YAPOOS – MY GOD (1988)

lyrics by TOSHIRO SENSUI | music by MITSURU KOTAKI

The final song to be translated off of Like an Archangel / Daitenshi no you ni proper, not counting the as yet untranslated bonus track “Sample A,” which is coming soon, I promise. I have the song actually translated but I keep forgetting to bring the file over to my main computer.

This song wasn’t written by Togawa herself, but she does turn in a very fun and energetic vocal performance on it, which is always nice. The lyrics are a bit less… B-movie-esque than Sensui’s usual fare, which is either an improvement or a disappointment, depending on who you ask.

Translation and notes under the cut:

The darkness of a cavern of lost phantoms
Drawn into it – where is here? Wandering
Another me, wrapped up like fog
The echoes of a beating heart – My God!

My inner voice swells bottomlessly with a creeping anxiety
I’m gonna lose my head, searching for my shadow
My eyeballs flip back, searching for my flesh

Walking, guided by the far-away light
Is it the whispers of a Shinigami? How strange!
The bad habits of all of you here to take this flesh
And murmurs in a loud voice – My God!

My inner voice swells bottomlessly with a creeping anxiety
I’m gonna lose my head, searching for my shadow

I’m gonna lose my head – My God!
Searching for my shadow
My eyeballs flip back – My God!
Searching for my flesh, searching
