HEDORO

Romaji and English translation of the song ヘドロ (HEDORO) from the album DIVISION 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.

SLUDGE: Translation

Product of the necessary evil

In an exhibition of suspended fragments
White and black are mixing together
Frolicking with grey, the third party
With just a hint of sweet, sweet chaos
It’s a deep-seated necessary evil

The paradox of supply and demand
Is that it’s a deep-seated necessary evil
As if lies could somehow be converted into truth

That sort of reality seems a bit pathetic
[But you’re] jumping for joy

Stealth flows like milk:
That full-flavored truth
With just the slightest aroma of risk
If you mix it all together, distrust will fade away

[It’s a deep-seated necessary evil
The paradox of supply and demand
Is that it’s a deep-seated necessary evil
As if lies could somehow be converted into truth]

That sort of reality seems a bit pathetic
[Ooh yeah]
If you were to close your own eyes and look through someone else’s you’d still be laughing
Because you see, that’s just the way things are

The arguments that won’t hold water and endlessly drip
Tonight will finally run dry in despair
In the land of the dead
Carried by a half-frantic rhythm
If those arguments that won’t hold water and endlessly drip
Can’t recover
Then they’ll fall to ruin
Like an ignorant child

[Product of the necessary evil…]

Before we realized what’s happening, our morals have become twisted and skewed
And this paradise looked just like hell instead
If we were to accept the taboo and strip away restrictions,
Heaven and earth would be transformed, wouldn’t they?

[That sort of reality seems a bit pathetic
Ooh yeah
If you were to close your own eyes and look through someone else’s you’d still be laughing
Because you see, that’s just the way things are]

[The arguments that won’t hold water and endlessly drip
Tonight will finally run dry in despair
In the land of the dead
Carried by a half-frantic rhythm
If those arguments that won’t hold water and endlessly drip
Can’t recover
Then they’ll fall to ruin
Like an ignorant child]
