RIZE - Nandemo Nai Hi no Iwaikata (english translation)

The translation is a bit sketchy, but I really love the message of this song.

何でもない日の祝い方 / The Way to Celebrate the Ordinary Days

Lyrics: JESSE
Music: RIZE

So you say that a today where all you do is wait and wait has come?
A today where nothing ever changes has come
You wake up and go to sleep, go to sleep and wake up
Almost every day has fallen into routine
There aren’t enough highs*
Today there is nothing
There is nothing but the day called “today”
I had nothing to do, so I sang
And then I made this song

Get someone to say “Congratulations!”**
That’s the way to celebrate the empty days
Get someone to say “You’re amazing!”
Because today is an ordinary day***

There aren’t many days you can celebrate
Because there are so few, I want to make more
I guess this is a song to cheer on the people bored with today
Still, I’m singing it
It has to get better, so, without letting your tears spill over,
If you sing, maybe somehow it will happen****
Even if I’m being ignored, I’m still singing*****

Get someone to say “Congratulations!”
That’s the way to celebrate the empty days
Let’s party for today’s sake
Let’s be happy for the sake of tomorrow

Get someone to say “Congratulations!”
That’s the way to celebrate the empty days
Get someone to say “You’re amazing!”
That’s the way to celebrate the empty days

“Congratulations!”
Get someone to say “Congratulations!”
“Congratulations!”
Because today is an ordinary day

Notes:
*As in there aren’t enough high points or exciting moments in the day
**Could also be “It’s okay to say ‘Congratulations!’”, but I think this makes more sense
***Lit. “meaningless” days, but I think what he means is the everyday/ordinary days
****, *****These lines are a bit sketchy

J - Evoke the World (english translation)

Evoke the World

Music and Lyrics: Jun Onose

The flashlight is cut off
The bell tolls
The real you is gently waking up now

Hello hello hello
Hello hello hello
Hello hello hello
Hello hello hello

Feel the miracle
There’s nothing to be afraid of
Open your eyes
Let me feel it
Let me believe it
Tonight is all about you

At the edge of those frustrating days and this long, long time, I’ll keep waiting
I wonder if you can hear it from there now?
The thunder of a new beginning is breaking through to you
Let’s make a vow tonight, to be one forever

This scream
Your scream
Until it dries up,
This hard beat will continue to strike deep in my heart
The dream isn’t over

Let me see yourself
Let me see your truth
Let me see yourself
Let me…

This scream
Your scream
Until it dries up,
This hard beat will continue to strike deep in my heart
The dream isn’t over

On stormy days,
And lonely ones too,
No matter how far away,
My scream and your scream will continue to ring out together—eternally, eternally

Evoke the World

Kirisaku FURASSHURAITO
Uchinarasu kane no oto

Soko kara wa kikoeru no ka?
Hajimari no raimei ga
Ima kimi o tsukinukeru

LET ME SEE YOURSELF
LET ME SEE YOUR TRUTH
LET ME SEE YOURSELF
LET ME…

Kono sakebi ga
Kimi no sakebi ga
Kare-hateru made
Kono mune no oku
Uchitsuzukeru HARD BEAT

Arashi no yoru mo
Kodoku na toki mo
Donna ni tooku te mo
Kono sakebi ga
Kimi no sakebi ga

The Birthday - I'm just a dog (english translation)

I'm just a dog

Lyrics: Chiba Yusuke
Music: The Birthday

Prowling the night sky
Drawing a picture by tracing from star to star
I’m just a dog
I’m just a dog
I’m just a

Pressing the red clay down with my feet
Drawing wings with my footprints
I’m just a dog
I’m just a dog
I’m just a

I already only have half a tail
Still, I’m supposed to be able to meet you someday
Will it be today?
Or, maybe,

I’m just dreaming
I’m just a dog, but
That doesn’t mean that I’m ignoring the world

This world is going crazy, but
I think, maybe
That’s genuine proof that

I’m just a dog
I’m just a dog
I’m just a dog
I’m just a dog

I’m just a dog
I’m just a dog
I’m just a dog
I’m just a dog

I'm just a dog

Yozora o urotsuite iru
Hoshi to hoshi nazotte e o kaku
I’M JUST A DOG
I’M JUST A DOG
I’M JUST A

Akatsuchi fumishimete iru
Ashiato de tsubasa o egaku
I’M JUST A DOG
I’M JUST A DOG
I’M JUST A

Shippo wa mou           hanbun shika nai
Sore demo itsuka omae ni
Aeru hazu sa
Sore wa kyou ka
Soretomo

Yume bakka mite iru
Boku wa tada no inu dakedo
Sekai o SHIKATO shiteru
Wake ja nai no sa

Kono yo wa kurutte iru kedo
Tabun sore wa
Junsui na shouko
Da to omou

I’M JUST A DOG
I’M JUST A DOG
I’M JUST A DOG
I’M JUST A DOG

I’M JUST A DOG
I’M JUST A DOG
I’M JUST A DOG
I’M JUST A DOG

MO'SOME TONEBENDER - Hammmmer (english translation)

Some of this is pretty sketchy.

Hammmmer

Music and Lyrics: Kazuhiro Momo

How about feeling like you’ve come loose from and tossed away everything you have?
How about feeling like you’re about to hit rock bottom right now?
If it’s a hellish situation, or even if it’s a golden one,*
In the height of madness, the story is going to come out wrong

By nature, people are bestowed with six senses
While things like civilization were resting on their laurels, we were degenerating
Shouldn’t we stop licking each others’ wounds?
In just a bit, let’s have a better conversation**
Let’s become beasts

Grinding on my nerves***
Sharpening my nerves
Grinding on my nerves
Sharpening my nerves
A struggle in my head

A struggle in my head
Rushing around in my head
A lonely battle in my head

Grinding on my nerves
Sharpening my nerves
Grinding on my nerves
Sharpening my nerves

Grinding on my nerves
Sharpening my nerves
Grinding on my nerves
Sharpening my nerves

A struggle in my head

Notes:
*Not sure about the second part
**Don’t know about the “mou choi”
***It's the same line over and over again, but ”togisumasu” comes up as sharpen, grind, hone, etc., and I couldn’t decide which I liked better, so I wrote both. I think they have different connotations.
