Terror(ism) (Translyrics)

Tried to write a letter full of things I never really
Thought about in words before
Wanna send it to the person I become and
Maybe one day it’ll reach the door

But where is it supposed to go?
And where am I? I don’t even know
Never wondered much
But now I’m stuck with all these funny feelings

Turned into the kind of person you had always hated?
Well I wonder how it feels
To hear the heavens laughing at you as they
Point their fingers down at you and start to jeer

“Why don’t you shut your ugly mouth and just go?”
“Don’t wanna see you! Get outta my way!”
All the bitter things
Start to hurt a little more and turn you grey

Couldn’t take all of it in, blinded from love, turned away
To be stuck facing these walls, true terrorism stays
I’m always singing out a tune
No, screaming ‘til I’m blue and cry
To hear you think and say that all of it’s a lie
You wouldn’t mind then if I fire away?
To feel the weight?

So now we’re getting ready steady go! Returning what they throw
Reaching for every single dream they answered with a “no”
Betting it all, my heart, upon this
Resistance!
So go and make a joke and get it out! But see who’s laughing now?
Leading a rally on a life, coup d’etat
And by the end, we’d find out that nobody wins
A brand new day to show we can fight back

Ya know, I always thought that all the things around
me would be different if I wrote a song
Giving all I had inside me, ain’t it crazy
how amazingly I went along?

“I’ll rule the world and do it all on my own”
Nobody really talks about that, you know?
Guess it’s really true
Even stupid people wouldn’t dream of that

Couldn’t leave or get away, running from fear in the crowd
All I heard was empty, letting terrorism out
So they would leave me here to stay
No, I would run away from them
If it’s the only chance that I’ve got left
And if I’m standing on a crumbling hill
Would you forgive?

So now we’re getting ready steady go! Returning what they throw
Leaving behind the voices keeping you down with a “no”
Crying to you for help, I’m going down
Mayday!
So go and make a joke and get it out! But see who’s laughing now?
Started a fire from a room, now rising on up
And by the end, we’re fighting ourselves not big men
A brand new day to show we can break out

So even if you’re broken up inside
You gotta stand and fight
‘Cause it’s the only heart you’ve got and might’ve forgotten
That a life shines brightly, that’s what makes it life!

So even if you’re tearing at the seems or falling to your knees
Just remember that it shows you’re trying to move ahead
And by the end, the people who laugh aren’t your friends
And yet even then, the world goes around and starts over again
Don’t you know?
Don’t you know?
Reply to me and tell me so!

Lost One’s Weeping (Translyrics)


Feel it cutting into me, the doubting painful knife

Feel it deepening the rift, finally hit just right

Couldn’t take the love I had, so weak and burning low

But it grew into a weapon only hurting me, this I know

…is nonfiction

So good with numbers, science, math I like

But I’m terrible at English so I despise

This part of me that wants a simple “right or wrong”

And I feel that everything I choose will always be false

And today

This homework

About me

A blank sheet

Accomplished

Content with

This life I will now live

‘Til I think why are we

just sometimes no always

Saying how we’re sad and

Saying how we’re lonely?

Can you even read the blackboard written clear as can be?

Can you even read his mind? See that kid’s lost fantasy?

Can you even find the one who dyed his red heart to black?

Hey, who could it be?

Hey, someone tell me!

Can you even solve the question with your abacus yet?

Can you even stop the rope from hanging him by his neck?

Did we really choose it right saying we’re okay this way?

Hey, just tell me how
It’s not like I care now

Counting days like numbers, they all pass their prime

And again hypnotically swimming through time

Behind the power and guards I put up

I hide

Knowing they had long died

From problems

My resolve

Just can’t solve

That homework

Accomplished

Content with

This life I will now live

‘Til I think and he speaks

That demon inside us

Saying “let me just leave”

Saying “someone kill me!”

Can you even read the blackboard written clear as can be?

Can you even read his mind? See that kid’s lost fantasy?

Can you even find the one who dyed his red heart to black?

Hey, who could it be?

Hey, someone tell me!

Can you even solve the question with your abacus yet?

Can you even stop the rope from hanging him by his neck?

Did we really choose it right saying we’re okay this way?

Hey just tell me how

Hey just tell me how!

Can you even say the formula of area now?

Can you even scream the dreams you swore would never go out?

Who was the one who let my hopes just curl up die?

Hey, who could it be?

No, it’s gotta be…

Just open up your eyes, why don’t you grow up and see?

But what the hell is “growing up” and tell me when will I be?

Can a single person out there just explain it to me?

Hey, just tell me how

It’s not like I care now!
