THE MURDER’S TV

Romaji of the song THE MURDER’S TV from the EP Hankou semeibun by the GazettE.

Well, not really romaji because the whole song is already in English, but there are some comments and possible explanations on the lyrics in there as well.

Translator's Notes
  • Lyrics originally sung in English are in italics in the translation.
  • Words or phrases I felt were implied are in [brackets].
  • 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.
  • 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.

  1. “Spicy” – this is how it’s spelled in the lyrics.
  2. From the 1976 horror movie The Omen (and 2006 remake of the same name), about a kid who is the Antichrist. Damien (as his name is spelled in the movie) is creepy and evil and people tend to have gruesome accidents/die in various horrifying ways when they cross his path.  Ruki also references Damien/this movie in the song No.[666].
  3. “Influence” – this is how it’s spelled in the lyrics.
  4. A gibbet is another name for gallows, where someone is hanged.
