YAPOOS – NOT AFRAID OF A FALL FROM GRACE [HAITOKU NANTE KOWAKUNAI] (1988)

Lyrics and music by YOICHIRO YOSHIKAWA

Another track off of Daitenshi no you ni / Like an Archangel. Yoshikawa pulls double duty on this one, writing both the music and the lyrics. Sounds vaguely secret agent-y, with all the talk of passwords and stuff.

Translation and notes under the cut:

Push-on television set
Contact Venus
Sneak in to the system
Punch in the ID

Push on RING&RING
Connection to the main system

A television city unfolds riding UHF waves
Rumors expanding fractally
When you find the password
Just type it in, anyone can
You can press it, see, the silver button

Contact Venus
Login HAR 55
Password ZOO 9
Access

A swelling shadow mask, light in the primary colors
Repeating synchronization and polarization
A television megacity unfolds riding UHF waves
Rumors expanding fractally
When you find the password
Just type it in, anyone can
You can press it, see, the silver button
