04 Limited Sazabys - Me? (english translation)

I'm not very confident about this one. It's a fairly simple song, but I feel like I'm missing the mark with at least a few of these lines.

Me?

Music and Lyrics: GEN

Oni-san, follow the sound of my clapping*
All the people around me are acting too familiar
Where are you from?**
I found you
All the people around me are confusing

It’d be nice to go to your city
After all, it’s not too far away
Undo your shackles
Shine a light down by your feet***
Thanks for giving me peace of mind

It’s hard to believe, isn’t it?
That I could be with you forever
But, but, but…

“Wo ai ni”**** wow
Eeny, meeny, miny, moe
The two seconds when your eyes meet mine
They’re a huge challenge for me
I already can’t go back to how I was

“Wo ai ni” wow
Eeny, meeny, miny, moe
Your eyes meet mine for two seconds
But I immediately start feeling insecure
I can’t believe it

“Wo ai ni” wow
I need you
This is all your fault

Notes:
*”Oni-san kochira te no naru hou e” is a song that kids sing while playing blindfolded tag. The person who is “it” is blindfolded and the other kids clap their hands to try to lead them in the right direction
**Apparently “anta-gata doko sa” is also a song kids sing while playing. I’m not familiar with this game, but here’s a description of it: http://www.rabbitdays.com/#!anta-gata-doko-sa/cveq
***To light their way so the person doesn’t trip while walking in the dark
****Mandarin Chinese for “I love you”

Me?

Oni-san kochira te no naru hou e
Narenareshii hito bakkari da
Anta-gata doko sa
Kimi o mitsuketa
Magirawashii hito bakkari da

Iketara ii na kimi no machi made
Taishita kyori demo nai kara ne
Ashikase hazushi
Ashimoto o terashi
Anshin kurete arigato ne

Kantan ni shinjirarenai naa
Eien ni kimi to
Demo demo demo demo demo

Wo ai ni WOW
EENY, MEENY, MINY, MOE
Kimi no me ni me ga attara ni-byou da
Korya nandai mou modorenai

Wo ai ni WOW
EENY, MEENY, MINY, MOE
Kimi no me ni me ga attara ni-byou da
Demo totan ni fuan shinjirarenai

Wo ai ni WOW
I NEED YOU
Kimi no sei da yo

LIPHLICH - 7 Die Deo (romaji only)

Because everyone loves Japanese number wordplay.

I put the numbers in brackets just to show where the number that corresponds to the sound is written in the kanji. For example, the kanji will say "3美歌", which is read "sanbika" ("讃美歌") because "3" is pronounced "san" in Japanese.



7 Die Deo

Music and Lyrics: Shingo Kuga

HEY SHAKE THE DICE IN EXCELSIS DEO

ROTTENGRAFFTY - THIS WORLD (english translation)

This one is already about 70% English, but I felt like writing it up anyway.

NAOKI's lines in [ ].



THIS WORLD


Lyrics: NOBUYA, NAOKI, KAZUOMI
Music: KAZUOMI

Sing right now
Sing ready go
Sing and try

Get past the current moment
[Change tomorrow]
Pass through your limits
[Roar in the darkness]
No pain, no sadness, no solitude
I carry them out now

[First come up with an image in your head and think long and hard about it
When you can make a decision with conviction
When you can act freely like that, that’s the ideal
I want to save you]

Sing right now (go)
Sing ready go (go)
Sing and try
Sing right now (go)
Sing ready go (go)
Sing and try
[Even if the world was over
We would stand up! Build up!]
Sing right now
Sing ready go
Sing and try

[Hey, listen up, I don’t listen to fakers
Trivial complaints, excuses, bashfulness, pessimism – I don’t put up with any of those things
You’re not interested, and your life isn’t my responsibility,
But when you hear this song I know you’ll stand up and fight on your own]

Your uneasiness
Your dissatisfaction
I break them entirely
I want to save you

[Sing right now (go)
Sing ready go (go)
Sing and try]
[Sing right now (go)
Sing ready go (go)

[Sing right now
Sing ready go

You want to cry with me

[Sing right now (go)

We would stand up! Build up!
Sing right now

[All the good and bad things
All the good and bad things
All the good and bad things
Come to an end. Over!]

Therefore I want to sing now
You would understand
Sing right now
Sing ready go
Sing and try

[Even if the world was over
We would stand up! Build up!
It’s all up to me
It’s all up to you]
Do or die

THIS WORLD

Ima o koero

xTRiPx - 10+1 (english translation)

I think I at least got the gist of most of the verses, but the one about winning/victory really went over my head, so I'd take that part with a grain of salt. The starred lines are probably very wrong.

I played around with the engrish a bit to make it flow better, but the romaji has the original lyrics.



10+1

10+1 365 days* ago I recklessly turned my escalating emotions into sound
At that time, I didn’t know
That that song would allow me to meet so many new friends
Signs of the beginning

Nobody ever knows when the end will come
But even if it comes tomorrow, I’ll probably have no regrets
The morning this began, I had no idea what the future held
I got into the car and the sunlight shone on my rearview mirror
Now, I’ve piled up tons of dreams and equipment
And it’s a tool that links me to the friends reflected in it

And go against the flow
Somewhere for yourself

Life is what is changing
What can be seen with closed eyes
I’ll get to that future waiting up ahead someday
As long as I keep on believing
Even if my wish doesn’t come true
My life will glow

Somehow, we managed to raise up a big revolution
What’s left after that storm of passion?
Even if the answer is “zero”, that’s fine
Because life is addition

And go against the flow
Somewhere for yourself

Life is what is changing
What can be seen with closed eyes
I’ll get to that future waiting up ahead someday
As long as I keep on believing
Even if my wish doesn’t come true
My life will glow
-my life is glowing-

Does whether or not I was victorious factor into my value system? How?**
It depends on each individual’s life
Whether that victory is fake or a sure thing isn’t something someone else can decide
The image is free in the circling flow of time, uncertain of whether it’s moving quickly or slowly***
It seems like an answer is emerging, but it’s time to start again and lock up****
I can’t stop

10+1 365 days ago, I never could have guessed how much strength you would give me

Life is what is changing
What can be seen with closed eyes
I’ll get to that future waiting up ahead someday
As long as I keep on believing
Even if my wish doesn’t come true
My life will glow

Someday, somewhere

Never give up your dream
It will come true if you keep on believing
And you’ll shine too

Notes:
*I assume this means 10 years + 1x365 days, which would be 11 years, which makes sense since xTRiPx was apparently formed in 2003 and this single was released in 2014.
**, ***, **** I wrote my best guess for these lines, but they're probably wrong.

10+1


Juu tasu WAN sanbyaku-rokujuu-go-nichi mae wa gamushara ni tsunoru omoi o oto ni shita
Ano toki no jibun wa shiranai
Sono uta ga takusan no nakama to deai o kureru
SIGNS OF THE BEGINNING

Itsu owari ga kuru ka wa NOBODY KNOWS
Sore ga ashita demo tabun NO REGRETS
Hajimari no asa mirai shirazu ni
Norikonda BAKKUMIRAA ni sasu hi
Ima ja yamazumi no yume to kizai
Utsuru nakama tsunagari no TOOL

AND GO AGAINST THE FLOW
SOMEWHERE BECAUSE YOURSELF

THE LIFE IS, WHAT IS CHANGING
WHAT CAN BE SEEN WITH CLOSED EYES
Sono saki ni matsu mirai DO GET SOMEDAY
AS LONG AS KEEPING ON BELIEVING
EVEN IF NOT COME TRUE
MY LIFE WILL GLOW

Nanka DEKAI kakumei okoshite yan da
Ikimaite kekka nani ga nokotta?
Kotae ga ZERO demo ii

AND GO AGAINST THE FLOW
SOMEWHERE BECAUSE YOURSELF

THE LIFE IS, WHAT IS CHANGING
WHAT CAN BE SEEN WITH CLOSED EYES
Sono saki ni matsu mirai DO GET SOMEDAY
AS LONG AS KEEPING ON BELIEVING
EVEN IF NOT COME TRUE
MY LIFE WILL GLOW
-MY LIFE IS GLOWING-

Kachi ga douka kachikan dou ka dou da?
Sorezore no LIFE shidai

THE LIFE IS, WHAT IS CHANGING
WHAT CAN BE SEEN WITH CLOSED EYES
Sono saki ni matsu mirai DO GET SOMEDAY
AS LONG AS KEEPING ON BELIEVING
EVEN IF NOT COME TRUE
MY LIFE WILL GLOW

SOMEDAY, SOMEWHERE

NEVER GIVE UP YOUR DREAM
IT WOULD COME TRUE IF YOU KEEP ON BELIEVING
AND YOU’LL ALSO SHINING

Good Morning America - Kopipe (english translation)

Some of these lines might be a bit off the mark, but I think it's pretty easy to get the gist of what he's saying.



コピペ / Copy and Paste

Music and Lyrics: Shingo Kanehiro

“Are you okay?”
I want people to pay attention to me
My everyday stress and worries are piling up
I send out an SOS from my SNS*

I want people to say “cute!”
So I copy the popular people around me
And paste on a feeling of superiority

Piling up and piling up
I layer someone else’s colours onto myself
Anxiously, I overwrite the file and save it
Oh
Piling up and piling up
In the same colours as everyone else,
Favouriting things seemingly at random**

Kopipepapipepo
Bee-po!! Bee-po!!
Kopipepapipepo
Each person is doing it***

I upload things like clockwork
And click “Like” on a picture of a cute cat
And I even “Like” a picture of tasty-looking food

I want to seem like I'm paying attention,
So if I don’t check my blog, Instagram and LINE I can’t calm down

Piling up and piling up
I layer someone else’s colours onto myself
Anxiously, I overwrite the file and save it
Oh
Piling up and piling up
In the same colours as everyone else,
Favouriting things seemingly at random**

What are you guys doing?
I’m here
Being left behind is no good
It’s no good
What do you guys want to do?
How do I want to live?
Chasing after updates, I’m losing sight of it

Kopipepapipepo
Each person is doing it***

Piling up and piling up
I layer someone else’s colours onto myself
Anxiously, I overwrite the file and save it
Oh
Piling up and piling up
In the same colours as everyone else,
I’m forgetting the real me

Kopipepapipepo
Bee-po!! Bee-po!!
Kopipepapipepo
Each person is doing it***

Notes:
*Social Networking Site (Twitter, Facebook, etc.)
**As in clicking "favourite" on a tweet
***This is probably wrong. Honestly, I’m not really sure if the chorus has any meaning or if it’s just a bunch of sounds

Good Morning America - Time Slip shita mitai ni (english translation)

タイムスリップしたみたいに / It’s like I’ve gone back in time

A student doing physical training
On the high school field right behind my house
The way he was running
Reminded me of you

The dream we had back then,
Are you even a little closer to achieving it?
The barriers in the way are higher than we thought
Are you struggling to get over them like I am?

You’re out there somewhere too
Surely you’re out there somewhere
I wonder if you’re continuing to fight, hiding your feelings of bitterness
In that case, I
In that case, I definitely can’t give up
One day, we’ll laugh together again
Because I want to see you
It’s like I’ve gone back in time

I look at the changing landscape of our town with a sidelong glance
Today as well, our lives are getting a little shorter
Our hearts are burning up with passion
And we’re heading towards that distant future

You’re out there somewhere too
Surely you’re out there somewhere
I wonder if you’re continuing to fight, hiding your feelings of bitterness
In that case, I
In that case, I definitely can’t give up
One day, we’ll laugh together again
Because I want to see you

It’s like I’ve gone back in time
We’re talking about things like our dreams and ideals,
And together, we’re growing up a bit
We look down at our knees like we did in the past*

It’s like I’ve gone back in time
We’re talking about things like love and hope
And it seems like we’ll keep doing our best tomorrow as well
We’ll both keep doing our best tomorrow, right?

Notes:
* This line is probably wrong. I thought it might be an expression or something, but the only thing that comes up when I google it is this song, so I just wrote my best guess...

タイムスリップしたみたいに / TAIMUSURIPPU shita mitai ni

Ie no maura ni aru
Koukou no undoujou de
Taiiku shite iru
Hitori no seito
Hashiru kuse ga

THE BEATMOTORS - BEAT (english translation)

BEAT

Music and Lyrics: Masashi Akiba

Let’s go somewhere tonight
Because I’ve got a good feeling
And the smell of summer is in the air
The moon is so beautiful
Let’s look for something amazing
Since we’ve got nothing but time
Doesn’t it seem like there’s something out there?*
Doesn’t it seem like there’s something we can do?**
Tonight

Surely tonight
Surely tonight
While we’re singing

Neon lights
Crowds of people
The illusion of a guardrail on the highway
We don’t have any reason to be here
We don’t need any answers
Since we don’t have anything
We’re free to want everything
Like someone committing a crime of passion***
I’m becoming delirious, lost in a dream
Tonight

Surely tonight
Surely tonight
While we’re singing

Surely tonight
Surely tonight
Surely tonight
While we’re dancing

Chasing the night, it’s gonna be alright!
Yeah

Because I have a good feeling
And the smell of summer is in the air
Doesn’t it seem like there’s something out there?
Doesn’t it seem like there’s something we can do?
Tonight

Surely tonight
Surely tonight
Surely tonight
While we’re singing

Surely tonight
Surely tonight
Surely tonight
While we’re dancing
While we’re singing

Notes:
*,**,*** I’m not sure about these lines

*The kanji says “純情” (junjou), but he’s definitely saying “終電 “ (shuuden - “last train”), going from the English subtitles, so I guess that’s a typo?

NOA - Moon and Ark (english lyrics)

Again, these are already in English, but I just want to put some more NOA info online because they're great.

I hope they come back someday. :(



Moon and Ark

If we were friends, then things would not turn out like this way anyway
If we had met, when things had went turn out fine with pay
It’s time to decide how to say

That I love you
But I have to more than
To say it for you and me
“It’s goodbye. How can I die?”

I’m painting to my palette, making my ideal future’s color
But I notice not to use these blue paints so far
I’m saying to my palette these won’t mixed like ill deepest lover*
Throw the blue to garbage here
It’s goodbye, bye for now
And see you again

If I were you, I’ll never ever make fun of those Rudolph and so
If I hate you, I’ll never ever want talk to you
It’s time to decide what to do

What I want to
And I have to more than
To say it for you and me
“It’s goodbye now”

I’m painting to my palette, making my ideal future’s color
But I notice not to use these blue paints so far
I’m saying to my palette these won’t mixed like ill deepest lover
Throw the blue to garbage here
It’s goodbye, bye for now

Tell me bless you, I miss you, and hold you
Bye for now

Goodbye my third love

Goodbye my third love
I’ll miss you forever
Goodnight my third love
Till the time

Goodbye my third love
I’ll miss you forever
Goodnight my third love
Till the time

Till the time

*It says lover in the booklet, but is it just me or does it sound more like "mother"?

NOA - 3days of April (english lyrics)

This isn't a translation, since the lyrics are already in English, but I didn't see them online, and more people need to experience the beauty of NOA's engrish.



3days of April

You are gone

Turn on lights and watch the BTV shows
Finding page of comic, see me low
Burn on pans and making cheap cereals
Drinking juice then sending me to go

I know it’s my selfish thoughts
I was calling in a sec
I can’t wait to see you
You had come
Take ‘em away
Time had taken you away

You are gone, and then you are gone
And you are gone
Time had taken you away

Suck a Stew Dry - Bokura no jibun sensou (english translation)

Finally done the English for this. There are a few lines that might be a bit off, but I think the message of this song is pretty clear. After seeing the confidence Kosei has in the video for this song versus some of their earlier work, it really does seem like something that he's taken to heart.



僕らの自分戦争 / Our Internal War

Music and Lyrics: Shinoyama Kosei

The clothes that I’m wearing are things that were made by someone else
The thoughts that I’m struck with are ideas that someone else has had before

I turn all the originality I can summon up into a weapon
And face my invisible enemies
Over and over, I brandish it in front of them

How long will this internal war* continue?
What the hell will it take to mould my vague existence into shape?
Ah, before I know it I’ll be gone**
When I can’t grab hold of anything like this, I wonder who exactly I want to become

The road that I should set my sights on is a path that was made by someone else
Even the wall that I’m fighting against is a wall that someone else has already passed over before me

Even the best answer I’ve ever come up with – one that I’ve searched for with all my might
Was met with comments like “Isn’t that idea played out?” from people I don’t know***

So, what should I do?

How long will this internal war continue?
What the hell will it take to mould my vague existence into shape?
Ah, before I know it I’ll be gone
When I can’t grab hold of anything like this, I wonder who exactly I want to become

How long will this internal war continue?
What the hell will it take to mould my vague existence into shape?
Ah, before I know it I’ll be gone
But I’m me, this is how I am,
And I can't become anyone else

Let’s continue our internal war like this
They might not be enough to dazzle anyone else****
But I hope we can find our answers someday

I’ve gotta head out on the 8 o’clock train
I’ve gotta head out on the 8 o’clock train

Notes:
*as in a war between a person and their self
**meaning he’ll be dead and out of time
***I'm really not sure about this line
****Lit. more like “They might not be enough to make people say “I don’t believe it!”

HAN-KUN - With me (english translation)



With me

Music and Lyrics: HAN-KUN

Are you loving each other Japan?
No, everyone in the world!!
This message will reach you, I have no doubt!!

I won’t stop, or rather, I can’t stop!!
I just can’t stop this feeling!!
My never-ending love…I’m sending it out to you

So, stay…
With me!! With me!! With me!!
I don’t want to be away from you, so stay…
With me!! With me!! With me!!
Always, always by my side, stay…
With me!! With me!! With me!!
I don’t want to be away from you, so stay…
With me!! With me!! With me!! Yeah!!

Baby I love your way
Baby I love your mind
Baby I love your way
Always on my mind

Baby I love your way
Baby I love your mind
Baby I love your way
Always on my mind

The more I grow to love you, the more I feel the distance between us*
Suddenly, one day it was like I was being guided by a spotlight shining on you
Before I knew what was happening, I was humming a love song

Out of all the meetings in my life, that was the first time I’d felt that way
Without thinking, I reached out my hand to grab it tightly
Our love ties us together
We’re close together in our hearts, but when we’re so far apart I need to tell you how I feel
What?**

So, stay…
With me!! With me!! With me!!
I don’t want to be away from you, so stay…
With me!! With me!! With me!!
Always, always by my side, stay…
With me!! With me!! With me!!
I don’t want to be away from you, so stay…
With me!! With me!! With me!! Yeah!!

It’s a happy day
When I hear you’re on the way to see me I’m filled with love and happiness
Even on those sleepless nights, there’s nothing wrong, everything’s gonna be alright!!
Every day that I spend with you, with my heart pounding, is just too precious
But it’s not long before we can’t talk, we’re communicating just by mail and we can’t meet up

To distract myself from that loneliness, I gather up my friends and we stay up all night – until morning
But I can still feel a gaping hole in my heart
Because you’re the only one for me
Even though I’ve decided that I won’t give this dream up for anyone…

Why are the two of us so far apart now, even though I don’t want to be?
You’re disappearing into the sky
But I’m always just chasing after you
No matter how many times I see you, I still have so many things I want to say
So, I think of us singing “With me” in the future

The road forward is paved with our smiles and tears, and the days reflecting the passing of the seasons
And sometimes lost chances at love
But before I realized it, I knew true love
The glimmer of the ring on your finger
Our bodies on top of one another
A life taking up residence***
Climbing up the stairs of adulthood
And at that time, we became a mother and father

We’re at the starting point
And before long we’ll start walking
We’re curious, so we’ll know pain as well
We’ll be joined by our words
And the love we’re raising will take form
That love will cross through the ages
The words that have been passed down and that will be carried into the future, I believe them and sing
This unchanging love, I’m sending it to you now

So, stay…
With me!! With me!! With me!!
I don’t want to be away from you, so stay…
With me!! With me!! With me!!
Always, always by my side, stay…
With me!! With me!! With me!!
I don’t want to be away from you, so stay…
With me!! With me!! With me!!
Now, I hope it reaches you

Baby I love your way
Baby I love your mind
Baby I love your way
Always on my mind

We’re dreaming the same dream
Overflowing with love
And in our lives from now on, there’ll always be no problem

Wo, you’re always on my mind

Are you loving each other Japan?
Now, this melody will travel all over the world
You gotta love each other Japan!! No, I’m wishing everyone in the world happiness!!
You’re always on my mind

Notes:
*Meaning the physical distance, because he's traveling all the time
**I think this is like they’re so far apart that the other person can’t hear?
***As in pregnancy

With me

Aishiatte kka nipponjin?

HITT - I'm crazy for you! (english translation)

I found this one on my computer today as well - I completely forgot that I finished the English. It's still such a fun song.



I’m crazy for you!

A world without you, would be like a world without an oasis
And, in that case, I’d have no reason to live either
I’m crazy for you!

A world without you, would be like a world with no sun
And one where tomorrow never comes
I’m crazy for you!

Our meetings are always sudden
And I’m always so shocked that I go blank
Thinking about it later is inevitable*
I suddenly find myself making excuses

I don’t even know your name
And because you have no reason to talk to me
I don’t even know what you’re like

You’ve shot me through the heart
But a fresh breeze is blowing
I can feel vibrations going through my whole body
Contradicting impulses
What the hell is this feeling?

It’s gotten to the point that all the beautiful things I’ve seen in my life look like imitations,
I’m crazy for you!

I want you all to myself
But I’m sure your smile brings everyone else just as much happiness
I’m crazy for you!

If I could hold your hand
If I could hold you in my arms
If I could be at your side
Still, it’s always “if”

This frustration isn't so bad,**
Considering that I love you so much it hurts

I miss you…
Faraway…
I miss you…
Faraway…

Can I kiss you baby?
Can I kiss you baby?
You’re farther away from me than anyone, but closer to my heart than any other

I don’t mind if you make fun of me
I already know I’m an idiot
But isn’t becoming an idiot over someone what love is about?
I’m crazy for you!

"Aishiteru"
"I love you"
"Je t’aime"
These are words of love that I say only when we come together
If I’m ever able to say them to you honestly, you’ll see that I’m crazy…I’m crazy for you

Notes:
*, **Don’t know about these lines

I'm crazy for you!

Kimi no inai sekai nante OASHISU no nai sekai sa
Sore ja ikiteru imi mo nai
I’m crazy for you!

Kimi no inai sekai nante taiyou no nai sekai sa
Sore ja ashita wa yatte-konai
I’m crazy for you!

Deai wa itsumo totsuzen masshiro ni natte bouzen
Ato ni natte omou hitsuzen iiwake ni tsukau guuzen

Sorya namae mo shiranai yo
Hanashita wake ja nai shi
Seikaku nante naosara nanimo shiranai no ni

Moshi dakiaeru no nara
Moshi soba ni ireru nara
Sou itsudatte “moshi”

Wari to waruku mo nai FURASUTOREESHON

I miss you…Faraway…
I miss you…Faraway…

Can I kiss you? Baby
Can I kiss you? Baby

Kokoro wa dare yori soba ni iru yo

Kimi no inai sekai nante OASHISU no nai sekai sa
Sore ja ikiteru imi mo nai

Kimi no inai sekai nante taiyou no nai sekai sa
Sore ja ashita wa yatte-konai

I’m crazy

I’m crazy for you!

The Birthday - BECAUSE (english translation)

So, it's three years later, and I'm just updating this with an English translation. I forgot that I had most of this done already on my old computer. Just took a second to fill in a few blanks.

It's still kind of sappy, but I still love it.



BECAUSE

Lyrics: Chiba Yusuke
Music: The Birthday

Purple haze, together forever

Because in my heart, smoke is building up
It’s like the purple and pink have mixed
And they’ll never disappear or be washed away, like a memory
Sometimes, it’s also like being enveloped in black*

I like love songs, but you don’t
Even though my heart is wide and vast, it’s burning up
It’s serene, it’s tiring, it’s quiet and warm
Even in the dead of night, I still feel like I’m going crazy
Because my heart is being enveloped in smoke
And it won’t clear up

Because in my heart, smoke is building up
The haze is becoming heavy, almost like lead
It won’t move
A cracked aurora
So, I wonder if it can’t exist without dancing**

Purple haze, together forever
Pink haze, together forever

Purple haze, together forever
Pink haze, together forever

Purple haze, together forever
Pink haze, together forever

Purple haze, together forever
Pink haze, together forever

Together forever

Together forever

Together forever

So, I have something I need to tell you
I have something I need to…

Notes:
*I guess this means that being this madly in love is also kind of painful sometimes?
**I have no idea what this means. I think he's comparing the feeling of loving this person to the way the lights of the aurora seem to be dancing?

BECAUSE

PAAPURU HEIZU TOGETHER FOREVER

BECAUSE ore no HAATO ni wa kemuri ga kakatteru*
MURASAKI to PINKU ga majiriatta you na
Kesshite nagarenai omoide ni mo nita
Toki ni wa kurokute kasundari suru

RABU SONGU wa suki sa kedo anta no sore ja nai
Hirokute dekai no ni mune kogashite iru
Sumi-kitte tsukarete shizuka de atatakai
Mayonaka soredemo ki ga kurui-sou na
BECAUSE ore no HAATO ni wa kemuri ga kakatteru
Hareru koto wa nai

BECAUSE ore no HAATO ni wa kemuri wa kakatteru
Omoku tachikomete tada namari no you ni
Kesshite ugokanai hibiwareta OORORA
Dakara sa odorazu ni irarenai darou

PAAPURU HEIZU TOGETHER FOREVER
PINKU NO HEIZU TOGETHER FOREVER
PAAPURU HEIZU TOGETHER FOREVER
PINKU NO HEIZU TOGETHER FOREVER
PAAPURU HEIZU TOGETHER FOREVER
PINKU NO HEIZU TOGETHER FOREVER
PAAPURU HEIZU TOGETHER FOREVER
PINKU NO HEIZU TOGETHER FOREVER

TOGETHER FOREVER
TOGETHER FOREVER
TOGETHER FOREVER

SO kimi ni tsutaenakya ikenai koto ga aru**
Kimi ni tsutaenakya ikenai koto ga

Notes:
*The kanji says “nazenara,” but he says “because” in the song. It means the same thing.
**Kanji says “dakara,” Chiba says “so.” Again, it means the same thing.

the telephones - D.E.N.W.A (english translation)

I always misheard the line "Disco disco bakka itteru kedo" as "Disco disco bakka in the ghetto". Don't know if I should be relieved or disappointed that I was wrong...



D.E.N.W.A*

Music and Lyrics: Akira Ishige

I said DISCO, urban DISCO** (I am DISCO)
I sang about love and DISCO, love and DISCO (LOVE & DISCO)

When the four of us get together it’s party time
Can you hear the devil calling from the dance floor?
Once you experience it, you’re immediately brought to a world of gilded splendor
It doesn’t matter whether you’re from the East or West

D.E.N.W.A

Yaa yaa yaa yaa yaa yaa
Bururururu tuttuttuttu haaaaa
(telephones time!!!)

Yaa yaa yaa yaa yaa yaa
Bururururu tuttuttuttu haaaaa
(one more time!!!)

We danced like monkeys to the monkey disco (new disco!)
We danced like idiots to the ABC disco (yay!)

I’m only saying “disco, disco”, but I’m always just a music lover***
Break out of your boring everyday routine
And be a sniper like Golgo****

D.E.N.W.A

Yaa yaa yaa yaa yaa yaa
Bururururu tuttuttuttu haaaaa
(telephones time!!!)

Yaa yaa yaa yaa yaa yaa
Bururururu tuttuttuttu haaaaa
(one more time!!!)

We are fuxxxkin’ DISCO!!!

D.E.N.W.A

Yaa yaa yaa yaa yaa yaa
Bururururu tuttuttuttu haaaaa
(telephones time!!!)

Yaa yaa yaa yaa yaa yaa
Bururururu tuttuttuttu haaaaa
(one more time!!!)

Notes:
*denwa = “telephone” in Japanese
**Ishige has worked in a bunch of their past song titles into the lyrics (Urban Disco, Love&DISCO, etc)
***I think he means that he likes music other than disco
****The character from Golgo 13 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golgo_13)

D.E.N.W.A

Watashi wa DISUKO to itta AABAN DISUKO (I AM DISCO)
Ai to DISUKO o utatta RABU ANDO DISUKO (LOVE & DISCO)

Yon-nin de orinasu PAATI TAIMU
