No Regret Life - Life is a Symphony (English/Romaji) lyrics


English
Before I knew it, I was here
I forgot to wonder such things like how I came here
If there are things I can’t remember, although there are too many to count
I’ll carve the good days I remembered on the left side of my chest

I’ll drink up the joy and sadness
The story reflected in my eyes, I’ll pass through it all

Why do the nights alone seem lonely
Why do the mornings alone seem empty
If I softly grasp that hand which has completely chilled
Somehow or another I felt I found an answer

I’ll drink up the joy and sadness
The story reflected in my eyes, I’ll pass through it all
I’ll understand that warmth of separating and meeting people
I’ll understand the bitter taste of things like desire and betrayal

And now, only you stand still before my eyes
Before long it’ll come, when only the two of us will know the whereabouts of tomorrow

It's such a wonderful world.

Romaji
itsu no manika boku wa koko ni ita
douyatte kita no kana’nte wasureta
omoidasenai koto nara kazoe kirenai kedo
omoidashita hibi ga hidari mune kizamu

yorokobi mo kanashimi mo boku wa nomihoshite iku
me ni utsuru monogatada subete toori sugite iku

hitori no yoru wa naze sabishiin darou
hitori no asa wa naze munashiin darou
hiekitta sono te wo sotto nigirishimetara
nantonaku kotae ga wakatta ki ga shita

yorokobi mo kanashimi mo boku wa nomihoshite iku
me ni utsuru monogatada subete toori sugite iku

hitori ni ai wakare wo shite sono mukumori wo shiru
uragiri ya yukubou ya horonigai aji wo shiru

soshite ima me no mae de kimi dake ga tachidomaru
yagate kuru asu no yukue wa futari shika shiranai

kon’nani mo subarashii sekai

[A/N: I've started not adding the Kanji lyrics, also gonna start adding YouTube video's of the song if I can find them. If people want the Kanji lyrics back just tell me.]

LM.C Gacha Gacha Miracle Vol. 14 (English)

The topic about LM.C that rattled and appeared, this series is a relaxed talk. Now, this month’s topic is...?

Tell us how you would approach someone you liked

 -- If you were about to meet someone you liked, how would you approach them?
A: On this, Maya is easy to understand. At any rate, when it comes to things such as a girl I’m interested in, I get concerned about messing it up (laughs)
M: Certainly, without a doubt (laughs) It’s because I like regular girls that I’m easy to understand right? (laughs) Like everyday I’m just taken by somebody at first sight (laughs)
A: But, when you like someone the tension raises more and it's normal to be kind to everyone, so there are also signs that are hard to understand at times. 

-- Kinda like girls completely misunderstand you?
A: Yes just like that. I’m friendly so I think I give the impression that “maybe he like’s me” kind of appearance.
-- What do you do about it? How do you begin after being misunderstood.
M: Isn’t that love? It’s that okay though, if it begins even like that it’s started. Love is like, if you start running you can’t stop (wise saying)
A: by Fukuyama Masaharu. type of thing

-- Is that because it’s plagiarism? (having to mention who’s saying that was)
"Did you sleep yet~?"
 M: It’s not plagiarism. It’s a quote
A: But I think the sure thing is there is still a sense of tension that varies. Like for example, if you send texts to a girl your considering there will probably be a lot of emoticons (laughs), and when you cool down from the initial stage, the mail will become plain.
M: Aah~ (understanding) There might be (laughs). But, about the mail becoming plain, you also get used to that kinda of proof of affection, but it doesn’t mean that you hate them, or have grown tired of them.
A: Maya, in the old days you used to send me mail often, and now a days it’s remarkably different.
M: Eh!? You want them? (laughs) Like “Did you sleep yet~~?” and what not!? If you do, I’ll send them, but isn’t that kinda creepy? (laughs) You know, I really don’t understand you senpai. I don’t understand love.
"by no means has it..."
-- I feel like you don’t really have interests in concerns with women right? Only the smell of instrument and equipment.
A: Like only the smell of oil? But you know, the boiling point of passion seems certainly high and by no means has it been ignited by someone in particular, it hasn’t been ignited.
M: Why did you say that twice. You sound like a broken record (laughs). These kind of things are what makes senpai interesting. But this significance he has is in some sense a weapon.
A: Regardless of it concerning now? But, even I have the feeling everyday like “Ah! how cute” but I think there is a group of factors (to be considered) by being involved with somebody at first sight, and the previous feelings might not go away but from that I don’t start running after them.
M: Certainly, so you haven't had drama or waves with girls. That’s mysterious. You don’t have any? Drama I mean.
A: I haven't huh. For me, I can’t like someone who doesn’t try their best. Even if I think “they sure are cute”, but if that girl isn’t one who gives it their all in life then at once I become uninterested. That’s why, I can’t proceed beyond the initial point of attraction.
M: While you said that for some reason if I saw you in line for a handshake meeting for people like AKB48, that would definitely shock me (laughs).
A: I wouldn’t be waiting in line in the first place (laughs).
M: Maybe secretly. By the way hasn’t the desktop for your computer been just idols or something like that.
A: 100% no (flatly).

-- Hahahaha. For yourself if you met a girl you liked, how would you get her attention?
A: If I thought like “it’s her!”, I would push straight forward and I would probably be straightforward about it. I wouldn’t be so persistent in mail and stuff, but I would be sure to send at least one everyday. But, by no means do I want to go to the extent of her getting annoyed by it.
M: I think if I were to consider the path senpai analyzed earlier,  I would almost have no doubts ( laughs). But, if love start running you can’t stop!

LM.C Gacha Gacha Miracle Vol. 27 (English)

LM.C Special Five Year Anniversary Project

How the quiz works: One at a time we’ll flip over a question. One of them will write the correct answer, the other one will write what they think is right, and at the same time they’ll flip over their answers and join together to discuss the results!

       Just how much do they know about each other quiz!


Q1: When at a sushi restaurant what are the 3 nigiri sushi toppings Aiji will definitely order!
M: Whelk, botan shrimp, and warships of sea urchin
A: Whelk, botan shrimp, and Himokyu (clam fringe with cucumber)
M: I hesitated a bit but, isn’t that amazing!? (How much they match)

 Q2: This year during the summer what was Maya’s clothing coordination like?
M: (Picture)
A: (Picture)
A: Well, because I also wore these pants often!




 Q3: What would be the number 1 condition Aiji would want in a marriage partner?
A: Good at cooking.
M: A degree of self-reliance.
A: That would be another one. (a self-relying person)
M: By that, do you mean a person who has money?
A: What’s with that unpleasant interpretation?
M: Huh? Did I make a mistake? Didn’t you say like “aim for a marriage of convenience! The dream is a marriage of convenience” or something like that? senpai?
A: I did not (flatly). Because I’ve never mentioned a dream like that, neither have I ever had that kind of view!

Q4: What are the kind of times that Maya who doesn’t usually drink will feel like drinking.
A: When he’s told to by me.
M: Overseas, and nights when we gather for a birthday party.
A: But, this (Aiji’s answer) isn’t like a distinct kind of “I can’t refuse a drink that’s offered by senpai” feeling.
M: Yeah. Exactly though its like, because I’m told to drink, I’ll drink but, it’s not because I think it’s tasty or want to, I just do it. But, only on birthdays or other special days like that!


Q5: What is one point Aiji thinks is cute about Maya?
M: One? I think there are a lot but just one huh?
A: There aren’t any.
M: I’m sure there are quite a few, like this and that. Now tell me!
A: Their aren’t any (flatly). But if I had to say something...
M: My sleeping face?
A: Are you an idiot! (offended) I haven’t seen your sleeping face and I don’t have any interest to!
M: Alright, even though it’s not impossible to. (laugh) For me I often try looking at senpai’s sleeping face♥
A: Well don’t look.
M: But during tour’s when we are traveling and stuff it’s often exposed to the public. Even if I don’t want to see it I’l look (laugh). Well, but obviously it’s not entirely cute.
A: How irritating...
[Aiji’s actually answer: How much he likes himself]

 Q6: Maya likes ______ the best about Aiji! What kinda of thing is it?
A: My reaction.
M: The shape of his ears.
A: Huh? I don’t get what you mean! Why my ears?
M: Alright, I mean your ears. I have a different feeling about senpai’s ears than other people, and it’s better to have self-confidence about it.
A: No it’s not!
M: Nope, It’s better to have self confidence! No doubt about it.


Q7: Is it because you can’t always see them, and once in awhile when you do you're startled by them or...?
A: Even though I’m surprised by Maya about this point, it’s unpleasant (laugh)
M: Certainly (laugh). But it’s not like that, I just think they’re a good shape. Furthermore, I suppose I’m seeking that kind of big reaction. So, it’s better to continue to cherish these kind of things. That’s the trick to being loved by senpai!
A: That’s kind of irritating
M: Even though I’m praising you

Uchuu Sentai NOIZ - SHINE Lyrics (Eng/Rom/Kan)

English
Words: Angel-Taka Music: Kotaro

The heavens turned off their worries and delivered stars spread over the sky
If you keep your head lowered then you can't seem them
Bathe yourself in the light and become a butterfly

If you are suspended by the idea of "fate", the thrill of anticipation for the future dies
Don't fuel your useless anxieties
Carry your own flag to the moon

Before you despair, so you have a proud future
Climb up to the heavens above the clouds
Even if the whole world is your enemy
So that you don’t lose your treasured items
I’ll sing so the sound of this voice reaches you

The silver colored night that made up the moonlight melted the darkness
The prism of back lighting streaks of light
Dazzles to the extent that is burns my chest

I’ll shake you awake with a tomorrow that died
If you’re scared of that, hold out that hand that’s trembling
I’ll grab it, and hold on tightly

Only you and no anyone else can awaken your memory
If you make it to the heavens above the clouds
Even if the whole world is your enemy
I wonder if everything can be forgiven
I’ll sing until the sound of this voice dies

If it's true that grief freezes you to the point when you can't hold on, can't see
Then tomorrow doesn’t seem all that bright
Feel the miracle of there being a present

Before you despair, so you have a proud future
Climb up to the heavens above the clouds
Even if the whole world is your enemy
So that you don’t lose your treasured items
I’ll sing so the sound of this voice reaches you

Only you and no anyone else can awaken your memory
If you make it to the heavens above the clouds
Even if the whole world is your enemy
I wonder if everything can be forgiven
I’ll sing until the sound of this voice dies

Don’t let go of that hand, to another eternity

UNDIVIDE - AHEAD Lyrics

some of you may flash back to the days gone by
hoping us to reunite
what means to me that I am still on my path
a long long journey that may never come to an end
since success is only a fact and not the goal
let me smile right before I die, watching back overall

take me ahead, live today
what’s gone will never be back, leave behind
I remember how it was
and you will begin to build again

now follow the steps as we start to walk again
now follow the sound as we start to play again
now is the time
the style does not matter anymore
what we do, what we have done
it’s all the same
open your heart
you shall now
undivide

UNIDIVIDE - 13AM Lyrics

the sky is burning above my head
raining the ashes of regret
trying not to breathe in deep the pain

there’s not a place I can walk away
just the plastic case that’s inside of me
wonder in the innocence I made to fake the weak in me
trying to the show the best of me but it’s not enough, it’s not enough
holding on then letting go, only wanting for someone to know

I’m lost inside the mistakes like anybody else
trying to imagine the glory I wanna see

I can’t do this anymore
walking with the regrets on my way back home
lies I disguise only makes me wanna stay alone
now I’ll delight everything that leads me into hope

throw out demons out the door
all this time I never known
it’s been playing with the negativity in me
I’m starting to notice what the answer really is
cause everything clears when I appreciate
for everyone that I relate
has been here with me and always by my side

I hold desire with me like anybody else
seeking my ideal for the best I could be

I can’t do this anymore
walking with the regrets on my way back home
lies I disguise only makes me wanna stay alone
now I’ll delight everything that leads me into hope

I’m trying to see, trying to be
(trying to make it on my own)
I believe I will be
you know

I can’t do this anymore
walking with the regrets on my way back home
lies I disguise only makes me wanna stay alone
now I’ll delight everything that leads me into hope

(you can only light the way in, you can only light the way out,
you can be the light that shines us through)
I’m trying to see, trying to be
(trying to make it on my own)
I believe I will be

the sky is burning above my head
roaming inside my own bed
blur’n my time like it’s 13AM

UNDIVIDE - JEYKILL & HYDE Lyrics

it’s you, stuck inside this gap
grasping to my veins
can you help me from this sorrow, I’ve holding much too long
desperate for a chance
(losing my mind like Jekyll and Hyde)

when I’m losing my focus
on a tiny error
my weakness reacts to the poison
generated in my head
like a thousand hiding voices
whisper to my ear
the growing need for you keeps rising
push forward like a wave

can you give me a sign
and tell me what’s right
cause I’m losing my time without you by my side
no, I’m not alright
craving you tonight
and I’m losing my mind like Jeykll and Hyde

breathing in your spell, seethe the greed, in my heart
try’n to comprehend every meaning
of your digital passage
wears me out to find the message
of how you really feel
I don’t know, not anymore, so alone
doesn’t matter to have the answer
if love was sacrifice

I am petrified
I need your pride
for me
(looking at the pictures, imaging you soft, with all I remember
ocean size of your thoughts, drowning me to loneliness)
(losing my mind like Jekyll and Hyde)

breathing in you spell, seethe the greed, in my heart

can you give me a sign
and tell me what’s right
cause I’m losing my time without you by my side
no, I’m not alright
craving you tonight
and I’m losing my mind like Jeykll and Hyde

will I be one again?
cause I know that you’ll give me a sign
and tell me what’s right
then my life would feel alright with you my side
with you my side, Jekyll and Hyde

UNDIVIDE - SKIN Lyircs

piled with pride you brag to hide
that status of the lies you can’t deny
sharing your stores inside-out
pulling the strings not to surface the doubt

why compare yourself against with me?

all these words you’ve spit at me
will slap back to your teeth
you’ll spill what lies beneath
your skin
scream’n your criticize
bring’n you back down to size
you’ve spilled what lie inside
your skin

drunk in the phantom dressed in bluff
you wanna tell me that I’m not enough
I don’t need your analyze
opened your mouth cause you need attention
you share your point but lost the reason

all these words you’ve spit at me
will slap back to your teeth
you’ll spill what lies beneath
your skin
scream’n your criticize
bring’n you back down to size
you’ve spilled what lie inside
your skin

why can't you admit me
I’m not your self-esteem
Why can’t you let me be
I’m not self-esteem

all these words you’ve spit at me
will slap back to your teeth
you’ll spill what lies beneath
your skin
scream’n your criticize
bring’n you back down to size
you’ve spilled what lie inside
your skin

(Repeat above passage)

your no better
you fucking pussy rock star

UNDIVIDE - BLEED THE TRUTH Lyrics

aligned with metal horns they gore against the population
serving us constitution fill our cups with regulation
buried their accidents in the residence of contradiction
stocking them golden coins, secure for post and legislation

how will they overcome?
this mayhem’s turning numb
retrieve this sorrow, retrieve tomorrow
though still they hesitate
how smart they ought to fake
to bleed the truth

smiling with declaration wave them hands of counterfeit
they teach you how to give up push away the obligation
sells out their sympathy to buy their way to raise the tax
blinds all the explanation to swim inside the abstraction

how will they overcome?
this mayhem’s turning numb
retrieve this sorrow, retrieve tomorrow
though still they hesitate
how smart they ought to fake
to bleed the truth

but I’m not gonna lose against their will
like a lamb in order
and I will be the first to not stay still
as long as I am me

(All right it time to put (inaudible) these fucked up politicians)
(1, 2, 3 GO)    

1 lamb, 2 lamb, 3 lamb, 4
choking on the rings that’s pierced on their nose
1 lamb, 2 lamb, 3 lamb, 4
choking on the rings that’s pierced on their nose

how smart they ought to fake, to bleed the truth
I’m not your lamb

but I’m not gonna lose against their will
like a lamb in order
and I will be the first to not stay still
as long as I am me

don’t let them tell you who you should of been
they only wanna crawl on the things they see
I will show you how to stand alone
as long as you are alive

UNDIVIDE - FIREBALL Lyrics

oh tell me why, so tell me why, now tell me why
these madness going around, keeps coming around,
just loop around
discriminated, methods of hatred, demonstrated, generated
extremist, radicalism, terrorist, and fucking racist
burn
just burn
go ahead and burn
now burn
we’re running out of youth, running out of truth, running into blues
undercover wars, separating walls, enforced by laws
burn
just burn
go ahead and burn
now burn

(can you) hear them children cry
leaving them behind, amends are left to dry into ash
(save this world, save their world)
cause life hurts anyway, for just the way we live
can’t stand to watch their future sacrificed

burned, burned, burned like a fireball
burned, burned, burned like a fireball

we will unite, won’t roll their dice, we will survive
can’t stop us now, no matter how, yeah refuse it loud
for us to burn
burn, they can’t make us burn
burn, they can’t make us burn

burned, burned, burned like a fireball
burned, burned, burned like a fireball

don’t let them tell you what you can or cannot do
cause the world is still in our hands
but if thoughts we have collide would you fight and deny?
or will you take my hand to find a way?

burn, burn, burn, burn
burn
just burn
go ahead and burn
yeah burn

(can you) hear them children cry
leaving them behind, amends are left to dry into ash
(save this world, save their world)
cause life hurts anyway, for just the way we live
can’t stand to watch their future sacrificed

when will they realize
see kids watching why amends left for them relied
(save his world, save her world)
cause life’s tough anyway, we can never give away
and lead them blind with future sacrificed

burned, burned, burned like a fireball
burned, burned, burned like a fireball

UNDIVIDE - NEMESIS Lyrics

crawling by absence of the bond I used to have with me
trapped in the loneliness I find it hard to come at ease
shroud the wounds and bound the pain
it’s all inside and I feel it gain
the pressure always stays no matter anyway
gave up to give up so I’ll never be astray

I’m not afraid, I can never runaway
I have to face my nemesis
so one by one, you know I will overcome
I’ll face my nemesis

running
gotta keep away from
falling
can you hear my heart this
screaming
I’m looking for attention
my time is not enough for
wasting
had too much do with
crying
take away the fear of
fighting
while in limitation
don’t wanna feel my life so null

no time for a mother fxxk’n rain check,
all I’m looking for is a little bit of respect
check my tech gonna break your neck
I wanna take ya higher to the upper deck
stepp’n to the life in the fast lane
everybody always jumping on the night train
give you money, give you fame, everyday champaign
they try’n to steal my brain

(lies, truth, luck, sin, life, death)
I’m captured in battle moments crossing into make me sweat

running
gotta keep away from
falling
can you hear my heart this
screaming
I’m looking for attention
my time is not enough for
wasting
had too much do with
crying
take away the fear of
fighting
while in limitation
don’t wanna feel my life so null

(Repeat above passage)

no time for a mother fxxk’n rain check,
all I’m looking for is a little bit of respect
check my tech gonna break your neck
I wanna take ya higher to the upper deck

UNDIVIDE - MINDS UP Lyrics

found my way again, and I know it’s not the end
it’s just the start!!!

lock and load it’s time to go
refilled the energy gonna overflow
my instinct sharp and slick
refined the style and got the grip
cut off the enemy that pull the string
they attack cuz they’re trembling
no way to break my heart of stone
demonstrating tactics how to stand strong

burn away all the agony
that falls from the sky
all the anger, misery
impel you in time

every move you make decides
what tomorrow will derive

found my way again, and I know it’s not the end
I will start again, I will start again
found my way again, and I will never descend
I will stand against through this long and winding road
(minds up)
I will be walking on my own
(minds up)
just don’t let me fight this all alone

how many times have I felt
that this may be the last chance to live my dream
now I know every move I made lead me to this day
I won’t deny

blow away this apathy
that clouds in the night
every aspect in your life
impel you in time

every move you make decides
what tomorrow will derive
for you

found my way again, and I know it’s not the end
I will start again, I will start again
found my way again, and I will never descend
I will stand against through this long and winding road
(minds up)
I will be walking on my own
(minds up)
just don’t let me fight this all alone
(minds up)
someday, somehow
I’ll get me through this on my own
(minds up)
on my own

UNDIVIDE - THE CATALYST Lyrics

can you feel the invisible line someone has made?
the time has come to break these walls
yeah!!!!!

blow out their segregation
torched by the boundaries
they shake your own decision
fading your resolution
what you evade
clouded your vision now
don’t let them force your style to what they engage

you see these walls that don’t exist
withered by your ignorance
you need a taste before you start?
just close your mouth and follow your heart

why divide to outer
determine “another”
while we seek to feel the same
I’ll take you somewhere
a place we can share
just make me your catalyst

what you have become is not what you will be
now listen

wake up the infinite sense
destroy all the stereotype
there is more than what you are seeing
don’t let your attention slide

you play these games that don’t exist
withered by their infection
you need to look before you start?
just close your eyes and follow your heart

why divide to outer
determine “another”
while we seek to feel the same
I’ll take you somewhere
a place we can share
just make me your catalyst

deep in this field there’s a sound I think you should of know
spread out your world and just
see what’s real

why divide to outer
determine “another”
while we seek to feel the same
I’ll take you somewhere
a place we can share
just make me your catalyst

don’t decide as other
see what really matters
what we do to stay alive
I know you can hear this
I know you can feel me
if you make me your catalyst

UNDIVIDE - 400 Days Lyrics

the steps of my path, 400 days has past
ending in vandalize, an omen I now realize
distraction is that my body is evolving when what surrounds me degenerate
what hurts is people are changing while my will feels to stay the same

call my name

Time and time again
I can only live the way that I can see
I’m trying once again
so you can hear before you close the door

prime of my life
I don’t wanna lose what you still see in me
it’s time to start again
cuz I can’t live without this anymore

LM.C Interview Kera December Vol 148 (English)

Mr. Of This Month

This time we infiltrated the PV shooting for LM.C’s new single “LET ME’ CRAZY!!” which will be released October 17th☆ There we observed a precious offshoot not usually seen!
 

It’s the first single release for the commemoration of 5 years anniversary, we of course talk about this new single, ask about the future, and also the attention to their private fashion☆



Q: For this single did you decide on a concept or theme?
A: Well every time we don’t really decide on a concept we choose the song with the feeling like “next time what would be good to put out”.
M: We write the song and lyrics while always thinking it would be good if we could grow into something that is “a little more advance than the previous LM.C” most recent at the time. But I don’t usually think lets go to a whole other place, never.

Q: In regards to your songs, when I listen, there are a lot of lyrics that lift your spirits isn’t there? This time the lyrics also for “LET ME’ CRAZY!!” is like a view on the world that makes you want to move forward with courage.
M: Rather than me saying do your best to someone, the feeling of saying it while facing yourself is powerful. I don’t want to consciously think about making a supportive song, here is something about a “Ah--, what’s that I heard” kind of reaction that I like to look forward to. I have been thinking that the freedom of creation for each work have been able to increase. At present when I would compose for a lengthy time, I thought this would make the composition narrow but I was able to come to the point when I could say "I wanted it like this kinda of feeling".

Q: On October of next year you won’t approach a 5th year anniversary but it will probably be like 5 years right?

 A: There wasn’t really early years, because debut = activities started, though I think 5 years is different for everyone, but, completing every year, I’m able to think that every year is a blessing, I think is a wonderful thing.
M: I think if I decide on destination or goal, those things become added stress and pressure, but for the first year of the 5th anniversary, you just simply can’t help but have fun. And I guess we were allowed to make the history that has piled up.

Q: This time we intruded on the scene of the PV, so please also tell us highlights of the PV.
A: There aren’t a lot of PV’s that are shot with the same organization as a live so it’s close to a usual live, I think it would be nice if it translated a “band type feeling”.
M: Or so, the single in the fifth year after we came back after one whole year.

Q: The coupling track「No Fun, No Future」 for some reason seems half finished doesn't it?
A: Well.. that isn’t us is it? (laughs)
M: MAD AIJI doing vocals and MAD MAYA playing bass are in charge of this band called 「THE MAD LM.C」. They also are filming a PV so, if you look over some ways over there you’ll be able to see them.

Q: Who’s idea was this?
A: Maya’s.
M: Well, you could say that it's a project to liven up the 5th anniversary, because of this period it might have been why I thought of it all of a sudden.

Q: This year, isn’t there all sorts of planning?
A: There are a lot of things I want to do. Things that people in the fan club can enjoy, and things that people who aren’t in the fan club can enjoy.
M: I think we'll announce something or other at SHIBUYA AX in November.

Q: Finally, I would like to ask you also about fashion, but do you have a private thing you are curious about?
M: For me its not to catch a cold heading towards winter
A: Huh? That? (Laugh)
M: Well, I'm interested in earlier Western style clothing books. I don't ever buy things like magazines myself, but aren't there a lot of them in places like beauty salon? I think “Everyone must read these kinda of books if you buy such clothes”, but I don’t buy them (laugh). Kera! Is oriented towards girls isn't it? Well, I'll venture towards it and will use it as a reference.
A: Recently, for clothes I wanted a leather jacket, and about three days ago I was searching for one on the web for a long time. But, after all If you don't try it on then you don't really know how it fits huh? (laugh)

Get in the way
The beat we leaned over made us turn around
Instead of being afraid of the people we found
The words we exchanged were wounded
So that I’ll never forget it I engraved the pain

「Fortunate enough to be without sorrow」
「To be without lonesomeness when your able to say your solitary」
「Rejoice at the happiness your hands can already reach」
「I justify this and that hand」

Get in the way
Emotion wrapped in a soul so brazen
As it is... Ahh some how or another I'll break it
Only my naked heart pushes on
If it's possible I would have wanted to remain honest

「Knowing the strength to admit weakness」
「Voices of sorrow in a crazed morning」
「But light shines in the world」
「Illuminate the polluted shoes」

Get in the way
The beat we leaned over made us turn around
Instead of being afraid of the people we found
The words we exchanged were wounded
So that I’ll never forget it I engraved the pain

Ahh, Why
Were we born?

Ahh, hey, like the longed for shoe gazer
Only I can't move in slow motion
The scenery began to run in non-stop motion
Don't leave those behind, take someone along, I will too, those are the "Conditions for a Hero"

New PV 「CLOUD9」by Uchuu Sentai NOIZ

Today the band Uchuu Sentai NOIZ released the PV from their new album entitled「METEORS」which releases on September 26th. 



Earlier this week they released a collection of samples from all their songs on their upcoming album 「METEORS」, so I knew what to kind of expect when I first listened to this song but in some aspects they did surprise me and overall I thought it was a good mix of different vocal style and instrumentals.

Masato's vocals have always been a distinct quality in their music and I was happy again to hear a song where he get a chance to demonstrate his skillful rapping and in this PV partially his singing. Towards the end though he took his place back on the guitar but for most of it he was sharing the spotlight with Angel-Taka who's voice is still a great compliment to his own.

Knowing NOIZ I was expecting a set of heavy vocals with a uplifting chorus, and at the end of the song there was one but I thought this song showed more of Angel-Taka and Masato coming together to play off of each other.

Instrumental wise, they seemed to have carried on from their last album 「HIGHFIVE」 where heavy drums and bass lines from Yamato and Kyo were dominant. Along with rhythmic guitar from Masato and clean guitar from Kotaro intertwining to highlight Angel-Taka's vocals.

Overall I think they picked a versatile song from their album to make a PV for. Within the song they were able to highlight the things that make NOIZ, NOIZ, and at the same time show off their specific talents to show a wide arrange of sound and capability.

I look forward to purchasing this album when it's released and continuing to try my best to translate their songs into English. Please look forward to those song as well as the rest from 「HIGHFIVE」! If you like, leave a comment below and tell me what you think of this song and what you are most looking forward to about their upcoming album!

Kanata (The Distance)
(Music: MASATO Words: MASATO)

Tell me the story of the dream you saw one day
I was yet saved by the temporary kindness

The promise I fulfilled under the sun
Releasing the hand that I clung to
I answered so vaguely

“I can still hear your ballad”
I prayed my song reached you across the distance

You who can’t successfully laugh
You who can’t successfully speak
Place your index finger to my chest
With your eyes fixed on me

I noticed it
After meeting you by chance
The word I wanted to tell you
Wasn’t a wish

There is still a continuation for this dream
So that we are certain
Our gazes always meet one anothers now and then

"I can still hear your ballad..."
I prayed my song reached you across the distance

I noticed it
After bidding farewell
The word I wanted to tell you
Wasn’t a wish

いつか見た夢の話僕に聞かせてよ
仮初めの優しさでも救われてたこと

果たした約束太陽の下
しがみついた手を離して
そう曖昧に答えたんだ

君の唄がまだ聞こえるって
僕の詩が彼方へ届けと願った

上手く笑えない君は
上手く話せない君は
人差し指を胸に置いて
僕を見つめている

気が付いたんだ
出逢ってからね
伝えたかった言葉は
希望じゃなくて

夢にはまだ続きがあるんだってさ
確かめるようにずっと僕らは
見つめ合うままだった

君の唄がまだ聞こえるって
僕の詩が彼方へ届けと願った

気が付いたんだ
別れてからね
伝えたかった言葉は
希望じゃなくて

Even though you started at a faraway distance
You were snatched by the winter sky
Like a smoke of white snow
You finished dyeing and disappeared

I kiss your dreams
Because I still can't say "goodbye"

My only wish was to live in the wide world
But your tomorrow was washed away
Longing for spring I continued to wait for the flowers
You're not here, so I look to the sky

That day when you would not wake up
I embraced a number of sad flower
I wandered life in a long dream
If I could just return to the place where I came from

I miss your warmth
Waiting, till someday I can return to your side

Till the end of this wide world I who's all by myself
Will continue to live your tomorrow
Scared by the cold weather, and shivered by the powdered snow
I'll endure winter, even now

You fly in the air higher than anyone else
Welcomed by the blue sky
Always, watch over me

My only wish was to live in the wide world
But your tomorrow was washed away
Longing for spring I continued to wait for the flowers
You're not here, so I look to the sky

[ D-Day ]*
I peel off my skin
Where is my hope ?
For days
I will hold my breath
Until I kill myself

Those fingernail marks left on the seashore
Those waiting people who prayed for the melody of a baby's first cry
Even the swaying emerald built out of sand is destroyed
The sound of dancing iron in my temples coldly whisper

[ D-Day ]
Tear of the existence, the mere shadow of one's former self
Foray**
Until that blood runs dry
The rosy pink cloud I look to in the sky are judged by the moon
Continue the beautiful struggle of sin
Look back on that day

When that infinite empty shell drifts about
On that day it lovingly dances in silence

[ D-Day ]
Tear of the existence, the mere shadow of one's former self
Foray
Until that blood runs dry

The rosy pink cloud I look to in the sky are judged by the moon
Continue the beautiful struggle of sin
To the start of the day

I peel off my skin
Where is my hope ?
For days
I will hold my breath
Until I kill myself

Uchuu Sentai NOIZ - Jewel English Translations

 English
(Music: KOTARO Words: ANGEL-TAKA)

Instead of staying in that kind of place head over here
Its that I came here to see you
Although we speak different languages
Get in! RIDE ON TIME

With momentum entrusted cross the boarder towards the sky
You are the stereotype
Right now I want to tell you
Don’t regret LIFE
Go on foot! BOYS BE AMBITIOUS

When you were born into this world
You were crying with a loud voice
But hey
Everyone around you was smiling right?
So the sunshine comes in

To illuminate the total darkness
Before the feeling that we are about to give out
SHAINY GUY stands up again and again
Because he is believing that the dream he sketched will come true

There are people who protect
Because there is this present time
There are people who I’ll protect
DON’T LIFT THE HAND

Surpassing only the touch of love by gazing at each other
We'll have courage to forgive each other entirely
If a person can continue straight facing the same direction
Go on foot! GIRLS BE AMBITIOUS

When you were born into this world
You were crying with a loud voice
But hey
Everyone around you was smiling right?
To shine a light of hope

If god exists
I want to thank him with all my heart
SHAINY LADY who are always loved
Because she is believing that the dream she sketched will come true

When I come to an end
So I can go to the sky smiling
「I won’t hesitate if you have decided a path」
I was told when I was a child

To illuminate the total darkness
Before the feeling that we are about to give out
We stand up again and again
Because we are believing that the dream we sketched will come true

Romaji
(Music: KOTARO Words: ANGEL-TAKA)

Son’na toko ni inaide koko ni kite
Kimi ni ai ni kita nda
Hanasu kotoba wa chigau kedo
Nore RIDE ON TIME

Ikioi makase de sora e kokkyougoete
Kimi to wa sutereo taipu
Ima sugu tsutaetai
Koukai shinai LIFE
Ayume saa Boys be

Kono yo ni sei wo uketa toki
Kimi wa ooki na koe de naiteta
Dakedo nee
Mawari no min’na wa waratteta desho?
Hikari ga sashikomu you ni

Makkurayami terasu no wa

Nando mo tachiagaru SHAINY GUY
Egaita yume wa kanau to shinjite iru kara

Mamotte kureru hito ga ite
Kono ima ga aru kara
Mamotte ageru hito ga iru
DON’T LIFT THE HAND

Mitsumete fureau dake no ai wo sugite
Subete yurushi au yuuki wo
Onaji hou wo massugu muite ikeru hito to
Ayume saa GIRLS BE AMBITIOUS

Kono yo ni sei wo uketa toki
Kimi wa ooki na koe de naiteta

Itsu demo aisareru SHAINY LADY
Egaita yume wa kanau to shinjite iru kara

Mae ni ikou to suru kimochi
Nando mo tachiagaru bokura
Egaita yume wa kanau to shinjite iru kara

(A/N: * In the lyrics they write 「人生」which means “life” but in the song he sings 「道」which means “path/course”)

Kanji
(Music: KOTARO Words: ANGEL-TAKA)

そんなとこに居ないでここに来て
君に逢いに来たんだ
話す言葉は違うけど
乗れ Ride on Time

勢い任せで空へ国境越えて
君とはステレオタイプ
今すぐ伝えたい
後悔しない Life
歩め さぁ Boys be ambitious

この世に生を受けた時
君は大きな声で泣いてた
だけど ねぇ
周りのみんなは笑ってたでしょ?
光が差し込むように

真っ暗闇照らすのは
前に行こうとする気持ち
何度も立ち上がる Shainy Guy
描いた夢は叶うと信じているから

守ってくれる人が居て
この今があるから
守ってあげる人がいる
Don’t lift the hand

見つめて触れ合うだけの愛を過ぎて
すべて許し合う勇気を
同じ方を真っ直ぐ向いて行ける人と
歩め さぁ Girls be ambitious

この世に生を受けた時
君は大きな声で泣いてた
だけど ねぇ
周りのみんなは笑ってたでしょ?
希望の光が差して

神様がいるのなら
思いっきり感謝したいんだ
いつでも愛される Shainy Lady
描いた夢は叶うと信じているから

僕が終わる時
笑って空に逝けるように
「あなたが決めた人生*なら迷わない」
教えてくれた幼き日

真っ暗闇照らすのは
前に行こうとする気持ち
何度も立ち上がる撲等
描いた夢は叶うと信じているから


(A/N: * In the lyrics they write 「人生」which means “life” but in the song he sings 「道」which means “path/course” And yes in the actual lyrics they have "Shainy" I don't know why but they do)

Again if you see any mistakes please do tell me! I'm still learning after all and anything helps! :)

LM.C Q & A at Acen

Key:
M = Maya
A = Aiji
T = Translator
C = Crowd
F = Fan
A/N = Author’s Note


As soon as everyone settled into their seats the question and answer panel seemed to start up really quick. The translator welcomed in Maya and Aiji and they took their places at the front of the room. After getting settled people began to wave and say hi and Maya and Aiji politely smiled at everyone.

M: So its like this huh

C: -laugh-

T: Okay I’m sure you already the very well much more than I do, but allow me to have them introduce themselves.

M: Hello, I’m Maya
A: Hello, I’m Aiji

Maya checks to see if the microphone is on by going “Ah,  Ah” into the mic.
T: Its on
C: -laugh-

M: Thank you very much for coming to see us, I hope this panel will be fun.
A: How many of you came to our live yesterday?
C: -many people cheer and raise their hand-
A: Yesterdays’ live was the best, and it made me happy that you all came, and I hope today is just as fun

(A/N: The translator made it sound like there was another live so there was a bit of confusion but he corrected himself)

Q: Since we are at an Anime Convention, if you could cosplay a character who would it be?
M: I would cosplay the character Satoshi… I don’t know what he is called in America but the guy from Pokemon.
A: I would cosplay Captain Tsubasa (A/N: I couldn’t catch what anime it was from)

Q: What got you into music in general?
M: For me it was a band called X Japan when I listened to them when I was a kid
A: For me, I don’t know if you could call it what got me into music or not but it was a band called Buck-Tick, they were an early favorite.

Q: What inspires you to compose your music and the lyrics, like the format of the song and the stories of songs like Bell the Cat or 88?
M: When there is music already made I will get inspiration from the music itself, otherwise I get it from the daily life and what I feel and I’ll turn that into lyrics.

Q: What is your favorite song?
M: Can it be any song or just an LM.C song?
F: Any song
M: Ahhhh, I remember the music but I can’t remember the name of the title.. Its an American song, “We are” something… I can’t remember -laughs- (a bit more of sounds and pauses) sorry I still can’t remember -laughs- let me think a bit more
A: For me I have too many to choose from but, the first song I heard when I came to Chicago was Frank Sinatra’s My Way.
M: I still can’t remember -laughs-

Q: How do you guys like to tune your guitars and what kind effects do you use on stage?
M: You mean the way we tune?
A: For six strings its drop C with C sharp on the last string

Q: What inspires your on stage costumes, do you decide them or do you consult with a stylist?
A: When talking about the stage costume, me, Maya and the stylist have the brand groucho, and that’s what we use for costumes.

Q: What do you think of us, do you think we are weird?
M: I don’t like talking about somebody else cause we are all the same but I see many people cosplaying and dressing in different fashions and just like anyone else we are also expressing ourselves by having an original style and taking inspiration from things we like but the important part is we are expressing ourselves and it makes us happy but wether or not we are strange is a different matter.

Q: What are some weird things that have happened to you on your tour?
A: Ah~ It’s changed (topic) -laughs- For instants just yesterday during the live someone just suddenly came up on the stage. The person that came up timed in perfectly that even the staff thought he was part of the show, but we noticed he smelt like alcohol so the staff had him kicked out.
M: Wasn’t he suppose to be Pikachu?
A: Was he!?
M: He was a good Pikachu -laughs-

Q: Do you have any animals or like any animals?
M: I personally don’t have any but at my parents house we have a dog.
C: -couple of people clap-
A: Why the clap? -laughs-
A: I have a cat of my own from last year, Sora
C: -more people cheer and clap-
A: Seems like there are more people that like cats than dogs
C: -people in crowd start saying the have dogs-
A: Ah there are quite a few (dog fans)

Q: Who have been your biggest support other than the fans on this journey throughout this whole experience?
M: Our group of members that have traveled with us.

Q: When Yoshiki was here last year he didn’t eat Chicago pizza, have you had Chicago pizza yet?
A: Yes, that was the first thing we had.

Q: How do you get pumped up for lives?
A: In our case we are like this until right before the concert starts. When the opening sound effects start playing and we are right about the go up on the stage, instantly our moods change.

Q: Do you have a favorite English word or phrase?

M: Are there any good words we should know?
C: You don’t want to know the swear words
M + A: -laughs-
M: Do you all have favorite Japanese words or phrases?
C: -start nodding their heads and saying yes-
M: Could you tell us?

Someone for the crowd says hour glass, and Maya and Aiji were both surprised and kinda laughed. She then goes on to tell a long story about her life. Others were like interesting, I don’t speak Japanese, painful, I love you…. etc
