UGLY

Romaji and English translation of the song UGLY from the single UGLY 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.

UGLY: Romaji

Play in the circle
Come pay for your filthiness
The bloody scaffold and bitch

Please die…Before I die
Kyogi to usobuku me

Evil fame
Inside SHAAPU1 2
Kanzen ni yuganda Insane

Death to Traitors
Scaffold and bitch
Zouo narase okashita kazu dake
Death to Traitors
Scaffold and bitch
Boukyaku negau Crime

Kono itami wa todokanai
Uso to ikiru kimi he
Nemurenu ore no soba de
Are you still alive?

Play in the circle
Come pay for your filthiness
The bloody scaffold and bitch

Please die…Before I die
Kyogi to usobuku me

Boukyaku negau Crime


UGLY: Translation

Play in the circle
Come pay for your filthiness
The bloody scaffold and bitch

Please die…Before I die
Lies and boastful eyes

Evil fame
Inside SHARP 2
It’s completely distorted and Insane

 Death to Traitors
Scaffold and bitch
Hatred ringing out,  violated, nothing but a number
Death to Traitors
Scaffold and bitch
Forgetting to beg [is a] Crime

This pain doesn’t reach you
You, living with lies
You can’t sleep beside me
Are you still alive

Play in the circle
Come pay for your filthiness
The bloody scaffold and bitch

Please die…Before I die
Lies and boastful eyes

Evil fame
Inside SHARP 2
It’s completely distorted and Insane

FUCK
Traitors
Scaffold and bitch
Hatred ringing out,  violated, nothing but a number
Death to Traitors
Scaffold and bitch
Forgetting to beg [is a] Crime

Lies will always come tumbling down
You are ugly and falling apart
Even now you stand at the edge of the death’s abyss

Are you still alive

Death to Traitors
Scaffold and bitch
Hatred ringing out,  violated, nothing but a number
Death to Traitors
Scaffold and bitch
Forgetting to beg [is a] Crime


  1. I am like 99% sure he pronounces the hashtag/number/pound – # – symbol as “sharp” (which is a similar-looking symbol, but not the same thing; the sharp –  – is only used in music notation to indicate higher pitch by a half-step). The line in the original lyrics is “Inside # 2.”
