Intro

Hey Ho (⌒‐⌒)♪

It took me such a long time to finish the translation of ♪ 銃声 (Juusei) even though I promised to do it right away when I published my translation of ♪ 黒い雨 (Kuroi Ame). I’m really sorry! I was busy traveling with a friend…
Gomen (。-人-。)

However, now it’s finally done! I’ve been in love with this song from the very first second I listened to it. And after completing my translation I love it even more. The music is captivating, but so are the lyrics and Lime’s writing skills. I just love how critical Lime is!

Enjoy(。⌒◡⌒。)v

Original Lyrics

銃声 (Juusei)

破けたワンピース裸足で歩いていく
Yabuketa wanpiisu hadashi de aruiteiku
その子が道で強請るシャボンが欲しいと言う
Sono ko ga michi de nedaru shabon ga hoshii to iu
汚れた体じゃ売れないから
Yogoreta karada ja urenai kara
明日も生きてはいけないから
Ashita mo ikite wa ikenai kara
果てなく歩いていく
Hatenaku aruiteiku

銃声が午後の知らせをしてくれる
Juusei ga gogo no shirase o shitekureru
心も耳も慣れてしまった
Kokoro mo mimi mo narete shimatta
生きることを持て余した僕等は
Ikiru koto o moteamashita bokura wa
死んだふりをして遊んでいる
Shindafuri o shite asondeiru
この夜が明けるまで
Kono yoru ga akeru made

LALALA…
幸せが何かも解らない僕等は
Shiawase ga nani ka mo wakaranai bokura wa
病んで病んで病んで狂っている
Yande yande yande kurutteiru

野良猫に餌を撒く ふと両手を出した
Noraneko ni esa o maku Futo ryoute o dashita
老夫婦が僕にそのパンをくれと言う
Roufuufu ga boku ni sono pan o kure to iu
ポケットの中の金を全て
Poketto no naka no kane o subete
渡しても何も変わらないみたいだ
Watashitemo nani mo kawaranai mitai da
手遅れのようだ
Teokure no you da

銃声のない国で君は撃たれる
Juusei no nai kuni de kimi wa utareru
心の風穴は治りにくい
Kokoro no kazaana wa naorinikui
生きることを持て余した僕等の
Ikiru koto o moteamashita bokura no
痛みはどれも陰湿なモノ
Itami wa doremo inshitsu na mono
ほらまた命 落ちていく
Hora mata inochi Ochiteiku

LALALA…
幸せが何かも解らない僕等は
Shiawase ga nani ka mo wakaranai bokura wa
病んで病んで病んで狂っている
Yande yande yande kurutteiru

Sing a song for the world
Sing a song for my life

English Lyrics

Gunshots

Walking around barefoot in a torn-up dress
The girl is begging on the streets asking for soap
Since if her body is dirty it won’t sell well so
She won’t be able to live on tomorrow so
She walks around without end

The sound of gunshots announcing the afternoon
Their hearts and ears are already used to it
But we, who don’t know what to do with our lives
Are fooling around and playing dead
Until this dawn breaks

LALALA…
We, who don’t realize our luckiness at all
Suffer, and suffer, and suffer, and go mad

I scatter bait for the stray cats Suddenly two hands reach out
And an old couple asks me to give them that bread
The money in my pockets, even all of it
Giving it to them won’t change a thing
It looks like it’s already too late

In the country without gunshots, you are shot
The bullet holes of your heart are incurable
We, not knowing what do with our lives,
All of our distress is a wicked act
Look! Another life is Fading

LALALA…
We, who don’t realize our luckiness at all
Suffer, and suffer, and suffer, and go mad

Sing a song for the world
Sing a song for my life

Translation Notes

銃声
Gunshots

銃声 (Juusei) meaning “gunshots / (gun) report” is the sound of a gunshot. I translated it as “gunshots” in the title but also as “sound of gunshots” in the lyrics.

 

汚れた体じゃ売れないから
Since if her body is dirty it won’t sell well so

Literally translated it is actually “Since a dirty body can’t be sold” or “Since a dirty body won’t sell well“.

じゃ (ja) means “then, well, so, …”, but here it just emphasizes what is said. That’s why I didn’t include it in my translation.

 

銃声が午後の知らせをしてくれる
心も耳も慣れてしまった
The sound of gunshots announcing the afternoon
Their hearts and ears are already used to it

〜てくれる (~tekureru) indicates that something is done for someone or given to someone. So a more accurate translation might be “The gunshots announcing them that…”. It could also be “announcing her” or “announcing me/us” and so on, since the speaker/person isn’t defined.

Same thing for 心も耳も (Kokoro mo mimi mo) which I translated as “Their hearts and ears are…”. It could also be “Her heart” or “Our hearts” or just “The hearts and ears”, etc.

Since it’s not 100% clear I omitted it in the first sentence. However, I used “Her” in the second one so that this sentence doesn’t start with the same word.

 

ポケットの中の金を全て
渡しても何も変わらないみたいだ
The money in her pocket, even all of it
Giving it to them won’t change anything

A better translation might be “Even if I gave them all of the money in my pocket, it wouldn’t change anything” or “Even giving them all of my money in my pocket won’t change anything“.

I’m not sure, but I hope my English translation makes it clear enough that she is in a hopeless situation.

It might also be interesting to know that the 手を出す (te o dasu) part prior to these two lines means “to put out one’s hand”, but also “to make a move into violence“.

 

生きることを持て余した僕等の
痛みはどれも陰湿なモノ
We, not knowing what do with our lives
All of our distress is a wicked act

In my translation Lime’s writting skills got a bit lost, unfortunately. So I’d like to touch on this part.

There’re two very similar parts
生きることを持て余した僕等は
Ikiru koto o moteamashita bokura wa
死んだふりをして遊んでいる
Shindafuri o shite asondeiru

and

生きることを持て余した僕等の
Ikiru koto o moteamashita bokura no
痛みはどれも陰湿なモノ
Itami wa doremo inshitsu na mono

The first one ending with 僕等は (bokura wa) translates as “We, who don’t know what to do with our lives are playing dead and mess around“.

The first line of the second verse is identical but ends with 僕等の (bokura no) which translates as “our“. And so the sentence actually continues in the next line “our distress” or “our pain“. So it actually means something along the lines of “The pain of us, who don’t know what do do with our lives, all of that pain is a wicked act“.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t figure out how to keep the sentence structure and translate it in a good way. That’s why my translation isn’t as beautifully connected as Lime’s original lyrics. But now you know at least!
(⌒‐⌒)♪

痛み (itami) can be translated as “pain“, “grief“, “distress“, etc. I decided to go with distress.

Hey. I'm Alex. I've been living in Japan since 2015. Before moving to Tokyo, I traveled through Japan for 7 months to visit all 47 prefectures. Traveling and staying in Japan has been so much fun and such an incredible experience that I decided to write about it. I noticed there isn't a lot of information about hot springs and onsen towns in Japan, so I'm focusing on this topic. Hopefully, my articles will help you to get the most out of your trip and to fully enjoy your time in Japan! Alex
