えりあんのうた // Alien no Uta

Sponsored by: Zen
Transcription Assistance: Sherlinaev
Official Transcription: HeartfeltFancy [SatelliteShinigiwa]

Internalizing the Hatred of Being Othered.

UPDATE:
Merami’s vocals have been updated with an accurate transcription, and the translation has been adjusted accordingly. The screams are still by-ear.

Notes:

  • Independence Day ? (“bogeys and UFOs”)

  • Internalizing Otherism: turned up to 11:
    You could make this song about ANY marginalized group.

  • What little salvation to be had is found in the hints of a rebellious vibe still contained in the back-vocal screams.

  • My confidence on the screams and growls are well below the 50% mark. I almost scrapped that part of the transcription, but it’s not entirely unintelligible so I kept it. Feel free to comment other suggestions.

ソレは得体の知れぬモノだった
人々は恐れ 厭い 壊した

sore wa etai no shirenu mono datta
hitobito wa osore itoi kowashita

What arrived that day, no one could fathom —
So taken with fear and disgust, humanity struck it down

so now we’re
going over again
now let the serious
save our lives
we stay rolling
forget back
coming at us
from the skies
yeah fight!

恐怖心は彼らを残酷にした
バラバラの体を集めて泣いた

kyoufushin’ wa karera wo zan’goku ni shita
barabara no karada wo atsumete naita

Fear had made them cruel — but I was who wept
Picking up the pieces of my fallen self

I should have a look
tower bigger
hey bogey
so you’re who I
think you?
answer my
question
why this thing
disgusts?
how can I
ever listen?
I will
no more
forever never

夜がまた…
誰にも誰にも見えぬように
必死に全てを隠し
震えて怯え、それでもなお
赦されず

yoru ga mata
dare ni mo dare ni mo mienu you ni (can’t see me hide)
hisshi ni subete wo kakushi (what save me safe)
furuete obie sore demo nao (take off forever)
yurusarezu (go!)

Night falls again…
As I raced desperately to hide all I could
and keep everything out of sight
I shivered in fear, but even so…
I was never allowed peace

終わることのない厭悪に塗れ
自分の姿を 声を恨んだ

owaru koto no nai en’o ni nure
jibun’ no sugata wo koe wo uran’da

Painted over with unquenchable detest
I cursed my own form and voice

hey listen to a rapping arise
because the money’s
everybody are lies
fear me take you a enemy die
until you’re falling like a UFO
so fight!

この手さえ、脚さえ 尾さえ無ければ
呪われた、何故なの 私の定め

kono te sae ashi sae osaenakereba
norowareta naze na no watashi no sadame

If only I didn’t have these hands, feet and tail…
Why am I so cursed? Is this just my fate?

no one’s gonna save me and
no one’s gonna tell me
afraid of being bogey
see perfect one
if I could release me
the answer’s gonna tell me
so everywhere you shell me
for it
so you fight me!

夜はまた…
誰にも、誰にも知れぬように
鳴き声すらも疎まれ
私を消してしまいたい
空に啼いた

yoru wa mata
dare ni mo dare ni mo shirenu you ni (what is I can)
nakigoe sura mo utomare (you race after me)
watashi wo keshiteshimaitai (this every time!)
sora ni naita (!!)

Night falls again…
As I raced desperately to hide all I could,
Knowing none would respond to my cries with grace
I still raised my voice to the sky and screamed,
“I want to erase my entire being!”

落ちてく夢だった
飛行船のような
どこまで落ちれば
救いはあるのでしょう

ochiteku yume datta
hikousen’ no you na
doko made ochireba
sukui wa aru no deshou?

I dreamt I was falling
Like an airship —
How far do I have to fall
Until I find salvation?

夜はまた
ねぇ誰か ねぇ誰か教えてよ
答えを持たない苦悩は
私は私が見えない
永遠に

yoru wa mata (you’ll be never again)
nee dareka nee dareka oshiete yo (be saving for)
kotae wo motanai kunou wa (attack forever)
watashi wa watashi ga mienai (fight you like death!)
eien’ ni (!!)

Night falls again…
Someone! Anyone! Please tell me what to do!
Without an answer, I’m in so much pain
I cannot see myself anymore,
and doubt I ever will again…
