MACHINE CIVILIZATION

These guys are kind of addicting…

Requested by: Nijiru

I’ll catch up on these translation requests! Just need to get some red-bull or something XD (You may have noticed I’m not actually doing them in order; sorry about that… :x)

Notes:
“Are these thoughts illusion?” In the Japanese it uses 想い which is more synonymous with “longing”. Is this longing I have an illusion? I left the translation the same inline to fit with the English.

MACHINE CIVILIZATION
Artist: 須藤元気 (Sudou Genki)
Album: WORLD ORDER

The morning of machine civilization
赤い楯 影迷い
灰色の服纏い
リズムに囚われた朝
いつもと同じ瞬間
止めない生産ライン
何かが欠けてる
In the twilight of machinery

The morning of machine civilization
 Upon a shield of red shadows wander
 Dressed in ashen gray
 A morning captive in rhythm
 An instant like any other
 On an ever-running assembly line
 Something is missing
In the twilight of machinery

Where’s the world going
Won’t somebody tell me
Are these thoughts illusion
Are we all one
この世界は変われるのか
この想いは幻か

Where’s the world going?
Won’t somebody tell me?
Are these thoughts illusion?
Are we all one?
 Can this world change?
 Are these thoughts illusion?

People find work to be done
人は働き 鳥歌う
眠りに落ちた夢
目を覚ませ 彼叫ぶ
いつもと同じ瞬間
この刹那に生きる
いつか革命求め
In the twilight of machinery

People find work to be done
 People work, birds sing
 Everyone asleep; it’s all a dream
 ”Open your eyes!” he screamed
 In an instant like any other
 In this moment living
 Hoping for revolution one day
In the twilight of machinery

Where’s the world going
Won’t somebody tell me
Are these thoughts illusion
Are we all one
この想いを変えれるのか
いつも夢に笑いかける

Where’s the world going?
Won’t somebody tell me?
Are these thoughts illusion?
Are we all one?
 Can I change these thoughts?
 I smile at this ongoing dream.

Are these thoughts illusion? (x16)

Where’s the world going
Won’t somebody tell me
Are these thoughts illusion
Are we all one
この想いを変えれるのか
いつも夢に笑いかける

Where’s the world going?
Won’t somebody tell me?
Are these thoughts illusion?
Are we all one?
 Can I change these thoughts?
 I smile at this ongoing dream.

    And actually, what’s the name of the artist you’re using for the Genki Sudo songs.

    • “a.q.u.a” – you can find him via danbooru-board tag or search the name on pixiv :)
