Go Fighter Lyric Translation

Here’s my version of YabuHika’s Go Fighter unit song. I love the dark, grungy lyrics and the overall “f💛💚k you” vibe.

Original Japanese: Utaten

English Translation

 

Always get back up Fighter

Sound the attack Soldier

Well then, let’s begin

 

I have a weak Boss right down in my heart

A freshly shaved head, naked like a slave

That’s why I’ll be told to “Dance!” again

A Birthday blown off with self-loathing determination

I’ll put together the parts with no Data A tiny peace sign

It’s fine to express things in messy words It’s fine to be ugly

I’m clearly on the verge of spitting it all out “This isn’t a joke”

 

Even if someone is laughing on the inside

Even if you’re drowned out by boring voices

Even if you’re left naked and thrown aside

 

It’s fine to mess around and scream ‘til your throat is crushed

Because everyone around you is so… *BEEP*

 

Everybody Go Fighter Fight now

Go Soldier Charge in

The static hum echoed

You were stabbed in the back

Go Fighter Because you can pick yourself back up again

 

Always Dive Feel the cold Knife

Feel the pleasure in your chest You’re Bound to this one bold chance

The goal needs no explanation Aim for the checkmate

 

With shaking body and shaking hands even the warriors will be set trembling

You’ll bewilder them at once, confuse them, are you weak or are you strong?

They’ll be put off balance Their Trump exposed

Back up Put the Tempo up to Update

Saying “because” you’ll be a complete idiot right from the start

 

You make a face that seems happy too

You seem to be proud of yourself in some way too

Kick out the darkness in the bottom of your heart

 

Tap, Rap, Back, coz anything goes”

Not yet not yet not yet not yet Oh *BEEP*

 

It’s different to that Even if you know it in your heart

Even if reason and reality are far away

The ideals they expressed were wafer thin

Not a single thing resonated with you

Go Fighter Never let go

 

Go to the next stage

Let’s move forward with us.

Let’s move forward with us.

All you have to do is follow me.

Take the challenge head on! *BEEP*

 

Everybody Go Fighter Fight now

Go Soldier Charge in

The static hum echoed

You were stabbed in the back

Laugh it off

 

It’s different to that Even if you know it in your heart

Even if reason and reality are far away

The ideals they expressed were wafer thin

Not a single thing resonated with you

Go Fighter Never let go

 

Keep your spirits up Fighter
