CHIGIRE

Romaji and English translation of the song チギレ (CHIGIRE) from the special release CHIGIRE by the GazettE.

Translator's Notes
  • Lyrics originally sung in English are in italics , and words or phrases I felt were implied are in [brackets] in the translation.
  • I also (usually) put repeats of chorus/verses/stanzas in [brackets] if they’re not written that way in the original lyrics for ease of singing along.
  • If he writes a word in the lyrics but doesn’t sing it, I put it in light grey to make it easier to skip when singing along.
  • I usually romajize katakana characters in CAPITALS, and keep punctuation and line spacing as close to the original booklet as possible. If you see me putting spaces before punctuation at the end of a sentence or writing things in mixed-case capitals, that’s because it’s how it was in the booklet.
  • Any comments I had during the romajization/translation process will be included as footnotes so as not to disturb the flow of the song. They’re not required reading, but Ruki does some pretty nifty things with his lyrics/kanji choices, or sometimes there’s further explanations about words or phrases in there.

CHIGIRE: Romaji

Daremo inai     utsubuse no asu     koritsu no hifu
Saa ore kara     subete wo ubai     koroshite kure saa

Nani wo [nani wo] shinji [shinji] nani wo utagaette iundai [iundai]?
Sonna [sonna] yugamu seiron wo sarashite
Koko wa [koko wa] mienu [mienu] bouryoku teki
 Educatinal hut
Kane wo [kane wo] makiageru [makiageru] nani wo uetsukeru?

Dareka dareka dareka dareka dareka
Ore ga ikiru imi wo oshiete kure
Dareka dareka dareka dareka dareka…
Ore ni rikai sha nado sonzai shinai

[Unda kizuguchi  mienai koe  sogai no hifu
Saa nokosazu     [kono] ore wo kui tsukushite kure]

[Dareka dareka dareka dareka dareka
Ore ga ikiru imi wo oshiete kure
Dareka dareka dareka dareka dareka…
Ore ni rikai sha nado
Dareka dareka dareka dareka dareka
Ore ga ikiru imi wo oshiete kure
Dareka dareka dareka dareka dareka…
Ore ni rikai sha nado sonzai shinai]

Tasuke motomereba daremo ga mukankei to
Tanin no furisa     wakatte ita sa
Yowane sae kuchi ni dasenai
Sugari yoreba mata uragirareru
Dakara mou kokoro naki kotoba,     nasake nado iranai

Nani mo nakunatta     ikiru kutsuu     potsuntto nokotta
Mou sakebi wa kadan ni sotto umete okure

Dare mo inai     utsubuse no asu     koritsu no hifu
Saa ore kara     subete wo ubai     koroshite kure saa


Tear Me Apart: Translation

No one’s left     in a tomorrow turned upside-down     [I’m wrapped in] this skin of isolation
Since you     took everything away from me     then     please just kill me

What do [what do] you believe [you believe]? Do you doubt what I said [said]?
Just like that [just like that], the distorted sounds became clear
From this place [from this place] you can’t see [you can’t see] that violent Educatinal1 hut
What happens2 if their money [if their money] is taken away [taken away]?

Somebody somebody somebody somebody somebody
Please teach me the meaning of life
Somebody somebody somebody somebody somebody…
Because I’m the kind of person who thinks that we don’t really exist

Your voice is nowhere to be found     this wound festers     [I’m wrapped in] this neglected skin
So please don’t leave me;     I’m being consumed

[Somebody somebody somebody somebody somebody
Please teach me the meaning of life
Somebody somebody somebody somebody somebody…
Because I’m the kind of person who thinks
Somebody somebody somebody somebody somebody
Please teach me the meaning of life
Somebody somebody somebody somebody somebody…
Because I’m the kind of person who thinks that we don’t really exist]

Should I ask someone else for help?
Even I understand the     disadvantage of [involving] an outsider
These complaints can’t even be put into words
Should I still rely on you even as you betray me?
But even more than your heartless words,     I don’t need your sympathy

I had nothing,     living in agony,     remaining isolated
Now I cry out as I fall behind; slowly buried [alive] in this flower bed

No one’s left     in a tomorrow turned upside-down     [I’m wrapped in] this skin of isolation
Since you     took everything away from me     then     please just kill me


  1. I’m guessing this is supposed to be “educational”, but beyond that… The line makes me think of a not-so-nice place where some of life’s harsher realities were learned, but that’s just what I get from it; I don’t know if that’s what it’s actually referring to.
  2. The verb used is 植え付ける / uetsukeru which means “to plant,” so the sentence is literally “What is planted if their money is taken away.” I translated it with the feeling of “What would the result be…”
