Vinushka

I exchange thoughts with the clouds
I hold my breath
Ahh, it's just hard shell you can't see
Is that where the bottom is? The shadow burns me
Ahh, I just want to keep forgetting
Slip your desires into the ants' nest
Come now, all you have to do now is be reborn again

Let tomorrow sleep and peacefulness will turn to you
Free yourself and go with your razor sharp emotions
Even the twisted flow is the proof that you're alive
I invite the tearfully-indulging sorrow

The inculated Dogra Magra
The pain of the mark and the one and only personality
And those colorful eyes all decorated I don't want them anymore
Is hypocrisy going to come and take it all away?
The lonely red stage at night
I dedicate the following to the aspiring leading actor
That's where the truth is

The small corner of my un-cheatable heart says "I still want to be here"
Who can't we forgive?
I let them hear my cold voice
And I swear

I will live with my work I scream with this body of flesh that separates heaven and hell
I carve the sins What will be the proof of my existence if it disappears with the wind?

"I've stared at the strong shining moon long enough to be bored
Can't even turn myself into a werewolf
But just enough to become crazy by the darkness
I want to suck the neck
The emptiness of the remains
I won't let you sleep
At the age where you just want attention... tonight, I might go crazy for you"

Everyone wants to reach out their hand and grab happiness
But they just end up becoming the monster that lies deep in darkness
The end has already come to life
It will take form at zero and will crawl back into the uterus and rot
Every time this happens, your faces crumble

No one wants to talk about the truth that hurts the ear
The suppressed minds

Compensate the sins and let life be gone

The emptiness of the antithesis
Becomes the choking and crying land
Bury the bones in the common land immersed in thesis
Be burdened by depression
The gritty tsunami takes me away and I smile with bitter tears
Couldn't understand the value of things
The hanging of the necks at the 13 stairs
Seeing people becoming friendly while clapping hands
That mixes in with sissy thoughts and hurts others
Seeing you like this, it's just too sad

Splash of blood
Squashing basic instincts
Talk about death

I will live with my work I scream with this body of flesh that separates heaven and hell
I carve the sins What will be the proof of my existence if it disappears with the wind?

No one wants to talk about the truth that hurts the ear
The suppressed minds

Compensate the sins, and let life be gone

Is it a sin for me to live because I am evil?

    General CommentI LOVE how in Gaika, Chinmoku ga Nemuru Koro, Red Soil, Vinushka how he goes berserk and starts making gargling noises. It like a mix between being suffocated, drowned, and trying to get enough air in your lungs because all week you've been eatting at Mc'Donalds.

    General CommentI'm kinda pissed cos I typed out my comment and my internet lagged and I have to re-do this. -.-

    Basically I don't understand the whole song, but with all reference to my history lessons and the video:

    The emptiness of the antithesis
    Becomes the choking and crying land
    Bury the bones in the common land immersed in thesis
    Be burdened by depression
    The gritty tsunami takes me away and I smile with bitter tears
    Couldn't understand the value of things
    The hanging of the necks at the 13 stairs
    Seeing people becoming friendly while clapping hands
    That mixes in with sissy thoughts and hurts others
    Seeing you like this, it's just too sad

    Splash of blood
    Squashing basic instincts
    Talk about death

    I will live with my work I scream with this body of flesh that separates heaven and hell
    I carve the sins What will be the proof of my existence if it disappears with the wind?

    Compensate the sins, and let life be gone

    Is it a sin for me to live because I am evil?

    ~~

    Ok so in Japan the government officially conceals a lot of the truth about WWII. To my knowledge they portray themselves as the absolute victims, being bullied by the Allies and all - correct me if I am wrong.

    What actually happened was that the military got hold of the government, who weren't able to suppress the army's increasing influence over the entire nation. throw in a wall street crash, protectionist policies of other nations, and the pride of the japanese - we get a rising sun out to conquer asia, and then the rest of the world.

    That's why (No one wants to talk about the truth that hurts the ear
    The suppressed minds)

    Now I'm Singaporean and perhaps I am biased, but I often hear stories about how the Japanese ill-treat civilians from whatever country they conquered. (we were a Brit colony, the English people made us surrender, they were too busy fending the Nazis off their land anyway) The Japanese occupation is always portrayed as a period of pain and suffering for us, where people are tortured, raped, and basically bullied very badly. Anybody heard of Sook Ching? A massacre indeed.

    And thus the reference to sinning and being evil.

    Still, there's much controversy over whether it was appropriate for the Allies to drop two atomic (refer to entire chunk of imagery that refers to the dropping of the bombs)on Japan. If I am not mistaken, radiation still plagues Nagasaki and Hiroshima up till today. The idea is that the younger generation weren't the ones who committed the "sins"; yet retribution befalls upon them.

    That should explain (Is it a sin for me to live because I am evil? )

    Also that line alone suggests that Dir en Grey, as they are Japanese themselves, admit that they weren't right to go around bullying China and the Southeast Asian nations.

    Hmm and one last part
    (Seeing people becoming friendly while clapping hands)
    I think this refers to the Allies celebrating over the successful dropping of Little Boy and Fat Man.

    if i read more out of this, I'll post them later.

    Dir en grey is awesome.

    My OpinionThat outburst at 4:40 makes me picture KYO in a Child Prey/Raccoon esque costume having a seizure while beating some corporate pig with his red metal stage platform to the beat of the song...

    General CommentDoes anyone know what he's saying at the "death Metal" part? It seems they're getting harder and harder to follow nowadays. XD But this album is quite easily the one to remove them from JRock. Well done

    General Commenti know i probably got this wrong
    but in the section of the song where kyo says
    "The inculated Dogra Magra
    The pain of the mark and the one and only personality
    And those colorful eyes all decorated I don't want them anymore
    Is hypocrisy going to come and take it all away?
    The lonely red stage at night
    I dedicate the following to the aspiring leading actor
    That's where the truth is"

    Was he talking about the fans that won't listen to dri en grey anymore because their style had changed?
    I don't know, but that's what I got out of it
    I think it's sad how people who call themselves true fans wont listen to them anymore because they dont look the same way they did five years ago
    thats retarded
    their lyrics and music are still absolutely amazing, and it blows my mind every time i listen to a song
    to those fans who don't like dir en grey now because how they look and their music style
    you were never a true fan to begin with

    My OpinionThis song is absolutely incredible, it speaks to me very well.

    I do not know if this is the point Kyo is trying to get across but to me, it is a song about, people who waste their life with going along with society. For those who want to give up on life, for being too scared to be themselves.

    General CommentI don't Dir en Grey (particularly Kyo) is arrogant enough to worry about the fans who prefer their older music. I, myself am more worried about the people who refuse to acknowledge that era simply because of their appearance at the time. Dir en Grey has always had HUGE variations to their music. Even on the same album, compare Akuro no Oka to Zan.
    This song seems to be about viewing different contridictions within oneself and trying, though not well, to make an interpertation of them. Self-reflection is often insanely difficult.

    General CommentI definitely agree with Iovereplica's interpretation. Watch the extended music video, and it will all become clear.
