Kokoro no Sukima World

The World in the Cracks of your Heart

Romaji Lyrics

Ii ko butte bakari de nandaka tsukarechau desho?
Majime chan ni shiteireba nantoka tensuu toreru shi
Dakedo hontou wa unzari, gakkuri, donyori sonna toki
Kurayami omoidashi na yo

Dore dore mimimoto ni
Sotto fukikonde agemasho
Usotsuki gizensha wa
Son bakka suru mon sa

Hitohana patto saki na kuroi hana
Wakuwaku suru takurami ni nara
Dondon janjan waruchie ga waku
Kokoro no sukima no world

Ahaha atama no neji suppori hazurechimaeba
Ihihi inchiki zanmai nan ni mo teikou naku naru
Ufufu Un to ka en to ka chakkari, kossori sou yatte
Yo no naka mawatteru darou

Sora sora kachigumi ni
Ichiban ni naritai desho
Shosen wa keotoshite
Kanaeteiku mon sa

Mushamusha patto kurae kuroi hana
Tamashii wa nanbo de urimasho
Dareka no fukou wa mitsu no aji
Kokoro no sukima no world

Sore sore mata hitori
Sotto fukikonde agemasho
Usotsuki gizensha wa
Eraku mo nai sa tte

Mushamusha patto kurae kuroi hana
Tamashii wa nanbo de urimasho
Dareka no fukou wa mitsu no aji
Kokoro no sukima no…

Hitohana patto saki na kuroi hana
Wakuwaku suru takurami ni nara
Dondon janjan waruchie ga waku
Kokoro no sukima no world

English Translation

You’re done pretending to be good you’re getting so fed up it’s all such a chore
Just keep your head down and play nice so they say to build up some make-pretend score
Sometimes you wanna be rude and wanna be mean and say so much more
Ain’t that what the devil on your shoulder’s for?

Let me whisper right into your ear
Words to make your troubles just disappear
But they’re all hypocrisy and lies
Leading you right to your demise

So take the plunge into dark, and let those black flowers grow
You’ll be surprised when the evil inside lets you know
All the fun, all the vile, schemes are waiting for their start
In the depths of the world in the cracks of your heart

A-ha-ha, accept the appeal of antagonizing and turn your screw loose
Bwee-hee-hee. behold as beguiling becomes the best choice you have no excuse
C-see-see, complaining chance and circumstance are to blame they’re tightening the noose
Don’t you see that they’re what give the world its use?

Everyone just wants to be the best
Number one, and better than all the rest
If you wanna make that dream come true
Annihilation’s right for you!

All those black flowers you’ve bloomed, we’re gonna swallow them whole!
Why set a price when it’s so easy to sell your soul?
Oh the taste, of your pain, it’s so delicious and tart
In the depths of the world in the cracks of my heart

Watch another victim drawing near
Let me make your troubles just disappear
All my words hypocrisy and lies
Being evil is its own prize!

All those black flowers you’ve bloomed, we’re gonna swallow them whole!
Why set a price when it’s so easy to sell your soul?
Oh the taste, of your pain, it’s so delicious and tart
In the depths of the world in the cracks…

So take the plunge into dark, and let those black flowers grow
You’ll be surprised when the evil inside lets you know
All the fun, all the vile, schemes are waiting for their start
In the depths of the world in the cracks of our hearts

Okay, so this is a song from the upcoming Kyoryuger movie musical, GABURINCHO OF MUSIC~! I’m not intending to translate any of the other songs before the film comes out to give them context, but I imagine this song won’t have too much context so I can get away with it. Also, it owns.

I’ve gone for a translation in the full musical spirit that both scans with the original lyrics and has a rhyme scheme – which means it is a bit more liberal and loose than usual in terms of perfect accuracy to the Japanese (for example, I swap the line order in the first chorus to make it scan better, gasp.) I dunno how we’ll end up handling the actual film, but if worst comes to worst I will at least push to have a secondary sub track that does every song like this, fully singable in English.

But yeah, enjoy. Thanks also to the Onore crew for giving me feedback and stuffs.
