Everlasting depression, this one page
Fleeting tactics, to those eyes
Without supplication, evil in law, connecting toward prison
Note with deadly poison, harboring fear at earthly desires
Incessant drool at delusional lies
Who knows how to break the deadlock?
World of acquittal
Words of sanction
An acquired fever, truly "death pirates"
Redeem the game of law
Despair the Billy
Now, morals
Come, unstoppable eraser rain
Despair the Billy
Now, morals
Come, unstoppable eraser rain
Crimson-colored song of destruction
Won't it end?
How long has it been half noise?
Have ya got "that" which lies dormant within society?
Who can overwrite it, the filth of the world?
The earth astir from a chain of annihilation
Master, obliteration, fated self-destruction
World of acquittal
Words of sanction
An acquired fever, truly "death pirates"
Redeem the game of law
Despair the Billy
Now, morals
Come, unstoppable eraser rain
Despair the Billy
Now, morals
Come, unstoppable eraser rain
Unstoppable eraser rain
Love, battle of wits, tension
Egoistically bent sadist
Iron hammer of fragmented evil
Lives snatched away
Saturated with scoundrels, urgent, murder of criminals
Verdict! "Human rights," "trouble," "hatred"
Repentance spilling viscera
Snickering shinigami, why this consequence?
Truth, no one knows the misery
KIRA!
We are the KIRA!
My name is KIRA!
Even you’re KIRA!
KIRA!
We are the KIRA!
My name is KIRA!
Even you’re KIRA!
Above is carnage of a dark funeral, truth, debate, peace, error, regret, many thousands of years, pity
Above is carnage of a dark funeral, truth, debate, peace, error, regret, many thousands of years, pity
Violence, turbulent times, despair and pain
Despair the Billy
Now, morals
Come, unstoppable eraser rain
Despair the Billy
Now, morals
Come, unstoppable eraser rain
Dancin' bloody heart
Love, the thunderous color tone is life
Dancin' bloody heart
Love, the thunderous color tone is life
It's an unstoppable fate, chained race

    General CommentWeither this song was made for Death Note or not it's irrelevant, but i don't think it was. Yes it talks about a note with deadly poison but i personally think it's reffering to..maybe a hit list? i think this song is talking about how murderous humans are. We are kira, im kira even you're kira. It saying it right there. we're all abunch of murderous bastards. the want to kill is in our blood, our instincts.
    Death Pirates is my favourite line ^-^

    General CommentIt is about death note. The Band wrote this and What's up people FOR death note (notice how they say "KIRA"? and "Eraser Rain"? -.- ). And Billy as in a random kid. Kinda like they're telling people that they should despair.

    General CommentYes, it is about Death Note because they wrote it for the studio, but I'd still like to point out that the word "Kira" does not exclusively belong to Death Note. Ultimately, Kira means Killer. It's just the Japanese transliteration of that English word. Because neither Kanji nor Kana can formulate that word, it's transliterated to Kira. It uses the Kana for KI and RA.

    General Commentzetsubou also can mean hopeless so I think "zetsubou billy" is just calling a guy named billy hopeless meaning there is no hope. This song was written for Death Note but as the guy said before KIRA is another word for Killer. Kira from death note possibly got his name from that and it's just a huge coincidence that this song has that word in it.

    General CommentGuys, billy is short for william. William means," protector." The song means " the protector's despair," or " the protector in despair."
