ReVision of Sence - I'm a kuzu ningen (english translation)

I know very little about this band, but I like bratty singers, and this guy is basically gaki incarnate. The translation I did might be a bit off in places, but I think the general idea of the song is pretty clear.


I'm a クズ人間 / I’m a Garbage Human*

Lyrics: Kawai Kazuma
Music: ReVision of Sence

I’m a garbage human

The Japanese representatives of the dregs of humanity that have been forced to the fringes of schools, workplaces and families and looked down upon – let’s start our counterattack now!

Good people, FUCK YOU!!!

More than yourself, you need to look out for others
Help those around you
Help those around you
If I become easy for others to use and smile, am I a good person?**

It’s strange, isn’t it?
It’s ridiculous, isn’t it?
It’s the norm, but something about it is wrong, isn’t it?
Are the eccentric people that have gone off the rails really trash?

Boys, even if you’re trash,
It’s fine if you don’t become a good person
There’s no good or bad
The line between fitting in or not is always paper thin***

Your selfishness will become for someone else’s sake one day
If you have the time to give thanks, then go do it
We are garbage people

I’m a garbage human

Going to a good university, getting a good job, and being surrounded by a wife and kids
Who decided that being able to buy a family home is the definition of success?

Even if you hurt someone and give up on being courteous,
You might as well live for yourself, and then one day you’ll end up doing it for someone else****

What do you want to do now?
What do you want?
Where do you want to go?
If we’re supposed to be free to do anything,
Why can’t we go anywhere?

Even if you quit working for a company and go to a public employment service, you’ll be judged for being too picky about work
Is a life that’s gone off the rails really trash?

Boys, even if you’re trash,
It’s fine if you don’t become a good person
There’s no good or bad
The line between fitting in or not is always paper thin

Your selfishness will become for someone else’s sake one day
If you have the time to give thanks, then go do it
We are garbage people

I’m a garbage human

Boys, even if you’re trash,
It’s fine if you don’t become a good person

If living only for yourself is garbage,
Then being garbage is fine
It’s your life – you’re the one that needs to take responsibility for it

No matter how low you are, there is a place you’ve been dreaming of
For me, it’s here
Where is it for you?
We are garbage people

I’m a garbage human

Notes:
*I feel like “I’m human trash” works better in English, but the “I’m a” being in English rules that out
**. ***, ****Not sure about these lines, so I’d take them with a grain of salt

LEZARD - LOVE + MUSIC (english translation)

I don't usually go for this style of VK, but Lime is exactly the type of singer I have a major weakness for. (Short and bratty-looking, basically :P)

The lyrics are fairly simple, but I've starred some lines that I might have interpreted wrong, so I'd take those with a grain of salt.



ラブ+MUSIC / LOVE + MUSIC

Lyrics: Lime
Music: Kousuke

Uhh, what did you eat yesterday?
Even if you had some really bad pasta, that’s fine
Uhh, yesterday I discovered a girl that was really my type - Do!! Do!! Do!!
High tension

Love lala chu chu chu love lala
Yes lover, I’m totally losing myself in you
Love lala chu chu chu love lala
Yes lover days

It’s not even in the Daijirin**
Won’t you teach me the meaning of true love?

Love is a surprise in this world
There’s not enough love to go around
I’m drying up and withering
So, aim it at my heart

It’s a surprise in this world
Hey, there’s a love shortage
Now, that heart-pounding, fluttering feeling
I’ll aim it at you

It’s like the Milano-style doria from Saizeriya***
Somehow, it’s burning a little today, isn’t it?****
But it’s fine, the girl that came to see me with it
That girl is just so incredibly cute
High tension

Love lala chu chu chu love lala
Yes lover, I’m totally losing myself in you
Love lala chu chu chu love lala
Yes lover days

It’s not on Wikipedia either
Won’t you teach me the meaning of true love?

Love is a surprise in this world
There’s not enough love to go around
I’m drying up and withering
So, aim it at my heart

It’s a surprise in this world
Hey, there’s a love shortage
Now, that heart-pounding, fluttering feeling
I’ll aim it at you

It’s not in the textbook, but
I know what love means
Do you remember the note I added?
The meaning of love
It’s you, now as well*****

The world is going mad
Look, there’s a shortage of love, isn’t there?
Sometimes, I get so sick and worried from the darkness that I can’t sleep

The news is depressing
Look, there’s a shortage of love
People who don’t know the meaning of pain
Are bearing scars and being hurt******

Give the world love +
Look, love makes it go round
Still, I’ll give it to you
Love + music, yeah!!

Notes:
*, ****, *****, ******Not sure about these lines,
**A dictionary
***Apparently a doria is like a casserole dish, and Saizeriya is an Italian restaurant chain

ラブ+MUSIC / RABU + MUSIC

Eetto kinou tabeta mono wa nanda?

Bentham - Time Over (english translation)

I have a feeling that I botched this really badly, but here's my attempt at translating this song into English.

The way I read it was that "time over" meant the person singing was dying, and I assumed that's what the doppelgangers in the video meant. However, I saw another translation that took a very different approach to it, so I might be way off.



タイムオーバー / Time Over

Lyrics: Tatsuya Ozeki
Music: Reiji Tsuji

Dripping down, I’m melting
Spinning round and round, I’m falling
Today is being filled with farewells*
Hey, who is that front you’re putting up?**

Wait a second, my time’s over
It’s sad, isn’t it? That cloudy sky
Wait a second, my time’s over
It’s sad, isn’t it? That cloudy sky

One, two, three, four, five
One, two, three, four, five
I’ll run

Not yet, there’s still something after this
Each time I take a breath,
Pieces break off and fall down
Not yet, there’s still more
I’m disappearing with the bubbles from the soda

Dripping down, I’m melting
Spinning round and round, I’m falling
Today is being filled with farewells*
Hey, who is that front you’re putting up?**

Getting excited, I’m filled with joy
Unchanging things are disappearing
I stand still and look back
Hey, who is that front you’re putting up?**

Wait a second, my time’s over
It’s sad, isn’t it? That cloudy sky
Wait a second, my time’s over
It’s sad, isn’t it? That cloudy sky

One, two, three, four, five
One, two, three, four, five
I’ll run

Not yet, there’s still more
I’m disappearing with the bubbles from the soda

Dripping down, I’m melting
Spinning round and round, I’m falling
Today is being filled with farewells*
Hey, who is that front you’re putting up?**

Getting excited, I’m filled with joy
Unchanging things are disappearing
I stand still and look back
Hey, who is that front you’re putting up?**

Notes:
*, ** These lines are probably very wrong

T/ssue - Tokyo city (english translation)

I was kind of curious about this song. T/ssue aren't shy about mentioning the fact that they're from Nagoya, so I thought it was funny that they were writing about Tokyo.

The English translation I did is kind of sketchy. I'm fairly certain that what I have for at least the first line I starred is very wrong. If anyone has a correction for that, or any of the other lines, it would be greatly appreciated.


東京city / Tokyo city

Music and Lyrics: Sone Ichirou

You started to lose your way on the path,
So you started to become too cautious,
And things aren't going well, are they?
You’re listening to the sound of cars,
Being poisoned by exhaust fumes,
But every day, you’re giving your all
Shining brighter than the stars up in the sky in a corner of this city

In Tokyo,
On the Tokyo Expressway,
If it feels like the city lights are blocking your view,
Don’t say a word
I’ll light up your days
Because you can hold on tight to this song

I can see the ruins of the star I looked up at when I was a child
The sky from that time has disappeared, hasn’t it?
One by one, we’re each going to settle on our way of life
You will too
You will too

Even though it’s cruel, time passes by,
That crowd of people will be left behind
I don't think there's any sort of deadline when you need to throw your dreams away*

In Tokyo,
On the Tokyo Expressway,
If it feels like the city lights are blocking your view,
Don’t say a word
I’ll light up your days
Because you can hold on tight to this song

In Tokyo,
On the Tokyo Expressway,
This burning emotion will light up your tomorrow
So don’t say a word
I’ll be supporting you from the bottom of my heart
While you’re in Tokyo City**

Notes:
*I’m fairly certain that this is very wrong
**It just says “Tokyo City”, but I assume this is what is being implied?

東京city / Toukyou CITY

Mayotte kita michi dakara
Shinchou ni nari-sugite,
Nakanaka umaku ikanai na
Kuruma no oto,
HaiGASU chuudoku,
Zenryoku no mainichi wa
Sora ni aru hoshi yori kagayaku toshi no katasumi de

Toukyou,
Shuto-kou,
Machi no akari ga
Anata no shikai o saegiru you nara
Nanimo iwanaide
Hibi terasu
Kono uta ga yorisotte yuku kara

Osanaikoro ni mita hoshi no zangai
Ano koro no sora wa kiete shimatta no
Tsugitsugi to ikiru michi wa kimaru yo
Kimi mo
Kimi mo

Mujou ni mo toki wa sugite
Torinokosarete yuku hitobito no mure
Sono yume o suteru kigen na do doko ni mo nai darou

Toukyou,
Shuto-kou,
Machi no akari ga
Anata no shikai o saegiru you nara
Nanimo iwanaide
Hibi terasu
Kono uta ga yorisotte yuku kara

Toukyou,
Shuto-kou,
