How to annoy your colleagues

I can’t believe that I haven’t mentioned ALI PROJECT yet, ’cause I listen to them a lot and have done so for many years.

For some days ago I went on a meeting at work and forgot my bag containing my mobile at my working station. Apparently someone called me when I was away, and my ring-tone is nothing else but ALI PROJECT’s “Yuukyou Seishunka”. My workstation is located in a big open plan office, so approximate 50 other workers had to listen to this song on repeat for some minutes before someone decided to locate my bag and turn off the phone. *whoopsie*

But on the other hand, they shouldn’t complain; Yuukyou Seishunka is a great song!

Yuukyou Seishunka is probably most known as the opening theme to the very much popular anime “Code Geass”.

ALI PROJECT is a band that has been around for a while (they had their debut back in 1988!) and the lead singer Takarano Arika is actually the one who writes the lyrics.

It’s great so let’s listen to it!

Lyrics to Yuukyou Seishunka

Lyrics translated into English

As one walks an animal trail, roar out, “O lion, o tiger!”
My spiritual homeland is on the other side the glowing sky
Are weakness and rage enemies without form
To youth wandering in the solitude of imprisonment?
O Father, I still find you
Difficult to understand

When I chase the invisible backs
Of the brothers who precede me
On a night of confusion, Lucifer beckons me

Even if I should yearn for
A dream that ends not in death
It is you, whom are certain, who is my life

Life as a butterfly, as a flower in a violently windy wasteland
My spiritual homeland blooms together with the eternal spring
Even if my body is sullied, my chastity muddied
Please believe in the brocade of my spirit
O Mother, even if I
Should never show my tears
The dew in the grass beneath my feet will not vanish

The time has come at last
To know the meaning of my birth
At this moment, my flag of righteousness at least
Is drenched with blood

I simply loved you
And carved that into my chest
Embracing a tattoo-like wound

As one walks an animal trail, roar out, “O lion, o tiger!”
My spiritual homeland is on the other side the glowing sky
Is youth that fights as a chivalrous warrior
A being so very inexperienced that it is foolish?
O Father, I am still
Unable to protect one piece of love
So where is the truth in this transient world?

Live as a butterfly, as a flower in a violently windy wasteland
My spiritual homeland dances and falls in the eternal spring
Even if my body is sullied, my chastity muddied
Please believe in the brocade of my spirit
O Mother, one day
Award me with your honor

As one walks an animal trail, roar out, “O lion, o tiger!”
My spiritual homeland is the other side the glowing sky
Youth that fights with noble intent at its root
Is beautiful precisely because its time is short
O Father, one day I
Shall overcome you
The truth of this esteemed world shall be there


Lyrics in roman letters

Ikedomo kemonomichi shishi yo tora yo to hoe
Akane sasu sora no kanata ni mahoroba
Yuushuu no kodoku ni samayou seishun ha
Yowasa to ikari ga sugata naki teki desu ka
Chichi yo imada ware ha
Onore wo shirigatashi

As one walks an animal trail, roar out, “O lion, o tiger!”
My spiritual homeland is on the other side the glowing sky
Are weakness and rage enemies without form
To youth wandering in the solitude of imprisonment?
O Father, I still find you
Difficult to understand

Sakidatsu anira no
Mienai senaka wo oeba
Mayoi no hitoyo ni myoujou ha izanau

When I chase the invisible backs
Of the brothers who precede me
On a night of confusion, Lucifer beckons me

Shishite owaranu
Yume wo kogaredomo
Tashika na kimi koso waga inochi

Even if I should yearn for
A dream that ends not in death
It is you, whom are certain, who is my life

Reppuu no kouya de chou yo hana yo to iki
Tokoshie no haru ni sakisou maboroshi
Kondaku no junketsu kono mi ha yogoretemo
Kokoro no nishiki wo shinjite ite kudasai
Haha yo keshite ware ha
Namida wo misenedomo
Ashimoto no kusa ni tsuyu ha kiemosede

Life as a butterfly, as a flower in a violently windy wasteland
My spiritual homeland blooms together with the eternal spring
Even if my body is sullied, my chastity muddied
Please believe in the brocade of my spirit
O Mother, even if I
Should never show my tears
The dew in the grass beneath my feet will not vanish

Umareta igi nara
Yagate shiru toki ga koyou
Kono ima semete no giki
Chishio ni hitashi

The time has come at last
To know the meaning of my birth
At this moment, my flag of righteousness at least
Is drenched with blood

Tada kimi wo ai-shi
Mune ni kizanda
Shisei no you na kizu wo daite

I simply loved you
And carved that into my chest
Embracing a tattoo-like wound

Ikedomo kemonomichi shishi yo tora yo to hoe
Akane sasu sora no kanata ni mahoroba
Yuukyou no shi to nari tatakau seishun ha
Honoaoki hodo ni oroka na mono deshou ka
Chichi yo imada ware ha
Ai hitotsu mamorezu
Karisome no kono yo no makoto ha idzuko

As one walks an animal trail, roar out, “O lion, o tiger!”
My spiritual homeland is on the other side the glowing sky
Is youth that fights as a chivalrous warrior
A being so very inexperienced that it is foolish?
O Father, I am still
Unable to protect one piece of love
So where is the truth in this transient world?

Reppuu no kouya de chou yo hana yo to iki
Tokoshie no haru ni maichiru maboroshi
Kondaku no junketsu kono mi ha yogoretemo
Kokoro no nishiki wo shinjite ite kudasai
Haha yo itsuka ware wo
Sazukarishi homare to

Live as a butterfly, as a flower in a violently windy wasteland
My spiritual homeland dances and falls in the eternal spring
Even if my body is sullied, my chastity muddied
Please believe in the brocade of my spirit
O Mother, one day
Award me with your honor

Ikedomo kemonomichi shishi yo tora yo to hoe
Akane sasu sora no kanata ha mahoroba
Kouketsu no shi no moto tatakau seishun ha
Hakanaki toki yue utsukushiki mono to are
Chichi yo itsuka ware ha
Onore ni uchikatan
Toutobi no kono yo no makoto ha soko ni
