう事ばかり
あの日の幻よ

涸れた湖の辺りで 髪をほどくあなたを今も

浅い眠りの夢の中 束の間なら抱きあおう
ああ もう これきり Oh

* 古い水彩画の中で 濡れた瞳にじんだ少女

** Stay with me, you can’t stay here
後姿
Stay with me, I love you forever
手を振る影
Stay with me, you can’t stay here
少し寒い
Stay with me, I love you forever
全て頬につたう

* repeat

** repeat

Stay with me, you can’t stay here

全て頬につたう…

{ Stay with me, you can’t stay here

Speed

Lyrics by
From: Koroshi No Shirabe, originally released on March 21st, 1992

スピード

人差し指を頭に突き立て ブッ飛んでいる
いつでも頭ギリギリ XXXX 噛み砕いて ^
ためらいをとめて 摩天楼 ダイブするのさ

今夜も頭ギリギリ 骨まで透けて見えた
安らぎをとめて 今宵の共犯者達へ

女の子 男の子 一筋 傷と涙を
痺れた体 すぐに楽になるさ
蝶になれ 華になれ 何かが君を待っている
愛しいものに全て 別れ告げて

-イカレタノハオレダケ キミハスコシマトモダ-

スピードをあげて 摩天楼 ダイブするのさ
ボリュームをあげて 今宵の共犯者達へ

女の子 男の子 君には自由が似合う
これが最後のチャンス 自爆しよう
蝶になれ 華になれ 素敵だ お前が宇宙
愛しいものを全て 胸に抱いて
君が宇宙

目覚めは今日も冷たい 月夜のガラスケース
今夜も頭ギリギリ 骨まで透けて見えた

^ XXXXの歌詞は麻薬関係言葉でアルバムとライブで変わりますけど普通は「錠剤」を歌います。レコーディングでは「錠剤」を逆再生させて録音されて、「いいアシド」に聞こえます。テレビで「コカイン」も歌ったかも。

supiido [speed]

hitosashi yubi wo atama ni tsukitate / buttondeiru
itsudemo atama girgiri / XXXX kamikudaite ^
tamerai wo tomete / metenrou / daibu [dive] suru no sa

^ XXXX are drug related words that changes during live performances as compared to the album but usually “jouzai” (tablet/pill) is sung. In the recording, backmasking is used for “jouzai” and it sounds like “ii ashido” (good acid). On tv, “kokain” (cocaine) may have been sung.
