On the day of the black moon, as my pupils dilate.
The black cat hung yesterday, only the eyes still glint sharply

On the day of the red moon, the cat watches me,
its pupils dilate.
The meat and the rotten mass,
"I've got 4 screws loose in my head"
Isn't that romantic ?

Please god save me, I wanna put an end to it
put an end to my life right away, and hang my pitiful body.

white powder, expose my naked belly,
the psycho night when wings develop.
white powder, expose my naked belly,
the psycho moonlit night and the romanticist.

On the moonless night,
I started to speak to the wall with my lower half...
even past eighteen I still have wet dreams
speaking of which you're a porno mag.

You're surely with me, putting the white powder on the spoon,
cook it over the fire, it bubbles up and melts,
then melts into this pitiful body.
My head spins, the room spins, here it comes.
Please god save me, I wanna put an end to it,
put an end to my life right way, and hang my pitiful body.

white powder, expose my naked belly,
the psycho night when wings develop.
white powder, expose my naked belly,
the psycho moonlit night and the romanticist.

a clean right hand is your hand, gradually getting uglier.
From the marrow of your bones GOD
the phantasmagoric right brain tells
natural genius, developed genius, grave sin
"That" I know, "That" I have, "That" I shoot up. BAD.

The white bed I wait in, an injection,
you, who is only my right hand,
entwining fingers, interlocking fingers with "that kind of me"
bound in the chastity belt, so very pretty and thin,
little by little by little I got sick of you.
So I hung you.

    General CommentAh, Kyo. Gotta love him, the short, sexy maniac that he is. Yes, the song is obviously about cocaine and masturbation, but there's more to it. In my opinion, the song is about one half of him arguing with the other--one half that knows what he's doing is wrong, the other half not caring and enjoying. The "you" he speaks of is one of the halves. The chastity belt is perhaps the "good" him trying to force the "bad" to stop, or perhaps it's the "bad" mocking the good. The end is one of the 'halves' shutting up the other, either symbolically killing him, or he could be committing suicide to shut up *both* halves.
    Wow. Trying to understand Kyo is *not* an easy task!

    General CommentDid anyone else notice the title? I spent ages thinking "What the hell is Egnirys Cimredopyh? I know its not Japanese." Then I noticed... Its Hypodermic Syringe backwards. If everyone else already figured that out, sorry. I just want to share my enlightenment.

    General CommentUmm...you generally do not inject cocaine, people! It's heroin he's singing about...just like to clear that up. Cocaine is usually snorted...

    General CommentI'll point out again, that no, Deepshadow.. Kyo wrote the lyrics for this song, as he does for ALL Dir en grey's songs. *sigh*
    Yes, I always assumed this song was about heroin.. considering he makes references to freebasing, and the song is 'hypodermic syringe' spelled backwards.
    And, well.. I think everything that needs to be said has been. ^^

    General CommentNo. They don't. They write MUSIC for their songs, yes. But Kyo writes all the lyrics. In every one of their albums he's credited for writing them, if you just bother to take a look.

    General Commentwell, everyone who's posted here already intimidates the fuck out of me because i am not a diru-obsessed kid... but. i do have something to add to this discussion. i was told that "hypodermic" is a censored word in japan and in order to avoid censorship, kyo wrote it backwards. it doesnt make sense to me because hypodermic isnt even a japanese word, but... this is the story.
