ONE OK ROCK's カラス Translation

I want to say that ever since I heard this single the first time, I've been trying to figure out whether KARASU meant "curse" or "class." Turns out if I would have taken ten seconds to look it up, I would have learned that it's japanese for "crow."

Fail, Mousie. Fail.

as always, corrections welcome.


カラス
KARASU
CROW

歌:ONE OK ROCK 作詞:TAKA 作曲:Alex・Taka

早朝のゴミ捨て場所には
しのぎ合って生きる黒い鳥達
それと僕らダブらせてみて
悲しい世界で生きていると確信

souchou no GOMI sutebasho ni wa
shinogi atte ikiru kurai toritachi
sore to bokura DAGUrasete mite
kanashii sekai de ikiteiru to kakushin


At a dump site in the early morning
the black birds that live there and meet on the ridges
and with them we have to repeat ourselves
the belief that we're living in this sad world

表情一つ変えず首かしげ
黒い目の奥底は四面楚歌 嗚呼

hyoujyou hitotsu koezu kubi keshige
kurai me no okusoko wa shimensoka aa


Tilting their heads without changing their single expression
the depths of their black eyes, surrounded on all sides, yeah

泣いてるか笑ってるか ソレすら君らには分からない
この孤独抱きしめて 悲しさで体は真っ黒さ!!
この翼いつの日か 黒よか白へと変わっていって
内は悪魔 外は天使
これを作り出すのは so お前らさ!!

naiteru ka watteru ka SORE sura kimi ra ni wa wakaranai
kono kodoku dakishimete kanashisa de karada wa makkurosa!!
kono tsubasa itsu no hi ka kuro yoka shiro e to kowatteitte
naka wa akuma soto wa tenshi
kore wo tsukuridasu no wa so omaera sa!!


whether you like it or not, even that, you all don't get it
embracing this solitude in sadness, my body, it's pitch-black!!
someday this black wing will be turning into white
inside, a devil, outside, an angel
I'm dreaming this up, so you all come on!!

ちょいとナメすぎたみたいだな!
オレらは全部覚えてる
あの日お前らにされたコト
今日もあの電柱から見ているぞ

choito NAME sugita mitai da na!
ORE ra wa zenbu oboeteru
ano hi omaera ni sareta KOTO
kyou mo ano denchou kara miteiru zo


Seems a little too much poison, doesn't it!
Us, we'll find out everything
everything done by you on that day
even now we're watching from that telephone pole, yo

復讐の名をかりて
自らが上に立ち
そこから見る景色は汚いんだろうな 嗚呼

fukushuu no na wo karite
mizukara ga ue ni tachi
soko kara miru keshiki wa kitanai n darou na aa


Borrowing the name of revenge
I stand up for myself
the landscape I look out from, it's probably dirty, yeah

磨がれてた刀が今 指示されるでもなく抜かれてって
傷つけて気がつけば 取り返しのつかないことになる
僕は何で悲しくも この時代に生まれてきたんだろう?
自分すら制御できず まるで飛び方を忘れてるカラス

magareteta katana ga ima shiji sareru demo naku nukarete tte
kizutsukete ki ga tsukeba torikaeshi no tsukanai koto ni naru
boku wa nande kanashiku mo kono jidai ni umarete kita n darou?
Jibun suru seigyo de kizu maru de tobi hou wo wasureteru KARASU


the katana that's been polished now、the instruction is given but doesn't seem completed
if the feelings that've been hurt continue it'll become something that can't be undone
for me, even being sad, won't I have endured being born into this world?
the flaw in the control I've got over myself, a crow that's entirely lost its flightpath

The wing turns to white
I won't stop the fight

泣いてるか笑ってるか ソレすら誰にも分かりはしない
この孤独解き放って 誰かに伝えるべき白がある
この翼いつの日か 黒でも白でもなくなってって
形すら見えなくなって また新たな形作り出すのさ

naiteru ka watteru ka SORE sura darenimo wakari wa shinai
kono kodoku tokihanatte dareka ni tsutaeru beki shiro ga aru
kono tsubasa itsu no hi ka kuro demo shiro demo naku natte tte
hatachi sura mienaku natte mata atata na nanika tsukurudasu no sa


whether you like it or not, even that, nobody understands
setting this solitude free, the white that has to be transmitted exists
this wing someday whether the black turns white or not seems to be changing
even if it's becoming an unseen form, it's still something new I'm dreaming up

TN: Taka freaking pwns. I love the mental image of the crows all huddled on the telephone poles, watching like they're going to learn all his secrets. CREEPY YO. Also, I love the particle zo, even though as a girl i'm not allowed to use it.
