SAPPUKEI English Translation

SAPPUKEI, Tastelessness
By NUMBER GIRL
Lyrics and Music by Mukai Shutoku

———-

現在位置の自覚をせんと
結果は容易に予想できる
都市ビル天狗が飛んだよ
新宿でオレはそれを見たよ

殺す風景!!
生かす風景!!
殺す風景!!
生かす風景!!

殺す風景見たのはオーサカの橋の上に
座り込んでオレはくだらん
孤独主義者だった!!

殺す風景!!
生かす風景!!
殺す風景!!
生かす風景!!

AとBとの会話が不通
逃げ場のない貴様の苦痛
オレを弁護するヤツがいない
その自尊心との闘いはいつまで続く?

———-

genzai ichi no jikaku wo sento
kekka wa youi ni yosou dekiru
toshi biru tengu ga tonda yo
Shinjuku de ore wa sore wo mita yo

korosu fuukei!!
ikasu fuukei!!
korosu fuukei!!
ikasu fuukei!!

korosu fuukei mita no wa osaka no hashi no ue ni
suwarikonde ore wa kudaran
kodoku shugisha datta!!

korosu fuukei!!
ikasu fuukei!!
korosu fuukei!!
ikasu fuukei!!

A to B to no kaiwa ga futsuu
nigeba no nai kisama no kutsuu
ore wo bengo suru yatsu ga inai
sono jisonshin to no tatakai wa itsu made tsuduku?

———-

Relocate your awareness of the current situation, and
The outcome is easily predictable
Tengu flew over the city buildings
I saw it there in Shinjuku

Scenes of dying!!
Scenes of living!!
Scenes of dying!!
Scenes of living!!

I saw scenes of dying on Osaka’s bridges
My protests were worthless
I was an isolated ideologist!!

Scenes of dying!!
Scenes of living!!
Scenes of dying!!
Scenes of living!!

Conversation from A to B is suspended
There is no refuge for you in bitterness
I am not some advocating idiot
How long will the struggle against self respect go on?

———-

Note: Tengu are Japanese spirits, often portrayed as a type of bird. Mukai probably means to use them as opponents of pious Buddhist followers. For more info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tengu
