J-Music: PRIMITIVE – BiSH (JP→ENG Lyrics Translation)

Beside your frigid words, stand close and still.
Face toward me and wave your hand ‘goodbye’. There’s no way to turn back to that time.

I don’t want to reflect on this.
Surely you’d just make me doubt in my abilities, you hypocrite.
I never want to see something like yesterday again.

What colour will I dye the memories circling my brain?
Something more enchanting – higher? Oh, a thousand star galaxy.

You couldn’t see the details of the world before us, but even if you pretended you did
You can’t reach out for it.
You can’t take it in. Could you even believe in it all?

Frigid words can be like a knife that no one can see.
When you don’t expect, you’ll dribble out guilt, and the feelings you can’t stomach.

Did you see the little bit that slipped away? And how it made me feel ashamed?
Just now I was thinking that there wasn’t a cut.

What colour will I dye the memories circling my brain?
Something more enchanting – higher? Oh, a thousand star galaxy.

You couldn’t see the details of the world before us, but even if you pretended you did
You can’t reach out for it.
You can’t take it in. Could you even believe in it all?

No matter how many times I think about it
all I hope is to return to the quiet way it was
but it’s so far from me now I can’t grasp.
I’m bore inside.

What colour will I dye the memories circling my brain?
Something more enchanting – higher? Oh, a thousand star galaxy.

You couldn’t see the details of the world before us, but even if you pretended you did
You can’t reach out for it.
You can’t take it in. Could you even believe in it all?


Bolded portions were already in English! Not many, but it’s an important distinction, because “I’m bore inside.” has no discernible meaning I can think of. My best guess is that, in the context of the song, it means that the speaker is empty inside.
