English Song Translations

All songs were romajized and/or translated by Rebecca/hanak0toba. 

Some of the translations were originally from my old LiveJournal, DistorteDaytime, over 10 years ago; I may or may not redo some of them in the future since I feel like I’ve gotten a lot better since then.  When I redo the translations, I’ll note that they’ve been updated.

If you’re interested in using my translations somewhere (captioning a video, etc.), please ask/let me know first and credit the source by linking back here.

Please don’t re-post my translations to other lyrics sites/databases.

All songs they have released thus far have been romajized and translated.

Whenever a new release happens, I’m planning on doing those songs as well, and I may even go back and re-translate some of the songs I originally did ten years or so ago.  If you want to be alerted when that happens, feel free to subscribe.  I have since started adding news and other updates about the band to the site; feel free to check them out under News & Reports and Interviews.

Finally, I’m still learning and am NOT fluent in Japanese, so I’m sure there are errors. Apologies in advance!

  • Songs with a [t] after them have been translated into English.  (This does not include songs that were originally written entirely in English by Ruki; those songs are linked under the release on which they appeared.)
  • Songs with a [p] also include an embedded official PV/music video.  I’ve tried to obtain PVs from their official YouTube channel when possible and add subtitles to them; when I couldn’t, I just found the best-quality version available, so some are better than others.  Please note that in some cases, the PV may be for one version of the song and the lyrics for another, specifically where the TRACES VOL.2 songs are concerned.
  • Songs with an [x] contain explicit English lyrics (more on that below.)

NOTE: Some songs have been tagged as containing #explicit-lyrics; Ruki loves to use English (aka “Engrish;” LOL, love you Ruki) in his lyrics, and he seems to be quite fond of “colorful language” in particular.  I can’t fault him for that because I’ve been known to let fly on occasion (though I admit I’ve never called someone a “skanky waster,” but that’s beside the point).  Basically, anything with curse words in English or explicit/implied sexual- or drug-related content got this tag.  If I tagged it because of suggested stuff, but there’s nothing overtly explicit, I tried to note it as well.

These songs are indicated with an [x] on this page.

(Side note, I do sometimes swear in my translator notes – when warranted, such as part of a phrase or explanation; not usually gratuitously – but I limit it to songs that already have the explicit tag.  I censor words in my notes as necessary on non-explicit posts.)

 

All songs are listed below in alphabetical order.  Their entire discography as of the release of NINTH has been translated.  Barring any new releases, this should be completely up to date to the best of my knowledge.  These are songs I have translated, NOT songs that were originally written entirely in English.
