lynch. – IDOL

Kanji

Translation

 

[What you] IMAGINE is like an infectious disease, digitalized MONKEYS

stare at an image pointing with their finger.

“I know all about you*

that’s what you want, it’s fine like that, right? Your beloved princess.

 

So, with your selfish fantasies, you try to create me,

and inside what you imagined there’s blood flowing.

But try to understand at least this: that is not me,

I’m not your personal toy.

 

I’m not some kind of dancing doll.

 

This people who have nothing to do are getting worse, it’s a spreading disease,

inside their palm there is a world.

“I made you* grow up”

that’s what you want, it’s fine like that, right? Your beloved mommy.

 

With an even more crazy fantasy, you try to create me,

and in your mindless rush there’s blood flowing.

But try to understand at least this: that is not me,

I’m not your personal toy.

 

Don’t spread around rumours of our fake love.

 

So, with your selfish fantasies, you try to create me,

and inside what you imagined there’s blood flowing.

But try to understand at least this: that is not me,

I’m not your personal toy.

 

I’m not some kind of dancing doll.

 

With your crazy fantasies, you try to create me,

and the risk of doing that alone is the only beautiful thing.

But try to understand at least this: that is definitely not me,

I’m not your personal toy who gives you a beautiful smile that nobody knows of.

 

Don’t spread around rumours of our fake love.

 

Notes and Other

Words in Italic are in English in the original lyrics.

*= the term used here is way too endearing in this context and sounds plain disgusting.

The title is pretty straightforward, but I don’t know if the song is sung from the perspective of a common ideal or by the personal point of view of the singer: if I had to guess, I’d say the second one.
