aLIEz (lyrics translation that makes sense)

Sooo how to translate this shit so it will make a sense? Not to look like "Don't-Life-War Lie-Soldier-War-World" nonsence? I've seen a lot of translations like that so let's take a look at the original kanji.

☆愛-same-CRIER 愛撫-save-LIAR
Eid-聖-Rising HELL
愛してるGame 世界のDay
Don\'t-生-War Lie-兵士-War-World
Eyes-Hate-War
A-Z Looser-Krankheit-Was IS das? 

愛-same-CRIER 愛撫-save-LIAR
Aid-聖-Rising HELL
I\'ll-ness Reset-End じゃない Burst
Don\'t-生-War Lie-兵士-War-World
Eyes-Hate-War
A-Z 想像High-de-Siehst YOU das? 


First let's transliterate it and get the romaji. There are plenty of japanese, english and german words XD

Ai-same-CRIER  aibu-save-LIAR
Eid-sei-Rising HELL
Aishiteru Game sekai no Day
Don't-sei-War  Lie-heishi-War-World
Eyes-Hate-War
A-Z Looser-Krankheit-Was IS das?

Ai-same-CRIER  aibu-save-LIAR
Aid-sei-Rising HELL
I'll-ness Reset-End ja nai Burst
Don't-sei-War  Lie-heishi-War-World
Eyes-Hate-War
A-Z Souzou High-de-Siehst YOU das?

Yeah so I actually think the kanji is just a play with words and what should be translated is what is she singing. The first character 愛, meaning LOVE, can be read as AI. Also english "I" can be romanized as AI so I think the first line shouldn't be "Love same crier"  but "I same crier" (starting to make a sense a little).

生 means LIFE and it's pronounced as SEI. Japanese write english "say" as SEI so I translated it like that: "Don't say war" instead of "Don't life war" ^_^ then Aibu becomes I've, Eid -> I'd, I'll-ness -> Illness, at least I think so. Same goes to the title, shouldn't it be Allies? There's a LIE in the word so it shows that allies can lie to you. Isn't it?

english
I'm the same CRIER, I've saved a LIAR
I'd say RISING HELL
I love you, one day in the game world
Don't say WAR, lie, soldier, war, world
Eyes hate war
A-Z looser and illness, what does it mean?

I'm the same CRIER, I've saved a LIAR
I'd say RISING HELL
Illness resets it but it's not the END, burst!
Don't say WAR, lie, soldier, war, world
Eyes hate war
A-Z imagination is high, can you see it?


So it'd be better like this! I think so. (I haven't seen the anime tho). The rest is my imagination XD. Not sure what is HEISHI. Sorry if someone has already done this before me x3!

  2. This is interesting, I like how you've translated the chorus. Your theory on the title is one I hadn't thought of.
    I think it's called aLIEz because 'Lie' is between 'a' and 'z' (the beginning and end of the alphabet), meaning "a lie from the beginning to the end", which effectively captures the spirit of the song.
