「条件反射」English Translation

「条件反射」伊野尾慧

A “conditioned reflex” is a reaction that a person has to learn, it’s not something they are naturally born with. Some of the earliest experiments around this kind of “conditioning” were done by Pavlov and his dog

In his solo, Inoo uses this “conditioning” theme in a nasty, slutty way, telling his partner to treat him badly because he has been “conditioned” to feel pleasure from this pain. The song is full of lots of dog references too which I find really cute/clever. 

Original Japanese → UtaTen


You’re a mess, I hate you, You need to be trained

(Whatever you want)

I can’t hear you, Do it again, Tell me what you want

(So crazy, Harder, Faster, Deeper, more)

 

I love the face you make when you’re hungry

When you strip away all reason I’m a male after all*

(Let’s go, Tonight’s the night, It’s gonna be alright)

Resist your instincts, You won’t need them

 

Whispering about love is nonsense

 

Oh Baby

Want me, Drive me crazy, Just the way you are

While the conditioned reflex etched in me corrupts me with pain

“Evening blows through this town at 2am” Think what you want

“Morals like the eye of a needle” Give in to the pleasure

 

Tonight, we own the night

 

A rope is fine, Tie me up, I won’t run away

(Show no mercy)

Don’t look at me with those flirty eyes Tell me what you want

(Bow wow, Give me more)

 

The way you pierce me feels so good

 

Oh Baby

Crying like an animal, Pity me more, Walk all over my train of thought

Because it’s a conditioned reflex I can’t stand it any more

“Evening blows through this town at 2am” Think what you want

“Morals like the eye of a needle” Give in to the pleasure

 

Oh yes Oh yes

I can’t be without you

 

You’re a mess, I hate you, You need to be trained

(Anything is fine)

Seeing my bowl left empty pleases me

 

Want me, Drive me crazy, Just the way you are

While the conditioned reflex etched in me corrupts me with pain

“Evening blows through this town at 2am” Think what you want

“Morals like the eye of a needle” Give in to the pleasure

 

*t/n: the word Inoo uses here for male is 雄・おす・osu which is only used when talking about the sex of animals. Fun fact: it’s all the same kanji for the 雄・ゆう・yuu in Yuya’s name… 💙💜
