TASTE MAXIMUM
Performed by: FAKE?
Translated by: Mina-P (Email: Minako@senshigakuen.com)
Version 1.00

Note: Made up of former Luna Sea guitarist Inoran and half-British singer Ken Lloyd, FAKE? is a really great rock duo. Their first single, TASTE MAXIMUM is one of my favorites. If you love a song with heavy, driving guitar, and don't mind Ken screaming "SHUT UP" to you for 4-1/2 minutes, you have to check out this song. Besides, Ken conveniently writes lyrics that are mostly English. Arigato, Ken~!


Shut down 'cause I'm getting bitter
Fucked up gonna make it better
Making it hurt, mix it with dirt, break and attack
Never give up 'til I've wrecked the day
Used to be yours, soon to be mine
Take what I know they'll never give us
Shut up Shut up

Shut down everything that you know
Head down while I get you repaired
subete no mono wa     imi nado nai
omae wa mita furi de     gomakashi na
and I love to be, I love to be
tamerau na     furero     kowarete     furikire
Shut up Shut up

Shut down everything that you know
Head down while I get you repaired
Everything is     meaningless
You are just as you seem     a sham
and I love to be, I love to be
Don't hesitate     touch     break down     shake it off
Shut up Shut up


Bite down and taste the flavor
Get up 'cause I can get down
Exploding heads with bass sounds
No fucker inside gets out
Deflowered and so tripped out
So high you can't get back down
I need to taste maximum high

Shut down 'cause I'm taking it all
You don't have to tell me I'm totally beautiful
kuchita yume de     subete o umena
ooku no muimi na raretsu o     tanoshimina
ruupu shite mukou no keshiki o     nagamena
Shut up Shut up

Shut down 'cause I'm taking it all
You don't have to tell me I'm totally beautiful
Bury everything     in rotten dreams
Have fun     counting up all those meaningless things
Look at     the looping scenery over there
Shut up Shut up


Bite down and taste the flavor
Get up 'cause I can get down
Exploding heads with bass sounds
No fucker inside gets out
Deflowered and so tripped out
So high you can't get back down
I need to taste maximum high

Love all my fantasies
Drown in my vanity
Song of the century
Drown in my everything
