Romaji of the song DISCHARGE from the album NIL by the GazettE.

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

Just a side note: these lyrics were found on a Japanese-language lyric database that is usually pretty accurate, but I’ve since re-acquired scans of the booklet. In the booklet, this song does not appear to have official lyrics – there is some jibberish with heavy scribbling over it where the lyrics would be – so take them with a grain of salt.

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.
