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.

予感

アルバム: Dance 2 Noise 002 (歌詞カードありません)

ここは暗すぎて とても寒いんだ
あの小さい頃を 今思い出します
白粉[こな]の匂いのする この小さな体を
抱き締めては 泣き崩れていたね

* くちびるが {咲いた?} 君を感じながら
予感がする {咲いた?} 君に薔薇の死の訪れが

憶えていますか あの日 僕の泣き顔を
聞こえていますか 僕の泣き声が

狂おしい {咲いた?} この肌が君に溶ける
予感がする {咲いた?} 僕に薔薇の死の訪れが

{ splits in two? / my heart? / beats for you? }

* repeat

狂おしい {咲いた?}
予感が 予感がする

帰りたい 帰りたい

Premonition

it is much too dark over here / it is so very cold
those times when I was a child / I am remembering them now
emitting the smell of powder / this little body emits the scent ^
the times you held me were / full of bursting into tears weren’t they

* the lips of yours are [blooming?] / as I continue to feel you
a premonition [blooming?] / the arrival of the death of the rose for you

do you remember even now? / that day / the look of my crying face
can you hear it even now? / the sound of my crying voice

going crazy [blooming?] / this skin of mine melts upon your body
a premonition [blooming?] / the arrival of the death of the rose for me

{ splits in two? / my heart? / beats for you? }

* repeat

going crazy [blooming?]
premonition / I am having one

I want to leave / I want to leave

^ Note: the original kanji is “face powder” but Atsushi simply sings “powder” instead, which is a different word in Japanese. Also, at the end of the song, the phrase “kaeritai” can also mean “I want to go home.”


Love (Dakishimetai)

Lyrics by
From: Sacrifice, originally released on May 26th, 2004

Love (抱きしめたい)

沢田研二のカバーです。
歌詞: 阿久悠

* 抱きしめたい 抱きしめたい
抱きしめたい 抱きしめたい

皮のコート 袖も通さず
風に吹かれて 出て行く あの人を
色褪せた絵のような 黄昏がつつみ
ヒールの音だけ コツコツ響く
あなたは帰る 家がある
優しくつつむ 人がいる
指輪はずして 愛し合う
いけない女と 呼ばせたくない
秋に枯れ葉が 冬に風花
つらく悲しく 舞い踊る
さよなら さよなら
さよなら さよなら

* repeat {2x}

僕は今夜 少しばかりの
酒を飲んで 眠ればいいけれど
灰色の冬の町 駆け抜けた人の
心はどうして暖めるのか
あなたは帰る 家がある
優しくつつむ 人がいる
顔を隠して 生きていく
不幸な女と 呼ばせたくない

** 街にみぞれが 人に涙が
暗くさびしく 凍えらせる
さよなら さよなら
さよなら さよなら

** repeat

Love (I Want to Hold You) ^

* I want to hold you / I want to hold you
I want to hold you / I want to hold you

a leather coat / without putting on the sleeves
I am blown by the wind / I head on out / to (see) that person
just like a discolored painting / twilight is gathering upon us
heel, just the sound of it / the tap tapping resonates
you are returning home / you have a home
someone who gently holds tight / you have such a person
after removing the ring / love each other
a naughty woman is / not what I want to be called
in autumn, the dead leaves / in winter, flurries in wind
painfully and with sadness / they dance about
goodbye to you / goodbye to you
goodbye to you / goodbye to you

* repeat {2x}

Tonight I will / just a little bit of
alcohol drinking / it’s good if I fall asleep but
grey town in the middle of winter / running through the crowd of people
how is it that one is supposed to warm a person’s heart?
you are returning home / you have a home
someone who gently holds tight / you have such a person
I hide my face as I / go about my life
an unhappy woman is / not what I want to be called

** in the town there is sleet / and people have their tears
in darkness and loneliness / these will become frozen
goodbye to you / goodbye to you
goodbye to you / goodbye to you

** repeat

^ dakishimetai may also be translated as “I want to make love to you”

Lyrics by
From: Ai No Wakusei, originally released on June 23rd, 2004
何が欲しい 何を望む 翳ゅく世界
奪えばいい 信じるなら 明日など知らず

辺りは死に満ちて 後ずさりも出来ない 突き抜けろ

引きずってゆく 黒い影 俺は薄汚れている

それでも 今は 生きて 歌え

声を殺し涙を流している 「さようなら...」と、
ただ一つ この望み 叶うならば ぬくもりを...

風も無い 星も無い ゆく当てなど無い

今は 生き抜いて この夜に歌え

暗闇にまみれて逃げてゆく 影が一つ
捧げよう 悪魔へと 望むならば 何もかも 捧げる

愛しい者よ この胸に深く刻もう

I Hate You All

Lyrics by
From: Ai No Wakusei, originally released on June 23rd, 2004
破廉恥 極まりないその尻を
撫でて舐めて歯を立てた
ひどく左の頬を張られジンジンきちゃう
俺はEros. Thanatos. 欲情した
I hate you all!

退屈 極まりないこんな人生
沈む 歪む 溺れゆく
憂鬱だ 果てる瞬間はSlow Motion.
過去も未来も千切れ飛ぶ
強いKickを求め ゴミが掃き溜めさ迷う
俺はEros. Thanatos. 発情した
I hate you all!

信じるものが見つからない
あんたにはあるのかい 欲望以外に
Badabadida…

harenchi / kiwamarinai sono shiri wo
nadete namete ha wo tateta
hidoku hidari no hoho wo / harare jinjin kichau

胎児

ねえママ…今夜でサヨナラ その血で目覚める
羊水 波打ち際 はしゃぐ僕がいる
飛び散る星屑彼方へ 腐りゆく 美しい
幾千幾億の死 煌めく愛の詩

水平線にたたずみ その羽濡らしている
完璧な程 孤独だ

* 愛している 今夜僕は飛び立つんだ
愛している 雨や風に負けないんだ
愛している 人を傷つけ生きてゆくんだ

愛している…

誰かを壊してしまおう 最悪の気分だ
跡形も無いくらい 誰も彼もみんな

残らず飲み干したら 何か見えるかい

過ち犯すばっかり 帰れる子宮は無い
自尊心たっぷり行こうぜ!

hallelujah! dyeing a reddish hue / you were loved, you were loved
hallelujah! I am torn to pieces / I was loved, I was loved / not even a fragment

hallelujah!

Premonition

it is much too dark over here / it is so very cold
those times when I was a child / I am remembering them now
emitting the smell of powder / this little body emits the scent ^
the times you held me were / full of bursting into tears weren’t they

* the lips of yours are [blooming?] / as I continue to feel you
a premonition [blooming?] / the arrival of the death of the rose for you

do you remember even now? / that day / the look of my crying face
can you hear it even now? / the sound of my crying voice

going crazy [blooming?] / this skin of mine melts upon your body
a premonition [blooming?] / the arrival of the death of the rose for me

{ splits in two? / my heart? / beats for you? }

* repeat

going crazy [blooming?] / that skin of mine melts upon your body
a premonition

I want to leave / I want to leave

^ Note: the original kanji is “face powder” but Atsushi simply sings “powder” instead, which is a different word in Japanese. Also, at the end of the song, the phrase “kaeritai” can also mean “I want to go home.”

おはよう、と言っても 君はまだ眠っている

愛って何 愛は君 君の事さ 言葉じゃもう ばかみたい

おやすみ、と言っても 明日また会えるかな
楽しい夢を見て
ありがとう 言わせて 今じゃなきゃだめなんだ

誰もみな 幸せにならなきゃね
誰もみな 生まれては死ぬ

猫が見つめる ガラスの瞳 無邪気に鳴いている 泣いている

Rainy Days / the cryptic piano / Ah-

Rainy Days / not severing ties
if I turn my head toward the shadow
Rainy Days / the room at twilight is / Ah-
Rainy Days / the special person continues to live within my heart
Rainy Days / turning the skeleton key Chopin / Ah-

Space Oddity

Lyrics by
From: -Explosion- Ai No Wakusei Live 2004, originally released on December 16th, 2004
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

転生

* 満天の星に カミソリの風 肌に心地好く
僕をスライス 何も感じない 何も

草が花が萌え 卵は夢見る
誰かの亡骸 踏みしめて生きよう

乱反射の波 木漏れ日の森 泳ぐ 迷わずに
天使が歌う 手の鳴る方へおいで

君が僕が燃え 命が瞬き
僕らの亡骸 彼岸花咲かそう

時空の彼方で 君とすれ違い
指先わずかに振れ合い さようなら

Reincarnation

* the star in the heavens / has a wind of razorblades / it feels pleasant upon my skin
against me it will slice / I don’t feel anything / anything

the grass, the flowers are sprouting / the egg is having a dream
the bodily remains of someone / live your life with firm steps forward

the wave’s diffused reflection / forest of tree filtered sunlight / swimming / swimming astray
an angel sings out / come over to where hand claps ring out

you and I are burning away / the span of our lives blink away
the bodily remains of ours / a red spider lily blooms

beyond all time and space / you and I at a crossroads
with a little wave of our fingertips / goodbye to you

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
