Western: CLOWN SUIT & BAD JOKES – Costume Party (Lyrics)

Everyone I see is in a clown suit

It must make it a little easier to bare the bad news

It scares me to death but all I ever do is bath

Everywhere I look is a car crash

Butterfingers and black gloves

Somebody call the cops

Anything that I get ahold of is just another bomb to drop

Dirty hands that don’t make fists

Burn the body, burn the bridge

Give it up or give it a twist

Either way I won’t feel a thing

You’re gonna get

What you give

Forget what you see

Shine a little light in my best defense

Oh wow another empty shell

Ring another little bell

I’ll come running

I’ll come crawling out of the shadows

Into the sun

Burst into the frontlines

Dead until the deed is done

I know I’m not the only one

I know I’m not the only one

Butterfingers and black gloves

Somebody call the cops

Anything that I get ahold of is just another bomb to drop

Dirty hands that don’t make fists

Burn the body, burn the bridge

Give it up or give it a twist

Either way I won’t feel a thing


Breaking news interrupted

By bad jokes

Cartoon characters

Are running the show

It entertains the holy ghost

In sheltered homes

And those hipsters downtown don’t know

They hope to sell their souls

Don’t hate the player

Hate the game

If you can take the pleasure

Then you can take the blame

Oh the ignorance is bliss

And I truly wish it was as simple as this

One face all the pages

One flat that joke that wages wars

On his friends

With some paper and a pen

Like trashy reruns on a television set

A steady stream that never ends

Though it might bring us together

It doesn’t really matter if we’re in the wrong

Place at the wrong time

Got the right guy

But the wrong crime

It entertains the holy ghost

In sheltered homes

And those hipsters downtown don’t know where to go

To sell their souls

The masters of illusion

Are laughing to the bank

The sick sadistic hypnotists are playing with their prey

When this party’s over the darkness turns to day

I’m afraid to see the mess that might be left in its wake

When we’re all written off

When the night is upon us

We’re right where they want

All written off

Somebody does the devil’s work in the name of god

When we’re all written off

When the night is upon us

We’re right where they want

All written off

Somebody does the devil’s work in the name of god

Western: ATOMIC KARATE – TWRP feat. Egoraptor (JP→ENG Lyrics + Kanji + Romaji)

With my blood, we continue our spirit’s holy battle
kokoro ni seinaru senji no chi he
心に聖なる戦時の血へ

Taking on skilled recruits, we charge into the fight
shinpei no waza soushite yukan ga tatakai
新兵の技   そして行かんが戦い

With this magnificent power, and diligence
sono sodai na chikara no tannen ga
その壮大な力と丹念が

We’ll prepare for battle and lead ourselves to victory!
kakugo tataku no shouri wo michibiku
覚悟戦うの勝利を導く


A much requested clarification! Finally now this is done I can have some peace.

Since there were no lyrics released alongside Ladyworld, I was forced to transcribe by ear and attempt at a translation by composing which kanji might fit the situation. It really felt like a game of fill in the blanks, since the pronunciation and cadence were unclear – But I feel satisfied with releasing the result! It sounds pretty cool, doesn’t it? Of course, this is just a best guess — I’ve heard other studying Japanese haven’t really been able to understand the narration either. For all intents and purposes, I hope this works for everyone! Should the lyrics be released, I’ll edit this post and translate them directly.

Western: LOOKIN’ FOR TROUBLE – Costume Party (Lyrics)

Or as I like to call it “Please release your lyrics with your EPs, dude. I can’t understand what you’re saying.”

I plan to type up some of my favs for my own personal gain, because I just love singing along to some Costume Party!

you say it’s a good thing
but you fill our hearts with fear
the kingdom that you come from is so far away
you lost your cause along the way
forgot your name
fed the flames that you fight

wake up you’ve been dreamin
a dream inside a dream again
kickin and screamin in your sleep
no one would blame you for savin yourself or anybody else

chasin after hurricanes, bankin on a disaster
you go lookin for trouble
and you don’t come back

pull apart the skylines
bring down the rain flood the streets to be saved
water washes over the roads
like a long forgotten highway
shortcuts to a safer place we could escape
yeah, take shelter

i know that you mean no harm
(and there’s reason to be alarmed)
but these warnings have lost their charm for today

so tell us a good thing
fill our hearts with hope
you’ve got our trust and attention
we’re not giving up
you’re not alone

oh, ho, oh

chasin after hurricanes, bankin on a disaster
you go lookin for trouble
