A.B.C-Z GAME OVER!!! Lyric Translation

GAME OVER!!! is the lead song for this year’s album. The whole theme of the song and album is that the end of something is just the beginning of something else. Just like when you die in a game and it asks if you want to “Continue?”, even when you fall down in life you keep on getting back up!

Check it out on Pony Canyon’s Youtube here -> GAME OVER!!!

Original Japanese: Utaten

English Translation:

GAME OVER!!! From here on! It’s the beginning! Until morning comes! 

The problems pile up until I’m over capacity and all I can do is wait for everything to come crashing down

Just like when you can’t make good progress in a video game, just the sense of being paralysed is enough to paralyse me

“Hey you over there, if you want to take them down 

Friendship Feelings Love Nerves You’ll need all of these things”

Before you know it anyone and everyone is living in the armour they made themselves 

Isn’t it heavy? Armouring yourself with logic Throw it all off tonight 

Let’s Go! 

Shall we go to love and romance? There’s no such thing as a LIFE without shame! 

Just when you think it’s over, it’s the start of something else

GAME OVER!!! (Tonight we’re tripping tripping tripping now)

More and more (HEY! continue! continue!

From here on (More shake it shake it shake it up!)

Go wild until the morning comes! 

The overtime at work continues and you swallow down your coffee and complaints 

You continue as a side character always staying at the same level

“Hey you over there, you don’t choose the best way to live 

Manager? Deputy Manager?  Modesty? Apology? You’ll need all of these things” 

Before you know it you’ll end up in the prison that you decide is the ideal adult 

Shall we go through the do’s and don’ts? There’s no such thing as a LIFE without wounds! 

We can’t help taking a break from time to time so shall we meet here again some day

GAME OVER!!! (Tonight we’re tripping tripping tripping now)

More and more (HEY! continue! continue!

From here on (More shake it shake it shake it up!)

Go wild until the morning comes! 

I wonder when it started? Lying about our feelings 

Almost everything has been given up on and left scattered 

Things are slow to get started 

That’s not the case! 

Laugh out loud! 

Let’s take it easy! Yeah

I realised long ago that we don’t have wings 

But even without them we can go anywhere! 

Shall we live one way or another? It’s fine to live a LIFE without direction! 

Let’s do something so big that you can’t comprehend it 

GAME OVER!!! (Tonight we’re tripping tripping tripping now)

More and more (HEY! continue! continue!

From here on (More shake it shake it shake it up!)

We won’t part until the morning comes
