I included a translation note for the choruses, but I feel like a big focus of this song is how the different words sound rather than their actual meaning. Like always, this presents some interesting translation challenges…


歌詞

滅せい 滅せい
擬 欺 嘘 邪
高慢ちき 千鬼

Translation

Destroy, destroy
shams, frauds, lies and evil.
In a single stroke
cut down a thousand arrogant demons
and the shameless fools,
the foolish bastards and foolish small fry
and the fallen idiots.
Beat it, you fools!

The mole crickets
and worms
are cackling away.
My stomach hurts from laughing! What a masterpiece.

Those smart aleck oafs keep running their mouths. They’re so noisy!
They’re utterly false good-for-nothings.
An empty vessel makes the most noise.

The mole crickets and worms
are cackling away.
You shameless bastards. Drop dead all at once!

Those fools, fools, fools, fools, fools, fools
fools, fools!

What the hell are you saying?
What are you saying?
You blockhead!
Pay your respects to me.

Oh,
is it shaka? Calamity? Fire?
Shaka? A mosquito? An eggplant?
Shaka? A flower? Fragrance?
Shaka? Him? (1)

Is it Shaka? A song? Something good?
Shaka? Effort? Treasure?
Shaka? Celebration? Study?
Shaka? Hahaha.

Oh!
Ah,
splat, splat.
Oh!
Ah,
splat.
Oh!
Ah,
splat, splat.
Oh!
Ah,
splat.

All creation gathers disorderly.

Blazing, karma, jail, dull, fool, waste, sin, scumbag.
Abuse.
Only fools are gluttons.

~An amazing guitar solo~

The mole crickets and worms
are cackling away.
They’re so rude.
Drop dead!

That fool, fool, fool, fool, fool,
fool, fool, fool!
What the hell are you saying?
What are you saying?
You blockhead,
pay your respects to me.

is it shaka? Calamity? Fire?
Shaka? A mosquito? An eggplant?
Shaka? A flower? Fragrance?
Shaka? Him?

Is it Shaka? A song? Something good?
Shaka? Effort? Treasure?
Shaka? Celebration? Study?
Shaka? Below?

Is it Shaka? A husk? A lance?
Shaka? Fruit? Flowers?
Shaka? Value? A gamble?
Shaka? Fruit?

Is it shaka? The sun? A bride?
Shaka? Something fake? Something strict?
Shaka? A widow? Something extra?
Shaka? Hahaha.

Oh!
Ah,
splat, splat.
Oh!
Ah,
splat.
Oh!
Ah,
splat, splat.
Oh!
Ah,
splat.
Oh!
Ah,
splat, splat.
Oh!
Ah,
splat.
Oh!
Ah,
splat, splat.
Oh!
Ah,
splat.

All creation gathers disorderly.

Blazing, karma, jail, dull, fool, waste, sin, scumbag.
False charges, silk, intoxication, chaos, transformation, sutra, logic, bass.
Laziness, punishment, errors, something bad, impurity, sleep, play, a low bow.
Abuse.
Don’t show your face here again!


Translator’s note

(1) It’s likely that the focus of the choruses is on the repeated ‘ka’ sounds, rather than the meaning of the individual words.

    Wow, thank you so much for this translation!
    As expected, it’s incredibly weird, but in a way that’s what I love about SLAVE.V-V-R the most. I agree with your stance regarding the chorus, especially looking at this artist’s earlier works, where one of them even took that concept to the extreme! (Lyrics being just random kanji arranged in a way to sound like Engrish.) Overall, I’ll be looking forward to when requests open next year, perhaps with another SLAVE.V-V-R song… Though he seems to include his own translations in his recent works (yet this one had none).
    That being said, I’m really grateful for all your work. Keep it up!

      You’re welcome! I’m not surprised to hear that SLAVE.V-V-R has another song that features strings of kanji that sound like English. I’m definitely interested in looking at more of their lyrics – they’re difficult but the challenge just makes me want to get better to do them justice
