Ready steady, can't hold me back
Ready steady, give me good luck
Ready steady, never look back
Let's get started, ready steady go

The scenery is blowing away, as if it's rolling forward
I'm desperate, but I won't miss my target

This unreliable map, if it burns up I don't care
The truth is buried, I grasp at it with the palm of my hand

In my dreams, I ran through quickly
The violent throbbing of the beat, that seems to be bursting open noisily
Echoing, your voice is calling out to me
As though it stops here, there is no time
Ready steady go

Even though I have countless wounds
I won't allow even a little of my soul to be snatched away
When I first met you beyond that hill
Where should I star, that's all I think about

In my dreams, I ran through quickly
The violent throbbing of the beat, that seems to be bursting open noisily
Echoing, your voice is calling out to me
As though it stops here, there is no time
Ready steady go

Ready steady, can't hold me back
Ready steady, give me good luck
Ready steady, never look back
Let's get started, ready steady go

My heart runs beneath the sky
The beginnings of my racing feelings crying out, cannot be stopped
Until this reaches you, certainly there will be changes
The hot sunlight shines beyond this road
Ready steady go
Please. Trust me.

    General CommentI caught Full Metal Alchemist on Adult Swim once, and when I heard this opening song I immediately had to find out what it was. It's full of energy; it's great.

    General Commentumm... okay, this is a great song for songmeanings because it's obvious that no one knows what it means because it's in Japanese! Maybe this will help:


    Sceneries being blown away seem to whirl in front of me
    Even if I get desperate, I won't overlook my target anymore

    An unreliable map should be burnt
    I'll grasp onto the buried truth with my hands

    I came running frantically -hastily-
    The throb of my heartbeats feels deafening enough to burst
    Your voice is echoing -shouting-
    There's no time to be like standing still here
    READY STEADY GO

    Even if my countless wounds get hugged
    For a moment and gently, I won't let my soul get taken
    On the other side of that hill, if I met you
    I'd only think about what to start talking from

    I came running frantically -hastily-
    The throb of my heartbeats feels deafening enough to burst
    Your voice is echoing -shouting-
    There's no time to be like standing still here
    READY STEADY GO

    READY STEADY CAN'T HOLD ME BACK
    READY STEADY GIVE ME GOOD LUCK
    READY STREADY NEVER LOOK BACK
    LET'S GET STARTED READY STEADY GO

    My heart -runs- underneath that sky
    I can't stop my idle feelings from crying out
    Surely I'll -reach- you in a little while
    The sunlight shines hotly across this path
    READY STEADY GO
    PLEASE. TRUST ME.


    Now... Chew on THAT for a while!

    General CommentThis is a really great song and opening for Fullmetal Alchemist.
    I's surprised that only a few people commented on it.
