This song is apparently about the Prohibition and churches.

The first stanza is made up of two two-line fragments that use the same structure… but one should be interpreted as a long phrase, whereas the other is two shorter phrases. It’s the particles in the second line (に and を) that make all the difference.


世界に響く福音を
グラスに注げBlack&White
ショットと祈りで信仰を
ボトルを開けろBlack&White

sekai ni hibiku fukuin o
gurasu ni sosoge Black&White
shotto to inori de shinkou o
botoru o akero Black&White

Pour the gospel echoing through the world
into your glass. Black&White!
Practice your faith through shots and prayers.
Open the bottle. Black&White!

ようこそ来ましたこの教会
越えるべきじゃないその境界
覚悟ができたらグラスを準備

youkoso kimashita kono kyoukai
koerubeki ja nai sono kyoukai
kakugo ga dekitara gurasu o junbi

Welcome! You’ve arrived here, at a church.
That boundary shouldn’t be crossed over.
When you’re ready, prepare your glass!

感謝します

kansha shimasu

We give thanks.

ハイ!お導きまであと少し
40、50のキツめをチョイス
覚悟ができたら真っ逆さまで

hai! omichibiki made ato sukoshi
yonjuu, gojuu no kitsume o choisu
kakugo ga dekitara massakasama de

Yeah! There’s only a little while left until guidance.
You choose a 40 to 50-year-old stiff drink.
When you’re ready, go head over heels.

もう信者

mou shinja        

You’re a believer now.

陽が落ちて暗い気持ち
日和ったアナタはウォッカで
カーン!と1発入れれば
あれ?急患?w
召された信者は寝かせておこうか

hi ga ochite kurai kimochi
hiyotta anata wa wokka de
kaan! to ichi hatsu irereba
are? kyuukan? w
mesareta shinja wa nekasete okou ka

The sun sets and dark feelings surface.
You’re so non-committal. I give you some vodka and—
Clank! When you take a shot…
Hm? Suddenly sick? lol
Perhaps I should let the believers who’ve drunk rest.

感謝します

We give thanks.

貴方にも救いの手を
テキーラショットで火照ってきました
ジリジリと迫る高揚感
まだまだ次が控えていますよ

anata ni mo sukui no te o
tekiirashotto de hotette kimashita
jirijiri to semaru kouyoukan
madamada tsugi ga hikaete imasu yo

I’ll lend you a helping hand too.
You’ve gone all red from a tequila shot.
Exaltation approaches, little by little.
You’re not there yet. The next one’s waiting!

感謝します

We give thanks.
