OGRE

Romaji and English translation of the song OGRE from the album DIM 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.

OGRE: Romaji

Jiga houkai ranyou kakusei fuyuu sakuran Abuse
Sougai ji heiken oyokujou kiben jii seiteku Abuse
Ogre play
God is not a humanist

Rinbu hakuri kodoku utsu     kagai shisou     jakusha no mure

God is not a humanist]

Ogre play
God is a beast
God is a liar
You make money by faith

OGRE: Translation

Crumbling ego, stirring violence, billowing uncertainty, Abuse
Social outcast, vile urges, dishonesty, sex and masturbation, Abuse
Ogre play
God is not a humanist

I-n-f-e-c-t-i-o-n

Love and hate; silence; rejection; separation; an unchosen, weak child; abandoned and isolated
Dancing madly, separation, isolation, depression     violent thoughts     the weak teeming masses

God is a beast
God is a liar
You make money by faith
