LUCY

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

LUCY: Romaji

Yami ni miserare yoku no suni te wo hawashi

Etsuraku hitashi junnou na Vice
Hankyouran de no ta uchimawari
Koukatsu     douke     gu no kocchou ni nari hateru

Lucy
Zennou buru akuheki     sarake dasu
「Greed」「Lust」「Folly」「LIE」「Bluff」「Crime」
Over again
Me sorasazu
Eat me

Vital ability      tarinai soshitsu
Ko no te kara hagareta sore no MATERIARU
Kainaraseru mono nara kurete yaru

Yoku ni nomarete tsurikata wasureta kubi

Etsuraku hitashi junnou na Vice
Hankyouran de nota uchimawari
Koukatsu     douke     gu no kocchou ni nari hateru

Lucy
Ai dorei burasage     ou no michi
「Greed」「Lust」「Folly」「LIE」「Bluff」「Crime」
Over again
Tsugi wa azatoku
Lucy
Zennou buru akuheki     sarake dasu
「Greed」「Lust」「Folly」「LIE」「Bluff」「Crime」
Over again
Me sorasazu
Eat me

Nigemadou itooshiki Lucy


LUCY: Translation

Fascinated by the darkness, your hands scrabble in a hive of greed

Conformity steeped in pleasure:  Vice
Half-crazed and writhing
Your crafty     antics     are reaching heights of sheer stupidity

Lucy
Your vice masquerading as godliness     is [finally] exposed
「Greed」「Lust」「Folly」「LIE」「Bluff」「Crime」
Over again
Don’t look away
Eat me

Vital ability     your character is lacking
That material is ripped away from you just like that
If you could be tamed, I’d keep you

Swallowed up by your greed, you forgot you were being strangled

Conformity steeped in pleasure:  Vice
Half-crazed and writhing
Your crafty     antics     are reaching heights of sheer stupidity

Lucy
You’re hanging, a slave to love     on the King’s Highway
「Greed」「Lust」「Folly」「LIE」「Bluff」「Crime」
Over again
Aggression comes next
Lucy
Your vice masquerading as godliness     is [finally] exposed
「Greed」「Lust」「Folly」「LIE」「Bluff」「Crime」
Over again
Don’t look away
Eat me

You’re trying to flee, my dear Lucy
