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!
