Favorite Lyrics?

Since I collect CDs, I always like looking at the booklets for the lyrics. Visual kei lyrics can definitely be all over the place from severely muddled Engrish to as elegant and difficult to understand as traditional poems. I’m wondering what all of your favorite lyrics are?

Speaking for myself, AIOLIN’s lyrics are always my favorite. AIOLIN has a lot of songs that are love stories, usually sad since that’s part of the concept, and they always have beautiful poetic lyrics. However, within AIOLIN’s songs my favorite lyrics are definitely Error World, Message, and Snowdrop. My favorite lines of Error World are 「君に好きと伝えたら世界が壊れてしまうから」(If I told you I love you, the world would break) and 「毒林郷の様な恋の味」(The taste of love is like a poisonous apple). It’s hard to pick out lines from Message and Snowdrop because they’re both written for the fans, but I do really like the first half Snowdrop’s final sabi「何回掛け違ったって/ずっと会えると思っていた/あの場所で/あのHomeで」 (No matter how many times our paths crossed/I thought that we’d always be able to meet/At that place/At our home). I’ve always liked how AIOLIN’s live is our home.

I’m not a person who’s really into reading lyrics’ translation, but during the past few weeks I’ve been watching and rewatching Dir en grey’s subbed “Ash” PV mostly because of its lyrics.

Dir en grey - Uroboros
The whole album.

Except Reiketsu Nariseba.

The island song

Come along with me
And the butterflies and bees
We can wander through the forest
And do so as we please
Come along with me
To a cliff under a tree

Reckless driving cucumber
The Gazette - Filth In The Beauty

probably Schwarz Stein’s new vogue children tbh

Moi dix Mois
Perish!
Indigo bleeding sky A closed illusion
Farewell to the dying
Deep foggy darkness Closed hallucinations
Beautiful wreckage that changes
Your lie perish and die
Cause of evil in you
Be destroyed
Ah, the moon is crying
Sinking in the shimmering darkness
Ah, the tentative love is dominated by the moon
Danced by the shimmering shadows
The faintly distorted sky, the collapsing reality
For those who betray, break up with a smile
Your lie perish and die
Ah, the tentative love is dominated by the moon
Danced by the shimmering shadows
Kageriyuku Tsuki is a fragment of tears
Sink into the shimmering darkness
Ah, the tentative love is guided by the moon
Torn by a colorful shadow
The moon that goes down is your figure
Reflected in the glittering darkness
Ah, the tentative love is dominated by the moon
Danced by the shimmering shadows :heart: :kissing_heart:
