鬼門 ~ ダウト

「鬼門」
ダウト

心の奥に潜む鬼の素顔をお見せなさい
頭の中はとても晴れて ただ回想しております
心の奥に潜む鬼の素顔をお見せなさい
人の世など安易に壊れてしまうような民主主義であります
心の奥に潜む鬼の素顔をお見せなさい
みるみる内に顔が青ざめるほどの快感を覚えます
心の奥に潜む鬼の素顔をお見せなさい
「        」

すなわち我は無政府主義者でございます ご機嫌を取るものなど何も御座いません
眠前に澄み渡りしものは 終わりなき回転木馬遊具

心の奥に潜む鬼の素顔をお見せなさい
頭の中はとても晴れて ただ回想しております
心の奥に潜む鬼の素顔をお見せなさい
人の世など安易に壊れてしまうような民主主義であります
心の奥に潜む鬼の素顔をお見せなさい
みるみる内に顔が青ざめるほどの快感を覚えます
心の奥に潜む鬼の素顔をお見せなさい
「        」

幼少の頃思い描いたおりました理想郷がここにございましょうか?
強者が時代を牛取るご時世とは

すなわち我は無政府主義者でございます ご機嫌を取るものなど何も御座いません
眠前に澄み渡りしものは 終わりなき回転木馬遊具

‘Kimon’ {‘The Inauspicious’}*

Please show me the true face of the devil that lurks in the depths of your heart
The inside of my head is very clear, simply recollecting
Please show me the true face of the devil that lurks in the depths of your heart
There is democracy that can easily destroy people’s worlds
Please show me the true face of the devil that lurks in the depths of your heart
I recall a feeling so pleasant it makes my face turn pale in an instant
Please show me the true face of the devil that lurks in the depths of your heart
“        ”

That is to say, I am an anarchist.  Things such as currying favor do not exist
What’s perfectly clear before sleep is an endless merry-go-round*

Please show me the true face of the devil that lurks in the depths of your heart
The inside of my head is very clear, simply recollecting
Please show me the true face of the devil that lurks in the depths of your heart
There is democracy that can easily destroy people’s worlds
Please show me the true face of the devil that lurks in the depths of your heart
I recall a feeling so pleasant it makes my face turn pale in an instant

“        ”

Does the Utopia I imagined in my childhood exist here?
These times in which the strong cull the era

That is to say, I am an anarchist.  Things such as currying favor do not exist
What’s perfectly clear before sleep is an endless merry-go-round*

*The title can refer either to an unlucky direction or a person or thing to be avoided.
* Although the word for merry-go-round is written in Japanese (回転木馬), Kouki pronounces it as one would the English loan word (メリーゴーラウンド), which would normally be written in katakana.

  1. Here’s the romaji. But just so you know, the lyrics written in the booklet are not exactly what Kouki sings. Japanese changes depending on the level of formality, and this text is written in a very formal style while he sings in the casual form, so you’ll notice quite a lot of differences when comparing it to his singing.
