And the world spins.
(Terrorism is just “terror” in Japanese)
So I could say a lot in here. I could talk about the vow I made after Lost One or mention how many times I had to key this down (haha seriously). I could whine forever, but I’ll leave it at that because I truly love this song. The tune is catchy, sure, but I’m talking more about what it tries to say. The “voice” in this song is so personal and conversational yet still begs difficult questions. When you’re unable to pick yourself up again, and unwilling to fight, what do you do? Start a revolution? What is the answer?
Kotaete okure yo!
sorry, I love some of neru’s work. Even the open-endedness.
I might have covered Terror with the sole purpose of sharing it with people heh.
So if you find yourself humming this when you’re down like me, I really urge you to read the original translations, see what I might’ve lost in reworking them, and take away your own meanings. I swear it’s worth it.
If you’re super interested, these characters are repeated from neru’s “Sekai Seifuku” album: Hanpen (boy): Kanashimi no Nami ni Oboreru Yuu (girl): Yasashii Hito ni Naritai
And if you’re just completely enthralled by all of this, Coleena has translated both of these songs on her tumblr and knows this stuff way more!
PS. Thank you again Coleena for helping encode at the last second and providing that archive of your files! ; 7 ;

Tried to write a letter full of things I never really Thought about in words before Wanna send it to the person I become and Maybe one day it’ll reach the door
But where is it supposed to go? And where am I? I don’t even know Never wondered much But now I’m stuck with all these funny feelings
Turned into the kind of person you had always hated? Well I wonder how it feels To hear the heavens laughing at you as they Point their fingers down at you and start to jeer
“Why don’t you shut your ugly mouth and just go?” “Don’t wanna see you! Get outta my way!” All the bitter things Start to hurt a little more and turn you grey
Couldn’t take all of it in, blinded from love, turned away To be stuck facing these walls, true terrorism stays I’m always singing out a tune No, screaming ‘til I’m blue and cry To hear you think and say that all of it’s a lie You wouldn’t mind then if I fire away? To feel the weight?
So now we’re getting ready steady go! Returning what they throw Reaching for every single dream they answered with a “no” Betting it all, my heart, upon this Resistance! So go and make a joke and get it out! But see who’s laughing now? Leading a rally on a life, coup d’etat And by the end, we’d find out that nobody wins A brand new day to show we can fight back
Ya know, I always thought that all the things around me would be different if I wrote a song Giving all I had inside me, ain’t it crazy how amazingly I went along?
“I’ll rule the world and do it all on my own” Nobody really talks about that, you know? Guess it’s really true Even stupid people wouldn’t dream of that
Couldn’t leave or get away, running from fear in the crowd All I heard was empty, letting terrorism out So they would leave me here to stay No, I would run away from them If it’s the only chance that I’ve got left And if I’m standing on a crumbling hill Would you forgive?
So now we’re getting ready steady go! Returning what they throw Leaving behind the voices keeping you down with a “no” Crying to you for help, I’m going down Mayday! So go and make a joke and get it out! But see who’s laughing now? Started a fire from a room, now rising on up And by the end, we’re fighting ourselves not big men A brand new day to show we can break out
So even if you’re broken up inside You gotta stand and fight ‘Cause it’s the only heart you’ve got and might’ve forgotten That a life shines brightly, that’s what makes it life!
So even if you’re tearing at the seems or falling to your knees Just remember that it shows you’re trying to move ahead And by the end, the people who laugh aren’t your friends And yet even then, the world goes around and starts over again Don’t you know? Don’t you know? Reply to me and tell me so!
