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.
