lynch. – ALLIVE Translation

Kanji

Translation

 

we arrived

 

I had a dream, I was together with you

inside a time so long we could almost get lost in it

 

Tonight, let’s make that dream come true

now bask into that light raining on you

 

Now, break through this place

shine and make my body burn

Reaching you, surpassing life to the brink of death

my heart thinks of you*

 

I had a dream, I was together with you

inside a time so long we could almost get crazy in it

 

I’ll make it come true, yes, for real

now bask into the future raining down on you

 

Now, break through this place

shine and make my body burn

Reaching you, surpassing life to the brink of death

my heart thinks of you*

 

Go forth, morph your body, yes, in something crazy

yes, we arrived

Devote all of you, become crazy

yes, we’re alive

 

Everyone holds onto one’s dream

and even if they won’t come true, they still fight,

that’s what’s called “living”, don’t you think?

For you, for me

 

Now, break through this place

shine and make my body burn

Reaching you, surpassing life to the brink of death

my heart thinks of you*

 

I imagine a dream for eternity*

 

Notes and Other

Words in Italic are in English in the original lyrics.

*= the words here are written using katakana and kanji, a writing style commonly found in ancient Japanese poetry which, supposedly, represent the truest form of expression of “the Japanese spirit”. In this case, it is a way for the composer to show that he’s earnestly writing to convey a sincere feeling of affection to the public.

A song written by lynch. right after most of the heavy restrictions for COVID-19 were lifted. During the lockdown the band started an amazing iniziative to raise money for the livehouses which, unable to provide a safe environment for concerts, were economically struggling. This song marks their comeback to live exhibition, playing on the pronunciation of  the word”allive”, which may sound as “we arrived” (we are back), “we’re alive” and “we are live”. I think the rest is pretty much self-explanatory.
