共犯者 – English singable translation

Leave a comment

共犯者 Accomplices has to be one of the vocaloid songs that I really like (plus Kashitaro sang it!) I’ve been meaning to translate it for a while and finally got down to it. When I started the translation, I realised this song was really easy to translate into singable english lyrics so I decided to give it a shot. It surprised me how naturally everything came to me and this was one of the fastest song translations I’ve done and usually singable lyric translations are really difficult to being across the meaning as accurately as possible while keeping in tune.

It might not be the best out there, but here is my version. Enjoy!

ボタン一つで消える幻想 白昼、ビルは吹き飛んで
ほら、世界は恋に落ちた
最後の導線に火がついて 君はどんな歌を歌う?
今、世界は君の口からこぼれてはゆれる
澄み切った目の奥に時限式の景色
321で全てが終わるその前に
空想の都市の空を爆破して
未来なんて描いたら僕ら、まるで共犯者だ!
非常階段飛び降りてそのままさ
君の手を引いて逃げるんだ もっと、もっと、もっと
ねぇ、僕らこのままどこまで行けるだろうか?
別世界の果てまで来たら続きを聞かせて
怪獣めいた最終回が君をさらっていく
そんな悲しい終わりなんて今はいらない!
非常階段飛び降りてそのままさ、
君の手を引いて逃げるんだ 僕ら、まるで共犯者さ
こんな曇天模様みたいな気持ちもさ
吹き飛ばしてよ、そして僕ら もっと、もっと、もっと、もっと、もっと
もっと…

An illusion that fades with a press of a button, and the beer that disappears by midday

Hey look, the world has fallen in love

The last piece of wire caught on fire, what kind of song will you want to sing?

Right now, the world is tumbling right out of your mouth
In the depths of those crystal clear eyes, there exists a fleeting scenery

At the count of 321 before everything comes right to an end
Blow up the sky of the city in your fantasies with a bang

If we were to map out something like the future, it’s as if we’ve become accomplices!

If we were to jump off the emergency staircase and fall just like that,

I’ll be the one to grab your hand and escape More, more, more
Hey if we were to go on just like this, I wonder we will end up at, I really wonder

If we reach the end of another world, let me hear the continuation

If I become a beast and capture you, if that’s our finale

I don’t need that kind of dark and depressing at all, right now!
If we were to jump off the emergency staircase and fall just like that,

I’ll be the one to grab your hand and escape, together we’ll be just like accomplices

This kind of feeling that just resembles the cloudy, dull weather

I’ll just drive it away and then we’ll be more more more more more
More…
