Onitsuka Chihiro, "Borderline" { kanji / romaji / translation }

Artist: 鬼束ちひろ (Onitsuka Chihiro)
Song Title: Borderline
Album: Sugar High
Track Number: 9
Released: 2002
Lyrics By: Onitsuka Chihiro

One of my (many) favorites by my favorite Japanese artist. Her lyrics are so intricate, they can be difficult to translate at times, but I think that's part of their charm and mystery.

Kanji Romaji English Translation
雑音が静けさに変わる瞬間を
絆が少しずつ欠ける惨劇を
切り裂けば楽になれた証拠を
どうか見逃さないで
置き去るのは過去だけでいい

FEEL ACROSS THE BORDERLINE
NOW YOU'RE SAVED AND YOU UNDERSTAND
さあ 神の指を舐めるの

貴方には低温な重さしか見えない
それなら秘密など共有出来ない
歯車が音を立てる時には
依存を自覚していて
掴んだその手を放して

FEEL ACROSS THE BORDERLINE
NOW YOU'RE SAVED AND YOU WAKE UP
さあ この運命を辿るの

奪うのが何を害すれば
世界は歪むのも惜しまずに
FEEL ACROSS THE BORDERLINE

シナリオも次第に変形を急ぐ
海底も明かりの漏れを思い出す
ざわめきと今手にした鍵で
自分が何を起こせる?
悲しみで炎も灯せる?

FEEL ACROSS THE BORDERLINE
NOW YOU'RE SAVED AND YOU UNDERSTAND
さあ 神の指を舐めるの

あらゆる毒がその呼吸(いき)を
潜めては攻め合いを求めてる
FEEL ACROSS THE BORDERLINE
zatsuon ga shizukesa ni kawaru shunkan o
kizuna ga sukoshi zutsu kakeru sangeki o
kirisakeba raku ni nareta shouko o
douka minogasanai de
oki saru no wa kako dake de ii

FEEL ACROSS THE BORDERLINE
NOW YOU'RE SAVED AND YOU UNDERSTAND
saa kami no yubi o nameru no

anata ni wa teion na omosa shika mienai
sorenara himitsu nado kyouyuu dekinai
haguruma ga oto o tateru toki ni wa
izon o jikaku shite ite
tsukan da sono te o hanashite

FEEL ACROSS THE BORDERLINE
NOW YOU'RE SAVED AND YOU WAKE UP
saa kono sadame o tadoru no

ubau no ga nani o gaisureba
sekai wa yugamu no mo oshimazu ni
FEEL ACROSS THE BORDERLINE

shinario mo shidaini henkei o isogu
kaitei mo akari no more o omoidasu
zawameki to ima te ni shita kagi de
jibun ga nani o okoseru?
kanashimi de honoo mo tomoseru?

FEEL ACROSS THE BORDERLINE
NOW YOU'RE SAVED AND YOU UNDERSTAND
saa kami no yubi o nameru no

arayuru doku ga sono iki o
hisomete wa semeai o motometeru
FEEL ACROSS THE BORDERLINE
The moment when noise turns into silence,
the tragedy of bonds being broken bit by bit,
the evidence of getting comfortable when things are torn apart,
I beg you, don't overlook them.
It's okay to leave it all in the past.

Feel across the borderline.
Now you're saved and you understand.
Come, experience the fingers of God.

As for you, all you can see is a cold weight.
If that's how it is, you can't share things like secrets.
Every time the gears make a sound,
you become aware of how you depend on them.
Let go of those hands you're gripping onto.

Feel across the borderline.
Now you're saved and you wake up.
Come, follow this fate.

If what's being taken away hurts you,
the world will warp for you without regret.
Feel across the borderline.

The scenario rushes to gradually transform.
I can remember the light that leaks down to the ocean floor.
With the key you're holding and rustling now,
what can you make happen?
Can a flame be lit with grief?

Feel across the borderline.
Now you're saved and you understand.
Come, experience the fingers of God.

We seek to attack each other
with the poison hidden in our breaths.
Feel across the borderline.
