YAPOOS – URGENT NOTICE [KYUUKOKU] (1992)

lyrics by JUN TOGAWA | music by YUICHI KANO

I actually forgot I had this one of Dadada-ism left too. Whoops!

Translation and notes under the cut:

An urgent notice like a sudden strike from behind
To the back of my head with a blunt weapon

Wow, awful, great, crazy
Do you want to force it through? It’s too sudden

An urgent notice like gallons of tears
Flowing like a crumbling reservoir dam

Wow, awful, great, crazy
Are you gonna force it? My flesh and blood will endure

From that perspective the night is kind
Because in this state you’re not bathed in dazzling light
The darkness holds you close and tells you it’s a bad dream

In that sense, the night is indeed kind
Just like you were until yesterday, these few years
The approaching despair is too sudden; I don’t know how I feel
The presented reality is too sudden; I don’t know how I feel

If you believe in eternity and act unprepared
An urgent notice like your throat’s been slit

Wow, awful, great, crazy
Don’t be absurd! A heavy feint

From that perspective the night is kind
Because in this state you’re not bathed in dazzling light
The darkness holds you close and tells you it’s a bad dream

In that sense, the night is indeed kind
Just like you were until yesterday, these few years
The approaching despair is too sudden; I don’t know how I feel
The presented reality is too sudden; I don’t know how I feel
