YAPOOS – GO! LOLITA IN CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER [SORE IKE! LOLITA KIKI IPPATSU] (1995)

lyrics by JUN TOGAWA | music by YUICHI KONO

Togawa really likes the whole secret agent thing, as it makes another appearance here on HYS. The trumpets on the studio version really make the whole thing for me.

Translation and notes under the cut:

I grip my Walther PPK with both hands (1)
Can’t take a single step out of my room
My anxiety throbs in my chest
I was trained to be alone, but –

Everything outside in the world seems like my enemy
It feels like they’re all angry at me

My teeth chatter as my anxiety grows worse
It feels like I’m being targeted by a mob

Senses of guilt and victimization
Rush forward to attack in tandem
My teeth chatter as my anxiety grows worse
I was trained to deal with trouble, but –

Everything outside in the world seems like my enemy
I feel as if I am so detested that I develop a bloodlust

Senses of guilt and victimization
Rush forward to attack in tandem

As if you’re guarding a trembling girl
Please protect me, oh Walther PPK


1: A Walther PPK is a small semi-automatic pistol used by a number of different organizations, most notably Nazi Germany, but later came to prominence as James Bond’s gun of choice.
