Egoistic Hero

Circle: 岸田教団 & THE明星ロケッツ
Arrange: 岸田 (Kishida)
Vocal: ichigo
Album:
GATE~それは暁のように~
Original Arrangement

Dedicated to a very special person.
I don’t really know which album this is from, i was told it came with the opening of GATE.
Anyways if someone has the full version of this song pleeeaaase send it to me, couldn’t find it anywhere.
Also, a rather liberal translation this time but i’m quite happy with it.

*意味ないよ 変えるんだ: change this a little bit, changed 変えるんだ (go back) into “restore”
*一手で決める覚悟で: i can’t say for sure whether 一手 really means “hand” in this case. anyhow the message stays the same
*
苦くも辛くもない勝利: is it “a close victory” in english? i actually don’t know how to say it
*かませ: i just assume it derives from (kamasu)
* 鮮やかな: lit. “brilliant”


こっからここまでが正しいって誰かが決めたって
見てろ、偉くも凄くもないと今から証明するから
立てろフラッグを 掲げよう理想と信条を
拘ることさ 我儘に決めていくほうがずっと楽しいから
kokkara koko made ga tadashii tte dareka ga kimeta tte
mitero, eraku mo sugoku mo nai to ima kara shoumei suru kara
tatero furaggu wo kakageyou risou to shinjou wo
kodawaru koto sa wagamama ni kimete iku hou ga zutto tanoshii kara

from here to here, someone has just decided what’s right
look, i’ll prove to you right now that it’s neither great nor brilliant
stand up, i’ll hoist my flag along with my ideals and beliefs
because it’s much more fun being obsessed with the egoism i choose

負けないような生き方もあるって?
言ってろ、希望も野望もないって聞こえるぜ
変わっていくのを待つなんて
意味ないよ 変えるんだ
流れを読め最初の一手で決める覚悟で
makenai youna ikikata mo aru tte?
ittero, kibou mo yabou mo nai tte kikoeru ze
kawatte iku no wo matsu nante
imi nai yo kaerunda
nagare wo yome saisho no itte de kimeru kakugo de

is there a way of life that won’t make me lose?
i tell you, it doesn’t sound like ‘hope’ or ‘ambition’
i’m still waiting for a change
i want to restore its meaning
reading the flow, i clench my fist and make up my mind

この轟音にいっそ我を失ってしまえよ
勝ち上がっていく人生に
意味なんてあるかわからない?
この轟音に我を失ってしまえたら
負けるよりはマシだって進めるさ
kono gouon ni isso ware wo ushinatte shimae yo
kachi agatte iku jinsei ni
imi nante aru ka wakaranai?
kono gouon ni ware wo ushinatte shimaetara
makeru yori wa mashi datte susumeru sa

i would rather lose myself inside this roar
the life that wins and rises
is meaningful, don’t you know?
if i came to lose myself in this roar then
even moving on is better than giving up

どっから損だって切り捨てようとしたって構わない
行けよ、苦くも辛くもない勝利を舐めてりゃいいだろ
かませブラフを 賭けよう情熱も時間も全部
信じることさ 自分で選んだ 根拠なんていらない
dokkara son datte kirisuteyou to shitatte kamawanai
ike yo, nigaku mo karaku mo nai shouri wo nameterya ii daro
kamase burafu wo kakeyou jounetsu mo jikan mo zenbu
shinjiru koto sa jibun de eranda konkyo nante iranai

from somewhere , even if i threw away my loss, i don’t care
go ahead, it’s alright, taste a victory that’s neither bitter nor close
smash the bluff you bet on, your passion, your time, everything
i myself chose to believe therefore i don’t need any reason

求めないようにって言い聞かせて注げない
そんなのを愛なんて呼べないだろう
motomenai you ni tte iikikasete sosogenai
son’na no wo ai nante yobenai darou

don’t flood me with persuasions like “you don’t even want it“
i don’t think we could possibly call that “love“

この轟音にいっそ我を失ってしまえよ
無くしていくだけの人生に
意味なんてあるかわからない?
この轟音に我を失ってしまえたら
奪うよりはマシだって笑えるさ
kono gouon ni isso ware wo ushinatte shimae yo
nakushite iku dake no jinsei ni
imi nante aru ka wakaranai?
Kono gouon ni ware wo ushinatte shimaetara
ubau yori wa mashi datte waraeru sa

i would rather lose myself inside this roar
the one life that loses everything,
is meaningful, don’t you know?
if i came to lose myself in this roar then
even laughing it off is better than being deprived

スタートの合図を気にしない君を誰かが笑ったって
ストップの声が聞こえないその集中力を叱られたっていいさ
飛び込んで掴むんだ 鮮やかなイメージを
さあ「ここから世界が始まっていく」って
sutaato no aizu wo kinishinai kimi wo dareka ga waratta tte
sutoppu no koe ga kikoenai sono shuuchuu ryoku wo shikarareta tte ii sa
tobikonde tsukamunda azayakana imeeji wo
saa ‘koko kara sekai ga hajimatte iku’ tte

‘nevermind the start signal‘ someone said while smiling at you
but i can‘t hear the voice telling me to stop, even if my concentration was scolded
so i start flying and try to grasp the fleeting images
now, i can say “the world starts right here and now“
