DEVOURING ONE ANOTHER

Romaji and English translation of the song DEVOURING ONE ANOTHER from the album BEAUTIFUL DEFORMITY by the GazettE.

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.

You are next…

Devoid of emotion, instinct [took over] and you bared     your red jaws     with a ravenous glare
Hope is nonexistent    your very heartbeat devoured by fate
Everyone lives not knowing if “the future is their own”     and feeling as if this abyss of despair must be a dream
Who will be the victim of your endless cycle2 of ravenous hunger tonight?

Translator’s Notes:

  1. I’m fairly certain this is referring to the pupils changing shape from normal (circular) to being slitted/oval-shaped like an animal’s.
  2. He actually uses the word ループ RUUPU meaning “loop,” but “cycle” fit better in the translation.
