PARALYSIS

Romaji and English translation of the song PARALYSIS from the album DOGMA 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.

PARALYSIS: Romaji

Die and restart

Honnou no mama karamari dashita kanjou ga
Wakaranai kurai itai
I can’t know it

Hide out
Lies are stacking up
Itazura ni kazatta no wa
Sonzaishinai kuuhaku

Tozasu kokoro     yowaki jibun no shoi

Sekibaku ni umaru     watashi no seimei
Hakidaseba     mata kodoku ni kaette shimau

Distress
Habikoru utagai bukaki ai wo kai nanika ni oboreta
Genwaku ni chiru subete     nano ni naze ka kokoro wa mita sarete ita kara
Maushita kankaku ni kitzuku kotosura dekizu genjitsu wa uwano sora
I can’t know it
My fate

Creepy the past inside me
Houmuru youni
The facts inside me
Nidoto kaeranai
Past…Buried…Forever
[Before I die]
Am I so clever?
[Until I die]
Past…Buried…Forever
Mou mienai?

Tsumi agete yoku no kagiri     ai wo kouyouni
Ikitsuku saki mienakute

Creepy the past inside me
Houmuru youni
Past…Buried…Forever
[Before I die]
Am I so clever?
[Until I die]

Habikoru utagai bukaki ai wo kai nanika ni oboreta
Genwaku ni chiru subete     nano ni naze ka kokoro wa mitasarete ita kara…

Die and restart


PARALYSIS: Translation

Die and restart

These feelings that became entangled out of instinct
Hurt more than I can even comprehend
I can’t know it

Hide out
Lies are stacking up
There’s no blank space left
It’s all been bedecked with tricks

I close off my heart     because of my own weakness

My life     is buried in loneliness
[Even if] I try to throw it all up     the loneliness always keeps coming back again

Distress
I bought into that powerful, dubious love, and nearly drowned in it
Everything dissolved into that illusion     but nevertheless, for some reason, my heart was at ease
I didn’t even realize that my emotions had become paralyzed, or that this reality is insubstantial
I can’t know it
My fate

Creepy the past inside me
I want to bury it
The facts inside me
Once more so it won’t ever come back
Past…Buried…Forever
[Before I die]
Am I so clever?
[Until I die]
Past…Buried…Forever
Can you still see it?

My built-up desires have reached their limit     as if just begging to be loved
But I can’t see how that will ever happen

Creepy the past inside me
I want to bury it
Past…Buried…Forever
[Before I die]
Am I so clever?
[Until I die]

I bought into that powerful, dubious love, and nearly drowned in it
Everything dissolved into that illusion     but nevertheless, for some reason, my heart was at ease…

Die and restart
