日本語

断頭台さえ抱擁して 逃げた先に君が居たの
教会の裏で死んでった猫だってほら 笑っていた
この夏が終わったら何をしよう? 「終わらない」なんて言わないで
僕は君と会えただけで こんな風に赤くなって

あの日のことは知らないでいて
無知で居るから美しいんだ
僕のこと 君のこと 少しずつ洗い流そうか

生も命も殺してよ 丁も寧も要らないよ
君が僕を殺してよ その牙でさ その爪でさ ねえ
肯も定も殺してよ どうもこうも言ってみたって
君が僕を殺してよ その牙でさ その爪でさ
殺して

殺して

いつの日か僕のこの衝動も無くなると信じて
生きてきたよ どんな辛いことがさ あっても壊して土に埋めた
埋葬だってさ 豪華だね 僕なんてほら 形も無くて
そんな死に方がお似合いで そんな妄想を続けてる

それでも君は何で僕のことを殺さないの?
そんな君の優しいとこが 僕をいつもたたせるんだ

生も命も殺してよ 丁も寧も要らないよ
君が僕を殺さない その眼でさえ その毛でさえ ねえ
肯も定もしてくれて どうもこうも知ってみたって
君が僕を犯してよ その牙でさ その爪でさ
犯して

殺し殺され殺していく 犯し犯され犯し犯される
丘の上の小屋で羽ばたいた 君との夢 今ここで

壊そうよ

Translation

I embraced even the guillotine. I ran away and you were there.
See, even the cat dead behind the church was smiling.
Once summer ends, what shall we do? Don’t say it won’t end.
Just seeing you makes me so red.

Stay ignorant of the events of that day.
Your ignorance makes you beautiful.
Shall I rinse you and I, bit by bit?

Kill my life and fate. There’s no need for courtesies. (1)
Kill me with your fangs and claws. Hey…
Kill my affirmation and certainty, even if I tell you this or that.
Kill me with your fangs and claws.
Kill me.

Kill me.

I believed that, someday, my impulses would disappear.
I lived. No matter what difficulties transpired, I destroyed and buried them.
It’s a burial. How splendid. See, I’m formless.
That way of death suits you, so keep up your delusion.

And yet, why is it you don’t kill me?
Your kindness always raises me up.

Kill my life and fate. There’s no need for courtesies
You won’t kill me, even with your eyes or hair. Hey…
Kill my affirmation and certainty, whether I know this or that.
Violate me with your fangs and claws.
Violate me.

I kill, I’m killed, I’m going to kill. I violate, I’m violated, I violate, I’m violated.
I spread my wings in a cabin atop a hill. Right here, I’m going to destroy

my dream with you.


Translator’s notes

(1) This sets up a series of wordplay based on splitting some words up into their components. In order, they are: 生も命 (sei mo mei, joined together to make 生命, seimei, life); 丁も寧 (tei mo nei, joined together to make 丁寧, teinei, courtesy); and 肯も定 (kou mo tei, joined together to make 肯定, koutei, affirmation)

  1. Hello again, hope you’re doing well!

    I have a small question, are the lyrics you got official or mimicopied? I’m asking because during “少しずつ洗い流そうか”, I distinctly hear a “ね”, not a “か”…

    In any case, thank you for your translations!! They’re always nice to see, and really well done too!

    1. You’re welcome! I get the sense there must be some sort of underlying story, especially since we see similar images used time and time again… (i.e. religion, churches, cats)
