If you’d like to read more about Grand Guignol, the horror theatre this song is inspired by, the BBC has published an in-depth article on it.


いつか見た グランギニョル
昏く薄汚れた小さな劇場で
滑稽に 務む様
憂さったい脚本 まばらな手拍子と

itsuka mita guran ginyoru
kuraku usuyogoreta chiisana gekijou de
kokkei ni tsutomu sama
usattai kyakuhon mabara na tebyoushi to

I once saw Grand Guignol
at a small, dark, dirty theatre.
I saw their comical way of working—
That melancholy script, that thin clapping to the beat.

ああ大衆芝居と大衆外人生
英雄願望と踊れ
只、代償次第と足元を見た
僕は”役”が欲しかった

aa taishuu shibai to taishuugai jinsei
eiyuu ganbou to odore
tada, daishou shidai to ashimoto o mita
boku wa “yaku” ga hoshikatta

Ah, a play for the masses and a life outside the masses.
Dance, longing to be a hero!
I just sized them up depending on what they’d pay.
I wanted a role to play.

台詞無い主役を生きるなら
いっそマーダーサーカスで血の雨と
ニヒリズムの喜劇をご覧あれ
ほうら、お前が欲しがっていたものだ

serifu nai shuyaku o ikiru nara
isso maadaa saakasu de chi no ame to
nihirizumu no kigeki o goran are
houra, omae ga hoshigatte ita mono da

If I’m living the life of a wordless leading role
then I’d rather it be with a rain of blood at a murder circus.
Watch this nihilistic comedy.
See, this is what you wanted.

下らない緞帳の幕間
じっとマーダーサーカスの道化師は
照らすスポット また一人殺した
俗な脚本だろう 笑え悪魔

kudaranai donchou no makuai
jitto maadaa saakasu no doukeshi wa
terasu supotto mata hitori koroshita
zoku na kyakuhon darou warae akuma

The curtains drop for a worthless intermission.
The clown from the murder circus stands still
and the spotlight illuminates them. They killed another.
What a vulgar script. Laugh, demon!

いつか見た グランギニョル
生臭い血糊でてらてら笑う
さも愉悦こそ ここにあり
ああ揶揄する群衆 暗示に沈む君

itsuka mita guran ginyoru
namagusai chinori de teratera warau
samo yuetsu koso koko ni ari
aa yayu suru gunshuu anji ni shizumu kimi

I once saw Grand Guignol.
In a sea of pungent blood, they smiled a gleaming smile.
True joy lies here.
Ah, the crowd banters and you sink into suggestion.

さあ腐敗臭肴に売春婦ララバイ
啓蒙男爵は去んだ
まだ太閤芝居と指矩を見た
僕は”藥”が欲しかった

saa fuhaishuu sakana ni baishunpu rarabai
keimou danshaku wa inda
mada taikou shibai to sashigane o mita
boku wa “yaku” ga hoshikatta

So, a prostitute’s lullaby is the rotten-smelling appetiser.
The enlightened baron went home.
I was still watching the taiko play and the carpenter’s square.
I wanted a role to play.

肥大した自己の成れの果て
おいでマーダーサーカスの井の中へ
ニヒリズムの喜劇をご覧あれ
そうだ 誰もがリングの上だ

hidai shita jiko no nare no hate
oide maadaa saakasu no i no naka e
nihirizumu no kigeki o goran are              
sou da dare mo ga ringu no ue da

This is the ruin of my swollen sense of self.
Come inside the murder circus’ well…
Observe this nihilistic comedy.
That’s right—everyone’s atop the ring.

場違いな笑顔とカーテンコール
一歩マーダーサーカスの道化師を
照らすスポット また一人殺した
空いた役を埋めろ 笑う悪魔

bachigai na egao to kaaten kooru
ippo maadaa saakasu no doukeshi o
terasu supotto mata hitori koroshita
aita yaku o umero warau akuma

Taking a curtain call with an inappropriate smile
the clown of the murder circus took a step forward.
The spotlight illuminated them. They killed another.
Fill the open part, smiling demon!

生の高利貸し 思考を払って
息を吸う事は只だから
生の高利貸し 思考を払って
楽になれ

sei no kourigashi shikou o haratte
iki o suu koto wa tada dakara
sei no kourigashi shikou o haratte
raku ni nare

Pay life’s loanshark with thoughts
because breathing in is free.
Pay life’s loanshark with thoughts
and be at ease.

生の高利貸し 思考を払って
息を吐く事は只ですか?
生の高利貸し 思考を払って
誰かの耳打ちで

sei no kourigashi shikou o haratte
iki o haku koto wa tada desu ka?
sei no kourigashi shikou o haratte
dareka no mimiuchi de

Pay life’s loanshark with thoughts
but is exhaling free?
Pay life’s loanshark with thoughts
and whisper in someone’s ear.

台詞無い主役を生きるなら
いっそマーダーサーカスで血の雨と
ニヒリズムの喜劇をご覧あれ
ほうら、お前が欲しがっていたものだ

serifu nai shuyaku o ikiru nara
isso maadaa saakasu de chi no ame to
nihirizumu no kigeki o goran are
houra, omae ga hoshigatte ita mono da

If I’m living the life of a wordless leading role
then I’d rather it be with a rain of blood at a murder circus.
Watch this nihilistic comedy.
See, this is what you wanted.

場違いな笑顔とカーテンコール
一歩マーダーサーカスの道化師を
照らすスポット また一人殺した
空いた役を埋めろ 笑う悪魔
これでいいんだろう 笑え悪魔

bachigai na egao to kaaten kooru
ippo maadaa saakasu no doukeshi o
terasu supotto mata hitori koroshita
aita yaku o umero warau akuma
kore de iin darou warae akuma

Taking a curtain call with an inappropriate smile
the clown of the murder circus took a step forward.
The spotlight illuminated them. They killed another.
Fill the open part, smiling demon!
This is fine. Smile, demon!
