REQUIRED MALFUNCTION

Romaji and English translation of the song REQUIRED MALFUNCTION from the album DIVISION 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.

REQUIRED MALFUNCTION: Romaji

The possibility that I make a mistake
You go mad in this strong possibility
My word and deed

It has been input into your brain
After malfunction
Inevitable bugs

Discomfort of the waking
And dizziness
The possibility that I make a mistake
Predictable…
2 minutes later…
After malfunction
Inevitable bugs

You are my [instability]
I’m your enormous virus
Sometimes freeze without mixing
Repeated contact damage

But…There is not the hatred here
Flip side of affection
Gentle deadfall
All is honeytrap

Now,dive into the hill of repose

The scenery which you wish for
In the other side of this dream
To the world where nobody is
Falling while embraced you
Deeply

[The scenery which you wish for
In the other side of this dream
To the world where nobody is
Falling while embraced you
Deeply]

Itsuwari naki sono mujaki sa ni
Kegare naki uta o okurou
Sono kizu o nomikomu you ni
Saa me o hiraite goran
Kodoku no kachi ga saite iru

You are my [instability]
I’m your enormous virus
Sometimes freeze without mixing
Repeated contact damage

But…There is not the hatred here
Flip side of affection
Gentle deadfall
All is honeytrap

[Instability] that you gave

Because you are always here, I can advance before

The scenery which you wish for
In the other side of this dream
To the world where nobody is
Falling while embraced you
Deeply

[The scenery which you wish for
In the other side of this dream
To the world where nobody is
Falling while embraced you
Deeply]

To the world where nobody is…
Falling while embraced you
Deeply
Because you are always here, I can advance before

Let’s Dive

Let’s send an unblemished song
To that guileless innocence
So you can understand your weakness
Now open your eyes and look
The benefit of loneliness is blooming
