IN THE MIDDLE OF CHAOS

Romaji of the song IN THE MIDDLE OF CHAOS from the album DIM by the GazettE.

Well, not really romaji because the whole song is already in English.

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.

IN THE MIDDLE OF CHAOS: Romaji

The little freedom which I know
All which I should keep
It may be lost someday
Anyone is the same
I stood in this stage and have noticed it
Am I who sings there truth?
It is wrong! I am here

Let’s deliver nonfiction
A song like misfortune pride
I vomit original pain
The only means to prove oneself

I have a beloved person and a family
Nothing is different from you
Look as one human being
I have a lot of hateful guys
Nothing is different from you
Look as one human being

Honor and position aren’t important
Do you remember it?
It becomes motherfucker

[Let’s deliver nonfiction
A song like misfortune pride
I vomit original pain
The only means to prove oneself]

The little freedom which I know
The dream which I should keep
It may be lost someday
Am I who sings there truth?
It is wrong! I am here
No one can be saved with lie

Let’s deliver nonfiction
A song like misfortune pride
I vomit original pain
To ascertain each other’s wound
Let’s deliver all of me
A song like misfortune pride
In the middle of chaos
The only means to prove oneself
