I really like a lot of Ken's songs, so I'm not surprised I love this. I LOVE it way more than anything Namie's put out in the last few years. I'm just not interested in the English language stuff she's been putting out lately. THIS is the Namie I love.

Lyrics:

A cold stare pierces me, as I toady to the strong
A bead of sweat slips down my back. Someone said 「I hate you」

I gush about how cute her sugary voice is.
I fucking hate the way she laughs. Someone said 「I hate you」

I can't live without inking out the beauty of being true to yourself

Can you rejoice in his happiness? Don't you find yourself coveting what she has?
Are you really that special? it's me, why don't you kill me?

Can you love me when I'm so grotesque? Doesn't it really make you want to cry?
Do you have a password for living in the moment?  it's me, why don't you kill me?

When I type in 'I'm', it autocorrects to 'I'm sorry.'
The apology is at my fingertips but not in my heart. Someone said 「I hate you」

The bluer the sky, the gentler the breeze,
the deeper my sighs. Someone said 「I hate you」

You, who are so true to yourself say, "There's no light behind your eyes."

Do you take pleasure in his unhappiness? Can you be real with her?
Aren't you sniggering inside? it's me, why don't you kill me?

Can you love me when I'm so grotesque? Doesn't it really make you happy?
Do you have a password for living in the moment?  it's me, why don't you kill me?

(yeah, why don't you kill me?)

Let it out, lay it bare.

Can you rejoice in his happiness? Don't you find yourself coveting what she has?
Are you really that special? it's me, why don't you kill me?

Can you love me when I'm so grotesque? Doesn't it really make you want to cry?
Do you have a password for living in the moment?  it's me, why don't you kill me?

Here's the translation for Yuuki no hana, the song I posted the other day.
Like so many recent songs, was obviously written to bring comfort to those affected by the Toho earthquake. Warning, this song may make you tear up. (At least, it does me.)

The flower of courage

If you've forgotten how to laugh, I'll be by your side, clowning around like a pierot.
The morning sun (DON'T LOOK BACK) so full of hope (STEP BY STEP)is now piercing the darkness (KEEP WISHING)

You're not alone. You have people who care about you.

Can you hear us? WE WILL MAKE YOU SMILE Smile,
and as you gradually collect all these kindnesses, look, the flower of courage will bloom.
That's right. Just for you. We'll make the flower (smiles) bloom so that they reach you

Even if we're apart, our hearts are one as we dream of the same future
Take my hand and hold on tight, so that we'll never get separated again
imagine (DON'T LOOK BACK) something fun(STEP BY STEP) I want (KEEP WISHING) to see you smile.

You're doing just fine. Just be patient with it all.
I'll enfold you in this love

Once again WE WILL MAKE YOU SMILE smile
once you've wiped the tears you've cried until today, the flower of courage will bloom
That's right. Just for you. So that it will reach you no matter how far away you are.
No matter how far, no matter how far.

We're are you right now? What are you doing? I can hear you.

Have courage. WE'RE WITH YOU. WE LOVE YOU

Can you hear this? WE WILL MAKE YOU SMILE Smile,
and as you gradually collect all these kindnesses, look, the flower of courage will bloom.
That's right. Just for you. We'll make the flower (smiles) bloom so that they reach you
no matter how far away you are


NOTE: in the first instance, the word for 'smile' is sung as 'flower'.


Translation for SILENCE )

w-inds - 'Be As One'

Woe woe woe
You're in my heart all the time, even on days we can't see each other, Every time I feel
Ah, enclosed in the palm of your warm palm is my heart and soul
They're right here, and not going anywhere

Every time I come across your casual kindnesses, it makes me want to embrace all of it

I will be as one I want to protect you
stay with me I love you. yes you, my beloved
So I'll tell you all of these overflowing emotions, without hiding anything
This kind of miracle only comes once
Like the stars shine together, like the raindrops eventually fall into the sea
Let's build this love together, You're my everything

We'll be able to confide in each other, never cry, even through slight misunderstands
Ah, Come here and tell me about the dreams you have and the rest of that book you were reading, Say

Our bond gets strong every time we learn something we didn't know about each other yet, so

Now, Be As One I want to believe
that we have a love that will never fade
Let's carve ourselves a destiny we won't regret through the flow of time
Every time we hold hands, we feel each other's warmth, we gaze at each other, I feel such peace Because I realized that - only shine - it's forever

Interspersing spring and summer, fall and winter with so hundreds of smiles
Let's tell the one story in the world

I will be as one I want protect you 
stay with me I love you so much... 
So I'll tell you all of these overflowing emotions, without hiding anything Ah・・・ wow・・・

Now, Be As One I want to believe
that we have a love that will never fade
Let's carve ourselves a destiny we won't regret through the flow of time
Every time we hold hands, we feel each other's warmth, we gaze at each other, I feel such peace Because I realized that - only shine - it's forever

I can't help think that 'Torture' is about the whole thing with PSC. Also, when I loaded my copy into itunes, it lists 'Revenge' as S.M.F.B

Torture is all in English except for the bolded lines.


TORTURE

3,2,1,Dead

I'm singin' here to get rid of fear.
Hope it disappears right here with the rain.
But I know life is pain. not like a fairy tale.
Meaningless to pray, just goin' on my way.

This endless pain and this unbearable anger and irritation
Bleedin' from my eyes cuz of a pack of lies
that binds up my mind so that I can't escape.

Hey GOD, can you feel the pain you give to me?
Kill me heavenly before I awake.
Why you torture me? just hatin' me?
Even if it's destiny, I don't run away.

No one wants to see an empty fairytale
with an ending without dreams or hope

I don't wanna see
I don't wanna see anymore.


REVENGE

I can't more forward, I can't go back, nothing but ideals, going nowhere
Damned if I go, damned if I don't
If I gotta do this then I'm gonna die pitching forward*

NO WAY OUT.

I haven't lost. I haven't lost. That's what I tell my reflection in the mirror
I'm gonna grab the shirtfront of that sun who glares fierce and glittering down on me

At some point my regrets have become my footprints
And I've had to swallow my sorrow

I'm gonna fall over and over
and over and over, I'm gonna fly

"If your dream ain't gonna come true then just don't dream it."

I get it
I get that, but I just don't get it.

I'll put a cover on my impatient heart
And until this trembling voice gets worn out,
I'm gonna scream over and over

Until that dream dries out
I don't care how many times I fall

Because I can fly just as many times



* This is a paraphrasing of the motto of Sakamoto Ryoma, the famous samurai, "If you are a man, even if you die in a ditch during battle, you will die pitching forward." It means that you should always be positive and move forward no matter what.

The lyrics for the new songs on Ayu's new album, Rock N' Roll Circus...

under )

This is the only one I'm leaving out of the cut, because I thought it was so moving, and it made me tear up...

Red line ~for TA~

We changed our tears into one single wish
And the miracle we saw on that day in that moment
was not an illusion

But it's a little sad, the way it gets swept away by the everyday

*Try and remember, if you feel despair
That this day today that you're trying to give up
is the tomorrow that someone somewhere didn't want to give up
And that I am holding your hand, so, so tight

By doing so, I want to accept with dignity
That the sun will rise again

Please don't be scare to take the first step

**Try and remember, when you run into a wall
That this day today when you think you may lose
is the tomorrow on which someone somewhere wanted to fight
And that I am holding your hand, so, so tight
And that no matter how far away we are, our hands are connected

*repeat

** repeat

# 'TA' stands for 'Team Ayu', AKA Ayu's fanclub/fans.

SURVIVE

music/lyrics by MIYAVI



Hello the world.

I'm gonna bite you I'll bite u Don't look away
Who the fxxk saying that I don't got fangs anymore?
If it's for the sake of what I need to protect I can be back at ZERO
Over and over Like a wolf I'll keep on crawling up

I'm still starvin'
I'm the Wolf survivin' with Love


Take a look Look around u Notice anything?
It don't pay to be honest to a fault
All your pride, it's ain't got NO meaning what so ever
That shit Throw it away Just throw it in the gutter
Can you hear me? I'm screamin' out from Tokyo
Covered with wounds, I'm singing Peace and Love ROCK ON
Love and lust and emotion, and this time, all of that, everything
Yeah, Imma gonna Break 'em all  I'll slash through it all

This is The way a Wolf survives with Love.





t/n: 1)italicized parts are originally in English
2) There's a Japanese proverb 'Shojikimono ga baka wo miru', which is the equivalent of 'Honesty doesn't pay'. What Miyavi says here is basically just a roughed up version of that.

My not so good translation of that song from the Mozart Rock Opera.

THE GOOD THAT DOES BAD

But from whence comes
this strange emotion
which fascinates me
even as it disturbs me
stabbed by beauty, I tremble
It's as though
there's a knife in my soul
The wound crosses my heart
And the pain gives me joy
Intoxicated by the poison
I lose my reason

[Refrain]:
It's the good that does bad
When you love
It all seems normal
Your hatred
Take pleasure
It's so good to suffer
succumb to the charms
give your tears

It's the good that does bad
(that does bad)
When you love
It's an everyday occurrence
(this good that does bad)
Your pain
The true delights
pass through the torture
Lower your weapons
Give your tears
I feel
violent instincts
I have the impression
of slipping towards the bottom
If I am unaware
of where this bane comes from
I adore
to have it in my skin
bewitched by mad ideas
All of a sudden
My wants fly off
The desire has become my prison
where I lose my reason

[Refrain]

I feel
violent instincts
I have the impression
of slipping towards the bottom

The new songs from w-ind's new album 'Another World'. It's good album.

My thoughts on these lyrics: 1) I dare you to find another song (especially a J-pop song) that name drops Veuve Clicquot... LOL
And 2) holy crap is 'Living in the red' the most depressing song ever... No, 'Spiral' might just beat it.
Please remember this is a singing dancing boy band...why so depressing? LOL

Swept along by the crowd of people, each one like a copy of everyone else
I wander the city, searching for a place where I belong, even though I know there's no answer...

Maybe
Nothing will change like this
It's my dream
I lose sight of it just a little

Burnt into my eyes is a frozen, colorless world
I won't let myself be buried in a place like this
"I'll turn my tears to strength"

Are U Ready?
No one can decide the beginning
Don't think, Just feeling
Be true to what you feel, start moving now
Startin'
I'll flood this colorless sky with light
If you say "I can't find the answer"
Then just create an answer for yourself

I believe in myself

I've spun the roulette to decide my destination by myself
I left the key to open the door to the future

Maybe
I'll just get lost this way
It's my pain
Say good bye to the past

In this monochrome world, there's no way your heart can have any color
I know I can change everything
"I'll be myself"

Are U Ready?
The signal changes, our visions have been formatted
Don't think, just feelin'
If you believe, you can change now
Startin'
I'll gaze into the sky and envision my future there
"It'll be okay." You're not alone
Someday you'll be able to smile...

I believe in myself

Burnt into my eyes is a frozen, colorless world
I won't let myself be buried in a place like this
"I'll turn my tears to strength"

Are U Ready?
No one can decide the beginning
Don't think, Just feeling
Be true to what you feel, start moving now
Startin'
I'll flood this colorless sky with light
If you say "I can't find the answer"
Then just create an answer for yourself

I believe in myself

EXILE may have enough members to incorporate their own village, but they do make good music. (although...can't Atsushi and Takahiro just be a singing duo? Do they really did 12 people dancing around them???)

I am so obsessed with this song right now. (I'm not posting the music video, because the song is the ending theme song for Tokyo Dogs, and while the video made to tie in with the Tokyo Dogs series is fun, it also distracts from the song a lot, what with all the high speed car chases and what not.)



Futatsu no Kuchibiru (Two Lips)

It's only when I'm with you that I'm my true self
It was my heart that stripped off its clothes
All we need is our two lips, let's talk without words

No one can chose the star they are born under
But you and I met here and now
I'll fill the time that passed until we met with my kiss
Your Lips

If we could measure our feelings by how tightly we embrace
I know the two of us would be more than lovers
It's a miracle that we met in this maze-like city
Let's scream together without making a sound

The earth spins when our lips meet
The moonglow follows us

Enveloped in the curtains of the night, we fumblingly exchange love
I'll stroke your eyelids and put a spell on you
Is my passion reaching you?
Let's kiss softly and light a fire

Hurting each other as we make sure of our passion
Exchanging smiles we cool the fever of our hearts
There's nothing I want to hide, I just want to protect you
Because we found this love in the darkness

A sudden rain wets my cheeks
Apart from you I think of you alone
It's the time we can't see each other that decides the shape of our love
So don't blame yourself like that
Lift your downcast face
Because a smile suits you so much more than tears

Carrying a sweet secret no one else knows
We'll search for a view no one else can see

If we could measure our feelings by how tightly we embrace
I know the two of us would be more than lovers
It's a miracle that we met in this maze-like city
Let's scream together without making a sound
Our two lips shine in the dark
