Shourisha-tachi No Banka (Domon Version)

The Victors' Elegy (Domon Version)

Sung by: Seki Tomokazu (Domon Kasshu)

Translated by: Mina-P (Email: Minako@senshigakuen.com)

Version 2.00


Note: This is the best performance I've ever heard in my life. The song is cheesy as anything in its over-dramatic Gundam-y goodness. The lyrics make me want to laugh. Seki-san doesn't quite stay on pitch the entire time. But Seki-san sings the pants off of this song. I've literally never heard anyone put so much effort into a song in my life. He puts so much into it that it rockets past being even pretty good to being one of the best songs I've heard. It makes me want to go out there and fly a Gundam to my death. I don't think anyone will deny that it's probably all because Seki-san's so excited to be starring in a Gundam series. He and Midorikawa Hikaru can get together and play with Hikaru-san's models.


moyase sono hitomi ni     tomoshita

honoo ni     inochi o kakete

dareka ga     omae o     yondeiru

shouri o tsukamu made

Burning     Ignited in     those eyes

You risk your life     in the flame

Someone     is calling     to you

Until you grasp victory


atsui     sono karada ni     nagareru

chishio ni     kokoro o yudane

ai no tame ni     shineru asa o

sagashiteiru no ka

Hot     Running throughout     that body

You entrust your heart     to the flowing blood

Are you searching for     the morning

When you can die for love


kizutsuki taoreta karada o     yuuhi ga someagete

kanashimi sae mo     itsuka yuuki ni kawaru darou

The setting sun dyes     your wounded and broken body

Even sadness     will someday change into courage


tachiagare     nanimo osorezu ni

sora ga moeru     sekai ga sakebi o ageru

aa...     gandamu

Stand up     Fear nothing

The sky burns     The world raises a cry

Aa...     Gundam


omae no nagashita namida wa     yozora no hoshi ni naru

nagareru toki no naka de     subete wa yume ni naru

Your shed tears     become the night sky's stars

Inside of the flowing time     everything becomes dreams


tatakai wa     asu mo tsuzuku darou

mune no naka de     dareka ga sakebi o ageru

aa...     gandamu

The battle     will continue tomorrow

Inside of your heart     Someone raises a cry

Aa...     Gundam


moyase     sono hitomi ni     tomoshita

honoo ga     sekai o kaeru

dareka ga     omae o     yondeiru

shouri o tsukamu made

Burning     Ignited in     those eyes

The flame     changes the world

Someone     is calling     to you

Until you grasp victory


atsui     sono karada ni     nagareru

chishio ni     kokoro o yudane

ai no tame ni     shineru asa o

sagashiteiru no ka

Hot     Running throughout     that body

You entrust your heart     to the flowing blood

Are you searching for     the morning

When you can die for love
